    Elite/Eclat/Excel picture thread!

    Thank you. No, the VX220 is longer in ownership. The Elan is gone, because of family expansion. Was a cracking car and broke the heart of my wife for letting it go, but 2 two seater make no sense by the moment. Truly underestimated Lotus like the 4seater as well

    Did I ever post this one of my ex Excel?
  3. More 4-5k€, with the damage and your findings more likely 4K if the chassi was changed back in her days. with the led day lights only 3k😳
  4. Hi Daniel, it's not so easy because the S1 got some serious updates in his second half with the side mirrors and frontspoiler, different aircon etc. But it is an interesting question because I haven't read anything like this. So let's start a summary (I do love this kind of game.) i see Duncan has already answered... so not much to add. the position of the battery front to back ( but I don't know whether this is done on the later S1 as well different gauges and binnacle were also changed in the S1 era position of the inside mirror also since facelift S1 waterreservoir Tube also sind facelift S1 of course the 912 engine with lumenition ignition different switches and centre console different seat reclining IIRC as well a S1 facelift feature? not to forget the Riviera option 😎 diffent wheels with different stud diameter new badges (very important! 😎) no 501-504 etc. Line up anymore. Everything could be ordered. new interior fabric and combinations digital clock new interior switch lighting (jag system)
  5. The stock S1 gear box is prone to break. So you don't want to put this box in the mightier S2.2. The Getrag is a real joy to handle. Don't mess around with the S1...
  6. It has been done before πŸ™„ so don't worry πŸ˜‰
  7. There is soo much to see... and if you stay that long, no visit to highlands, Lake District and of course Mike?? oh and every time we are there we get a decent sun burn... just saying ;-)

    @Testdriver maybe you should check your geo or air pressure... I have not a too light feel in the Eclat and so hadn't in the Excel. When my M100 was aligned properly I felt someone has the power steering thrown of the engine bay. It was such a tremendous difference.

    Thanks Jean, the interior is not in a top condition. I have tried to make it more usable and after this, it had to be overhauled for the complete front seats, the dash and the A pillar. But due to a change in my personal situation it will not be done in the next 1-2 years. Until this, I will use it in this state nevertheless. It does too much fun and of course they suffer from not being used.

    Seems to me, that your car is slightly blowing.... Time for some additions too.

    crankcase breather

    For the can, place it not high on the wing. It should sit below the points where the tubes are connected. Otherwise the remains go back in the engine. I know it is sad because if the shiny bit... ;-) please show a picture of your solution

    Belt configuration

    Maybe one the reasons is, that unfortunately Steve doesn't supply the right belt for this at least for my S22. It is to long. I have now 3 of them in my parts bin
  13. Indeed, the instrument cluster is from a MY85 Excel because the stock layout is complete useless with the most important OEM gauge out of the view of the driver. It ruins of course a bit of the interior design but for the health of the engine sake, this is worth it. The steering wheel instead is a genuine option of the price list and feels very good when cornering
  14. Clive: like this, hope you can identify it
  15. Interesting... you have a different clock than mine... did you get the air blades fixed? I have rusty box of a S1 in spare, if that helps to combine parts somehow.
