  1. I have been waiting for this, as ideal for LF1. Please encourage (IE. insist) that Lotus do this. Justin
  2. DVLA think one of my Elise is an Elite. And my 340R is a MPV. Justin

    Wanted - Evora S

    I am not sure I have ever seen an 'S' for £30k or less. And prices have been on the up for the last 6 months. I own a NA, I briefly owned a 'S' and I drive a 410 from time to time. The NA is just as good as the faster Evora; the skinnier tyres are a plus in my view and for UK use, it never lacks the grunt I require. You may want to look at the TLF classifieds as there is a sweet NA for sale on there at the moment which has had a few tasteful modifications. Justin
  5. From one great to another. 964 Turbo is a brilliant machine. Exige V6 is perhaps the pinnacle of road going Lotus from the extruded chassis era. Justin
  6. It will be interesting to hear how Emira is against Audi TT. I have to admit to an almost pathological dislike of Audi vehicles, so your comparisons of the two will be intriguing. Justin
  7. They are popular so I am sure more will be coming in stock soon. Perhaps send them a message - I think the business is very small and a hobby project, so cut some slack. I have one on my LF1 (it was fitted on purchase), sounds fab if you like supercharger whine, which I do. IIRC price circa £400. Justin
  8. There is nothing quite like a V6 Exige. Welcome back. Justin
  9. That's showbiz. Imagine how all those folk at the Lotus factory have felt over the years, as their hard work and innovation has been trashed by clowns who have never even owned one. Justin
  10. I like the Lotus red and gold look...Nova not a looker but I had a 1.2 Nova Swing which was economical, comfy and reliable. SR had tartan style trim but a Fiat 128 3P, also with tartan, replaced the Nova so I never elevated to the SR. Astra GTE Mk1 was a brilliant machine. Recaro seats as standard, revvy engine. Justin
  11. Diamonds Are Forever with the Mustang.
  12. T50 will be running at Goodwood Members Meeting on 16th and 17th October. Justin
  13. I still cannot get over Exige LF1 having heated seats....part of the 'convenience pack' which includes the almost as irritating parking sensors. I appreciate LF1 is not a CUP, which suits me but I still see no place for heated seats in an Exige or Elise. Thankfully my Evora does not have them. A heated debate.........that is so off-topic. Sorry Bibs. Justin
  14. Only a goon attaches the tag to the key. I have two cars with tags and they remain separate from the key. You really do get used to it. If thieves really do disable trackers so easily and often, why do insurers insist on them on all high-end cars (McLaren, Ferrari levels)? I cannot answer that but I was comfortable doing it off my own bat for that tiny extra peace of mind. I could well be a fool. My car keys live in a safe at home, all the time, day or night. It ain't gonna stop a planned raid but it makes it that much more tricky for the opportunist. They will seek easier prey. Justin
  15. I have a Metatrak on the NA. It works well and is value compared to others I looked at in the premium tracker market (Vodafone for example). Metatrak have been around for years and are primarily for commercial operators to monitor usage of a vehicle and track employees as required. It has tags but I find that no bother at just get used to it. Hiding the tag in the vehicle is pointless, as you will not know it has been taken if you are not there to see it happen. I fitted it voluntarily, it was not an insurance requirement. I just wanted the best chance of getting the car back, though I accept an expert thief may know how to disable it. Having new brakes, clutch, gears, I don't think I would replace the car easily for the money I would likely get back from the insurer. Justin
