  1. I know someone who bought the dampers from the gentleman in Switzerland......................... As an aside, I've noticed that new & used Evora S dampers seem to appear on Ebay more often than NA dampers. How different are they? Top mounts and springs appear to be the same between S and NA. Would S dampers work OK on a NA Car?
  2. Search over. Bought D.J.'s White & black NA 2+2. Thanks again for all the messages.
  3. Thanks for the advice Barry, I only need one kidney, so now looking to sell one and buy 2 Evoras - you are sure about this aren't you?
  4. Gareth. Thanks for that. I am hoping that the current NA target works out, but if not, one to consider.
  5. A sincere thanks to those who have pm'd me with details of their cars. I know that the 'low miles, low owners etc' thing might sound like a bit of a tall order, but there are cars around that do meet the criteria. You never know, the right one might be just around the corner............ The search is currently on hold. An update or search resumption will follow in the next week or so.
  6. I understand the 'needs to be used' logic. I also have family experience of 2 identical cars bought at the same time from the same dealer. After a few years, one car had more than double the mileage of the other. Both were regularly used, but one less so than the other and both were serviced as per the manufacturer's schedule. After the said few years, the low miler was in much better condition. Car will be used regularly, but unlikely to rack up miles at a big rate. Not thinking about selling. More likely it will be taken off me and recycled as part of an action plan to address the stated climate emergency. Now enough about my warped or otherwise buying logic and on with the search. The right car will appear, it always does.
  7. Yes, I know, but they do exist, as a regular poster has confirmed with his recent purchase.
  8. Hello there. Thanks for the reply. I am looking for a car with fewer miles - there are still a few out there. Thanks again.
  9. Hi. Looking for a nice NA car with no Carlos Fandango mods or accidents/damage. Preferences are for low miles, low owners, FSH, Launch Edition or NA with all 3 packs, 2+2, in a bold colour (less keen on black, dark green etc). Willing to consider cars that don't match all preferences, but in an ideal world.............. Thanks Gordon
  10. Another vote for SJ - had 2 lots of parts from them in last 3 weeks - great service.
  11. Hi from Scotland. Car had a lot of work done by the previous long term owner. Bodywork & paint look to be original apart from the bumpers having had paint. Engine was re-built at Christopher Neil at around 40,000 miles. Mileage now 76,000. It has just had regular maintenance in my ownership and a new set of Pirelli tyres this year - the Goodyear Eagles that were on it had plenty of tread, no cracks and no grip.
  12. A photo of the Esprit and a link to info/photos/clips of some of our previous non-Lotus motoring follies : http://www.edinburghrocks.co.uk/
  13. Hello. Just joined the forum. I have a red 85 Turbo Esprit, which I have had for 8 or 9 years. It was previously owned by Alan Head. I had an Elan +2 S130/4 for around 10 years a good while back, have been a member of Club Lotus for a long time and am also a member of the BVAC which puts on the Classic event at Thirlestane Castle, Lauder in early June. These new fangled Evora things are looking pretty interesting, so the Esprit might get a (used) chum at some point. Cheers
