Thats what i did. I called them and that's why i am so restricted.

I spoke to a lot lot of guys around and many said its luck if it goes through.

So, i don't want to take the risk to have a car without licence plates.
Very wise.

Re: Private buyer is looking for an Exige S1

Klaus, I have been in contact with Lars as I think all S1 Exiges will have a model year on the vin of 2000 or earlier. My car is on a 51 (late 2001) plate but the model year on the vin is Y which is 2000. Lars and I have also discussed that not all Exiges have CoC and I believe non CoC modifications...

Re: Inlet pulley for 190 ECU

I put mine in the recycling bin or you could have had them. Rumour always was they are not great and verniers are worth fitting. I think it’s hit and miss and depends on the car. I have verniers set on the dyno.

Exige indoor covers

I have two Exige indoor covers, both excellent. They are the Lotus supplied ones which are black with white piping on the joins and Lotus embroidered on the front. I don’t have any pictures as I’m travelling. If you are interested I can send some on my return. I’m trying mloc and here before seloc. ...

Re: sorting VHPD drivability issues

Yes indeed, idle is about 1250, mine settles a smidge lower than that. However, if you have things like the fan (interior) or cooling (engine) or lights on the idle goes up, not to 2400. That was the issue I had with an Emerald, it did not adjust well for accessories being switched on and changes in...

Goodwood

Just completed a day at Goodwood. What a fantastic and lightning fast track. Playtime in the morning and dream rides in the afternoon. Took the s2 as I did not fancy 180 drive there in the heat and no air con. Constant queue for rides in the Exige, had to hide when I needed a rest. Noise is a major ...

I think mine runs as good as you can get, at the moment. If you want to compare it some time you are welcome.

Re: RS4 Avant

Can you switch the popping and banging off from the exhaust? I went for the BMW 340 estate as it does not pop and bang and I have early starts and neighbours. Mind you, over the road has just got a AM DB9 and that’s very antisocial at 5am.

Re: New Owner N4EXG

Yes for Track use i'd advise getting the revised ecu with lower cam point. Just makes the power more usable, you'll fi nd yourself half way though corners waiting for the change and the power to come in else. Do you know it's original reg number?? Laugh if it were my old car... Agree with this, my ...

Re: New owner with v6 cup

Always liked that car. As Gav was the first owner, did it have any tasty extras? Must have done.

Welcome.
