  1. Hi all I have quite a poltergeist and I think the culprit is the stupid cobra immobilizer, this is the sequence of events 1) I open the car with the key (immobilizer is turned off) 2) put the key into the cylinder and move it to the position II, I can see all the lights in the dash, but I can't hear the fuel pump priming (If at this point I press the engine start button I have a hesitant start of the engine) 3) move the key back to position I 4) move the key to position II, then I can see the lights in the dash PLUS the fuel pump priming m the car starts normally What is more funny With the immobilizer turned off if I take the key out of the cylinder and I let enough time pass as to hear the beeps of the alarm (or I suppose that is the alarm) when I put the key back into the cylinder I ALSO have to do the "ritual", key to position II key back to position I and key to position II to hear the fuel pump priming Lotus Electronic is a well known disgusting thing, if you add the cobra alarm to the equation it makes it even worse any ideas are welcomed Regards
  2. Hi I would like to buy a lithium battery for my 2020 Exige and I can seen that for the same model there is one called "euro 6", my car is supposed to be euro 6, the main difference between both models is this: "This battery is specially designed for vehicles with intelligent generator control" How do I know if my 2020 Exige has that?? Thank you
  3. Do you know any place from where I can buy the 380 wing plates to be fitted in my 410 wing?? Lotus's price is just absurd ....
  4. Ah Ok, definitely, adding charge cooling to the kit (EX 460) is around 15k Eur 👍
  5. Komotech ex475 pack for a 410-430 is 6k GBP, way less than 20k
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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....
  12. +1 and I know a few, specially EX-460, close to 500nm
  13. Not sure where the hype for a 2.0 with a big turbo is coming from...
  14. +400bhp with an absolute ridiculous lag
  15. You were simply lucky, not the norm at all. The norm is to pay both VAT and import duties
  16. Hi It was not me, I haven't even tried to install the new bulbs yet
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. Thank you :), sadly I'm going to have to try with another seller as this one does not ship to Spain What did you do to adapt the spades connectors of the main bean bulb to the new ones ?? Regatds
  20. Which one did you buy?? Did you buy it on eBay??
  21. Yes, no light on the dash at all, It was just a routine obd2 check after I noticed the brake noise and removed/put back the brake pad to identify where the noise was coming from
  22. Hi Folks D Doing a routine OBD2 scan after I go a weird noise breaking, that finally turned out to be the brake pads, I got the following error: Chassis C22C1. I haven't been able to find any information about this error neither online nor in the service manual nor in the forum, I'm wondering if it could be due to removing and putting back the brake pads. There's no light at the dash Could anyone shed some light on this? Regards
