Hello David

I'd try the subaru specialists as the EJ25 engine is used across a lot of cars then

http://www.scoobyparts.com/

or

http://www.subaru4you.co.uk/parts.shtml

and there are 2 lambda sensors 1 precat and 1 post cat

the true oxygen sensor is the precat item and the more important of the two

Thanks for your answer. The seems difficult to trace I know it is fitted with a turbo and there is no XT motif on the rear so does that only leave the Forester 2.5, (EJ255), turbo, DOHC, 2457cc, 232BHP, Straight? Any other way of finding model? If I can't take parts out to Spain next week will look for clues then.
Many thanks David
