S1 fake front clam intakes....has anyone cut them out?

So the S1 comes with black stickers that go in the “intakes” on either side of the radiator input. Has anyone cut these out and run brake vents or extra radiator venting?

It’s a copy of the one done 16 years ago in Sydney (which was audi converted).

Totally wasted in Singapore :(

Good food in the restaurant behind the car though :D
Haha! Yes, probably not a lot of good places to really drive an Exige in Singapore

Re: S1 Exige Conversion

Great progress! Yes is hard to see your car completely covered in filler dust.....it just gets everywhere!
Looking forward to seeing what the colour is you are going for.

Who penned the S1? (Elise Motorsport)Was it Julian Thompson or Russell Carr?

....Or someone else?
There seems to be plenty of design history on the S1 Elise, but nothing seems to be mentioned on how the Elise Motorsport (Exige) came about or was developed?

Any facts floating about?

Re: From S1 to S3

I imagine it would still be worth sacrificing a scruffy S1 Elise to bring it back given what they are worth.

Anyway, enjoy you new S3. :thumbup:

Wanted - VHPD Throttle Trumpets

Hi all!
I have a set of new Late (Titan) VHPD Quad Throttles, but I need a set of the trumpets for it.
The factory ones are fine, or if you have some aftermarket ones I could be keen on those.
I’m in New Zealand, but can have them sent to a UK address if you would prefer.

Cheers,
Chris.

Cool, Thanks James. Can't say I'm a massive fan of the "BBS Style" bonus wheels :crazy:

Re: From S1 to S3

That looks fantastic, I would love to go to an S3 one day.....the sound of the engine is intoxicating!

Sorry to hear about your S1. Without sounding morbid, what happened to it after it was written off? do you know who might have parted it out?
