  1. Hi looking to get a new battery at the moment - does this battery fit in the standard OEM bracket? Any problems with starting ? Many thanks
  2. Yeah I agree! I just couldn't find anywhere that could match exactly. Going to try and find somewhere that can. The only way seems to be to paint rather than powdercoat which I'm not keen on. Silver wheels look great on your car.
  3. Thanks Martin - I'm an idiot and remembered you sent me a link in a pm previously! Thanks again though - will get these sorted Imran do I just buy off seloc classifieds? Have you got some skirts in the locker just for me???
  4. It's a difficult one - and I seemingly change my mind about whether to swap my V6 for a 380 on a weekly basis. I think if the right 380 came up I would be sorely tempted as I think the 380 is the best Exige ever made - it looks fantastic. For me for a £20k premium over mine (which is 50% increase would have to have) - full carbon pack - nitrons I still struggle a little with the price of them compared to mine for what is fundamentally the same car. I think if you want to upgrade to EXACTLY 380 spec with the Lotus parts you are close to £15k. If your car is worth £40k you are near 380 pricing anyways, and I think a £5k difference to get the upgraded shifter is probably worth it. If you want the look and are happy to substitute with Eltech / elise parts rather than Lotus pieces you can make a massive saving on a 380 - but you've still got a V6. You obviously won't get much more for the parts being on your car when you come to sell so you would need to remove them, whereas the 380 is a 380. The added bonus of upgrading your V6 is you can do it in stages - as opposed to putting down another £20k / finance in the here and now. Lastly the other slight fly in the ointment of the 380 is the lower rev limit - I think that would slightly frustrate me. Ask me again next week and no doubt i'll be looking for a 380 on pistonheads;)
  5. Just received my plaque - what a beautiful thing! Thanks Imran looks amazing in the engine bay Top job
  6. Martin they look great - Imran nice job again Martin where did you get the non carbon rear spats from? Lotus don't seem to sell them Imran are the side sills totally flat or is there an element of contouring? The lotus ones seem to have an element of contouring ie not totally flat Thanks
  7. So when I went to pick up the car I was horrified. I was tempted to leave the car then and tell them to just take them back to black. I didn't want to drive it I thought the silver was that bad. Have to say it's really growing on me now. Especially in the sun and when the car is clean. The problem is when the car is dirty and there is no shine or ouster from the pain you have a very visual indicator that the white is actually quite creamy and it looks a bit odd. Anyways welcome thoughts! Rofl yours looks awesome! DSC_0235 by mikeharper2, on Flickr
  8. Looks lovely! Really like it. Staying yellow callipers?
  9. Annoyingly I've wimped out of red. The alloy refurb places I've been could only offer around 10 pantones to match to - all of them not quite right to match the centre stripe. The pantone book colour also looks nothing like some of the wheels they have produced so its a total lottery. I've gone silver instead. I await your justified derision. Rofl stay strong and go gold.
  10. Get the soft top conversion. Problem solved. Seriously though I'm a 6"2 powerfully built company director and fit fine
  11. Gold for the win I've moved mine forward so will be done similar time to yours
  12. I have the 2bular valved road exhaust and am contemplating getting the EPK manifolds - how loud is it with your manifolds and your road exhaust? The std exhaust is perfect really but can't help wanting a bit more popping and banging and the performance gains - but worry it might be a bit much. When you have it in touring I assume it's manageable? Thanks in advance!
  13. Has anyone replaced for a different type of filter than the hks. I knew hks wasn’t the best but after seeing imrans intake pipe it’s scared me a bit! Tempted to fit this which I think will work as has the same 80mm diameter
  14. Eep. I think I might be changing the filter on mine very shortly..... I have the ssc filter with HKS medium at the moment Very interested in your filter when you perfect it - looking forward to seeing how it develops Mike
  15. Hi Imran Your comments about the SSC intake - is that more aimed at the filter medium - IE HKS than the intake design? And is that based on experience or the general feeling that HKS filters aren't the best for filtration? Thanks Mike
  16. That's great many thanks for the info
  17. Thanks What Camber could you run with them shaved back?
  18. Has anyone found any of the motorsport arms? Or could suggest a suitable place to get std machined? Many thanks
  19. Thank you to everyone persevering with the carbon pieces for the benefit of others and Rofl hope you get sorted soon Has anyone bought and fitted a 380 Carbon replica spoiler / lip that they are happy with?
  20. Where can you buy the Eltech parts? I can't seem to find them anywhere online? Are they only sold on ebay?
  21. Thanks both for your view on the LSD. I'm going to prioritise that when funds allow and modify my 350 rather than get a 380. I love the 380 - but my man maths says I can get there (minus the gear linkage) for a lot less money, and I can always sell the bits I add at a later date and recoup some of the outlay. Thanks again
  22. These two previous comments nail it for me. I think it's madness that the car doesn't come with a diff - as I said above I just want it to be a bit more 3 dimensional at low speeds. Arun - presume you have adjustable suspension - did you find any increase in understeer? Thanks Mike
  23. Sorry for drift but think it's relevant to the LSD I don't want the car to 'just' drift - just want it to be a bit more 3 dimensional and have the flexibility to transition into oversteer at lower speeds. Just not sure I can achieve it with an LSD on stock suspension. I agree though that the exige wasn't designed to be an oversteer monster
