  1. My son went car shopping yesterday ๐Ÿ˜
  2. Garage extension done so now I can park the Esprit and connect it to a battery conditioner/trickle charger. This means in turn we can fit all the rest of our cars on the drive ๐Ÿ˜

    A place to meet?

    Iโ€™m there every Sunday from 9am till about lunchtime so just let me know when youโ€™re coming. As for the Excel in Sainsburyโ€™s car park if it was Ice Blue and in the corner furthest from the door then yes it was. I work there and it is now my daily driver ๐Ÿ˜

    Not sure we need to organise an official meet. They welcome any cars any day ๐Ÿ™‚

    A place to meet?

    Hi I live just outside Newbury in Berkshire and we have had a new establishment open which might be of interest and a place to meet with your cars. itโ€™s called Podium Place It not only serves freshly roasted coffee and food, but also houses a selection of performance cars which can be purchased if you have some spare cash. There has been other car clubs that have met at this cafe and there is usually something interesting in the car park. I am a regular at the weekend with both my Excel and Esprit and would love to meet up for a coffee and chat if you are in the area. Sue

    Hello again

    As promised a few pictures of my new car ๐Ÿ˜
  8. This made me happy today ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
  9. 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 Iโ€™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
  11. My technical man is sorting that out. I just drive it
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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!!!"
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Well that lets me off the hook and now I know what to buy John for Xmas
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. Pass on our best wishes x

    Hey PDF all those 'holes' you mention in Skyfall and you fail to mention that 1. In TSWLM an Esprit cannot change into a submarine. 2. In Moonraker even if you have steel teeth you don't have enough bite pressure to chew through a steel cable. 3. All women in James Bond movies want to sleep with him. 4. Bond turns Pussy Galore 'straight' 5. In Die Another Day you cannot flip a car right side up with an ejector seat. 6. How come Bond uses up all his gadgets before the end of the movie. 7. How clarevoyant must Q be to give Bond the right gadgets? 8. In Goldeneye how does his DB5 keep up with a Ferrari 355? 9. How come all the villains know who Bond is, tell him their evil plot and don't shoot him while he is asleep/having an interlude with a lady/on the loo etc? Now that's Bond dealt with don't get me started on Back To The Future, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Star Wars etc. Oh no sorry I got it wrong. These clearly state, along with Skyfall that they are works of fiction. Otherwise they would be called documentaries, be very boring and on BBC 2 or Channel 4!!
