What made you happy today?

Great news @molemot and I wish you and a full and a speedy recovery.

Finally did my tax return today to be told the tax man actually owes me some money for a change, first time in years I have not had to pay extra. So gave the wife the figure I'm getting back and told her to go and book a holiday for the two of us... Thanks HMRC....:thumbup:

I ordered a new Lotus, having cancelled the Porsche. That makes me happy

After 5 years of hard work and graft my Downton mini fired to life this morning and sounded absolutely amazing, everything has been rebuilt so big smiles. Just lots of loose ends to finish off no

My Dad came through his open-heart surgery successfully.

I shall wear my best 3 piece suit and a pocket square to make sure you know exactly where to aim your guns you tardy socialist pigs! Damn you, you flat-cap wearing socialists with your hob nail boots and 30 dirty little children in your little terraced houses.  

Just make sure my last meal is a nice bit of foie grais, a fillet steak with thrice cooked chips in goose fat and a nice bottle of claret....  :2guns::wine:

If that's your last meal, it'll save on bullets.

I can get back to recovering from being a constantly tired, breathless, eye watering, unsteady wreck.

Nothing to do with the morning Brandy? No? :D

That would be Robert Coucher at a guess, Lotus hater and pompous arse extraordinaire.

And yes the gold S2 is the best Esprit :)

I once asked Robert Coucher why he hadn't put a Lotus on the front cover of Octane.  He replied "if we did no one would buy the magazine."

He's a sock cucker.

Back on topic...

Found out today that front wheels for my '90 Esprit are only £25 new from Lotus!!!

Considerably softened the blow of finding out (after I'd had it refurbed) that one of mine is buckled.

It's only the fronts. The rears are still about £180 a piece.

Already ordered a new one from the dealer today. Even he couldn't believe it! Was tempted to order a 'spare' but it'll probably just collect dust for the next 20 years.

Noticed SJ have them at the same price too.

Only here once

Supply and demand I guess.

Not a huge number of Esprits with each wheel type In the first place and then you need to find somebody that actually wants a new wheel. Presumably there are largeish stocks of some wheels just sitting at the factory with a very limited pool of potential buyers.

It occurred to me that they might be the same as the x4 on the later Excels but I think they must be a different as SJ don't list the same part. Maybe due to those Toyota hubs...

Not worth starting anything now...🍺
