  1. Hi, An approved service centre has told me that Lotus has recently issued a service bulletin recommending that the auxiliary drive belt, which I think is the supercharger belt ?, should be changed every 4 years / 36k miles. In my service book (2014 exige v6S) it doesn't give a replacement time scale for the Exige ( it does for the supercharged Elise of 2 years). Any one heard anything about this ? Thanks. 

  2. Brill choice, grey plus red leather is great combo, the roadster is a much underrated car imho, had mine 3 years now after 3 different elise versions, black with red interior set off by the silver wheels which I think look great, an  occasion  every time I take it out. You'll love it.

  3. Interesting and very large price variations quoted so far for Corsa rear tyres (LS); egs, Lotus Silverstone £225+fitting+VAT per tyre, Central & JCT both quoted as per the Lotus list price £643 per tyre inc VAT & fitting!  Camskill £187 per tyre delivered inc VAT, Blackcircles £216 per tyre inc VAT & fitting.

    Not sure what is happening with the high Lotus list price quoted, thought it must be for Trofeos or something exotic but they said not.

    You chaps had similar experience ?

  4. Hi,

    I need some new rear tyres for the Exige and will probably get them via someone like blackcircles since the Lotus main dealer prices are very high.

    Can anyone recommend a tyre fitting company in the Derby / Burton / Nottingham area that is good with fitting tyres to Lotus Elise / Exige ?  I've used Inner Ring (now Mr Tyres) in Derby several years ago with good results.
