  1. I woke up to find my invite sitting in my inbox this morning (Auckland NZ).. super excited to be joining this event. Kicking off at 6am NZ time isn't such a bad way to start the day! Thanks for organizing this @Bibs!
  2. Well it's fair to say it's been a while.. so much that 'I'm a newbie' yet a member for 5 years lol. Anyway, I saw my old post and never did load the pics with Wing. They also gave me some side scoops too (as they stuffed up the initial order). Not much has changed since then other than replacing the radiator with an Aluminium one and a new AC Compressor. Pics below - me with my Daughter near the satelite station in Warkworth, NZ (North of Auckland). The next is parked by the Waikato River in Mercer (South of Auckland /North Waikato).
  3. Well I'd love to take part from way, way down under in New Zealand... Even if it will be in the middle of the night! I don't think I can afford a deposit just yet.. but I recall seeing that Green Launch Elise S1 at the Earls Court Motor Show and Talking to Linda Colvill. She said it's something to aspire to. Something I never forgot.. and eventually got an Elise S2 7 years ago and now a proud owner of an Evora S1 NZ. What's next.. well never say never...
  4. I placed an order last year from him. A great sounding Evora 3rd Cat delete. Can I suggest (if you haven't already) posting on either the club lotus facebook page or the 'nz lotus community' facebook page.
  5. HI Terry, I would suggest starting with a call to Ken at KW Historics ( He will know a lot about the import process and may know of any cars that maybe for sale. There are not to many that come up for sale, having said that there is club member selling their 90's Esprit (on trademe at the time of writing).
  6. Hi Mark, Sorry for the delay in responding. Depending on where you are based, you may want to give Hyperdrive a go. I got my R888's for my Elise from them and they did a very good deal at the time, although that was probably over 4 years ago.
  7. Hi Alex, Only just noticed your question, so very sorry for the delay! It's a fairly difficult one to answer without a little more info on the specific model, spec, extras, etc. Personally I would have thought in high $40k's to low $50k's as a best guess. @David in NZ Do you have a better idea on prices?
  8. Got a new camera so decided to take a few pics of the new look... There will be some more soon when the GT4 wing arrives.
  9. Welcome to the forum Mark. I would also try these guys... This also includes track day cover (Conditions apply).
  10. And here are a few photos of the latest changes.. GT4 wing to follow in about 1 months time... Along with a 2Bular 3rd cat delete and Boe CAI.
  11. Wrapping a car here in NZ is fairly expensive. I recently had the roof and mirrors re-done due to the quality of the first job not being up to the standard. Also the black didn't quite match the black on the car. I've had this redone plus did stripes on the side like the 410..a bit tongue in cheek, but also added the 310 Sport 🙂 (Which it won't be far off, once few more mods are completed) and the 'shark fin' stone chip side graphic of the new GT430 in satin black. I also had the front area in front of the windscreen completed in matching gloss black. I also had the rear of the car where the lights and lotus lettering are, changed to satin black for the 'bandit mask' look. Finally I had the brakes changed in colour from black to yellow with black lotus. lettering. The whole job was around $2700 NZD approx 1400 pounds. I have a WinAce GT4 Wing on the way to complete the latest changes...
  12. Hey Mark, Good to see you have the Esprit on the road again. We have a run planned around West Auckland beaches in a couple of weeks. You should join in if you have the time? Cheers Rich
  13. How much longer to the 'official' release... it's nearly midnight and the 21st! here in New Zealand... Hurry up Lotus!
  14. Maybe this is going into production...
