  1. My Cup 2s are coming up for replacement and I am considering the options, replace with same, try A052s (I am doing handful of track days a year) or move to a more road based tyre that is better in the wet, in daily traffic etc. Sizing is a problem as i would like PS4S, but PS4 in a 275/35 are available, not ideal but seems pretty close. Interested in others experiences and opinions.
  2. I was looking at this and as above the dealer said it was do drama to retro fitted, just needs a couple of holes, as above, my biggest issues were the availability of the soft top (might be a local thing) and that 9 out of 10 I see on the road drive with the roofs on (which is a local thing).
  3. Mine works fine, it was installed by the dealer and I haven't really touched it, the data logging for TD is great and having a speedo I can read "in the moment" is license saving...I have no complaints and there are have been a large number of these being installed now. Reading through the comments it appears to be the early adopters and those that like to fettle that appear to have the issues...which I think is entirely unsurprising and to be expected.
  4. Yeah, my fuel lights comes on around then as well. Haven’t quite got into the rhythm of it, ie how much fuel is left but guessing around 10 litres, so ~100km depending on how it is being driven.
  5. How do Yokohama A052s, (which are available in the correct size), compare to Cup 2s? Are they equivalent in their respective ranges?
  6. Would love a roof scoop on the 410...
  7. My recent favorite is taking a few days to drive around 1,500km on some magnificent roads with a few other guys, all driving Porches. When we had stopped for a break at the top of one mountain a couple of cyclists rode past, stopped briefly, surveyed the cars then one said "Lotus wins" and they both kept riding... it is fair the say the other boys were a bit put out😂
  8. The cable/handle in my 410 snapped and i know a few others that have had the same has been fine since fixed and I open it a few times a week. I was told if it feels tight to put a bit of pressure down on the lid where the lock as the catch to allow it to release.
  9. I picked up an 410 Exige a year ago and also have a 2008 Jaguar XKR (sentimental) plus wife has usual SUV, my son is driving an 2014 Honda Accord which he is currently looking to sell to get something more interesting (which is great)....I have been driving the 410 almost daily with the Jag once or so a week, love both...very different and love both for what they do. My total km per year will be around 15k. What are everyone’s thoughts on the pros and cons of keeping the Honda as an extra car for emotion free motoring?
  10. Is there an after market fuel filler cap that doesn’t need a key? aluminium would be ideal.
  11. Do the pads have a 'early-warning' component built into them, like some pads have a metal band that makes a noise to show the pads are wearing down?
  12. You can get the warning coded out so the light turns off after a couple of seconds and no chime.
  13. Apologies if this has been done before, but why is there a different centre ‘spine’ between cars, it seems a bit random ie. same model but different style?
