  1. Learn how to do it the manual way.... it’s not difficult and can be pretty rewarding. i am not sure these devices do much good for the car.
  2. Yes you will need the fitting kit. They attach to the little balls you mention. There are also other brackets needed for the lower cam cover. The full kit is about £80. You will need this for sure. You can buy it on Elise shop or use the part numbers there and buy direct from Deroure for a small saving.
  3. I think it’s colour dependant to an extent. in my chrome orange S2 Exige the attention was constant. In my black S3 350 the attention is much less.... which I prefer. When I park or fill up with petrol I tend to be left alone. I do notice younger women who are impressed with expensive cars always double take and smile.... until they see a 40 something average guy driving and then look a tad disappointed 😂😂
  4. That’s super quick. However, there are a lot of bad drivers there and some of the overtaking was simply dangerous. Weaving between cars mid corner and off the track to overtake is not good at all
  5. @MrP_ done the same install and cut down the indicator so it didn’t catch when it flipped out. I can’t locate the thread!
  6. Looks fantastic. please tell me they haven’t actually drilled through the rear clam to attach the number plate ?
  7. This is great news. I was one of the moaners, so I am delighted it’s been resolved. Let’s hope the showroom and facilities are fitting of the brand. Parks deal with some pretty prestigious marques so I don’t have any doubts it will be nothing other than very professional. Gutted it’s not in Edinburgh, but that’s my very selfish view point! At least we have Craig Moncreieff as a brilliant independent.
  8. Hello, I have recently acquired a SVA sport 160 to accompany my Exige 350. it’s a great low mileage example, but needs a little work to make it perfect. It’s a little project and I hope a keeper. as with any 20 year old Lotus, it has a fair amount of stone chips on the front clam and the lower sills. I am looking for a lotus friendly body shop in Edinburgh or Midlothian. Does anyone have any recommendations?
  9. Not all Exige’s came with cruise control. Mine doesn’t have it so it makes this conversion very easy
  10. Now I would be impressed if you can get the logos on there. I checked with Dan at divine handcraft and he couldn’t help, but hadn’t considered laser engraving. the OEM stalks are just awful, would be great if you can make this solution work ... then I can copy you ! 😂
  11. Congratulations. Pictures up on here please as soon as you get it 👍 what is the lead time ?
  12. @Screem wow... simply stunning! i have to ask.... what’s up the stairs... or perhaps I shouldn’t ask 🤪😂
  13. I am pretty sure it’s a carpet that’s been used. Good solution it would seem
  14. Wow. Not sure what else to say!!. Simply stunning. Can’t wait to see more pictures
  15. My understanding is that this can’t be done by dealers. Many folks who have suffered faulty dash’s in the past got a new one from Lotus. The new one came with 0 miles and paperwork to state the mileage at the point of swap out. This was a few years ago, it may have changed but I would be doubtful. I am sure some companies will be able to change the dash for you, but it would cost money and is staying in to a dodgy area. I think the best way around this would be to sell the dash with car and therefore all the mileage will link up. regarding your point on insurance and
