New to the Lotus scene and just purchased a purple S2 elise, yes a purple aubergine elise that many on forums seem to hate! But each to their own and i love the colour.
I have a few rather boring questions i'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction?
1) Interior Trim - Just noticed part of the interior trim has a tear, is there a store that is generally not over priced that people use for parts? (its the panel that houses the speaker and light switches on the driver side)
2) Window Trim - The black exterior window seal appears to have had its day and has formed a bubbling effect, where best to purchase such a replacement item?...any pointers?
3) Tyres - Currently sitting on AD07 all round and i'm having to replace both sets of rears, a tad confused many here swear by AD08 but i won't be running it on a track nor do i want to be caught out in the rain. Its not my daily car but nor do I want to be rushing home as soon a dark cloud appears, I also don't wish to be replacing tyres every year and some say it doesn't wear well. Is AD07 a discontinued item and replaced by AD08's?
Would I be mad to consider putting on Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres on the rear?

It looks like my Exige has finally had a damper let go on the rear and needs replacing. I just wanted to gauge everyone's opinion on the options out there.
Do I just replace the Bilsteins like for like as I predominantly drive only on the road or do I go the whole hog and upgrade to the Nitrons as I do plan on the odd track day in the future?
Plus if I upgrade what's the best version to go to as I wouldn't want to make the ride stupidly harsh and overly track focused? Would you choose the street series or the NTR fast road version?

This is very strange and I have no idea????
I opened the car as normal with the fob and drove to work today but then the lock button on the fob would not work the immobilizer light lit after a short time as normal which the open button reset as normal but still no lock button. I thought it may be the actual button so when I got home I got the spare key out and this is the really strange bit its working in the exact the opposite way it will lock of this fob but wont unlock, so now I have to use both keys one will only lock it and the other will only unlock it. I've changed the battery just in case but as I expected there's no difference, I don't think its the keys.
Has anyone ever seen this and whats the repair?
Thanks in advance.

What I want is to get the paint in good condition so I can set about applying a couple of coats of good wax.
My question is, how do I do it? What products do I need? Is it a good idea to get some sort of mechanical polisher, and if so what type? Bearing in mind I am a novice and don't want to do any damage and I only really want to spend a day on it. I don't want to go mad.
Thanks in advance for your help guys.
