  1. Does anyone have the RAL color code maching the yellow interior parts of the 400/410 as seen here?
  2. Hm. If it should be for looks only then maybe look at US market to find a wheel at a good price. And you would have to lower the front suspension because I am sure the geo will be slightly changed with 20" due to the changed tyre patch on the road and the steering will become slower. If you need a 19/20 wheel set for performance I might be able to help.
  3. Has anyone changed to Recaro Pole Position or Recaro Sportster CS in the Evora 400/410/430? My 410 has the really beautiful Sparcos but the seating position is (put in any favourable swearword) in my opinion. I am completly disconnected and outside. The Recaros in the older Evoras were just perfect. So I am definitely changing seats now ... any tipps or ideas?
  4. Thank you. Maybe I buy Recaro Sportster CS seats and combine them with the Lotus runners and console parts ...
  5. Will you sell your set if you can find better ones? I am looking for the Recaros (incl. heating), bad condition is okay, they will get a new trim to fit to my new Evora then ... Best regards Steffen
  6. I am looking for a set of complete Recaros (heated, incl. runners) for the Lotus Evora. Used condition and bad state of leather is acceptable.
  7. Right now all 3 basic Leitspeed colours are in stock. And I have a single set in a super quality black. For questions or quotations: [email protected]
  8. What about the 430 lightweight seats? I guess they will fit in to the 400 and they are low down and nice.
  9. Hi, - the IPS of the Evora S sometimes feels a bit slow when upshifting manually. Was this changed in the Evora 400? Is the action a little quicker and more direct? - Is it possible to select 1st gear actively when in manual mode in the Evora 400? The Evora S does not allow a manual downshift into 1st.
  10. Hi, at the moment I am thinking about selling my Evora S 2+2 and buying an Evora 400 2+2. I was very pleased with the Recaros of the S. Instead I do not feel comfy and seated well in the Sparcos of the 400 or 410. It is like I am seating on top of the the seat and not really inside. I am very tall and slender so seats are always a topic for me. Has anyone changed the cushions on the Sparcos of the 400 to get a deeper and more inside seating position? I´d like to keep the Sparcos to keep the car stock inside but just modified.
  11. No problem Bruss. Thank you. If you are interested in a set please send me an e-mail to [email protected] and give info that you come from TLF. I will have my demo wheels (DC finish) for sale too.
  12. By the way some extra news: As the discussion with Lotus dealers as resellers was not satisfying we are thinking Leitspeed may sell the wheels only directly to customers - no dealers involved. Maybe the way like most Lotus tuning is sold world wide. So there will be a new attractive pricing without the dealer margin soon and also a changed online shop form on the website. At the moment shipping inside EU and world wide at no or low cost is checked too.
  13. Great stuff. I think I could design a Leitspeed CAST (clean-air-see-through, hyperinvisible wheel replacement) with 0,0 kg weight … incl. TÜV testing and license maybe at 4.500.- EURO? I could offer a group buy with - say 10% off? And: Don´t forget about the brakes … they are heavy too 🙂
  14. Chapman was right to built parts to last 1 race. Why should the part last longer? Today the Reglement asks longer lasting times of components as you know. In terms of stability and safety street use parts are normally tested by a third party testing centre to ensure enaugh safety margin even when abused. The Leitspeeds are German TÜV tested and therefore fully road legal in Germany. This is the highest quality standard (a s the company producing must be inspected by TÜV too, ISO9000 is not enaugh any more) and roughly comparable to JWL standards. I can not think of any other Lotus aftermarket wheel which has such a status. So the Leitspeeds are not of holed cheese - it is little more art to it. You can trust them 🙂
  15. A supercar (what ever) is a good idea to get brand awareness … a very important first step. But then I´d like to see more than a small GT4 for China. It will be important that they show their product ideas to challenge the sports car market early.
