  1. Morning all... pleased to say that after 12 months without a Lotus in my life I finally have another (rather special) Elise in the garage. Took delivery of a vivid green Cup 250 Final Edition around six weeks ago and have been smiling ever since 😄 On the direct instruction of Ray (😉), I've included a couple of pics below (if you're on Instagram there are plenty more if you're interested - http://instagram.com/kerm111t/). We'll also be posting a video about the car on the One Eleven Cars YouTube channel in the next couple of weeks (if you're not already subscribed we'd really apprecia

  2. Another week has gone by and the Evora delivered in spades on a 300-mile round trip to Hethel for our MLOC tour of Classic Team Lotus. The afternoon before the trip I decided on the spur of the moment to wrap the sills in gloss black. Don’t ask me why, I just decided to get on with it! Took this at Ketteringham Hall, home to Team Lotus F1 back in the 1970's. I’m loving the black sills look and am planning to do the front splitter - possibly today - but not the roof, I quite like that in silver with the diamond cut wheels.

  6. I always loved the 1.5litre turbo F1 era…these jewels producing up to 1000bhp in race trim and supposedly up to 1500 for qualifying! I wonder what this is like inside?

  7. I agree. I surprised myself on Sunday on the Classic Team Lotus visit…270 miles at the speed limit on fast dual carriageway/motorways (not my choice of Elise road but that’s the way Tom Tom sent me!) inc some ‘spirited’ driving for the last 25 miles home across the Peak District…..brim-to-brim refuel gave 52mpg!! From a 23-yr old S1 k-series with 63k miles roof off and windows down!

  15. Ok great. I sold my 111r in January then things went crazy after the Lotus announcment (ending Elise/Exige etc) and with a bit of faffing on my part I missed out on a few that in hinsight I should have just taken the plunge, but a huge amount of money (to me) to spend on a toy! Good luck with the hunt for the replacement. 👍

  16. Sorry to see you leave. I have just returned to Lotus ownership after 8 long months without! I just brought almost exactly what you've just sold! Was yours the January calendar picture? Mark

  17. So we’re off tomorrow to our tour of Classic Lotus, I’m thinking I should spruce up the Cup for its visit back home 🤔 A bit of TLC with a full wheel off valet to make sure she looks her best! So with the first two wheels of get to work on the inner arches whilst the wheels were off took the time to do those nuts and ever battered side skirts aero snow foam time 😜 might have overdone it a bit! quick dry and polish and she’s looking lots better As we’re traveling so far (motorways etc) I

  19. So having wrapped the sills I decided to have a go at the front splitter. Boy, that was tricky. A specialist pro place told me a while ago it would need to be done in 2 pieces - top and underneath - and quoted me £250. No thanks……I managed it in one piece, using about £5 worth of top quality wrap! I do now need to empty the swear box though….. After removing the number plate plinth you can wrap each side separately. There’s no need to wrap the bit behind the plinth and it’s much easier handling shorter lengths of this stuff…👍🏻 So far the sills and splitter have cost about

  21. Just completed the NC500 (third time) in my S3 Elise S. 1470 miles 45.1 mpg! Not bad eh? 70-80 on M6, low gears on single track roads. Don't think my moggie 1000 would have done that well, hahaha. Love my Lotus, now my daily since the demise of my Jazz. Can't think of a good reason to go back to two cars.

  22. Here's a few pics from that run 13/8/17. The first one is on the way at 6:35am. My 111r was AU07 HFF.

  23. Thanks for the link. Would prefer to keep the current set up if possible, so will have to take my chance. Maybe avoid Bedford for the first outing!

  25. There is a standard 220 exhaust on eBay atm at £250 (or best offer) which seems rich and it's been on a while so possibly a deal to be struck if you're after one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/lotus-220-cup-exhaust-system-/223534221698?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0

  27. Thanks for the welcome back! What a machine! Can't wait to get it on track, but slighly concerned about the noise levels! (Bedford being my local track). Would have loved to come for the MT run on the 12th, but A, I'm away and B, it's full! Hopefully I'll make a run soon. Here's a few pics. Cheers again, Mark

  28. Hi all - I'M BACK!! It's been a long wait but I recently picked up a 220 Cup. So far I have only driven it steadily home in the dark on collection and then went away on holiday, so it has been agonising waiting to give it a proper drive! However, I am planning for a spin after work tonight, and will try and remember to stop and take some pictures! Mark

  29. JCar went to have PPF fitted today. Had it collected and taken to a place near Burton on Trent. This meant I had to drive it out of the garage, down the drive and onto a trailer. It's the furthest I've ever been in it under its own steam! A full 70 odd metre drive..... Also the first time I've moved it with all the windows/glass in. Quite a distinctive sound in the cabin with the ITBs. Glad I have a double glazed rear window! The guy with the trailer just stopped and stared at it when I parked at the end of the drive. 'That is amazing' was all he could come out with Then a

  30. I've used Lindley Autocentres. Their mobile guy came out to fit 2 new rears on my Exige, took great care in everything they did, no marks on the wheels and used black wheel weights on my black wheels, which is a bit of attention to detail I appreciated. They also used a Bag jack so no risk of leaving any marks or damage under the car.

  35. Headlights - mine had no lacquer on them (removed by a previous owner) but a few scratches/swirls. I know they must be properly protected to resist yellowing etc. So I set about sanding them by hand with 3000 > 5000 > 7000 grit wet & dry then finished using my DA polisher and Meguiars 105 compound. Then I applied the Aliath PPF film. Really pleased with the results and I suspect they should be fine for years to come. LED Interior & boot lights - I replaced the standard ‘candles’ with LED bulbs. 42mm Festoon bulbs is the size. They work really well
