  1. I'll add that my AC failed due to lack of use. RMS diagnosed a shot condenser (but any failure could be down to any one of a no. of things). Which I chose not to replace so they removed it, leaving the pipe ends intact if any subsequent owner wishes to re-instal the air con. I've not missed it tbh but then my Elise isn't my daily.
  2. Take it (back) to Rapid Mechanical* - at least give Andy a call and chat it through with him (* I think they fitted your 2bular)
  3. Not too late Al - it's open until tomorrow (22nd)! Over 10k have signed so far. Here's the link again, you need to give some basic info' first: https://present.brighton-hove.gov.uk/mgEPetitionLogon.aspx?Id=694&RPID=36312821 Interestingly, there's an opposing petition wanting to keep Madeira Drive closed to traffic, currently standing at a little over 3000 signatures. So a fair few have a different view. Plus there's the local political make up to take into account (plenty of green), so nothing can be taken for granted.
  4. Please take a moment to consider adding your name to this petition, which seeks the re-opening of Madeira Drive, Brighton - closed to traffic since April - where the historic Speed Trials take place (along with other car and bike events/meets as well). https://present.brighton-hove.gov.uk/mgEPetitionDisplay.aspx?id=694&fbclid=IwAR1Iw9ThqoXKf7jT6f3K2SnMdIF456NM04qH3vdWH2clkD4qrL4F_vWDBhE The Speed Trials have been held since 1905 and are believed to be the oldest running motor race. I'm sure many of you have spectated and/or competed or know of those who have. The event has been at risk before in recent years (after a fatal crash) but was saved by the City Council. Let's hope this time it doesn't fall as collateral damage to the coronavirus emergency. Naturally, feel free to spread the word! Ta
  5. Update from SC yesterday evening: https://us12.campaign-archive.com/?u=a066739e707c33b06deacd912&id=0c3fc64470 No change to the EB end date then (31 March) and no mention refunds in the event of full cancellation. As you imply, Fangio246, the organisers have or may have already paid some/all of the circuit hire cost to Silverstone....
  6. Wasn't planning on going this year (so feel free to ignore me!) but if I were I'd leave booking early bird until the last minute. Admissions tickets never run out. They've announced today Le Mans 24 moved to mid-September. And the Classic nowadays relies on the F1 circuit infrastructure being in place. So that still needs to happen as per schedule.
  7. Just spotted this & putting it out there if anyone's interested: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-peter-best-drive-it-day-2020-tickets-73952362507 Same date, similar event, FOC
  8. Without disagreeing with the above, and thanks for letting them know what we think Eddie, I think I'd also say enjoy it whilst it lasts. Discounts I mean. I see that Beaulieu charge £10.50 for advance 'participant' tickets for their various cars/coffee days. £12.50 on the day. Per person. Car clubs welcome...provided you all arrive at same time! Brooklands is similar in price for their breakfast meets - but more for other events (eg £17.95 for their Drive it Day gathering)- but I believe that also gets you entry into the museum. By complete contrast, the Goodwood Breakfast Clubs are free to attend, (you still need a ticket though). But, they're not display your own vehicle meets - not unless you meet the criteria and have been invited to show in advance. To name but a few of the other, larger venues who host this sort of thing. Regardless of the current problems, given LDC's long time support of the Scrambles I reckon give BH the rest of the year at least before coming to any view on whether to carry on going as a club.
  9. If you've played around brightness of the dash lights and still nothing, then it may be a failure of the electric current illumination which is the backlight for the HVAC switch panel. Mine failed under dealer warranty so got the whole thing replaced. If that isn't an option for you then a search on Seloc ("HVAC backlight") brings up a few threads in which there are reports of the lighting reappearing after about a week. Which can happen sometimes with (non-essential) electrical glitches.
  10. First code worked for me. Couldn't see the point of the second one, but it seems I have tickets in my inbox. As you say Eddie, not down to you and thanks for your efforts but I feel a bit miffed to have missed out on the 50% discount. 25% is still better than a poke in the eye tho... Suggest feeding back to BH on how their new 'system' works for punters (incl. clubs).
  11. I put these on my fronts last year and they seem to have improved intial 'bite' when braking in the wet : Mintex Brake Pads MDB1890 M1144 I think they replaced (standard) Pagid pads, which I'd thought for years were OEM, but now I gather they aren't (Brembo)
  12. 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/
  13. I used to use one on my 1.6 Elise (an inexpensive version bought from Maplin 'back in the day'). When it was parked outside, it extended the battery life by about a week to 3 weeks or so of inactive car use. When I found I garage to rent, with a section of clear, corrugated plastic in the roof, it obviously worked less efficiently but without the alarm/immobiliser switched on it still managed to do a job (I appreciate there might be insurance issues with that). Now, I've had a battery cut-off fitted (no electrical power to the garage) and so don't have to worry.
  14. Tickets now available - attendance & display (bound to be a few Esprit there, possibly others as well - Elite/v early M100...?) https://ticketing.goodwood.com/PagesPublic/UserControlled/UserDefined.aspx?page=Breakfast-Club&utm_source=The Goodwood Estate Company Ltd&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=10933145_BCI - TAC - 80s Sunday - GOS - Oct19&utm_content=FREE TICKET&dm_i=1QLU,6IC2H,MH3HH6,PUK6Q,1
  15. That is lush. I mean, it really is Congratulations and welcome to LDC! There are a couple of YT vids (I know of) which may assist with (literally) the ins and outs of a Lotus. There's one by a Californian dude, who's my go to when I feel the need to work on my own technique (lol). And JayEmm has done his own skit, which is jokey but possibly still of some help/interest.
