  1. Dave Ladkin on Mloc, does these kind of things and would be happy to help - his forum name is 'Ladders' He's the manager of a graphic design studio, has done the sunstrips for Le Mans in the past for some cars etc Can give you a direct email Bibs if you PM me.
  2. Having seen your previous pics, I knew these would be worth a look! Well done! I feel calmer already.
  3. OH NO!!! Not the Langham Place!!!! Sorry! Only joking, I have no idea about that hotel, certainly a 'bargain'! Hope you have a great trip, Just booked up my April 07 visit a few days ago...
  4. The only time my missus eyes light up, is when I say its for sale.... She's been in it once in a year, and said 'I prefered the shape of the other one'.... (Elise) Ho hum, anyway I find its better without ones 'rev limiter' in the passenger seat! Give up now....
  5. Thumbs up! Big grin! But why no Elise owners? Surely we are all one happy family? (they could be made to sign a best behaviour agreement first?) Perhaps Lotus are planning a general public open day as well? Went to the last one, and extremely oversubscribed, so worth another go I am sure, I am sure Lotus could use the extra moula, and it was a great day.
  6. may not be as comfortable as the Esprit however...
  7. My advice would be find a reasonable hotel, I stay here 'Miramar' - it is cheaper than most, but perfectly adequate, depends on if you want luxuary or spending money! It is just off Nathan Road, a tourist strip in Kowloon, a 5 minute walk to the seafront and views of the Island skyline. Penisula is great for afternoon tea, there is often a queue, about
  8. Thats great! I think between you two, you just 'fixed' the back, Lotus, please pay attention...? Now we need to poll the alteration, to see if this is a general view or just mine! B)
  9. Respect! I can only begin to comprehend the dedication required to work on parts like this! Chin up and all that! Glad to hear you got there! Must be some relief! somewhat off topic, just noticed your new wheels on the GT3?! Pray tell, what are they? I like!
  10. Ok Jon, well guess I need to say yes to this, after our mails! Why don't you just open a garage and I'll bring her round, that would be much easier! (for me!) Shall I start my list of parts here???
  11. Red, yes, I think those large simple rear vents are MUCH better, in fact if I ever got one I think I might take a hacksaw to it to get that look! Although that is making me cringe at the Max power of what I just said.... sorry...
  12. Have to say the rear vents have always been the down side to the styling for me, however bizarrely removing them makes it look like something is missing, how about some bigger vents, blend them all into one, without the strips??? I liked the Lotus lettering, but then I previously had an Elise... Interior was so much better, but agree it could go further...
  13. Just called Jayne at Hagerty, very friendly, very competitive, gets the thumbs up from me! Recommended! Thanks Nick!
  14. I can echo Jon's comments, thought it was great! Loads of Torque, so easy to drive, and a real step up in the everyday car practicality from the Elises. The shape is SO much better in the flesh, the white one did look particulary good, although I do think the shape is rather dull and boring, its as if they were trying to appeal to everyone, and not put anyone off. Also for
  15. Yes, would just like to add my BIG THANKS!!!! as well. The track time was really worth it, and quite a 'moment' for the memory scrap book! A great day!
  16. Bibs, wasn't gonna be around on Sunday, but will pop over in the evening to sign in and pay with my passenger, as I live just down the road. See u Sunday!
  17. looks good, can we see one in yellow with a spoiler please???
  18. I think for the price of D) I will sell you my wife, if you find you need a new one. (well slightly used)
  19. I hope so much the 2+2 styling is great, this would be my dream next car. Come on Lotus, please make it great, get in Julian or someone who knows the brand. Show me a sketch and I'll get my deposit out. 2007 please.
  20. Had my B service at Lotus Sport, and very impressed. They get a thumbs up from me, now if they would only reply to my email of yesterday!
  21. I think that included a NEW engine, thats how I read it....
  22. It does sound like the senior police officer got him locked up over the weekend as revenge, and I read it as the policeman is off duty in civilian clothes. I don't condone saying F'off to anyone, but this really takes the biscuit! I ust to defend the police and view them as knights of justice, however as time goes by one realises they are just human, I was walking behind 2 officers down the street who were quite loudly degrading a guy on the other side of the street in dreads and 'hippy style' clothes. They then went on to talk about how all hippys were scum etc.... Obviously this is just
  23. Indeed, I think it will be very hard to compete with the 911 or Aston, and consider these to be the competion, best avoided! Sure it will be a Lotus and much more individual, scarcer. But 911 reliability vs Lotus perceived reliability will count if the prices are too near. If I had 80k to spend on a motor, I would probably look at the 911, Aston, then buy a Audi A8 or BMW M6 with back seats and better support, development budgets... If I had 40k, A Noble perhaps, or keep my Esprit and add a larger runabout car! However I want to like the Esprit, lets hope they can get JB into one!
