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?

I’ve cut mine out. I have two extra radiators behind them for the charge cooler.

Looks great! Definitely something I think I'll do in the future.

You have to decide what you want them to cool, charge cooler sounds good. I’d be careful giving the brakes extra cooling. Hot brakes work better, too hot less so. There is a reason Lotus blanked them off, not really needed.
