  1. Just noticed I have a leak coming from the nose cone, from behind the pulley. Very slight, and initially though when I had very slight pooling around injectors it was from when the oil was changed. I cleaned it all up and have done a few hundred miles since and noticed it today on touching the nose cone and could see with a mirror it's definitely coming from behind the pulley. Is this just a seal replacement? Cheers


  2. I see there are two posts on this. I replied in the other one:

    The ribs/cross cuts will be a lot more pronounced now, compared to the older (worn) belt which will give the sound. Has it only done it since the new belt? Mine did this right away after the new belt, but if I hadn't of known may have been concerned. The sound may be a bit different on a Exige V6S, but it certainly sounds very similar. Notice it more when engine is winding down with window down, but I have a Komo-Tec filter so it shrieks anyway with the standard whine. My engines on 9k 


  3. It's all marketing and it works, and who could blame Lotus. Noble did the same with the M12 GTO to M400, basically the same cars, but no where near the price hikes Lotus have been trying. That's the beauty of the second hand car market for people that can't justify 100k+, 48k outright was enough for me, but over doubling that for new, nah happy with a 4 year old v6 banger! As long as everyone's happy who cares...

  5. Hi Kristof, I specifically told the dealer not to touch anything software related due to the map. I will try that anyway and thanks for that. I was concerned it maybe a spark plug gap or something not set right as these were changed?

    When I installed the EX370 kit  a year ago everything was absolutely perfect until this latest service, maybe it's a coincidence...


  6. Hi Dave,

    Interesting and good to hear! It's due a service around May and want to bring it to you, so was thinking of manifolds/cats at that time. Don't want to go too far with it and also want to keep the standard silencer. I bet the 460's epic, maybe best I don't as then I'll want that and then it's one big slippery slope from there ha ha.
