  1. Ah Ok, definitely, adding charge cooling to the kit (EX 460) is around 15k Eur 👍
  2. Komotech ex475 pack for a 410-430 is 6k GBP, way less than 20k
  3. Yes, definitely, but not just literally when you put your foot on the brake and move it 1 mm, at least that is not the behavior in my other car with CC, you need a bit more than 1 mm for it to kick you out of CC
  4. More to the story I reset yesterday the switch as per the service notes instructions, and so far so good (20 miles with hard braking and accelerations, no heel and toe tho). With 5 "clicks" the brake pedal is not that sensible to kick you out of cruise mode simply by putting the foot on the pedal Another interesting data-point is that it also started to misbehave as I stared to use more and more heel and me that is insane in a car like a Lotus Exige
  5. Ok today I got the dreaded TCS light plus a wrench icon in the dash later, the car even went into some sort of limp mode (P2104 Throttle actuator control system - Forced idle) I also read the codes: P1106 and the more specific P0571 Cruise control/brake switch A circuit So 99% a faulty pedal switch brake sensor, I've ordered a new one from elise-parts
  6. Hi folks, Hopefully you can shed some more light on the problem I'm experiencing. Over the last month (and shortly after an ECU reset disconnecting the battery, but I guess it was a mere coincidence) the following is happening to my Exige 410: -Most of the time right after breaking or after a few seconds of braking and pressing quickly and gently the throttle pedal (almost fully) the car simply: 1) Cuts power off for 1-3 seconds, similar to when you hit the rev limiter 2) Kicks me out of sport/race mode 3) After those 1-3 seconds everything goes back to normal, no dash lights and no OBD errors are logged It is not happening all the time, it is quite random, but it at least happens 1 or 2 times every time I use the car, after reading a lot in the forum apparently there could be 2 culprits, the infamous brake pedal switch or the steering wheel sensor, I've noticed that my brake pedal is extremely sensitive, when I have the cruise control on simply by putting my foot on the pedal (maybe moving it 1-2 mm) the cruise control gets disconnected Next steps: -I've ordered silicone grease to put it on the pedal switch plunge -Moving the plunge one click in, in order to make it less sensitive?? -Replace the switch itself? -Take it to the dealer ??? I would like to avoid this one as the closer dealer is 400 km away, and on top of that no error is being logged in the ECU Any hits or help would be much appreciated Regards

    Lotus Emira

    An evora 410 is faster than a 350 ok, the 350 using Corsa's An evora 410 is slower than a Exige 380 using both cups An evora 430GT is slower than a exige cup 430 both using cups (you cannot hide 200kg)

    Lotus Emira

    Emira in its lightest form is lighter than Evora S IPS, let's see what the "standard" Emira weight is....
  9. +1 and I know a few, specially EX-460, close to 500nm
  10. Not sure where the hype for a 2.0 with a big turbo is coming from...
  11. +400bhp with an absolute ridiculous lag
  12. You were simply lucky, not the norm at all. The norm is to pay both VAT and import duties
  13. Hi It was not me, I haven't even tried to install the new bulbs yet
  14. Hi all, I got a tool to measure camber, and I was quite surprised with the results, almost 3 negative degrees on the rear axle. AFAIK the stock rear camber in the 380/410/430 is -2.15 +-0.15 Rear: Front: is this normal? PS: the result measuring it from the brake discs or the week cap is practically the same
  15. No sure if it is something common or what they did but in the sound system in my exige 20th I get the current battery voltage
