  1. Correct, I hate the shape of the S3 front bumper, if you look at the lines of all seventies derived british cars and look at their Federal accepted front bumpers, you can clearly see a bodged approach!
  2. will the S2 bumper fit the S3?? I don't like that bumper style but I think the S3 would be the safer option for me, also slightly quicker...
  3. Jussi, It looks to me as if the only detail which changes is that of the front bumper, in particular the front skirt. Am I right? Ron
  4. Can anyone tell me if there is any differences to the exterior lines of the S1, 2 & 3s? I know the bumpers are different but is the actual
  5. I had a look at an S2 at the weekend with a view to buy. I made the following notes and would appreciate any comments on them. Oil consumption fairly high and a slight lack of basic grunt. Engine re-build? It
  6. Hi, I think the 1967 Alfa Spider 33 was OK but not my favorite. The cars he designed when he was Chief Designer at Bertone all stand out, none more so than Aston Martin DB2/4 Bertone.

He's a wiz at Alfa V6 cambelts so the Lotus should be right up his street. He
  10. Thanks for the replies so far. I have been an Alfa owner for the last year so the expenditure on servicing and having problems fixed must be similarly chronic, my cam belt service came to
  11. Hi Folks, I've logged on to ask your advice. I'm looking to buy a Lotus after many years of yearning after one! I'm quite a young driver and have only had one car (my Alfa 156 2.5 V6) and want a rear wheel drive sports car. After narrowing it down from many different makes I've settled on my old favorite - the Lotus. I'm a designer and have always loved the work of Giugiaro, in fact one of my relations worked with him on the Alfa Bat concept cars - a chap by the name of Scaglione. I've always hankered after the S1 but understand the S2 would be a more sensible choice. I have
