  1. Hello again NMEG - good to see that excursions are still going on. Been off the Forum for about 6 months due to IT problems, and Esprit been off the road due to oil and water leaks awaiting fixing. Both problems now fully resolved and looking forward to 'flying again'. Hope to meet up with you soon. David.
  2. Hi Bibs. Been off the Forum for 6 months due to IT and car problems - now fully resolved. Tried to send a PM but getting message back that "The member cannot receive any new messages" Suggestions on how I send it out gratefully received. Regards, David.
  3. Sounds good but I'm still grounded with an oil leak, and on the look-out for some new pipes so can't join this one (plus I foolishly promised to redecorate some rooms before Christmas!)
  4. I liked to use the 'View New Content' as a bookmark to get straight to the new Esprit stuff, but it seems to be searching across all the Forums now no matter what screen I click it from. Is this an option we have lost from the new integrated Forum approach, which I like in most other respects?
  5. My oil and water pipes are looking dodgy now so I want to replace. Welcome update from people on potential sources of these and prices. I think PNM may be doing them now - anyone have any experience and price for these? Have Pipelines prepared a kit, and what do people recommend between alloy and stainless unions? Do Lotus supply OEM or will they also rust through in another 10 years?
  6. I'm sure its been on AutoTrader for a lot longer than 3 months - at least they've reduced the price. There's a similar one up for sale in Wigan which I think must have been there for about a year -
  7. Rats - visiting CT on business and missing this by only a week. Looking forward to a bit of sun though. Lotuses are rather a rare site in SA - aaw a lovely red G Turbo in Centurion last year. Whereabouts are you based, Richard?
  8. Sorry I missed this. Computer has been down for over a month and only just repaired so it fell off the radar. Looking forward to the next one.
  9. All depends on your budget. Sevens seem to go for
  10. Can certainly recommend Simon at Windy Ridge - 01477 532285. When I first took my Excel there for a tune up about 12 years ago - he asked did it have a stutter at about 3000 revs? - yes - he knew exactly how to rejet the carbs and has been keeping it in tip-top condition ever since. Excellent value too. He has 3 Lotuses himself including an S2 Esprit and has always done an excellent honest job for me on both the Excel and Esprit. I've continued to get the Esprit serviced at CN to keep up the FDSH, no complaints, but any interim work gets done by Simon.
  11. Squeeze Munter into goal - nothing will get past her! I think some of the others will be picking up a lot of red cards though.
  12. Unfortunately I'm on holiday too. Watch out for the lunatic bikers and speed cameras.
