  2. Sounds good to me chaps. Will pop this in the diary. No excuse needed to stretch the little legs of the new beastie.

  4. Unfortunately just the "standard H transmission" and the "pedals like a race car" no hooker installed, big or small feet.. mores the pity.
  5. Ditto the thanks to the organisers from me too, a superb morning out and nice to look around a workshop with so many differing cars sat within. Will look forward to attending again if that is possible.

  7. Hi Mark, Yep, still got it, but not for long. trying to get to the meet on saturday.
  8. Only just spotted this PG, not been on for ages. Certainly looks like me, going to the White Lion classic car meet, my diary suggests, a rare day that I actually ventured onto the hideous M3.
  9. mine fans died of under use as the AC leaks away fairly swiftly after re-charge. sorted the fans and the loom was dire. every wire was tired, crumbled away and green inside what was left of the insulation. rewired using the original multiplug and new bits the fans ends. then as you say an override dash switch to cycle the fans even in the winter, also heating the garage up a bit on landing back home! sounds like some sums are required for the new fans just in case.
  10. The fan wiring loom is usually in shocking condition. Double check up the loom for corrosion.

  13. That's quite usual for that website, fairly sketchy data from the V5's, although just checked my V5 and it's - Esprit Turbo SE. Majority of our cars on that site though are down as just - Esprit or Esprit Turbo.
  14. Superb stuff. Many thanks for taking the time to post those. Love it.
  15. Travis and Bibs have knocked it on the head. The original spec has some faults IMO. I imagine there may be very few utterly original ones left. People may want an utterly std one, but IMO a sorted one is far better, but without going too nuts. Loving the S300 and S4S, but I couldnt afford either all those years ago, I also didnt like the S4 body shape and/or High Wing spoilers. I didnt have 15-25K either. I was very particular, I wanted a silver car, preferably blue leather, but wanted the chargecooled/injection turbo spec. Almost all of the flat colours seemed to fade and a laquered car was top of the list. My choice was simple. Managed to find one, then - worked hard get it how I wanted it, sort out all the niggles/things I didn't like. Then attempt to keep it niggle free, or at least in a low niggle state, as TBH there's always something that could be fettled. but, as you are close by, come and see mine if you like, but it's sorned now. I may be lent on.
  16. I have a gold one similar and it's stainless twin, pics of it are here, as well as lots and lots of others. Maybe the forum mentioned there could be of use to you to for a value. I wouldn't say it would need a separate house insurance listing.
