  1. Hi - I went for the carbon ones from alias 123 plus carbon side sills. I fitted the mirrors to my last exige (350) and inevitably had to take the door cards off to retrieve the bolts… Blue tac is probably a good shout. See you around and abouts. Garv
  2. Now to think about minor mods… I have the carbon mirrors and rear canard extensions but really want side skirts, aim dash, headlight upgrade etc… I have been out of an exige for 12-months and it’s great to be back…
  3. Ah thanks for that... I’m not great with following instructions! ... not relishing taking door cards off again, may just live with it...!
  4. ... I should say snap on the 350 in Blue - I have bought the Alias23 air filter, side skirts and I’m waiting on the mirrors... Love Vivid Green but alas there were no deals on that colour when I bought my car... I would love to take the plunge on the komotec.... the wife would not be impressed with the outlay tho...
  5. I would check the wrap point as Lotus Silverstone (my local dealer) had applied a Matt wrap to the front panel on one of their used cars - it was a subtle Matt carbon effect.. my car is 50% outside and 50% garage - I find that if I lock it away, it’s too much hassle to get it out for the odd drive to work etc... and also, the battery dies over winter if I leave it for more than 2-3 weeks without a run..
  6. I fitted my alias23 intake 2-weeks ago - v impressed! Noise is better and the car feels more eager... standard system seems too protracted vs Imran’s ‘Straight thru pipe’ design... a really good upgrade imo.
  7. No one complains - they just think you’re a douchbag
  8. The burning off excess fuel sounds logical - i don’t believe it’s programmed to rev for vanity as it doesn’t always do it.... it’s not a great sound frankly so it’s just annoying... I guess I may have liked it when i was 17.. When I say not a great sound - I mean it is just coarse, possibly because the valves aren’t open...
  9. Hi all - when starting my exige it sometimes fires up with a quiet calm start and then other times, it revs aggressively (a blip) - this is annoying as when I leave work or when I’m at a petrol station, it looks like I’m revving it.... to be clear, there is no throttle load and it happens intermittently and both when the car is cold and when it is warmed up... any ideas why this happens??
  10. Hi - yes it’s Essex blue I think! It kind of changes colour - very deep blue at dusk (almost royal blue), much lighter in the sunshine (like BMW Estoril Blue). All best Garv
  11. By chance, anyone taking their Exige to tenby this weekend by any chance (or owner who lives in Tenby?!) Garv
  12. I saw a handful of exiges in Milton Keynes today - yellow exige reg ‘RW Lotus’ and a I think a Red Exige 350 plus maybe a navy Blue one...! Not sure if there was a meet but I live in MK so if it’s a local meet of owners, drop me a line - would like to get to know local Lotus nutters! I was on the A5 I. My Blue 35O coupe (softop converted). Andrew
  13. I would like a pair when you are taking orders
  14. Thanks all... it’s great.. I have already ordered some side canards from alias 123 and next thing is to sort a soft top conversion... Lotus Silverstone were amazing.... go see Aimee if you could be tempted to change your car...
