    So does this mean all gt430s are now sold and in private hands? Ah just had a look, still 2 available.

    Hey, looks like Cilla is still working her magic. Perhaps we could swap some pics. I'll contact you directly. Thanks guys. This was a quick meetup prior to going on to caffeine and machines 8am this morning. It's a group around the Swindon area

    Well I have th cf ones, so would've been happy to do a swap for a pair of the 430s.

    Yeah I realised that after a little while. I'd like the comfort seats yes. I've had a quote and I could put a deposit down on a house for what they cost to order new. The ones in press car pictures are ultimately what I'm after. Do you know of any? Thanks

    Hi, did you have the original comfy padded seats in before changing them? If so, do you still have them? Thanks Hi, so is anyone going to c&m this coming weekend?

    Twas me! Had a service, going on a road trip so was happy with Williams guys to use it for a bit to ensure it was running well. Oh and had a couple of mods done to it... And no it's not for sale!!!!!!

    Nice! Are your roads made out of...carbon fibre??
  8. Nick...what they said wierdly though in bright sunlight mine does have a hint of green but you won't catch me on the M11 in anything other than the swift. I tried to catch Trevsked at hethel too, elusive guy that Trevor but then I was late due to hanging around at Newmarket for mate who wanted the other ticket!
  9. Last Bicester Heritage of the year and my first picture post of my gt430. Managed to sneak it on the end of another lotus club!
  10. Always open to new ideas Kimbers
  11. Didn't mean to suggest you didn't Kimbers Auction rooms, strange places. Spend almost all the time the bidding is going on bored out my skull...but when my lot comes up I get a huge head rush lol Sometimes the value of buying something is of a lesser importance than having it in the collection which is why occasionally I overpay. antique shop guys?!?
  12. Hi, think that was me on way to stow. Just been to the Bicester heritage event which was fantastic! Glad we didn't go over that narrow bridge at the same time!
  13. Kimbers, I buy a lot of antique pottery on ebay and spend a fair bit of time at aunctions and antique fairs. I have experience of all and found the following to be true; 1. What you think something will go for is not always the case. Some peices you expect to pay a lot for can turn out cheap and vice versa. 2. You will only ever sell/buy something for what it is worth at that point in time. Past history in relation to what I collect is irrelevant to a point - even if recent. I suspect silver maybe more stable and reliable. 3. In order to sell, you need to know what you are
  14. Hi Pete, yes my bad about getting the manufacturer wrong so I should've said sparco's. But the press car has sparco's with the red stripes which is effectively what I would like.
  15. I love the seats in the gt430 but they pinch on my thighs slightly. They are mega comfortable - until that is I sat in the display model at hethel this last weekend. I felt like I melted into the seat and it was just so..lovely and even more comfortable. So at some point I would like to swap my seats out. So if there is any gt430 owners out there with the red stripe recados that wish to exchange because they feel they are too much like a care home equivalent then come chat to me
  16. Hi Dave, I was sorry to see you on the side of the road. If I'm honest I was pleased you had just broken down....the boys in blue made me fear some off roading had occured - especially given the large Silverstone tribe had left Newmarket minutes before. Hope all is well. Bibs, you are a star....thank you for the invite and I also appriciate all the effort you and your team put in. Well worth 8 hours in the car today (well it is a lotus so worth it anyhow). Also, thanks for showing me how the alarm works. Im actually deaf in one ear at the moment and was subconsciously laughing at someone'
  17. I may regret this, but if you are going through Cheltenham to join up with the Fossway then give me a tinkle! 5pm. Oh dear.
  18. Ah they are for mobility only i.e people with crutches, injuries, oaps etc. And the odd driver of course
  19. I was there, if you saw any of the woody buggies being driven around I was driving one of those over the three days!
  20. If that was Amies demo car then I think I drove that about a month ago. Very nice car! Congrats on the purchase.
  21. I crashed my TVR and was too scared to get another one.
  22. Wrote this in the other thread too; This happened in my V6 as well. My technically ability to describe something is somewhat limited but I likened it to the sound of dragging a tray around under the car. I thought it was gearbox and had been told the exposed gearage (like yours) sorted this. Happens in the GT430 at low speed too i'm afraid. Ho hum. Doesn't bother me as I'm used to it.

  24. Hi Bibs, as discussed, I would love to take up your offer of a ticket and also place the gt430 on the stand. Of course, if there is a cost just let me know and I'll sort the payment. Email to follow. Thanks all and looking forward to it.
