  1. more elegant and also cheap method, cut the hose anywhere and use a aquaristic valve: https://www.amazon.de/sourcingmap®-Edelstahl-Aquarium-Kontrolle-Fließen/dp/B01GW5M2CA
  2. I know what you want but please read my post again. Both this switch and the Race mode are part of optional Race Pack and can not be unlocked. Your switch will be without function.
  3. On Exige S (V6) the valve button and Race driving-mode was part of the optional "Race Pack" (something around 1.500 Euros) which is hard coded to the ECU. My dealer says this can't be unlocked, only from Hethel itself. Ironicly all Exige S have the full Race-Pack functionaly and complete wiring. A very rude method for generating extra money So a button will not lead to sucess. This seems to be different on newer Exiges.
  4. Same problem here in 2015 when my car was just 1 week old. the lock plate had to be adjusted.
  5. 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....
  6. 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 there are strictly rules when it's allowed to shoot or not. It makes no sense for me and probaly the rest of this world to not give firearms and tasers to the people that must protect you.
  7. 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 😅 i like to see these beautiful lights even on daylight.
  8. 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. ´ http://
  9. 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 😁 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.
  10. 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 😗 http://
  11. Guess what... I measured the length of my wing today 😒 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?
  12. 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.
  13. so, I got my Eltech "plug and play" wing today after 10 weeks of waiting and drive a Roadster now 😡 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 very special sleeve nuts, that i wasn't able to find anywhere. ....needless to say Eltech isn' reachable and in vacation since today ! no more comments....... the quality itself is good but this company drives me mad
  14. Thank you Matteo, your money is on it's way. Please check FB Messenger and tell me if everything is okay.
