  1. Exige 380 ecu remap

    I believe there’s more different about the 380 engine which is why the Rev limit is lower...
  2. GFWilliams Liquid Yellow Exige S

    Yes to different offset, so I don’t need a spacer. Still not sure if it’ll rub or not though
  3. My 380 Cup!

    That's a brilliant spec, congratulations on the upgrade! I guess you'll have to be a more committed driver than Bader to stay in front?
  4. Lotus SUV...

    If the SUV looks like the render above I'll put a deposit down. Would look great in the garage next to my Exige!

    The standard lotus forged wheels require a 3mm spacer. The 380 and 430 Cup have different subframe and damper top to the cars before them. There is a chance that the tyre will rub on the damper, but I am hoping it won’t! Need the Nitrons to arrive to find out...
  6. GFWilliams Liquid Yellow Exige S

    They’re super wide on the wheels. I won’t drive my car until my new Nitrons and Tillett seats arrive which is expected to be mid-end Feb so I can’t say until then. Not driving the car is killing me, but I want it to be perfect next time I drive it! I’ve of course driven the 430 Cup which has the same and there was lots of grip and they seemed like great tyres so I’m confident I’ll be happy!

    New tyres went on today - Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2. They're WIDE
  8. Lotus 3 Eleven on New Year

    That's awesome, has it got an LSD?
  9. GFWilliams Liquid Yellow Exige S

    I fancied a game of spot the difference 🙈

    You would have to cut the carbon to make the 8" Garw fit. As said above, that's factory carbon
  11. GFWilliams Liquid Yellow Exige S

    Very easy. Remove the two screws underneath then pull hard on the whole panel and it'll come out

    I wrapped the "glove tray" this evening and test fitted the new liquid yellow heater control panel, I love how it looks although I think I might need someone better to try wrapping the "glove tray" or maybe even get it painted. Been thinking it might be nice to anodise the silver controls too... Here's a photoshop render: Also put in a bit of sound proofing. I know I'll get scolded for this due to the added weight, but I've started to get hearing damage from cars so I'd quite like to get out of the car and not have my ears ringing. I think I'll still be able to get away from @alias23 even with carpets and sound insulation!

    @MartynB - Tillett have been great and are going above and beyond with my new seats, trying some stitching options to see if they're possible with the pads. I've really enjoyed working with them, although they're very very difficult things to photograph! Edit: Their new brochure...

    It's very easy to remove the steering wheel: Disconnect the battery in the boot Remove two Allen key bolts in the side of the steering wheel then pull airbag out Disconnect wires for airbag (easiest to get at the ones on the actual airbag) and horn Remove airbag Undo 4 Allen key bolts inside the wheel (not sure if this is different because I have a komo-tec spacer but I assume not) then the wheel will come off

    Mine will be almost identical trimming but with yellow stitching I think. That looks brilliant!
