  1. “Just in time” stock delivery obvs it has been shocking, and no “sorry about this” letter. Just a soft top in a packing box.
  2. After having the same (exact copy and paste) reply as @stevensr34 I have sent the following reply: --------- So can Lotus sign over the rights to AIM on the MXLotus? It seems that AIM can and will develop for it, but not whilst their hands are tied by Lotus. It’s incredibly disappointing that Lotus are no longer interested in the Elise/Exige now the Emira/Electre are on the roadmap. It’s things like this, that even after 3 brand new Lotus’ in my ownership, that I’m considering cancelling my Emira deposit. Yes, I’m only one small deposit in a sea of many, but I do feel abandoned in Cup ownership after less than 8 months! If we can work with AIM directly, maybe even paying a ’small update fee’ then that’s something many FE owners would consider. I welcome your thoughts, Regards, Lee.
  3. That's bullshit and he knows it! I get the "not priority" that is the the main point. They've sold the cars and couldn't care less about the Elise/Exige any more. 1. We know that, that's fine. 2. New software to be written - AiM have said they can do this, but someone needs to pay. 3. Type Approval - Would not need to be redone for "aftermarket" update. How else do other car companies enable/disable features OTA. 4. Not in Lotus priorities, that's clear to see. It can be done, just Lotus can't be arsed to support customers. We know the GPS works if you get a versionA gps unit (now out of production) but the versionB needs software update to work... Overall, very disappointed with Lotus' attitude. I'd rather they told AIM that AIM have permission to do whatever they want to the unit. That would then allow us to pay AIM to develop the firmware. I'd happily pay a small fee to enable the GPS/Reverse Camera, not to mention the additional features that can be coded in. Interestingly, I've just had the same copy/pasted email as above.
  4. I emailed Matt Windle too. I got a reply!!! 😛 ”Sorry, I’m out of the office on a business trip to Australia…”
  5. I have this: ease of use and wiring. The receiver is already in place, connected to the dash. Which is why I want the software update to enable. Then I’ll connect the rear end.
  6. I sent the following, to [email protected] on Monday. No reply yet. Good Morning, I wonder if you can help. I own an Elise Cup 250 FE with the AIM dash and I’m disappointed that I cannot use a gps unit or reverse camera. AIM say the MXLotus needs software update but it is not their device it is a Lotus device. Lotus after sales say it’s an AIM device and there’s nothing they can do. So, as a customer of Lotus (3rd new Lotus) and have an Emira on order, I am disappointed that us Final Edition owners have been left out in the cold with an unsupported product. Please advise. Regards,
  7. Perfect!! grrrr now I really want AIM/Lotus to sort their shit out and support it.
  8. That's exactly where I intend to mount mine.... IF/When AIM sort the MXLotus to work with the camera. Can you share what the view looks like from there?
  9. I’ve fitted the wireless camera module to the rear of the dash. I’m ready then for if/when they activate it. I’ve also dropped the Aftersales director an email at Lotus. We need to convince them that they owe it to us to develop the features we bought the cars for!
  10. Mine got used properly today!
  11. Diffuser was fine, still not fitted, but that's my issue not his The front panel was replaced by Jason, without issue. I paid postage, but kept old panel as well as new one. Need to sell the 'wonky weave' panel
  12. The usual suspects for Lotus insurance with trackday cover: Henderson Taylor ClassicLine REIS Competition Car Insurance A-Plan (Thatcham Branch) Adrian Flux I've used CCI, REIS and now ClassicLine.
  13. I had a 500mile round trip with the EliseFE and I love the dash, I really do... BUT... I wish it wasn't hamstrung. I was on track at Anglesey and would have loved the GPS module to work, but can only order verB now Would also love the reverse camera to work too Really hoping AIM see to it that these functions will once again work.
