  1. I’ve just checked back though the Service Notes for the Evora (same DPM system) and Arun is correct. The EDL is a DPM feature so when the DPM is off, so is the EDL.
  2. FYI, the windows won’t throw up the spanner symbol. That particular spanner must have been pointing to another issue. Unfortunately, only Lotus Techcentre can interrogate the spanner codes (but they are always minor).
  3. If you've already got some Sonos stuff, the Sonos Playbar (with additional Play 1s and the sub) can be worth it. However, I wouldn't buy them all at once - the total price would be eye watering! Otherwise, I think that Yamaha are generally regarded as the best soundbar manufacturer. I can dig out some recommended model numbers, if you'd like.
  4. Nice. If you haven’t found it yet, you might want to go through this thread (from the beginning): It might give you an idea or two for your new car.
  5. Welcome to TLF. Look forward to hearing about what you’ve ordered.
  6. This. (Which is also why all of the OEM Lotus cars have the (generally derided) cats in the headers).
  7. Personally, I would be looking for a Ginetta specialist who is based in, or near, Hampshire. You could try asking here: https://www.ginetta.org Otherwise, this operation seem to be based in Hampshire and have previous Ginetta experience: http://mattblythmotorsport.co.uk/index.html (They might be too 'modern' for your requirements though). This lot might be able to help as well (and aren't very far away in West Sussex): https://svgmotorsport.com Good luck.
  8. Absolutely. Don’t forget that those pressures are for the OEM Pirellis. Michelins seem to work better with lower pressures, regardless of the size. (I use 1.8 & 2.0bar for 19/20s which, annoyingly, is below the TPMS threshold. Which is why I got it switched off!)
  9. I would so love to be able to commit to this right now. But, alas...
  10. I suspect that they will be waaaay ahead of you with that thought.
  11. The pressures in the Owner’s Manual are always cold pressures. “Pressure (cold) - normal driving conditions - front 2.4 bar (35 psi) - rear 2.6 bar (38 psi) - high loads and/or speed - front 2.8 bar (40.5 psi) - rear 3.0 bar (43.5 psi)”
  12. Yes. If you dig up @JAWS's thread, you will see his NA with 410 wheels on it.
  13. Welcome to TLF. The IPS cars have a transmission oil cooler (which will have been upgraded in an MY14 car. It might be even beefier for a ME region car): Transmission fluid cooling: Both supercharged and naturally aspirated IPS transmission vehicles is also rationalised with the fitment of a single larger transmission fluid oil cooler mounted ahead of LH front wheel arch. Therefore, you should be okay regarding IPS temperatures. Some IPS track users do talk about having to change their driving style to anticipate gear change times though.
  14. Hello Georg, Please list the intake on the free classifieds site, https://www.lotusforsale.com. Your listing over there will generate it's own thread over here: https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/forum/350-lotusforsalecom-latest-ads/
  15. Wow. Welcome to TLF. I bet that you & that car have got some stories to tell.
  16. Ah, when I saw the Windlesham address, I did wonder if it was the old BOC HQ. I'm glad that an amazing building has fallen into the right hands (after a few years of neglect): https://valleyend150.wordpress.com/2017/08/20/2648/ And, more recently (unfortunately):
  17. If you haven't got a Torygraph subscription, here it is from the 'horse's mouth' (AKA the PR dept): https://www.gordonmurraydesign.com/news-articles/gordon-murray-group-announces-new-global-headquarters-and-technology-campus.html
  18. https://www.howardsgroup.co.uk/used-cars/lotus-esprit-2-2-s2-2dr-2-door-coupe-black/dlh393t
  19. Strangely, the Autel can’t read the SRS code, but it can clear the light. Try the procedure again but just select the ‘clear codes’ option (or equivalent). (Otherwise, I notice from your profile that you’re local to me. Give me a shout via PM and we can sort something out).
  20. Thanks, @Barrykearley. Hopefully this thread is now back on track. Otherwise, posts are going to start disappearing.
  21. If we're lucky, he should be making a start on his Esprit again soon...
