  1. I know where there are some for sale if thats what you meant.
  2. I still do not think that any car made in Japan will ever achieve the real classic status. I am still not impressed with the Datsun Zs nor the GTR. They just do not have that Classic look about them Roger I think you will find that the 240Z is recognised as the first Japanese Classic Car,and quite rightly so in my estimation greenman
  3. [Anyway, first time out on some windy roads. VERY different driving experience compared to D/C ways and compared to my FWD Audi. I found it quite difficult to take corners at any speed whilst feeling in control. i.e I didnt feel in control. Is this normal when moving to a RWD car?] Handling is where these cars should excel,from how you describe it could be down to one thing (as already stated,tyre pressure) or a combination of several. Are the tyres all one brand ,and recommended for S3? What are the shock absorbers like?not uncommon to pass mot and still be naff Are left-hand bends worse than right-hand or vice versa? Wheel alignment and tracking Not having driven your model I dont know how a good one should handle,but when mine was on the road the cornering was the best part of it, Trevor

  14. Good to get out and meet up,although my trip was a shorter version it was still very enjoyable. Set out for the long haul but had my parole reprieved whilst at the Gingerbread Man. Split off from the group west of Shrewsbury and made my way up the A5 towards Oswestry,then aimed for Ellesmere passing through a village called Babes In The Wood.Encountered a few drops of rain at Ellesmere but not enough too warrant the the wipers,the roads were good so most enjoyable, arrived home feeling rejuvenated. So Thanks people for getting me out Trev
  15. Hi Alex Possibly just moisture getting in,is there any way you could spray some WD40 lightly in the pod,not so that it will enter the dials Trev
  16. Hi Simon, Assumed the shelf could not have been yours,for how would the seller have known what car the shelf was for? if he had just found it. That would only have been possible if they watched you drive off leaving it . Glad you sorted Trev

  21. Hi Robert. Welcome aboard, I notice that you are using Esprit Cars,would just like too say that I purchased my Esprit through them, and was very dissapointed with the way that certain items had been damaged during their working on the car. I certainly would not use them. Trevor
