  1. At least mine looks like it was designed by somebody with eyes ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. The more I look at those mirrors, the more I dislike them. Really not keen on the raised lip around the edge. For me, theyโ€™re ok, but disappointing for the price.
  3. Nice work with the mirror. I decided on something I think is more aesthetically pleasing, and only a little smaller than standard. (You may be able to see the entire rear window with yours, but probably not with both eyes at once). I used the Mirror from an SLK/Audi TT/R8/Carrera GT. Cut the grooved mounting point from the very "foot" of the original mirror. Dremmelled out the mounting point on the new mirror until the standard mounting part could fit inside, then bonded it in place, filled any gaps with P38, sanded off all the embossed text on the rear of the mirror, and painted the whole thing to get a uniform shade of matt black.
  4. Let us know if you find a good solution! This is the worst thing about the car
  5. Needs a bigger wing ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿคฃ Seriously though, looking great. Where are the reverse and fog lamps?
  6. Oh, Iโ€™m definitely tempted to come along and see the car. Might even say hello to its owner too ๐Ÿ˜€
  7. I think the satin finish should look great ๐Ÿ‘ I put a matt/satin finish on the interior bits of my S1 by wet sanding the lacquer with very fine sandpaper.
  8. I had my callipers painted without even removing them front the car. The finish is great, and it seems very hard wearing. As George says, theyโ€™re baked naturally with every use ๐Ÿ˜€
  9. @GFWilliams so you do want it thrown at your windscreen! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. @GFWilliams air is fairly good at going around corners! Itโ€™s not about getting a fast jet of air, just equalising pressure.
  11. Iโ€™d have thought the best compromise to prevent stones and crap being thrown at the windscreen would be not to directly align the vent in the wheel arch liner with the vent in the clam.
  12. I've fitted Focal 100AC front speakers, and matching Focal 130AC rears. This made a huge difference. Was previously thinking I'd need a sub as well, but shan't bother as these speakers are adequate for my needs. I'd love to have a simple fixed-screen Car Play compatible head unit, but the only available options seem to be Chinese branded Android units. Some people seem to have used these to good effect, but I'd want to get the opinion of somebody I trust before parting with any money. Excuse the dodgy orientation, but here's my current solution for navigation. MagSafe mount attached under the dash, so my phone forms a bridge between the gear selector and the heater panel. Not idea, but the most aesthetically pleasing solution I've found so far.
  13. Don't know if it's true, but I was told that was intentional. Story was that as the Exige was always supposed to be be like the road version of a race version of the Elise, they wanted to create the impression of a homologation special, looking like a race car that's been retro fitted with the necessary bits to make it road legal. I'm not completely convinced by that argument, but it makes some sense, and I find the lamps less offensive with that idea in mind.
  14. April!? Anybody else feel they've messed up the timing of these teasers? I'm already bored with these silly little snippets, though at least it felt like they were leading to a full reveal in the next couple of weeks.
  15. No need to be like that! Arthritis can challenge the best of us! My choice was Auto, or no more V6 powered Lotus.
