  1. I ended up buying that yellow GT410 Sport. On way to collect now. Had it confirmed was management car not a press car and just used for that Norwich City video (was only yellow one they had available at time). Also confirmed those tyres were original so to get 15.5k miles out of rear cup2s is good going! A few bits to tidy up to make it perfect but at the price (negotiated quite a few £k discount as well as new tyres) its a decent buy I think.

  2. No I don’t think they need go through a blitz to toughen them up but I do think they need to get a sense of perspective about some of their perceived problems. It is quite possible to bring children up to appreciate the opportunities they have today whilst, importantly, respecting the previous generations who made their freedom of choice possible. As C8RKH says, too many of them have a sense of self entitlement. I used to see it all the time as an employer and the genuine belief some had that the world owes them a living really wound me up. I used to try telling them nobody owes them

  4. These cars are super rare, even when new. I don't think sales will go down or up. They will remain static as there will always by a dozen or so potential buyers with around 20 cars to choose from. The issue is some people will still think prices will fall, so will look and not buy (and forever miss the experience) and others will just come straight in, find what they want (a compromise on spec/colour will be made) and buy. That's it. I don't think there is any more logic to it than that for such a niche motor car.

  6. Yes. Is the short answer. The longer one? UK kids (like most of the West) have it flookin' EASY by and large (there are of course those who don't) and as a result they are becoming softer. Meanwhile, other parts of the world the kids are growing up tougher, in harsher experiences. They are more resilient. More resourceful. More hungry. As the market for jobs and resources is increasingly global, who do you think is going to win the war? Not necessarily a traditional bullets and bayonets war. But the war for jobs. For resources. Etc? A lot of the kids in the UK today, the toug

  8. When I came to do this job on mine, the foam had rotted so much there was hardly any left and I was able to use a vacuum cleaner and tweezers to suck/pull out out the remaining bits. I didn't remove the B pillar, I purchased a piece of the black foam that pet shops supply for fish tank filters, cut it into sections and carefully pushed the blocks of foam through the gaps in the B pillar using a spatula.

  18. Haven't yet attempted it on the lotus but I fitted HIDs on my other car. How i attacked it was to buy a set or rubber dust caps like these bad boys so as to leave the oem intact, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2pcs-80mm-HID-LED-Headlight-Car-Dust-Cover-Waterproof-Dustproof-Sealing-Cap-/183687671300?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 Various sizes available so I'm guessing it'll be something out there for our cars as well. I cut a round hole and used a rubber wire grommet (not blank) to pass the cables through. When all was in place I sealed it with silicon. It's been like that for years now
