  1. S2 Exige nose badge

    Cheers Martin. I thought that it was stuck on but it got me thinking. What's the best way to remove it without damaging the paint? A bit of cotton thread and a hairdryer? Cheers all.
  2. S2 Exige nose badge

    I'm being a bit thick here so hopefully this is a simple answer for you lot. I'm looking at replacing the faded nose badge on my Exige. I thought it was stuck on but looking at the Eliseparts badge it bolts through the clam. Surely I don't have to take the clam off to replace the badge do I? https://www.eliseparts.com/products/show/16/83/lotus-nose-badge/ Cheers all
  3. Driving experience ideas please.

    How about a Junior rally driving day? I wouldnt mind learning to drive fast on gravel myself :-)
  4. Alarm / key fob problems again

    Don' know if this helps as mine is a 2004 but the last time mine was in the garage for some work the battery failed. I had to break in using a bit of string round the lock pin on the door because neither the fob or the key would open the doors. The garage looked into this for me as I was thinking knackered lock barrel in the door but it turned out that the alarm overrides the door lock. They told me if I was putting the car away for any length of time when the battery might go flat, to lock the door with the key so that the key can be used to get back in. Strange I know but it works.

    Looking good that Simon. If I had of known she was in the showroom I would'e popped over for a nosey round her. Your Dad has the best garage around. Proper jealous. This might even rival the E-type as my favourite.
  6. Brake swap , big to small.

    I never knew this. I was thinking of saving for the bigger brake kit for mine but if the clam has to come off to fit them I don't think I'll bother now. Out of interest how come you are taking them off and going back to the smaller brakes?

    Agreed. The gents did the geo set up on my Exige with new Nitrons. I found them to be extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I would definitely use them again.
  9. Nitron suspension setup

    Well I've left it in the hands of the nice chaps down at PJS to set it all up. It's going to be standard Toe/Camber/Ride height and weighted with 150kg across the front seats (may be a touch more what with being a larger gentleman and all that). I'm also going with Martin's settings of 14 from fully hard as a starting point. Can't wait to get it back, all set up and ready for fun. Problem is we are of on holiday soon for 2 weeks in Mexico so wont get much chance to enjoy it before winter lol.
  10. Nitron suspension setup

    I can't go too low as it'll never get on and off the drive. May be 120/130 or 125/130?
  11. Nitron suspension setup

    Cheers Martin. After speaking with Chris at Hoffmanns I went with a slightly softer spring set up of 375 front and 500 rear.
  12. Nitron suspension setup

    Guys Those of you that are running the Nitrons could you give me an idea of a good base setup to set the car to please? I've fitted the Hoffmanns NTR46's and I'm going to get the alignment, ride height and corner weighting all done to factory standard settings for now so that I have a good starting point to work from. Would it be something like 8 - 10 clicks from hard all round for a good starting point (mainly road use)? TIA
  13. New Daily.....it's rapid ;)

    I'm not going to get into an argument but where do you thing all the CO2 from your large engined sport car goes?
  14. New Daily.....it's rapid ;)

    Don't believe the hype or you'll be advocating 50 mph speed limits on motorways and everyone going vegan. Until such time as electric cars can do the same mileage and power generation is 100% renewable people shouldn't be demonised and taxed for making the choices that they do.
  15. Suspension Advice

    After talking with Chris at Hofmanns he clearly knows his stuff. I'm leaning towards the non-sensible option and paying the extra. Chris told me that the 46mm piston and their custom valving and spring rates mean the still rides lovely on the road which was my biggest fear. Just got to get it passed the missus now.
