VIPER, oh great messiah of A/C mods and electrical bits...

I am a bit confused good sir (easy to do).

I thought you had a used 2005 Elise for a while now? What would a report of this nature tell you about your vehicle that you don't already know? Would it tell you that your engine is falling apart or that it is wearing out too quickly?

Did you acquire a second Lotus? I saw that you posted about rusted rotors as well... which is why I am so confused.

That's funny :bow:
Well here is the kicker, my mileage was 5723 miles between changes, less than the 7500 miles limit, but the time was 1 year 11 months, not the 6 months stated. I did this test to prove to myself this theory. I might add that in certain parts of the country, condensation may be a bigger problem and extended time would not work.

It may be funny, but it is true good sir! :bow:

I understand now. Thank you!

May I then ask this question: since the oil does not degrade as claimed, is it best to change it more often if one drives their vehicle more often? What would have been the difference of a daily driven car? Say @3500 Miles as opposed to @7500 Miles
