  1. Most banks wouldn't issue a mortgage on a house constructed from wood, or single brick for that matter as there is in their opinion a high risk of a total loss. You also have trouble getting a mortgage on a freehold flat and a flat above a shop due to the fact that the freehold company is a bunch of individuals who may at some point move on and leave the company in turmoil or mixed interest, and that if a flat is above a shop the shop may become a less desirable shop and the property may lose a lot of its value.

  2. We're one away from the magic 500 members!

    Big shout out to everyone who is contributing to the forum, it's certainly on track to become the leading forum online and dynamic resource for all us Esprit owners. Please be sure to tell your fellow enthusiasts about the site and leave links on other sites to us as this all helps :(

    Happy hooning :P

  3. Err, don't know if I'm getting the wrong end of the stick here but...

    The Esprit replacement is unlikely to be a progression of the Esprit as we know it, or we'd have it now as another facelift. Lotus are happy making smaller cars with smaller engines that still go fast as the market for them is a lot more bouyant ie cars around the price/size/capacity of the Elise/Exige at present.

    Should Lotus's supercar of the future be designed and/or built in Malaysia, your S1 will still be a triumph of British engineering and Chapman's dream, and I think selling it would be ridiculous. Just don't buy a new one!
