  1. Hi dodge Hope you and the Midlands crew are well. Sound good. Just removed engine for detail and cambelt change. If all back together would be good to have brekky on the 2nd April. Kind regards. Simon.

  3. Just had my renewal through with AIB and the quote was cheaper this year, paid £104. Always has good customer service when I have spoken to them.
  4. Hi Bibs. Sorry I can't make this year as I am on holiday. Looks like a great event and hope everything goes well. Cheers Simon
  5. Hi Gareth Thanks for arranging. Had a great tour of the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. Look forward to next year. Cheers Simon
  6. 2. 1982S3 - coming for a blast in my brothers Triumph TR6. Look forward to seeing you there. Come on you southern softies lets have some more. Regards Simon
  7. They recon that on a base model Audi lost approx £4K per car, so I would say an over engineered car.
  8. Barry I have to agree. Only picked it up on Saturday from Dundee, averaged 60mpg on the way back over a mixed run of 350 miles. Was a dealer demo when new with top spec, including top spec stereo, panoramic room and full leather. Surprisingly roomy for a small car with some nice design bits. Although I am not sure the removal bonnet is one of them, a bit of a faff to remove and refit without chipping the front wing paint. Regards Simon
  9. Malcolm a great photo. Privileged to have a front row seat.
  10. 236. 1982SE - S3 Esprit. Hi Bibs. Short notice. Look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Kind regards. Simon.

    Hi Jay. I noticed that you live in Derby which is close to where I live. Happy to show you around my 1982 S3 if it would give you a better idea of what you might be after and what to look out for. Just send me a PM if interested. Regards Simon
  12. Hi Martin Room for another. Simon Esprit S3
  13. Big thanks to James at AIB for a friendly and helpful service in renewing my insurance (1982 S3 Esprit). Recently received my insurance renewal price with classic line of £199.27. Just renewed my insurance with AIB for £129.13.
  14. Hi Bibs. Just booked camping tickets and look forward to seeing you all. Regards Simon.
  15. I thought I dream t this part........ but it did actually happen. An amazing day. Cheers again Simon
  16. Thanks to Bibs and the team for organizing an amazing day. I really think you have the combination of an amazing event which could easily extend of the full weekend. Ready for the next one....... Cheers Simon
  17. Hi all Many thanks for the information, I will have a look. For information: I have since been supplied the paint codes from a very friendly chap who has supplied paint to the lotus factory for many years. After delving through his archive he found the following information: The paint code in the 80's was ICI NA38 (Lotus code L08). Lotus in the 90's used Dupont M1655 as an alternative. Not sure if the codes are a direct match though so I would recommend getting some samples cards sprayed before committing 100%. Many thanks Simon
  18. Hi all Does anyone know the paint code for the satin black applied to early 80's S3 Esprit on bumpers and door mirrors? I am about to get mine repainted and would like to paint them in the correct colour if possible. The paint shop will be using a high solid (HS+) paint system. Look forward to your collective knowledge. Kind regards Simon

  21. Hi all. Thanks for making myself + Rich very welcome. Great to meet an all round good bunch & some superb cars. See you at the next one? Simon.
  22. Hi Darren I'll be coming from Derby which is around 50mins away from RAF Cosford, so I am pretty flexible on a meeting point. Thanks all for the welcome + look forward to meeting you all on the 20th. Simon
