  1. Was it delivered on time, or with some delay ? Thx πŸ‘
  2. Stunning, looks promising πŸ‘ Is the yellow Solid yellow, or Liquid yellow ?
  3. See this :
  4. Exactly, and perfect πŸ‘πŸ™‚
  5. The cylinder on the adaptor is fairly thin (5.5mm), depending on the hard push I wonder whether or not aluminium would finally break here... Stainless steel would be much stronger, but certainly at a higher production cost 😐
  6. What is it made from ? Would have to be solid enough not to fail / break, especially considering the additional "push" needed to engage the gear. Many thx πŸ‘
  7. Many thanks Dave for your technical feedback, really appreciated ! I'll then follow your advices and stick with the A-frame only. Good to know that only the passenger seat may have to be removed, and that the 5 bolts are easily accessible without having to dismount anything else. Fairly acceptable on a new car. What about the roof ? Does everything go out through the passenger's door, or should the (carbon) roof also be removed ? Thank you again guys πŸ‘πŸ™‚
  8. Thank you very much @Arun_D for your feedback πŸ‘ I agree, I would also be very happy to get it done at the factory on the assembly line, but seems "difficult"... So, if it comes in black, I'll take a decision depending on the parts to remove, and risks to damage them (some may be glued, hard to properly reassemble etc...). And as I'm meticulous... Perhaps someone with experience on this specific area ? @Hangar 111 for example ? πŸ™‚ Thank you again !
  9. Hello, I have some concerns regarding the Cup 430 roll hoop and A-frame. In order to paint the A-frame (item 5), it needs to be dismounted. Does it come easily ? Or does it imply to remove other parts such as the seats, or even worse, bodyside assemblies and rear clamshell ? As per a photo I found (attached), screws seem to be behind the bodyside assemblies, so I wonder... Same questions for the roll hoop (item 6) itself ? And SBAF assemblies (items 20/21) ? I'm about to buy a brand new car, with the A-frame. I would like to have the whole roll hoop + A-frame + SBAF assemblies body-colour painted. But I'm rather scared to have the car dismounted, especially the body parts, the car being brand new... I may then have it partially painted, only the A-frame, if it's easy. Perhaps there are expected events / maintenances in the Exige life, during which the needed parts are to be dismounted ? So that I could have it painted at this time. Thank you very much !
  10. And do you have some indication / status on the TFT dashboard, when playing with the switch ? Thank you !
  11. You do not classify S3 Exige (Cup 430 for instance) as "for the Drivers" ? And would rather choose an Emira ?
  12. Thank you for the details ! They will simply get rid of the whole plastic cover behind the seats :’s-lotus-exige-cup-430/ Unfortunately, seems like they do not propose the dashboard panel without the speakers holes... Which would make sense when ordering the car without radio.
  13. Nicely configured No A-frame for the harnesses ? As it seems track focused, with the engine-cut and fire-extinguisher, I wonder Matt black wheels, as the Final Edition configurator proposes ? Or satin black, as seen as standard on previous Exige ? Thx πŸ‘
  14. Tex, thank you again for your experience sharing πŸ‘ Last question, still using default anti roll bars and chassis heights settings ?
  15. And then by how many "clicks" (compared to the factory spec) did you soften front/rear high/low compression & rebound for track use at Donington ? So that it could help others Thank you again πŸ‘
  16. Compared to the factory settings ? Of course feel free to share, if possible Many thx πŸ‘
  17. Reference 07a, "Digital Instrument Pack, WIFI upgrade" (where more than "WIFI" could be packed into this upgrade) ? Will have to ask for more info...
  18. You can still physically unplug the pipe to the valve for an always-on mode. There are also some modules with a remote-control to open/close the valve from the cabin. And there's still the aquarium mode
  19. According to what I have been said, this function has been disabled internally in the ECU of the last production units... So should not work anymore on last produced Exige.
  20. French dealer, Road Racing Center. Pretty sure you can contact them in English :
  21. I did not ask for part number / price, only for feasibility (was one topic among many others, by phone...). But would be interesting to know yes, feel free if you have the opportunity to get this info πŸ‘
  22. I had the confirmation by a dealer, required module can be ordered later-on to enable datalogger and GPS laptiming features on the FE dashboard.
  23. Unfortunately I don't know about other electrical extinguishers. At least the various few (race) cars I ran with such an extinguisher had this 3 positions switch.
  24. You have an internal switch to engage / enable the fire extinguisher circuit. When off, switches don't have any effect. Not sure about the battery cut. You see this internal switch on your second Deroure link, that's the small box with a 3 positions switch : off / test / enable.
