  1. GFWilliams Liquid Yellow Exige S

    Is the alcantara on the dash going to match the other Alcantara in the car already - it looks darker than the car material or is that just the photos?
  2. Time to start explaining

    Brilliant Barry - well done mate!
  3. GFWilliams Liquid Yellow Exige S

    Love the dash George - how much?

    I’d say yellow circle - the red clashes a bit with the yellow stitching.....but red might work......you'll know yourself. Go with your gut - I’d need to see in situ before knowing for sure. Good luck with whatever you choose...they look great as they are but I’ve always liked them as I have them in my A-Class. Edit : I think red now too
  5. Yup one on the left definitely original and I would think will match the one on your steering wheel assuming that’s original Like you Fabian I believe detail is either right or wrong there’s no inbetween, otherwise where do you go. Not to Miami to compare the Fire Red paint that’s for sure - why would you bother, but you did to get it right......it’s all in the detail and that will make yours the best it can be. Turbo Esprit decals are the other thing that need to be right - when they’re wrong a blind man would notice
  6. Pricey - but it is my personal favourite.....it’s the angled uprights that do it for me. But that’s a lot of dosh. Mind you I’ve just specced my 380 Sport with full carbon......but it’s a bit easier when you’re buying as part of the car!
  7. That doesn’t come as a surprise - Lotus seem to change suppliers by the half hour! Maybe it’s a way of spreading out their debts......which is hopefully a thing of the past
  8. You’ll notice the lettering shape on the originals is slightly different to the replicas too - I first noticed that from my steering wheel as the early back badges lettering is identical to the original wheel badge you’ve got there. It’s a subtle difference but still distinctive
  9. I have a 2016 Exige Sport 350 with a battery that looks to have been fitted from the factory. It is one of these - 075SP model
  10. New car

    Wow - those are big numbers Brooke! Very rare low mileage variant though. Confident?
  11. Cheap Esprit S4S

    I am just wondering why, if it was any good at all.....surely Mark would have taken it on himself to turnaround and then sell? Maybe it’s as simple though as he doesn’t deal with insurance write-offs of course, as there’s no getting away from the fact they do carry a value stripping stigma.
  12. Cheap Esprit S4S

    There’s an elephant in the room here........is someone going to ask the question?
  13. Canyon Red Exige V6 Cup

    That steering wheel looks superbly chunky Arun - love it!!!
  14. Big Wing V6 - Register

    That is one cool machine! Rear wing maybe a tad wide for my eye but still super cool!
  15. Transforged Afterburner Rear Lights

    Yes the centres do, from what I understand. George had a new upgraded set supplied recently and they apparently provide a more orange light than his first set. They are nice aren’t they! What’s the chances of pulling together with a few others for a group deal.......maybe that would provide more of an incentive to purchase cheaper?
