  1. Well PJS gets a big thumbs up from me. Friendly and knowledgeable sums up everyone I dealt with. Car drives spot on. Will definitely return and would have no hesitation recommending based on my experience .
  2. Car is a 2006 111R with factory fit Cobra alarm, only had one remote so trying to code a second. Can someone just read through this please to see if I'm missing something as I can't get this to work despite following the instructions. 1. Unlock car with original remote and put key in ignition, turn ignition on so alarm stays disarmed while I press and hold both buttons on the new remote and the original until the tell tale stops flashing then goes out. 2.Turn ignition off and on three times, after the last off wait for the red light in the cluster to go solid then extinguish. 3. Turn ignition on, wait for the correct number of flashes to correspond to the first number in my pin code, when it does, ignition off and on again for the second digit. This is where I fail as I don't get any further flashes of the red light so can't complete the input of the third and fourth digit of the pin code. Anyone any ideas what I'm doing wrong please? Cheers Paul.
  3. I had a 450 Chimaera, had it for seven years, did a full body off nut and bolt job on it. Have you had one/still have one?
  4. Not at all, it was one of the things I enjoyed about TVR ownership, the people...I'm glad Lotus ownership has started out the same way for me. Cheers Paul.
  5. That was such a good shout, thanks very much for that, spoke to Simon who stopped what he was doing to listen to my sad tale of a missing carpet bobbin, didn't laugh and tell me to get a life, instead went off and found one, sent me a picture to be sure it was the correct one then wouldn't take any money for it. What a total gent.

    I'm after a stainless exhaust silencer for my 111R , ideally one with flush fit exhaust tips but anything considered. Thanks Paul.


  7. Enjoyed reading that, I have to agree with you, its the one area lacking in my 111R, the sound it makes. Its high up on my list of things to attend to. I take it because this is a bespoke exhaust you got to specify the look of it too? Would be very interested in seeing it fitted to your car if you could oblige with a photo? Cheers Paul.
  8. Nice one, I appreciate that.
  9. Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can buy one of these individually? Its the grey coloured plastic head, the male part that screws into the captive base and secures the floor mat in a S2 Elise. Cheers Paul.
  10. Your advice is exactly what Paul at PJS has just said on the phone, makes perfect sense. Thanks again for the recommendation for PJS, friendly and helpful on the phone, always a good sign. Its booked in for a check later on in the month and any adjustments needed if its out of factory spec. Cheers Paul.
  11. Thank you, ive done a very slow lap once before in a TVR that I owned, low point of that lap was getting over taken by a focus estate. Track knowledge is massively valuable there isn't it? I'll be taking it steady, just treating it like a road I don't know and driving to what I can see. Such a cool place though, can't wait to go back. Ive had a look on the PJS website, seems like its well worth a visit. Cheers Paul.
  12. Fantastic attention to detail, great read cheers.
  13. Thanks very much both of you for replying. Paul.
  14. Just bought my first Lotus, a lovely 111R, can't see any recent record of it having its alignment done. I'm taking it to the Nurburgring this summer and plan on a couple of track days in this country hopefully prior to that. Can any one recommend someone in the Midlands who they have used recently to check and adjust it for me if necessary? Ive searched and most threads are pretty old. I'm based in Belper but don't mind travelling for good service. I'm thinking 340r settings as a starting point from the research ive done but definitely open to opinion, standard Bilstein dampers fitted . Cheers Paul.
