  1. This must be the brake switch, common fault, very easy and cheap to replace.
  2. These wheels are truly amazing, I personally can not digest the price but the detail and style are spot on. Wonderful items.
  3. Mine was also done with no issues at all. I wasn't aware of this being part of the service in all honesty however changing them every 2 years might be an overkill - still, it depends how much use the car get i guess.
  4. Good story - keep the updates going George. Intrigued to see the new colour, full on doubts you can top LY but I'll be very glad if I'm wrong:) Can you pls share some info on the battery tray? Never realised that the later ones are made from aluminium - I've got a Li battery with a decent 13kg weight saving, wouldn't say no to some more.
  5. @Texcan you please share some pics when fitted? Did you get the torx or normal ones and also, I take it that the purchase is subject to import taxes? Thanks
  6. Beautiful car and pics - typical Clio driver eh?:)
  7. Fantastic, now, where are the videos?:)
  8. This is quite puzzling if true. I find it very hard to believe that Lotus would offer dash support for a tiny number of FE cars sold so why they bothered fitting one in the fist place? Maybe that's why they locked it down to only have basic features in - if it breaks they simply replace.
  9. Nothing to contribute here but your driving is superb. Great footage. Car also sounds immense - you guys in the continent are very lucky with the noise levels. What exhaust have you got?
  10. Assuming they get it right, a seemless interface would win it for me - bug-less and glitch-less experience with indicators put on the right place, fuel range and warning indicator working as it should and layouts changing depending the mode you are in (I know, very gimmicky but I like that). Laptimer is great if you make use of it, otherwise it is just another option:) the FE one is also cheaper by the looks of it:) price on deroure is £1000 plus vat.
  11. Interesting, thanks Rob hadn't realised it was listed - it'd be awesome if they eventually interface it with the older cars, somehow I can't see it happening though.
  12. Any updates from Lotus as to whether they will make the FE dash available then?
  13. Intrigued to see the new colour - I don't really think that you can top a LY (mega RenautSport fan here) but yet again I appreciate that you want a change.
  14. Thanks Mark. So how is the cooling achieved on the OEM application then? Just air from the side vents? To the untrained eye (like mine) there are substancial differences when comparing a 410/430 to a 350/380 EX460 kit. The former is a big square box like the Harrop unit (I suppose the cooling bit is incorportated with the SC) and the latter has the supercharger sitting on the cooler. Any benefits/drawbacks of each? I think I read somewhere - don't quote me on this of course - that the stock SC is already on the edge of its performance on our cars - I take it that with the chargecooler the stresses are less as it operates at lower temps? Thanks
  15. Nice project this - by now you must have done every single upgrade to the car! It might have been mentioned but I take it that you have also upgraded the clutch to cater for the extra torque/power? Mainly for educational purposes, what is the difference between the Komotec solution (chargecooling on the base of the existing SC unit) and the 410/430 in regards to the supercharger application? Thanks
