Congratulations, the Excel is probably the most under rated lotus but is (in my view) the most practical. I have owned 4 over the years.

Welcome to TLF. :)

Funny about seeing Lotus vehicles on the road. In Australia, I have seen one Esprit S4, one Elise, one Exige and one Evora. That's in 13 years since I have owned my Esprit.

On my trip to the UK etc, one Exige which I saw from the tour coach and another Elise, which was Bibs one when he came to meet me.

Other than that? Only on drives with other Lotus drivers.

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

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.

Your car looks lovely, red really suits the excel. 

Good news the engine is not leaking water, there are always “issues” that need sorting 😀 but generally the excel is a reliable car.

I’m based in Stroud so not a million miles from you.

Best car ever and a favourite of the MD of that time. Always called it "The most sorted Classic Lotus we made". I had one for 2 years and loved it!
