  1. Not particularly, as I assume it was full dealers only - we certainly weren't present! But Lotus are working on improving some of the issues that have been raised in recent times, i.e. reducing back orders, etc.
  2. You said it's a new belt? How so, your car isn't that old? Is it definitely belt slip, rather than a pulley? I fully understand, but if everyone goes elsewhere, there won't be any official outlets! Watch this space, however, as this situation with pricing should be improving soon. Dave
  3. Auto tensioner on the V6 engines. The newer cars with more open rear hatches can be more prone to water ingress. How long does it do it for? Dave
  4. How about your local friendly Lotus service centre?
  5. Colin, the ECU hardware is the same, but the firmware on it is _potentially_ different. This is not on a per-car basis, it is on a when-Lotus-made-a-revision basis. The per-car aspects are programmed in the ECU, and can easily be modified using Lotus diagnositic tool. This is no different on any 4x0 as it is on any Lotus for about the last 10 years. Once the firmware level is known, it is plain sailing - the firmware level can be discovered using the Lotus diagnostic tool. Dave
  6. @electro_boy Hi Jai. How did you get on with regards to your insurance, having non-OEM traction control? Had a customer asking me about this with regard to EMU, as his insurer politely declined once they knew it would no longer have the factory DPM system! Dave
  7. And 1st-2nd plane is OK? Does the car move when you engage reverse (clutch pedal down to floor)?
  8. Hi Mark. The reverse blocker plate adjustment does also affect the 1/2nd gear plane. Worth having a look at it to ensure it is adjusted correctly (not loose). Is the issue you have in the cross gate, or when you attempt to engage reverse (pushing the lever forwards once across the gate). Dave
  9. 410 does have pulley. If you use the car alot on track, then we would always recommend the chargecooler, but appreciate it is big chunk of money relative to the 430. For road use, 430 is fine, you'll lose your licence before you heatsoak it. Dave
  10. Hangar 111


    Blimey! Got experience with 7s if required Dave
  11. Shocking when it's detailed in every handbook written (but not read) I would need to double-check but I think it might be MY19 - I've seen it on a couple of newer cars. Some of the fasteners have changed, and there is a box section riveted on which means you can lift at points C without a puck (or removing tray). Dave
  12. This. Remove the undertray or insert pucks to access position C. Applies to all cars with the 111 chassis (except new Exige which has strengtheners built in to undertray). Dave
  13. Nonsense. Exige V6 is fine on scissor lift if done properly and safely.
