    New car at last S190 Pics updated

    I thought it was an S1 thing too. Maybe Lotus had some rubber sheet left over 😆

    Looking great Kieran. Roll on the spring when we can all crawl all over it - and you can do the same to the bogey green S160 no doubt!

    New Elise Owner - What don't I know?

    That’s a very fair point Luke - I was comparing to a more standard K series S2 - never actually experienced the delights of a VHPD yet. The 160 is reasonably characterful in the S1 but I’m sure the VHPD turns it up a few levels...

    Another vote for top left, it’s the closest to Scandal Green 😁

    New Elise Owner - What don't I know?

    Hang on a minute matey - last time I looked your 190 was an S2 (though still very unassisted of course) !! S1's were a bit more raw - but I bet you love it, I have to say taking the S160 out now and again after the V6 Exige is pure joy, so much feel. You forget that less is more sometimes..

    New Elise Owner - What don't I know?

    Yes - I think MMC discs were dropped in late '97 or early '98. TBH unless you're doing track days galore I'd prefer cast iron discs nowadays.

    New Elise Owner - What don't I know?

    Sounds correct to me Jonathan, I too had an MMC-equipped Elise back in the day, my first, and I recall how horrified I was when approaching a roundabout for the first time in the wet and trying to brake. I got used to it soon after, basically you had to 'double dip' on the brakes, far from ideal! Would have been nice if the supplying dealer had warned me first, but no...

    Any one with a K running a silenced decat?

    Sounds like a plan matey. Looking forward to seeing (and hearing) it - it was still in pre-Kieran state when I saw it at Gav’s...

    Any one with a K running a silenced decat?

    Not sure if this helps Kieran but I was running a silenced decat on the black S160, with a Janspeed exhaust and ITG Maxogen induction. Now running a full decat on the Scandal S160 with the same exhaust as the black one, but standard induction (airbox). I much prefer this. More drama (pops/bangs) but less noise in the cabin as I think a lot of it was coming from the induction roar in the black one. Hope that makes sense - I think in terms of cabin noise, a lot depends on the induction perhaps, but happy to be corrected..

    Lotus in the Peak - kids?

    Hi Graham - to echo others comments I can absolutely confirm that my 6 year old daughter loved coming to LitP back in 2014 - her first (and mine!). 5 years later she is still begging me to let her come with me on the early morning run and loves taking part in the kids activities at the venue itself. Together with her sister they have won a couple of great prizes in the children’s competitions too. I’d recommend the slow or medium pace run unless he’s very accustomed to being a passenger on the twisty stuff. Hopefully this tells you everything you need to know. It’s a great day out for the old and young alike...

    2019 Exige Purchase

    I'll second Fish and others on here - a well looked after early V6S would be the cheapest to buy and own, taking into account depreciation. I bought my Roadster from Silverstone in October 2017, and I reckon I've probably only lost £1500 on it, and that's comparing dealer retail price to what I'd expect to get for it privately.... All depends how much you want that open gear gate, and maybe a warranty etc.
