  1. That AIM Dash on Bradford's 20th is not same as on final-editions. It's official AIM kit https://www.aimshop.com/products/aim-mx2e-plug-play-dash-logger-kit-for-lotus-elise-exige
  2. There is few Final Editions out there in unlisted colors. We are all aware of Davids Plum Crazy Exige, but I found out about another two still on sale in France. 420 in Championship Gold: https://roadracingcenter.com/portfolio-item/exige-final-edition-sport-420-championship-gold/ 430 in Airforce Blue https://roadracingcenter.com/portfolio-item/lotus-exige-cup-430-airforceblue/ What do you think? I really like both ones and I'm also kinda sad that I didn't know more about Lotus colors before specing mine from configurator. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy with my choice, but there is so much more there
  3. 1. If your ECU has this switch supported, then it should be just plug n play. I don't know how to be sure if ECU will accept it. 2. Switch is located behind steering wheel on the left side, check this picture out (far left)
  4. Read through this tread: Some people just pop out the pipe and blank off both ends. Some people pinch it so it completely blocks passage and some people install valves. However in my opinion, the first thing you want to try is installing the "OEM" switch.
  5. It's been three weeks for me since I've received pictures from my mis-specced Exige. Since now I got confirmation that I will receive new parts (not repainted as they firstly suggested and later on figured out they can't do)and I still don't have an approximate date when the issue will be resolved. I want to drive it badly, but I'm willing to wait till it's same as I want. At least I'm getting rear transom in black like I always wanted, but none of the other black-pack parts.
  6. I don't know, I haven't received the car yet. Also I haven't got answer from my dealer about this issue. However there are few people on forum who already have it installed, there is someone who also was told by dealer that it can't be done. Maybe some cars have it, some dont as they could be using old stock from random versions of cars? Hopefully someone can help clearing up the situation.
  7. @ToqcarsApparently it can be easily installed. Switch text is even supported on TFT dash from factory.
  8. Both cars (Sam and David) look amazing. Have fun collecting miles and hopefully without collecting fines
  9. Oh no, why did I google that. Now I want that 420 color coded carbon spoiler! 🤣
  10. I think some people said it's possible and were quoted ~800€ for that "custom option". I wasn't aware of that at time of order, my dealer said everything or nothing when I asked about it.
  11. Teaser image, car was delivered to dealer today. Now I wait to hear from Lotus (via dealer) for answer about how they plan to go around fixing the spec (car was ordered without black pack). I'm not happy with current situation, but mistakes do happen and I believe Lotus will make things right. I already said that rear clam (transom) is fine as is, as that part is probably the most complicated (and expensive) to revert to non-black-pack. What would you insist on, if this happened to you? That yellow is sooooo yellow! I love it.
  12. Yeah that award is hillarious when you think about it. It's a slow year, they will manufacture probably around 700 cars. I don't know what criteria is there to be awarded "manofacturer of the year". Probably a PR stunt mostly. They need to get on peoples radars for Emira/Evija launches next year.
  13. I'm speechless... can't wait for proper photos in sunlight.
  14. @Brendonian can you share which parts (numbers or links) have you ordered?
  15. As you can read in this thread and the other one, there are few of us here who are experiencing same delays. My car was also scheduled for July, but it has been built at the end of September. Whole production got pushed back as a result of global parts shortage. I'm looking forward to you posting your beautiful Daytona Blue Exige when you receive it, I love that color.
  16. @David Standing yeah back panel was ordered in body colour, as they said they couldn't do just that in black. That part can stay, as I actually prefer it in black. As you've said, other parts are bolt-on and probably fixable. We'll see how it goes.
  17. Every other bit of spec is correct (interior stuff aswell, got photo of that aswell). And it's LHD. I doubt they photographed the wrong one sitting there.
  18. It's one of those days, when you get good and bad news together. I got info that my car was completed a week ago and awaing transportation. Car looks amazing, there is just something that bothers me. I ordered non-black-pack version and they built it with black pack. Tomorrow I need to talk to few people and figure out where it went wrong and if they can rectify this. I like the car, but it's just a sour feeling of spending this amount of money on the car and getting something else than you wanted.
  19. Even if Lotus would let AiM add functionality, what would be their incentive to do that? They can just push mx2e's now to final edition owners sadly There is still some hope that Lotus will do something, but I wouldn't count on it.
  20. Interesting info about side PPF fitted to Exiges at factory. Didn't know about that, I must get a confirmation on that. I will be applying PPF (front+sides) on mine as my GT86 looked like someone unloaded shotgun into front after 4 years of ownership. I also plan to drive my car ~5kkm a year.
  21. That is very slick! Do you have link/brand of heavy duty velcro?

    He is predicting Evergrande not being able to pay up and chinese house of cards collapsing because of it. He is recommending to diversify into gold,silver,Bitcoin to weather the storm. Evergrande missed their next deadline to pay few days ago again. I really don't know what to think of current situation, it's pretty clear that something is about to pop. But this feeling can last for years. The current shortage issues are slowing down global production. There are no cars, no spare parts for trucks and forklifts. It's getting hard to buy descent computers. I'm never a pessimistic person, but something is really off in current situation. I'm sitting at 65% cash, 20% crypto, 15% stock funds. I'm mainly heavy on cash because of house construction imminent and waiting for Exige.
  23. I still haven't gotten any updates, car is now in production already 2 week. I think I need to forget the idea about driving it in October. How is your plumy doing @David Standing?
  24. Poor @David Standing everyone pestering him because of inside info
  25. @MattW sorry to hear that, I also wondered if there is any plan from Lotus to rectify this in some way. I wouldn't require much, just something that shows that they care. @David woo, that looks perfect. I doesn't look like it's going to be finished by the end of the week however. There is also a hint of yellow clams in the background right side. Might be mine
