  1. I'm trying to work out if I can make this (@LifeInTheFastWayne on Insta), but would be heading over from Manchester. Are there any drives planned after C&M? I'm also thinking I might stay somewhere around there Saturday night and go to the Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble on the Sunday
  2. Sorry my email notifications were going to junk and I was also away. Definitely up for some drives, and have linked up with a few other people on WhatsApp with Lotus's too.
  3. Looks awesome... love the wheels!
  4. Thanks... I don't think Bristol council will have liked my parking position for it lol
  5. Thanks Martin, I'm already enjoying it immensely I am near Manchester Dunc. I'll be taking great care on the car, don't worry... it's a lot of fun and more smiles per mile than anything else I've owned. I'll have a look at that event for sure!
  6. Purchased from Howards Lotus in Weston-Super-Mare, and Johnathan, the salesman was fantastic. Very accommodating and knowledgable. On the way back up to Manchester we made a few stops, and I'm nothing but impressed with the car. Can't wait to take it on some runs, hopefully meeting some of you along the way.
  7. Ah that's a shame. I wasn't all that impressed with the driving going on tbh, although it's 10 times better than I could do.
  8. I read the comments and apparently it has 400bhp! It looks like the gearing is way too short on the Lotus, and It just bounces off the limiter from half way down the straight.
  9. ...and which bank is best to rob to pay for it? Short gearing but what a gearbox to have
  10. Thanks, will definitely be giving my opinions soon Good to hear; a little bit anxious about the decision until I get the keys
  11. I'd prefer lined in that case. Doesn't look like there's too much around at the moment
  12. Are there any good recommendations of places I can pick up a soft top kit for the coupe? I believe there's a bit of modification needed (any help with that too?), but I'd like the soft roof option come summer time, as it's unlikely I'll be surpassing 140mph on the M60 I'd like to limit the expense as much as possible, so don't mind used either.
  13. I've driven a couple of Alfa 4C's. On the road, I found it very eventful, but too much so. You'd have to take it to Alfaworks for a geometry adjustment to make it a true proposition in the UK, or it tramlines everywhere you go, and really badly too. I took a 4C up a runway and then turned in at around 100mph at the top of it, so hardly a great test, but I didn't get any buzz from it at all. I guess there must be some greatness to the car, but at the same time, I doubt it could beat the Lotus in terms of feel. I felt like the steering wasn't all that talkative and everything was just a little bit "softer" to a degree.
