  1. You're welcome! Glad you got sorted
  2. 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..
  3. Fingers crossed then! After a Z4 the biggest shock might be the weight of the steering at parking speeds. It's not as bad as some of the reviews make out but very noticeable when stepping from a modern PAS car. Once moving it's a delight of course!
  4. Would that be the yellow one? If so the spec looks good, it's got sensible mileage and with the hardtop included I think it's pretty reasonably priced. In case you've not seen it there's also a blue coupe for the same money on the V6 Exige Facebook group, also well priced and I think it's got the soft top conversion included, probably can't go wrong with either. I've only had my V6 roadster a few weeks after many years in an Elise and I'm loving every minute, great cars!
  5. Sprayed with Flash (as good an all purpose cleaner as anything else for such jobs) and after it had soaked for a few minutes I agitated with an old wheel brush before rinsing. This brought off most of the road grime then went over everything with a good old magic sponge. I also used Autoglym Magma on the brakes (and the inside of the wheels too) before cleaning the bells with the magic sponge and polishing the calipers with Meguiars Scratch X, brought them up a treat
  6. Vivid green really is stunning, also a colour I'd like to own one day (the list is growing!)
  7. Yes haha orange is a distant memory now! Can't believe the difference the wheel colour makes, I think the silver draws your eyes away from the colour of the bodywork and now with satin black it looks even more stunning than ever in the sunlight The plastidip gives a pretty nice finish too considering it comes out of a can.. Whilst I had the wheels off I went to town and deep cleaned under the arches/tub and all the suspension, then finished with ACF50 on all the metal bits and Autoglym rubber care stuff on the plastics. Oh, and polished the brake calipers too I've also considered painting them, I really like yellow against the carbon grey but I think it'd have to be red to avoid clashing with the interior. Regarding the spoiler, yes I'm looking to add one but thinking of getting hold of a second engine cover so I don't have to drill the original and can revert back at any time
  8. I'm considering changing the wheel colour so plastidipped them satin black to see what it'd look like. For those who aren't familiar it's sold as a "liquid wrap", basically a liquid rubber coating and can easily be peeled off if you don't like it. I've used it before and it's very durable (even survived around the exhaust on the diffuser of my 111R). Quite happy with the sleek and stealthy look...
  9. Hi Dave, it certainly is a beauty, got a lot of compliments at the LDC meeting last weekend I get what you say about let roadsters be roadsters, but I bought yours because it's such an immaculate, pampered example, not because it's a roadster. I actually passed on the red coupe mentioned above, I was offered it before Oakmere got it and I won't go into details on here other than to say that despite the colour and spec being my preferred choice, that particular car definitely wasn't for me. I'm sure I'll stick with it, I had similar feelings about my 111R until I made it my own then ended up keeping 8 years! It'll be nothing major, well not yet anyway and certainly nothing that isn't reversible! I'm already on my 4th tank of fuel in a week so it think it's fair to say I'm very much enjoying it so far
  10. It is a great spec and I love the grey/red leather combo but my daily driver is virtually identical so I was really wanting something a bit different for a change (my 111r was also grey!) At the moment I'm stuck between leaving it fairly standard (but definitely adding wing and splitter) and then maybe moving to a 380/410 in a couple of years or going the whole hog and changing wheels, suspension, more power etc... The project threads on here really could lead to serious upgrade-itis!!
  11. My latest addition... Replaces a 111r which I had for 8 years and thoroughly enjoyed. A grey Roadster wasn't my first choice by a long shot but it was such a nice example that I couldn't miss it. I am however already thinking I should maybe have hung on for the red or orange coupe I always planned on getting! Hopefully once I've added the wing and splitter I might feel a bit different..
  12. Looking for an original V6 / 350 rear wing and / or front splitter for my Roadster. Anyone got anything they no longer have use for? Message me with details, thanks.
  13. After months of searching for a nice coupe I couldn't resist DaveB's Roadster which was up for sale recently, so if any of you UK big wing guys need a home for your original wing I've got the perfect place for one Already been in touch with Imran about splitters but if anyone wants to shift an original one I'd be interested in that too.
