  1. I can't see any options for the Kef Stereo system. The inside image does not have the Aluminium Key Speakers so is this an option or is it already loaded in just not on the online image?
  2. Booked for the 30th at Bell and Colville. Thanks Jamie.
  3. Thank you for the update will be keep an eye on my email and junk box next week.
  4. For the underbody us this product https://www.lanoguard.co.uk it made from a wax/oil product that come from wool. Its not permanent so will need to be re applied every 12/18months. But its a thin coating i believe so won't mess with the air flow under your car. Easy to rinse clean too. for the fibre glass i recommend a ceramic coating you can then maintain that coating with snow seal. ValetPRO will release our ceramic next year so that might not be soon enough. If you want more help get in-touch. Alway happy to help another TLF member.
  5. The Green Holden looks like it packs a punch. what engine is running in that?
  6. Great colour pack on the exige. the s1 111s is looking very original .
  7. Great choice. Is that a filter or did the camera have a melt down on automotive perfection!
  8. If your happy to feedback on the products good or bad that would be great. Feedback is useful.
  9. Mine would be a camper van currently being a t25. But there are a lot of cars i would like to have. Like the full generation of lotus cars starting from the elite. Driving them back to back would be really interesting. It is the sort of thing where i wish i was a car car journalist. Not sure i have the writing skills.
  10. I heard a rumour that Lotus was looking to increase the Toque of the V6 engine. I guess if they have successfully done this then the acceleration speed would be quicker in the Emira. Or is the real issue the gear box handling the extra torque or Hp. Also I believe Swindon upgrades can take the V6 to 600BHP. I think ES Motorsport have done this. Not sure if they have changed the gear box as well.
  11. What does this mean? "*Subject to balance of performance" statement on the linked article based on some performance spec of the Emira GT3 https://www.thelotusforums.com/latest-news/motorsport-news/lotus-motorsport-division-expands-global-commitment-with-emira-gt4-race-car/ Is this like saying no comment? ie Keeping hp quite until its released? I am pleased to see it has the V6 engine.
  12. Speak to Yvo at Elise shop he will get you the right product https://www.elise-shop.com he has alway given me good help and good quality product. Sorry this does not directly answer your question Or es motorsport. They sell product too. But they sort cars out for the track so would need a robust head gasket for there customers.
  13. Could it be something simple like immobiliser . Key battery flat ? if not i would talk to a dealer.
  14. This is not going to too helpful. I recently had my alternator replaced when replacing the water pump. So this is a part that wares. i could do a voltage test in the way you described this evening so you can compare results. Would that be helpful? undoing corroded bolts. Not an expert but if you watch George kerelis youtube channel working on his esprit he uses a product like wd40. If that fails a heat gun is then used. I get the impression wd40 can take some time to take effect. let me know if you want a voltage comparison check. Mine is an s2 k series enginr.
  15. I cant find anything on line. i think it looks like a k series rover engine with a fancy top. But in truth i have no idea. What horse power is it getting?
  16. I don't know. I like the s2 design but it does seem the later esprit would be better for me being 6ft. I guess an SE or even a GT3 would fit the bill. But ive not even sat in an esprit so have no idea if i would like it more than an evora. Oh, thanks for the offer. I will get in contact via the private messages tomorrow.
  17. I might be able to help. we do a polish that would restore the headlamp. We have also created a ceramic coat not yet released to market. I suspect our coating will give you a permanent resto. here is a video we did for basic resto. if you live in the south east you could pop down and we could do the head lamp for you. Does this help?
  18. On my elise I used polish to bring the logo back in the Steering wheel.https://www.valetpro.global/Exterior-Products/Paint-Preparation/1980-/Advanced-Compound Here is a photo of my steering wheel, sorry I don't have a before. The alcantara fabric was also flat in places and blackened, I sorted this out with ValetPRO advanced interior cleaner. The polish might work on the gear knob to.
  19. Yep not though of that as an alternative. I think I might have some kicking around.
  20. In my Elise the floor matts keep lifting due to the locking nuts base being detached from the floor. I used superglue in the past which works for a bit but then fails again. Anyone know the best glue to use to keep the matt locking nut base in place?
  21. Looks in great condition. Like the colour too.
  22. Well did the 500mile drive yesterday and it was a great drive. Not the best roads as most were motorway. Did get a good mix of A and B roads once off the motorway. Which is where the Elise is best. On the motorway I got a Thumb up for a Ford ST driver. Good to see other car marque taking an interest. It one thing I do love about the Lotus cars both the Evora and the Elise i've owned seem to make people smile.
  23. The Emira road show at the dealers. Is this just a visual viewing or do we get to test drive the cars? In both V6 and i4 engine versions?
  24. Just been on Bookaclassic and they seem to only be offering the Esprit in chauffeur service form. Only an Elan M100 for a self drive. But the idea of hire seems good I have found one website http://www.lotus4hire.co.uk/home . I feedback should I try it out. Gvy - thank you for the detail of all the esprit and some of the differences between them.
