  1. Take the panel off and check you have 12volts going to the motor. The window won’t move due to gearing in the motor. cheers Mark
  2. There is small print to say specs can change… happened when I bought my Exige. Carbon bits missing etc. typical Lotus. Out of interest bumped into a guy on my way home from Classic LeMans. He was running an RRR dash, to me it looked far far far better than the AIM. Not sure on the full feature set but much clearer to look at and you can customise it. cheers ”Lights on buzzer” anyone? This is a pretty basic function that should, but does not work….. doh!
  3. Was there ever a fix for the “left my lights on” buzzer? As there is no buzzer on mine if I get out of the car and I’ve left them on. cheers
  4. Reuse you gas struts like I did… see here. Really easy and a much much better solution. go to page 2 for all the details how to do it…
  5. That’s interesting as I had bought a Wi-Fi camera, but before AIM, that linked to my iPhone. I could never get the signal to function properly due to all the steel and also it wasn’t a quality device. But that’s, that’s interesting cheers
  6. Any chance of a photo? I have typically seen them in the upper part of the diffuser trim but I was never sure they would last due to the heat fro the exhaust. cheers
  7. Hi, check out the thread. I made a set for one guy until his originals rocked up, really easy if you have a template and some 2mm aluminium. cheers
  8. It’s oxidisation…. Common on aluminium, usually when it has been wet. Try scotchbrite pad and maybe some metal polish. But it will come back. cheers
  9. You don’t need a special tool. A bolt with two nuts will work. Lots of videos on utube. cheers
  10. That’s 1.21*10^-5 percent of the population
  11. MSAR… ask for Malcolm. Tell him Mark put you on to it. cheers
  12. There is a new bar coming out for Exige’s with the carbon seats. I’ve had one on order for three months. Hopefully will rock up in a month or so. This gets around the eyelet issue and properly located the harness straps. cheers
  13. sorry to hear you pain… Dave is correct about adjustment. Your dealer has probably done this, but there are two adjusting screws that you can see with the door open (pretty certain you can see it) that alters the angle of the window. Screw it one way and it applies more pressure to the seal. this clip shows you how, you have nothing to lose I guess. cheers ps you should try Oakmere always been fantastic with me.
  14. My 2p worth... If you asked the ordinary joe in the street what defines a sports car, I guarantee (as well as I can guarantee anything) that one of the things he will mention is, it must be a drophead. If its not a drophead, its not a sports car......IMHO If its not a drophead, its a GT car.... I now await the flaming fires of hell....... 👹 cheers Mark
  15. Have to say that @MrP_ is super good
  16. I bought my daughter an S2 111S and it’s THE best lotus I have ever driven. £ for £ just incredible, much more fun than my Exige, far superior to my Elan and better than any Europa I have driven. Just a stunning car ❤️❤️
  17. Well I guess people might be waiting for the cup versions to appear. Lotus have form for this…
  18. Nah, gearbox temp does not work… I don’t want to say too much but I don’t really feel the product has been “supported” in the way it should. I got taken in by all the hype pre launch, but on reflection The original dash is best. At least you can see the shift lights and indicators if you are tall and the lights warnings buzzer works as it should. buggy, an interesting phrase you use… good luck
  19. If you have the ODB2 module switched off it won’t read. It’s also interesting to know that if this ODB module is on the the Lotus Dealer Software won’t work. So when you get a service turn it off. cheers
  20. You can get the front and rear clams “bulked”… this means all done from one piece, with the odd cut so no lines BUT the detailed need still be at the top of his game. for example expel has top and bottom sections on the front wing with a join along the top of the wing. Will look ok for a while until the joins get filled in with residue from driving, then it looks awful. I have Feynlab self heal plus coating where there is no PPF, abs it’s excellent. Just pour on wash water and all wash marks come out, fantastic stuff. Mine is PPF’d at the front, front hatch, roof, rear deck, spoiler, sills and rocker panels. I forgot about at the rear behind the wheels, that’s a good shout. some links… look under pre cut kits and you will see what I mean… cheers mark
