  1. Ciao PJ, Happy to hear you obtained good results with the headlamp restoration. You will need to remove the wheels to get full clearance and work properly.
  2. Usually to change the bulb you access from the wheel arches. When you will get there in the back of the headlights you can remove them as well. Most probably the best way if you need to repair the clear coat is to remove the headlights. This will secure the best result.
  3. In the kit there were 2 metal supports that needed to be bolted to the wheels hubs. This supports will be connected with the fresh air feeding pipe. I got this kit complete of all the parts including bolts and air feeding pipes from Italy and there were included fitting instructions with pictures step by step. Very easy to install.
  4. Only in the front. Honestly I never felt the need on the rear ones.
  5. I installed this kit and after 2 years is working fine.
  6. Thanks @CRM82 and @Maxi_z for the feedback. At the end I ordered a set of Dunlop 03G in 215 and 295 that I will install on the new 410 Sport. Theorically they should fit well. I am curios to see how they perform.
  7. Ciao @CRM82 having fitted the 295 at the back did you found any point inside the wheels arch touching or is just fine? Did you added a spacer?
  8. Nothing honestly but is depending on what you do mostly with the car. If you use it on the road and some times on track they are fine but if you use the car most of the times on track is better to use other tires like Trofeo r, Dunlop, Hankook.....
  9. I tried to contact them several times by mail but without reply from their side. Even by phone is impossible to reach them. Very strange...
  10. Hi guys, When looking for tires 215 and 285 as per original sizes for 410 and 430 i saw that the choice is limited at the moment in respect of the smaller sizes of the V6 ( 205 and 265 ). Anyone fitted 225 at front and 295 at the back? Thanks in advance.
  11. You are welcome @Martrack and soon that I have news and feedback I will comment here.
  12. I have the same dilemma and problem in looking at very high performance semi-slicks tires for the 410 Sport. I have to say as well that I don't care to much about the road performance but I like to obtain the best on track. First of all I hope they will develop the Trofeo r in 215 and 285 to fit exactly our sizes as per your info. I found the Dunlop 03G available that they told me should be close to the Trofeo r in terms of performances. They informed me the best tires you can have are the Hankook z221 but I tried a lot and I couldn't find them available. All the other options like Toyo, Avon, Yokohama should stay between the ones listed above and the CUP2 in terms of performances. This is what I found out up to now. For sure I will try the Dunlop 03G and give my feedback. I hope someone else have done a research and can share his experience.
  13. But really there is people complaining if an high performance car revs when you start it up? Is better to buy a Tesla at this point
  14. Following the theory that this Exige range will be the last as a pure track beast i traded in as well my V6 S for a new Exige 410 Sport. The car will arrive in December/January. I am very excited to test the new car. Will be 2 very long months....
  15. Any news on the Exige 410 Sport lap time?
