I meant to hunt you down actually and ask about the height of your +2.. I'm trying to sort new suspension for mine (the silver/blue one you took a picture of with the dodgey vacuume tank!) as I think it's a little too high (and the rear suspension's knackered anyway...)

What do you have on yours - is it new, or just low because of very tired springs?!

Ha, my rear end seems to have found a few admirers :lol:

To be honest I have not taken the wheels off since I bought it last year, I have been to busy on the wiring.

I know it is a Spyder chassis as the PO had to buy a new rear Spyder wishbone as it broke on my test drive :D

I will remove a rear wheel and take a pic ASAP for you guys.

Hi Jason,

Mine was the Pistachio Plus 2 next to yours. Had a parade lap label thrust into my paws and went home after that.

Anybody get any Parade Lap pics?

I was looking for you but we seemed to have missed each other.

Did you have to pay for the lap? Nobody offered me a lap :(

I have two pics of you car, if you want them let me know and I will email them. I have about 20 pics of the cars I have already posted if anyone wants full size copies ( I reduced the quality for this posting).

My fav of the day was the blue/silver one, I think that was yours Rob??
The seats look great :)

Hi Jason,

I opened my passenger door and some lady ran towards me saying "I've glad you've turned up, we'd like to have your car on the parade lap. It's the only one in that colour here".

Would be good if you could e-mail me the pics. Vid welcome too, let me know if you want an ftp address to upload too.

Ta,

Niall

I have been informed by Club Lotus that there was an official photographer who will be contacting all those who were on track with proofs.
