  1. Stunning Paul, welcome to TLF
  2. At least you get free shipping as an FFM and they're £50 cheaper than buying them direct!
  3. Correct part number is B132B4169J. I can check on Monday if they are in stock at the factory for you?
  4. Exactly! You can register an EV for a £10 annual fee and not pay the CC & I believe they can travel through the ULEV without registering. It's just a cash cow, how are the worse polluters, taxis and buses, exempt.
  5. Ended to soon but that's mucho rapido! 7.30 BTG?
  6. @Mike Kimberley told me this would be the future about 12 years ago!
  7. 👍 Not at wheels have them and they're sometimes on the inside of the rim and sometimes on the outside. More often the inside though, depends on the wheel manufacturer.
  8. Most cars have TPMS nowadays, the garage should be fine as long as you tell them they are there. The red dot is the highest part of the tyre, it should be on the lowest spot of the wheel (they sometimes have a tiny dimple in the rim to show this so less balance weights are needed but again the tyre place should know this, it's what they do after all! If there's a yellow dot, that's the heaviest part of the tyre and should be mounted opposite the valve.
  9. You're gonna miss her but I'm sure there's going to be a nice replacement for you soon enough mate!
  10. As mentioned, Elise's are very sensitive to tyre pressures (if fact most Lotus cars are) so I'd not say it's a common trait. I've never driven one I'd describe as skittish to be honest and to be fair, I can't imagine a dealer would keep an eye on them beyond it's pre-sale checks if they're diligent or if a tyre is properly flat.
  11. Solaris Yellow. More here -
  12. I think the glovebox is also causing an issue in this situation
  13. This is from a while back where I used to live. At the end of a cul de sac. Can you imagine how much the council would have been charged for it too!
  14. @rudolphwolven is the previous owner Congratulations, that's been a much loved car and will give you many happy miles and memories
  15. Tread depth and tyre condition are quite unrelated. I'd personally not drive any sort of performance car on tyres over 6 years old, the rubber really doesn't age well past then. @rallyesax might be able to give us more of an insight.
