Which lambda to buy?

Hey all,

So my Prelude's lambda died on me, so I need a new one. But while I was surfing on the internet I found 2 different types (well I think they are different). Here are the links, and can someone tell me what the difference is and which one I should buy? Thanks!

Honda Prelude 2.0 133PS '99

1st link
2nd link

To clarify myself, the thing I don't get is, that the first link looks different then the second link. Thanks again!

no matter, just make sure that it has the compatible plug which your car does

just go to some auto part store and ask that they give you the right one?

or take your current one off and check which kind of plug it has and then go to auto part store. when I ordered one from online, they sended me one which had the wrong plug so we had to cut it off and use the old

I've changed my lambda, but do I need to "reset" it?

Pull the ECU fuse.

-or-

Disconnect the battery.

-or-

Unplug the ECU from the harness.

If you disconnect the battery and have a factory head unit, be sure you have the code!
