  1. Hmmm Bull Bar, I know the one I fitted on my Discovery has stopped one non driving female already, she will think twice about turning across traffic when I have the right of way.
  2. We call it demolition derby here in the states, and trust me it is a lot of fun to run in one.... I have done it twice now, and if I lived closer to where they held them I would do it more often. Total car investment $200 on the cheap end or I know some guys that spend $thousands on a car. 10 minutes of pure road rage.... priceless.
  3. Been a long time since I posted, since my possible Esprit purchase has been put on hold, so I am just browsing daily.... Although there is a nice S2 for sale in Ebay in WV of all places, but the owner will not be home to view the car till after the sale ends, so no go there... Anyways back on topic, I own: Cellular Amps LLC A side business on my normal telecomunications job that acually pays the bills. One day maybe it will be a money maker...
  4. Tony. I had similar issues on my Buick... turned out to be the sending unit was bad. But it could also be a ground issue. I hope it was not a mechanic doing something dumb...

    First thing I noticed was the Name.... Esprit Turbo... vice Turbo Esprit Not sure yet what the other item is... but I am sure someone will tell us.... maybe the lack of Turbo listed on the car... bumper looks like an S3 but I could be wrong....
  6. I am just worried that he is spending this much time looking at a Stevens Esprit.... it is down right scary.

    They must not know know there Esprits very well... even I caught that.
  8. Speaking of waxing... Not trying to hijack the thread... Has anyone used this product or heard of it before?
  9. Hmmm I thought it was smoking:

    You have to realize that we now live in a fast food world... everyone wants everything now... they can't wait for anyone or anything. People are working longer hours so they can make more money, so they can eat out (so they don't have to cook) they have sitters for the kids, because they don't have time for them. They get angry when the fast food restaurant asks them to wait, no wonder our food is cold at time, people don't want to wait for the warm stuff, but complain when it is cold. No one seems to take the time to relax and watch what is going on around them. If someone is driving the speed limit they get upset, if someone is speeding and trying to push them they get upset. Everyone thinks life is a big race to the finish line. To me I just enjoy watching. Don't get me wrong I get upset at the people who sit in the passing lane and are not passing, but I just call them morons and wait. I will step off of the box now.
  11. Yes, the battery can get that bad. I have seen that on several cars and trucks. (my Land Rover did the same thing) Just keep in mind the more you run it with a bad battery the more your altenator has to work overtime.
  12. What you need to look at (since you asked) is a G-car.... Best looks of all the cars B)
  13. Chargecooler 89.5 model year. Very easy to tell the difference when you look at the engine. turbo... and CHARGECOOLER....
  14. Looks good.... IMHO, but (don't you love that word), I would think that having the screen angled slightly and more visible to the driver would be better. Opinions are like A******s ever one has one.
  15. Okay excuse my ignorance, but I thought the carb versions of the Turbo Esprit came equiped with a BOV.
  16. I have tried to email you 2 different times, let me know if you got my email.... Thanks. or, just give me a call.
  17. LOL Henry... No I have no intention of tell her that. But she already knows a little about issues with my Land Rover, maybe that is why she is questioning my sanity....
  18. Most of the time I would even worry about my wifes concerns Wayne, but she is just not happy with the idea of me spending money on something that may require more money than just basics, at least just to get it going so we can enjoy at least a couple of rides before the maintenance starts... She is already not happy about my other hobbies. '97 Land Rover (used for winter and off roading) Motorcycle ATV 3 R/C airplanes (all fuel models) 2 R/C helicopters (one fuel, one electric) 2 R/C 1/8 scale buggies (fuel models) 1 R/C Monster Truck (Fuel model) More Guns than I can shoot or would want to carry I will not even go into the computers that are laying around my home office. Or between me and the two boys gaming systems. She just doesn't like the idea of me spending more money on something else, unless she at least hears from someone who knows Lotus' say that it look good and will drive with basics.... tires, timing belt, fluid changes, plugs/wires if needed and such... but not engine rebuild (this year at least) or other major issues... Plus I like married life, she just treats me too good.
  19. Ok, anyone in Conneticut willing to go look at the 84 Turbo Esprit and give me a good or bad report... My wife is not happy about me spending money on an older car that I am not fimilar with unless I get someone with no interest in it to go have a look see first. She is afraid that I will look and buy even if I find something wrong. If you can help, let me know... I would like to be either looking else where, or driving the car soon... Not that I am in a hurry, but it is getting warm out. Thanks in advance, Joey
  20. Recommended Retail Price.... Maybe, but why would they offer this for less money?
  21. I have to admit, from that angle the S-cars curvy/rounded shape does look very appealing. Of course a long test drive to the car wash posted on here....
  22. The 225 and 195 in the dunlop either don't match, or they are the SP 5000's. Not the same as the SP9000. At least I can't find them here in the USA....
  23. Okay, I know this has be beat like a dead horse, but I am getting ready to plan my trip to go look/purchase an '84 Esprit.... But it needs tires. Does anyone have a link or list of tires that not only fit the Esprit, but match. I can find several tires that fit, but not match front and rear, even if I go up one size. I did find the Kumho ECSTA KH11, but not sure about Kumho's... I have never heard good things about them. But I can say that the price is cheap (not that this is a requirement). Help....
  24. Well it looks good, and I am sure that you Esprit is happy now though.
