I think a lot of owners take the security bolts off as the cars are usually garaged and not daily drivers. They are a PITA to be honest.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

I replaced mine earlier this year due to the same issue since it is as cheap to buy a new set as a replacement key.

The evo5 set 983/5 as listed on ebay at about £30 fit a treat - I bought them from tdcautomotive who even went and measured them for me to confirm that the bolt heads were the correct (small) diameter to fit the Lotus wheels.

Thanks for the replies guys, I am going to ditch the security bolts and go for a new full set of standard ones. The current bolts are rusting so could do with replacing them anyway. I have purchased these:

Thanks Bruss, they look identical to the OEM shape so hopefully will fit ok.

Do you guys usually jack the car up to replace the bolts and then re-torque when back on the ground or just replace all bolts with the car on the ground one at a time?
