Ha - but....did you like the car though?🤔🤞

Where was the car when you saw it? In the workshop or in the showroom Alan? There will still be a few bubbles visible but apparently they can take up to around 4 weeks to disappear completely.......and not to be touched until they’ve gone. The join on the edge of the front clam is my favourite part and very impressive how it’s done.👏

I thought it was a shed 😆😆😆 You know what I never stepped back and looked at the car as a whole as was looking at little details. Certainly jealous of your wing. Then got distracted by the Exige Cup 430.

It was in the workshop getting your Under seal treatment  put on.

I am using the same installer as Stephen. When I requested info on PPF he sent an email about the potential down side so you can make an informed choice which I thought was good. For me a dark colour with potential white base coat makes it a must.

Interestingly, the running in had changed... the manual doesn’t mention 4k limits any more and only 600miles not the 1000 it used to be.

Interesting it says that short bursts above 4K will even be beneficial.

It’s the manual that is shared for Elise AND Exige.

Also of interest, is the warranty Status...

”Lotus models are designed as road going sports cars. It is recognised that some owners with to use their cars occasionally on closed circuits or private test tracks in order to experience the cars full range of dynamic capabilities, and indeed the specification of some models has been optimised for such activities.

Lotus is pleased to maintain vehicle warranty coverage for reasonable Non-Competitive use in this manner.”

Their bold text, but certainly makes things a lot clearer than it used to be.
