    Hi Guys long time no post. Anyway during lovkdown the Forest Row S&C car club started up this amazing meet held at the Teal cafe in Hildenborough (just off the A21). It used to start in the morning at 8am but has now moved to the afternoon from 1.30pm -3pm (and onwards if the weather is nice) There is limited space so arrive prompt to avoid disappointment. The cafe is for our use from 2.30pm onwards so we can stay as long as we want. Anyway here's a link and a copy from. The Facebook page. Have you got a Classic or Supercar? Then why not come along to our meet at the Teal cafe and grab a Coffee, lunch or a all day Breakfast ! 1.30pm-3pm arrive early to get a good spot 👍🏻 London Road, TN15 0RS Sevenoaks
  2. Hi Guys you may remember this event which I used to advertise back in the day. Anyway after a long time away I'm pleased to say the event still takes place with the Forest Row S&C car club now running it. It's a free event to attend. The food issue will be sorted from June I'm told, but its only a 3 min walk into the high street for coffee and a bacon roll. Or bring your own picnic. From there facebook page The event formally known as "The Riverview Cafe meet. " Now the cafe is closed but the event is not. So why not come along to the newly Revamped Riverview Meet same location same day, Original time 10am-1pm (like the old days) You asked for it to say, so come and support it! Without you guys, there's no event. Look forward to seeing you all next month and some new guys too. Open to Classic, Retro, and Supercars. We'd love to see you all. Station Road, Forest Row, RH18 5, United Kingdom
  3. Some of you guys my know my Uncle has a se turbo which he's had from new in Grey. Anyway he found a few pics of his previous esprits and so I thought I'd post them up. It was on his private plate at the time but maybe you might have history stating the plate from years ago. Many thanks guys.
  4. Great launch, Well done lotus! I had to get my boy up to watch it as this was a real milestone I felt for lotus. Nice to spot a few of you guys up on the video wall! I think I'm going look at this seriously, can't wait to test drive one. Where do I sign!!
  5. Hi Guys and Gals, I'm back. It's been a long time since I've posted (life just got in the way and personal stuff) anyway last year a good friend of mine asked if he could use my Esprit for the beginning of his show on YouTube. So I said yes. Here's the video it starts straight after the recap titles so not long to wait before it starts. His series starts every episode with a different classic car so worth a watch if your board on YouTube one evening. Ps my Esprit has a SJ sports cars exhaust fitted so you can hear what it sounds like in the video if your looking for one!
  6. Saw today a S3 turbo esprit May of not been a turbo one, on trade plates with the split rims with gold centres (Think they are BBS ones) The colour was I think vulcan Grey (which I though they only did on the Stevens cars) or a dark green or maybe a dark grey. It was gone in a instance. He was really hammering it ( hope it wasn't a customer's car lol) Anyway sounded really nice and looked very tidy. Sorry no pic as was driving.
  7. Sounds good, the esprit could do with a big run now Geoff at esprit engineering as rebuilt the engine!
  8. Bibs its now saying out of stock again can you put one aside for me as i put my name down Originally? Cheers Matt
  9. Saw the gorgeous Red G Esprit Reg B... TED traveling on the M20 towards canterbury after junction 4 through the 50 mph speed limit roadworks. Looking lovey, nice to a G car on a sunny Tuesday afternoon.
  10. If your still having issues the best thing i can recommend is to check if you have the restrictor fitted inline of the pipe to the distributor if not you may be over pressuring the advance timing i think it should be 20º its only for increased driveablity untill warm, if you by pass the pipe from the TIV valve to the 4 way adaptor as pictured. Then it will only run at 10º BTDC should make the car drive less iffy. Good luck.

  17. Ok guys thanks for everything. Just thought I'd update you on things iv fixed the issue it was the over boost sensor, the actuator was set to over boost this in turn was tripping out the over boost sensor for a split second cutting the power to the spark so as it reignited the spark the extra fuel that was still In the car backfired out hence the popping and jerking in the car. All sorted also on my tinkering day found a vacuum leak in the Y piece from the vac pump onto the hard plastic hose. So replaced this and some of the oversized silicon pipes which were not sealing ok. Now help is required again. Only on cold running before the car is warm do I find that going up any kind of hill the car is popping and appears to have no power what so ever. It seems to jerk like kangaroo while trying to get up the hill. Any ideas or is this normal while it starts to warm up?
  18. Anyone take any pics on the Sunday at all? If so please post them here. Cheers Matt
  19. Having the same problem with mine. My green filter is broken and the bits are missing inside the green filter. Anyone got a spare one?
