  1. I had an S2 NA with stage 2 exhaust, then a S260 S with Gt3 tubular exhaust, and now the v6 with tubular exhaust, by far the loudest and the better note, if there is one thing you won't regret from the s2 Exige, it is the 4 cylinder note, whatever the exhasut, the v6 just sound extremely good. I enjoyed driving my S2s, but the v6 sound with the tubular is just insane.
  2. To maybe add something, I was from a 260 S, and moved to a normal V6s, which I would have kept anyway, but with the v6 CUP I have for sure no desire to go back, so myabe in your case a 410 would check more boxes anyway. Bit it is down but what you like in a Lotus anyway ...
  3. Not exactly the best place to ask if anyone has regrets, and no, I have none 😂 I have seen your post on seloc, have you driven a v6 ?

    I do share that feeling, I have always hated the pirelli, and that's on Lotus/Jag and others... Yes they are much better brand new, but after that, such a bad feeling you get from these ...
  5. It is not due to the limited factor that the car is not much driven by journalist, but because Lotus does not give it to the journalist .. As ligth the car is, and as powerful the engine is, it does not have the grip or composure of a Porsche, pretty sure it would be faster than a Gt4 in the hand of the same pro driver.
  6. They are legit, you can talk directly to Jason Fung on facebook, he is very reactive. I am sure he can tell you directly how muh and for what.
  7. It looks like the power of your car is following the general markets inflation !
  8. Yes and no, yes these are only visual changes, but it will carry a premium ... you can replicate, does not mean this edition is worth the same as standard, or the standard modified would be the same as the special edition, and yes people sometime pay extra for nothing more, even sometime just for some gold painted wheels and a track layout embroidered on a seat, LF1 editions ... These are the only special editions ever based on the V6 cup in all forms (360 cup being just a mix with the 350 stuff) , so yes it should still be at the top I suppose.
  9. That brake light switch is 20 quid on eliseparts, not sure why it is so expensive on seriouslylotus, it was not this much when I bought one 2 years ago, I think ..
  10. Sytner in warwick indeed, around the corner for me, I could be wrong by the way, but it caught my eye as it is vaguely similar to my car visually, I could confirm tonight as I will drive around the shop again !!
  11. I think I have seen it yesterday, I saw a pewter grey CUP like car in the sytner showroom, and I can not see any for sale in their current online catalogue, so might be yours.

    Lotus Emira

    Yes, I only just saw the last posts, everything turning into an Emira topic anyway. And Bibs, believe what you want.

    Lotus Emira

    I hardly see where a Cup version would be much better, not much you can do for the weight, exept expensive carbon parts ... Engine wise, well Lotus stopped at 430 with the v6 in its current form, the 4 pot go get more maybe, but 500, that is a big step ... it will be sharper ok, but they won't have the budget Porsche has for a gt4 or gt3 version ...
  14. I am sure there is, only telling you to avoid one of them 😄 you might find more answers from the V6 group on facebook, many people tried a few different batteries there
  15. So I had thesame question 2 years ago, at the time I went for the antigravity, which was the one sold by the SSC partner. I would not recommend them, the one they recommended was probably too small, 420 amp I think, and then the ghost drain was crazy, the batery could not hold the charge for more than 2 days without bring unplugged. I am more annoyed by the service than the battery, what they promised when selling the battery was just not there, and I had nothing from their service after one year, when the battery would not hold the power for more than a day.... oh yes, and at that point they told me to buy the expensive Ctek charger because the one they sold me a year before was not powerful enough on the initial charging ? what ? at my cost ? Anyway, I guess the minimum required would be 600 ? I have the liteblox now, it is just reall good, and the fact that you can control it from your plhone is really good. These are the ones I have tried.
  16. Interesting, who is doing the job ?

    Nissan GTR

    Of course most of the people here will praise for the Lotus, we are here generaly for the same reasons. At the end of the day they such different cars, diffferent end of the spectrum, it should not be too hard to decide, just depends on what makes you connect more to a car, the use of it you want, the GTR is an engineering masterpiece, but where you sit a bit more as a spectator, but if this is what you are looking for, it is fine. I do not really get the comment about the money, because a 40k GTR will give you almost as much compare to a 80k GTR ? Same as the Exige market I believe. But if there is one point where there is no discussion, it is the maintening cost, I know people with GTRs, they are just way more expensive to maintain, and if they go wrong, it starts to get exponential, again this is not really a reason not to buy one, just a factor.
  18. Mine has some mod yes, but you must be talking about the one which had loads of mods and got sold for 52k ? ...
  19. I use mine mainly for the b road stuff, the 2 ways can do more than enough there, when you change the bump setting to the sofest setting, it is very soft ... but yes, a v6 cup should give you more drama in these conditions compare to a gt4 which would be very composed. Is that the car with the komotec kit ? And yes they should go up, they have sticking around the same price for a while, and the next Lotus probably won't be such a raw car, so the cup stuff is a good investment (and anyway, more enjoyable to drive than a standard v6)
  20. Is that the minimum quantity of WD40 to run a Mclaren for a week ? 😂
  21. Not an expert,but I think not as often as the S2, but they sometime crack on the v6 ? Either the tow link or something else next to it
  22. I had a look and could not locate this one, can you show where it is coming from maybe ?? The source of it might help.
  23. Same here, 2.5m wide, I get the car very close to the left side, and I can actually get in and out without any protection on the driver side, I mean I should but I never had a problem, also with 2.5m you can still walk next to the car or you know move stuff aside it ... so go for it !
