    Returning to forum....aspiring to a series 3!!

    This has just been reduced tonight Dave - good value for an S4!*%26nqt%3DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAEUAQAAAAAABACAIAAAwAQAAAAAAgAIAEQAKBAAQEAAQAAAFAAACAAABBAAAAACAAEBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAEAAhAAAQAAAAACIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACAAAEAAAAgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAg*%26ec%3D1%26sojTags%3Des%3Des%2Cnqc%3Dnqc%2Cnqt%3Dnqt%2Cec%3Dec%2Cexe%3Dexe%2Cext%3Dext%2Cbu%3Dbu%26srcrot%3De11070.m3698.l7534%26rvr_id%3D0%26rvr_ts%3D03464cc01660a994c271851afff051f1&ul_noapp=true No idea why the link is so long......😬
  8. On my cup 380 I recently tried 5-7 compression and 9-6 rebound (front-rear). Works very well! Next time I will try to reduce rebound by 1-2 clicks.
  9. Today I tried to swap rear tyres of my Exige 380 Cup. To do that I need to be able to remove both tyres at same time, at least for a couple of minutes. I managed to lift a side of the car, however I noted that both the front and rear tyres were lifted together. This is a problem , because I cannot lift both sides together (my plan was to use two Jacks to lift rear tyres and keep front tyres on the ground). I am sure there should be an easy way, without removing the rear pannel on the bottom to get access to the other jacking points. Could you please help? Unfortunately I do not have another set of tyres to use as temporary replacement for the swap I also have a couple of standing jacks.. but not sure how to use them. Thanks!

    Evora Picture & Video Thread

    Very few pics taken today some of you will be relieved to hear - spent all my time driving. Left my overnight B&B in Montigny-les-Monts at 0930........ ...... then it was just a short drive, albeit in the opposite direction to where I really should have been heading, to my favourite producer to collect 12 bottles of his finest cidre fermier brut - not exactly following the 'added lightness' edict I know.......... .........9 hours, 2 pitstops and 550 miles later, it was a quick stretch of my legs before the Evora got a good workout through the Pyrenees........ ....... for a further 2 hours and 100 miles to arrive at my stop for tonight in Santpedor in Catalunya. As it was dark on arrival exterior pics will need to wait until the morning but suffice to say that whilst it might not look it from outside, the interior is petrolhead heaven......... Damn cheek of the 911 guy pinching my reserved parking spot though!......
  11. Going to repeat this process with these guys.......

    Dealer relationship

    @C8RKH thats just awkward and very embarrassing for the dealer. About time HQ start sending follow up emails to check on dealers. BMW U.K. do this, voluntary of course.. If you’ve had an issue they’ll grill them and make sure you’re sorted out!! You don’t do the chasing they do. Performance Bonuses etc depend on good customer service/experience... Its an obvious thing for Geely to implement. I feel agitated just reading your post... ffs, why don’t people check the car before handing it back?!🤬
  14. Doh.....after further inquiry......they ceased trading on 31st August...... Frikkin typical......3 weeks too late
  15. I'm coming to the realisation that the Lotus Position is not something I should be doing so much nowadays. The worst part of this conversion is brake pedal removal for drilling, involving lengthy contortions under the dash. I'll be in pain for days...

    Euro question - 23rd June

    And Macron is the worst of them. Seems determined to punish the UK. About time some of the smaller EU countries stood up to the French and Germans because surely they are the ones who will suffer most from us withdrawing from the EU

    Useless Facts about anything

    Not quite "useless facts" but fun all the same is a book called "What If?" by Randall Munroe, 2014. It tries to sensibly answer lots of stupid questions like "what if everyone in the USA jumped - would there be an earthquake in China?" or "how long until Facebook has more dead people than living?" To be fair, most of the answers are based in semi-fact/science and result in death of everyone involved (usually the human race) And this includes the first question above!! But not for the reason you might first expect. Oh, and to follow on the elephant pseudo-fact, As you walk along a flat road, approx 3-4x your body weight is applied through each of your kneecaps at each step. Walk downstairs and that goes up to 10x. Thats why they crunch, old guys. However, the red kangaroo, despite its leaping and jumping prowess, lacks a bony kneecap. (although perhaps that makes sense given the above facts)

    Paint finish and Gtechniq

    I can't remember offhand @Techyd but it was pretty small - a little goes a long way. I'm currently overnighting in the Catalan foothills of the Pyrenees otherwise I'd offer to go take a look at the bottle for you, 😁.
  19. Thanks Bibs, tickets received. Just need to fit a windscreen to the 2-11 to accommodate the windscreen sticker 😀 Paul

    Good luck with the hunt. You should be able to get a project car for that cash.

    Euro question - 23rd June

    How very true. The ONLY real problem with France is their ruling elite in Paris. France had a revolution to get rid rid of the ruling Elite but they just replaced them with others that are worse.

    Esprit distributor cap

    Think we all agree on this. If you haven't already, remove the plenum cover to give decent access. Also consider removing the dizzy to check what the issue is. Its straightforward with the plenum removed. No more than 20 mins to remove and check.

    Dealer relationship

    You can be even more defiant and go Independent in Warranty to. As long as they use OEM parts and materials and follow the service schedule your warranty is unaffected. Though I understand why people go with the Dealer whilst in warranty.

    Esprit distributor cap

    Its not hard on an NA to remove the distributor with minimal dismantling. May be different on a turbo though I guess. Would let you look at it closer. Clips should be finger pressure only. Does one go on but not the other? If so, its not lined up. Also its not hard to get things stuck under the cap preventing it seating correctly, even though you still get the feeling it is. The clips also have a tendency to slide out of their nooks in the main distributor body. This stops them shutting. Its usually the lower one that does this. Typical!

    Exige 380 noise level

    any news regarding the KT db eater efficiency ?
  26. IcemanTM

    350 vs 410/430

    The 350 is almost half price of the last duo. The chargecooled performances justify the double price? Or better a 350 with nirron and a bigger wing?
