  1. Past hour
  2. I assumed it was there to stop any flex in the body from causing an irritating squeak whenever you go over a bump.
  3. Newbie from Vegas

    My name's Tony. I recently purchased a 2007 Lotus Exige S.

  8. Evora GT430

    What is it about Lotus cars that makes them look so good in so many vastly different colours? Very many cars only look right in a limited number of colours, but with every modern Lotus I've seen, you could choose pretty much any colour from a wide ranging palette and it just suits it! I'd pretty much decided on the colour I want when I order my Evora, but that red throws all that into confusion again. I love it!!! and I agree about that splitter. The detail in it is just lovely.
  9. 2-Eleven values

    I think it's a sure thing when you look at 340R and S1 Exige prices. As ever though, only the low mileage pampered examples will fetch the top prices and if you pay it you'll not want to use it which would be a massive shame. 2-11 is the only car I truely regret selling, not because of it's 'investment' value, but because it's just such a fantastic, fun thing to own.

    Currently in my garage alongside the Esprit...
  11. Hello From Boston, USA

    Welcome to TLF John. Looking forward to seeing the photos once it rocks up to your place. Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help.
  12. Welcome to TLF Brian. You should duck over to the Introductions thread and say hi in there as well.
  13. elite to ressurect

    Welcome Tom nice to see another Elite going to a good owner. I love mine and will never sell it off, even i times i could set fire to it and dance around it naked.
  14. Evora GT430

    They've done a great job f the front which makes the whole car look like a wide body car, same with the aggressive rear end. Looking forward to seeing a whole car but still difficult to forgive Lotus for the way they launched the car. Trevor.
  15. Tyre pressure lamp

    Problem with going to a dealership is that there isn't one where I live - Malta, otherwise I would have done so as the car is still under warranty. The closest is Rome in Italy. Thanks B30M. Will try out your suggestion of overinflating.
  16. Evora GT430

    I have splitter envy
  17. Show us your Garage

    I think they were giving the posters out at some Lotus event many moons ago, I just put them in frames. The wife wouldn't allow them (or the pool table) in the house so they got sent to the garage .
  18. TLF Indoor Cover for Evora...

    More with the JPS color scheme cover for the Sport 410 GP. Thank you Bibs...
  19. I fitted closed cell foam to the top/front of the chassis of the S1. And also in the body shell tunnel. Harder to compress, but 10mm should be fine. Better than the original material.

  21. Evora GT430

    Looks better every time I see it. Trevor.
  22. Evora GT430

    I'm just catching up on this thread...congrats @The Pits! I had a feeling this was coming, excellent choice for what will be a very special car, the wait will be completely worth it!
  23. Help me deciding pls!!

    thank you all, you have indeed helped me out; now i just have to rent one for a weekend
  24. I had a similar problem with mine when one tyre was under 24PSI. I reinflated the tyre but the tyre Leighton the dash stayed on and although the readout on the dash showed the right pressure it was still flashing. Tried disconnecting the battery, still the same. I finished up overinflating all the tyres to about 38PSI and that reset the dash, reset the tyres to the correct pressures and all is fine. Hope this works for you.

  26. I have now fitted the Falken's. Seem fine, look good and no noticable difference as far I can tell from the 235 to new 225 rear tyre size. £300 fitted for full set seems pretty good value too.
  27. elite to ressurect

    The 911 engine was the one fitted to the Lotus Sunbeam so it will be a 2.2ltr. It should be the Getrag gearbox.
  28. @skiing have you made any progress with your suspension? I too will be looking to do something for my '81 Turbo and like the idea of the later adjustable height shocks. Anyone done the mod as per @hilly description on LEW? Hilly, still ok 10 years down the line?
