  1. Far less glamourous, but I spotted a 'camouflaged' Emira out and about near Wellingborough of all places yesterday. In inverted commmas as the camouflage was emblazoned with large Emira logos not disimmilar to other manufacturer's development vehicles after a reveal. No question it was a V6 version as it booted it down a dual carriageway.
  2. A number of people run 285mm width tyres with no additional parts (i.e. no plastic wheel arch spats) without issue. I think the introduction of the spats was more to avoid any type-approval type issues with incremental increase in wheel width (up to 10") and the minor increase in exposed tyre than anything else.
  3. Although possible without, your life would be much easier taking the seat out if you remove the roof first, so by default it'll be out for A-Frame removal.
  4. Cant' say for sure, but you may be lucky enough to get away with just removing the the seats (for the A-frame) I'm very happy I asked for mine to be painted body colour in-build at the factory, the body coloured A-frame was a nice feature on the S2 Cups, so I was disappointed when they went black in the V6 Cup. Personally I wouldn't go further than the A-frame. The roll hoop would definitely be a more involved removal job, and for little benefit, in my view. Photo for illustration:
  5. Sounds an absolute blinder, Nathan, especially with it remaining useable around town. Looking forward to seeing this in person one day, I still can't get my head round what these CC TVS1900 installs feel like.
  6. Love this car. I'll be eagerly awaiting your feedback on the TVS/ SCS work.
  7. I think a bit of contrast works well (as in the clear anodised aluminium), but for the cupholder black is appropriately discreet for me, as it's not something I'd usually look to highlight.
  8. Correct, same on the road car V6 Cup. Single Mocal unit up on the firewall on the left-hand side
  9. Assuming the OP has their own reasons (medical for example), if it means they can get more enjoyment and use out of their car then can only be a good thing.
  10. It all helps I'm sure, but personally I don't think as a % difference you'll notice any performance change. If it's your preference in terms of aesthetics then little harm in giving it a go, though it is worth noting Cup 2 Connect doesn't come in the size you mention. There is a reason I've stuck to 265/35/18 rubber on the back of mine despite moving to 10" wheels, as my visual preference is the opposite of yours (love a chunky sidewall), and thankfully don't find it short on performance.
  11. I've had this in my Exige Cup, just headrest pad. New velcro tape and she's good to go.
  12. Hi Tony, For the sake of an evening session I'd just utilise it as a send-off for the existing rears. Aim for 30psi hot.
  13. I think Dave is suggesting the OE Lotus one is the cheap and poor performing option of the two, unless I've misunderstood.
  14. Sorry, I mean on my car the light comes on at displayed one quarter tank and I believe this is level is accurate. i.e the AiM light comes on very early.
