I'm interested in a slightly longer diffuser with additional fins like the Motorsport Elise Parts version or similar, if anybody happens to have one... ?!

Cheers!

I have the Hanger 111 version, which isn't that expensive. https://www.hangar111.com/shop/lotus-el ... black.html

It's a while since I bought mine, but as I recall it came from defuseco.com, although I think they had a different name back then.

Thanks, I see their diffusers online and they look good. No pictures fitted to the Exige though. Do you have a photo of how it looks? And are you happy with it?

Thanks for the info folks on diffusers, all sorted now, ordered from Lotus Fred (appreciate that tip Dris) and should be with me next week. Obligatory photos to follow :D

If I recall, it is the one they list as "+50mm" (might have been more, but I've slept since...) as I wanted one that was slightly longer than the stock Exige diffuser but not something so big that it looked like I was towing a bookshelf!

Very pleased with it...slightly belated reply :oops:

I treated the Lotus to new diffuser in anodised black from Beckwith Engineering. I was a little hesitant thinking it could be 'a bit much' as I just wanted it to be bit more purposeful looking than the standard two fin yet not OTT full on Motorsport. Pleased? Absolutely. I will have to 'test' the aero effects next year when weather and circumstances allow but for now I can just look at it :D

That looks better than the standard item.
Very much doubt you will notice any aero difference.
