  6. From my observations, asking prices for Esprits are generally descending clearly since approx. Oct. 2017 / end 2017, after a couple of years of slight, however clear increases. It is the general trend for most popular Classics of all Brands as far as I can observe for the moment...........

  8. @ Tocus, Indeed, probabely in spring interest will come back.......... It is a very nice S4s and imo it certainly makes a chance to nearly meet your target.......... Good luck!
  9. The recent Esprit price increases seem to run out of steam and seem to be on their way back.........as far as I can observe ....... The same with Porsches and other "popular exotics".......... Several reductions on previous Esprit prices in a couple of ads........ (Local) auction reserve prices more frequently not met.... Is this occasionally or trendy? May be my observations are wrong?
  10. What a beauty, fabulous,......incredible.........congratulations........much pleasure with ownership!!!
  11. Ref: previous post Well.....strange......the red "sold" sticker is removed today (on his website as well as autoscout24 and mobile.de); obviously something went wrong in the sales process.........let's see
  12. Obviously sold......from stock of Dutch Lotus Importer van der Kooi...... http://vanderkooisportscars.nl/ Lotus Esprit 3.5 V8 SE.....07/2001.........€ 68.895,- (advertised) Was approx. 6 months on Autoscout24....... as far as knowing Mr. van der Kooi, his max. discount would have been approx € 10.000,- on the sales price of € 68.895,-..........
  13. Such ss sill protectors for the Esprit were not supplied with my LH 1990 Turbo SE . They were some years ago manufactured and sold as an accessory by a private UK guy (owing an Esprit that time) which was advertising on some UK Lotus forum as LEW, LEF or probably even this forum......... I purchased and sticked them on my 1990 Esprit Turbo SE that time......
  14. With my 1990 Turbo SE I 2 times had the same problem.......each time I dis-/assembled the electr. window motor.; which is a lot of work.............each time everything then was ok again I think afterwards (in my case at least) slight / minor corrosion between carbon brush and copper collector was the cause of the malfunction each time.........even since my car is always garaged and since I am quite succesful in avoiding rainy conditions during driving....... I learned better then and with 2 more malfunctioning occaisions I gave them a hard scare / pop by slamming the open door into the closing position while at the same time during the slam pressing the electr. window switch in its required up or down position / mode. Sometimes it was necessary to do this several times. The best to do this is while sitting in the car during the "quick / instant repair" operation............. Each time this helped me to start the electr. motor again in order to lower or raise the window. Good luck, Ruud
  15. That Dutch Lambo owner, Peter Pelgrum (53) from Rhenen-Holland, recently swapped his Diablo (upper picture) for a Gallardo and was spotted on the German Autobahn on his way to Italy............
  16. ***** Esprit SE pictures from a different / non traditional angle sometimes are interesting imo..........

  22. A very interesting strategy for the future at Mazda for the period untill it has been proven that electric cars will have a major market share.......... Furthermore Mazda has running fuel-cell cars for a long time already................One of the main topics is hydrogen fuel cell technology, which Toyota could share with Mazda. On the other hand, Toyota would like to use Mazda’s Skyactiv engines, which boost stellar fuel economy and strong performance. .............."There’s a lot to be said for zigging when the rest of the world is zagging, for betting on yourself and your experience instead of chasing trends".............

  24. My cover........ manufactured in 1990........still fits very well after so many years........ (sorry.......did not take time for straightening it all over)
  25. ........Times of undervaluation seems to be a passed station, particularly for the wider geographically accepted LHD ones......... The UK will follow with improved valuations for RHD ones with limited geographical coverage......... It is a matter of fact that the LHD potential buyer's market (even excepted the USA) is 5x bigger as the RHD UK market ........
