  2. Thx for all the advice :-) Sorry for my terminology. For "4th generation (1987-1993) and "5th generation (1993-1996)" I merely was referring to the wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lotus_Esprit and their classification. But as this is my first Lotus, want to go with something less complicated (read less things to go wrong), so a non-turbo is what I am currently looking for - and looking for Esprits made in years 1987-1996. I saw this beautiful 1990 non-turbo on eBay for £7.5k which seems very reasonable although the milage is not mentioned... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LO
  3. Looking for an Esprit :-)

  4. Thx for the advice :-) Found these two on eBay - one being sold by the South West Lotus Centre: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-Esprit-2-2-Turbo-/291196283009?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item43cca6a881 and http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1988-Lotus-Esprit-2-2-HC-/380899053525?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item58af5a4fd5 Also, seen the one on Autotrader for 5k, but that would be too much work for me... There are another couple for £8-9k that looks nice... Any thoughts?
  5. Thx. Look like a great site. Regarding reliability, I am used to a bit of English build quality with my 1995 300TDI Discovery - love the car. Also have a Merc 190 2.5D from 1990 - thought an Esprit around 1990 would fit just nicely in here :-) Just have to hide the new Audi somewhere LOL
  6. Hi everyone, I am an enthusiastic Lotus admirer, more specifically Esprit admirer (yes, ever since Roger Moore drove the Lotus Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me :-) I have often looked to buy one, but have never really been in a serious position to do something about it - but I am now :-) I am looking for a weekend driver. I can do a bit of repairs myself, but a cam belt change or anything major I would not do myself... I have been looking around and there seem to be most 4th generation Esprit for sale around the £10-15k mark. I really like the 4th generation look (and 5th generation for that
