    It sheared a bolt on the rear toe arm! Also needs some new front pads The M3 and Evora were both easy to get in and out of. Only a half cage in the Beemer.

    Film making?

    Buddsy you're more than welcome to PM me and I'll give you my number and am happy to talk to you about the realities of film-making. It's not impossible, just unprobable.

    Film making?

    I can give an answer, it won't be one you'd like but it will be one you'd expect. The only kind of film that could be realistically made on anything approaching a reasonable budget would be a documentary type film, but even those are £££ and the main subjects will all be long gone, which takes away a lot of the drama.
  4. Glad to have helped Bob. I saw your car last year when I was filming near Silverstone. Very good choice.
  5. I also experienced the same sensation of "car quicker with exhaust quiet" - perhaps it was just a placebo as you hear all the other noises that much more?
  6. Nice colour choice. I'm with Dave too, non-black pack is rather nice on the 400 and quite rare.
  7. I used the sugru stuff in the end, the scoops weren't a perfect fit unfortunately. I don't know if they were Elise shop ones though as I bought them from someone here. I think they'd have looked better painted black on my car.
  8. If it helps, I do think the 380 in a gonzo colour is the best looking Exige made, with the possible exception of the LF1
  9. @pete757 I am certainly sad to part with it, as I had a connection with it I'll likely never have again. I doubt I'll be able to afford another new car. At some point in the new year I hope to be re-united with the old girl, then it will be interesting to see how the car feels after a while out of the saddle.
  10. Just to add for consideration, are you going to track the car? Exhaust on the 380 too noisy for many track days and you'll hate getting rid of it as it sounds so glorious. @Stratton Motor Company currently have a blue 380 in which looks stunning. No doubt Alex there would be happy to talk to you about your V6
  11. I can confirm @Loquacious Lew does indeed get a big kick out of his 400
  12. Are you playing on the XB1 X or whatever they call it? Rockstar traditionally have "meh" graphics for me, but make up for it in the gameplay and story.
  13. At 400 hp, 10hp is well within what you would consider a reasonable margin of error. Most manufacturers would say you could take two motors - both "400bhp" and for one to make 400, one to make 410 would not be unusual, at all. I'm not surprised that the two are the exact same. I've always been more interested in how genuine the weight saving of the 410/430 is. But I don't know anyone who has weighed one to compare with what I got when I weighed mine. The lap time improvements of the 430 are going to be from the improved aero, stickier rubber, stiffer suspension - that kind of stuff. Makes a far bigger difference than the extra 30hp ever could.
  14. 85%? Every time I've gotten in an Esprit I've gone "Christ this is much bigger than you expect"
  15. I went in there once, under Bahar - before I had any real involvement in Lotus, and back then I was curious how they could even afford such a store. The last couple of visits were absolutely heartbreaking - I felt it was a PR disaster right in the heart of our capital an I thought spending a little on making it look nice would have been a wise thing to do..... but seeing as they could not be arsed I am glad it's now closed.
