  2. Due to pickup my 250 Cup FE shortly. I went with carbon sills and am now wondering if I should have gone with Alcantara sills, so am enquiring with the dealer to see if they can swap them over retrospectively. If not, is anyone here in the market for an almost brands new (i.e. fitted to my car then removed whilst still in the showroom) set of carbon sills?

    To those seasoned Lotus drivers on here:

    - does anyone struggle with heel and toe because the brake and accelerator is too far apart, and if so are there any recommended aftermarket solutions?

    - are there any recommended setup changes to the car out of the box for track work - different pads? in understeer on corner entry a problem, and are their solutions to address?

    Sorry for the questions - coming over to Lotus as a longtime Caterham owner!

  3. I believe black alcantara with contrast stitching is now being offered as a NCO on the Cup 250 FE, just as it has always been offered as a NCO on the Cup 430 FE.

    As I understand it, this came about following complaints that the silver alcantara comes out far lighter than the configurator would suggest.

  5. I am considering purchasing an Exige 430/410 for trackday use, but am aware that the factory fitted exhaust will fail noise limits on almost all UK trackdays.

    Based on what I have found from some internet research, the following aftermarket options are available:
    1) Seriously Lotus:
    2) Komotec:
    3) For a time I believe Lotus offered a factory approved aftermarket option, but no longer do:
    From what I have read elsewhere online, I believe this is the same as the options listed above that are still offered by Seriously Lotus and Komotec

    4) 2Bular:
    5) Hangar111:
    6) Komotec muffler:

    This website (I assume written by 2Bular) is not complimentary about all options other than theirs:

    But then I have read other forum postings that are equally uncomplimentary about 2Bular.

    This Pistonheads user seems happy with his 2Bular exhaust:

    I would very much appreciate some advice from anyone that has researched the same issue, or has fitted any of the above options, as to what you would recommend?

    I don't mind not being able to drive Goodwood/Thruxton, but am looking for a solution that would get me on track at all other UK tracks, without having to coast/liftoff/short shift each time I go past the DB sensors at the track - want to be able to drive full chat without having to constantly worry about noise!

  6. Is the "official" Lotus Track Exhaust still available (whether from Hoffmans or anyone else)?


    Is it the same as the products offered by Seriously Lotus and Komotec:


    What are people's experiences of this exhaust as compared to the 2Bular offering:


    I am looking to purchase an Exige 430/410 for UK trackday use, so understand I will need to purchase one of these products, and would appreciate whatever advice anyone is happy to offer!
