  4. 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.

  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Excellent video well done all. Makes want to get my JPS out a go for a drive!

    Fantastic race today! No spoilers tho...
  15. 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
  16. Passed my driving test in a Dolly Sprint, learnt on it as well. Was my mothers. Great car.
  17. I last year on my JPS renewed the optic holder No 6 from SJ and the useless bulb with a brighter LED which helped. Also replaced the fibre strands, check the existing holders (No 30) were in place and all plugged in. Still not that bright. What is the list of the actual switches which take the optic feed please?

    Bit of help reading the Sunday papers! 🙆‍♂️
  20. @peteYes Pete the JPS is the Esprit! All nice and comfy in my garage under its indoor cover
  21. That'll be me too at present - Aston 2020 Vantage AMR and my JPS and type 49 Elise S1 Vantage is fantastic must say.
  22. Finished my 3 year restoration recently also happy to help with any questions. Yes pics please
  23. Hi Barrie, yes it is from the S3 though it was genuine. Yep got car with me now, few teething problems re smooth running but taking it to Sir Sparky tomo to take a look. Yes we'll arrange to meet up, maybe Ace when it reopens. I'll check when it is. Hi George, I have been checking but nothing yet so hopefully will find one soon. I know SJ have the canvas roll but not sure if I need that, def need wheel changing kit tho. Thanks for the reference. Yes found the correct steering wheel sometime ago, from Australia. Had a boss that fitted it already. Like all of us looking forward to seeing you complete your S2! How you getting on with it?
  24. Thanks Paul I'll keep looking, I do have an S3 toolkit in a plastic tray/box not sure if was OEM though or just what someone had placed in the my old S3. Its in the JPS for now. I'll just have to ride around with the S2 worksop manual! Little large for the glovebox tho 😬
  25. Hi. Having just picked up my S2 after its long resto, I only recently realised it is missing the jack and tools plus no owners handbook. If anyone knows of any availability of any of above be great to get. Oh and the OEM hitachi digital one stereo as well, been looking a looong time for one of those. Thanks
