  3. On the off chance anyone know of any parking and entry tickets? would be me and the car - plain & simple - please let me know! supposed to be on a stag but id rather have a mooch at some Loti and then play catch up later - Jeez I must be getting old!
  4. My “totally original” dry sump has HC Internals. It’s all that could be found at the time of rebuilding. Meant that when my wastegate stuck it wasn’t total catastrophic meltdown. P.s don’t tell anyone!
  5. In for any additional tickets if they’re going. Ive only just emerged from under a rock and found out this is happening....
  6. Really really sorry to read this. Horrid stuff. The fear we all live with (v8 owners I’m not sure how you sleep at night) don’t sell, feel it’s the knee jerk reaction. Sod the matching numbers, no one really cares. You just need an engine. I’ve no idea on spare costs etc that have been mooted here but can vouch for Gerald at GST. Top guy and will do a proper job, although mike on here has also been partial to the odd rebuild.... best set of luck with whatever route you choose
  7. Hi Folks, I have signed up for the event and the Matlock Run but not received any email correspondence in relation to times/details etc - are you able to forward? Regards
  8. You sir are a rascal! Hi Barry, thats through specialised in Reading. Have a more local quote of £530 too but that also includes the fibreglass repair to the bonnet bracket which has decided to splinter. Will give Option 1 a go
  9. Hi Folks, I need to get some bumper damage repaired and my front GRP bumper repainted. anyone have any tips or advice as to whom to take this to? im based W London way. Ive been to see specialised paint in reading whom appear to have a good reputation but £480 to remove front bumper, repair, sand, paint reattach seems pretty strong - plus the old VAT adage. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
  10. Evora looks nice but compared to the esprit its nothing. Beautiful turbo sir
  11. 65k seems a decent mileage, more likely to have been used than hidden away. Congrats on the sale Stephen hope it all works out. Bet you’ll be sad to see suchamiconic car go
  12. Stephen! What have you done?!?!?!? im supposed to be paying for an extension! IRRC that car was for sale Castle Motors around 2 years or so ago - just over 18k - I rang to late to snag it - obviously priced low then but I still think doubling price in 2 years is pretty strong! Not sure on the naff screen or reverse sensors
  13. anyone bothering with these now the 430's are available?

    Evora GT430

    Have to say both these cars look tremendous - well done Lotus - I will take mine in original motorsport Green Please - failing that then a nice metallic grey. Some people are not going to like this but the revisions to the car shown on these 430 itinerations goes to highlight what dogs breakfast the front of the 400 is.
  15. Damn that's a fine looking duo. You've got this esprit thing licked
  16. Hi Stephen, had anymore luck with your sale?
  17. This is obviously a great car, not the ideal timing for me at the mo but money is money and well pah banks have loads of it....? If this was Norfolk mustard yellow it would be tucked up in west London as we speak but alas
  18. Hi mate, im pretty sure they are just breaking due to poor quality of the part. Not the biggest headache but a bit of a pain when you need to drive in the dark! I've got one from SJs and a spare to keep in the boot along with my reserve throttle cable! Regards
  19. Anyone know where I can source a 'decent' functioning headlamp switch that works and lasts? I've gone through around 5 SJ versions. All of which have broken. They are quite frankly shite. regards Jon
  20. Conrats bibs. I was seriously considering that car. Might not have gone down that well with the Mrs though! we need more photos too
  21. @rc_hammer I could be very interested in that car. I've been keeping my eyes peeled for the right Evora. And that's it! I was holding off looking as I only sold my Elise on Friday!
  22. Great looking car - as Jonny requested above who did the paintwork?
