Depends what you're after Ollie, but please don't say more power ;-)

I quite like the race look of logo'd tyres, but haven't done it yet due to the stick i know i'll get !!

I'm after ideas for handling upgrades are they worth it.
Is there a nice exhaust system to go for or are you as well getting one custom built.
I don't want to alter the exterior with carbon or splitters etc.
so really handling upgrades Yayyy or Nayyyy

What air box are you using as well.
Suspension wise is the Nitron good or are you better of with Bilstein or Ohlins or Gaz to many to choose from .
I've got the 4pots so there covered.
What are rough prices for a 260bhp upgrade I'd happily take more power haven't enough Wonga though

I've got a 2bular, they are straight through designs so they sound good. They are as loud as you choose as he does different diameter and length. I've got the biggest gt3 style as i want to be able to pass sound tests at tracks but it still sounds really good (esp. on second cam) and it doesn't drone at all. As said its also much lighter than standard - I sometimes wonder if lotus designed the rear exhaust as part of the rear crash structure it is so heavy !!
The best upgrades i have done to mine which would be relevent to you are:
A good geo setting buy a local specialist (can make a huge difference)
4 point harness (it means you use the steering wheel for steering, not holding onto in quick corners!!)
uprated dampers (i've got one way nitrons) (do uprated arb at the same time)
As yours is SC i'd use the TRD airfilter kit, pretty cheap and very good. http://www.seriously...and-filter.html

I think it looks mega on Esprit's S1 with TMR's.
Dean, have you heard or seen the posts relating to CL's disintegrateing in the callipers? Not a criticism to you mate but it puts me right off.
I'm all for Ohlins personally Ollie, I've never tried Nitrons but those are the two main S2 culprits and the new Nitrons are having particularly good reviews, especially 46mm's. lol but I'd still buy Ohlins ;-). Powerwise speak to Christpher Neil's Lotus, all good stuff, Lotus Approved and priced very well indeed. There are other after market ways to increase power but it really depends on residuals should you decide to sell or if you plan to keep.
