  1. Thanks @GER After a bit of file and sandpaper action, it now fits, just. I didn’t want to wreck the surround as I’ll probably put the old unit back as and when I sell the car. Definitly needed the camera adapter though. Alpine must have changed that at some point, although I see you fitted a 702, whereas I used a 710. Maybe that’s the difference. Also fitted one of these while I was at it - Plug and play class D amp to drive the door speakers that I’ve upgraded to these - Massive improvement over the standard cheap things. Had to hack a bit out of the door to make room though. And to complete the upgrade, one of these - Again, didn’t just fit. Had to make a spacer ring as it hasn’t got lugs like the standard one. All in all, a huge improvement just by changing components without having to completely rewire the car.
  2. Just tried to do this upgrade. A warning, not quite plug and play. Needs an adaptor cable for the camera. Not a huge problem as I was able to get one from my local dealer, but it’s another £25. More importantly, the size of the nose of the new unit is very slightly bigger than the old. The surround doesn’t fit. Ordered one from Lotus (£53) but, unsurprisingly, on back order. Looks like I’ll be driving around with a bit of my dash missing for a while. @GER how did you make yours fit?
  3. Yep, it’s annoying but I just left the screen up all the time unless I parked somewhere iffy. You can set it to stay up in the menu. I’ve posted this pic before. Indicate right and push up slightly on the stalk and it clears. Pretty sure MrP shortened his cos he’s clever like that! It’s obviously a lot easier to cut down if you don’t have cruise control.
  4. No. Bolt number 9 on this: As I said before, please don’t mess with your steering if you are not absolutely sure what you’re doing.
  5. Hi Raf. Thanks for taking this little lot off my hands. Just noticed this thread, so read the pm I’ve just sent with that in mind. Looks like you’re well advanced with the install but feel free to pester me if you need anything. K.
  6. Thanks @MrP_ ,you got in first. I’d just say if you’re not confident taking the shroud off, should you be messing with something as important as your steering. All modifications are at the owner’s own risk, etc.
  7. Don’t forget the o-ring.
  8. I’ve just put all my Pioneer stuff in the classifieds if anyone wants a complete one-stop-shop upgrade.
  9. Best I have is this. You can see the column is up against the top of the shroud.
  10. If I remember, you need to remove the top and bottom of the shroud. It does not take long, (about 1 hour) but I have done 3 cars now so have the experience!
  11. I’d agree the seats are a marmite thing. I found the carbon seats fantastic on a 410 test drive but you do loose the practicality of folding backrests with them, so getting in the back (even to stow bags) is a PITA. (I thought anyway) It’s one of the reasons I went for a 400 with Sparco seats as I was coming from an Exige and wanted that practicality in my “grown-up” new car.
  12. There’s two lights in the boot? Woo hoo! I’ve only noticed one. Evora ownership just keeps on giving.
  13. I can raise @alias23 ‘s footrest offer with a full set of genuine carpets. Full coverage (over the “step” in front of the seats) short passenger version with footrest. Any good?
  14. Thanks chaps. Seems an odd way to do it but there you go, Lotus knows best.
  15. Um. Hopefully not. It’s only 4 months old! I was wondering what other folk’s cars were like for comparison. I’m thinking it’s a breather of some sort, but I’ve had a look behind the wheelarch at the bottle and can’t see anywhere for it to connect. I’m also getting random “bottle empty” lights on the dash, but it’s full. Mystery. Might ask the dealer.
