Re: Rear brake pad recommendations

I sort of agree with this but found that the rears would lock in the wet on track if they were too good. I only ever used a Pagid Blue but had 4 pot big discs on the front (ap) and big Alcon Discs on the back. I can’t remember the sizes.

Re: S1 exige val

If you finish up with £54k it’s not your car back but you can’t complain. Time to move on I think. Maybe you can get a fraction more for the car.

Re: S1 exige value

Tricky. I suppose you need to make a guess at parts that are valuable and unique to the S1 Exige. The vhpd must be 4K with all the bits, motorsport seats are easily 1k5 and the clams and roof would be worth a fair bit when repaired. After that it’s really elise prices and your garage needs to make s...

Re: Heater Matrix Bypass

I was reading this with great interest as the aircon has never worked on my S1 Exige. I’ve just finished a study of the manual and was amazed to discover it has a cut off valve on the hot water fitted as standard!

S1 mats, brand new, red.

I have a brand new set of S1 Exige mats that have been put in the car and removed. They came from Elise Parts and are really good quality and look the same as my OEM ones except the logo is in a different position, slightly higher. The Velcro sticky is unused. Seeing someone wanted £300 for a black ...

Re: 2006 Exige S

Like you two, I had an incident in an Elise due to oil (that was a few years ago) and it still makes me cautious to this day. In my Caterham I use 4 point harness, Scroth Hans, side impact bars, fireproof suit etc. I’m not fast but it makes me feel safer. No stigma. Do what you need to do to feel sa...

Re: Air intake hose

That looks very neat but I would cut some holes in the bottom of the pipe to let water out. It’s the risk of a torrent getting sucked into the engine, you will then need a new engine. Happen to a friend’s Audi. Air intake is at the base of the grill. Saturday lad washed the car, engine and car was a...

Re: Seat moves back under hard acceleration *technical assistance required*

This happened to a friend who is not very tall when I let him drive my Caterham. He left the pit lane, the seat went backwards and he could not reach the brake for Redgate. I recommend he got taller as a fix. It must be the spring loaded position leaver is not locking into one of the adjustment hole...

Re: Rattling wing mirror

Assuming it’s not the screw that’s holds the mirror onto the mounting plinth ( which is a nightmare to tighten). It’s just a case of removing the glass with its black plastic surround, applying some silicon to the inside of the mirror to attached it to the black plastic surround and refitting. Whils...
