My speculation is that the Lotus seats present a unique combination of light + easy to get into + narrow in width. FIA track seats might be narrow and light, but not so easy to use day-to-day. ...

Xpel vs. Suntek vs. whatever doesn't matter that much, even though there are differences between them. Quality of the installer trumps and use what they like.

In terms of whether they toe link bolts have been changed to a stronger bolt, hard to say without checking the markings on the head of the bolt on the other side.

I recently replaced the clear bra on my car and it was like sand paper, but the paint underneath was tops. Clear bra is worth the $$ on these cars.

It all depends on where you live and how smooth the roads. The 450/600# Nitrons ride surprisingly well and you can really dial down the shocks so that they are comfortable. However, my view is that...
