  1. Cheers. I already bought the borescope and the magnet pickup tool. I had a fiddle around but couldn’t see anything. I’ll try the strong magnet at the bottom of the door trick. I’ve swung the doors open a few times and can’t hear any rattles at the moment.
  2. I’ve managed to drop a screw in each door trying to fit my new GW Hell SLO mirrors. Anyone got any tips on how I go about finding them and getting them out?
  3. When I bought mine they came with a new relay which is swapped out got the original under the dashboard. I have a v6s though so might be different. others have needed to install a resistor
  4. I see what you mean, I wouldn’t be happy with that either. Have you heard back from them yet?
  5. Could you take a picture of the weave to show what you mean?
  6. Shipping costs does not include VAT, duty etc… as per their T&Cs
  7. The additional taxes doesn’t make it such a good deal. The 430 cup Louvered hatch is £1600 + £550 delivery + import duty (15%?) + VAT Total cost would likely be over £3k which is still cheaper than the Lotus part but it’s a lot of money for just a bit of bling.
  8. Sorry to go on but did you have to pay any VAT on the goods? I’m reading up on import duties and one website says none due from HK due to the free trade agreement but then I’m reading other posts where people suggest VAT and Import Duty is to be paid.
  9. How long did the delivery take? How much extra did you get charged for import duty? I suppose if you want to return the front panel you’ll have to pay to get that sent back and then apply for the duty paid on that item. seems a lot of faff but I suppose it’s worth the risk if the cost savings are worth it.
  10. I’d be interested to hear more about this company too. The 430 carbon rear Louvre looks tempting.
  11. You took a huge gamble buying a 720s if you’re worried about depreciation. Surely depreciation on any lotus would be a “drop in the ocean” in comparison? Personally, I don’t think the Emira will effect prices of the Exige to much if at all. Lotus always hold their money well and the Exige is a fantastic car. But, no one has a crystal ball so who knows. Good luck, nice position to be in.
  12. That looks ace! There can’t be much else to replace now!
  13. That bottom photo looks the dogs! what rear hatch is that you got?
  14. Decided to get a baffled sump installed just for peace of mind as I’m using the car a lot more on track now. I got one from Seriously Lotus, the fabrication looks great and it arrived less than 24hrs later.
