  1. I've got the 380 cup with valves that open with Sport button. Sound is lots of fun, speakerphone useless but other than that it's great.
  2. What model year is your car out of curiosity? From my understanding they aren't an option but some sort of law requirement but I could be wrong.
  3. Back. So with the car off stepping on the brakes doesn't turn the brake lights on. I'm not sure if its always been like this but I'd imagine with car off brake lights should light up. With car on lightly pressing on brakes doesn't turn lights on so looks like it is the sensor. I have maybe around half a cm to 1cm of play before brake lights come on.
  4. Actually didn't check, let me go back down and try it. I don't think I'll adjust it myself, but I'm just curious.
  5. So just got my first error light I think since I bought the car. I've done around 25,000km mileage on the car since I got it so it's been fairly reliable. The past 7 months I've barely been driving it because I bought a classic Alfa and been driving that every day so haven't really gained much mileage. The last issue I had with the car was around 6 months ago when one of the factory exhaust clippings broke loose and my exhaust basically became a straight pipe. Easy fix though at the dealer. This morning though I started the car and found the infamous TCFAULT error. We are in total lock do
  6. Yeah I have the visors and they really don't do anything except make people laugh when I show them how slim my visors are. Never used them because they don't do anything.
  7. Weird then they might be just standard for the Middle East cuz my previous Exige S came with them as well and @BAS has them also on his 430 Cup.
  8. Are sun visors an option? Because my Cup has them, thought they were standard.
  9. So my 380 Cup originally came with 1 year warranty. I was then able to purchase extended warranty through Lotus UK for it. The options/prices they had given me were: Additional 2 years 20,000 Kms. GB Pds. 835.00 Additional 3 years 30,000 Kms. GB Pds 1,800.00 (This is extended cover, mechanical and electrical failures only, and it excludes any failures that could be attributed to or aggravated by track use.)
  10. For the Cup sticker prices, here they are but they're in Kuwaiti Dinars so you need to convert: 1KWD = 2.93Euro
  11. guys, where is the vent opening located so i can close it off asap
  12. yeah my dash is dusty all the time!! so this is a thing, where is the opening to the vent on the outside of the car and can i just close it off with ductape or a balloon?
  13. Something super freaky happened to me today. I was driving on the highway when suddenly a huge bug fell out from behind my sun visor, onto the dashboard and then ran across the dash towards the passenger side and then into the top window vent. I was like WHAT THE FUCK. Like I think i kept going wtf for like 5 minutes trying to figure out what that was, how it got in and what I am supposed to do. I'm not scared of bugs but didn't know what kind of bug this was and the lotus cockpit is pretty tiny so don't want a bug flying around while I'm driving, it's gross. So I decided to keep dri
  14. Race for me, maybe if our local track had huge run offs instead of walls I'd try turning it completely off, but it's Race for now.
  15. I have the same pads and use my car daily. the screeching sound is very minimal and i don't even notice it.
  16. 380 Cup here but I've basically got the same decals plus the matt black stick on the front spoiler. 18,000km, 2 years ownership and everything still there and fine. When I first got the car I was worried the 380 Cup wordmark decals would peel off and so bought a spare but they dont seem like they're peeling or coming off now.
  17. When @BAS got the spanner at the track this past weekend we used my OBD reader and it didn't pull up any errors. Then we headed to the garage pit next door over to Lotus (they were at the track that day) and they connected their computer to his car and were able to find a bunch of random issues.
  18. A carbon wrap could also be an option (probably easier as well) and could potentially blend into the interior better. The 430 Cup already uses a matt carbon binnacle so wouldn't be too out of place.
