  1. Has been a while to update the thread here and have done a lot. Will surely update ASAP. 

    After all works, I have some parts left if there is any interest DM me pls. 

    If not permitted, pls remove.

    I need to free up some space so I'm selling some Exige V6 parts, where applicable black metallic paint code C93. Pics for reference.

  2. In an effort to chase perfection I've made an error and broke the top screw in the Gear Lever that shifts into reverse. Drilled it out but need to alter as a screw doesn't hold anymore. Is this pin removable and to be replaced? Can I take it out to the top? I've seen both top and bottom of the pin is steel but in the middle it's like threaded steal. Any ideas? I've seen the following on  DeRoure but not 100% sure if it is the same and how to replace, part 39

    Update: My Lotus dealer is kind enough to have me drop in last minute tomorrow morning and see if they can fix this. I'm sure Jan has a way and I'll update on a fix (hopefully 🤔)... 

  3. All subjective indeed.... But let's agree to disagree as I do believe fair price has EVERYTHING to do business practices. This is how business models being made, can't offer high end product and a lot of labor for very cheap & low cost items and one shouldn't do it the other way around.. 

    If I go for a MC Donald's I know I pay €10 and you're in you're out, still you would expect decent service and decent food in its sort. Fair price related to business practices..

    In conclusion, not clouding the thread, the good thing is that with business initiatives/ handlings with George, Imran, Greg, Dave and many more we as Lotus enthusiasts have solid offers to choose from imho great value for money👍

  4. A fair return is subjective but imho 20% Ebitda should do but set aside from that sales prices are not the only & primary factor in ripping off customers because that is a known factor in advance usually and a free choice... You either buy it or you don't.

    Taking your money while items are not in stock for months and companies know about this, sell you a product that can't deliver on the promise, having terms & conditions Taylormade without mentioning this clearly, not assisting you correctly with aftersales/ warranty and things like that.. To me, that is where it can hurt the most... 

  5. Don't know, we'll see & it better be as it will be an investment 🤣.. I've seen many people having negative experiences on various exhaust systems, including yourself, so I aim for the best outcome and Jason is aware of that so let's see! I have some updates so it will be included in the write up 4 sure. 

    I don't have his Carbon so can't judge his quality on that tbh.

    In general I feel when people/ companies sell parts for cars like this they should be aware of car loving people and deliver a good reliable product with a reliable service at an acceptable amount. Nowadays, ripping off customers won't last that long.. I have had some great experience with Lotus part sellers and some horrible. The negative I never mention(ed) but the great ones were definitely o.a. GRP, deRoure and Devine being all very responsive and clear in and around expectations.

  6. Normally you could find this at places which keep moist. Also on boats but it has to do with the quality of paint (protection) at this age.. My Elise had it near the mirror on the door which is a commenly known area for that car, the car was already like 14 years or so. 

    You've bought the car private and I just bet the previous owner knows more... Not sure about your legal rights as per your location but I can't imagine this comes on a 5 year old car from 'nowadays' at that place.. If it's there now, and I hate to say it......, but I'll be unsure as to where it will be more next year around this time. Hope you figure it out.. 

    I just noticed the line around your blinker also has multiple bubbles. It really seems to me a bad paint job/ epoxy..

    Mine is the IPF 351HLB2, I bought it in Japan but you can find it in Amazon https://www.amazon.com/headlight-combined-351HLB2-Domestic-products/dp/B076RR5SKL

    Man, 200 just for one set?! Am I missing something?! 

    Anyone knows the specs of current lights in Exige S for interior and license plate? Type of light and size in mm and such.

    Wanna look for a great led replacement there also, white light but not too bright..
