  1. Thank you, you should have come over and said hello. The DS Cabriolet was lovely, I had to point it out to lots of visitors.
  2. Hi Paul, Glad you had a good time and thank you for your kind words. It was great to meet you and have your lovely Esprit gracing our stand. Hope to see you again soon. Best regards Jon & Michelle P.s In the last photo, chap scratching his head and the younger one to his left are the father and son engine builders for car SOS, they came to chat and look over the different cars on our stand every day.
  3. Hi All, We still have spaces at the British Motor Show if anyone is interested ( only 1 space for Thursday press day) Will need to be quick as we have to give vehicle details (Reg, Model) to the organisers. The event is free entry for the driver and the NKLG membership fee has been dropped. Cheers Jon
  4. Hi Shak, Welcome to TLF you are in the right place if you're not sure on which Lotus to buy.
  5. Spotted last night in the Moody Mare car park. North Kent Lotus Group club night every second Wednesday. Come and say hello if you're there again👋
  6. Hi All, If any of you are interested in visiting the British Motor Show that runs from the 19th - 22nd August the link below will give you a 10% discount on adult or family tickets. If you go to and then enter the code NKLOTUS a 10% discount will be applied. If you do attend please come and introduce yourselves, we ( North Kent Lotus Group) will be on stand CB16 in the classics arena. If you fancy attending one of the days with your Lotus PM me and I will try to get you on the list. Cheers Jon
  7. Stunning photos mate, It was a great evening. Thanks MSC and an extra big thank you to Martin who stopped to help after a wire detached itself from the fuel pump on Michelle's Elan.
  8. Hi Paul, Thanks for getting back to us, it would be great to have you and your Esprit attend. You would need to be on site before 9am until 6pm
  9. Hi All, North Kent Lotus Group have been invited to represent Lotus at The British Motor Show, Farnborough International, GU14 6FD, Thursday 19th - Sunday 22nd August. We would like to extend this invite to Forum members. For those wishing to join us, we would only ask that you become a member of NKLG (£5) in order to be covered by our insurance. This iconic show returns with a new format celebrating all things motoring. They will be putting on 3 live stunt shows per day with Paul Swift in the live arena. There will be classic car parades, record breakers, solar cars, live tests, mountain bike displays and over 30 National owners clubs will be displaying their pride and joys, including NKLG. Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townsend from Car SOS, Mike Brewer from Wheeler Dealers and Motoring expert Mike Rutherford are among the celebrities attending this fantastic show. This event is free to drivers, and for those choosing to attend all 4 days your passenger will also go free. You are welcome to attend however many or as few days as you wish, if less than 4 days you will receive a 10% discount code for you passenger. Press day is on Thursday (over 1000 press passes have been issued) so this is the day to really promote Lotus. For those wishing to stay in the area we have negotiated a good rate with The Holiday Inn, just 10 minutes walk from the show, this includes bed, breakfast and evening meal. As the event is being held within the airfield the security is extremely tight, therefore it will be completely safe to leave cars in place overnight if you are attending consecutive days. Please let us know asap if you wish to come along. Home - The British Motor Show Jon & Michelle Langridge Events Organisers NKLG
  10. My Esprit is running Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3, all round I couldn't find the right size fronts so opted for 245/40 R17 out front., I used this chart to calculate the next best fit, Tyre Size Calculator ( Hope it helps
  11. Thanks for that. Now, does anyone know where I can get a regular supply of extra time on the cheap?😕
  12. Thanks for the info, I will at some point strip the door and give everything a good clean and lube. Do you remember from what Vauxhall the actuator came from? Cheers Jon
  13. Hi Derek Thanks for the tips, decided I'm going to strip the door down clean and lube everything and see what happens, Cheers Jon
  14. Hi All, Has anyone had and knows how to sort this? When I lock my Esprit (96 V8) with the alarm remote the drivers door keeps unlocking, the passenger door stays locked and the alarm arms ok. If I keep hitting the arm button the door eventually stays locked, I can lock the door with the key ok. Cheers for any help Jon
  15. Hi Sam, Welcome to the forum, my take on the project is, if you feel up to it, nothing beats the feeling of driving a car, that you have spent time blood, sweat and tears restoring to an event and talking to even just one admiring person about the problems/fun you encountered during the restoration project. Take a chance, make a low opening offer, if you get it great, if it gets to much move it on but live safe in the knowledge that you have helped save another rare Lotus.
