  1. Looks like Greg's Racing Parts also do some:
  2. Another install with the infamous ALIAS23 side sills! Went for an aggressive look by max'ing out the extension/protrusion from the car body. Exige now looks "squatier" with a wide stance - just how I wanted Cheers to Imran for making an awesome product, I may be back for some more/others
  3. Cheers Woots - I hear you though I don't have the tools (ramp/jack nor rivnut tool) and am a tad nervous drilling into the body/avoiding tubes which I think run where the holes are to be drilled.
  4. Fab cheers for that Mattmahope! I've pinged BoT a note/quote and waiting to hear back from them. Ta.
  5. Cheers alias23! It's a set of your infamous side skirts that I'm looking at getting installed
  6. Hi all, anyone able to recommend an experienced Lotus bodyshop in Surrey? I'm based in a small town (Frimley, in Surrey) and looking to find a bodyshop to fit side skirts to my Exige Sport 350. Cheers in advance!
  7. Incase anyone is interested, I managed to find a way to wire in my own cables for the rear speakers without having to remove the rear plastic cover/panel behind the seats. Details in my reply to this topic:
  8. Hi there, was the same for me in that I couldn't see rear speaker wires behind the plastic speaker covers. When I spoke to my local Lotus garage in Bell & Colvill, they advised that the stereo loom used is a "standard" one that includes wires for the rear speakers; and that the wires are probably wrapped/tucked up behind the rear plastic panel (behind the seats). However, getting to them would involve removing the said rear plastic panel, which would mean removing the passenger seat and seat belts first, so not the most straightforward of jobs. So, I decided to wire my own cables from the
  9. Hi all, my Exige didn't come with rear speakers (just a couple of plastic covers). Having spoken with the chaps at B&C, they reckon the wires are installed and it's just a matter of removing the plastic panel behind the seats to locate them. Anyone had a go at this / able to share instructions / pics pls?
  10. Cheers @Five50 Looks like the screws in my Exige must've tightened a bit too much when they were originally installed. I also tried using an adjustable wrench/spanner with a screw bit though they wouldn't budge! Will try again, ta!
  11. 👍 Out of interest, what tool did you use to remove the screws? Something like a low profile ratchet screwdriver? I had a quick go at mine the other day though the screws are stuck stiff/wouldn't budge! I'm worried that I may damage the screw head if I force it...
  12. Hi fellow Lotus enthusiastics! Just a note to introduce myself - a soon to be owner of a Exige Sport 350 (please see pic attached). I've been a fan of the Elise since the early days and the Exige that was released soon after and now 20 years on, I've finally bitten the bullet and decided to buy one! Am taking delivery next week and been spending lots of time on this forum (thanks folks for all the helpful info!) in prep for my new car. There's so much to consider - from detailing with ceramic cost (Gtechniq seems the way to go), PPF (Xpel), indoor covers (thanks Bibs!) through to ins
