    • Thanks for the info Kevin, especially the tip about the handbrake. Went to get it out of the garage yesterday after washing it two days earlier and it wouldn't move, then eventually realised the handbrake was seized on. As for the brake pedal pressure issue, Bibs on The Lotus Forum said I would notice a lot of difference from the TT as the Sport 220 doesn't have anything like the servo assistance that the TT has, which in turn allows for a lot more braking feedback.
    • Difficult to say as it depends on how assisted the brakes on a TT are. You would certainly notice the difference from an older S2 to your S3. It should still stop like buggery though! Re the washing thing. If could be suds getting on the discs. Also, If you are letting it stand after washing it, leave the handbrake off. The brakes will stick. In fact if you leave it for any length of time, leave the handbrake off! Kevin
    • I’ve noticed that during heavy braking on my recently acquired Elise 220 Sport, I seem to have to use a lot of pedal pressure in comparison to an Audi TT for example. Just wondered if this was a characteristic of the Elise? I also notice that after washing it, the brakes appear not to work for a few yards before eventually biting. Just wondered if anyone had any thoughts
    • Many thanks for this, and no I didn't know about the local area page, so many thanks for this.
    • Welcome 👋  Lovely car! You've probably already seen your local area page on the (main) website but if not it's here http://www.lotusdriversclub.org.uk/?page_id=7719/
