  4. When I was at the Donington on Sunday I was speaking to some fellow Azure GT3 owners. I didnt catch their names - Are they on this forum? I was the 99 GT3 owner that was on the end of the row in the ront car park Regards Mick 99 GT3
  5. Thanks I thought as much. Dont get me wrong I do get the car serviced regularly. Its that I dont do the miles. Its due a B but I'll get a C service done for peace of mind etc
  6. Hi all, I know that the service intervals are every 6000 miles and a C service is every 36000 miles. Is there a time limit on when a C sevice should be carried out. Im thinking that belts may loose their flexibility over time and start to crack etc. Any thoughts? Regards Mick 1999 GT3

  8. And then, the fight started My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, 'What's on TV?' I said, 'Dust.' And then the fight started... ****************************************** My wife and I are watching "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" while we were in bed. I turned to her and said, "Do you want to have sex?" "No," she answered. I then said, "Is that your final answer?" She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, "Yes." So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend." And then the fight started.... ****************************************** Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day. I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible." My loving wife of 10 years replied, "Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?" And that's how the fight started... ****************************************** I rear-ended a car this morning. So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car.. You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed and little things just seem funny? Yeah, well I couldn't believe it.... He was a DWARF!!! He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted, "I AM NOT HAPPY!!!" So, I looked down at him and said, "Well, then which one are you?" And then the fight started..... ***************************************** My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds.' I bought her a scale. And then the fight started... ****************************************** When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive... so, I took her to a gas station. And then the fight started... ****************************************** After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's license to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later. The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'. So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair. She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me' and she processed my Social Security application When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office. She said, 'You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability, too.' And then the fight started... ****************************************** My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table. My wife asked, 'Do you know her?' 'Yes,' I sighed, 'She's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since.' 'My God!' says my wife, 'who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?' And then the fight started... ****************************************** I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first. "I'll have the strip steak, medium rare, please." He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?"" Nah, she can order for herself." And then the fight started... ****************************************** A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror. She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, 'I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment..' The husband replies, 'Your eyesight's damn near perfect.' And then the fight started.....
  9. It wasnt mine (thank god). There's a garage in Whitley Bay ( ) with an S4s in for engine repair. I spoke to the owner of the garage (at the NEEG meet) and he said he was repairing one that had valve damage and was fitting a new fuel tank. The owner of the car lives in Chester-le-Street I think. I cant remember what colour it was though. Mick 99 GT3 (blue)
  10. Ive got a Sky HD box with a 1080p/i Panasonic plasma tele and the quality is superb. The SKY HD box is excellent. (and you can record to the hard disk - which I dont think is available yet on freestat) I havent subscribed to the SKY HD service yet and I only get the free stations - BBC, Channel 4 but I do recommend HD.

  16. Evening all, BBC4 is showing a documentary on Graham Hill tonight at 9.00pm Mick 99 GT3
  17. Thanks all, Great sound - thanks Jonathan - my neighbours are going to love me...... Mick 99 GT3 Jonathan have you a CAT bypass pipe fitted? Mick 99 GT3
  18. Just a few questions regarding the V8 valance (A082B5327J) Im toying with the idea of fitting a twin exit Larini exhaust and I dont want to modify my existing valance. Does the above fit a GT3 without any modification (straight swap in other words)? Has anyone fitted a SJ Sportcars "moulded" version? Has anyone got a proper Lotus valance for sale? Has anyone got any sound/video files of the Larini twin exit exhaust (at idle and at revs) Mick 99 GT3
  19. Recorded it and currently converting to divx. I'll send a copy to Kato to stick on the web site. Mick 99 GT3
  20. Welcome Hippo. Great to see another Esprit in the North East. Mick 99 GT3
  21. For the A/C the manual says:- refrigerant type R134a 1.0 kg The valves are in the engine bay. The guy who recharged mine had to remove the undertray to get at them. Mick 99 GT3
  22. Ive since found out that you must remove the frame to remove/replace the door glass. Also the manual says that to replace the door wipe seal you have to "position" the door glass to loosen the M3 fixing nuts. Well in practice you'll find out that you need a deep socket as the studs are too long. Then you find out that the socket fouls the glass on certain studs and you cant connect an extension to turn the socket. My plan is to loosen the glass lift mechanism an then see if I can then "position" the door glass, then see if I can loosen the retaining nuts without removing the door frame. Looking at the attached jpg its impossible to get a socket on the nuts anyway. Thanks for your comments and I'll keep you all posted. Cheers, Mick 1999 GT3
