  17. when i bought my s1 a few months ago i changed the oil and filter,there was a fram ph 16 in it so i replaced it with the same,,200 miles later ,i lost oil pressure ,after talking with tony k, i replaced the filter with a lotus filter,,upon inspection, the seal inside the fram filter had come loose blocking oil flow,,the first fram filter i changed was still in my garage, after checking that one, it too had the seal come loose,,,i,d stay far away from these,,i,ll take some pics if anybody has any doubts,,,
  18. i do the same thing with my s1,,just a little press on the throttle,and she fires right up ,,the engine cover in an s1 is basically an easy bake engine cover,,lol...
