  3. Hi Guys, I've just joined the forum so thought I should say "Hi!". I am Joe, I have an Exige 410 Sport in Military Grey. It is my second Exige - the first being a black 350 Sport. I am 100% smitten with my 410 and hope to keep it for many years to come. I live in Northants on the Cambs/Rutland border and i am a life-long petrol head. I have a regular column in Absolute Lotus Magazine and i am a photo hawk on Instagram @jcxmig posting tons of pics of MIG 191 my beautiful 410. I also feature on the #MyLotus page richly filled with Lotus owner stories

  10. Another ex vx220 owner here. Only got rid of mine last year and now into an Evora. I have been getting out in the peaks super early on sunday mornings in the summer but its a bit boring on your own so feel free to give me a nudge if there are any sheffield/peaks runs happening? Never realised there were so many lotus owners around town!

  15. I would like to give a massive thumbs up to pjs lotus at burton on trent. My car comes come back today in 35 years of car ownership I have never known such a nice place to deal with. You can ring anytime and you never get that "its him again feeling" Prices good and work done fantastic. Workshop pristine . Paul and his team weldone mate.

  16. An older/second hand car will always hold its value better because somebody else has taken the initial hit in regards to depreciation this bit is no different from any other car. Things get a bit different when it comes to options, touring packs are popular but add little come resale time, hard tops are great if the car is going to be used all year round, having said that, a dry and bright winters day with the roof off is hard to beat. I’ve never purchased a new Elise with a hardtop and those that came with a hardtop I’ve sold the hardtop on as a separate item, some people like them for trac

  18. I’ve been spending most of my time driving around the fantastically empty roads of Wales, very few vehicles, no scameras and beautiful views, sadly it’s in a Mercedes Sprinter rather than a Lotus🙄, delivering groceries for a well known supermarket. I did the same thing for a short time when I set up my own business three and a half years ago which is now on hold, they rang me a couple of weeks back and asked if I’d be interested in doing some shifts for them as they were desperate for drivers and I’d had the training( it’s not as simple as it looks you know). With the odd exception like t

  23. There is also a 2m gap between the seats, rather that 2cm! Merry Christmas to all. I'm looking for excuses for essential car trips over the festive period. Suggests welcome. I know Ray has formed a support bubble with one of Karl's Llamas, so that one is already taken. Thanks to all who put in so much effort to the club. Calendars, runs, running the site etc. It is a really good community to be part of.

  25. Hi Dave, It’s a base 410 with additional sweetners and includes some nice touches as a nod to the original S1 Exige. https://media.lotuscars.com/en/news-articles/twenty-years-young-lotus-celebrates-the-exige-with-sensational-20th-anniversary-special-edition.html Only 150 being built in this configuration I’m told.

  30. Great drive out to Hathersage this morning for a swim in the open air pool which is fab, heated to 28deg all year. First proper drive out on quiet roads after changing squealing 2 piece disks for EBC turbos so I could properly enjoy the car. What a machine 😍💨

  31. My last Lotus went at the weekend and it feels like the end of an era. Ten years ish continuous ownership and probably 15 years since I bought my first. They have been very good to me over the years but strangely I haven’t missed one of them yet. I’m sure I’ll be back at some point down the line but I have other priorities in my life at the mo. All the best to you all and I’m sure our paths will cross sooner or later.

  32. Hi all, Recently purchased an early K-series Elise so thought I would put a post up. A few of you probably already know me from LotusOnTrack days etc, I used to tag along in my Dads Elise (@ndy) and then for the last 4 years I've tracked a red MR2 mk2. Finally took the plunge and bought an Elise of my own! The car has a few nice mods already done; GAZ Mono coilovers setup at Guglielmi Motosport, TD wheels, polybushed all round, 135 cams, Hurricane induction kit and some Corbeau LE-Driver seats which are much to small for my liking! So far I've fitted some CL RC5+ pads and a smal

  34. Great wheels Joe, looking forward to seeing it in the flesh. If the cat in the picture is anything like mine, it’ll wait for the car to be spotless before walking over every panel with dirty paws. I honestly believe she aims to get every panel with the least steps. I actually found her sleeping in the passenger seat at the weekend, post wash. By the look in her eye and the speed of her movement, she know what was coming her way. Didn’t stop her curling up there 10 minutes later.😠

  37. New acquisition agreed with collection next Saturday. As it’s covered c300miles and described as new/mint my expectations are rather clearer than the last purchase attempt. For those like me who enjoy the geeky lotus build specs, for some reason this car has the door cards (arm rest/pocket) belonging to the Phil popham gt410 (or 400), yet it was built after the 400 ceased production and prior to the launch of the gt410🤔.

  42. The pitting, and the casting lines, could well be the cause of the leaks. From what you've said previously it's not something mechanical (clips, etc.) that is at fault. Silicone hose is very smooth, so may not be conforming into the pitted surface. I would avoid using any type of filler in case it flakes away into the system. As I posted earlier, run a bead of sealant around the fitting, just behind the flare. Then fit the hose and clamp up, but not fully. Leave the sealant to cure, then clamp up a final 1/2 turn. How was the housing cleaned (I'm assuming it's not new by the loo

  43. Like most folks who own these little cars, it sometimes ends up sitting in the garage for weeks on end, especially during the winter months. Traditionally, what I tended to do is lift up the front bonnet and connect a trickle charger every time I suspect that I am not going to be driving it for a while. This method works well, however it is a right pain in the back side as you would then have to pop the bonnet again, remove the terminal before driving the car out. Over the years I have toyed with various options, bought various connectors etc, considered an external port mounted on various
