  1. It may be worth plugging in another camera to the rear of the head unit just to confirm the fault is external to it? It does sound like its the camera to me as other  wise as you mentioned it would be a case of picture or no picture. Is it an Alpine head unit as they had some module near the sub (i think) for the camera. Or you could try one of the wireless ones that get power from the reverse light?


  2. 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! 

  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 400 years ago and I couldnt travel a mile in that before getting back ache!

    Thats why I love the comfy sofas that are the recaro seats in the evora!

  4. 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.

  5. 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!


  6. Ive just replaced an o2 sensor which had thrown a code. However its still stalled a few times (its an ips) and ran rough a few times. Its was on 1/4 tank of v power. Its ben refueld a few rimes over lock down but this fuel may be 2? Months old. I filled it up yestetday and after 5 mins has run fine for the 400 miles ive done today.
