  1. Hi Lithopsian Happy New Year! Thanks for taking pity my lonely post After all that messing around getting the stack and the lights module bench tested, it turned out to the the Eliseparts LED lights. So much for plug and play. When I dug the OEM lights out and plugged in - everything worked perfectly! I suspect that the circuit needs/expects the resistance of the normal bulbs to function properly so I'm going take the LED fog unit out and insert a resistor into its wiring to try and replicate the normal bulb resistance. If that doesn't work it's back to OEM units. While messing around hard-wiring in a dash-cam I managed to break that flimsy bit of plastic which holds the interior light. It's not for being repaired so just waiting for some sheet aluminium to arrive so I can cut out a replacement. Just frustrated it's delayed me putting the dash back in by another week. Not that it should matter; We've some building work starting in a few weeks which will block the car for a further 14 weeks! Best wishes Will

    Help! I need that flimsy bracket that holds the interior light on K series S2. Anyone got one hanging around? Fingers crossed Will

  3. A warm Welcome! Car sounds great let's have some pics 😉
  4. Merry Christmas MLOC'ers one and all
  5. Still trying to sort the Fog light tell tale consrantly on. After having the lights module bench tested (all fine) I sent my stack unit away to 213 performance (ex Stack employees) for testing. Hopefully hear back soon. I did buy a fog lights relay from Elise parts advertised as fitting my car but I'm damned if I can see this in the wiring diagram for the car. Does anone know for certain if the S2 has a separate fog relay? Anyway with lights module and stack unit out, the jobs started to choose themselves: I decided I would take the dash out get it and the steering wheel boss recovered - then tidy up the wiring and clean / protect / lubricate everything else. No one will see it..but I'll know it's pristine under there. Some of the dashboard removal guides out yhere are helpful but could do with a few more details here and there, which I may record and provide in the tech section when I put it all back together.
  6. I whittled it down to two choices for the bushes; oem or superpro. I went for superpro for my suspension refresh last year. Easy to fit same nvh as oem, very happy. You won't be dissapointed with either choice. I used the POR15 three stage process to good effect for my refresh. Mostly because I was doing it myself. Not saying it's better than other approaches but does seem to be lasting well. It's also easy to touch up in the garage to prolong the protection if take your wheels off every now and then Good luck. Look forward to an update/road test when it's done. MrWill
  7. It's quite obvious that the annoying squeak you were looking was actually the old fuel tank. If you listened carefully I bet it sounded like 'change me... Change me...' 👻
  8. If you are removing your undertray and then take both seats out when replacing your cables you'd be half way to replacing your fuel tank. Much easier than trying to find a squeak! 😉
  9. The weather has been so spiteful I've decided it's time to start the other enjoyable part of Lotus ownership: Winter fettling. Before next year: I'll be sending the stack control unit off to see if it is the cause of a constant fog light tell tale, and repair as necessary. Will try some pagid rs4-2 on the front to replace the mintex 1155. Nothing wrong with the mintex just wondering what all the fuss is about re the pagids and if they are worth twice the price? Going to clean and por15 clear coat the footwells While the seats are out an alloy 48ltr fuel tank is going in. After new year there's what I hope will be a well judged mems3 compatible, reliable, tractable engine upgrade. Like the standard engine but just a little bit more. Many a good car has been ruined in the pursuit of POWER! So hopefully hit the goldilock spot. If it ruins the car/driving experience I'll just reverse some of the work. Anyone else up to any fettling over the winter; or like Ray will you still be out in all weather's maximising drive-time? MrWill

    There's been a week and 5 deleted posts before now... Sometimes words aren't enough. So was really thankful for the opportunity to donate; thank you. Your post has made my day I'm so happy for you all. She's so brave. Looking forward to the next update. In the meantime I'll keep you all in my thoughts
  11. Patent pending? It's so nice when a bit of creative DIY works as intended. We'll done Neil.
  12. Hi Mike It's was a K. I don't think vibra technics make a set for the yota which is a shame because it's what I'd recommend...but check it out in case I'm mistaken. The hardened rubber mounts seem the best compromise based on my experience Like with wishbone bushes Sometimes new oem rubber is going to be an improvement on original perished rubber, and shouldn't be ruled out. I'm a bit wary of some offerings which seemed to have just poured polyurethane into a mount without much testing. Where I have used poly bushes I've found Super Pro poducts to be really good and my go-to brand Good luck Will
