    Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    Stunning. I drove one of my customers Vantage Nürburgring edition a few years ago and absoloutly fell in love with it . The only thing I remember was it seemed to use allot of battery if not left on battery conditioner for period's of time, oh and the Mondeo Key .

    Well it looks like after a year away from cars, DIY and building work at home, and of course a new addition to the family it looks like Friday I'll be back behind a lotus wheel. Train tickets booked, just hope it's not a return.

    Haha, its far from your standards but cleaner than most. it would be nice to get these bolts , Junks is on it for me now. Although I do appear to have lost £700 to eliseparts.

    Small progress update ... The Interior has been out, harness bar and bulkhead panel. The side carpets were coming away in places so the old tape was removed , glue cleaned an replaced with new. I also replaced the speakers with new pioneer units whilst the harness bar was out. Of course they sit 8mm taller than the old units so are no pressed tightly against the harness's and the bar. My hand this morning looks like ive had a fight with a feral cat, Harnesses have been washed and boy were they grim.... It's now almost all back in, seats are ready to go in on freshly powder coated rails once lotus send me the right toyota spec bolts and spacers, they sent K ones first even though I asked for the toyota part numbers. Here's a quick test fit of the passenger seat running the msar harness bolt on the single shear side. For some reason the seats look grey in the photo. I've put the original 190 seats and runners in the loft in case I ever want to go back and sell the probax set. All in all happy so far , the painted centre works really well and looks oem which is what I was looking for , without buying a brand new unscratched unit from lotus. The fabric probax also feel allot comfier than my old leather set in the exige, might just be me though , although having an air pump in the drivers is a huge plus point on the comfort front.

    Cheers Jonny, he didn't want to get out of it which is unusual as at the moment getting him to stop for more than 5 seconds is hard enough.

    De cat or Not

    I'm just about to throw a elise parts silenced decat on my vhpd … They will smell more for obvious reasons but a silenced version hopefully will reduce the noise impact.

    I wish... Its away
  13. Evening all, Im looking at options at the minute at trying a decat or silenced decat on the 190. I think out of the 2 from what I've read a silenced ep 4/5" is the way to go without ended up deaf? Is anyone running one that wouldn't mine me having a listen? I know allot depends on the rear box of which mines a magnex which lotus switched to after janspeed, but it will give me an idea without throwing £130 away. Kieran

    Any one with a K running a silenced decat?

    Cheers Guys, I think a 4" silenced decat is the way to go as a start point. with the cone filter and itb's like you say its allot of the noise but coming from the r500 its a country mile quieter , not having a popping exhaust 12 inches from my right ear.

    Unlucky that Martin, although he will be working like wildfire at the moment, refreshed from his Jollys.
