    If I cook quinoa I always use a non-stick pan. That way it slides much easier into the bin.

    We do...a small business born by accident and through Esprit ownership and TLF membership, the wife and I both skilled in different trades work together in a little shed at the bottom of the garden most evenings now to produce these carpet sets for most Esprit models. Our latest addition, the allusive Turbo Esprit battery cover which we now make from ABS plastic to replace those cardboard covers that have dissolved over the years.

    Another recommend for Jack at Royal - did a first class job on mine that many have commented on.

    They either work or don’t. Issues with these sensors are well documented on here. the O2 voltage should sway all over the place just like Bibs post above. If it’s not doing that then it’s sensor or wiring at fault

    I've had mine for 15 months. I believe there's nothing like it at anywhere near the prices they are currently trading at. I have no plans to sell my car. It's met my expectations and still thrills.

    It was good to see everyone last night. Hopefully, there will be no reports of another thatched pub fire following a TLF meet!

    What is this "putting the car away for the winter"?

    My daughter took some photos a couple of weeks back before the car was put away for the winter. She's a bit more artistic then myself...

    That would be such a mistake based on my experience. Me : Can I buy a grey car? Wife: It has back seats, right? me: yep, of course Wife: GPS, right? me, yep, of course Wife: a large boot? me: yep, need to fit my golf clubs Wife : no Diesel, right? For the environment. Me: Definitely, those diesels are so dirty Wife: Reverse camera and foldable mirror for when we go to London? me: Obviously. Wife: Ok but let’s have the heated seats, that would be nice. Me: Ok, whatever you want love.

    Why not just ditch the heated rear screen as the v6 seems to do a good enough job of clearing that and then very little additional weight for the heated front screen?

    That’s nothing - I was chatting to @Steve V8 the weekend - he’s managed to make a tank of fuel last a whole year

    Maybe I'm missing something here but are we saying that a pair of Passat rear calipers are a direct replacement for the Lotus originals on an 84 TE and fit on the same mounts? If so I'm interested for my TE....🤔

    These are what you are discussing, yes they fit. Not an upgrade but a better version than the crummy girlings that have a rubbish hand brake. The cables need adapting though. Much lighter also✌️

    The only way to get this done was to get a bespoke order set up through elise shop (with no colour on any parts) and then add the komotec curved spoiler to finish the job. So if anyone else wants any carbon now is the time to join the band wagon. - side scoops cup 380 cup 380 rear tailgate – wing mirrors – front splitter - front access hatch - side skirts - rear diffuser cup 380

    Had Carbon inner sills and wing mirror covers on my 380 from Yvo at Elise and which is currently being modelled at Central Lotus. The quality was excellent and matched the standard Lotus Carbon very well

    If it weren't for a liberal application of bodywork seam-sealer around the edge of my mudflaps, they'd have parted company with the car by now as the OE brackets looked like this when I went to investigate why they were flapping (no pun intended) around................................................. I contacted @Miguel after hours on Thursday evening, a couple of emails were exchanged and by Friday lunchtime he was advising me that a pair of his stainless brackets were on their way to me by courier - fantastic service, especially as I hadn't even paid for them at that point! A package arrived about half an hour ago, and upon opening, these beauties were revealed............. Hopefully, I'll get them fitted later this week (once the weather permits working outdoors) and by their apparent quality these brackets should outlive the rest of the car.

    Hi chaps. I make stainless steel mudguard brackets, checkout the ad in the for sale section. They're 316 marine grade stainless steel so should last the lifetime of the car. Also lighter than the bog standard rusty ones ;P

    Okay, installed the FluxBeam Opt 7 (socket HB3/9005 with color 6000K) today on my LHD Exige S HID/Xenon (photo1 ): aftermarket HIDs need up to half a minute to reach full brightness and a pure white color. They come with a heavy ballast, so need more place and wiring. I was satisfied but had some kind of blind spots and the light is mostly centered to one spot in the middle (see garage door) but provides a good distance (at least at this centered point) LED (photo 2): less weight and easier to install (extremely small ballast and less wiring). LEDs start immediately with a pure white and full brightness. A much more harmonic light distribution but obviously a shorter distance (you can see it at the garage, not as bright here as HID) . The lightning to the right isn't perfect, but I'll adjust the right lamp tomorrow and try to optimize it (maybe this is also the reason why the HID is spotted mainly to the middle) So, we can't have all, but both lights are definitely better than the original halogen bulbs. So it's up to you what you prefer.
