Newbie (1/14)



  1. Too early to say about 360 but it was just for a change and yes it was hard walking away from the Esprit
  2. Dave, I dont think they have sold it yet. Yes the new Esprit looks very exciting and boy its been a long wait! I would take one after a year or two once the depreciation has already kicked in.
  3. Thanks Dave. I got a f360 but there will always be a special place in my heart and memories for the Esprit as I had a picture of one on my wall since I was a student and dreamed of owning one someday....... GT3 was a great light car and was a nice late 4 cylinder car.
  4. Well after 10 years and 4 Esprits 93 se high wing 98 Gt3 2001 v8 gt 2002 V8 I have now retired from Esprits. My last one was a lovely red anniversary model and is now for sale at Top Gear Cars in Scotland. Its not there on sale or return by the way as I sold it outright and I have no financial interest in the sale of the car - I just hope it goes to a good home where it is appreciated as I have always appreciated this great British Icon.
  5. BRG Esprit A34 Wilmslow 7 March. You were going around the roundabout near Wilsmlow heading south while I was in red V8 heading north.
  6. Hi Robert yes my car visits King Street quite a lot! I will try and make Feb meet Holmes Chapel. Just spotted this as I dont visit the forum very often so sorry for delay replying.
  7. Buy the newest one you can get and check the engine number with the factory so that you get one with an engine withy the new cyclinder liner sealent post 2001? I think else you may get a huge bill sooner or later if liners have not already been repaired.
  8. GTs are much quicker than SEs 0-60 4.1 0-100 9.5 per Autocar whereas SE are about 0-60 4.5 0-100 10.5 I have owned both and teh GT does feel quicker.
  9. That car is always there! Is it Tony Whitters old one?
  10. Whte Esprit SE? 1990 ish behind me in my red V8 Sunday on M56 I thought you were joining us at Club Lotus? and I think you are my ex garage lock up neighbour Steve?
  11. Good effort Robert. Hopefully we can get a few more to meet up soon.
  12. Guys didnt get a PM but just checked this thread to see the details. At that time on a Sunday morning I will def be in bed with prob too much alcohol in my blood to drive and Wales is a but far for me for a North West meet. Well done for organising something and I may get to see you guys around lunch time at the Club Lotus meet but the Grand Prix might keep me indoors. Have fun and drive safely!
  13. Nice 09 Evora silver outside M20 bar IN Didsbury Manchester Saturday night 9pm.
  14. Dave yep I have a "loud" no silencers V8 which is often in Manchester (King Strett) saturday mornings! I think I have spotted you a year or so ago as well on A34 by Parswood. Come along on 27th September Cheers Richard
