LF1 Registry

Recommended Posts

Even though I've now got one in my garage I never get tired of looking at pictures of the LF1 :)

Nice one Smuzzy.

I've just spent a small fortune on detailing products for mine, here's hoping for a dry weekend.

I thought you had someone detail it before you collected?

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

I did, but he sent me a list of products that I should use to help keep on top of it.

Actually on that subject, today I had the chance to put my car next to a LF1 that hadn't been detailed yet, the difference was quite noticeable, the main thing was how it bought the gold fleck out in the paint + the overall shine, most definitely recommended.

I did say that I would give the guy that I used a shout out on here, hope that is OK, his name is Francis Maloney, actually recommended by Lotus Silverstone, did a cracking job + he gave me loads of tips on how to keep it in tip top condition -

If anyone is considering getting their car detailed I'd definitely give him a call.

Finally some new pictures - awesome!

Am i the only person with an LF1 and without a private plate?

You're ok Tom, I haven't gone down that road yet, here are a couple of pics of my adventures today, it would almost be comical if the tyres didn't cost so much

Really didn't think this would be the first picture I would post of my new car

It certainly wasn't a small screw, I was up and out at 7am this morning sweeping the drive for 2 hours to hopefully stop it happening again

IMG_0954_zps5154b29d.jpg

I got my LF1 goodies today also, didn't realise that they would come in a LF1 box and a LF1 book, really impressed with the page all about the win the car commemorates, top job Lotus :)

Great to see people collecting their new LF1 's, just remember chaps make sure you spray ACF 50 onto your front and rear wishbones.

Did you get your usb f1, card for merch discount and vouchers for factory visits?

I got the USB, key ring, helmet & membership card for discount but nothing to do with the factory visits yet, really looking forward to the F1 factory visit, hopefully it will be next year sometime when Lotus are having a better season :)

Is your helmet mouldy?  ;)

Mine is  :thumbdown:

As was at least one other at the dealers.................

Factory visit..... no date yet for mine, the only problem with going next year is that the 2015 livery may have little if any resemblance to the LF1 (No private plate on mine)

Nice Pic :)

I haven't checked the helmet to be fair, not the biggest Grosjean fan, but I will have a look tonight.

Nobody wants a mouldy helmet ;)

Richard, we need to co-ordinate the F1 factory visit, may as well do a Yorkie outing and make a couple of days of it with wine, beer and food?

Sounds good to me, I've had an e-mail to say they are waiting for dates from the team,

Personally I'd like to go sooner rather than later if possible so that the car still has some relevance to the F1 team....

Will let you know what dates they come back with (not expecting a quick reply though everything seems to take forever)

Thanks Steve.

Silly question I know, but, on the s2 exige it was possible to take the roof off, not easy but possible. Is this still the case with the v6 exige? I am thinking specifically about the LF1.

Mod edit - Your posts are in the correct section in a new topic here...
