  1. Lotusbits are the folk to talk to if you want to make your car go faster. Pete
  2. Exhaust does that on the G Esprit. Perfectly normal! Festive kisses to all. See you on the other side! 🎅🎅🎅🎅
  3. She didn't miss a beat. The Triumph however spent more time broken than running!
  4. The chap whose company usually supplies the cars is a friend and they needed something different so as not to repeat the same cars. He looked after the car and has owned Esprits previously so happy to let him take it.
  5. My Esprit in Series 10 Episode 19. 😎
  6. Test Valley Golf Club, Overton.
  7. I had shingles a few years ago so proof it's not just old farts that get it. Suggest bathing in Doombar - that's all it's good for anyway 😆 Get well soon!

    For those who laughed at my last post...

    Esprit footwear

    I'm a size 8 and can comfortably drive in these. No joke.
  10. Try Lotusbits. I bought a pair of the brackets off them a few weeks ago. They came with the dowels intact but they may be willing to separate them. Pete
  11. Only if it was a range rover that flashed you. I grew up near Stratford and my folks still live there. Had my S2 for 24 years but now with 2 kids, don't get to use it as much as I used to.
  12. Hurrah! Are you local to Stratford? I was visiting my parents who live up that way when you drove past, sadly not in my Esprit on that occasion...
  13. You must have a functioning petrol station near Whitchurch or did you fill up in France Kevin?
  14. @omegamanMine's a UK car. If you have the measurements try somewhere like Namrick assuming you're UK based. Pete
  15. Compared to a modern 2l diesel hatchback, my S2 is slow so not worth the embarrassment of even trying to have a go even if I wanted to.
  16. With your radiator cowl/duct, whilst not original I would recommend adding some thin sheet metal to the corners where the braces bolt through or even along the width of the cowling edge to act as a skid. You will ground the cowling, guaranteed. Pete
  17. @omegamanI'll try and get some better pics if you need them. Just let me know. Pete
  18. There is a small right angled bracket that bolts to your new bracket (top right hand hole in your pic) onto which a P clip bolts to support the speedo cable. Pete
  19. On the day I joined: it was Monday, under the sign of Pisces (see zodiac on March 14, 2005). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of March people in US were listening to Candy Shop by 50 Cent. In UK Over And Over by Nelly featuring Tim McGraw was in the top 5 hits. Guess Who, directed by Kevin Rodney Sullivan, was one of the most viewed movie released in 2005 while The Killing Club by Marcie Walsh with Michael Malone was one of the best selling book. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Winter Assault or Against All Odds.
  20. 12 or 19 October for me. Away the last week. Going for an early beer at the Wonston on Monday about 5.30ish if anyone fancies joining. Pete
  21. @Jimmy Hi Jimmy, SRS4 is the product code that I used and fitted nicely on my car. Pete
  22. @gvy Yes Geert it does fit. Not perfect but it's as close as I could find to the original in my picture. Pete
