  1. Just found it, here is the installation manual: http://support.alpine-usa.com/products/documents/IM_iLX-F309_EN_ES_FR.pdf There are multiple settings and it does not look like there will be any issue with fitment. My wife has been asking for Christmas gift ideas and I think I just found it. Actually the model 259 has all the features I need at half the price of 309 model. I have the car undergoing multiple upgrades so once we get to this, I will be sure to post pictures once it is installed.
  2. @pureguava I bought the GT3071R kit from ATS racing. My car is going into the shop next week to have it installed. I should have some feedback shortly and will keep you posted.
  3. Hi Everyone, Over the years, I have been searching for a good, brand name multimedia single DIN option for the Esprit and I think I have finally found one, the Alpine Halo 9: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-nSkXBSLweEB/p_500ILXF309/Alpine-Halo9-ILX-F309.html It seems to have everything with the exception of being able to play CDs. I have seen the double DIN modifications over the years but I did not want to go the route of modifying the dashboard. This option especially with the ability to mount the screen low on the mounting plate looks to be the solution. By chance, has anyone else considered this radio or possibly even installed it and give some feedback? Take care, Jason
  4. Hey Zig, Any recommendation for a company that does the refurb/upgrade to the worn clutch? Thanks.

  6. I always look forward to the new videos each week on Petrolicious! Great car site...I would be more than happy to let them do a story on my car or support any Lotus member who gets their car featured.
  7. I completely agree with getting on Petrolicious and Jay Leno's Garage...these are 2 sites that have a decent following. I actually just made a comment on their Lotus article from about a week ago and stated they should feature an Esprit. I would be happy to follow-up and see if they would like to make it happen. Jason
  8. I have been on the hunt for rear rotors for some time for the Brembo set-up and cannot locate them anywhere at a reasonable cost. I was hoping we would have a cross reference for the rear rotor but no luck to date. There are some available in the UK from PNM Engineering and SJ sports cars but the exchange rate is not favorable at the moment. If you find something, please let me know as well. Jason
  9. Just watched the special and considering over here in the states we have hardly any good auto shows, Top Gear is by far the best. As an Esprit owner, the car in the show made us all proud that it did so well. I enjoyed it...matter of fact, makes me want to take mine out for a cruise now.
  10. Wow! Overall impressive project! Good luck with the car and glad to see another Esprit kept on the road hence with some kickass mods!
  11. I wanted the S4 in white since I was in high school and now I am fortunate enough to have one. I've had it now for almost 12 years and you cannot tell most people it is a car from the 90's they have no idea...most think its new. The car is unreal to drive, it handles like nothing else and I am happy to be in the small club of S4 owners. Plus that wing is the best of the bunch! Jason
  12. Some are absolutely horrific and some others have some decent aspects to them. As we all have been told in life " think twice before you act once". Words to live by...
  13. Great idea for the placement of the radar detector as well. Which one did you go with? I think it says passport.
  14. Thank you all! I thought I was obsessed when I got the Esprit, Kaiden brings it to a whole new level! Great pics Andy, I will check out ebay. Good call.
  15. Hi All- I am proud to announce my first child was born on 3/7/14. His name is Kaiden Jase Fitzpatrick. He is the newest Lotus fan! We just came home after spending 6 days in the hospital and we are all doing great. I am looking forward to watching some F1 racing this weekend (hopefully Lotus will do well) with him! This little guy will be the owner of my Esprit in (many) years to come! Anyone know if they sell infant Lotus clothes? Thanks. Jason
  16. Here is a link to the power acoustik: http://www.amazon.com/Power-Acoustik-PD-718NB-Multimedia-iPod-Certified/dp/B0071NEZGY/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1393811623&sr=1-7&keywords=single+din+dvd+car+stereo#productDetails
  17. I started to look the other night for this very same thing. I came across a radion that is not technically a brand name but it is definitely one that I am going to explore further as it is a single DIN with a face that goes down: Power Acoustik PD718B looks to be 195 USD on Amazon. The reviews are not too bad and there is a GPS add on as well. With GPS for less than 400 USD, I might give this a go.
  18. Excellent tribute to an excellent driver!
  19. That looks kickass Kenny! It really does look like a factory item. The amp install is clean. Good call on the free air speakers, it does not seem that panel is really an enclosure... My spring list is getting bigger than anticipated...lol Jason
  20. The hockey has been great!!
  21. Hey Ben, Thats a much better pic...looks pretty darn good. Wheels are definitely an individual taste but by no means do they ruin the car, the can easily be swapped back to factory and at the same time you are preserving the factory wheels so that is a win-win. I am more jealous that you can drive your car now! We just got hit with another 12" of snow!!
