Sorry didn't revisit this post,it's the pre cat exhaust sensor,have you got the problem sorted?
Car starts on the button and idles well now thanks. Did pull a fault code for pre cat O2 sensor so thats the next step as you mentioned.
Been a problem child this one. She drove it home the other week with a broken water pump tensioner. Lucky not to cook the engine
Current issue feels like chronic turbo lag on light throttle only with no turbo
The quest for a reliable mini continues. . .

Yep,the thermostat housing is another common fault on these as they get older as well,if she is losing coolant that's the place to look.
