  2. 2020 Elise

    I am sorry but I have heard that too many times, find it annoying when they present it as something from a design studio.
  3. 2020 Elise

    Ok let me know where he works, I am a designer working in a famous English car manufacturer design studio, this is my job, so I consider I am able here to say what I think. That is not a studio level, maybe a rush volume a the best, but again, no Lotus DNA in there.

    Not sure where this is coming from, but once again, this is not great, has to be from a student again. And yes it uses more the Mclaren deisgn language than Lotus.
  5. MOT around leamington

    Worth asking definitely ! thx !
  6. MOT around leamington

    Anyone knows a good place to get the MOT done around Leamington ? If I could avoid the 37 miles to a Lotus shop for the MOT .. as they are many sports cars around leamington/warwick, I am sure there are good places .. the one I tried with the previous Lotus, reminded me that I want to avoid regular MOT places .. Ideas ?
  7. Paint Correction & Armourfend

    I had the same s2 as you before, if you want to apply a plastic protection, repaint, I have done myself a paint correction, but they never sitcks, if you use a polish machine on it, the paint won't stick. I have tried again on my current s3, but again, when I took the polish machine last time, all the correction were wasted ... so respray and then armourfend ...

  9. New Daily.....it's rapid ;)

    I had a blast again my friend in his m135i this week end, that car is ridiculously capable against my v6 Exige .. Makes you reconsider your dailuy drive but also the week end toy somehow... Those hatchback get superquick, my megane rs was not far from being as fast as my old exige s260 in straights ...
  10. v6, what can we do !?

    Hello ! I am now driving a v6 since last year, I ahve not done any track day, but the drive I have had so far on b road was enough to notice the understeer again ... specially mid corner. I was wondering, can we fit the 380 tyres on the regular v6 wheels ? I will go through a full geo also, but why not doing it with new tyres .. Also to v6 owners, is it worth to go to nitron suspension ? I know on the s2 it made a huge difference, is it still the case ? and specially on roads.
  11. Guess where I was today...

  14. Exige V6 Mileage Question

    I remember a year ago a 20k+ miles exige s3, sold for 39/40k, but privately, and if you have one year of warrantly, that's an other extra, the only other car you can compare with is a 2013 S3, 18k miles, adverted for 41k as well.
