  1. Yes, Fire Red interior, silver stitching to match silver wheels, silver aero uprights, silver decals. Didn't bother with calipers. I specifically wanted a 250 cup car in an unusual colour, and went to the factory to look at lots of cars that had come off the line. There was no Fire Red, so I was taking a bit of a punt in ordering it and paying a premium for the colour. I also wanted everything colour coded, that is no black engine cover, transom, service covers etc. As with many Lotus colours, when the sun is on it, it sparkles, but a dull day doesnt do it any favours. My short list included Liquid Yellow and Vivid Green, and I just felt there were lots in those colours. I have since seen an Exige in Motorsport (I think) Green, and at that point had the odd second thought about the Fire Red. I love it now
  2. Only one in Fire Red, as far as I know. As with many colours, a dull day doesn't do it any favours. In production On collection After Paint Protection Film Recent trip to Reims
  3. I found the B&G kit with a 20mm adapter did set the wheel noticeably closer. The old style "snap off", though a bit clumsy, with same adapter would be better
  4. No ppf whatsoever as standard, not even in front of the rear arches. Cup car = Less is more That was the intention. I nearly went for gold wheels and uprights but felt that was a bit too bling
  5. Maybe, but don't even try to pass
  6. I did this work on my Exige when it was just a few weeks old... Scary Just find someone with an Elise and measure this, but it is not critical within a mm or two Measure 6 times, cut once The most important point imo is to cover the whole of the interior before starting to cut the fibreglass.
  7. Ooops I never gave it a thought that the Cup 250 may have a different ground clearance to my (now) sadly sold Exige S2. Got any figures for the S2 for comparison? Nearly there
  8. Have you lifted the centre console yet ? I only ask as I am considering filling in the sides of the open gear gate (not the top, I like that) with a body colour panel.
  9. I'm sure they will hide behind the "errors and omissions excepted" phrase PPF on rear arches gone the same way as sun visors, tpms, engine cover, USB port only on near side, etc It really is taking the proverbial on a £50k+ car Peapod, I don't believe any cars come from the factory with ppf on front clam. Its not an option, but even Scott Walker thinks it is essentlal
  10. I am aware of how vulnerable both the front clam and ahead of the rear wheels is. Collecting from the factory, do I take some extra thick cling film and gaffa tape with me and apply on Potash Lane.
  11. Don't know a date yet, but with no overlap, I am Lotus-less now for the first time in over 33 years By the way, is it true that there are no sun visors ? However small they were on the S2 Exige, they were handy at times with the roof off And no PPF ahead of he rear wheels ?

  13. Noooo.... Should be all colour coordinated except aero parts Says he who can't decide upon a colour
