  1. I let my early G dry sump Turbo go as well last week. I'm a sentimetal guy as well, but sometimes, you have to decide. You (we) will always find a car that will blow our mind, and I think it's nice to test a lot of different things. It seems that I cannot keep a car more than a year, then, I feel the need of moving to something new. We will see what we can find... (ok actually I have already found).
  2. You should check out Freddy Kumschick in Sch
  3. I have many cars in my mind.... - MASERATI Mexico (I had one - and I sold it - stupid guy that I am) - MASERATI Ghibli - MASERATI 3500 GT - MASERATI Mistral - FERRARI 330 GTC that was for Italian cars.... - BMW ALPINA B7 Turbo (E12) - yes I already went mad and sold it - BMW ALPINA B6 2.8 (E21) - the original concept of "tuning" that's all for German ones - RENAULT Clio V6 (who said it's not a classic ?!!!!!) - drive one... and try not to think about it, this car is pure drug. That was the only Frenchie - ASTON MARTIN V8 series (incl. Virage) - BENTLEY Continental R/S/T coup
  4. I can't see how this green proposal can get through. Can you imagine how many people are living from "not so green" cars in this country ??? Seems absolutely crazy to me. I would say, all Esprits out there are not good, unfortuneatly. They are probably better than other places, but i've seen trash cars as well. The key is to put the money to get the best one. Go and check the cars first, the dealer etc. Buy the lowest mileage possible (unless you find a true pearl like Etienne's car), and ask for a new MOT and be sure the cam belt is done recently or will be done at the moment of the sale. Also, a nice Turbo SE makes more sense to me. The perf. is close to the V8, for half the price, and reliability and maintenance probably better and cheaper. I also think the lines of the Turbo SE are the more elegant as well. That's subjective and I'm biaised, I know ! Isn't it beautiful ???
  5. The Mexico was ours back in 2005. Stunning car. The most amazing engine sound I've EVER heard came out of that car. It had only 15'000 km from new ! To give an idea how stupid we are: we sold it !
  6. Geneva has the most severe, strict and complicated MOT of this country. I know what I'm talking about, I buy cars from everywhere in Switzerland and can see the MOT quality of every C(K)anton. Get a car with a new MOT in VD,VS,JU,FR,UR,BE,ZH and you can be sure the same car will be refused here in GE. I don't know how they achieve this, they see even things that doesn't exist or that are out of reason ! Once they made me change brake discs because they were close to accepted security margin (but on the OK side). Hell, is there a security margin to a security margin ????? If the discs are in the OK margin they are OK right ? Not in Geneva ! That was for a Mercedes CLK 55 AMG, the brake discs are out of margin after 1 mm wear on this car in this country according to their records and the car had 0.8 mm wear and they had me replace the discs. Unbeliveable !
  7. Quick hello to new Swiss members. We should meet all once somewhere in-between (bern i.e.) ! Nice picture Etienne ! I wish I had my camera at the Morges meeting !
  8. - LOTUS Esprit Turbo (early) - ASTON MARTIN V8 Vantage (classic ones) - MASERATI Mexico - TVR Griffith 500 - McLAREN MERCEDES-BENZ SLR You'd notice the Esprit is the only mid-engined one ! I like big front engined, long bonnet, rear wheel drive beasts! and many others, 5 is not enough... I'm trying to be realistic (buy-able cars), I take into acount the driving quality as well, I excluded prototype. I'm just out of an Honda NSX, what a good car it is !
  9. I've considered this Gold S2. I can only see one fault : that damn sunroof ! And one problem for me (else i would have already bought it) it's RHD. But UK guys, you should get that one, even the "reflector" paint on the wheels is stunning.
  10. I'd love a lot of cars. But my next buy will be an Aston Martin Virage (Coup
  11. Saab have quality ?!!!!!!!!!!!! Would love to see an Esprit with an AMG V8 plant. Or a Lotus with BMW-Alpina tuned engine.
  12. I have seen an Essex in Switzerland. However, if I remember correctly (that was in 2006), it was repainted Black with gold bands at the back (and we all laughed at the strange scheme that replaced the beautiful Essex ^colours. I recognized the Essex with specific interior rims etc. but I can't tell if its #013 ?
