  1. My point is that you stated that the 430 is a track focused car, moreover than the 410. My point is that this isn’t really the case.
  2. On what basis is the cup 430 more track focused ? It’s not like the old Lotus motorsport built cup cars. It is in essence a 410 with a larger wing, slightly upgraded aero and extra carbon with +20hp. Track times I suspect will be very similar. I prefer the look of the 430 cup and would consider one if the right example comes to the market. But I don’t think it’s any more track focused or vastly different to the 410. I do believe they will hold their value better being the last true analogue Lotus before the new era cars come online.
  3. Agreed that the cover looks cheap and nasty but if anyone can make it look better then I am sure @alias23 can. I will look to order once this has been completed via Imran.
  4. Super! Th aka for the insight. Will report back once it’s installed
  5. Hello! i am considering upgrading the head unit in the Exige 350. I like the look of the attached unit. I don’t think it will obstruct the vents or HAVC controls to much and it has a OEM feel to it. The apple car play really appeals to me. Being a complete layman, would this be a simple plug and play? I am confident enough to instal, but not if it’s plug and play. Grateful for any insight https://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductMobileDisplay?catalogId=10151&categoryId=318419&langId=-1&productId=1559475&storeId=10001
  6. I have to say your car looks simply stunning. Congratulations. I do much prefer the black colour for the wheels. Maybe not the actual wheel style but the colour.
  7. Would you say in your opinion it makes much difference over standard in terms of noise? I guess performance wouldn’t be noticeable with only a filter change
  8. Surely it feels different because it’s brand new v’s a car that had 20k+ on the clock. I think most of the difference is because it’s new. Anyway, great looking car and the front end looks much better with the new clam design.
  9. Sound like it’s going to look brilliant with a few classy additions / personal tweaks. Can’t wait to see the pictures 😀
  10. But some mechanical symphony is a good thing!
  11. Remind me to never buy a car from you 😂
  12. Stunning ! are you keeping the wheels silver or going black?
  13. Coming back to the fold Dan? Your new car looks stunning.... looking forward to seeing the pictures
  14. Great insight 👍 literally learn something new every day! I actually like the feature on my 350
  15. Nathan, what product did you use to clean up the inner arches and suspension etc?
  16. Scandal Green S160 on 12k miles... that’s a keeper! I am on the look out for a S160. Low mileage completely standard examples are hard to come across. I am sure you’re not planning on selling... but if you are 😀
  17. Not according to Greg - but happy to be proved wrong ! edit: yes they do amber turn lights on option 3 but it’s not the halo lights it’s the small dot that flashes. Doesn’t look nearly as good in my opinion.
  18. One of the reasons I selected the EU specific versions is I wanted it to be fully road legal and pass it’s MOT test (uk),therefore I selected the smoked lenses as I needed the indicator to be Amber in colour and not red ( you can’t have the red lenses and amber indicator unfortunately) and not wishing to scaremonger... if the lights aren't road legal then insurance companies need no excuses not to pay out if the worse happens. I was passive on the colour options. What I can say is the quality and service from Greg at GRP was brilliant.
  19. It’s standard from the factory. Most 350’s and upwards have this look. The letters are stickers.
  20. Hi. I have the GRP gt lights. They are smoked so they are road legal. I ordered the following. Option 6, added reflectors, all four lights running lights, brake light outer set and fog lights on the inner set. These are fully road legal for the UK and are plenty bright enough. GRP quality and service has been excellent. Very easy to deal with abs OEM quality finish. Some before and after pictures.
  21. Oh my.... not sure what to say! It’s certainly different. Can I ask, why do you want stickers of car part manufacturers? You do seem determined to cover your car in stickers! I originally thought you were joking and playing to the crowd on here ... clearly not! Bravery indeed! at the end of the day, it is your car and if you like it that’s all that really matters. We all like different things in life.
  22. You certainly have some... original mods on your car
  23. If you’re going down the route of replacing rear clams etc then the cost will get pretty scary. The 380 is the best looking Exige in my opinion. I have added some subtle mods to mine based on the 380 that have improved the looks. I like the front access panel and other details , but the gap between the 350 and 380 isn’t that huge and something I may consider in the future.
  24. So the dealer programmed this so it transferred the correct mileage from your old cluster to your new one ?
