Hi all, Having posted an initial post to ask for some buying advice on Lotus Esprit, I missed the V8 advertised on eBay (not sure of seller was/is a forum member), before I started looking at S4s

Looking forward to the next meeting when normality returns !

Congrats on getting into lotus ownership.  Back in 1981 I so so so wanted my first lotus, an elite 501, that I had never driven any lotus before driving the one I bought from Len Street Chelsea when I drove it home to Hemel Hempstead. Did not even drive on the test drive.

Have been addicted to them since.

(Mind you it did have a break down on the way home.)

Lovely S4s....a better call than a V8. Plus its ex forum's member car, which makes all the difference.

With my S4 the last 4 owners were all on this wonderful forum. The Gold membership is worth every penny and more  👍

Welcome Stanley - you’ve definitely bought a fantastic looking example of an S4s in a stunning spec. Nick cherished the car by all accounts and I’m sure he’s pleased it’s gone to someone like yourself, that sound like they will really treasure the car. A great result all round. She’s a beauty - enjoy!😎

Lovely looking car and great to read your enthusiasm.  Hopefully when meetings resume we might see you both out near Guildford for one of the monthly Newlands Corner gatherings.

Thanks Stephen, buying these cars from a lotus enthusiast is the only way to do it I think.  Nick definitely has treasured the car for 17.5 years, I think I am even mor OCD than Nick when it comes to cars 😉
