Congratulations Robin and welcome! I see that Barry managed to get the front number plate on straight for you. Or did you do that?

Enjoy!

I will simply never live down the wonky number plate...... still that was the smallest of issues with v8 ownership.

She’s looking lovely and clean @RobinB5 - that wax in the tlf kit actually smells good enough to eat doesn’t it 🤪

Nice one Robin. My first Lotus (and it will be my last) is my red S4.

Could not have been happier with it over the last ten years. Doesn't matter if an Elise/Exige/Evora would have handled better, I always wanted an Esprit and it eclipses anything else that I have ever driven.

I still prefer the way it does everything to the way a mates S2000 and then his Boxster drove.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Azure blue & magnolia are the best colour combination ever. Well done, hope all goes well for you. :driving:

I seem to remember that Barry mentioned once that he thought that S4 might be haunted?

On the plus side - the Esprit is actually saving you money already.

Best colour ......stunning car!!

I don't know what's has been done to it .... probably everything but put in a high torque chip you will love it and not stress the engine too much!

Enjoy the apex of car design ( visually  that is....)
