  1. Well yes, you are looking at my car next weekend.... 🙄
  2. If only Goodyear would make NCTs again. Or at least sell the moulds to Longstone or similar...
  3. I use NGK BPR7ES in my S3 with a HC normally aspirated engine. The same go in my lancia delta which is turbocharged.
  4. That is looking very shiny...
  5. That red S3 - 1981 - has had a replacement front bumper and bonnet by the look of it? - as the bonnet has two air vents (which only came on the HC car) and the later indicators / bumper design on the front - so it is not original but not the end of the day of course... https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/auctions/1981-lotus-esprit-s3-knrMpg
  6. Sits quite low as well - not on standard suspension?
  7. haha, well, not yet. But might have you look at it at some point if you are available... looking forwards to seeing the condition of these tanks when you remove them!
  8. I shall take a look at that S1 tomorrow. My S3 will just be in the usual car park! Sadly not as exalted company...
  9. These fitted easily - the power packs / transformers / black box of tricks? fit neatly into the back of the pod and the bulbs just swap over. I have bought a pair for my lancia delta as well as the headlights on that were comically woeful.
  10. You can also buy just LED bulbs and fit these rather than the whole unit - this preserves the look of the older light units (if you prefer). You can buy the bulbs in either warm white or the more modern blue white. They are much much more powerful and far less current draw. I got mine from Classic Car LEDs. They are more expensive than the units above though.
  11. At the moment Super Unleaded will remain non E10 in the UK. There are also various other threads on this topic floating around, so might be some further details on those as well - not sure how to link!
  12. How did you speed match the pods? Is it just the older sluggish one went to be replaced by newer faster?
  13. Sparky: Important. You must replace the cambelt before starting the engine. Just some useful advice for you. (I will send my usual invoice, payment in gin).
