  1. Well - sitting and waiting appeared to pay off.... I thought earlier that I'd not heard anything back from them - so put my reg into the checker, and now it's showing as being ULEZ compliant. If I log into my account I can't see any responses to my queries, but it looks like they have updated the database using the VCA link I posted way up top as proof of compliance Hopefully this will be helpful to anyone else if they run into this in the future
  2. Thanks for the comprehensive reply... I'm sure I'll have a crack at changing them at some point, but probably when the weather is a bit better and when I know I've got a lot more time to take over it!
  3. It looks like it's a sit and wait web form for queries over the incorrect database, with some phone numbers for contesting charges.. I was looking to see if the CoC was readily available as that's what they ask for to correct the database - a scan of your V5C and a copy of the CoC. I provided them with the V5C and a copy of the gov certification site above for the 400 with a hope that this would be enough... If the CoC was 'free' then I would have re-submitted with a copy of that as well. If it's £180 then I shall wait a bit then probably call them up and start pestering...
  4. £180 to correct TfL having incorrect data on their bloomin' database???? Ouch...
  5. So - outside of the 10 day response time from the TfL and.... No answer... Does anyone know how I can get a Euro 6 Certificate of Conformity from Lotus? Is there a friendly person I can email?
  6. How hard was it to remove the loom to the tweeter? Speaker upgrades are one of the items on my to-do list, and re-using existing wiring (and bypassing the capacitor) is much easier than trying to run new ones around the place.. As an update to my post, given some time driving round and some tinkering - for the filters for the front speakers (step 25) - if you start with somewhere around 100Hz and see how it sounds, then if you want a bit more bass / "fuller sound" reduce the number down in steps - where the settings for the front speakers and the sub overlap, it means that bass will be played via both sets of speakers, so you will get a bit more 'thump'. It's all a matter of personal preference though, so experiment and see what sounds best to you and the kind of music you like...
  7. I use cruise all of the time on the motorway. Although I actually find the Evora system quite frustrating as it doesn't have an 'engaged' indicator, and if you do re-engage it when you are at or slightly over the set speed it doesn't smoothly take over, it will drop 3-4mph fairly quickly, bimble for a bit and then climb back up again - which makes you think it's not engaged itself properly... The typical Japanese layout with set being the "+" and resume being the "-" also seems a bit more logical to me - and would have probably freed up space for steering wheel audio controls as cruise could be on one side and audio on the other..
  8. Have you pulled the tweeter out yet? In other cars I've seen a capacitor on the terminal of the tweeter to act as a passive crossover (to block low frequencies) - it could be that's what Lotus have done with the 400... Upgrading the speakers is on my list of things to do so interested in your findings! *edit* looking at the wiring diagram posted above, 'Tweeter Crossover 4.7uF' suggests that it is a capacitor - Farads is the unit of measurement for them...
  9. Thanks - newer V5Cs have a section for Euro Compliance, but not sure when it was added.. I'm hoping it's just a database error and it's easy enough to get them to update their records
  10. Does yours list Euro6 compliance on the V5C?
  11. Yup - I think it's just poor data in a database somewhere.. Hopefully it's not too painful to get it updated!
  12. I found the details for the 400 on the Gov Vehicle Certification Agency: Which lists Euro6 compliance. I've taken a pic of my V5C and a PDF of the website and submitted it to TFL, we will see if they accept it as proof! Wish me luck!
  13. Morning everyone, I just saw the advert on TV about the expansion of the low emissions zone in London, and put my Evora 400's reg into the checker to see what happens.... TFL don't show my car as being ULEZ compliant, so as far as they are concerned I would be liable. Looking at my V5C, it's not got a Euro emissions rating on it, just a CO2 value - but searching suggests that a 400 should be Euro6 compliant. You can register with them to get the details updated: Documents you need for proof All vehicles: A copy of the vehicle's V5C or non-UK equivalent Plus To prove your vehicle meets the ULEZ standards: A letter from the vehicle manufacturer's homologation department stating the vehicle's Euro standard or a conformity certificate Has anyone gone through this before to get a certificate of homologation from Lotus? Thanks! Jon
  14. I'd pull the front fascia off, undo the 4 screws and check that the connectors are all seated properly as a starter - should only take 10 mins or so. There's the connectors into the back of the head unit itself which are on a short loom, which itself has some connectors on the main Lotus wiring loom. I'd check both are properly seated...
  15. I think the car to head unit loom will be the same for the 920 and the 705D, so it should just plug straight in. It worked fine for me going from the factory 990, and the 920 is a newer model. It also looks like the 920 uses a loom for the reversing camera as well, so if the reversing camera works already, you may not need anything extra...
