Re: How to get through the winter with no Lotus action...

Agreed. Used to SORN mine, but haven't bothered in recent years. Admittedly the car was off the road for a while for other reasons, but I love having th chance to get out on a crisp and clear morning and give it a blast.

Re: I am back

Very nice. I thought the new ones all had the mixed size rear lights, or is that only on the 410/430?
