  1. Never come across that, so my bad. Although I remember a chap on here declared he changed from summer to winter tyres (or winter to summer) and got royally screwed by insurance 🤷‍♂️
  2. In short 1. Nope 2. It's not a mod, it's an option, so don't need to declare. They'll get confused and think you cut the roof off and all sorts, knowing insurance companies... 3. Nope 😅
  3. Just another quick shout out to Toby at Shocksaway - only 10 miles away from B&C service/Back on Track. Great guy, friendly and professional. Focals sound a fair bit clearer but the sub is really what made the difference as everyone has said. Still feel like the sound is only coming from the front (obviously) so I'm going to add rear speakers at a later date to try and make a more complete sound. I kept the old OEM speakers just in case anyone needs a spare or has a project - free of charge, just cover the postage.
  4. I do. Glad I did, almost had someone reverse into the front of me, would have looked like I rear ended them etc. Plus a few funny clips 😎 I have a 512GW, cheap and cheerful, but the newer ones are better. All I did was plug it into the cigarette lighter between the seats - it's always powered, and doesn't drain the car battery. As for the wire, tuck it under the passenger seat, then side sill trim, then up the left side of the dash. There's a groove you can push it into, and it's the only noticeable part. Then up the A frame against the windscreen, again has a channel it h
  5. Surely anyone with a 3d printer could make them? Although the finish would be quite hard to get nicely done as it's so thin. Would most likely have to be made out of ABS too rather than PLA, just to be safe. I've seen PLA lose it's shape and go soft in cars left in the sun, albeit in Australia - but I once left my phone on the dash for an afternoon while working only to come back to find it wouldn't turn on and had an overheat error 😅
  6. I might finally be able to get more than 30 down and 5 up. Only £20 a month more than BT's best package in my area, yet it beams it from space!
  7. I find it odd seeing the 390s rear. 350 wing but 380/410 clam?
  8. My dad wrote off his car a few years back and was paid £4k above what the lease company were owed, so we pocketed that. No GAP. NFU Mutual gained a loyal customer since, and now insures all their cars and home.
  9. I don't understand why people want to sit below 70mph to save fuel. Firstly if I remember right, Mythbusters tested the drafting theory, you have to be within a foot or so for it to work, and the gains were pathetic vs the risk! Secondly, just drive and enjoy, when she says empty you fill her up, rinse and repeat. I know people who stress about mpg and it drives them mad when they "lose" mpg. You can get mid to high 20s effortlessly, or really try and get high 20s consistently - meaning probably 2mpg difference, which over 3000 miles (arguably 15 tanks and the average Lotus
  10. I took all mine off and painted them myself. Not perfect, but you'd barely notice - get a pro to paint them the proper colour and get a nice lacquer on it.
  11. Not much to say as I didn't see it in person but hey!
  12. Bloody flexi has a hole in it, MOT failure. On the plus side I get a nice new shiny Komotec pipe...
  13. We found it incredibly rare to get a "proper" sized garage - like the big double with a single door. 9 times out 10 it was a double garage with 2 small doors, if you even got one, and no other off road parking. In the end we ended up with a single garage, converted into a work shop and storage, but the front garden takes 5 cars with no hassle, 6 if they're smaller and you fancy trapping eachother in! I must say location is important, down south it's incredibly expensive for a shoebox of a house.
  14. As promised, more terrible photos. Seats are finished off nicely and the hardtop has gone back on for the next 6 months or so. Forgot how much more comfortable it makes the car feel! The car definitely needs a wash, hasn't had one in well over a month.
