  1. Same problem here in 2015 when my car was just 1 week old. the lock plate had to be adjusted.
  2. like GFwilliams I've also done more than 60.000 km and use it daily. I had some minor problems in the beginnig (locks, fuel cap, interior light and so on) so I recommend to buy a Lotus with some miles because all minor issues are usually fixed under warranty ;) Like said the clutch IS the weak link of Exige S/350/360. Mine was replaced at around 50.000 km, with the stronger Exige/Evora 380/410/430 clutch. Overall costs are around 2.500 to 3.500 euros, depending on the working hours of the garage. The huge Toyota V6 should last forever....
  3. For a non UK citizen like me it sounds extremly strange and some kind of funny that your really have unarmed police officers. I first thought this is a joke. So who wants to do this job nowadays with all the violance and terror if you can't defend youself and other people ? So what the hell do your officers do if the criminal is armed and trying to kill him or others ? Talking ? praying ? giving flowers? phone a "real" policeman? In my country you have to learn 3 years becoming a police officer and learn to handle the firearm, train regulary to keep your firearm and certainly
  4. The color is like always a question of personal taste. But black lights on a black rear is something that reminds me of bad 90s car tuning ๐Ÿ˜… i like to see these beautiful lights even on daylight.
  5. I have Option 3 of the GRP lights. The reflector is this red circle behind the signal light. Look nice and gives the light a 3D-look. ยด http://
  6. The car on this Eltech advertising is my car. This are the GRP GT lights, red, EU spec (yellow signal and white reversing lights) with reflector. None of these US aftermarket lights are legal anywherr in Europe. Also not in UK. Maybe after Brexit ๐Ÿ˜ The reflector looks nice but isn't very good because mostly hidden behind the signal light. So I've added additional reflectors at bottom. Beside that the quality is very good and looks OEM, so probably you won't have trouble with it.
  7. okay, i bought all missing screws and nuts and also had to modify the mount a bit and rasp 1 mm on one side to not scratch the paint. I like the black mounts and a 3 cm wider wing is tolerable. So after all I'm happy because the quality of carbon, clearcoate and the mounts is great, it's rock solid and straight and fitting is perfect.Missing stickers will be send. I guess I'm a member of the club now ๐Ÿ˜— http://
  8. Guess what... I measured the length of my wing today ๐Ÿ˜’ they don't even have a measure tape. It's 3 cm longer than ordered: 143cm. I must live with that, but how can all this this happen with such a simple order?
  9. yes, Facebook messenger, bot I only get "shop is closed". As I don't want to wait weeks for the missing or wrong parts I measured, bought and ordered all missing nuts and screws. So hopefully I can fix the wing next week like it is. And I asked Matteo to send me the missing stickers and right colored mountings.
  10. so, I got my Eltech "plug and play" wing today after 10 weeks of waiting and drive a Roadster now ๐Ÿ˜ก 1. the stickers for the endings are missing 2. the mountings have the wrong color (all black) 3. Four nuts to use the the original Lotus screws are missing, and no new no screws in the package 4. no paint protection for the new mountings to not scratch the car paint. 5. screws to install the mounting to the wing came, but no nuts for the screws. .... I could buy all things today, and wanted to mount it anyway, but 6. Eltech only send me one of the two needed v
  11. Thank you Matteo, your money is on it's way. Please check FB Messenger and tell me if everything is okay.
  12. I just paid the balance so hopefully it will find it's way from Milano to me now. I thought I could pay the balance when the wing is finally here. And i have to mention that an English conversion between Germans and Italians can be misleading ๐Ÿ˜™ One of the reasons for the long waiting is that i've ordered the wing with the new curved endings like the 380cup wing. But to look more like the cup wing Eltech mounted the endings backwards for me and made some special stickers for the endings.
  13. I'm now wainting since more than 9 weeks for my eltec wing. I made a deposite of about half the price on May 06. First Eltech told me the wing is ready now and sent on Friday, 06. of July. That wasn't true, because I asked for a tracking number and Eltec send me a photo of a DHL sticker with a tracking number from 09. of July. Since then, one week now, the DHL tracking website says the package is still in Milano/Italy. I phoned DHL today and they say they don't "physically" have the package, it isn't sent. Eltech promissed me every day sending it and now they want the rest of
  14. Interestingly you would have the same burnt in black color here if you simply drive the car for some weeks
