    Hi Mate

    What a awesome Exige fella.

    Do you have a template or dimensions for fitting the canards ?? As i have some on order from Lotus.

    Thanks Paul

    Hi Paul,

    I’ve not picked up the canards yet but I’m sure Jct said that they were going to get a template or Some form of technical drawing to me. I’m at Cadwell Tomo but will give them a buzz later in the week 👍

    Are the rear diffuser barge boards carbon and I assume the long side ones are ?

    Also thought about adding the 380Cup rear wing extended winglets ?

    Hi Colin,


    the rear boards don’t come in carbon unfortunately so I had them paint them gloss black to match the other features on my car.

    not sure about the 380 cup rear wing extended winglets, what are these?

  2. Jct 600 have my 2017 380 sport in Kawasaki green coming up soon which I px,d in against my 430 cup.

    Proceed with caution. That car has a habit of encouraging its owners to upgrade to a 430 cup after owning it! 
    2 of us on here have fallen victim to its curse ! 😉

    These are off my 430 Cup nut can’t remember which were original on car 


    Ah. So ferrodo.

    What did you replace them with Colin? 

    although the brakes are good on the 430 I think the mintex F4R race pads I had put on the 380 are better on track. 
    I suppose is to be expected with a track focused pad. 
    I may change them sooner than later ie rather than wait until worn out as I want to benefit fully from the as new discs. 

    be interesting to hear what others have chosen To replace on the 430 when using on track. ?

    Realised it’s been ages since I updated this thread!

    so after selling my 350 and moving to a 430 I finally managed to get it on track. Now the 350 is an amazingly capable car right out of the box but the 430 just blew my mind. I had a geo done by Jez at back on track in Guildford and so the car was running more front camber and a lower ride height than factory but the way this thing carries speed, brakes and accelerates is just mind altering. I know snetterton from last year but I had to change all my braking and turn in points as this was just so much sharper. Had a fun battle with a gt3 rs and was shocked that it only pulled very marginally ahead down the straight when I changed gear. 

    I have the lotus track exhaust which was great in terms of noise but they weren’t actually policing noise that day! 








    Hi Alastair, great pics pal.

    how do you find the standard brake pads on track? 

    And Does anybody know what the Oem pads are on the Cup 430?

  5. Hi Colin  I’ve done a couple of track days in the 430 but they’ve not carried out static noise test due to covid I assume.  What were you registering at static with standard exhaust?

    Also The Marshall's said they were still doing drive by testing but I’ve had no issues with the 2 days I’ve done so far. Have you had any issues with drive by?

  6. I had to fight for the rear boards and carbon side boards  to be fitted by the factory after being told numerous times By Oakmere that the factory can’t fit these for homologation reasons ????

    i was adamant I wanted them and eventually they did it.

    after coming from a 380 that has these as standard  there was no way I was spending the best part of £40k more to then look at the car and Feel like I’d lost some bits which make the car look so much better imo  

    I was also told I couldn’t have black gloss wheels?”????

    The above options are now available on the configerator and are appearing on cars out of the factory!!! work that one out!

  7. Looks absolutely stunning in yellow Steve  congrats on the purchase. I did Oulton park again on Friday and the car performed faultlessly.

    I’d recommend to get it on a track day to really see what is capable of. It’s something else   😉



  8. 😂 

    It’s just the rest of the house. Kitchen/ dining. etc 

    it’s been a labour of love renovating the house. I’ve done everything myself. The Cinema room was always in the planning but the “lotus lounge” was an afterthought and started with this, basically 2 kitchen base units and some cheap Floating shelving from ikea  :

    A few more cosmetic questions :)

    Did you think, while choosing your colours, about fully deleting these headlight eyeliners ?

    The car was actually delivered to the dealership without the headlight liners attached but in my opinion looks better with them and helps it to stand out over a standard 350

    Looks strange I agree, but somehow enforces the race feeling of the car.
    Would then perhaps need the exterior engine isolator / fire extinguisher switches to confirm the look :)
    But you went for the interior carpets, so I understand.
    Anyway, did you try to challenge the factory to mount the bulkhead with their A-frame fitted, for example properly cutting it / making proper holes ?
    Perhaps you thought about doing this by yourself (but finally went for another harness bar) ?

    no I didn’t even think about doing this as I already owned the removable bar and 2 x harness sets For both seats which the dealers said they’d swap over into the car from my 380.

    Show us once fitted ;)

    Finally, sounds like, in the video above, that you heel-toe downshift, is it comfortable enough with built-in pedals ?

    Thank you again 👍


    I think the lotus pedals are perfect. Never ever had a problem and feels perfectly natural and comfortable to heel and Toe  👍
