  1. Burton is about an hour so worth a look. I'll give them a call. Thanks
  2. The car was previously looked after by SWLC. It's a hell of a long drive for a service though. I'm hoping to find someone nearer.
  3. Hi all, Are there any Esprit owners in the East Mids that can recommend a good place to get an Esprit V8 serviced and MOT'd? Central Lotus in Nottingham is the closest to me geographically but I get the impression they are more geared up for the current range rather than the classic models. Any experience of them or another garage? Cheers
  4. Hi all, my newly acquired Esprit V8 is due a service and MOT next month. Looking at the service history the belts were last done in 2018, which was only about 3,500 miles ago. According to my owners manual belts should be changed every 8 years or 72K miles. Is that sill considered a reasonable interval? The reason I ask is that the previous owner had the belts changed more frequently than that. Many thanks.
  5. 😂 Just a filter, although this is how I see the car in my minds eye.
  6. That's a lovely looking Excel. A credit to the owner 👍
  7. Thanks, it's taken me nearly 3 years to find the "right" spec in the right condition. It's been worth the wait.
  8. I've been watching these auctions with interest having just bought my first Esprit. The Essex Turbo looked magnificent. I'm surprised the reserves were set so high on the GT and Sport 350. Are vendors over-valuing Esprits at the moment? Everything listed S$ or later seems to be £35K+.
  9. Hi all I'm a life-long Lotus fan and finally got 'round to buying one 😄
