  7. I have the battery of my LH 1990 Esprit Turbo SE permanently connected with a trickle charger . It is connected with a male plug and a female plug (with spring actuated dirt cap) which is mounted in the upper part of the left rear wheel arch (invisible) as well as an internal intermediate fuse; all directly connected to the battery by a separate wire. I use a cheap Chinese made autom. controlled trickle charger ( GBP 15,-). This way I always have the right tension on the car Never had any trouble during my 26 years of ownership. My maintenance free battery was replaced

  11. I have a 1990 Esprit Turbo SE with the battery permanently connected to a trickle charger.......... due to the permanent trickle charger connection my average battery life is only 5,5 to 6,0 years. Since 1993 I renewed my battery > 5 times . Every time I used the standard 62 Ah DIN type 562.19 (DIN = German Industrie Norm) which is perfectly fitting; has an excellent/sufficient starting power and is maintenance free This DIN type you will find at all major batt. manufacturers as Exide, Varta, Bosch etc. and also B-brand batteries which are always ok, since the manufacturing

  14. Hi Mark, Thanks for your interesting reply. All the best.......... Best regards, Ruud
  15. Hi MarkL, Thanks for your reply. Nice, that your data and my observations seem to be matching............it is a small (Lotus)world actually. BTW: As far as I remember I never saw your SE advertised at mobile.de or AutoScout24.de.......how did you notice it? Long time ago however I noticed it to be offered for sale by Classic Park-Netherlands as part of their inventory. Note: my SE had 25.000 km on the odo in 1993 and now shows 52.000 km; the overall condition is still nearly as new; the interior is blue/grey leather with a burr elm dashboard; the same dashboard as you
