  1. That’s surprising mate. The Evora drinks like a fish compared to our 308 GTi - uses almost double when pushed.
  2. I think most of it is already covered, my only advice is to echo the above comments suggesting a test drive. Id say that’ll likely make the decision for you. All the best and let us know how you go! Ben
  3. Sorry mate, just saw this. This is the link:
  4. 2010 launch edition came with red calipers 👍🏼
  5. Awesome effort mate. I must say my launch edition is (weirdly) still pretty much rattle free, but I love the cloth tape idea when I finally get around to the dash removal (last thing on the list)!
  6. Recently fitted the Suzuki Alto ones recommended on another forum. 26 bucks on ebay, super easy to fit.
  7. Checked my 2010 and both look ok. Might be something I’ll have to keep an eye on!

    Who said that?

    Also high praise:
  9. Interesting re the Esprit with the BMW V8. Didn’t know that.
  10. Was the Lotus quoted time possibly 0-100km/h?

    Follow this thread just to admire the front bumper 👌🏼
  12. Was about to ask the same question. Glad I found the answer.
  13. Can’t stop looking back at it every time I park 🥰
  14. I’d happily use mine as a daily (used an Elise as a daily for years), but I can’t stand to see it sitting out in the Aussie sun baking all day, so I only take it to work occasionally these days.
  15. This is great news 👍🏼
  16. Yep, as said above I’d bet it was your mud flaps that were scraping previously. When approaching a speed bump, the bottom edge of the front wheel arch (bumper side) is actually lower than the lowest point past the wheel, so if it was the actual underside scraping, it would have hit before the wheel went over not after. My car is quite low, it’s the mud flaps that always scrape, and they’re rubber, so no big deal.
  17. I’ve seen a few I believe. Did that white one that was smashed and the youtubers fixed have 20s all round? B for Build was it? I vaguely recall they fitted 8.5s on the back, sacrilege. 20s aren’t a huge step up from 19s up front so I’m sure it’s doable. Just don’t go skinnier on the rear!
  18. Yeah, I believe there were some quality issues with the earlier units. I actually had a set of them which were slightly faulty, they were replaced at no charge with the brand new eclipse units (been free postage to Australia). Great service and the replacements were much better built. Pity they’ve gone, but the GRP units are a great alternate and their service is also great.
  19. I think Transforged have shut up shop unfortunately mate. Yes, I’ve gradually been ticking off the mods / little things, the last one left is the dash / airbag covers! One day...
  20. Thanks mate. Yeah, with some minor mods the S1s still look pretty great. No one believes it’s 11 years old. BTW, they’re the Transforged Eclipse lights - bit bigger and more shapely than the GRP I believe. Another pic with more sun - as you can see I didn’t clean the car before pic so you can see my lovely daughters smudges on the side 😐
  21. Thanks mate, they’re Koya semi-forged. As far as I can tell, they’re only available in Australia. A few people have asked over the years, but no one has managed to get them shipped internationally as yet. Took me lots of measuring / experimentation to get the offsets / widths I wanted years ago! Haha.
  22. Big launch edition fan here 🥰
