    Hi @BanditI know this is an older thread now but….. is the OEM switch just plug and play? I’m certainly no mechanic but if it’s just a case of plugging the new switch in to the existing wiring which is ready to take it and drilling a hole for the switch I think I could manage that (hopefully)

     Thanks in advance 😁




    I believe it depends how old your car is if it’ll work or not. My old one was a late 18 car and literally plugged it in and it worked.

    As others have said, it goes on the left hand side (in a mirror position to the button on the right that does trip reset, brightness etc) of the steering column, there should be a blanking bung there - once you remove the plastic cover around the steering column there should be a pair of wires with a green plug marked EX SW or similar. Connect the switch to this plug and it ‘should’ work.

  2. Just to bring this thread up to date, has anyone tried Michelin PS3/4s on an S2/3 Elise or S2 Exige?

    Im currently running AD08RSs that came with the car and find them awful compared to the previous Rs. Want to get them off asap.

    Choice seems to be 

    205/55/R16 PS4 front

    225/45/R17 PS4 rear 


    205/45/R16 PS3 fronts

    I’m aware of the possible rubbing issues on a 55 profile front (got Nitrons and lowered ride height)

    Avon ZZS is another option.

    Hey Paul,

    Link to #6 here:


    Also I saw a comment suggesting  #13 moving on again in a post I saw the FB Exige V6 group but haven't seen an ad.

    Thank you Arun👍🏻(Sorry, thought I’d already replied to this but it disappeared)

    Seen the white one and it’s not really my preferred colour plus I’d like a standard (ish) one.

    No13 is indeed for sale at Central Lotus for £50k, dealer won’t move on the price, it’s now on 6 owners plus it’s had some odd mods done.

    So I’m still on the lookout for one so if anyone is considering selling 🙂

    Been thinking of selling my pewter cup. 

    not really done anything serious about it put it on pistonheads at the start of the year and agreed a deal pretty much straight away with a guy on Spain but then lockdown got in the way and travel restrictions etc And also think he was having issues specific to registering the cup in Spain..

    probably Not a good time to advertise it at the moment though?

    Yeh, I remember that going fast. Jon has made an offer for it as did targo florio cars and both were ok for dealers to be fair, but I just want to try myself first when I finally pull my finger out.


    have to find what I want to replace it with first though and that’s where I struggle.



    @Messer I messaged you a couple of days ago about your car on Seloc.

    How much are you looking for money wise?

  5. So, to be clear, they’re exactly the same pads fitted to all other V6 Exiges even though the larger(?) standard J hook Alcon discs are on the car?

    This would make purchasing options easier (as in it simply becomes a choice between maker/compound) as I can’t find any specific 410 fitment mentioned anywhere. @Seriouslylotus any advice on this? 🙂

    Cheers for all the advice so far.

    As I just put on the other thread :)

    PF08 have a really good immediate bite. Downsides are more brake dust and a bit of squeaking (not enough to annoy me though).

    @GFWilliams thanks very much, I can’t see the other thread though, could you post a link? 👍🏻

    I did see that one but not being from a Lotus dealer I didn't look much further.  Great colour though :)


    It was supplied new by Bell and Colville, had one owner who did 800 miles in it and was sold to its second owner last year. It’s done 200 miles since then. Still under warranty from Lotus - pretty risk free if you ask me 🤷‍♂️
