    My old car which I specced from new. Very much missed 😢 Fantastic GT430 for someone.
  7. I have spoken to CS a few times and they are as helpful as they can be. I double checked my spec today just in case! All seemed fine, no nearer knowing actual del date but will be July fingers crossed! (as opposed to the original June del) I wanted to talk to the Lotus finance team to discuss the PCP's etc they are offering and some general but important questions. Especially with the supposed delivery getting much nearer. CS have no phone number for Lotus Financial Services, anyone have a contact number please? They gave me an email address to use but despite me emailing the financial bods no reply yet.
  8. Here is the link now
  9. Was going to put this plate on TLF for sale which I will do this week. In the meantime its available on retention in my name if of interest to anyone. Price £399.00 which is cost.
  10. I was at the television centre last couple of days, they were setting up the TG display, cameras etc. They are filming the new series now, the Emira wasn't there when I was. Will pop down tomorrow see what the Emira is i.e., colour etc. @beady Television Centre is nearly opposite White City tube stn on Wood Lane W10 also opposite Westfield shopping centre. If you go to the tv centre itself you can't miss the Top Gear staging as out in the open in the Helos roundel area.
  11. Oh dear thats sad news. I met her once, lovely lady. RIP

  13. Thanks Chris will do, haven't been to one in ages so will in the New Year
  14. Hi Paul yes was me. Was nice to see an Esprit out in the wild so I presumed you were going to the TLF one. Don't think ever happened to me seeing an Esprit out and about and not at a show etc Your car looked great be good to catch up sometime.

  18. Quick report. Took a trip to Hethel yesterday for the roadshow, my favourite place in the world! Interestingly of the six cars in the car park for the event there were 4 P cars. Hopefully they'll come aboard! Tremendous start to the building changes especially the new building in front of the original offices, excellently designed and done. The Emira looked lovely there, great to see as per Bibs post the colours on the larger speed forms. Have to say the Dark Verdant look much better than the small disc. Took the speed forms outside in the sun, still no nearer to deciding my colours yet though! I've seen the car couple of times before (Goodwood and B&C) and still managed to spot things I had missed, small design details that add to the overall package. The front shaping of the bonnet when it reaches the windscreen being one and the lack of rubber weatherproof strips on the rear quarter windows being another, The weather proof strips are behind the body so not seen. Nice. Really good speeches by both Graeme and Scott, very informative and accomplished must say. The describing of the car including what we cannot see from the outside of it was great. Had no idea there is so much aero under the skin and around the intakes and louvres, nice to see the passion they both have for the car and Lotus. Lots of others on hand to chat to as well. Jaimie, Callum, Nick and others, all very helpful. Looking forward to next year and Emira delivery.
  19. Looking forward to seeing what the auction result is later today. Hopefully will show the S1 prices are holding up well. Will post when I see the result
  20. With this T49's age of over 20 years and low mileage plus scarce availability the car could easily do 1000 miles per year in the foreseeable future and still be very low mileage. The green S1 looks great however this T49 is more rare in it special edition guise. There will always be cars locked away with next to no mileage but thats no fun. As we all know very few cars ever made as good to drive as an S1 Elise! I agree @jepif you want a high milage one get a cheaper one and have the fun, this one is more of a collectors/low milage one which is in perfect condition and wants for nearly nothing.
  21. Hi All Just a heads up about this very low 6,700 mile Elise S1 Type 49 for sale if anyone is interested. Auction ends next middle next week. Thanks Bibs for approving the post.
  22. I asked someone from the factory at the B&C tour last week re colours who suggested looking at some of the gamers who have good representations of the LE colours. I found this shot, no idea how accurate they are or if anymore on the inter web anywhere. The magma red looks very fire red to me and we know they are very close colours. Hethel yellow looks close too. I'm not a gamer etc so perhaps there are others out there. Sorry if this has been mentioned/posted before
  23. Excellent video well done all. Makes want to get my JPS out a go for a drive!

    Fantastic race today! No spoilers tho...
  25. I am not sure of the exact ref number but I used Suzuki Mars Gold Z2V F8518 by Dupont and looked same as OEM. There are a few different shades i.e 7ZL instead of Z2V I believe However best test yourself first. Or get the actual alloys you have paint matched
