  1. Finally got my PS4S's fitted and am most impressed so far. Noticeably quieter and the ride feels softer too. I also haven't encountered the 'skipping' that would occur with the Pirellis when manoeuvring on full lock at low speeds. I have no intent of using them on track but for road use they certainly get my vote
  2. Thanks for confirming Gareth, The std width 275s are available with Camskills at present so I think I will stick with those like the OP. By my reckoning though, changing to 285s should make less than 1% difference in speedo reading so that wouldn't explain the 9mph difference you're seeing, unless you're travelling at supersonic speeds Maybe it was already like that as you say.
  3. My Pzero fronts need replacing but I've decided to take the opportunity to change over to the Michelins all round. Is the consensus now to go for the wider 285 rears (as per the 400) and if so could someone confirm these are the correct tyres please? Fronts - 235/35R19 (91Y) XL TL Michelin Pilot Sport 4S PS4S Fronts from Camskill Rears - 285/30R20 (99Y) XL TL Michelin Pilot Sport 4S PS4S Rears from Camskill Thanks in advance
  4. The badges are just stuck on with double-sided tape. There are 2 pins at the 3 o'clock / 9 o'clock position that locate in holes in the clam but they are purely for location, there are no threads or nuts. As already mentioned you just need a little fishing line to cut through the tape.
  5. I'm sure I read somewhere that they were made by a company called Pektron in Derby?
  6. There's quite a while yet before we'll know the answer to that one The Jim Clark Trust is delighted to offer this incredible sports car as an amazing competition prize to help support plans for a new Jim Clark Museum. The winner will be announced at the opening of the new museum in summer 2019.
  7. It looks like it could be a self-adhesive trim moulding, something like this...
  8. A couple of good places you could maybe try if near Burton on Trent... Paul Shipley at PJS Sportscars who are a Lotus approved service centre (and where I take my Evora). Or Gav at Unit 4 who is a very well respected independent.
  9. Trying to park up 1500 Lotus in a 90 minute window....I reckon you might get to experience it all over again
  10. A big thanks must go to Paul Shipley of PJS Sports Cars who pleaded my case with Lotus who then did after all show significant goodwill by offering to cover the cost of the replacement master cylinder, it's associated hoses, fluids and 2/3 of the labour cost so I am well pleased with that. Of course when the clam was removed it soon became apparent that the other failing - the mud flap brackets also required attention. They were rusting badly and a few of the fixings were compromised so I took the opportunity to have some stainless replacement ones fitted at the same time. Given that the new plastic master cylinder is presumably exactly the same as the old plastic one I'm hoping the same problem will not occur again anytime soon. The main thing though is that it's back and just in time for Lotus70!
  11. An update on mine. (A 2014 NA with just 13K miles). After my initial low pedal in July I have had a number of further occurrences since, all after the car has been stood in my garage for a few days or more. I've always been able to resolve it by pulling the pedal back up and subsequently pumping it a few times. I took it to my local Lotus service agent this week, the initial plan being to see if simply bleeding the system might resolve it. However it soon became apparent that all was not well with the master cylinder and it took some considerable time for them to get the pedal back again such that I was able to drive home again. So a new master cylinder has been ordered for fitment next week. Although now outside of warranty, given the low mileage and the fact it already has the later master cylinder fitted, the agent has approached Lotus to see if they might be prepared to offer some goodwill gesture towards the cost of replacement....fingers crossed. I could do with it properly sorted pronto as I'm booked up for Lotus 70 at the end of the month
  12. I received 2 emails from 'Lotus70' the first was the order receipt quoting the order #, the second acknowledged creation of my account and provided an automatically generated password. Presumably you haven't received these then? Are you able to use the link Bibs has provided, enter your email address and click on the 'Lost your password' option?
