I was going to say that you should make sure you know what you want ahead of testing (colour, model, budget, ...) because as soon as you will try one you will want to bring the back home!

The good thing about looking now is that many sellers are also waiting for the summer and many dealers stock up so you are likely to have more choices. You won’t get a steal but you never really get a steal on Loti as value hold so well and sellers are usually patient.

There are quite a few locals near by, I'm in Kings Lynn, all of which will be happy to help.

Agree with comments above, I started out wanting a 350 sport, budget capped and everything. Epic fail. Spent double on a full fat 380 which I adore. Top tip, view many of the same car, they will all be different!! And expect to travel the UK finding the right one.

As above, Stratton are very welcoming and Silverstone are one of the best.

Good luck

Oooh thanks for letting me know about that! I'll definitely try to get there for at least some of the fun in the morning - I'm off on a tour of RAF Neatishead nuclear bunker that day too - Norfolk has too many things to do!

I've visited Strattons before - I inherited an underwhelming Aston Martin DB7 a couple of years ago and Strattons were mildly interested in purchasing it/selling it for me or swapping it for something Lotusy. If things worked out differently, I should have done a swap for a Lotus...just a bit of a difference from a flabby V12 DB7 to a wonderfully lightweight, tight Lotus!

Well, I didn't end up travelling much - just 11 miles to Stratton, and today, this was me😄. And yes - ended up with a similar epic fail and spending far more than my original budget! Anyone care to guess what I bought?! 🤔

Looks like you have bought yourself a very smug and devilish grin there Paul.

Enjoy.

Absolutely!!

I'll be picking it up (the car, not the grin!) on Saturday, at Stratton's open day. That's if I can wait that long, and don't demand to have it sooner!

Welcome to TLF Paul. :welcome:

I thought Elise, but my guess was more than likely based on a pure guess more than any sort of science. Have fun!

Any questions or issues with using the forums, feel free to ask one of us mods. We're here to help. :)
