  1. Didn't Lotus used to own Milbrook at some point?
  2. Key question is why it needed a new front bumper/bonnet and who did the repairs - Looking at the way in which the side trim has been applied I doubt that it was Lotus..
  3. The previous series wasn't all bad either although the Elise should have won (yes I'm biased).
  4. Whilst the dreadful sunroof devalues this car I think you'll need to pay £35k for a really good S3. If you want to buy one that needs work and money then there will be quite a few at c£25k. Mine is in tip top condition and couldn't be bought for £35k (if it was for sale) with an agreed valuation to match. Check out recent magazines for how good S3's are.
  5. I'd have a very good look at the paintwork as the pearlescent white can't be matched if there is a prang and effectively needs the whole car respraying. Brian (identical car, on standby for the motor show) had to have it completely resprayed to get it 100% perfect. Have to say it does look very nice but I wouldn't be taken in thinking it's worth a huge amount more simply because it was a motor show car.
  6. That's an aftermarket sunroof and it's a pity it's there.
  7. Hi Simon I don't know the car but a mate of mine does - he owns the sister car that was at the motor show and is in the exact same colours. I'll ask him. Just checking, it wasn't re registered in the last few years from B61 PEX was it? If so search the forum for a thread about it.
  8. @SparkyAm I right in thinking that the Emira is exactly the same as the Esprit underneath but just different?
  9. @Dan E It really does look like a supercar. I was going to describe it as a junior supercar but I don't think it deserves the junior tag. There isn't an angle I don't like. To me the car looks perfectly proportioned whereas, please don't flame me here, the Evora never quite did. The blue one looks a bit more hunkered down being a display model but the grey one sat as it will be produced and looked 'right'. For choice I wouldn't go with the grey colour as I think some of the design lines are lost but they stood out really well on the blue car. The interior looks bang up to date and the fit and finish appear first class.
  10. Went today and thought the Emira looked even better in the flesh. Lotus had a fab stand which was full of the great and the good including Matt Windle, Russell Carr and Scott Walker. The hospitality with free food and drinks was rather good too.
  11. Fantastic launch, stunning car. Huge congratulations to all at Lotus. Wow!!!
  12. If you're paying somebody else to do it £10k sounds about right assuming that there are no real issues like an engine rebuild required.
  13. Neil Tried sending you a PM but it wouldn't allow me - your box too full or not a paid up member?
  14. Inflation increased, the £26k back in 1998 is now £47k
  15. Thanks Mark Can't really believe the Essex won given some of the truly amazing cars at the event including many in the multi million pound bracket. I understand about 3000 cars were turned away as not being 'interesting' enough to take part. Should really be posting in the what made me happy today section. Still gobsmacked and have a rather nice bottle of Champers to consume.
  16. Well yesterday actually Went for a coffee in our village and saw a young bloke pull into the one and only disabled car parking bay despite there being others available (including etc one next to where he parked). No blue badge - clearly couldn't give a **** as long as he didn't have to walk and extra meter to Costa. I walked passed the coffee shop and saw him inside trying to use his jumper to cover his mouth as he didn't have a mask. I thought, as you do, about telling him not to park in the disabled bay when I suddenly saw two traffic wardens walking towards his car. They duly ticketed his car whilst I waited to see his reaction - it was priceless, made my day.

    Lotus Emira

    I was told by the factory that several people are claiming to be getting No.1...
  18. Agree, what an excellent day. Many thanks to Greg and his team who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Learned loads including that ValetPro make their own products. Top team, top day, donation made.
  19. @LotusFella Not sayin' they're not worth it but £12k for some calipers and pads..?
  20. Not just the neighbours but the whole street? 🤔
