  1. Just had new TPMS sensors fitted yesterday and bought a set of these. A lot cheaper than the Lotus ones and come pre-programmed so they were recognised within a few miles Really good service as well, ordered at 11am and they were delivered the next days.
  2. Yes, of course, this one seems to work perfectly. SEAT LEON MK2 1P COBRA ALARM SIREN SENSOR MODULE 4M0158A2A
  3. My rear parking sensors also gave up the ghost recently. After swapping a couple of the sensors I figured it had to be the wiring or the ECU, so I took a punt on a secondhand Cobra ECU from a Seat Leon mk2 from eBay for £20. Luckily for me, it’s a perfect substitute and sorted out the problem The sensors sound a little quieter than the original ones, but as they’re substantially cheaper than ones from Lotus I can live with it.
  4. Brilliant, thanks for the help, Tiger Seal ordered, and the lid is due to arrive tomorrow (great service from Eliseshop). Just need to get it sprayed, look forward to seeing it in place.
  5. I haven’t bought the entire tailgate, just the louvres that replace the broken glass, so I’m just looking to find out what to use to glue it to the tailgate?
  6. Already thought of that, they only cover the windscreen and I didn’t notice the distinction in the cover, my fault for not reading the small print
  7. Bit of a thread resurrection here, but for some reason the glass in the tailgate shattered as I was driving along... It seems as though the louvred tailgate is the most cost effective option to sort this out, so can I please ask how people bonded it to the tailgate?
  8. I had this happen three or four times in the first couple of years of ownership. Since I had the transmission control software updated three years ago, it hasn’t happened at all. it may be a coincidence of course, but the newer software certainly seemed a step up from the original.
  9. Ah, Brits always amuse me. Yeah, let’s cut down all the trees in our street so we don’t get some bird shit or a few leaves on the car... Look on the bright side, street trees obscure the boring shit box houses that most people in this country live in.
  10. Get a small spanner and try tightening the valve at the base where it is attached to the wheel. I had the exact same issue and repeatedly deflating and reflating the tyre did squat, even after repeated journeys (and with the TPMS stating it was at a higher pressure than the other tyres which weren’t flashing) Its’s got to be worth 30 seconds of your time?
  11. I had the same thing myself but it turned out that the valve needed a little tightening. Once I did this, the warning light went off after I drove it for a few miles. It may be worthwhile trying this before you buy new sensors?
  12. I sent them a sample of my paprika leather and bought one of their repair kits from them. Excellent colour match
  13. Well my dampers still haven’t arrived from the 19th of March and neither Lotus nor Motorsport Auctions have bothered to respond to my emails. Kind of annoying as they were such a good price. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to start a Paypal dispute to get a refund.
  14. Hmm, that’s a bit worrisome... Looks like something’s gone wrong with my order, I’ll chase them I know but Graham(?) was pretty good last time there was an issue with an order from slotus...
  15. The callipers I ordered arrived within 2 days, so all very Lotus I suppose! Fingers crossed for us all!
  16. Not received the dampers or a refund yet. Ordered them on the 19th of March- I’m guessing they aren’t going to turn up...
  17. Yup, they look absolutely fantastic, just waiting for the dampers to arrive now, Fast service as well, very impressed...
  18. I believe the dampers are normally about £500 each from DeRoure. I probably won’t need them for ages but you never know, one on my Elise failed at 40,000miles
  19. Yes you’re right, the dampers were far too cheap to ignore so I ordered a set today! Yes, I’ll be keeping the Evora for a while yet (unless the roadster eventually arrives) but I’m seriously contemplating a 1-2 year Elise 220 as a weekend car (although my wife may kill me..)
  20. I'll be doing the same myself- a complete set of red calipers and pads for £280 was too good to pass up. Just wonderng if I should get a spare set of dampers they’re advertising for £90...
  21. Hah, weird, never noticed this before! I guess it just caught my attention as it's much more pronounced on the left side than the right. Thanks for the reply, feel really stupid now...
  22. Definitely, the other side has a very slight dimple, but it's barely visible
  23. Just got my car back from the garage to have a scratch reprayed, and I noticed that bottom of the rear bumper is kinked n right next to the diffuser, just where the mounting bracket is. I never noticed it before (but that doesn't necessarily mean anything other than I am very unobservant) There is no paintwork damage at all and there are no marks on the diffuser either so I'm positive I haven't reversed into anything. Any ideas what might be causing this, could the mounting bracket be bent or rusted through or something?
