  1. Hi

    I don't know if your problem has been fixed. Just to say a supposed failure can hide something else. Here is my story :

    exige 380 2017, bought at 2500 km in a trustfull Lotus dealer in 2018. No problem mentionned, and no problem for a few hundreds of kilometers.

    And then, random rev limiter at 3.8/4 k rpm started to make me crazy... The car ran well at full pace on track, but sometimes random rev lights appeared (and rev limiter intervened !) on road during one acceleration, and not the next one...  - like you

    Sometimes the MIL light was on, sometimes not... One time, I captured the log fault : P0366 Camshaft Position Sensor B Circuit Range/Performance Bank 1 - sounds similar to your case

    Restarting the engine solved the problem eacht time, until next ghost rev limiter...

    I made the brake switch changed by a local dealer, but no improvement. I brought back the car to my original dealer. It was a nightmare to diagnose (he said to me 12 hr of work had been necessary, under warranty but Lotus did not pay all of them) and he found the root cause : a bent pin in a connector of the harness... 🙄

    Just a piece of information : their product list looks awesome (and I think they are the provider for Komotec carbon hard-tops)

    Their facebook page disappeared few months ago, they were posting regularly. I had a chat with them about hard-tops, price was nice but I had worries about shipment and import taxes - for France - (and real quality). I don't know if it is a bad sign, but be aware

    Indeed, it seems to be urgent to build or find iron rotors... A lot cheaper, at least in the USA : https://soulpp.com/product/mclaren-600lt-720s-girodisc-iron-rotor-conversion/

     

    it looks like the 540C is a "bargain" now to enter the McLaren world. Not as fast and exclusive as a 600LT, but it must be fantastic with more reasonable running costs (and even more for the ones ready to remap the engine). It must be tempting if you live in Great Britain and have a similar budget to the Lotus Exige 410/430 ones.

  4. I choosed to have a Lotus baffled sump fitted on my sport 380 when I bought it, before I knew the rubber gate flaps had to be serviced... But last time I saw my dealer he was not categoric on the frequent servicing interval considering my car is not intensively used (only one or two trackdays per year).

  5. You can get the carbon rear diffuser finisher here :

    The web site "the-chariot" seems to provide high quality products 🤨 but I agree all prices look to be bargains (however I don't know about shipping costs and export taxes, and VAT ? )

  6. No I forgot to get interior shots. You can see some on the dealer's website :

    https://www.lotus-verhiest.com/fr/new-cars/new-stock/lotus-exige-sport-410-2

    These cars are really good looking, even if it is just a little bit of paint, stickers and new seats colors. But I don't like the plastic diffuser finisher on 410, it looks a little bit cheap compared to the carbon one on my 380 (but mine lacks the chargecooler 😭 )

     

    I don't understand the price of this special edition when I see the price of standard sport 410. Do Lotus have decided to sell them at a lower price than the standard sport 410 ? Or is it missing a few equipments and details (3 ways Nitron are there)  ? the painted wing is GRP, so cheaper than carbon ?

    Is it because the dealer is stuck with this old sport 410 which was more expensive last year ? https://www.lotus-verhiest.com/fr/new-cars/new-stock/lotus-exige-sport-410
