    My son measured Stan the Maine Coon yesterday stretched out from front paws to the end of his tail 3ft 9inches. A little bit of a shame earlier we had to cut the new extension floor up as one of the builders had managed to screed him under the suspended floor. 😃. Wife was massively stressed

    It is what Lotus is all about isn’t it having a small engine and handling like a dream. Funnily enough took the wifes 335i BMW Grand Coupe thing today, mainly because the van was blocked in by the builders, god knows how much that thing weights and what BHP it has, but I needed to get to screwfix (again) before it closed stuck it in sport and you could argue no one needs anything faster than that. I hate BMWs but I have to say it was pretty good apart from you have to push the off button twice to turn it off I mean wtf

    I really don’t get this thing about bhp it is madness when you think about it, the only car I have owned and used on the track was my S1 Elise and it was nothing short of perfect with 118bhp. 6 months ago I went out with @Bibs in his Evora I have no idea with the mods he has or what bhp it has but I can tell you that was way quick enough for the road and probably most tracks . When I done the lotus academy I was third quickest on the day, then I went around with Alistair McQueen after he had finished his roll up and honestly I reckon he would put an S1 Elise around any track quicker than I could put a 430bhp Evora around it. Valuable lesson leant. that’s why I will go for the i4 and spend any other money on learning how to drive it quickly, also I like the fact that my esprit is a 4 pot and I think Colin and Mike K would approve
  4. She doesn’t do tents and I don’t have a tent 😂
  5. Totally agree the dark grey didn’t work for me, but what an amazing “adopt Clarkson voice” machineeeee.
  6. @Bazza 907 seriously how good did it look? Sparkles and I spent the whole journey down there not thinking we would love it THEN we saw it………….😍
  7. Killed the lines for me, we had a chat with Mark from Lotus and the marketing dept specified the two colours at FOS. I get that as they need a new audience and some like a subtle shade. I personally just hope by the time they get the 4 pot production going I can have Military Grey with red leather the thing is @Evotion I have had a Lotus for over 20 years ( with a small break) and I love the fact that everyone and I mean everyone from the factory is approachable, normal and actually interested in your view. Did you notice in the Ferrari part it was cordoned off? That is the difference you need to adjust to
  8. The V6 is not even on the radar for me. I love an Amg Merc had a couple and the Esprit is a 4 pot turbo just seems right to me, ahem and it is cheaper
  9. Please let me answer, please let me answer 😀
  10. We did and then ended up talking to a few other lotus owners and the worlds most unlucky esprit owner 😂😂
  11. so this was the spec of the blue one at FOS. I think i would go for 1. Full Black pack 2. Colour brake calipers 3. 20" Wheels, silver 4. KEF Stereo 5. not sure what the packs are all about so would need more info on that, driver pack probably not as this will be a road car unless it sits lower with it then it is a must. Also depends on cost obvs
  12. @Bibs not strictly true as I went all the way through the process and they didn't take Amex which is ridiculous!! I am going to order this afternoon after I have had a good read up. Very disappointed you only have a Blue Amex 🤣
  13. Andy, I have got to be honest both myself and Sparkles were a little underwhelmed on the Super fan launch, we spoke about this on the way down in the car. THEN when you see it in the flesh, it pops your head gorgeous, not in the dark grey so much but the blue. The pictures just do not do it justice. This I think would be my spec
  14. And cheers for the ticket Sir much appreciated. Day should be amazing, then Sparkles is staying in the pub up the road from me, that should be a nice sedate one 😂
  15. Nice, a mate of mine had one of them then a Yellow A610 drove both extensively as he was my flat mate at the time and I had a £400 Vauxhall Astra. Both brilliant cars
  16. Hey Greg sorry I missed this and rudely didn’t even mention I wasn’t coming. I am in the middle of a house build and it is pretty manic to be honest. I actually had in my head that this was in July. sorry mate I will make a donation next week to try to make up for it
  17. Prices started going up when I started my extension/refurb project they will come down immediately I finish. I am lucky like that. Say 10 weeks and all materials will be at an all time low which will be exactly 97 minutes after the last bit of cladding goes on.
  18. This is meant to look like a 60s house with a modern separate extension. This went up today
  19. Pretty chuffed this young man turned up the other day with his drone, totally out of his way to take some pictures of our build 13 days in. Cheers @Bibs the first floor went in today
  20. Oh love a free bar wedding. Congrats mate. 👍 Been dragged accidentally into Lego Masters so got to go
