  1. No one drink coffee in your house; I assume you dont like your M in L
  2. Rich, We still have our Esprit; presently also own an Elise SC and a Cup 260 Previously we have had a 2002 111S 160 (Rover engine 156bhp), then a 2004 111R (Toyota engine 189bhp) trick second cam at 6K although some have had ecu upgrade lowering second cam switch to 5K also Toyota engine cars much cheaper on servicing, think the road tax is pretty good as the CO emmissions are pretty good The later S upto a year ago or so the 111S Toyota was a 1.6ltr about 135bhp i think these are now 1.8ltr To be honest if you want an everyday car and occasional track fun go for the 111R anything less in the power stakes you will feel cheated (being an ex Esprit driver) you should be able to get a good 111R for your £15K; your best bet is going to a dealer who has a few different bhp models in and have a drive in each If you want more track days than everyday userbility then an Exige S2 (190 early cars then 220/240 upto 260 (257bhp) awesome fun both on the track and on the road; if split is roughly 50/50 then an Elise SC (218bhp) but you may need a bit more money but believe me well worth stretching the bank!!

  3. Yep they look like the ones seen in photo's of the upcoming GTE road car
  4. Bugger, that was close thought I'd be visiting the local sex shop for some under counter magazines to scan a picture or two; thankfully Suddabym has explained the "use of the toilet" for own pleasures???
  5. Yep thought he was poorly treated at Chelsea (No3 London club!!) yes I know they won more trophies than the two LC above them last season! How do the Tottenham (being one of Londons top two clubs) fans on here feel to AVB
  6. Mark B what are you saying?? or am i thinking like a juvenile?
  7. Hopefully the man at the helm will inform us what he intends for Lotus future during Goodwood think he will have been in charge 2 weeks then; I seriously don't think he was not primed on what could and did happen with his promotion etc hopefully he has bought into what the paymasters have mapped for the future of Lotus cars I am also keen to hear if he wants to retain the services of the people DB brought into GL and indeed are they willing to stay at least in the short term i.e. Esprit into production and Elise replacement Oh so many questions
  8. Ramjet; just in case your not taking the p*ss Spurs or lillywhites is the nickname for Tottenham Hotspur
  9. as you say David;" but someone else in authority should have acted sooner." Anything from the bunker to report??
  10. 15mins into the second half of last night's game and my money was on HR being in charge of England before end of weekend Fair result in end?
  11. Can't all be bad DB has managed to keep this thread with 23pages and counting! When's Goodwood so we can start another "hot" topic oops wont the Lotus cars being shown be DB's cars?? Good job the "team" at Hethal are still busy producing our cars!
  12. Don't think so ego not big enough IMO JM and plenty of money, nothing else will do;, ok DB and plenty of money oh no Lotus tried that!!
  13. I don't mind admitting i was a (big) fan of DB; apart from whatever the new owners got rid of DB for & the swizz beatz connection, and i suppose untill the truth (from both sides) comes out helicopters/houses etc or whatever else it was; DB put Lotus back on the world stage, not probably the right way but effective all the same
  14. oucchhhhh well written; ?? worth the read; wish i hadent bovered!
  15. I've heard THFC chairman wants to interview JM and DB Nothing surprises me in football its biased to a team who play in red (yes from manchester not Italy)
  16. DB or JM (the chosen one) they both know how to spend that will be a difficult decision for Daniel Levy (Tottenham chairman) Sudders can you ask DB if he is related to Jose, they both share many traits
  17. Is Danny still talking to the team he brought in; officially or unofficially Large rented property prices in Leeds area on the up?
  18. Calling the bunker, calling the bunker
  19. OOOpppps thought i'd gone to the wrong thread had to check the headline a couple of times!!1 Thought this was about DB being suspended or sacked not V8 engines either Lotus ones or someone elses sorry to be a tw*t but cant we start another thread??
  20. now i've managed to stop laughing and gone back and looked at the photo's again for heavens sake its got a "Turbo" bumper;
  21. Paul not being a gardender or green fingered person who is only able to use the mower (well sort of) what exactly are we supposed to be looking at? the brown thing the flower/weed with the petal or the green thing?? now where did i put this weeks gardening review? I know i should have took more notice at school
  22. Kimbers, is it not obvious why DB left Ferrari and Red Bull? Red Bull dont manufacture a sports car and Ferrari only build really expensive red things that look sh1t IMHO; where as Lotus ..............
  23. In that case can you please send the Evora to Nott's whilst we wait on more info of the GTE road car
  24. Yes I also agree Mark, a big shame if it was to do with the huge investment; surely there were otherways of dealing with DB I really do hope that the new guy keeps to bringing the new Esprit out and we dont go for another new review etc etc Hope this is the end of the cull and all the big names who DB has brought in can & will stay Good luck Mr Aslam
