  1. Thanks Atwell and Chris. I did have a look at the Tayna website and I'll check out the Halfords battery – good to know also that they do the converters. I just remember someone saying that the Esprits needed a battery with a lot of oomph!
  2. Hi all Just wondering what batteries are recommended (UK) for a normally aspirated S3? Currently I have a Lucas Classic LC075 12v 60AH 540A but it needs replacing and I don't think these are available anymore. Thanks
  3. Around 5:30pm 22 August, heading north. Very nice!
  4. Just had this happen! Luckily was filling up and had already opened one cap. So now both are unlocked but screw in OK and it doesn't seem like they could come loose. Has this happened to anyone and is it OK to leave them unlocked, or should I get this sorted out as soon as possible? Thanks
  5. No airbag in the S3 unless I blow up a balloon and put it in the glove box So should be OK. Hoping to take him out on Saturday for a drive. I've put him in the car before and let him have fun with the switches etc which he loved - especially making the lights go up and down!
  6. THanks Bibs. Some good advice in there. I think I shall give it a go.
  7. Has anyone tried putting a baby seat in an S3 Esprit? I'm thinking in the passenger seat rather than anywhere precarious! I think my 3-year-old would love a ride in it. He's had fun playing with the levers and switches but I haven't yet taken him out and about. Thanks Richard
  8. May have been the same D-reg normally-aspirated that parked behind my D-reg normally-aspirated in Chipping Norton once.
  9. Seen driving down Green Lane 14 April at 5.20pm
  10. Ah so close. Right specification but not me. If it had been in Essex it could well have been :-)
  11. Seen in Green Lane, Ilford, about a week ago.
  12. Saw a black V8 SE or recent Esprit model (by the look of it) top of Drury Lane, London, this evening around 9-9.30ish. Went into a car park back of one of the theaters I think.
  13. I think you were right - dodgy earth connection on the battery. Went to start the car today and went dead again - checked the battery and yes, the earth connection was very loose. Have tightened up and seems ok now :-)
