Over 12 years in...

I managed to get a carbon engine cover and front access panel which along with the Mansory Carbon rear spoiler saves ~5kg. Also as said, easy to swap for the standard bits as and when. 

Trying to currently get the windscreen replaced, but as others may have already had the (dis)pleasure of arranging I'm currently awaiting a 3rd visit to try and get it done. The amount of advice I've given to try and help them seems to have fallen on deaf ears or just not passed on to relevant people. Fingers crossed for "3rd times a charm". I'm glad my MOT has been extended for 6 months, at this rate they'll be using all that time before it's sorted. 😁

@JAWS feel your pain re the Windscreen.  The windscreen on my brand new Evora 410 Sport started to delaminate at the bottom after only a few months and Lotus agreed, with no fuss I might add, to replace it with a new one.

Had to wait a few weeks but it eventually arrived and the dealer (Leven in Edinburgh) fitted it. They really fcuked up the A Pillars and when I got the car back they were a mess, so I then needed for it to go back to get the A pillars sorted.

Well, whilst sorting them the dealers mechanic somehow managed to crack the windscreen!   Arghhhhh.  So had to wait more time for a new windscreen to be ordered and fitted at the dealers expense.  Everything is good now, but the car is on it's third windscreen in such a short life...  You could not have made it up at the time...

I came into this world screaming and covered in someone elses blood. I'll probably leave it in the same way.

I use Old School Windscreens in Surrey. Even for my daily wagons, I just pay them to fit a screen. AutoGlass and all that mobile mob are generally bad. 

Main dealers usual sub these jobs out...so it is pot luck unless they use a real pro. 

Old School are usually ace at finding screens too. They found one for my XJ6 when everyone else said 'not available'. And a Fiat 128 screen too. 

Proper people.

How do you explain this big rear tire wear?

If I remember rightly,  the 400 is not affected like the previous generation. 

It is due to the suspension geometry? Or it is a setup only?

Thank you

It's an S1

I know that it is a S1, I was asking if there were suspension changes between the 400 and the previous generation or if it was a setup (different angles) matter only.

It's less that it's a 400 improvement more a switch to Michelin when the 400 came.out.

My current set are Michelin S4S and they seem to be slightly better in wear but not a massive difference.

As above, I do have a heavy right foot 😊 so probably just my driving style.
