  1. Yeah red looks ok ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ˜
  2. Thatโ€™s odd. Did you keep the a/c on since last year, and just adjusted the temp dial to manage? I always did as I understood that keeping it always on ensures its always lubricated. Not using the compressor for months on end while the car is used is not good. have you tried the โ€œwindows resetโ€ method (on off ignition)? hopefully that or a fuse sorts it.
  3. Living in Hungary I self maintained my Evora for 9 years, the first 2 I used to drive to the factory to watch and learn from Lotus Motorsport. For an Evora you really need a lift, which I am grateful to have use of at a friends house. The lift did break one with the Evora up, which was a bit of a horror lol the 340R is much easier as no lift required. I dont mind maintaining as I / Hypo and I do a much better job than mist garages, but I do it out of necessity really. In the Uk I would more likely send it to HPE/Seriously Lotus/BOT. The older I get the harder it gets to motivate myself to build / maintain. Driving is my hobby. Having a great mate who really enjoys working on the cars is a godsend. Wrenching together is much more enjoyable. Very grateful for that.
  4. Are any of these left? or another source The righ rear broked where it has been welded in the past. I am getting it rewelded and strengthened, but want to know if alternatives are available. Thanks
  5. Know how that feels! well done! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Ž wish I was in the UK would love to have such events to attend.
  6. (Hopefully) Inspiring a new generation of Lotus fan ๐Ÿ˜Š
  7. Excited a car spotter โ˜บ๏ธ
  8. I am guessing this must belong or be known by some in here. i see lots of pnm parts on it. Can amyone tell me about it or Eclats as an ownership proposition? And what is the range of price on good Eclats - this must surely be top end? Lots of love been given to it ๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ well I may have driven the Evora through a flood and realised after that it was not a good idea for someone with clean and proper OCD!!!
  10. Ooh cap head instead of head bolts. 0.3% aero improvement but mechanics are hating you. actually droping the floor to give the cooling slot kills the aero anyway. but its good cololing opp unless you drive through a flood at some point lol
  11. Yes that fan and the adaptor plate. Lotus Motorsport installed it for me. If one was to do it now I would get RRR to install. Gregor knows the Evora electrics / ecu better than most as he worked on it at Lotus. A simple on off and timer on shut down would work just the same as mine did via the ecu. The ecu stays active for 3mins or a bit more after the alarm comes on and mine was set up to run on shut down with the switch on for that period, in addition to me running the fan when stationary or creeping in heavy summer traffic. I also had completely ceramic coated tubular system to reduce the engine bay heat. It all worked very well imo. the only thing I woukd do is use CamCoating instead of Zircotec. Z marks and chips off. Camcoating (Ive put on the 340R system) does the same job and doesnt mark or chip off. And they are cheaper than Z so win win.
  12. Airflow around the enginebay keeps all the components healthier. Particularly the wiring and fuel system. As summer temps increase or the Evora stays stationary the heat bakes everything in a way the set up was not designed for - front rad and fan blowing onto the engine. Hence the middle east market cars getting the ecu controlled fan in the right hand vent. And in the later cars the vented lid instead of glass. Ideal in my mind would be clear polycarb with louvres. I am absolutely certain my cars / now Hamzaโ€™s engine ancilaries are in better condition because of the fan. At this price is a no brainer. Lovely and highly beneficial part.
