  1. 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!)
  2. I would so love to be able to commit to this right now. But, alas...
  3. I suspect that they will be waaaay ahead of you with that thought.
  4. 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)”
  5. Yes. If you dig up @JAWS's thread, you will see his NA with 410 wheels on it.
  6. 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.
  7. 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/
  8. Wow. Welcome to TLF. I bet that you & that car have got some stories to tell.
  9. 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):
  10. 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

  12. 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).
  13. Thanks, @Barrykearley. Hopefully this thread is now back on track. Otherwise, posts are going to start disappearing.
  14. If we're lucky, he should be making a start on his Esprit again soon...
  15. Welcome to TLF. That’s a great start to your Lotus journey. Has your car got the cf buckets in it?

  17. Hello Slav. Welcome to TLF If you've not discovered it already, you might be interested in this YouTube series: @GTK is a fellow TLFer.
  18. There is considerable contradiction in those 2 statements! (By the way, aside from a few early cars with an installation issue, the Evora clutch is not a common issue. Which is why some of them make it to 125k+).
  19. I love that sort of man maths. Starts at mid-40s and now up to mid-70s. Result. Personally, I would definitely hold out for a GT430 and I reckon that £75k will be doable before too long (if not already).
