  1. Both sides is new on me - but yes, I would assume the same thing However, all was forgiven today. Sunny, warm-is tyres, sun reflecting off the beautiful curves, playing with an RS6 on the A43 - nothing better - I've fallen deeply in love!
  2. I am on the 3 ways I wish mine would disappear, it goes strongly against my fixer personality... (I bet you don't see 'foibles' used in many other car forums - yet another nice part of Lotus ownership) Having thought about it, mine may do this - I will have a listen on the way home (pending snow)
  3. Nothing on the vibration, even at post-run in speeds. I think it's likely a wheel balance, mine feels very stable
  4. Chris - do you have a 'clunk' on the rear suspension when going over a small pothole? Apparently all 410s do it, but I have it and a demonstrator at Silverstone has it, but I cannot find anyone else and I am becoming concerned, I am being fobbed off!
  5. Thanks Thomas - I will have a nosey and a chat with Silverstone
  6. My 410 has a clunk (almost a clonk) from the rear nearside suspension. I mentioned it when she went in for her run in service at Silverstone and they too heard it. The stripped the suspension and checked it over and even tried the damper from their demo (apparently the dampers are 'handed') and it still made the noise. Likewise, the demo made the same noise when they took that out. Does anyone else have the clonk? It's quite subtle and only really noticeable at slow speeds, you cannot feel anything in the wheel or even in the seat, but it's there. If you do, what have you been told / discovered / done to fix it. Or is it really a case of TADTS?
  7. It requires antifreeze, just like normal engine coolant
  8. Lee We've never met, but the strength that you, your wife and girls are showing is phenomenal. I wish you all the best.
  9. It may be old news to you guys, but everything is just awesome with a Lotus. I took mine back in for its run in service, which also had a slight knock on the rear nearside suspension. 'No problem' was the answer, did the service, came out with me a listened to the knock, checked all the suspension, changed the dampers with a demo. Still no luck but took their 410 out - same noise. All in all, spent an age making me happy - GREAT service from Lotus Silverstone. The best bit is - now it's run in and all good
  10. I tried Waze, but I found the TomTom app better in terms of the speed camera info.
  11. ETA You can turn the back wheels by hand and it magics its way out of the garage - just another advantage of Mr Chapman's genius
  12. Thank you all It's in for a service next week, so I will have them tweak the front panel A drive then clean I think
  13. I got the Bose sound deadening Bluetooth headphones, now perfect! On a more sensible note, I am with Dan, when cruising along it would be pleasant to have something to listen to
  14. Didn’t think of that - I am off
