Welcome Jimi, you have most definitely come to the right place.

My first Esprit experience was an S4.


Just because you can, does'nt mean you should.

Welcome and good choice of esprit, I have one!


The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Welcome from an Ex-S4 owner who had a load of work to do on his as well!

When they are running right, by god they are good!

Let us know whats wrong, many will have had similar experiences, people just don't keep them as they should!

Well where to start :) first off there is alot of rusty bolts and bits all over this thing, the engine feels lumpy like its missing every now and then, does not pull very well not like a car of this spec should , just about every electrical thing is broken or just not working right including lots of lights aircon windows etc and its got a fantastic oil leak somewhere oh and the paint job is rough around the edges its been resprayed but not to a high standard also with that there appear to be stress cracks here and there so a far bit wrong with it xD time to empty the bank balance on bits and pieces lol luckly i have two good friends one is a mechanic and one is a auto refinisher :D

Hi Jimmy...from an ex-S4 owner, also in yellow (not yours btw!)

When this happened to me, I thought...oh god this is gonna cost me dear, new engine needed or something, it was missing and vibrating like crazy at even low speeds...turns out just a bit of water in the plugs after heavy rainfall...half hour job to sort it...car ran good as new after...

here's a pic which i shamelessly post at every available opportunity but the S4 is such a great looking car B)

Homer : Marge, you can either sit there complaining, or you can knit me some seat belts...

Welcome Jimmy. Nice car :-)

Summers coming up your way, so there's plenty of time for fixing.

There is the Lotus show at Donnington in April Jimi. A lot of us will be there. You might want to pop over for a day or two?
