  1. Just been relisted on eBay under another seller.
  2. Did you replace your S4s with a Spitfire?!!?!?!

    Engine Stalling At Closed Loop

    @Ginger pigI had the same issue with my car when buying the aftermarket alternative from a well known supplier...mail the supplier and tell them about your experience with the part. The more of us that let them know the part isn't fit for purpose, the better.
  4. + 1 for "don't do it". Having taken apart the entire chain from the master unit to the translator there's just so much adjustment and risk it'll shift over time...

    Esprit fuel economy

    Esprits are extremely economical. I've gotten quite good miles from mine when driving on the highway. Best I've done with my current daily (on highway) is 14's baffling how thirsty it is.

    Evora -> Vantage

    I've heard the boot in the Vantage is mind bogglingly big. I've recently fallen in love with NA engines after enjoying the 400 hp V8 in my Maserati and could easily see myself switching to a Vantage next year (feels wrong to be driving something not British) - but there's something about the Evora that is so alluring, even more so when it seems to come up top trumps above. Does the NA Evora feel like a slouch compared to the 4.7 V8? Do you have to rev it out to have fun or is it just fun at any speed? I think the Vantage is a good 400 kg heavier at least so a lot of that power is "lost" on simply getting it to move...

    Clutch bearing

    I have the same on my Stevens. I was thinking of pulling the box just to change the bearing. Pain in the ass to listen to...

    What made you happy today?

    Cheers man. Code turned out to be a intermittent "suboptimal catalytic converter efficiency, left bank" story that's been following the car around for years. I've shut it off hasn't come back since.

    What made you happy today?

    What made me happy today? Picking this up and driving it in to work at a steady clip of 160 km/h.... (lI was ess happy about the CEL it threw at me when I was half way there, but then again, I'd expect nothing less of this marque...)
  10. Yeah seriously. If Murphy's law dictates that SOMETHING on the Esprit is always gonna need doing, better it's the driveshaft seals than something else. Better the devil you know....
  11. Naaaah , they're around. Not as cheap as they used to be though.
  12. Cheers for the advice lads. Really looking forward to getting this done. Sorry to hijack a g car thread

    Esprit Turbo SE 1991MY RHD

    Bump! I still haven't found a home for my SE, and would like to do so before I pull the trigger on a Maserati 3200! I'm willing to negotiate on price if need be. The SE has just had its AC regassed so whoever buys it will be able to stay cool on the way home.
  14. What's the easiest way of getting the hub carrier off the car without removing the drive shaft - I currently have driveshafts that aren't leaking oil and would like to leave them undisturbed at the gearbox end... Really looking forward to this job tbh. But mine too are seized so I believe some quality time with the drill is in order.
