  2. FS: My Elise's JL Audio Subwoofer

    Parts For Sale
    SOLD This is a JL Audio Stealthbox subwoofer that is shaped to fit in the Elise/Exige's passenger footwell. I haven't used it for about a year, I should get it to someone who will use it. I did use it for about 4 years - works perfectly, never misused, never over driven. Speaker is free of...

    Yes! I cringed when she put her hand on the wrap ... but when she didn't react I actually questioned myself re if a wrapped exhaust feels hot or not. I remember thinking 'well, good thing she didn't touch the metal part'. A friend and his wife (both bike racers of an extreme sort) once...

    Hi Jon, that was me. Was on my way to a rehearsal off San Antonio - I actually had a cello stuffed in the Elise's passenger seat (have to put it in upside-down to fit). I've had my Elise for more than 10 years now - just passed 80k miles. My GGLC sticker is badly pealing and I need a new one...

  9. Lost my ABS control module

    Suspension (including wheels, tires, brakes)
    My ABS light on my federal elise started coming on a lot. Drive a few miles and it would light up. Drove like that for a few months ... then a truck pulled out in front of me and I locked up the brakes, sliding to the passenger side a bit. Accident avoided but it was time to get the ABS...
  10. Well, I ruined autoX...

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    Best AutoX I was ever at was one run by Randy Chase in San Diego. I was there all day and got 40 (forty) runs in. It was non stop (cept for lunch) and I even remember working a shift. Never had so many runs in an Auto X. That was like 5 years ago or so.
  11. Bullet holed V6 Exige in car chase in Red 2

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    Did a search, didn't get a hit on red2 so posting... Just saw the new Red 2 movie trailer. There's a car chase in it involving a blue v6 Exige. Goes under a semi. :D Something I've pondered in my Elise but don't have the guts to ever try. The RED 2 Trailer is Here! - ComingSoon.net...

    looks like passenger airbag deployment cracks the windshield. (?)
  13. Wheel failure on my Lexus this morning, Tire is unharmed

    Other Cars and Comparisons
    Yep, good advice Kiyoshi. So, yesterday on the way home the 'check engine' light comes on. I think 'hmm, maybe whatever I hit jumped up and hit the oil pan and I've got a slow oil leak or something'. So I pull over and look under the car for a drip. No drip. Instead there's a mess of...
  14. Wheel failure on my Lexus this morning, Tire is unharmed

    Other Cars and Comparisons
    I've never understood the stigma some people have against mini-vans. I wish I had one. I've gone to test drive an Odyssey and loved it. We're thinking of getting a minivan within the next few years. And when I get one, I'll be a proud owner. In this case however, you are incorrect. I'm not...
  15. Wheel failure on my Lexus this morning, Tire is unharmed

    Other Cars and Comparisons
    Here's a pic of the tire. Not a dent. In fact, I've never had a tire fully deflate and not shred. The sidewalls look great too. I'm thinking I probably shouldn't reuse the tire though. They are Falkens and I'm very happy with how well they held up. (and amazed the metal blew out before...
  16. Wheel failure on my Lexus this morning, Tire is unharmed

    Other Cars and Comparisons
    At about 70 mph this morning I see the car in front of me hop slightly. Out from under his left wheel comes a displaced piece of pavement. It's a piece of cement laying on the road about 4 inches high. Nowhere to dodge (car on my right) I just plow over it in my SUV. Should be fine...
  17. ABS light comes on while driving

    Suspension (including wheels, tires, brakes)
    The problem is back for me. I'll drop by my local dealer to get it scanned. Hopefully if it's a hub/sensor then the code will know which one. *cross fingers*
  18. Evora Airbag exemption request

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    "Lotus previously believed that Evora sales would have been augmented by a new product using substantially the same platform, upon which compliance with the higher speed 5th percentile female belted requirements would have been developed. However, Lotus states that it stopped that development...

  20. What is the funniest/most stupid comment you ever got? [Part 4]

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    Was in some boring car with some coworkers on the way to a customer site. The driver looks at the car next to us at a light and noticed something that alarmed him. Driver: "Hey, what's he got stuck in his wheel?" Coworker#1: "Hmm, I don't know. Looks wedged in there." I look over and see the...
