  1. Exige S1 Restoration (images changed).

    Are you ever going to want to drive it when it’s going to be so perfect!
  2. Fixed My Fog Lights

    Great work, very satisfying when you fix a problem yourself without buying an expensive replacement part.
  3. Pallet Truck - Anyone have one i can borrow?

    I have one at my office on Pride Park in Derby you can borrow for a day if that helps.
  4. Exige S1 Restoration (images changed).

    Is comit being parted out then? Assumed it would be on the road somewhere.
  5. Accident Repair Quote - Recommendation?

    Central lotus in Nottingham have a body shop.
  6. Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Looks really smart.
  7. Elise -> Evora

    Don't discount the IPS, I really love it. Drove a manual LE evora as a loan car the other day I was very happy to be back in mine.
  8. Elise -> Evora

    Don't regret my move from exige to evora. I use it everyday and its as quick (on road and track) if not quicker than my old exige yet as comfortable and easy to drive as my old jag xf. Only point to note is you won't get an adult in the back seats. They are for kids only (perfect for my 5 & 7 year olds).
  9. Mulling over a Lotus Excel as a daily...

    My mum used to drive our one all the time. She used it as her everyday car for about a year until i got too big to go in the back.
  10. Mulling over a Lotus Excel as a daily...

    My dad ran one from new for his daily for about 5 years, then used it as a weekend car and occasional commuter for about 20 years. One of the most reliable cars he ever had.
  11. Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Option 2 is the most aesthetically pleasing.
  12. Repairs in Derby

    Chartwells on pride park are the high end place in Derby city centre. They are the ferrari and Aston approved body shop. A few of our company exec type cars have gone through there when insurance claims. Always come back as good as new.
  13. Original MLOC Banner and Flag

    Happy for you to dispose of them if no one else wants them as they are the old logo. I already have half a garage full of the current mloc stuff!
  14. Exige S1 Restoration (images changed).

    Stupid business's decision, if they had charged $20 or something I'm sure you would have done it, but with loads of free hosting places everyone will just move their stuff.
  15. Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Looks very impressive.
  16. Liquid in head almost to top but not oil!!

    Sounds like head gasket.
  17. Lotus bought by China's Geeley

    No worse that proton owning it I suppose. They've invested heavily in volvo and let them get on with their own thing. Here's hoping...
  18. To Nitron or not

    When i changed from standard s2 exige suspension to nitron one way adjustable (chris hoffman spec) with an uprated arb at the same time it took nearly 2 seconds off my laptime at curborough.
  19. New front grooved discs

    I found 308's and rs14's to be a great balance for road and track.
  20. New front grooved discs

    Yep pro's and con's with every upgrade!
  21. New front grooved discs

    This is why floating discs are only really used on race cars. They will rattle when cold etc. I think you had the 4 pots on he front don't you? The best options are the 308 grooved AP on fixed ally bells or the alcons for another £50.
  22. Your best MLOC memory so far

    Still like playing with fire lol
  23. Your best MLOC memory so far

    Driving around the alps with mates I met on here and summer evening track days at donington are probably top of my list. Seem to remember taking your for a drive round donington early in your lotus ownership Laura. My favourite was when Steve J was telling me I didn't need to upgrade the brakes on my exige. He took me for a few laps in his exige, bottom of craners into old hairpin he said "look how late I can brake", 2 seconds later we were in the gravel trap!! I did buy the 4pot upgrade after that and glad I did!
  24. Will an evora fit in my garage?

    The doors sit in a little compared to the rear wheel arch width so you can get out of a tighter space than you'd expect. Where in Nottingham are you? I could potentially meet up and try mine for you.
  25. Exige V6 Exhaust Valve Working?

    Same exhaust back box on my evora and you can't deffinetly tell the difference between the two.
