    Hello again

    As the title suggests I have been a member of this forum before. Nearly 11 years ago my husband bought me an S3 Turbo Esprit and I loved it (when it was working). Needless to say for a 30+ year old car this was not always the case. So after 4 years and a brief ownership of a Lotus Excel I wanted a more reliable car. So to cut a long story short after 7 years of owning a BMW 840 and 4 years of owning a Porsche 944s I am returning to my first super car love. So at the end of the month (lots going on) I will hopefully be in possession of another S3 Turbo Esprit, and because I’m married to a lovely man and we never do things by halves, I will also have a Lotus Excel. Its good to be back Sue

    Sorry to hear of your loss x
  3. Merry Christmas xxxxx
  4. My technical man is sorting that out. I just drive it
  5. Thanks guys. Like sparky I only like the 840 & 850. It's the shape that does it for me and the steptronic gearbox is fun
  6. Well there is a BMW 840 ci 96 sitting on my drive. Completely different driving experience but I think I will have fun. For the technical specs pleas talk to my live in mechanic.
  7. Andy I just have impeccable taste Gunter I'm sure John would be grateful for any help so thanks for the offer. I know that it will be heavy and a completely different driving experience but I'm 'sowing my wild oats' car wise and thanks to John I can drive different cars with the security of having a live in mechanic.
  8. Well went to a garage to see a car. Unfortunately couldn't get a test drive and it wasn't the exact model I want. The car I went to see is a BMW 840. I await your opinions and the inevitable German leg pulling so I will start, "Fur you Tommy Atkins zee var ist over!!!"
  9. Yes it was sad. I had so much fun driving her and meeting such genuine enthusiasts and great people from the forum. However being a woman it's now time to shop!!! Rest assured I will still be 'that woman who drives a blokes car', just a different make for a while (one with pas would be nice ) However Lotus will always hold a special place in my heart and I'm sure I will not be able to stay away for long.
  10. Yes I am here lurking amongst the testosterone fuelled posts Not sure about hot hatches they are driven mostly by chavs here. I have a car in mind and hope to test drive it this weekend.
  11. Well that lets me off the hook and now I know what to buy John for Xmas
  12. As the title suggests I would like to sup at the collective and awesome fountain of knowledge that resides in this forum to help me decide what car next. My budget alas cannot stretch to another Lotus at the moment, besides I have scratched that 'itch'. I would like a car that is unusual, has more than 2 seats and has a boot. Unfortunately I have been spoilt by the power and performance of the Esprit and would like something comparable. Fickle I know but I am a female of the species. Sue
  13. Well she went this morning on a trailer to Wales. They love the car, especially the colour, and say they will keep her under cover till the spring and use her as a fair weather car.
  14. Pop quiz - what do I do? On the one side a chap from Australia is interested, father had an Esprit, want to use it as a daily runner. On the other side a chap who seems to have no clue about Esprits, is buying it for someone else.
