    As a matter of fact, yes they do. It's nothing unbearable though. I mostly use my car on track so it doesn't bother me.

    @Tex I also was happy with my OEM pads and wanted something similar. I replaced my OEM pads with PFC 08 - quite pleased with them.
  3. Happened to me once on my 430. Luckily it happened while I was collecting the car from the dealer during a service visit. I don't know what they did though. Collected it the next day and it was fine. Sorry not very helpful.

    Approx 4500kms...mostly track mileage!
  5. Couple of shots from an open track day a couple's of days ago
  6. For me it turned out to be a coolant reservoir+cap leak and therefore showing me the spanner symbol. I took it to lotus and they identified the problem right away from the spanner and identified the problem. They ordered a new reservoir+cap and all is good now.

    18 months ownership and over 4500kms of which 90% are track driven and I didn't notice any unusual wear on mine. Seems to be holding up just fine so far. Rear fender plastic extension did come off during the first 500kms though.
  8. I was wondering if mileage would show but the last image you posted shows it on the bottom of the screen @alias23 I assume if you revert back to the stock dash mileage would carry over as well? I'm probably in as well!
  9. @Nightfire Great! Thanks. One last thing, did you ask them to mount it like that or is that the updated procedure from lotus?
  10. @alias23 you can really tell the quality is rubbish! As you mentioned, the cap is indeed coming from the seal/cap. @Nightfire was that done at the dealer? I'm thinking of asking them to do the same once my the part arrives. @vd9 thanks! I'm more bothered about possibly missing an upcoming track day than anything else.
  11. So a little update on this: Went on track last night and had the same 3 shift lights come on at 4k rpm. Stopped car started again and noticed the spanner come up on the dash and disappeared within 30 seconds. Everytime I stopped and start the car, the spanner would stay on for 30 seconds. Went out again and even though the shift lights were not coming up anymore, the power delivery wasn't as smooth felt like I had at least 100bhp less. Didn't have a code reader on me at the time so I left early. Went to the dealer this morning to check the spanner light issue and of course it didn't come up. Thankfully when he checked the code something did come up (attached image). I'm not sure if both are to the same issue or if I have 2 issues (seems like 2 from the codes). He says it's all related to the coolant reservoir leak. Apparently the coolant leak is causing the car to go into some limp/safety mode thus the feeling of 100bhp less. Waiting on lotus UK to see when they will send the new reservoir+cap and additional input. Funny thing is I've already had mined changed under warranty within my first 700kms. I don't think it was the new improved unit though. Anyone with a 410/430 check with your local for the recall (someone mentioned this in another thread recently)
  12. @Harald32 Thanks! Just wanted to confirm
  13. Can someone identify for me on the parts diagram which number I'm supposed to mill to achieve more camber in the front? Thanks!
