  1. Not sure if it is of interest, but I am thinking of selling my 2019 Exige 350 with Komotec 460 conversion. The car is immaculate and has done only 2k miles, has forged lightweight wheels, Cup 2's, gearbox cooler, long range tank, JRZ adjustable suspension?
  2. Certainly brightens up the neighborhood!
  3. Might be worth considering fitting a larger tank, I had one fitted to mine and it is much more convenient.
  4. Coming back to the original post, my advice would be to buy a late low mileage 350 in the spec you want if it is performance/ bucks value you're after.
  5. I would not risk it personally. Another one will come along.
  6. You did not mention whether you are using the legal sized letters on a cut-off plate, or a smaller three quarter sized, scaled down plate. I did find the original fixings still work with a three quarter scale plate.
  7. I have a set off my brand new 350 less than 1000 miles if you need some..
  8. Good driving! Does your car have a gearbox oil cooler?
  9. I've had my 350 for six months and cannot for the life of me work out how to use the radio. Has anyone else managed it?
  10. Thanks all for the replies. Have now fitted Cup 2 tyres on 430 forged wheels, and am fitting JRZ shocks from Hangar 111. Will report after first trackday (Whenever that will be!) On the road I can already feel an improvement from the forged wheels and Cup 2 tyres (Whilst delivering a hot meal to mother in law at good speed).
  11. Thanks for that George, I phoned Sam and he is sorting some out. Cheers!
  12. If anyone has a set of 17x 7.5 or 8 and 18x 10 forged wheels am looking for a set. Thanks!
  13. Thanks for that very interesting comparison between the different weight wheels ralleysax. It is a significant amount clearly, I wonder how much that would amount to in one lap? Also it shows that maybe the shocks and tyres would make a bigger difference for the investment? I guess at the end of the day all these 3 factors work together, even so, which is the most important and would give the most benefit for the money? Has anyone tried the JRZ shocks compared to the Nitrons?
  14. When you changed to forged wheels and Nitron one way did you change tyres? Is there a reason to go to the Nitron three way?
  15. Of course tyres are always a subjective subject, but can anyone recommend the best track-day tyres for a Sport 350? My car currently has the standard suspension and cast wheels and Michelin PS4s, I am considering going to forged wheels with 10" rears and keep the current wheels and Michelin PS4's for wet track / road use. I did consider Avon ZZR's, but they do not come with wider rears and are not road legal. Cup 2's at 215/45 fronts will have a very slightly larger rolling diameter and rears at 285/30 slightly smaller, does this rule them out with standard suspension as it is not adjustable? If so, what is the best dry road legal tyre to go for? If I decide to go down the adjustable suspension route I was considering the one way JRZ shocks, does anyone have any experience with them? I have been told they do not have the tendency to crash bang over potholes compared with the Nitron one way's. Finally, is there any measurable improvement using forged, rather than cast wheels? I would really appreciate anyones advice at the best way to go, thanks!
  16. Vivid Green v Viper Green metallic
  17. I recently bought a new Exige 350 and am loving it.. So much more in so much less, and you can drive one around and not feel too flash. People seem to like Lotus cars, they look aggressive but also friendly, (Especially in Vivid green) Add a few mods and you can be keeping up with Ferraris and McLarens in a car that's smaller and nimbler. So much character and feel.
  18. A bit unfortunate that it reads toe nail in English..
