  1. Past hour
  2. @Jedifar do contact them and ask for export prices. I believe those pricese are with French road tax, which is quite big. However I don't think you can find 430 Cup for less than 120k€ (VAT excluded).

    Wordle 335 3/6 ⬜🟨🟨🟨🟨 🟨🟩⬜🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 I guessed this 5-letter word in 3/6 tries. ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 Can you guess this word?
  5. Very interesting website - thanks for the link
  6. That’s interesting as I had bought a Wi-Fi camera, but before AIM, that linked to my iPhone. I could never get the signal to function properly due to all the steel and also it wasn’t a quality device. But that’s, that’s interesting cheers
  7. Today
  8. There are pictures of an ex-red Esprit S3 repainted in Triumph British Racing Green on top of the following web page:
  9. The official line is this ”With ESP deactivated only the ABS and HBA ( Hydraulic Brake Assist ) system are still active However with the Cup430 you also have the additional Lotus VTC which has 6 settings, 1 of which is off. With ESP and Traction Control off there should be no electronic intervention.
  10. I have this: ease of use and wiring. The receiver is already in place, connected to the dash. Which is why I want the software update to enable. Then I’ll connect the rear end.
  11. It’s the AiM camera: I’m not surprised at the Lotus response to the camera requests. AiM announced the MX2e for the Lotus Elise back around Jan/Feb 2020. My car was in build at that point, delivery due March 2020 and we all know what happened then🙄. As soon as I saw the unit advertised I contacted Lotus and asked it, Lotus responded by saying that it wasn’t a Lotus product and fitting it would affect my warranty in respect of anything connected to it😦. May 2020 arrived and my car was still locked inside Hethel half built and then Lotus announced that the AiM dash was now a fully supported product.. I contacted Jamie at B&C and he managed to get a unit to fit on my car pre delivery, the car was finally delivered June. I don’t think B&C had actually fitted one because I remember them ringing me and asking where I wanted the rear view camera fitting. Delivery of my car was late but I wouldn’t have purchased the AiM unit after delivery so it was a good thing in a way😄
  12. I sent the following, to [email protected] on Monday. No reply yet. Good Morning, I wonder if you can help. I own an Elise Cup 250 FE with the AIM dash and I’m disappointed that I cannot use a gps unit or reverse camera. AIM say the MXLotus needs software update but it is not their device it is a Lotus device. Lotus after sales say it’s an AIM device and there’s nothing they can do. So, as a customer of Lotus (3rd new Lotus) and have an Emira on order, I am disappointed that us Final Edition owners have been left out in the cold with an unsupported product. Please advise. Regards,
  13. Another IPS, although the ad is misleading and says manual. It says registered in 2015, but car looks like pre MY12 Evora. And it says Evora S but looks like a NA.
  14. Ok, we considered removing them. We decided not to. We did what you asked now get those ports open or the Ukrainians will have some nice new torpedoes wandering about the Black Sea looking for something to latch on to.
  15. Yesterday
  16. Does your Xpel have any seems? I was told the car was too curvey to be without seems...
  17. I'm only in sport currently. No one can confirm if ESP off in race is totally off?

  19. Damn should have asked them when they came to visit us in NZ last week! I even asked Matt Windle a different question and totally forgot about the AiM dash 😂
  20. The three Lotus people I'm emailing are: Geoff Dowding (Executive Director, Sales and AfterSales) Chris Hinks (AfterSales Director) Tony Parfitt (Regional AfterSales) Standard email format for Lotus employees is: First Initial followed by surname Keep it polite (just asking, not demanding) and see if you have any luck... My email was: >>> As a recent purchaser of a Final Edition Elise 240, I’ve found the new TFT digital display very good - however with just a few more tweaks it would be perfect… One of the main missing features is that although the dash unit has input for a reversing camera (which is available from the manufacturer Aim sport systems) the software in the dash is unable to detect it. I have enquired from Aim sport systems as to if they will bring out a firmware upgrade to enable this, but they state that it is up to Lotus to request this - not them. Aim separately sell the Lotus-specific dash called M2XE which does support this and many other missing features - and they only want to sell me this version, however I feel I’ve already paid for it in the form of the Lotus version in my Final Edition. Is there some chance that Lotus could ask Aim to provide an upgrade to the Final Edition dash to provide at least this basic safety feature?
  21. ☝️ That was the same car that Andrew Frankel was driving: Expect all of the reviews on 7th June.
  22. Another IPS Sports Racer S up on Autotrader for £50k with 17,000 miles (Pewter grey, same as mine). I have a feeling this one was advertised elsewhere last May for £48k at around 13,000 miles! Surely unlikely to sell at that price, especially given how long the two at Hendy have been up for, both of which have been reduced recently.
  23. Like any other clutch, it will start slipping when it is showing signs of excessive wear.
  24. Maybe share the email and write us a template and we can all pester them!
  25. I've emailed Lotus again yesterday, as a followup to my request/enquiry a month or so ago... No response as yet. Will keep pestering them until I get a response, or they block my emails! ("The squeaky wheel gets the oil"...)
  26. I took the head and gasket to Mike Taylor today and he found the problem, the two roll pins that stick out of the top of the block and go through the gasket then into matching holes in the head were bottoming out in the head holes. All this is because I had had the head ground so holes in the head were not deep enough to take the pins. on looking closely at the gasket he could see that there was a sign of leaking slightly on all four cylinders on the exhaust side. I will trim back the pins and put it all together again.
