Finally picked up my new car today at the Lotus dealer who helped me with the import. One previous owner in Germany since new. 1994 S2 in Empire green with only 49,000 km on the meter(!). Drove it bac

Just love M100...so under-rated. Hit 130mph in mine (autobahn), 25 years old and steady as Hendry on the final black 147......and so so good on a wrinkly road, I feel like Senna at Monaco qualifying. 

I’m already on LEC, as well as a couple of M100 FB groups. Lots of information available.

Very nice.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Agree hissing is standard. Ann's car has 150k miles and sill runs like new. i suggest Waxoil underneath as the chassis is not galvanized. Loads of info from LEC.

I wish I had some advice from LEC before Ann found she had lost the oil cooler pipes as they had softened over the years and popped off. She was quick enough to stop and save a wrecked engine. One learns with experience though. Only other problem has been the alternator brushes wearing down.
