  1. It’s the AiM camera: https://www.aimshop.com/products/aim-mirror-reversing-camera-for-mx-series-pdm?pr_prod_strat=copurchase&pr_rec_id=933e20cea&pr_rec_pid=1602582970470&pr_ref_pid=4405161787494&pr_seq=uniform I’m not surprised at the Lotus response to the camera requests. AiM announced the MX2e for the Lotus Elise back around Jan/Feb 2020. My car was in build at that point, delivery due March 2020 and we all know what happened then🙄. As soon as I saw the unit advertised I contacted Lotus and asked it, Lotus responded by saying that it wasn’t a Lotus product and fitting it would affect my warranty in respect of anything connected to it😦. May 2020 arrived and my car was still locked inside Hethel half built and then Lotus announced that the AiM dash was now a fully supported product.. I contacted Jamie at B&C and he managed to get a unit to fit on my car pre delivery, the car was finally delivered June. I don’t think B&C had actually fitted one because I remember them ringing me and asking where I wanted the rear view camera fitting. Delivery of my car was late but I wouldn’t have purchased the AiM unit after delivery so it was a good thing in a way😄
  2. "Any chance of a photo? I have typically seen them in the upper part of the diffuser trim but I was never sure they would last due to the heat fro the exhaust." Mine on my Elise. Been on for two years now and no problems so far.
  3. Mine is mounted just above the rear number plate, I wasn’t going to bother with the reversing camera originally but went with it in the end due to it being so small and pretty much unnoticeable. I wouldn’t be without it now, comes in very handy. Poor show on Lotus re the FE’s though🙄
  4. Thanks, for the guide, even I should be able to follow that👏👏👍
  5. How do you add the on/off numpty guide if possible?, I have lowered my unit so I can see the indicators but I still manage to leave the damn things on every now and again…I’m thinking belt and braces🙄
  6. Probably just treating it as per the old Stack/Sherlock units. As you say, if it breaks just replace it. Although, that’s pretty much what you would have to do with a broken MX2 unit…🤔
  7. Have a trawl through this thread, there is a way of having the word “on” and “off” light up lower down in the unit when the indicators are working, not ideal but at least it tells you the indicators are in action. I have no idea how you get it to do this but it is possible. I’m 6’1” and had trouble seeing the limit lights and indicators, I dropped the dash down in the binnacle which sorted the problem… I posted up on this thread about it so that may help?
  8. Mine comes on at the quarter mark so I’d say around 8 litres left in the tank, which is way too soon, and very annoying if you suffer “idiot light ocd” like myself.
  9. I’ve finally found time to finish the repositioning of my AiM unit today. I’ve cast a plastic finisher for the top of the unit which can be seen here before replacing the binnacle, it fills the gap nicely and to be honest if you didn’t know you really couldn’t tell it’s not original. The picture below shows the final line of sight for me, as close as I can get anyway. I am 6’1” and the car is a Cup 250 so it has the carbon seats. I looked into raising the steering column but the top shroud is very close to the wheel boss and it would mean grinding some of this away, unless the wheel was extended towards the driver with an extension boss, extra cost and i don’t actually need it closer. Very happy with the finished position and look👍
  10. I had the bezel off today and checked out raising the steering wheel. Its easy enough to do but unless you fit a spacer then your going to have to cut the top bezel plate, therefore it’s a non starter for me.
  11. I’ve got to take the column shroud off to fit the new gap infil so I’ll take a closer look when I do that. It might be that I can reduce the height of the infil? thanks for posting this up👍
