Just buy the Stage 2 from the USA and put it on your car, you will be happy:D

BTW I was just thinking that I know they sell the Stage 2 in the UK also. I have also seen it called the "level 2".

Good Luck

I was told from someone at Lotus USA that the exhaust give no performance gain BUT is lighter and louder. I think the weight savings and maybe sound is what some are looking for, dunno. It also has bigger tips.

The last one is the Stage 2. It's nearly flush with the diffuser.
It really doesn't seem all that loud.
Lol. Can't help thinking that it is lighter because the tips were cut off, and it is louder because it now opens closer to the underside of the car..... Excuse my dry SOH.;)

Stage 1 and 2

I have seen both systems on the Brooke Kensington website.

The stage 1 is around 12kg and the stage 2 around 8kg. I did call

them and they said the stage 1 system is around 105db but did

not have any figures for the stage 2. They ship directly to the US.

Hope it helps.

You can buy them from your local Lotus dealer and save on the overseas transport...
