  1. Where did you find this out from? Was it confirmed by Moroso or do you follow the dipstick measurement? Do you have the Moroso oil sump? 2l sounds a lot.
  2. Hello, I'm having a moroso baffled oil sump fitted to my exige 350 however can't seem to find conclusive info. on how much oil is required for an oil change following installation of the new sump? I've emailed Moroso awaiting a response however if anyone has one installed would appreciate your input. Thanks,
  3. For anyone who's interested I've put my cup 2 tyres up for sale, link below.
  4. I've just fitted the new Bridgestone Potenza Sports. Haven't had a chance properly try them however I have donnington booked soon so will feedback. Initial impressions are quite pointless as they are completely new, however the reviews seems to be very positive. Will be able to give you more details next week. Edit: Forgot to mention, there is a chap who gave his feedback on the bridgestones in the wet during a bedford trackday.
  5. Thanks, I've ordered the bridgestones. I'll be sad to see the cup 2's go however I'll stick the cup 2 connects on next spring and the bridgestones will get me through autumn / winter. Michelin have awful stock issues at the moment. I've got Donnington and Snetterton booked over the next month so should be able to report back on how they perform on track.
  6. Could I ask what pressures you were running both cold and hot?
  7. Thanks, that's really helpful to know and a good alternative to the PS4. Also they seem well priced at around £500 for a full set. How did the wear look after the trackday? I've read a review on tyrereviews, someone complaining about terrible tyre wear after a trackday (obv. they didn't provide any specifics that would be helpful!!).
  8. For those who may be in a similar position to me, I spoke with Michelin and a couple of tyre suppliers. The cup 2 connect tyres in both 215/45/17 and 265/35/18 are currently out of stock with no date set for when stock will be replenished. I will likely get some ps4 tyres all round and use them on my upcoming track day and through winter. And purchase a set of cup 2 connects next year. Has anyone had any experience with ps4 tyres on track (such a shame the ps4s are not available in our sizes).
  9. Hello, I've got a sport 350 currently on cup 2's (215/265). Looks like the rears are at 3mm and I've got 2 trackdays booked so I'm looking to replace the rears like for like but impossible to get hold of 265/35/18 cup 2s at the moment! Someone prove me wrong pls!! I was wondering if the 285/30/18 cup 2 tyre would fit the oem wheels or would there be fitment issues?
  10. Brought myself a sport 350 and picking it up next week, and blown away by your build, however worried about the toll it may now take on my bank account given all the ideas your build has given me!! Would be cool to data log some differences vs a stock 350 both straight line and track.
  11. Cheers, is it a plug and play option or is any drilling required? Any change in bolts required, if so what size?
  12. Both beautiful cars! This is my Z4M

  14. Cheers, looks good. I'll be there.
  15. Thanks! Yea it had me in the first few minutes of driving it. Its basically what I always wanted the Z4M to feel like, but couldn't get there with it. Yea was a lovely car, seems like the previous owner was also quite meticulous with it. I'm based in Watford so not too far.
  16. Just purchased a lotus exige 350 and being 6ft tall I have head room but my knees touch the bottom of the steering wheel. I need the steering wheel to come a bit further out. Does anyone know of any wheel spacers options that work with the airbag steering wheel?
  17. Hi guys, I've done a deal on my first lotus moving over from a BMW Z4M Coupe. The Z4M was a very special car but I wanted something a little more raw and connected. Lotus did it for me and I made the move to buy one last weekend. Just waiting for the car to be prepped and hopefully will collect it in a couple weeks. I'm a proud owner of a black exige 350. Looking forward to some forum chat, learning and banter and hopefully meeting some fellow petrol heads!
