  1. I recently got offered £24k and £27K for my 2013 V6S, on a couple of part ex deals. Full dealer service, good condition, 1 previous owner, 31k mileage. What a joke, so greedy.
  2. I wanted to give this a go too but wasn't sure how to hold it in place, any advice where to get the 'air straightener'? Also any risk of the glue coming off, going into the engine? Cheers
  3. Ah, I have this problem too, not rev past 5500, have to clear the codes via a scanner
  4. I purchased a Veepeak OBDCheck BLE OBD2 Bluetooth from Amazon last night, should be here today. Planning to use in conjunction with Torque Pro. Will let you know what it's like.
  5. Have you seen the QuickJacks? Goonzquad use them a lot (youtubers), they look pretty effective. https://www.costco.co.uk/Tyres-Automotive/Automotive/Trolley-Jacks-Axle-Stands/QuickJack-Portable-Automatic-Car-Lift-System-Jack-2268kg-Capacity-Model-BL-5000SLX/p/1268102
  6. Nice one, I did the 10 mins idle and did a 30 mile run, very low revs. Now sounds ace, and feels urgent on the throttle. I was surprised how much crap gets into the engine bay, given the undertray etc. I am concerned more crap can get in now I've removed that ginormous airbox and piping.
  7. Oh yeah Alias23 induction fitted, ran in, sounds awesome, now have to buy the rear louver cover to hide the massive hole the existing air box left Weirdly I now have three lights that come up consecutively like a rev thingy, then sometimes flash all at once for a second (all three) then drop off, didnt do this before. Looks cool though. I have a query... the relocation of the solenoid (see pic) I noticed it got really hot - as in couldnt touch it. Is this normal? BTW ignore how dirty my engine bay looks, I didnt even know it could get like that until I removed all the guff around
  8. I'd love to swap out my rear glass but can not justify the cost, shame its not cheaper
  9. Hi there, was wondering whether a Lotus Elise and Exige S2 carpet set would fit a V6S? Cheers
  10. Thanks, just found it on DeRoure... Position: 02a Part Number: A120B0452F Description: Decal, 'L O T U S', silver 537mm long Notes: On rear transom - Sport 350 Qty on Car: 1 Price (each): £38.62 @Edinburgh 111s Which ring in your GRP's have the reflectors? Cheers
  11. Loving that matt bandit mask, did your car come with it or did you get it done, looks like the LOTUS letters are printed on it?
  12. If you have the built-in reflectors does it spoil part of the look?
  13. Hi, one of my front shocks is leaking pretty bad and I need to replace it. I don't track the car so would OEM be a better option for the road? If so, does anyone know the torque settings? Many thanks
  14. I've been thinking the same for a while, either plow money into mods and keep it or jump into a different car. AMG GT s looks tempting. I can't warm to the idea upgrading to a 380, think I'd be looking at 25-30k to trade up from a V6S, is it worth it?
  15. Hi all, I fancy having the rear matt black, would it be better to vinyl wrap or spray? Can anyone recommend anyone that could do this? How to they get the lotus letters in the right place? Cheers
