  1. Wow not many of us left owning Exiges. Mine's SORNed now with possible mini refurb over winter depending on funds. I should have a bit more time but much less money.
  2. DIY. It's not a difficult job.
  3. I'd flush and refill then check again Leigh. Cut the filter with snips rather than an angle grinder. Not sure what the bits will be if not metallic. Aluminium isn't magnetic so maybe residue from head work which got into the oil ways?
  4. You will not know what to do with yourself once this is finished.
  5. Never heard of them before.
  6. I can't read that emoji so I assume it's a thumbs up and not a middle finger. Lol
  7. So you're not selling it then Great news. You can now do mine if you're bored
  8. I think the Toyota is similar to the S2 K series being on at 102 degrees and off at 96 degrees.
  9. Continued best wishes mate.
  10. It was the largest number of lotus in convoy which I don't think we got because people seemed incapable of driving at a steady speed rather than accelerate than brake to a stop. There will be an old thread in the archives somewhere.
  11. Thanks. I'm going to hire a trailer locally then take the car to Gav. Just need to source the replacement boot and proper high temp grease.
  12. There's not much left. Completely blown apart. If I can hire a trailer for £40 for the day it's a no brainer. Just need to get the right parts and tripod grease.
  13. My inner tripod driveshaft boot has ripped apart. Given I can't drive it to Gavs are there any recommended trailer hire places near Newark that rent by the day? Either that or I could do with a mechanics help to fix it at home. Sleaford Trailers. Anyone used them. Thoughts?
  14. Who cares. Just have fun and drive to yours and your car's ability.
  15. Any automotive edge trim supplier should be able to provide. Edgetrims.co.uk for example.
  16. I like how the previously white walls are now some shade of reflected green 😎 Very cool car Leigh.
  17. Amazing how things work once you get rid of 20 years of rust and gunk.
  18. Easy enough job to sort once rusted bolts are removed / snapped ones drilled out. Steel in aluminium which gets wet isn't the best thing. Keep it greased and moving once done.
  19. Hi Johnny. Another welcome back and get out that lardy car into something lighter.
  20. Hmm. Looks like AD08R is 205 for the 16 inch wheel. Don't know why it came up 185 on my phone. 205 will be too wide for your 5.5 fronts I would have thought. There is stock of the AD07 still so maybe that'll be your better choice. Skinny front wheels on the early S2 were a right pain for tyre availability from my recollection.
  21. Quick check on Blackcircles and Mytyres say they have them in stock.
  22. Cheap fronts. https://classifieds.seloc.org/ads/ad07-lts-front-tyres/
  23. I've run both lotus and non-lotus versions of the various tyres over the years. Even with track use I never found a difference. 185 on the fronts of your S2 will make a nice difference to the inherent understeer especially if you've had the geo changed too.
  24. What elise do you have? Assume you have 5.5 x 16 front wheels and currently have 175 x 55 x 16 AD07 tyres. Please correct if assumed wrong. You should easily be able to fit 185 x 50 x 16
