  1. Phil and yourself decimating all. Fantastic stuff. I used to compete in the drifting with Phil years ago, great pilot and building some awesome cars so you are both in good company. The E30 perspective:
  2. It was wet coming home this evening so hard to say. Feels sharper. The sound is incredible, as if the car could be any more addictive!
  3. I've mine in but now I've seen your stunning engine bay I'm not going to post mine in here. Great idea polishing the pipe! Superb kit, sounds fantastic!
  4. Fitted @alias23 intake last night. First of all, what a quality kit. Lovely ali welds, quality of everything is superb and the level of detail from the mm perfect silicone joiner to the P-clip and replacement wheel arch liner washers. Fitting guide also comprehensive. Took me a few hours to fit, and after a fairly tame run to work to let the ECU learn the whine is addictive. Added benefit that on light throttle its barely noticable, so my morning podcast was unaffected. Hopefully it dries off so I can get the roof off going home and really let it whiiiiiiine.
  5. I'm referring to Imran's which are different.
  6. They only go on one way. Well they could go on the wrong way I guess. Mine are @alias23 who is knocking out great stuff for the exige, looking forward to getting my hands on his intake kit!
  7. I like the silver wheels too! Rear plinth is tricky it’s held on by very strong double sided tape and bending it when you are pulling it can mark the clam. Then just a good coach builder to do the painting. Lotus give the paint they use for the black in the workshop manual. I also bought the masking kit but it was probably OTT, although has left mine perfect. Good painter helped that too.
  8. No problem @jcx its in the TDV section of the service manual - attached below sn_tdv_Exige_S_&_Sport_Cup_vehicle data _0.pdf
  9. After removing the rear plinth to put on my smaller plate I was fairly disgusted to see some dealer (or owner) had drilled the plinth and marked the body behind it. I was going to just paint it blue, but then lotus do that handy mask kit and list exactly how they prep and paint the matt black rear, so it had to be done. And regardless of how it looks, after not having it for a week giving it a blip home... sore grinning cheeks! And not sure if I mentioned but she's rolling on Michelin Cup2s which are a breath of fresh air after the Pzeros. Spectacular tyre. I nearly went Nankang NS2R, and although I do wonder how close they would come to the Cup2s, if the tables were turned I'd definitely be thinking... would the Michelins have been a better job. All based on excellent advice gleaned from TLF!
  10. PM me your address and will post you a pair of wing nuts and bolts. I had to buy a pack!
  11. Enjoying this amazing weather we are having...
  12. Great idea for a thread @Lo2zz and no doubt this is very helpful to learn about the dramatic effects slight changes in geo setup can have on an Exige. On the subject, I've just got a set of Michelin Pilot Cup2s fitted (215/40/17 and 265/35/18). The car is nervous/twitchy, and setting the geo did help with this but I still find it unsettled on a straight smooth road (eg it would try and pull you over the crown in the road at high leptons). I was thinking of increasing front toe (to 0 or toe in maybe) - and I did notice in the service manual that a 350 with Michelins, Lotus reccommend toe in on front rather than toe out for a v6 s on pirellis. Thoughts appreciated! (figures in degrees and minutes FYI!)
  13. I used Tee Nuts that you can slip behind the mesh and then turn 90 degrees, holds the plate nicely - Tee Nuts on Ebay
  14. At a recent cars and coffee - excuse the dirty snout.
  15. Doubting myself here so just went out to the garage to check. They definitely look great out of the box!
