Re: Back in an Elise

Porsche was a good car, but too sensible and had no soul.
Also a lot of Porsche haters out there...

Re: S3 Elise S engine mods

I am sure I read somewhere that PB Racing do a 300bhp kit for the S3.
My S3 came with the power pack which has a TRD Airbox and a Sports Exhaust.

Re: Traction Control Light S3 Elise

Think the Traction/ABS/Cruise are all related and a warning lamp is shown on the dash.
Drove 30 miles this morning and the light didn't come on.

Re: carwow

Was going to 2 years ago when the wife bought a new Merc A Class, but I said to the salesman (Willowbrae) that we could get a 15% discount through Carwow and they knocked that off the price of the car, makes a good negotiating tool. Was back in the Merc garage looking at a C Class estate, and they k...

Re: Hardtops

I did see that Silver hardtop on PH, but by the time I add shipping, painting and the buying the bits that appear to be missing, I may as well wait for one in the correct colour. Other option is to buy the lotushardtops version and put a matt black wrap on it then matt wrap my boomerang (roll bar co...

Hardtops

Looking for a hardtop for my Elise S3, just want to confirm that its the same as an S2 (Short Tail).
Should I be looking for a genuine Lotus hardtop or are the aftermarket versions just as good e.g. LotusHardTops.
And finally does anyone have one for sale, ideally in Starlight Black?
