  1. Ah, interesting. As long as it isn’t supposed to have wires to the glass then the one I have ordered should be fine. I doubt I’ll ever need the heated feature anyway as I tend to tuck the car up in the garage over the winter. Thank for the advice everyone - I’ll let you know, when I’ve fixed the mirror, if the eBay option is good.
  2. Thanks too Barry - I didn’t realise they were also used on TVRs. Mine isn’t heated though, and the eBay option is a lot cheaper! I might find it is cheaper for a reason, but worth a punt.
  3. You’d think I’d have found that wouldn’t you….. I looked on eBay earlier for Lotus mirror replacements and only found plastic film repair types. Should have gone back to basics and searched for the Citroen one! Thanks Ruud - TLF comes good again!
  4. Thanks Gary….eeek indeed. I think these particular ones are borrowed from the Citroen CX, but that is now pretty old hat too so no one has them either. I may try a ‘cut to order’ supplier, but I thought there might be a known/reliable source out there. If (when) I get it sorted I’ll post a recommendation…..
  5. Hello all, Has anyone found a source for replacement wing mirror glass for a 1990 Esprit SE - the L/H glass on mine has come loose and cracked and SJ say they can’t supply them anymore. It seems like it ought to be easy to get a mirror glass……but it isn’t!
  6. He did pretty well for a chap born on a grass verge at the side of a road.
  7. Spotted a Silver SE (?) in Cheriton this morning [15 July] near the traffic lights - too late to get the number plate, and too incompetent to be sure if it was an SE!
  8. Lovely looking car and a great picture. What colour is it?
  9. I think the gold Esprit came with two spare engines, but I'm not sure where you were supposed to store them as the glove box is only small.
  10. Thanks Filip - I did wonder, but couldn't see the rollover valve either (perhaps it is missing?). I'll try and post a photo next time I open it up again. It still seems to run OK at the moment and wasn't too smelly on a short run this morning.
  11. I replaced the balance pipe some years ago (with enormous help from Steve Smith) but the smell of fuel has returned so I had another look today and found two loose pieces of the old pipe behind the trim on the driver's side. There is a very short section of pipe (about 3 inches) attached to the second flange on the fuel filler pipe, but it seems to have been cut at an angle and matches the end of one of the loose pieces. What should that second pipe be attached too? I assume it should be connected to something - any guidance appreciated. I've looked at the LEW guide to the breather pipe replacement, but it isn't clear where that pipe goes.
  12. I've gone for replacement Protech adjustable dampers from SJ. Should arrive tomorrow. Thanks for the pointer!
  13. Thanks Vanya - I'll contact them. Any idea if Protech shocks are better or worse than OEM shocks ( and who made the OEM shocks for 1990 SE models)?
  14. My SE just failed its MOT because of leaking front shocks. They are Protech's (fitted I don't know when) so I need to get replacements but don't feel like shelling out £1,000 on Nitrons. Are Protech a reasonable option again?
  15. I really don't know what to say ;-)

  17. Now that is a shiny car. Gorgeous!
  18. Someone seems to have put the steering wheel on the wrong side ?
  19. Apart from the ones on my drive, I wanted the depth of field for these pics to show the backgrounds too but I'll do some more with shallow d.o.f for you next time ;-)
  20. Well you did ask..... ......and that's the lot for the moment! Good to see so many great looking Giugiaro's - makes me want get one of those too!
  21. No - it wasn't me either. Another one in Kent? I keep meaning to contact you to Steve - where does the time go?
  22. Managed to give her a polish and get some more photos today...... Hope that's not too many!
  23. Thanks Jonny and Jacques, it is fairly original - the colour is Pacific Blue and not that rare I think? I'll try and take a few more photos while the weather is so good and post them during the week.
  24. I need to take some more/better pics and upload to Photobucket, so this is it of mine at the moment: Hopefully that worked......
  25. Car looks great Cameron - I saw that model at the NEC Motor Show in 1988 and loved the interior as well as the pearlescent paint job. I just missed getting one 5 years ago when it was sold to Hong Kong, but I ended up with my SE instead!
