Hi,

Where are you from ?

Just bought my S4S & been out for quick run out tonight, seems that not much goes on in the NE.

I don't remember ever seeing an Esprit on the roads around here ( Redcar ) & yet tonight I meet another driving towards me along the sea front at Saltburn. I'm going to have to sell it now if they're that common :)

Not sure what model as I only saw it briefly but looked very nice.

Regards, Phil.

Hi Phil.

At last, life in the NE.

I am near Scotch Corner , Richmond, so not far from you,

We have several Esprit owners locally who frequent this forum......................sometimes!! But we do have many Lotus owners in the area involved in various local clubs, you have a few NYLOC (North Yorks Lotus Owners Club) in Redcar/Boro but I dont know of any Esprits near you.

let me know if you want to meet up for a chat and tyre kick sometime and I will see if I can get a few other nutters (lotus drivers) to turn out.

Hi Martin,

I'll do that, as I said Lotus is all new to me so I'm just getting to know the car & the forums & clubs.

I've been sorting a few problems since picking her up last week, aircon, vacuum pump, tell tale bulbs & brakes but I'm getting there. It's a big learning curve but I've had some great help & advice from the forums so far & especially David Walters from over in the North West who has been a great help.

I'm hoping to get to the Lotus show on the 13th August but unfortunatley we are also going to a VW show at Harewood House where we are camping on Saturday night so I'll need to take the X5 to get all the camping stuff in.

You have some great roads over near you, I'll give you a shout one weekend & have a run over.

Keep in touch,

Phil.

Hi Phil, pleased to see you are finding your own way round running repairs as labour costs can be high getting dealer help to rectify minor problems, Dave Walters is a good bloke to know as he is a mine of usefull info, I met him recently at Gaydon Supercar Sunday. Shame you are busy next weekend as NYLOC are having a group run down to Donnington on Sat. morning, you would be made very welcome to join in the fun!!

If you are still having brake problems (All S4 brakes are CRAP) give me a call .......I have a solution!!

Hi Martin,

I will no doubt need to do something with my brakes but at the moment they are 90% better than they were when I bought her.

I had problems with the brake lights staying on ( another common problem it would appear ) & had a go yesterday at adjusting the brake switch, this was replaced by the dealer recently with one of dubious quality, anyway I managed to break it !

I've bought another more substantial one today & have fitted that but think I'll need to fit a return spring as well.

I've also taken off the cam covers tonight & re-sealed them as oil had started to drip onto the manifold ( please see my other post )

I'll look out for you all on Saturday, I'm planning on getting there about 10ish but as I said I will be in the X5 not my Esprit :-(

Regards Phil.

Hi Martin,

Saw your car, I think ( love the colour ) but no sign of you.

I didn't stay that long as there wasn't as much to see at the show as I had hoped & my Wife had a migraine so she ended up going to sleep in the car.

I'll give you a shout if I get chance & have a run over your way one weekend.

Cheers, Phil.

Hi again,

I'm hoping to get to specialist cars of Malton on 16th October, they have a breakfast meeting twice a year. There's always a good selection of cars turn up if the weathers ok & they do bacon butties & coffee as well, anyone else planning on going ?

Hopefully my new exhaust & cat bypass pipe will have arrived & be fitted by then :-)

Phil.

Sorry, no, don't read Pistonheads much these days, gone right downhill. Could we start a new thread with a new title, it makes everyone sound like a right bunch of tw"ts.

In the garage no-one can hear you scream
