    Yes my old car...

    Yes indeed... I have no issue with “other” GTE’s it’s the fact that Lotus disposed of the remainder of the parts which some of us had been assured would be kept available to repair our cars should they need it.. yes maybe naive to believe Lotus would do as they said but nevertheless a commitment was made. Personally I’m appalled at the way Lotus treats its loyal customers!

    It’s disgraceful shame on Lotus & one of the reasons I sold my GTE.. you buy a car in good faith & take it at face value when they tell you they are keeping all the other cars in bits to support the 20 customers that have bought them. Then they sell the lot so no spares are realistically available as the premium that is being applied to them now makes them unrealistic!

    Those look just like the ones I have, but for some reason I'd thought mine were recliners maybe not I'll have to check tonight....

    GTE #20 now resides at JCT Lotus Leeds.... sad to see it go but I just wasn't using it
  11. For the record..., I love the car but just simply never drive it. Didn't buy it with the intention of not driving it, just find that with 3 road trips each year plus my race/rally commitments I simply don't get enough chance to drive it, it's not been an easy decision to sell, every time I see the car I change my mind but it frustrates me that it's just not getting used..... Still think that it's a better car than anything else Lotus has to offer including the new 430 obviously just my opinion!
  12. Not in my opinion! No doubt you have heard all the tales of massive understeer... well it doesn't have to be that way.
  13. Having been a little unhappy with my 3ways when first fitted (Nitron had just had the info provided to them by Lotus I believe) Dave at Seriously Lotus has spent considerable time/effort, having a multitude of changes made to them. I've driven literally thousands of miles both road & track to get the setup right (I'm really picky) Finally I have to say they are incredible far better than stock on road & much better balance on track. As an alternative for your application with less road miles than me, I'd up the spring rates to the ones on Dave's car, same balance as mine but stiffer all round giving better performance on track but still compliant enough for traveling to track & back. Not saying I'd be happy driving it to the Alps & back though, if that's your thing you'd need the same springs as me....
  14. No I may be coming around on that one.... Then again, before I wasn't sure now I'm just undecided
  15. It looks gggggggreat.... when you see it you'll have to have one!
  16. I've removed the airbag wheel on mine, it's nothing of a job.. I'm sure a dealer would be able to go into your cars ECU & turn off the airbag feature (I'm assuming that's what they do on the cup cars as the removable wheel is a dealer fit) However not having that facility we simply pushed a small resistor into the holes in the plug that were left vacant when the airbag plug came out, seems to do the trick without any issues. To date my V6 hasn't required an MOT but previously did the same to my 09 plate Elise & never had any issues at MOT time (though I may just have been lucky?) NB. Having removed the airbag wheel the replacement boss, horn ring, wheel & removable gubbins can all be obtained from Dave @Seriouslylotus

    Wasn't that the car that was Gold with a red interior... In any case the one pictured above is Gav's car as 21gg mentioned above!

    middle of April should see us part way (suspension, fuel tank, s/wheel, harness, toe eye) ready for Exiges track day at Anglesey. Aero bits should (fingers crossed) be just after Anglesey & before Hethel at the end of April. Then....... oil cooler, brakes, power upgrade
