  1. Well chaps, i think the 410 wing is the perfect incarnation of an exige wing. The 430 is a bit too straight and the 350/V6S is only IMO a thing of beauty on the car when painted to match the car; at which time it comes into its own as the next best thing.
  2. My 8-9 year old daughter was very happy to be in the back of my 911... but at 10 she was starting to resist. She is a normal height kid.
  3. Did you lower the 430 G or did it just 'settle' over time and miles?
  4. Both really good-looking cars. The V6S appears to sit lower on its suspension than the 430. Is that a camera angle thing or is it so?! i see you reversed the top pic
  5. How on earth do you get such even exposure @GFWilliams? Superb!
  6. it is different on different screens for me too. i love it.
  7. That’s lovely. Is it cyan blue?
  8. That Reg. plate X6 CUP looks familiar. Sure I’ve seen it before.
  9. Hi @Kristof Thys yes that may be the case. I also posted on the FB group for "Lotus Owners and Enthusiasts" and had lots of inputs, much of which suggested the same. i.e. pipes are super cold in use. car sits for 1 hour in seering sun and lots of condensations gathers on pipes etc. on restart system calls for 100% cooling and freezes condensation blocking pipes. Good advice was to: 1. run with AC off for a while to rest the system and thaw the pipes and then try again. if AC blows colder and fans blow harder then system was probably frozen. Fix: move sensor that tells the AC
  10. Today I drove for an hour with the AC on cold and the fans on high and the car was very nice inside. Outside temp was 34degsC. I parked in the sun, got out, locked the car and left it for almost 1 hour. Then when I went back to the car and restarted it to drive away the AC was never very cold on the 1 hour trip home and the fans at times were not very powerful. Strange. The fan did adjust to all 3 speed settings but it was at times quite weak. my car is 11 months old with 5k miles. It has until now been almost faultless. Sound familiar to anyone? TIA
  11. wow @C8RKHMcDonalds has clearly seen inflation since i last dined out with my wife!
  12. Carelss abandon of the paintwork with box placed on top and 'dragged' no less, 'DRAGGED' across the paint as it was rotated. I think you may need some retraining to correct your wrong think. Nice offering tho and thanks for the video.
  13. Steve, intrigued. Without asking specifics, to save blushes on both sides, would’t you be better buying a cup 430? Or will you keep this for t’duration? Seems to me all cash invested may fund fun but will be lost on resale. Or do you care little about that? I swapped my 350 for a 410 when I realised that I wanted to spend 1/2 the difference making my 350 more 410-like.
