OEM Lotus HT Leads

Post by robbo » Wed Jul 31, 2019 9:16 am

Hi Everyone,

Apologies that It has been such a long time since my last post!!... So hello everyone :)

Quick question? Does anybody know if the original HT leads are from another car or if they are actually a bespoke S1 Exige/340R Lotus part? I know the coil is a Bosch part and available elsewhere but cannot find any reference to what the leads are from and a little reluctant to pay the :crazy: £180 Lotus price if they available elsewhere?

Cheers, Paul

Hi,

I think they're bespoke to the Exige/340R due to the way they fit the Rover cam cover.

Magnecor do several sets:-
7mm Core black leads currently only £70ish at the Tweeks https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/magneco ... k-mnc47312
8mm Core blue leads £85 https://www.sparkplugs.co.uk/magnecor-h ... -set-40312 - Cant find them on DT.
8.5mm Core red leads £82 https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/magneco ... -mnc45312/

Cheers

Hi Azrael,

Yes I was guessing they might be bespoke and only from a dealer :(

Thank you for taking the time to search for the Magnecor replacements, I knew about the Blue and Red versions but not the Black ones :thumbup: I was tempted to get the KV85 Red ones but in my quest to keep the car 100% original looking I might look at the black ones as these could well do very nicely.

I'm sure anything is going to be better than the original 19 year leads that are currently on it :lol:

Cheers again, Paul
