  1. google :onitsuka tiger not driving shoes as such but really thin soles so really good and look way cooler than puma. The Mexico ones are great search on facebook as they have regular sales - tend to be about £70-80 but £50-60 in sales.
  2. Help I need to extend the cable length of my Ctek charge - the end section of the cable that attaches to the battery is only about 40cm long then it has a plug connector to connect to the charger (as attached pic) so I need to cut this cable and extend it to about 1.5-2m long - any guidance on what size / cable rating i need to use? Also if I am adding a pair of 55w spotlights - same question - what cable size? (not on the Lotus) Any help much appreciated . that Can anyone advise what size / rating cable i should use.
  3. sadly just a dirty TD5....I did consider a V8 but the fuel consumption is pretty scarey
  4. as far away from a Lotus as you can get....
  5. having had a launch edition manual 276hp, an S IPS 350hp and now a 400 manual i agree 100% on all the above. 400 a noticeable step up on speed but a firmer ride...
  6. It was in a non lotus / non specilaist sports car dealer (eg probably came via an auction) so the car looked at little 'out of place' in that dealer at the time (in april 19) I recall when i called them they said they 'were not aware' of any damage but on close inspection they advised me it looked like it had evidence of damage / paintwork repairs to rear drivers quarter. easiest solution would be to have it properly inspected by a main dealer - £250 for peace of mind.
  7. i enquired about that one a year ago - the dealer selling it told me it has evidence of being in a rear end accident, hence missing engine cover
  8. Our old 2008 mini has an advisory on the MOT for corrosion in the subframe. we have had it since new and it now has 90k, but still drives well. At that age on autotrader they seem to start at £2k, but i imagine this would be much less with an advisory. WBAC offer £1k at present (mot is until next March so plenty of time as they will take it with min 3 months mot i understand) Does anyone have any idea of time needed to change to subframe? (or idea of approx labour cost). I suspect by the time the subframe is out, the costs could increase quickly as it will be "sensib
  9. this was a couple of years ago when just built. It is a little more cluttered now.
  10. Been fancying a VW bay window camper for a a while now...i suspect the romance might be short lived if i get round to buying one..might have to hire one for a weekend as a trial (kids a re 8 and 9 so don't have much longer left for it to be of interest to them).

    Re-roofed the garden shed, hired a rotovator and laid down a load of grass seed, cleared out the shed and garage, filled some cracks around the house and finally put this up on the wall, a year or so after Mrs B bought it....
  12. tried to hire a large rotavator to get out in the garden the other day but they wont deliver it...gutted!
  13. wow this was meant as a tongue in cheek post really. I have a saying, that if you have to ask a question then you already know the answer, but i was interested in peoples take on it I have been at home since starting to work from home last Monday and have only nipped out a couple of time locally to buy provisions (and didnt even take the lotus then). Lets hope this thing passes quicker than many of us fear so we can all get out again
  14. call the warranty company, put them on speakerphone and record the conversation on another device - and dont delay. if they can find a way to sneak out of paying they will try....been there (and won!)!
