  1. Stunning - you must be like a dog with two dicks waiting for delivery Stephen...
  2. Ha.......thank god! I’m usually one for keeping things standard but I have to say I’m contemplating a set of afterburners - I think they are jaw droppingly good..... Where are they from George?
  3. You lot have been diddled - I was wondering why the Superchargers were unpainted on some 380’s, now I know (should have guessed)..
  4. Hmmm. Was the carbon one standard when you ordered it, I wonder...
  5. I've been admiring your photos and upgrade thread for a while George - but the yellow mats look gash! I do hope you were kidding...... Everything else looks the business. What a car you're turning this into.....
  6. Absolutely stunning, I'm sure you can't wait for the big day. Scott does indeed know his stuff - he has special Lotus blood running through his veins !
  7. Martin, great photos there - the V6 looks fantastic in red...
  8. Intriguing - did they tell you how to fit them? I presume they slide inside the runners, replacing existing parts?
  9. Sorry to hear about this, I would guess that it's pretty rare - that's what we're all hoping anyway... i think you need to check the engine bay on the Happy Meal model, could be some random bits of Big Mac in there... EDIT - Unboxing video here ?
  10. I fitted a better head unit that has a USB input on the front, but I have a USB thumb drive in there with my MP3s on it. The head unit does have a rear USB input (on a trailing lead) so if I could find a way through the dash top, I could potentially have that as the power for the windscreen mounted phone/Nav.
  11. Hi Gav, hope you're keeping well - I suspect the lovely GTE isn't seeing much tarmac at this time of year? That sounds like a good shout re the USB - I'll have a poke around and see what the options are..
  12. I have a V6 Roadster with the convenience pack, so it has the USB socket already fitted on the passenger side. Has anyone ever considered the possibility of installing a subtle USB socket on the top of the dashboard somewhere centrally? I sometimes need power up there for my phone when using it as a Sat Nav - and I hate having cables draping over the front of the dash. If I could simply buy a short cable and plug it in up there it would be great.... i guess it's doable but would mean making a hole in the dash - which I wouldn't be very keen to do at all.....has anyone found anot
  13. I think the 430 looks great, and is clearly a big step forward being chargecooled. I'd love one - but realistically it'll probably never happen. I'm struggling to see how Lotus will sell loads of these though - I hope they do, but if I had £110k to spend on this type of car I'd be casting my net pretty wide, so the Lotus would have to be very special indeed. Completely agree with the comments about even considering upgrading to a 430 (or not) after doing just 1000 miles and having lost £3k a month in depreciation on a 380 - that sounds like complete madness to me - it's £20 a mile b
  14. I know this might sound ridiculous, but given that the warranty "fix" doesn't seem to change anything, what about cutting a tennis ball in half (or perhaps thinner than that) and wedging it under the the seat? The seat will be harder to slide back and forth, though not impossible I suspect, and it might just be enough to stop the wobble...... No harm in trying...
  15. Couple of pics of mine with the Venom Red interior, some like it, some others aren't so keen, personally I think it looks fantastic with the Carbon grey paint.
  16. Thread revival time...! I recently bought a relay for the indicators, as per the advice on this thread, and it is now fitted - took less than 2 minutes thanks to the pictures and guidance on here. It cost £4 .... Now, if only someone could find out whether it's possible to fit brighter illumination (LED bulbs maybe) to the early V6 heater/AC and heated seats buttons, particularly to show when they are switched ON, that would be marvellous......
  17. Great pic - I'd love to see more photos of it with the Visium hardtop...
  18. Doesn't look too shabby on a plain old Roadster either....Carbon Grey is very under-rated, I think so many people go for the brighter colours. The 430 does have the edge, I admit It looks a tad overexposed to me
  19. Haven't had a chance to fit them yet, sadly...
  20. That would be great Bibs, thank you kindly - let me know what info you may need or if there is anything I need to do?
  21. Great photo Olivier - nice to know that the Roadster looks at home with the Ferrari...
  22. Congrats, looks lovely - one day I'll be bold enough to go for the orange. Stunning. I also bought a V6 from Silverstone recently - very happy with it thus far Bibs - what's all this about a membership upgrade flyer......I didn't get one either!
