  1. I don’t know which car they’re off or if they’re Lotus specific but I’d try Phil Peek(Junks) on seloc, he’s running his operation down but he’s probably your best chance, failing that try a wanted ad on seloc, the units are notoriously dodgy so somebody might have just a bulb holder kicking about. I’ve just had a look through my old stuff and came a across these two. I suspect they are rears though? Your welcome to one if you think it’s any use, I’m sure one could be doctored to fit if you get really stuck.
  2. I’ve seen one of these fitted https://www.pioneer.com.au/shop/car/sph-c10bt/ it looked pretty good.
  3. Haven’t fitted one myself but other have by using din spacers to bring the unit forward https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/350447890178 hth
  4. They’ll be probax. Probax is a material(foam) that Lotus use as the cushion in the seats, it’s actually a sort of memory foam. The seats you have there are from the more luxurious end of the Elise spectrum take a look at a S1 original seat for a comparison but I found those to be pretty comfortable too, I can’t offer a way to make them more comfortable, I’d have thought adding more padding would be detrimental to the driving physics of the car? I’d give them a bit of time, perhaps you’ll get used to them?

    I’m currently looking for an S1 or early S2 Elise, private buyer, happy to pay realistic/current market value for a suitable car. I am not a dealer! Anything considered except insurance cat cars. Thanks


  6. I bought mine from these guys: https://www.classicadditions.com/en-GB/indoor-car-covers/super-soft-stretch-indoor-car-cover/prod_10072 hadn’t heard of them before but they are local to me(South Shropshire) so thought I’d give them a go. Had the cover for just over 6 months now and very impressed with it. Great customer service too.
  7. Reason I asked about the colour was that I had the same issue with a Gunmetal S2 some years ago, it was brand new fresh from the factory and after a few weeks of ownership it started to blister just like in your pics. It’s a long story and I’ve probably documented it on here before, ultimately Lotus ended up replacing everything with the exception of the roll bar cover and the lower sill panels, the car was returned to me and the rear clam suffered the same again. The final conclusion from an independent paint specialist was that a combination of poor preparation and poor paint adhesion were
  8. As long as he doesn’t agree to your request and then renege on the deal, which would be very easy to do. What did he charge you for doing the doors?....It’s not Gunmetal Grey is it?
  9. IMHO he’s talking bollocks. The problem with blisters is that they need someone who really knows their onions when it comes to putting things right, I suspect this bloke doesn’t because looking at your pic. On the down side your waist seals are not good and therefore give him an excuse. If you want him to put things right I suspect your going to have bite the bullet and get them replaced which then gives him no excuse for a perfect job. If it was my car, I’d get the waist seals done, then take it to a paint shop who know what they’re doing, but appreciate this will be the most costly opti
  10. 1) Are you sure you’ve mounted the camera in the correct way? AiM is all plug and play, you shouldn’t have to be cutting wires. 2) Airbag light shouldn’t be on, again this is automatically taken care of as long as you disconnected the battery before installing. I’m unsure from your post if you have an airbag car or not? Once the airbag light has been tripped it’s a dealer/someone with the correct diagnostic kit to reset it. 3) You have to be stationary for the AiM unit buttons to be operative, it’s a safety feature. All menus should be operative with the ignition turned on, in fact t
  11. If none of the above help then check out George’s AiM video. If you scroll to the end it shows how to get your original unit out and how it plugs in(could be a loose connection). Pretty simple to get to the back of the unit. Another one here that shows more detail Coxy I watched the guys at B&C fit my AiM dash, really simple process and very plug and play, a short drive after installation in learn mode so it gets the gear changes and all’s good. Great bit of kit. Apologies to Graham for the thread drift.
  12. Yeah, right, of course you were🤔😆😆
  13. I might be wrong, but the threads I've read over the years in regards to getting them refurbished it seemed the majority have said it was more economical to buy new. I enquired with Bilstein about 9 years back, they needed the units first to inspect them which was fair enough, but iirc they then went on to say it was around £75 per unit before any spares were fitted, the set I had were pretty crappy to be honest and I decided it was a better bet to fit some quantums. Millage of the car and when they were last replaced would be my rule of thumb. Hth
  14. Is it red? looks orange in the pics, if it’s orange, I’d say Exige Orange, tricky colour to photograph, can look really red in pics. Drop an email to Lotus they’ll tell you👍
  15. 1) No, but the clams probably were. 2) Probably not as they rarely take on owners ideas. 3) Most likely. Knowing Lotus they've probably got a big box of nose badges at the end of the line and its just a lucky dip. As its a heritage model I'd keep it original, prefer the badge its got. I'm told my car was the first car to leave the factory post lockdown 🤫😉 🤐 🤔
