This stream auto-updates     

  1. Past hour
  2. Noted Bazza and didn’t know that, so I now have 2no struts that I could send back but for the cause let’s not. So if anyone needs a new set they are sitting in my garage awaiting pick up or delivery if you want to cover the postage
  3. It's got the aerial on the drivers side suggesting that it's an early Turbo. I'd guess a 1981 or 82 car.
  4. Funnily enough the Porker had mechanical failure the day it was filmed. I said to the presenter (Alex?) that it was "typical Porsche unreliability"
  5. Congrats!....Great car, excellent color. I currently have an Evora 400 (same color but all red though, silver wheels) but I had a 2011 Evora NA in black, beautiful color too.
  6. The Exige is very different than the Elise we had from 2005-2011. They never tried to bring that model here (360, 430) I know tons of people that would have bought an Exige ....instead they got 911s, Corvettes and R8(V8)...fitting the airbags only to the Exige would've been a good move. It doesn't matter what we want in the US. Some people at the Lotus factory said..."US market? whatever"
  7. Thanks Mark. I have to say - red wasn't my first choice. I'm a starlight black man myself
  8. Today
  9. Yeah, mine sits quite far back on the cam sprockets too. No problems as of yet
  10. Both, but at the moment I'd choose the Stevens because it's the one that's running and on the road. In the future who knows but I think the TE will be top dog. Now, back on topic, who knows anything about AN12..?
  11. As per the mirror thread... A little update, been working on the design in CAD! It's not 100% final yet (although close) as it needs to go through stress tests before I'd sell to any friends. My goal with these is to make them as durable as possible, but at the same time, to reduce the thickness of the design as much as possible. It's a fine balance! The stalks will be made from Aluminium and CNC machined. I've gone for a sleek design which points up slightly which gives the ball joint a bit more movement for adjustment. The threads will be tapped into the base, meaning that the original M5 bolts (from factory mirrors) can be used making installation easier. The finish will be bare aluminium, although I will be getting mine anodised black, so if we do a batch in black we can share the cost of this. Alternatively, people could get them painted if they want them in bodycolour for example. Costs are of course very important, at the moment, it looks like it'll be around £260, per pair, if we can get 5 sets made. (this is just the stalks, Magical Racing mirrors must be bought separately) A few people have already expressed interest, please respond on here / pm me if you're provisionally interested. Payment will be required up front before the production process starts.

  19. New lights from GRP (GregRaceParts.com) fitted. I bought the previous model about a year ago and I didn't like them... too dim. So when they released the new version (GT), I placed my order. Arrived about a month ago and well, they are almost perfect. Should be a little bit brighter, but I can live with them now They are definitely an improvement over non-LED lights from 2005 Elise.
  20. Spotted yesterday afternoon
  21. Name: Lotus Elise 111R Click to view: Lotus Elise 111R
  22. Well said it’s never been down to numbers drive one back to back and that’s where the lotus wins hands down and will always demand a big premium over the coxster, sorry boxster.
  23. Excellent point about the 2.2s in 2020 Mr Greenham! We must try to get as many 2.2s together as we can; I've already done some work on identifying Elite and Eclat owners posting on forums, so I'll continue that with an additional focus. Nice picture too, and the parade laps were great fun. Peter Lucas was in my car and managed to video the session from the passenger seat; he was good enough to say my apexes were improving on the second lap. He was recounting his days of motorcycle racing at Castle Combe while we were out - an activity he shared in his youth with Richard Morley, the Lotus MD at the time of the Elite launch. They were clearly quite accomplished as the race Peter was telling me about had Mike Hailwood on the front row. There is an amusing story about how he and Richard Morley came to be working at Lotus, when Colin Chapman had explicitly banned the employment of anyone who had been involved with motorbikes! Cheers, Richard

    Hello. Greatings to England. Here some pics of my GT 430 . At last my one of one 1/60 plate original lotus who finds the error
  25. Welcome back to the fold Michael. I think you may be the guy my daughter had a chat with the other day, at work. Lovely looking car but a bit loud for my tastes. Maybe it's an age thing. Both my cars, including the Esprit, are black...
