  1. @Dave - Is this is a reference to a 430 map? If so, please tell me more!!!
  2. @Kimbers don't agree with you, the Brexit Party => split vote => PM Jez. As per Peterborough. There's no way they get a majority, they have no other policies. I suppose the one good thing about PM Boris is that Farage dies in a ditch politically, he can go back to the Brussels trough
  3. True. I voted leave, and I'd do it again because I don't believe in the United States of Europe or the EU Army, or that Donald Tusk, Nige and the rest of the EU grey men should have unrestricted access to an unlimited trough of gravy. However....... (a) I don't think it's going to happen now and (b) I'm not entirely sure I actually want it to. There are at least two great things that being in the EU protects us from: (a) a flood of cheap, chlorine washed and/or pumped full of antibiotics, meat together with a raft of GM food that we can guarantee will be foisted on us under any US trade deal, which EU standards do not allow; and more importantly (b) Prime Minister Jezza nationalising the fuck out of everything under the sun, due to the EU's rules on State Aid. Without the EU framework, Jezza has the unrestricted ability to create his communist utopia of Venezuela-sur-la-manche. The Labour Communist Party are a bigger threat to the safety, security and prosperity of this country than Brexit. I firmly believe that. If the choice is to remain in the EU, or suffer the champagne socialist and protest vote leaving us with PM Jez and the consequential punitive income and property taxes, flights of capital and general communist politics of envy, I choose the EU every single time. Given the shambolic state of the Conservative party, and the likely (highly polarising) outcome of Boris as Mother T's successor, I can't help feeling that PM Jez is a real risk. If for the next election (which could be in a matter of weeks folks!) we have a choice of PM Boris or PM Jezza, lord only knows where we'll end up. Perhaps begging the EU to save us from the red terror... At least China owns a lot of the UK's debt, and under a communist PM would no doubt waive whatever he asks them to. I remain(!) hopeful that the Conservative Party will prevent this disaster from happening. I am not a member but personally I like Gove. He gets things done. God forbid we end up with PM Boris being prevented by parliament from a hard Brexit/no confidence vote => general election => ............ If someone on the remain side had campaigned on what the EU actually does for us, rather than just saying "vote for the status quo", I'm not sure we'd be in this mess.
  4. #doggate We have a dog. She's always walked on the lead because she doesn't like other dogs in her face. So don't get me started on uncontrolled dogs who come up off lead and she then snaps at 'oh they're only being friendly' "fuck off, you might think yours is but mine doesn't like it, why are you putting my dog at risk"
  5. Just because it was a nice day really. Although it might end up being a very expensive afternoon for @Gm77 and @andyj007 ...
  6. Lost a little something in changing it to a GIF but 10MB JPEG can't be uploaded!
  7. Totally don't agree. The yellow looks flat as a pancake. I'd take the black . Well, actually I'd wait for a blue one, but that's just me...
  8. Ah, is that where you were off to when we passed each other?! I think, if you find a car uncomfortable on a test drive, it's not a good idea to splash out the hard earned on it, especially if it's brand new and all the depreciation that means. Don't think any of the V6 exige seats actually have probax inserts any more, although I found mine perfectly comfortable. That car's bloody lovely btw (my son's sat in it), although I would say that as it's basically a copy of the colour scheme on my 400!
  9. @Hangar 111 can do it in the UK, though your estimate is pretty spot one. I think there may be a FFM TLF discount... Personally, and notwithstanding the fact that H111 have looked after all my lotus', I'd still put a 2bular exhaust and manifold on (sorry Dave)
  10. Personally, I don't like the seats in the 410 sport - they are mounted too upright. I wouldn't do anything to the mapping while it's in warranty but YMMV. I don't know if anyone other than Komotec offer anything and I believe the Lotus ECU hasn't been cracked properly, but I guess you can get it custom mapped, new ECU etc if you spend enough money. Tax will depend on the year, remember that from March 17 it goes off list price rather than emissions. My 16 plate 400 is not in the top bracket emissions wise so it's c£300 per year to tax (every little helped when man mathing the change from a V6 exige, which was in the top bracket!). I recall from previous discussions on other models that Lotus quite often include all the wiring, and sometimes even speakers, where there isn't a radio fitted. You'd have to speak to B&C or go and look at the car to check. If you are keener on a 410, I strongly advise doing that anyway because of the seats.
  11. I have an annoying rattle from somewhere up front, and some squeaking ARB bushes, but otherwise the thing has been awesome. Hoping these points get sorted next month under warranty. And even a 400 is bloody good on track, until you get black flagged for noise... Just to say, from personal experience, the 2bular lightweight interim loudness track exhaust is still too loud for Snetterton which has a 92 DB limit on driveby - even with the cans (although the ones I have look to be earlier than the version he now offers). I need to give him a ring to see if there's anything that can be done further in this regard, but if you are planning to track the car reasonably frequently I would suggest you go for the quietest option he has at the outset.
  12. I've downloaded @CocoPops settings from the Alpine ap. Hopefully that will clear it up as I bought the car from him!
  13. I've done this and had the same result. But mine has a sub-woofer fitted, according to the certificate of conformity and everything. So I guess its there - my ear isn't good enough to tell
