  1. Sounds and looks great Scotty, will hopefully get out and about with you chaps at some point🤞
  2. X 2 for this please, just so I'm not missed as I haven't received the valet kit yet. Also, a tad unrelated but any eta about car covers? Else I may have to swap addresses
  3. Thanks! Safe to say I think its turned out pretty well in the end! Always browsing to see if another s1 pops up Cheers, I've been going to Steve for a few years now. He gave it a good once over before applying ceramics as I've never trusted myself with them I'm near woodville/Swadlincote, are you east mids? Nice picture! Was about to say I recognise that setup, Lovely to see how central has progressed Yeah still gutted, but I guess these things happen. It's take my mind off it for sure though, the mrs likes it too which is a relief and will actually drive it😅
  4. Waited a fair old while but have finally got my hands on the Exige! Had it a few weeks now, amazing machine, still in awe. Some pictures to do the talking:
  5. And after, can post a few close ups when I'm back tomorrow.
  6. I recently did a few bits to my garage in a bid to modernize it, still yet to board the walls or paint and do the loft. Nothing special - Just a standard single garage (sadly its not bigger), I did the floor with epoxy resin - The previous home owners did it with epoxy paint direct onto the concrete and the product failed within 2-3 years and wasn't hard wearing at all. I'll dig out a few before and after pictures, but its turned out great - Smooth surface, harder wearing that concrete, easy to clean, self leveling (providing existing surface is in good nick)

  8. Sure is! Massive fan of the esprits in the old pearl white
  9. Yes, brand new, pulled the trigger on it November last year. The red compliment the msg very well, would have been my next colour choice for certain. Unfortunately I'm still away so can't view in person but I'll be going ahead with the red scratches😁
  10. It lives, buzzing! Well worth the wait and can't wait to see it in person! Came with red cat scratches though, admittedly wasn't a fan at first but is a nice subtle contrast and is growing on me.
  11. Wait, so they don't even map it post all the work done? Surely not, I know most of the items for 475 are bolt ons but it could still run lean if not properly mapped
  12. Nice, me too! Well I'm on the borders between Derbyshire and Leicestershire. Lovely choice of colour!
  13. Giddy to say the least! Had a S1 beforehand but was sadly shortlived, managed to test drive a 410 prior to lockdown and was quite shocked at how civilised it can be! About 3 months, build started end of November/beginning of December for a mid Feb finish and delivery hopefully march 1st on a 21 plate
  14. I see the type 79 - 430 is up for sale as well, pity really as I placed an order for a 430 the other week through connor at Central lotus! Do love the t25/79's though In the end I went for one in pearl white with a fair few extras, I'll keep it a surprise and will let the pictures do the talking when I get some.
