  1. Thought it was just me. It is a shocker.
  2. I thought about that as well, but I am pretty sure that the exhaust blew toward the spoiler in much the same direction as the airflow over the car. Not at 90 degrees like this. Ahh, what would I know? I’m not an aerodynamicasisterer.
  3. And here's me thinking that the exhaust flow would just upset the airstream coming across the top of the car which you really want to be as laminar as possible don't you? And then I could just see some wombat at the shops putting their bags on your recently parked car's tailgate and promptly starting a fire or melting crap onto your car. 'Cos you know they can do that while they are opening their boot don't you? I thought they banned Lakeside exhaust pipes, which used to be all the rage on Panel Vans when I was a youngster, because passers by could get burnt by the exhaust blowing on them as they walked along the footpath? Well that's what happened here in Oz.
  4. Welcome to TLF romeo-clive. I thought ET was a movie from years ago? Whereabouts are you in the world?
  5. Well, Victoria, Australia is getting in the pooh. Someone tested positive and then went to a family gathering anyway and 13 out of the 16 are now positive. They have also contacted other people. 10 postcodes, those affected, have all been closed down from midnight tomorrow. The Victorian government is now also stopping all planes into Victoria for the next two weeks. As of next week, Victoria will be closing our borders to every other state and they may remain closed for the next 6 months. No doubt, the naysayers will all come out again saying it is all government control. Tell my daughter who is testing people for 8 hours a day and are still getting people that think it is all a big joke. One guy the other day stopped laughing after my daughter told him that since he has now blatantly broken the law (he went to a mate's barbecue when he knew full well that he should not have) and she had all his details and was now going to report him to the Health Dept., he went and complained loudly to the doctor that runs the clinic and got the same story from the doctor. He is quite likely now going to get a $1,650 fine. Expensive joke.
  6. Welcome to TLF Sam. I wish I could, but I can only give you my best for whatever you decide. Now wasn’t that easy?

    Hi everyone!

    Welcome to TLF Mike. The only place you would find more S1's together than that would be at the factory I reckon. Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help.
  10. Welcome to TLF Nik. I can't give you any advice on what Lotus to get as your first, as I have only ever owned my S4. Most reliable car I have owned. And the only other Loti that I have been in was Bibs Elise (so a +ve vote for them there) and John Walsh's Esprit in Scotland. Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help.
  11. Welcome to TLF Dan. That looks beautiful. Won't be able to get the smile off your face for ages. Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help.
  12. Welcome to TLF Neil. A guy in Australia that I talk to a lot about my Esprit recommended an Excel to me if I wanted to stay with a Lotus after I sell my Esprit. Alas, not to be. Hope everything goes really well with your project. Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help.
  13. Welcome to TLF Mark. I take it that Silver over Red are the original colousr? Going to leave it as is or change it? Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help.

  16. Was the number really 500,000? That’s what reported here.
  17. So Victoria, where I live, has had 77 new cases in a week since relaxing restrictions. So they tightened things up again as you would expect to stop it. But the best part? The stupid, idiotic, brain dead, pathetic halfwits that call themselves humans have panic bought the shops empty again. The world contains a lot of morons.
  18. Grandson’s test came back -ve. Good news.
  19. My grandson in Sydney has been tested today for Covid-19. Has been sick for a few days so his mum took him to be tested. Waiting to hear now.
  20. @Barrykearley there is a lot of info on here as well. Has to do with the driven and the non-driven sides of the teeth on the crownwheel.
  21. Or the PM of Italy I think it was? If it was the governments lying to everyone about the virus, he did a great job of looking upset for the cameras. It's real. To think anything else is quite presumptuous.
  22. Ok. Mine is a '94 S4, but I had issues with my adjustment. I spent some time mucking around with it and eventually got is it as close as I could to what the manual said. I must admit it is like night & day to shift now. The adjustment on mine was at the 'box end and was to do with a linkage which anchors to the chassis. I was probably only out about 1.5mm in length, but that was enough to make fifth a pain. Follow the manual and ask for help on here and eventually you will get it.

    I know. I did that as well. Just the long shot looks bow down in the water. Might just be the angle?

    I have looked at the photo a couple of times. If I blow it up, the waterline is level, but something about it looks like the ship is loaded incorrectly. Weird.
  25. I’m still looking at your post and wondering if the typo is a ’Trump Street Triple’ or a ‘Triumph Street Triple’?
