- I installed the higher windscreen now - it is for taller people (I am 1,86) a big advantage

Ralf, I have seen the high windscreen option in the Lotus 2-Eleven brochure, but I have never seen one with this installed.

Could you post some pictures of the car with that installed?

Vielen Danken, ciao

P.S. enjoy the car ;)

If you look at the pictures of my car in the Owners garage there is a picture with the taller screen fitted.

Thanks Paul. So the size of the "taller" screen is pretty much that of an UK Tax disc. I was expecting something taller, say the size of the perspex screen of the original Lotus Eleven. This car is truly mental...

Ralf, look forward your pictures either.

BTW - might be wrong, but it looks to me that most of the 2-Elevn are thus equipped with the "taller" screen, aren' t they?

No, road going 2 eleven's have the standard screen. This apparantly is the tallest that was allowed in order to pass the SVA test for type approval. The new "taller" screen is only 2.5cm higher but makes a difference in that in reduces some of the bufferting at speed.

Thank you Paul, I'm surprised of the difference between the screens, but I bow to your direct experience.

On the other hand I gave up to understand rules for SVA...

Cheers

Wipers, demister on a 2-Eleven? Thee people reaaaly think rubbish.

We have to cheer still do exist car makers, like Lotus, producing cars and not super-safe "appliances".

Not sure the lead is long enough - after all the pimpmobile is so much faster than the 2-11 ;)

Still seems crazy that even the taller wind deflector which of not strictly road legal could possibly need wipers anyway.

Comments Jo !!!

Guess rules are rules though however crass.

SVA rules say that if you look THROUGH a screen it has to be cleaned by wipers and has to have a demisting capability...

This is the bottom line I guess.

Ralf, sorry for having steered the thread in a totally different direction - still grinning I guess?
