  1. the trousers arrived safely and are really brilliant. Thank you for that. Annoying are the custom formalities and fees now... but nothing you can manage.
  2. it is a design of the Master himself and lead to some championships in Formular 1. Could be worse... Nevertheless... it is a unpleasant job, no doubt about it. But you feel the difference in your but when driving it in comparison to other layouts. So not only a pita job, there is also a benefit for it.
  3. do we know, when will the new collection of clothes make it to the shops?
  4. what dimensions are the trousers like in large, please?

    sounds like you had some weird experiences first hand?
  6. 350gbp sounds reasonable to me. You own the most expensive 4zylinder of its time with true sportscar values. With the second most important thing beside the engine you should show it some love when it comes to the suspension which is responsible for the world known Lotus handling.
  7. these are the first pictures of a fed version I ever remember where the fed bumper doesn't look misplaced. Not as good maybe like the European version but nevertheless good. Did you manage the upholstery yourself ? It looks absolutely top notch. Again one of the best work I have ever seen. Oh and did the car already come with the rear seat belt in place? Overall very good looking pictures of a gorgeous car.
  8. Nice find of a true and honest review. By the way... to be honest I am waiting now several years of a similar nice picture set of your wedges in the same way as your Esprit @89esprit will it ever appear?

    No offence intended. If you like it => bingo concerning the stock features... i mean the stock switches have 3 conditions: 1 all out 2 switch background illuminated with lights on 3 switch complete illuminated when engaged point 2 is missing right?

    I appreciate the work which is done with the buttons, but imho they don't fit to the design language of the car. Iirc the illumination is also not like the stock ones with missing illuminated signs when lights are on?
  11. Personally I don’t like these Frankenstein conversions but I understand that the Excel is easier to maintain. i also think the OZ will not suit the appearance but it is your car then... iirc the track is different to the earlier cars and affect the handling a bit
  12. Steve, which version from whom did you install in the end? Do you have any pictures from the install ? Are you satisfied with it after all?
  13. I try to collect all data from the Rivieras and yours is well known here with the former owner @matk i couldn’t get the details as promised. Will do them tomorrow. Until then some teasers :
  14. So chassi number 1130 (last 4 digits of the VIN)? curious, I never noticed the loss of the deflector on that car before. attached you will find 2 pictures of another Riviera, not mine. Will do details and measurements later the day.
  15. It is more coloured than in the picture and really effective. I will have a look for some details tomorrow. Which particular Riviera did you caught ? Is it one from the Netherlands?
  16. I would be interested too. The Esprit has discs, Jaguar had a setup and of course the spider chassi. I am fortunate until now that the drums still work. But after that, I would like to alter the setup.
  17. Thomas: it depends which interior you have (half leather/leather) ? which Riviera do you have please?
  18. The CoP would be interesting for a future buyer as well. You should post it also. It is a nice document how rare they are, even more on your side of the pont
  19. Is the depth of the details from the production run numbers still the same kike before ? In the 1 picture of the paper with the car details und “Other mentions” is only a general figure. The old ones told also about how many were produced with the same colour, interior, LHD, autobox etc.
  20. Oh, sorry. Thought there was the cover for the roof as well. My mistake. Mines is missing as well. So with this reg it is the only one in America. Nice 👍 thank you for the additional pictures. You talked about the archives from Lotus. Do you have the Certificate from Lotus as well? Would you mind posting it as well?
  21. This is absolutely unique. I guess, it will be the only Riviera in the US and most likely on your side of the pont. which Vin does it have? Do you have a picture of the VIN plate? Is it a former WNG registration plate? not sure about the seats and steering wheel. Are the stock ones with the car? And the last question: could you please measure the canvas for the targa roof and post some detail pictures of it ? Thank you
  22. I was fortunate to had both at one time and both have their charme. I love the MY89 with its wheels, arches, spats and Citroen mirrors as well as the S2 Eclat with the lighter glass sections, more and better view and the reliable gearbox too. I think the best way is, to own each of them. @Tim Jones you’re must be the best Eclat in existence. Fabulous. Where did you get your interior done? Looks spotless. Real stunning
