  1. Yes, still waiting for his response on email. Hopefully we figure this out.
  2. Hello everyone, Has any installed this GRP LED steering wheel on an Automatic Evora 400? Apparently, I have figured out everything except the screen wiring. The problem I am facing right now is that I cannot get a positive source to power up the screen. In the manual evoras they do not have paddle shifters which is great because you can use the 3rd pin on the clock spring to supply the positive 12v source. However, in the Automatic evoras they come with the shifters which uses 5v connector not 12v.... I tried to look at horn wiring diagram but it uses ground -12v from clock spring as it get +12v from the relay. Anyone could please figure this out for me please? I would appreciate it.
  3. Thanks for your reply mate, I will be trying that the sooner I have free time to drive it to nearest lotus dealership and let them have a look at it and do that quick test.
  4. Hello everyone, I am facing an issue with my transmission fluid. After my track day, I had major service on my Evora 400 all fluids changed. However, my car is not changing gears smoothly like before especially between 2nd to 3rd to 4th. I went back to the dealer and they found out that about 700ml is missing from transmission fluid so they topped it up and it became good afterwards. But after couple months of driving, the problem came back again. I do not see any leakage under the car or anywhere near the transmission. Any idea how to fix this? or did anyone have this issue before?
  5. I have the same issue but my problem is the sheet is broken from inside so I need to do your method by creating a metal sheet to make the bumper rigid and not saggy anymore ๐Ÿ˜
  6. Thats true but man this fuse box is pain in the arse to access ๐Ÿคฏ I will try to replace this fuse and see if it works.
  7. Hi, I noticed my boot light is not turning on anymore. I replaced the bulb and still no light on. Any idea if it is fuse related or it has to do with boot release mechanism just like the glove box there is a mini press switch behind it to light it up on open? If anyone found a solution thread please link it here because I didn't find any yet. Thanks everyone ๐Ÿ˜‡
  8. I want to replace it with decat straight pipe but scared it might cause check engine light or doesn't? can someone confirm please?
  9. Can anyone tell me if this is a normal dyno result for Evora 400 '16 ?
  10. Back again to this post, I wanted to share this little thing I think it might help some people with their phone mount. Since I am an engineer (haha๐Ÿ‘ทโ€โ™‚๏ธ) I have actually created a copy of GRP {please don't sue me๐Ÿ˜…} version of their phone mount and it costed me about (2 USD) for the metal parts and (10 USD) for the magnetic mount. First, I have made a drawing of the model shape that I wanted to create and put all the measurements on it; After that I put it on a metal sheet to prepare it for cutting process; Then, I have sanded the sharp edges so I don't cut my fingers also I used hammer to bend it to the shape I want and drilled holes for the screws; After spray painting it with matte black 3-4 coats, this is the finish result; and with the stereo frame on๐Ÿ˜; *note to self* do not take the measurements exactly as it may be slightly different but it is maybe 0.1 cm off๐Ÿ˜‡ if you have got any questions, I would be happy to answer anything.
  11. Sorry for taking long in posting on this thread I took a small vacation with my family and now im back Anyhow, I started on re-painting all the ventilation grills on the back because they were worn out
  12. Yeah I personally love white cars when they have red interior it makes them get stand out sharply. ๐Ÿ˜‡ I totally pictured my finish project and set up milestones on paper the things I wanted to change or improve in the car. Glad everyone loved it
  13. Now, I moved to add few touches to interior and exterior of the car, here are the things that I have changed; I ordered carbon fiber pedal shifters and exterior side air scoops Also got myself on these wheels badges and steering wheel badge because my wheels badge were worn off and scratched a lot Lastly, I replaced tail lights to GRP V3 and all interior light bulbs and license plate bulbs to led ones to give sharp look better than yellow color
  14. Right after I bought the car, I had to do major service to the car since the previous owner did not drive it much and left it in the shade for too long. First I changed engine oil and oil filter Then had to change transmission fluid as well After that had to change the spark plugs also break fluid, brake pads, new tyres, pollen filter and K&N air filter (sorry did not have any pictures on phone๐Ÿ˜) Finally had to do wheel alignment and wheel balance
  15. Ok so first of all, I had to get rid of the beige interior color and redesign the seats. It took me over two weeks to get it done but it is totally worth it. First, we had to remove the seats and removed all the panels and everything that can be painted. That was a hard work to be honest and we had to read through lotus service manual notes to figure out where are the clips and screws And the end result are;
