  5. An executive, out of control, as it is trying to implement the democratic will of the people whilst being undermined by those who want to stop the democratic will of the people and you think we should be proud? I'm ashamed by the whole thing and of all the politicians from all sides

  6. As some of you know, I'm pretty new to the Esprit thing...... so I was unprepared for the reaction its gets. Two weeks ago I was at my local micro brewery members night with a mate. I was driving, so we took the Esprit and parked up. We only had the one pint and we went to leave around 8.30, just as it was getting dark. We turned the corner to walk towards the car only to find about 15 half cut men standing around and near it with pints in their hands. As it became clear that we were the ones getting into the car, there was general hubub and light hearted cheer of ooohhs and weyhays

  8. Well, following soldave's post about this, we took the plunge and completed the rally yesterday. For those who dont know about this, the Fireball Rally is an organisation that arrange various types of motoring holidays in Europe https://www.fireballrally.co.uk We signed up to James Bond's Switzerland one that is an endurance event planning to visit 8 countries in 4 days, totalling 1800 miles!! Many people buy cars specifically for the event, usually under £900 but we chose to take the Esprit. Now, my Esprit has never let me down ever, but the closer the rally got, the more nervous I

  10. Although an older thread, I was looking for a correct windscreen wiper and came across this topic. It seems the right part (nowadays) is the Bosch AR60N. Might help someone.. Fyi.

  15. Sure! These are the type of roads encountered!! The first time we met these was as we dealt with a pass late in the day (dark) and it came as quite a shock! Goldfinger Hotel (Grimsel & Furka)

  16. Thats exactly the problem. They should have been paying CT in the UK at the UK rate but end up paying 1% in Luxembourg thanks to the EU.

  17. I shouldn't worry about 'copying' anyone. l'd developed and fitted a tube and cone with new maf mount long before BOE got around to it. Born tinkerers like to tinker despite commercial kit being available.

  18. I think so. There's also a percentage of tariffs (80%?) that we collect on the EUs behalf that is sent to the EU, which would go 100% to the treasury if we weren't in the EU.

  20. Well, its slightly tenuous - Neuschwanstein castle was where Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was filmed. There the links begin....... Written By Ian Fleming for his son Caspar (affectionately known as 003 and1/2) [Tragically, Fleming never got to see the printed versions of his Magic car books as he died in 1964 on Caspar's 12th birthday. Caspar was deeply affected and troubled, eventually killing himself, aged just 23.] Roald Dahl was involved in the screenplay for CCBB and the adaptation of You Only Live Twice. Produced by Albert Broccoli (Barbara Broccoli was an extra in the fa

  21. Someone should calculate the figure of the entire amount of corporation tax on UK profits from the 300 multinationals which was lost to other EU countries such as Luxembourg, Jersey etc, including Apple, Ebay, Paypal which the UK has lost over the years as a result of EU membership. The figure would be huge.

  22. I agree with Andy above. On my brothers one they actually came loose whilst running (you can feel it start to move back and forwards under braking). On my S3 with trunions I use purple poly with nyloc nut just nipped up against the bust and thread lock and they have been good for 1500 miles.

  24. Looks are always subjective @Five50 and one persons beauty is anothers pig and both are right. The good thing with Exiges, and Evoras, is it's a relatively painless, but not too cheap, process to put the latest front body work on and indeed several owners on here have created their own, hybrid and stunning Exige that takes the best bits of design from all the past and current models. They're like Kinder bars, they can be whatever you want them to be...

  25. You can also order the parts from @TLF I believe at a discount too. IIRC and my fading grey cells are not failing me B&C took over the DeRoure operation which was obviously a very positive step forwards for parts supply. Though I guess it still needs Lotus to hold the parts for them to get them. Pleased you're getting good service. Your cars a knockout. Looks superb.

  32. I think it is important you take your car to someone who you trust and has a good reputation. I have had so many bad experiances with main dealers. After much reading on the net the one place I had read very little negative feedback on and lots of positive stuff was Hanger 111 - so I too make the 2 hour trip, confident I will have the job done properly by people who know the car.

  33. Hello Having finally sorted out my brakes in my S4S I just wanted to note a few things that might help others. This is not to discuss how terrible the brakes are ( they might be, but they work!) I also want to keep the car as stock as possible and where I live it is very difficult to change brake systems legally - possible but difficult. I also want to thank Ian Lord et al. for the fine ABS delete servo brake system - I bought the kit as a back up for the future if and when I can no longer keep the original system. It is a very complete and well fabricated unit and part of me i
