  2. Here’s a link from 2bular to explain their side of things… I don’t have any affiliation 2bular but think it’s only fair to hear from both sides before casting judgement. Jim goes on a bit of a rant but does state part of the exhaust was from a car previously crashed… It’s terrible what’s happened to Eddie, and hopefully he gets he’s car repaired without too much hurt to he’s pocket.
  3. Has anyone fitted a quick release steering wheel on an IPS car? I was wondering if there were any issues with the paddles being too far out of reach from the wheel? Is it possible to fix the paddles to the wheel rather than fixed to the steering column.
  4. I think the ducts they are referring are on the existing diffuser which you just transfer over.
  5. I upgraded the pads first, went for Performance Frictions, this made a huge difference although they did eat through the standard discs pretty quickly. I now have the big brake Alcon floating discs from SL. Haven’t used them properly yet but I had heard good things about them. Hopefully they last a bit longer than the standard drilled discs.
  6. Speak to Dave at SL, he’ll be totally honest with you. I ended up buying he’s 1-way’s with their own valving set-up purely as I trust his judgement. I wanted a fit and forgot set-up that that was mainly track focussed. I can still change the stiffness and that’s all I really cared about. I don’t chase times though, I just have fun.
  7. Yes it’s Carbon but it’s been painted matte black. Not sure if I want to keep it that black, paint it body colour or bring it back to Carbon finish.
  8. I did plan to use the gas struts but I couldn’t get a rivnut tool in position. I’ve since bought the boot stay but haven’t fitted it yet.
  9. I have V6S and I changed the rear glass panel to that louvred one. There were just a couple of components that needed to be swapped over
  10. I think we spent about 3/4 hours getting this done and by far the longest part was fitting the new tow strap bracket. Stupid design! Obviously it would have been easier if we dropped the exhaust but we didn’t want to go through all that just for 4 bolts - for something I hope I never have to use.
  11. If you have a warranty then I wouldn’t risk it personally. It could be used against you if the worst were to happen.
  12. I don’t remember there being a major issue, I did have a mate help so it was easier to align everything. we just loosely bolted everything together, lined up and tightened.
  13. Managed to fit the 430 diffuser this weekend (with some help from a mate) The hardest part was swapping the vertical tow strap bracket for the horizontal bracket. Managed to pick up the diffuser for £350 and the grille for about £115. The bracket was £30 so costs were really reasonable considering it was all OEM.
  14. I think Dave at Seriously Lotus (who’s on these forums) will be installing one on one of he’s cars in the coming weeks.
  15. Nice - 460 to 490 kit - what’s that just a larger throttle body and another remap?
  16. I’m looking to do the same thing to my v6s - really like the 430 cup diffuser
  17. I have this exhaust fitted too, it’s so much quieter compared against the 2bular exhaust, but still has a nice burble. I have a video but not sure how to upload it here.
  18. I bought the Elise Parts one which seemed to work but I was on track last week and had similar issues as the OP. My car is currently at Seriously Lotus for some tasty mods… I mentioned the problems I had and Dave said that they had numerous problems with after market brake light switches and now they only sell the genuine lotus ones. I didn’t get any lights on the dash but the car would kick itself out of sport mode and wouldn’t rev. Dave plugged it in but there were no fault codes. He’ll change the switch out as a precaution. Hopefully that’ll sort it.
  20. I had the same issue recently, I bought the switch from Elise Parts for about £30. Fitting it is a ball ache, I had to get in the passenger side backwards then angle my head / body downwards under the dash to see up into the footwell. Once in it was easy to fit the part.
  21. Managed to get it free last night with the help of a pal. The tailgate was set too far back (towards the roof) and the spring anchor point was catching on the latch in the boot. Tip for anyone else, don’t tighten the bolts on the hinges too tight until after you know it opens. Here’s a pic showing the spring anchor point, it need to be fitted so the notch is going left to right
  22. I tried that, was getting frustrated and more and more forceful and decided to stop before I broke something.
  23. I swapped the v6s glass tailgate for a louvred one, lined it all up it and shut it but now it’s stuck shut. the release lever opens it a little but it’s catching and I can get it to open. any tips please?
