  1. Not me, haven’t had the car out since lockdown ☹️
  2. 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?
  3. Ah, for me it is repeat the process to get race, maybe it's not possible on later models but that would seem odd.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. Cost cutting. It started towards the end of the V6 S before the 350 was introduced.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I'll see if I can make it also - think I've only made 1 so far - lol
  12. Not superstitious but I do salute magpies 🤔
  13. 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.
  14. I will be going. I hear bilster berg are asking too much this year so that might not be one the cards ☹️
  15. Thanks for some insider knowledge. Do you track the car often? If so, has it been a problem??
  16. 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
  17. Don’t joke, I am considering storing my exige for a year whilst I play with an Elise cup!
  18. 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.
  19. 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 ?
  20. I just hope I remember correctly and he fitted some in the end.
  21. I've seen an Exige V6 lifted off the ground just using 2 jacks (plus 1 person counter-balancing the engine - wheel swap) so I'd think the solution with the rears on the blocks would be ok. I'd be worried at how well the rear bar used to lift the rears balances as it doesn't look very wide - but if it's in the correct places (I have no idea about the rear points) it should be ok. Also, I think the wooden blocks are no necessary if you buy yourself a low-profile jack. PS: I'm no expert! I jack my car a side at a time.
  22. I owned an Exige Sprint (240PP) for 5 years before getting the V6. Great car but was feeling a little worn, don’t feel I could replace my v6 with one. I’m also wondering how many more drivers cars are coming out of lotus and is securing the last Elise cup a worthy trophy
