  1. Lovely car @VRCcant be many to choose from at this time of year. Congrats.
  2. At least you can park between the lines 😃
  3. That will look awesome! I was soo close to spec'ing my 250 Cup in Plum Crazy!
  4. We (a number of UK Cup 250FE purchasers) complained to Lotus about the fact that black was not an option (ok, I think they wanted £1,500 for the privilege) when the "silver" option was very different to the configurator. Just like the Cup 430 black was a NCO. In the end Lotus correctly relented and allowed us to spec black seats with coloured stitching for free. If you play with the configurator for the Exige 430 you will see that you get 4 bits colour coded with the black seats and 2 with the seat colour options. This is how the Elise 250 should have been.
  5. This is down to the seat colours. If you choose a seat cover other than black (red/blue/orange/white) then the seat harness holes and window controls stay black - so it doesn't clash with the seat colour. If you choose black seats (with any stitching) then you interior colour is done to all 4 parts.
  6. Car to point the finger to which dealer? This is an upgrade that really interests me.
  7. The hard top design is the same on the Exige as the Elise and VX220. Even the S2 Exige had a removable roof. The only thing to question is that the roadster variant of the Exige was speed limited to around 150mph - this might be due to the strength of the soft top?
  8. My vx220 used to live under a cover. Was a breathable very thin material. Never had any issues at all at that was used all year round.
  9. Mine was done by the dealer when I bought my car brand new. The hard top is removable and the roadster came with a soft top.
  10. I don't think many people option this (I haven't) due to noise restrictions at our tracks in UK/Europe. Isn't it a lot louder?
  11. So @JG220 has switched to Vivid, very nice. Isotope was definitely on my radar along with Essex blue - spec sounds great @CocoPops - didn't think you liked black wheels?
  12. They were always limited on how many could be made before they dismantle the production line.
  13. Stunning!!! What area's did you get PPF fitted to? That looks soooo shiney, did you get it ceramic coated as well? Have my order of a Fire Red 250 FE and can't wait.
  14. I was close to asking for my 250 Cup to be made in this colour - love it!
  15. Since lotus has adopted this for their cars I’d assumed the unit worked. As said above I do hope you’ve just been unlucky this time.
  16. It’s probably better if it doesn’t come with it so you can fit better stuff instead.
  17. What is missing from the FE cars? And how much/easy is the upgrade?
  18. Thanks, I fitted the AC100/AC130 in my current V6 and remember the faff it was fitting in the dash, can't actually remember how things ended up (it's that long ago I drove the car!) but the fitted well in the end.
  19. Very nice! I'm wondering whether to fit the PC range over the AC range in my new lotus. Do you think there is a winner between the two and also an improvement installing the baffles?
  20. Oil filler cap looks similar to these...
  21. Not a recommendation as such as I've never seen them but I do know these exist and from a member on here:
