  1. Oh I'm sure that worktopwill look quite battered in the following months. This is the whole garage. It's a nice size for working in an Elise.
  2. Got my garage sorted out finally after 2 years of it being a dumping ground. Also made a feature out of the new units. Happy man now I have a usable man cave.
  3. I think most are on here anyway Bibs so it goes both ways. Strangely there are a few that don't use forums and only facebook so I have been pointing them in this direction.
  4. Not long now Neal. Don't forget if you used Facebook to join up to the Elise Cup Owners Group on there. There are quite a few active members including myself where we discuss all sorts of Cup related topics.
  5. I think you should stick with what you have Scott. The original Cup kit is far better looking than the non existent 260 version. The larger diffuser and shaped wing sold it for me. My personal opinion is that the straight wing does not suit the curved back end of the Elise like it does the flatter Exige back end so looks like an aftermarket job so put me off liking it straight away. Your car is still quite rare as is my 220 Cup so the values are going to hold fairly well compared to a standard Elise. I'm going to stick with mine as I find that getting into this game of always having the best version is only going to cost you more than holding the potential future value in it. Just my 2p worth.
  6. Just finished oainting the walls, tiling the floor and generally sorting the place so it's a useable workspace. Its not a showroom but functional.
  7. Nice to meet you Dave. Loved the sound of the Exige. Had to be one of the best sounding cars there on track.
  8. Bachelor Pad? Not sure the missus would be happy with my car on a blind in the kitchen. Colour wouldn't match to start!!!
  9. I recognize that name!! Porsche bloke isn't happy.
  10. Hopefully this is a clue. I work in Composites.
  11. Here is a pic of my small collection. I only actually own one proper timepeice but the others are ones I love to wear regularly.
  12. That was the point of the Cup though. It's just a standard looking Elise with a big wing on it now.
  13. Mine is going away at the end of the month. I don't want to do it but its no fun driving in the rubbish weather.
  14. Bit disappointing that they have gone with the down rated aero kit and now got rid of the Sill Strakes. I have a 220 Cup and think the car looks far more aggressive with the old kit on.
  15. Found out my warranty rear wing has been delivered to Allon White after 4 months of waiting. Can now finally stop looking at the massive crack running along the front edge of it in my rear view mirror
  16. Haha. Yes it does make a difference as when I noticed it was coming up with Elise S and I said it was a Cup they changed the details and it went up by £20. If I had turned a blind eye would I be insured if I had and accident? Its a bit naughty really.
  17. I own an Elise 220 Cup and when I went to check, my car is included in all the other Elise S car that have ever been made. I looked on the V5 and its listed as an Elise S and not a 220 Cup. I checked with a few other owners of these cars and they are all the same so this website will never give me an accurate amount of Cups that are still on the road in the future.
  18. I would buy some of these if they were legal. Its just too much money to take a punt on at the mo. Hopefully they will come up with a solution.
  19. This is what you need. There are parts required. I'm considering having it done myself once the warranty has expired.
  20. My car is due for its 2nd year service next April and will probably only have covered 6k miles so i was wondering the same thing. I plan to take it to Allon White and on their website it says every 2 years. Seems a bit excessive for a belt although I do know it sees more action due to the running of the supercharger.I will be asking if it does really need to be changed if still in good condition. I do know that they can start to squeal when they are on the way out but that sometimes can be the tensioner not tensioned properly? Matt
  21. Someone got a good shot of mine from the roadside at the St Neots PH meet last month. Thiught I would share. ?
  22. I'm sure I could find out who built mine and try and get one to fit. Not sure it would really make the car anymore special. Its a Lotus, its special already.
  23. I have a 2016 Elise Cup and don't have a name plaque in mine. They must of given up with the idea as I'm sure the car is built by more than one person.
