  1. I had a 'by invitation only' viewing today at the new Scottish dealer, Parks of Hamilton. What can I say other than various slightly used body parts, such as a kidney, a lung and part of my liver, will be appearing for sale on Fleabay in due course, .
  2. Will be great to see you in your 44t we will make room.

      Unfortunately in the end, drivers' hours regulations forced me to go straight to my destination in Stoke-on-Trent. 😞

  3. Unfortunately, I'm working tomorrow. Come to think of it though, I am picking up my truck from Broughton so I could always swing around that way if there's room in the corner of the parking area to stash a 44-tonner?
  4. @Miguel on here does the ones at the rear of the arch (that secure the mudflaps) in high-grade stainless steel : https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/75751-mud-flap-brackets/?tab=comments#comment-815636 . I don't think he does the bumper brackets yet (I stand to be corrected on this) but I'm sure if enough of us show an interest he might add them to his 'catalogue' if he hasn't already done so. I for one would be up for a set as I'm shortly hoping to replace my front bumper with an aftermarket 'upgrade' and I know from what I saw the last time I had the bumper removed, the OE brack
  5. @Sbfdave Yesterday afternoon, around 4-ish, northbound on the M6 just before Southwaite. Glad to see that you and/or Sharon were showing that orange upstart from Woking ( @Andrew C ) a clean pair of rear tyres, . I was headed south but didn't wave as I was in my .
  6. I blame you @mik ! Since reading your post above, I spent the rest of the weekend looking for a decent SD1 Vitesse to add to my 'collection'. Not found one yet but I'm sure there's one out there with my name on it. My only regret is that I should never have sold the cracker of an example I owned in the mid to late 80s, .
  7. Last night, around 6-ish - Vivid Green Exige S3 northbound just before J6, Hamilton.
  8. According to the V5 for mine, a standard NA as it leaves the factory puts out 87dB(A) static and 75dB(A) drive-by at 3750rpm - I think mine now with a full 2bular and a CAI might be just a tad more, . I wouldn't have thought an 'S' would be that much different so take along your registration certificate and if they question your noise output, just point to Section U and say that their noise meters must be wrong, .
  9. I thought that I'd been reasonably polite, if a little sarcastic, on the first call that I answered but they got me at a bad time with the subsequent one. Having just finished an extended nightshift with barely 9 hours to get home, have something to eat, sleep, then get back to work for the next shift, I really didn't appreciate it when the phone started ringing every few minutes shortly after my head hit the pillows. I'm normally quite a placid, laid-back sort of guy - honest!
  10. Although I'm not proud of my little telephonic outburst the other day, it does seem to have had the desired effect. Not a cheep from them since, .
  11. Anybody else been getting plagued recently by calls from Macklin Motors? It started just over a week ago when a call came through on my mobile from an Edinburgh number that I didn't recognise. I was driving at the time so just ignored it but they became quite persistent, calling a further 4 times in less than 2 hours. Eventually I was in a position to answer a call, curious to find out who needed to speak to me so desperately that they had to keep trying but not so desperately that they didn't feel the need to leave a message on my voicemail. "Good afternoon Mr Boyd," they start
  12. @phil flash Yep, can't beat a nice bit of Oyster!
  13. I know that it won't make you any less annoyed to hear that it's not any better here in the UK. Especially here in Scotland. The dealer who had the franchise for several years eventually lost it after countless complaints to AR in Italy from a huge swathe of owners, myself included. The franchise then passed to another company who were really very good, with staff who were knowledgeable and passionate about the marque's heritage. However, for a variety of reasons, they gave-up about 3 years ago and somehow the previous dealer got the franchise back, . I've had at least 1 Alfa in som
  14. I pressed the 'commit' button yesterday - least I could do after all the help I've had over the years, and not least recently, from 'The Boss'.
