  1. Ive had both gearboxes, the main difference is on the motorway where its an advantage, the rest of the time, tbh you get used to it as you would any other car, so nothing to be concerned about. The colour is great, ive always found peoples reactions to lotus are pretty much always positive compared to other brands. With the spec , service history and it being local, i say its fate, go buy it!

    In love again

    You drive to the city, fly her out for the weekend and back, you drive home. Everyone wins!
  3. Ive had back problems all my life after a motorbike crash as a teenager. When I got my first elise I got back ache every trip due to the lack of power steering. Once it got use to it and it strengthend up it was ok. If i was going through a bad patch with my back, getting in and out could be tricky but driving was fine. Ive driven many 1000's of miles in exiges and elises round europe etc and always got out without issue. The seats sometime dont feel right at first but I always presumed were ergonomically set correctly so once you adjust to them, they were fine. In contrast my mum had a rover
  4. Maybe they are all smoking the same stuff as the boss
  5. I bet theyve tapped it into the nearest lampost in the road
  6. I personally think its a good thing and there is definitely a mrket for them. The L&Co Zero looks well and suspiciously like the Lotus offering as mentioned above. I was just checking Porsches 2019 production figures the other day. I knew they made more 4x4 than sports cars but didnt realise just what proportion it was. 274k vehicles produced in 2019, 54k were sports cars (911, caymen, boxter), a few panamera (cant remember the numbers) but the rest were the cayenne and macan! So only a 5th of their production is sports cars that mental. No wounder theyve all jumped on the band wagon.
  7. On top, just kneel in the boot. You dont want the socket that looks like a normal socket but the one that looks like a figure 8, where your bar goes next to the socket. Its obvious what i mean if you look on ebay.
  8. Ive replaced mine a few weeks back. By a standard bosch sensor and a socket kit and it will be less than lotus price for the sensor. You will need to remove the heat shield, the rhs bolt/nut isn't captive so just be a little careful. You may need a bar to loosen the old one. Shouldnt take more than an hour.
  9. Im on my 9th but this has stalled for now as I cant find anything to replace my GTE in the current lotus lineup! Im guessing its a keeper then! Gav
  10. Mine is nightfall and the code is c105, there may have been a b105 but cant remember. Had mine mixed at halfords.
  11. Im not convinced they have a valve in them, I think they just rely on water pressure to pop them up. If I had to guess It sounds like they were both full of crap but it blew one of them clear but not the other. Could you take the pipe of, gently lift the washer and butt an air line upto it to blow the crap back out the way it came in? Bare in mind, this advice comes from a person who repaired his mini head light washers with part of a nurf gun bullit! Gav
