  1. I am pretty sure the featured Schmee Elise 250cup is quite special as i would imagine it is the heaviest final cup250 produced.
  2. Really sorry my younger son has just been accepted to a university in Edinburgh and their open day is Saturday morning and I’m flying him over Friday night so unfortunately I’m not going to be there. Really was looking forward to it but I’ll try to be there for the next one.
  3. It looks nice (for an SUV) though doesn't excite me unfortunately. Complicate and add weight?
  4. Tentative (not sure when family come over to visit for a weekend visit from Gb yet) Could do Sunday morning 24th or Thursday evening or Friday evening
  5. Sounds good I’m in Ballymoney happy to meet up for coffee sometime 👍
  6. I’ll be up for a meet for sure great idea
  7. Picked up my Elise this week - and I'm absolutely in love with it. Drove it from B&C to Northern Ireland and done a couple of drives out, almost at 500 miles already. It's everything I wanted I more.
  8. @TonyKL that colour is stunning - love it
  9. Got back from B&C that I visited yesterday and met my car for the first time, as well as Jamie and what a gent, really looked after me. The viewing exceeded expectations and I am very happy with what I have ordered. I missed yours @TonyKLas your car was being prepped at the time - though having seem many other Cups there, one of which is red I know it'll be stunning and I'm sure you'll be delighted too. @888mattd love the spec you wrote especially the seats, really suit the body.
  10. I went for 'evora' silver, I was very tempted with red, when I saw all the different colours on the cars I liked them all (though dodge stir crazy purple i wasn't sure about). I'm in Northern Ireland so green or orange are a tad loaded and could be targeted (literally) for the wrong reasons! I j guess it arrived in the snow but is being prepped now.
  11. Ballymoney, Northern Ireland, home of the 'King of the Road' Joey Dunlop and brother Robert. There's a memorial park here for them.
  12. I believe the 410 cost £85,600 in the UK, compared to £99,800 for the Cup 430.
  13. This thread is a right laugh! And this surprised me as I am pretty sure it is the North West 200 (Portrush to Coleraine, Northern Ireland), I know cause I live almost on the track - it's mental! I wanna get a PS5 now
  14. Yes, a wally indeed! He has some amazing cars and clearly has the moolah to keep buying them (or they keep sending them). I watched his 'I'm going to buy a lotus elise' video a few months ago and he came across as a spoilt brat. He bought it on a whim, didn't do his research properly, and then moaned lots (online) when he received it to the point of Lotus going out their way to try and 'fix' things, with a special visit and a few laps of their circuit. Buying my first Lotus was a lifelong dream which for various reasons some 'life stuff' always got in the way. Having waited since February last year my 240 is waiting at B&C being prepped for delivery. I am so excited and rightly so - I am sure my experience will be very different to his, partly due to having saved up for a long time, doing my research and buying what I've always wanted. This guy sounds like he has many first world
