    Driving on track in 38 Celsius

    My issue was more or less the same I guess. I was told my coolant reservoir was slowly leaking - causing higher water temps in stop go traffic and very poor a/c performance. Had I taken it to track I would have probably gone into limp mode as well. Lotus sent a replacement and all is good now.

    Lotus Exige Cup 430

    I never owned a 380 so I can't relate. However, there is definitely no pops and bangs that are noticeable. OEM exhaust switch as others have mentioned only works in normal mode (which is a shame, but better than nothing I guess).

    Lotus Exige Cup 430

    @AlphaZ Hi. The dealer needs to run the lotus software to "enable" the flap. A dealer visit is a must. Also, my dealer has confirmed to me that the exhaust button only works on normal mode. On sport and race mode, it is back to original ecu controlled even though the button is pressed. I'm collecting the car tomorrow and will see for myself.

    Lotus Exige Cup 430

    I haven't picked up my car yet after the 1000km service+another issue I had, but they installed my exhaust button. Once I get it sometime next week I'll report on the sound (pops) + if it works on all modes. For now they sent me this: VID-20180718-WA0034.mp4

    Lotus Exige Cup 430

    Interesting you say it doesn't work on all modes @Tex. I'm getting mine installed sometime next week so I'll update on my part. Question about the towing eye - I assume from the new placement of the plates on the 430 that you can't have it on while the plate is there. Is that correct?

    Driving on track in 38 Celsius

    Dont know why that's happening but hope u get it resolved soon! No check engine light? On a side note, I'm curious what water temps you are seeing on track. I will be taking my car on track in a few months and the ambient temperatures should be similar to yours now (33-38c)

    @Tex out of curiosity what was wrong with the a/c? I'm waiting to hear back from my dealer as my a/c keeps switching between cold and hot air.

    Thanks! I'm still undecided if I want to do genuine 380 cup ones or something slightly different. Will contact them if I decide to go that route.

    Some nice custom wings there! Where can I find endplates other than looking for 380 cup style ones or something similar.

    @stephenwhyte yes it is. After seeing it in the flesh on the 380 cup, it was hard to go for something else. Fell in love with it. Here it is parked next to a friend's 1M. Just before I dropped it off for window film+PPF

    @Tex Totally! Must behave for the time being - Gona be hard! Honestly I forgot to ask about the PPF. I just assumed the template was out already. I'll ask them and let you know. I'm gona go ahead with it even if it's going to be custom fitted.

    After a long wait, it's finally arrived. Picked her up today and took it to get window film + PPF installed.
  15. @mark248am We also got a lotus basher to test drive an Evora, now he has respect for the Evora. He particularly likes the handling and feedback of the car. Mind you this guy has a highly modified evo, track spec E36 M3 and exposed to many track cars. A test drive will go along way!
