    S1 Elise, can I use 205/45 R16 87W on the rear?

    Ok, great, so I'll decline and look for a better option.
  2. I've been offered some wheels and tyres from a friend, used but with good tread on them. Toyo Proxes T1-R 185/55 R15 82V 205/45 R16 87W I don't really understand tyre sizes and what's OK/not to play with. I know the rears _should_ be 205/50 R16 not 205/45. What are the issues with using these sizes? Thanks

    Elise S1 Wipers... again

    OK, so I've read through threads on here and on seloc, and the wiki articles and more. I know the original wipers on the S1 suck, and the answer is to upgrade to the S2 wiper arm. But... my S1 is totally original, everything is as it left the factory and it seems a shame to change it. So, I spent time looking around on parts sites and they all seem to think they have wiper blades that fit. Here's just one example: https://www.wiperblades.co.uk/elise-years-1996-to-2001-wiper-blades I'm guessing none of the listed blades do actually fit and it's just their compatibility data is wrong? Can anyone advise? Thanks

    @AlanS1 do they mark the dash at all? I'd be worried about it leaving an imprint.

    Need Inspiration... Phone Mounts

    I've always thought the brodit stuff looks really clunky. My ideal would be something that goes unnoticed when not in use. Haven't found anything I really like yet though...

    New Elise Owner - What don't I know?

    OK, done some reading around those. This is a 1999 Elise, so I think that's after they stopped fitting the MMCs and the discs hold a magnet, which suggests they're not the aluminium-ceramic of MMCs? I think they're the cast iron OEM discs.
  8. I have a completely unspoilt dash, as it came from Hethel, not even a stereo. I need some inspiration for securing a phone (for satnav etc) Please post shots of your best solutions for inspiration.

    Any S1 owners got advice on improving the headlights? I read some stuff about HIDs but apparently that's a no-go since MOT rules changed.

    Yes, absolutely. I've driven quick cars, but they've all been front-wheel drive. Though I have driven Elises, Caterham 7s, and similar on corporate track days. I plan to get some car control training and have had a couple of recommendations. I'd welcome more if anyone knows of car control training (South Birmingham)?

    Great todo list @John FISH Curtis thanks I didn't know about the fuel gauge, so thanks for the warning @kayj_prod!
