  1. Like this one? It is a 1999 Lotus Esprit V8 SE in immaculate condition but a left hand drive! It was owned, driven and maintained by Lotus for most of its life. It got a new engine around 40.000 Km. The new engine has been revised. Car is running perfectly. I am considering selling but I think you want a right hand drive. BTW, I lived in Chiswick last year on Bath Road. Good luck finding the right car!
  2. I recently bought an AutoXRay EZ-Scan 4000 to get OBD II info on my 1999 Lotus Esprit V8. Connection works well and I can see the info on my screen, however some questions Is it correct to configure the unit under OBDII Generic? Is there any way to configure this unit for a Lotus V8 engine? When I try the O2 sensor the unit does not support this test. Same experience? Is there any point in upgrading the unit to enhanced OBD II features? Thanks Christiaan
  3. Vetronix cartridge for Lotus Esprit LOTUS 1989 ECM 'ESPRIT' Part number TK02370 Serial number 11050195 Never used because I never found a Tech 1 scanner
  4. Lotus Esprit Toolkit for sale on eBay http://cgi.ebay.nl/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIt...em=160273080172
  5. I would seriously sell my esprit V8 SE and buy one!!
  6. I have one available for you if you can not find one. Let me know if you want it. I will sell it for GBP 50. It is the one with the AC.
  7. Jane Seymour Jane Seymour! Most beautifull woman ever! Has style and class! Is classic! Is a Bond girl! Is english (and little bit dutch)! Still looks great when older! No doubt about it!
  8. Instead of investing a lot of time in another Esprit information source, I say LEW is that source and it would be better to help Kato expand his site. Or else all the information is scattered around numerous sites.
  9. I did some investigating a while ago and found this website. http://www.ssdieselsupply.com Do a product search on the keyword 'Vacuum pump'. What shows up looks a lot like the pump I was looking for. If you contact them and do some questioning they might have what you are looking for. Good luck
  10. Thanks Jonathan, Maybe you can post some pictures if you have it ready. I am thinking of designing some myself.
  11. How do you guys feel about your V8 standing in the rain knowing that lots of water will leak through the engine air ducts in the back bonnet. Maybe there is no need to worry because the designers must have thought about it, but somehow I always feel uncomfortable when it is out there and it rains heavily. I am thinking of making a small plate to cover it up. Any thoughts?
  12. As far as I am concerned, my current gearbox works fine and I am not planning to replace it when it is still ok. However, it is likely that it needs to be replaced at some point. I am always interested in parts that have a higher quality than the original stock ones. If that means investing now to ensure a better one in the future I might be interested if the price is reasonable. I live in Europe and sending an entire gearbox to the USA is not an option. Therefore, is it possible to just purchase the upgraded parts en have them installed by a local Lotus dealer? Can people in Europe make use of this offer as well? How much time (estimate) is involved in replacing the parts. Are there exchange parts involved? Thank you
  13. Hello Richard, I bought one of these and it was better than the original. http://www.esprit4sale.co.uk/Sale/pages/pr...Panel_PART.html Good luck Chris
  14. Hello, great idea, would also be interested and since so many want black I go with that as well. Durability would be most important for me! Chris
  15. I think it all depends on how you drive your car. You can drive 60MPH in third gear, fourth gear and fifth gear. You will cover the same distance in a given period of time but the number of RPM will differ. I have never understand why people focus so much on mileage. I think the mileage to the total number of rotations ratio is more important and will determine engine life. However it is difficult to calculate this figure. Also, driving 5 minutes above 6000 RPM is often more destructive than driving 10 hours at 3000 RPM. I always keep RPM below 3000 during the first 10 minutes of driving. I do a lot of fifth gear cruising. I try to have the gear change to go as smooth as possible. Always press the cluth fully, when changing gears. Never drive high RPM for longer periods. My car should last a lifetime!
