I'm tempted by this,

Which is better, ceramic or ppf? Vs cost?

They serve different purposes. Ppf is to stop stone chips. Ceramic is to seal in the paint, make it glassy and smooth and easy to clean, but it wont stop stones.

So I had ppf where I wanted it, then ceramic after, including over the ppf I believe. I was told ppf first, otherwise it doesnt stick properly to the ceramic.

Agreed, I've been informed ceramic is not as hard as I thought it was

Its also that the ppf is so much more thicker and soft, so it absorbs the stone shock.

Hi Imran: I know the car - it definitely doesnt have an LSD ... the Heel n Toe Blog guy doesnt own it - its owned by the owner of Laptime Tuning (Simon) a BMW & Porsche Tuner in Munich that recently ventured out into Lotus ... its currently for sale: 

https://m.mobile.de/fahrzeuge/details.html?id=271380038&utm_source=com.apple.UIKit.activity.CopyToPasteboard&utm_medium=ios

Looks like he is moving back to BMW and Porsche projects ... not enough money to be made in upgrading a Lotus ...

Also love the video btw - they guy seems to be a seriously good driver ... excellent car control skills ... prof race car driver?!?

How do you guys have this impression from seeing a camera showing a rather serious guy chewing a gum with some funny passengers in the car? :dizzy:

There are some other videos of him as well on his channel where he drives various cars - also on track w/o chewing a gum 😉

Ah, that makes it clearer - I was just really curious if I've missed something from the one above :rolleyes:

He definitely has good car control and it looks a lot of fun for him and his passengers, but that looks like it all happens on public roads.

Just spotted this on YouTube.

For some owners it's all about lap times, for others, it's all about the noise, drama and the pleasure of ownership of such a visceral super sports car..

The bloke is a complete hooligan on public roads but theres no denying it looks a blast, and then there's the noise!

It certainly made my tinkle fizz!

Im in this camp :) It is just a shame I dont have the skils of the driver in the video 😭 

Another video on the car has popped up. The desktop youtube site has an auto caption translate feature, so I’ll try that when I get the time to see if I can understand any of it
