  1. Posted this last year @TpupNomad Here's my sprint V6, the blue is persian - it is more metallic and a bit deeper than Essex I think, it changes colour more depending on light/dirt
  2. My car is Essex blue and a mate has a 430 in the same colour. Metallic blue is different. Persian blue is utterly lovely but hasn't been a standard lotus colour for a while now. My S2 and S3 exiges were in a Persian blue sprint scheme.
  3. Big fan of the red leather interior in mine. It doesn't photo well but it's lovely in reality.
  4. It's not so bright/reflective in reality, and suits the car perfectly.
  5. I bought mine second hand... I reckon I'd get c90% of what I paid for it if I put it up for sale now. Which I won't because (a) I really don't think now is the time to be selling anything that could be construed as a luxury and (b) I can't think of anything to replace it that I can actually afford
  6. Nice car. Price seems pretty fair to me, and you never know, someone lurking on here might decide it's perfect for them! Car market seems very soft at the moment. I'm left wondering what my Hethel Ed 400 with about the same mileage is worth, if yours is only 60k...
  7. This has been an issue since the S2 Exige (at least!) - I remember having to get H111 to put a new set of pipes through the sill on mine.
  8. Probably cheaper to do that than modify your current one...
  9. Yours must have been built at a very similar time to mine. I had the clutch changed as it had become very noisy and Lotus confirmed it was failing. New drop links as well, otherwise was just a couple of niggles/adjustments. All sorted out by @Hangar 111, though it took a bit of time. Picked it up this morning in fact, it was like collecting a new car!
  10. Pass. The 2bular that @CocoPops fitted on mine is not quiet enough for Snetterton - blows 96db on the drive by! That was without the additional cans fitted mind, but I can't think that they will be enough alone to lose 4db on the drive by. I'm not really sure what to do, part of the appeal of the 400 is how good it sounds and I don't really want to lose that.
  11. You should try the Mark 7 Fiesta ST for ride quality. Now that's an experience to remember.... I love mine even so (on my second now!) I couldn't live with the seats in the Sport 410. All the carbon fibre is lovely however and the cost to change at the moment is fairly minimal in the grand scheme of things, but for me the 400 does everything I want of it and I'm very happy with mine - especially once the few niggles are ironed out by Dave @Hangar 111 !
  12. I had a new battery on my 400 earlier in the year - 2 and a bit years old, and kept on a trickle charger when not driven daily
  13. Does anyone know the paint code (if there is one) for the silver forged wheels on the 400 (Hethel Edition in my case)? I've got a wheel in for a refurb at the moment... Cheers Will
