  1. Hi, I have an S3 which I want to fit better shock/springs/bushes on to. I've confused myself researching... but it seems the choice is pretty much Nitron! My question is - which ones? I drive road 90% track10% Fast street or Fast street NTR? Which one? Will the NTR be too stiff on-road? Hoffmans apparently do a specially valved Nitron set up, which is great, from what I have read. The problems is, most of what I read about any of it, is a few years old. So I'd appreciate your experience on suspension renewal... What should I buy?
  2. I notice that your 4" grills are fitted into the dashboard recess, unlike many other installs of this speaker. Do you know how this was achieved and do you have more pictures please. (was the plastic surround cut down, or a totally separate surround used?) cheers
  3. Reading this in Feb 2020.... but the info above is still relevant to a new Elise 220 owner like me looking to see what's tuning is about - which is actually very little. Although I have seen a new offering from a UK tuner - so I though I'd add it. An Elise racer used him and its on Youtube for you to see (link below). Looks like an identical offer to the Komotec one. But... and its a big but... they can add uprated injectors (the limiting factor from 260) and claim 300bhp. Whats you thoughts? I'm tempted!
  4. What a wet day! I didn’t get a chance to say ‘hi’ to most of you today, but I thought the effort gone to for the cake was fantastic and worth recognition. Well done to those involved.
  5. I’m a new to Elise ownership... and here’s some initial thoughts - please understand, I love it. But here’s some thoughts... on the ‘why?’ ... has no one else thought this ... has Lotus not bettered this ... did this make it to production ... is it not an aftermarket part None which change or add weight etc to the car. (And it’s meant to be tongue in cheek.. although I would really like the first one) - why isn’t there a soft edge or soft edge additional cushion to the sill? To help exit on my thigh. (I’m over 6’ tall, so it’s a squeeze with the roof on) - why is t
  6. I'll see if I get over on Sunday with my Crimbo pressy. Early suits me. It would be nice to speak 'with' other Lotus owners instead of talking 'to' non owners! lol I've turned up at NC, on a motorbike or a road bike in the past... so a first in few ways!
