That’s good to hear.  What was the total cost of the new parts?

@Daveb99 they cost me £36 inc vat, my cars out of warranty so I had to pay for mine but that’s ok as the fix works.

Such a simple fix makes a massive difference to the general feeling when sitting in the car.

Im told by the dealership the car has to be returned to Lotus for up to 4 weeks so that Recaro can rectify the issue. Problem is.. mine is a daily use car so will Lotus provide a courtesy car?? Mm.. 🤔

Would cost me 65 euros with shipping for 2 pieces of metal 🙄 

Anyone knows exact thickness and length of it ?😉

Just to add to the list, I had these metal strips fitted today. They have made the seat rock solid but the slight downside is that the seat is now stiffer to slide back and forth. Happy to put up with that for a solid seat though.

I do not have a problem with my seat but would rather do it .. Do you need to get the seat out to do it ??

I ordered mine today from @Seriouslylotus who had stock and didn’t rob me! A lot cheaper option than what my local dealer tried to charge me and what I dare say a few owners have paid on this thread.

Anyone had any restriction in moving the seat all way back after installing these?
