    That really does enhance the engine bay and complements the car brilliantly

    Great colour combination Alistair, welcome to the Cup 430 club. Would like to see a picture of your yellow charge cooler cover
  4. Yes planning to !

    Indeed it was but still very quick and allegedly only in region of 360 bhp which is quite believable as he’s only hitting 142 mph down Hangar

    Ben Clucas around Silverstone GP circuit sub 2.20 in V6 Cup Not sure any of the Lotus’s at Silverstone yesterday could manage that

    Yes don’t want to start a power war !!! Most of the tales about McLaren are unfortunately true having had firsthand experience.

    If you think Lotus dealers are bad try McLaren Just had it confirmed that while you can get a Komotec 490 upgrade for a 311, the ECU in the Cup 430 will only allow 475. Same engine different ECU !!!

    Fully concur , getting your car personalised that little bit more for yourself is all part of the Lotus experience. I also had the front and rear tow eye/strap changed to yellow to match. I must say I never thought of getting the Chargecooler top colour changed from red. A great idea and look forward to seeing it

    Best get used to the car before thinking of any power upgrades. Currently there isn’t a Komotec 490 upgrade only the 475 in any event. Better off if you haven’t already buying a ceramic coat and some PPF
  12. In which case you may want to do what I’ve done. Ebay seems to be awash with Corsas for my Mac 285/35/20 normally unused/part worn from reputable tyre fitting outlets, so may be worth scouring to see if they have your sizes. I’ve been paying £250 for full sets but occasionally buy just a rear at £75
  13. Michelin Pilot Cup 2’s are Lotus’ favoured performance tyre and for good reason, I wouldn’t go to Pirelli. For just road use go to PS4S but for combined light track and road Cup 2’s are great
