  1. When I viewed the car it had the standard exhaust but I'm pretty sure the last owner mentioned on the V6 Facebook group that he'd fitted a valved 2bular?
  2. I was offered it for less than that but then I'm very fussy (but then so are most Lotus owners!) I wasnt prepared to buy something with such a hole in the history as it suggests the car hasn't been cared for as £40k Lotus should (and the condition at the time suggested the same). I think it's fair to say Lotus owners overall are more fastidious about upkeep than owners of other marques, so most cars tend to be very well looked after, so the expectation is similar when buying (hence patchy servicing is probably a bigger deal than for other cars). I ended up buying a much much nicer ca
  3. @SSingh Long story so I won't go into detail now but I know a bit of history behind the car. I had chance to buy it before it went into the dealership that sold it last year, at significantly less than its been sold for now. I passed on it, despite really wanting a red one at the time. The car wasn't serviced for 3 years and around 8k miles (not even an oil change) and in that time it did several trackdays. It also needed a fair amount of tlc, much of which may well have since been addressed but imo there are much better cars out there for the money..
  4. Never been a massive fan of the GRP lights on the earlier rears with 4 lights, but with just 2 that looks spot on I dropped you a PM Steve too, when you've got a mo. Cheers!
  5. Hi Kristof, don't suppose you've any pics of the internal modifications made to the stock rear box? Did you replace the perforated large internal pipe completely with a solid one and if so how did you route the small internal pipe to ensure it still functioned? I'm considering doing something similar so welcome any pointers!
  6. There was a red club racer for sale last year so I assume they did a handful in non-standard, special order colours.
  7. There also seems to be a common misconception that the Roadsters are "softer", when in actual fact the springs and dampers are the same, different geo and a slightly thicker rear arb on the Roadster are the only difference (race suspension being an option on both the Roadster and Coupe V6S)
  8. Cockchafer perhaps? (no sniggering at the back ) They normally appear around April/May but maybe earlier due to the mild winter? First time one landed next to me whilst out in the garage I was rather startled at the size of the beast!
  9. Bit of a rarity that, looks like nice example. Is it a manual? I looked on and off at Cayman R's over the last few years when I had my Elise but never managed to get a drive of one as there only ever seemed to be PDK's for sale. Think they'll continue to hold value well so probably a safe place for your money. Don't suppose you took the 2bular off the Exige before sale?!!
  10. This is burnt... has more of a gold cast to it in certain lights whereas metallic/chrome orange just shouts ORANGE!
  11. Wing and splitter now fitted to mine thanks to @Mattmahope
  12. You're welcome! Glad you got sorted
  13. Congrats on the purchase! Can't beat them for smiles per mile, even more fun with the roof off too PS4's will be my next tyre choice too and are standard fitment on the latest 350's. If you're quick Black Circles have got 15% off Michelin's until Wednesday..
