  1. 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!

    I'm sure they said that NATO represents 50% of the world's economy and Russia 2%. He'd be a bit of a dick trying to attack NATO, it won't end well for Russia.

    1,700 people arrested in Moscow yesterday from the protesters, this isn't a popular war in his home country. 

    That’s 1.21*10^-5 percent of the population

    Mine was delivered with faulty brakes, and an on going issue with leaks whenever it rains, meaning I can't leave it outside without a cover or the doors soak up water. It's been to a main dealer who has reported 'well it might be bad door seals but we don't really know, but no new parts are available and we don't know when they will be so it's going to get damp over winter'.

    It appears people have had cars and no issues, but dealing with issues is an absolute pain, dealers are miles away and don't actually seem to know what they're doing, then parts arn't available, and Lotus generally don't seem to care unless you're an 'influencer'. I honestly can't wait to get rid of mine - not because it's a fundamentally bad car, just the thought that it's not quite working and if anything more goes wrong it will be a lot of ball ache to fix. 

    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.

     

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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…
