  1. Which engine oil are you using for your Exige? There is run-in service coming soon for my 390 and I wanted to ask here if you just put their branded/recommended one or you bring something better with you? I assume I will be doing mostly road driving with 4-5 trackdays yearly.
  2. I see noone posted Solid Yellow
  3. Do we already know how UI looks likem, if GPS is connected and track is loaded. Do you see live lap timer on FE dash or at least pinged lap time after lap completed?
  4. Still haven't done break-in. But I have an idea, does this happen in tour only or in sport aswell. Tour and sport have different rev limits I think (6800 and 7200), maybe revlights are setup propely for sport. However that would be quite bad.
  5. Got the switch today, nut and oring included. Ordered from elise-shop in EU, they got part delivered from UK in december.
  6. I'm up for group buy, or does anyone know to buy it in EU?
  7. That seems crazy. Like others have stated, cut is really simple and clips are cheap. My dealer priced labour time to 220 eur (tax included) or less to do the conversion.
  8. Where did you get that quote, my dealer gave me significantly lower quote. Like 5 times lower.
  9. My plate holder looks completely different. It's highier up (plate covers tow hook)
  10. That doesn't make a lot of sense. Is that only in your country or worldwide?
  11. There will be few people getting Certificate of Provenance I assume on final editions. Anyone has already ordered it? That way we can at least get numbers on FEs.
  12. In my country it's not allowed to drive on non-homologated tire sizes. I am not even allowed to put 285s on 390 FE as it's been only homologated for 265s. Quite few countries in Europe follow similar rules. You would fail our version of MOT (but there is no MOT for first 4 years), however if police stops you and check tires (they sometimes do if they are picky) you can get request to take car to MOT as they assume it's not road worthy.
  13. Do they thou? I would have guessed that all cars are done and some people are waiting for them to get shipped overseas or leave the storage facility. I might be wrong thou.
  14. Someone on Facebook group mentioned he has information that FE TFT panel will soon be able to be flashed to AiM software. Not sure i would be interested in that thou, I really like simple ui style of FE TFT.
  15. Thanks for feedback everyone. I drove 300km in few days, PPF got installed, lowered seat rails for "tactical lizard" made my seating position much better. And today I've removed lower cowl to find exhaust flap connector, it was there and by touching two pins together with a wire TFT screen shown "exhaust open" text. Looks like I got lucky. Engine sounded brutal when softly reving it in a garage. Video for proof However I would like to add that after starting the car I have yellow wrench light showing up on dash and disapperaring after 10s. I guess it didn't like my fidling with wire too much, I think it just needs to be cleared as I probably did a bit too many open-closes in short time. I will be ordering OEM switch. On the other note, I've checked TFT settings and I found out there is TRACK & GPS setting disabled. That gives me some hope there will be software update possible to add that.
  16. Thanks for reply. I've thought so aswell, prettymuch there to stay. I'll forget it in a month. In few years when there is plenty of scratches I will just carpet it If anyone still know a way that doesn't do more harm than good, feel free to help.
  17. This week when I left the car at shop to do PPF, install radio and change seat rails to lower ones, they scratched aluminium panels a bit. They pointed at the issue straight away. I'm not too fussed about and they are really apologetic and they want to make things right. Is there any way of fixing this or making it less obvious? Or should I just forget? It's on driver side, but you really can't see it if you aren't looking for it, so I'm willing to just let it go.
  18. Holder/mount is integrated into this Pioneer unit. Unit also has options to connect the phone to radio and control the unit this way. Works quite well, I wouldn't say perfect, but it's not overally expensive and looks decent. Check this video, timestamp included (6:50)
  19. I will be installing this radio, same one as I have in my other car. Mount is very stable and nicely positioned in elige. I can post picture when I get it. Pictures from Pauls Exige thread:
  20. I'm quite tall, 189cm. When I sit normally in a comfortable driving position there is only one finger of space between my leg and steering wheel on the left (window side), while there is 3 fingers of space on the right. It doesn't bother me while driving, but it's a thing that I noticed. The seats are a bit wide, so I found myself moving to the left a bit. I never had to do that in any previous car. I think mostly my height is the issue here. I think it will be helpful when I drop the seat down a bit, I already have Tactical Lizards's rails at home.
  21. Very special day for me, it took long time and weather was hoooooorible for the first drive, but I just can't stop smiling. At dealership they made the experience really nice and I can't thank them enough for me. They also helped with getting the car on tow truck, which would be scary as hell for me as I haven't ever driven an Exige or ever seen one in my life prior to today. I've been vocal on these forums about being worried about my color choice, I don't have any regrets now, I've seen Daytona Blue and Vivid Green there - I like them, but I love the yellow! Stuff that surprised me: - It's a lot easier to get in and out than I thought it will be (I'm in my early 30s however ) - Seats are quite hard and wheel is noticable off-center - TFT screen is tiny.. it's big enough, just I didn't expect it. - The shifter click in soooo satisfying - Car feels very quick (not really a surprise) - Car is less spartan than I thought, it's quite a pleasant ride when you don't want a thrill. Even my gf said that - The cold-start roar!
  22. Now that you have mentioned... i also want a headless unit that fits under radio blanking plate.
  23. Looks like my car will be ready next week for pickup, Lotus factory has sent new non-blackpack parts and they are being these days. Do you have any beginner advices for new owner? It's going to be my first Lotus (I've only driven one Elise few years ago, I've never seen Exige in real life). It's going to be my first >200hp car. Sadly it's going to be parked in public, but quite empty and secure parking garage till the house gets finished (approx 1 year). I bought a cover for it (Stormforce). How is battery management during winter? I'm going to drive it winter a bit, but only with nice weather and when there is not too much salt out there. It's going to get PPFed in first month.
