  1. Hi James, the PPF is clear but has a matte finish. I got mine from work as we use it on our race cars. Xpel make a matte PPF called Stealth. Readily available from what I’m aware. The Pods come off quite easily. 1 scrivet in the wheel arch and 2 bolts underneath the sill. Matt
  2. In my garage. I wouldn't of bought the car if I had to keep it on the driveway.
  3. Mine is tidy but no showroom. It’s just a nice workspace when I need it.
  4. Welcome to the club. First thing I did when I bought my Cup was cover all the black bits in matt PPF. The rubberised paint that Lotus use is absolutely rubbish. It’s an interior paint not meant to be used on the outside. I also used some rubber U channel around the edge of the rear pods. Just makes them bulletproof.
  5. From what I’ve been told there were 153 S/220 Cups made. The only difference was the stickers. This info was written on a certificate of provenance from Lotus.
  6. Hi Mike, Could I be added please?
  7. Apologies, I meant the 205 fronts. It says in this that the rear tyres on the 260 were 235/40/17. https://www.lotussilverstone.co.uk/elise-cup-260/
  8. Not from what I’ve been told. Matt Bentley Racing fits them to S2 Exige & Elise Cups. They said they are fine.
  9. There is someone who tried those sizes on AD08RS on a Cup on the Facebook group. He said it had a marked improvement on handling and grip. Its the same as the 260 Cup setup.
  10. I got mine from Seriously Lotus. You have the option to swap the TRD filter with a K&N version for a small cost.
  11. Hi Mikey, yes I did my own coil cover and the Honda badges. Small world. I’m not on the tools anymore so don’t get chance to make stuff nowadays. Have you still got the McLaren? If my memory serves me correctly that’s what you moved to last time I was on S2Ki?
  12. I’ve been quoted £660 for engine oil, brakes fluid, coolant, gearbox oil & charger belt. 4th year service.
  13. Hi Andy, cheers. Yes I know about the new pricing for servicing. It is a good deal. I was more wondering if the standard stuff they use is any good. I’m sure it is. I do prefer to use my own engine oil though.
  14. Hi, my 2016 Cup is due a major service this year. I need to have all fluids changed and normally supply my own engine oil and brake fluid. The gearbox oil and coolant needs doing too. Does anyone have any recommendations for these or do I just stick to the standard Lotus stuff? Cheers Matt
