Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

By the way I realised what a right royal pain it is to get a battery conditioner on the battery terminals!. As such, given that the 12v socket in the cabin is live, am I okay to wire up a conditioner via this socket as long as an appropriate fuse is used? Never had to do this since the batteries of...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

Great updates as usual. The car looks stunning. Shame about the Michelin PS4s, I've just had a set installed on my daily, and I rate them, didn't realise they arent available in the smaller sizes. Keep the photos coming, and enjoy every minute. Thank you. Indeed, seems like availability of the MPS ...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

I find the front A048s are a liability when cold so take it easy until they warm up (along with the rest of the car). Something to bear in mind is the Yoko Advan V105 is in the process of being replaced by the new Advan Sport V107. I don't think they are yet available in the size you need but this ...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

I have the V105 on my exige and put @lotuslee onto them. They arent a bad road tyre at all. You cant sadly get the Michelen PS4S in our sizes - I have checked as have run those with great success as well. They only come in 18inch + , the ps4 are in 16 inch availability but again , not our size. The...

Re: Lee's Exige

Seems like deja vu, after having seen photographs of #138 like that for the past 5 months. Is this the first time such a refresh has been attempted? Look forward to seeing it all finished. :thumbup: Ño i have done quite a few before both for myself and for customers, and usally do a rebuild over wi...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

I *think* it's just the cables that changed so probably an easy enough fix, but might also be a case of just doing some adjustment too. I've driven a bunch of S2 cars and all have had varying quality of shift - but the 2010 ones I've driven have been a good chunk worse. The US forums complain about...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

Awesome first impressions post! Lotus changed something in 2010 model years for the gearshift, probably due to a forced switch in suppliers through not paying bills :lol: In any case the shift in a 2010 MY car is significantly stiffer and more awkward in my experience (albeit limited). There are a ...

Re: Exige S RGB #138 - a journey towards perfection, well hopefully

Love 138 pleased your enjoying it 👍👍 zooming in on the front tires they are date coded 2010 so 10 years old 😬😬😬 Thank you, yes, very pleased with #138. Indeed, did notice that after I had posted the pictures up, so original tyres - no wonder it was an understeery hell. Receipts show that the rears ...
