  1. Car looked great! Quite a few of us in the area, will have to schedule a meet up sometime soon!
  2. πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹ saw you drive past
  3. Paul, Valter who lives down the road from you in our group has one πŸ˜‚
  4. Yup, it's been on my splitter for a year and a half now and works great πŸ‘πŸ»
  5. Extremely useful on the skid pan (in the wet). Out of the 5 cars in our group, 3 were 430 Cups (with oem tc dial) and we could feel the difference between 1% and 3%, or fully off for example. Normal and Sport modes would just cut power to try to get grip from the rear wheels. Race worked very well, as well as 1% slip.
  6. Day out at Thruxton skid pan last weekend with some other Exiges on here. Spent some time going through Sport, Race and the 6-way TC in the wet, which was very helpful. Added bonus of being able to watch the Tuscan GP in between our turns in the paddock πŸ™‚
  7. Thanks @Arun_D πŸ‘, I'll be in a similar boat as Matt... Will know travel plans by next month and plan accordingly!
  8. Thanks πŸ‘ I've got a place in the US so just sent a couple locally and picked it up last time I was there.
  9. Thanks, in this case literally no stone left unturned πŸ˜†
  10. So recently decided to get the car all cleaned up and detailed. Might be slightly pic heavy but some OCD-friendly pics πŸ™‚
  11. RRSSS

    New 430 cup

    Any Exclusive options in the interior? Interested to see some pics
  12. I really don't think it makes a noticeable difference. I've had my Cup 430 on the autobahn with standard factory settings and again with geo done (lowered, camber etc) and with the geo you can definitely feel the difference on "high speed" runs. There is enough downforce that you feel comfortable with the car being planted on the road at speeds above 150mph. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ‘ The Sliplo works great and is durable enough not to damage the carbon it's stuck on.
  13. Hi Mark, congrats on getting your car! Think they're spoken for let me double check
  14. Oh @BatMobile, metallic black is for Adam West.. Motorsport Black is for Christian Bale 😝
  15. The LF1 plaque is probably the best for open viewing compared to the rest.. I was stopped at some traffic lights once and a guy came up, put both his hands on the glass just to take a look inside (while I was in the car engine running etc) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ
  16. Congrats! Great car , the build quality on mine was top notch πŸ‘
  17. @Woots It's called cabin fever buddy 😝 Jokes aside, the oem piece looks and feels great.. very sturdy bit of rubber, shame they couldn't fix it onto the lip better. As @Edinburgh 111s mentioned, using 3M adhesion promoter prior to applying 3M tape works wonders πŸ‘
  18. Don't be silly, that said goodbye to me by entrance ramp 3 of the Eurotunnel at Folkestone πŸ˜‰ I've got these on under the splitter (sorry pics taken from my 'gram hence the "@"): Got a spare box if anyone wants it
  19. The Type 79 won't be the same as a "regular" Cup 430. Externally, it will come with carbon side skirts and rear canards, along with pin striping. The stripe along the top of the car will be different to a regular Cup 430. The interior will have a different seat stitching design as well as a wooden gear knob. The plaque on the passenger side will be different as well. My car was delivered with black wheels, then Bell & Colvill had them painted gold to match the gold bits from factory. Good luck!
  20. Congrats @FF! Motorsport or Metallic Black?
  21. Not really πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ At the time, the 430 came in black, red or silver I believe... dealer getting it done would have been more cost competitive
  22. Agreed, that's why I went down the same route when I ordered mine! πŸ‘
  23. Good luck and good job going through the Exclusive Programme! It's a great thing for Lotus to do, weird that they don't advertise it as much as they should... Looking forward to seeing what you've come up with πŸ‘
