  1. Hi Albsure, If you do indeed have a blue one that will be 4 of the 5 ever built now found. With the LE numbers being 6 me, 9 you, 10 and 13. Need any info. send me personal msg with you e-mail address and I will be glad to help. One of the other blue ones No.10.
  2. Hi Guys You may be interested in this, which i have just posted in the Esprit Chat Forum page. Lotus Esprit Turbo S3 HC Turbo Charger Wastegate Sticking Problem and Its Once & For All Fix Ever had this problem. After period of not using the car all seems fine when it starts up, idles and rev’s fine with no load on the engine. But take it for a drive and all is not well. If you apply anything other than light throttle the boost rises rapidly/exceeds the normal max/the boost limiter kicks in chopping the ignition and due to over fuelling/excessive boost the engine back fires with a very loud bang and a sudden/harsh loss of power/acceleration. The same fix can be applied to all versions of the Garrett/Ham Standard wastegate. The attached details the problem and the once and for all fix.

  4. Hi All, Sorry I wont be able to make it. I did just have a look on the show web site and it states registration is closed, so they may already have a full entry. But you will hopefully be able to upstage the main show, with a show of your own in the visitors car park.
  5. Ok guys and gals need help. As some of you know I am currently undertaking a front end suspension and cooling, long overdue, maintenance/overhaul on my 1987 Esprit Turbo HC and I need many many parts. In your experience which is the best one stop shop for everything I am going to need. SJ Sports cars Lotus Bits Esprit Engineering Other I used to use Fiberglass Services but they are no longer trading. Your thoughts would be very much appreciated.

  7. Hi Megan and Dave, firstly many thanks to you both for you hospitality and welcome to your home on the 28th. I had a great time and am sure everyone else did, judging by the many comments posted.
  8. Hi Spyros, Great to meet up again, totally agree with your comments great cars and gardens, the gardens were past their best but still very nice. The guy I was talking to, standing with his back to you, was Tony Saxon, he owns the other Lotus Cortina which was just to the left of my car/the other side of the drive through gap. When I finished my Lunch I go up to come and have a look at your Esprit but you had gone. Tony and I have had or own show before, Herts Auto Show in 2017 - see attached.
  9. Would be great to see you. Good luck for the game. must do a thankyou to everyone for Dave and Megan's event, job for tomorrow.
  10. Capel Manor Classic Car Show Sun 5 Sept 2021 - Enfield Middlesex. Anyone going to this. I just booked as exhibitor £10.84/car. 32 places left as of a few minutes ago when I booked my ticket. See link below for details of the show. My Esprit Turbo is still in bits so it will be my Mk1 Lotus Cortina which will be on show. https://www.capelmanorgardens.co.uk/.../classic-and...
