  1. 113. Going shopping, forgetting you've taken the Esprit and buying something bulky. 114. Nice ferrari mate..........grrrrrrrr!!!! 115. People who sit on your bonnet Does 109 not sound like the Esprit???? 109. Plastic toys that break after 5 mintues of opening.
  2. And this one is pretty good too Who needs crash bobbins when your bike just stays on two wheels
  3. Ok not been back in here for a while ever since I got rid of the S4. A big hello back to all those who knew me for the 5 years I was on here Bibs, Kimbers, Jonathan Anyway I came accross this and had to share it. Anyhow still without Lotus not been tempted back yet and still enjoying the SRT8 Jeep, and gone back to two wheels (Yamaha R1). So anyone seen the old girl on here then??? Waynef
  4. Check your rear wheel bolts are tight as if loose you'll get a bang bang noise through the car Waynef
  5. Erm .....................its not the corvette Clicky A proper family car, managed to get 23mpg out of her the other day Waynef
  6. Guy (Especially you Bibs and Cliff oh and of course Kimbers) it has been great meeting you all and meeting up at various meets. After five years of ownership, much expense and more smiles than ever I am no longer an Esprit Owner. I just wanted to say what a great forum this has been and without it running an Esprit would be a nightmare. I'll still be in and out on here and will no doubtedly still attend a few meets (Not in an Esprit of course). I know this is the introductions Forum but there is no Good bye forum so to all of those who I have met 'Jonathan, Roger' i'll still be about on here. And Finally Bibs, fantastic forum Thanks and a Big Goodbye and as Arnie would say "I'll be back". Waynef
  7. Interesting that you decided to re'use the original metal plates. I binned mine and replaced them with the plastic surround version which has four long plastic adjusters. The base plate I re manufactured from aluminium and the drilled the surrounds to fit. I binned the originals due to the fact they're made of mild steel and corrode really badly. At least you got them to fit in the end though And they look good. I want to fit an HID and washer system to mine next.
  8. I agree totally Mark, Reading is the last place but I was visiting one of my clients to give IT training in the morning trust me i'd have been off down the coast if it were my choice
  9. Bibs I must be getting old then hehe I prefer my creature comforts in the wet and the higher up driving position of the company barge lol. Esprit would be an all weather car and and every day car but I reckon i'm probably one of the few to have put on over 50,000 miles in five years. It would be good to see or hear if others have.
  10. IT's definately shiny as not really driven it much this year so nothing more to do than polish her. The Only reason i took her to Reading that day was because it was a very hot day. I had the roof out if it was me
  11. I used to use mine a s a daily having put almost 50,000 on the clock since owning. This year to date i've covered less than 500 miles, it pains me to see her not used. I do try and take her out as much as possible but the weather this year (i know crap excuse) has been diabolical) However since being parked up she has had new red carpet set installed, new speakers, centre console and leather all retreated like new, looks amazing now. She's also had New rear disks, new sports mini silencer, full C service, lots of hoses replaced, lots of things tightened must'nt forget that. And is about to have the wheels dark chrome finished. So maybe not using her as much means i get to do the thing normally i could'nt. This week I will be using her as a daily driver as my Renault key card stopped working yesterday when i went through a body scanner at Regus???? WTF!!! Renault have said its 10 days to get keycard ordered from france then ontop of the £135 for the card another £50 to have it matched...... Oh well at least i get to drive the Esprit lets hope the weather improves
  12. I was heading towards railway station at some point got lost due to traffic road works on main roundabout lol i have the V8 monoblocks but still have midmounted spoiler. number plate ends *** 5lob Waynef
  13. Was coming out of Reading in the S4 on Friday at about that time.
  14. Would i be right in saying (ignore the rear seat space if not fitted) the Esprits boot is bigger than the Evora's. I'm 6'1 and can squeeze in the boot a lot easier than the pic of that guy in that link. Normal practice to get in the boot of the S4 when working on her. I can fit the childrens buggy in the boot, along with carry cot, overnight bag and a few other bits. Will be taking my one year old to Breakfast club at Goodwood this Sunday so will have the buggy onboard
  15. Maybe the increase is to make up for the Icelandic c$*k up that so many Councils invested their precious savings with and now we're paying it back......
