  1. welcome from another chislehurst lotus owner
  2. He should join the great guitar build off 2020, if he’s good he’ll get great exposure. Check out crimson guitars for more info.
  3. Not me, haven’t had the car out since lockdown
  4. I’ve had this when opening a new topic on my iPhone XS
  5. 3) Is it possible that sometimes you take longer to get in and start the car? I think there is a timer after unlocking the doors before the immobiliser will re-engage, so if you faff around, by the time you need to start the car it has been immobilised? Can't remember the timeout but it's not very long, 30 seconds / 1 minute?
  6. Ah, for me it is repeat the process to get race, maybe it's not possible on later models but that would seem odd.
  7. All off is achieved but turning the switch clockwise and holding, this will engage Race. Repeat in Race mode and that will disable it. Edit to add: I have a V6 with the metal switch.
  8. Never use Race mode (I was on the Lotus 10/10ths day - it's a great system but I enjoy doing the diving). Usually start with Sport first thing in the morning if I don't know the track then all off.
  9. I needed pads fitting ASAP (hope to be at Spa on Monday) and the ones BoT had we Performance Friction so will be testing those out soon. Supposed to be much better than the DS2500s (which I liked) and last a little longer too.
  10. Very nice, I do feel the 380 is the sweet spot for the Exige. What made you chop in the Elise Cup, was it a 220 or 250?
  11. Cost cutting. It started towards the end of the V6 S before the 350 was introduced.
  12. If the road is greasy or muddy the cup 2s are as brown as the road. A good track tyre but if it’s a daily driver I’d go a little more sensible.
  13. Sorry, won't be able to make it think evening - hope you all have a good one - I'll try my best for next month.
  14. I'll see if I can make it also - think I've only made 1 so far - lol
  15. Not superstitious but I do salute magpies
  16. I don’t think the extra panel actually secured the roof, it just tidies up the inside. I’ve never not fitted it to my roof though.
  17. I will be going. I hear bilster berg are asking too much this year so that might not be one the cards
  18. Thanks for some insider knowledge. Do you track the car often? If so, has it been a problem??
  19. Having started this thread and since driven a new 250 cup I can’t see it being a problem in track. I’m still unsure whether to fit a larger fuel tank to my v6 or get a cup for a year and store my v6. If I’m buying one for a year it wouldn’t be a new one - I was considering buying a new 250 as a keeper. no decision made yet. edit: they are both great cars
  20. Don’t joke, I am considering storing my exige for a year whilst I play with an Elise cup!
  21. Yes they are very expensive. I like the idea of carbon sills and heating surrounds just to make the cockpit feel different. But the external carbon is very nice, little worried on how much it lasts.
  22. Damn it, I’ve been talking myself out of a cup and keeping my exige, this doesn’t help. what carbon mods do you have ?
