  1. No the bar just runs down to empty, albeit the segments go turn from white to red when the level is under 1/4 tank
  2. The do not say 'forged'. Depending on which model they came from, the rears may have a bonded spacer to effect a 3mm offset difference, for 285mm width tyre fitment, but they will fit.
  3. Hi Adam and welcome. The Cup is a fantastic choice. I highly suspect 006 was the press car, but I wouldn't let that put you off at all. It only seemed to do a handful of reviews and would have been well looked after at the factory. I came from a couple of V6S before I got my Cup in 2015, I was very surprised by the level of compliance in the standard Nitrons. I'd go so far as to say they're suited to a typical b-road drive more than the normal Bilsteins. The GT4 would arguably be even more suited to majority road usage but the Exige I'm sure is more special, to drive and own. Only yo
  4. Correct county, but not mine unfortunately (unless I need to check the garage!). Most likely Fire Red in that case.
  5. Thanks @Paul_D, that was the next step of feedback I wasn't able to give, which is interesting in itself as there's no LED in the OEM switch! I'm not 100% sure on whether the flap needs to be activated in TechCentre on a V6S after fitting the switch, but worth a try for the sake of a normal switch.
  6. To an extent, but any drilled disc used with any regularity on track will still crack around the holes. The longterm solution is to switch to grooved. You will still see surface crazing on the disc from heat, but much better to remove the stress raisers altogether.
  7. @Gashead1105 It had the standard Nitrons from the photos from under the access cover, but yes, a lot of the accent stuff wasn't to my taste. Also what made me chuckle was the irony of 'that' quote from Colin Chapman embroidered on sides sills made heavier from the retrim. Anywhoo, a decent buy for someone.
  8. @550superfast Looks like the Black Edition on Collecting Cars went for £40k. I spotted it the other day but was only prompted to look again after your post.
  9. I don't believe there are any hardware differences.
  10. I guess the 'why bother?' bit comes down to the fact if you think the rubber gates have deteriorated or not (or are likely to in the near future), therefore compromising the sump's anti-surge performance. Anyhow, I've learnt something this week which may influence some servicing decisions for me in the future, cheers @MrD
  11. Interesting, I don't know of anyone that has had the Cup 'trapdoor' sump gates renewed. I don't think B&C or H111 did this as part of routine servicing on my Cup.
  12. Congrats @Neal H. I'm really looking to experiencing the latest Speedy, as I said previously in this thread, the last one was right up there as potential 2nd bike for me, especislly after seeing them being bolted together at the Hinckley plant. A real hooligan machine that's also comfy and feature-laden. Roll on April!
  13. Not with a normal code reader, especially if you have no warning lights. Lotus Techcentre can interrogate the ECU and give a report on engine speed history but I believe if there was an issue you'd know about it by now.
