  1. Glad its sorted matey. 'Searching for a live wire' on a Lotus? Oooh that is a minefield. Good luck with that one - way out of my comfort zone! My solution for your battery problem came out of my vague recollection of Physics 'O' level and not the vagaries of Lotus electrics.

    If you didn't drive a lotus......

    Indeed sir - 4.5 litre, lifted straight out of a Range Rover.

  4. Sorry - only just seen this post. Dont whatever you do go for a genuine Ford part like my idiot garage did as they are over £30! Get a cheap 'n' cheerful non-original from Elise Parts https://www.eliseparts.com/products/show/23/10/brake-light-switch/ With regards your battery - all may not be lost! Can you get some jump leads attached to your Exige? If so, connect them up to a 'donor car' and then try and trickle charge your Exige whilst still connected to the donor car. After 3 or so hours, disconnect the donor car and see if your Exige battery has now got over 4V in it to enable full charging. Good luck
  5. Yes they could erect the statue in place of that bus shelter that a fat bloke demolished when he fell through its roof celebrating! I love this though ..........
  6. Dont worry Scatty, it didn't come close to the Blades v Ipswich game a couple of weeks ago 😉

    AD08R V’s ZZS

    I did alot of reading up on the various forums Kevin and consensus was 1.6 bar on the front and 1.8 bar on the rear which equates to 23 and 26.

    Wife runs Yokos on her S1 and I run Avons on my S2. We both do alot of 'spirited driving' in the Peak District and I cant tell any difference between them, but we never drive in the wet. As @andy states above, there is more tread on the Yokos as Avons are more of a track tyre, so would suggest Yokos are a better bet if you use your car all year round.

    Advice on Elise Sport 190 dampers

    It will be 'Kerrching' before the Summer matey - they need servicing!

    S2 Elise won’t start

    Not sure you'd get the machine gun sound with that Pete. That's the sound of the starter motor not getting enough power from the battery. Worth giving the terminals a good clean on the off chance though.

    S2 Elise won’t start

    99% certain that you've got a duff battery mate, the sound you describe is a dead give away.

    Thinking of selling my S1 111s

    or just move to West Sheffield. This chappie is 1 mile up the road from us!

    Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    Can we take a step back here and ask the fundamental question - how old are you Rich? If you are younger than me (60) I would say 'man up', get some warm up exercises done, and continue squeezing into your Exige as neither of your proposed replacements do anything for me at all. Hope this helps? Regards, Andrew
