  1. Winter work.

    It's that long since I bought it I have no idea, will check on Monday. Same as Andy's I believe Russ. It's opened and accessed but in the box still buddy.
  2. Winter work.

    Good stuff. Russ I literally have that pump sat around doing nothing as I never fitted it nor will I if you are interested for beer tokens mate. I'm going to pop out the lenses and have painted the black surrounds body colour. Repair the stone chips and Armourfend the front clam and sills. Have Gav repair the gearbox oil leak found on shakedown, it's very minor but I think that's it. Lol oh yea and sell it .... and drive it a little bit in the meantime
  3. Exige S1 Restoration (images changed).

    I had to weigh up what I really wanted but I'm happy with my decision right now. There are plenty of spares included to either keep or sell on so hopefully it offers an extra incentive. The niggles are just that but there is also scope to go nuts and make it even better than it already is. I'm proud of what I've achieved.

  6. 340R Wheels

    Exactly as Dave says
  7. My NA with touring pack but wheels and a full exhaust changed was 889kg half full. I was pretty obsessive in getting weight down, it took a lot of effort and money getting it to 815 kgs. My clam's were standard size, the rear CF. Yours are GT3 replicas so a bigger surface area. I've sat in a mates garage and watched them being made, I've watched your car being modified twice. I know you can peddle Mark but your car is as heavey as the rest with much more aero. Nothing is significantly light about it. An Elise R or SC is lighter still than a standard S2 Exige and likely slightly modified to reduce it further but thats the nature of the beasties. Listen don't get me wrong I'm not trying to push any buttons but you said it yourself its just over 900kgs therefore similar to other S2's.
  8. At over 900kg's only half full it is actually weight as well as aero Mark. In the first respect exactly the same as a slightly modified S2 maybe with lighter wheels and exhaust.
  9. Sticking door release button 2017 Elise

    Although I have an S1, you have a reflector where this black cover is. If you unscrew it you may see the barrel or at least the mechanism and if something is loose or no quite right.

    Bonza! As they say in Italy
  11. Sticking door release button 2017 Elise

    Take the reflector off Daz, see if anything is fouling from the inside.
