Hi guys i have looked at and agreed to buy this car (for much less than asking price). and left a deposit. . I'm well aware the car was a press car, but anymore feedback from you guys about this car & whether its a good buy would be greatly appreciated.

I'm due to collect the car late next week, so its not too late if there are any horror stories. Please PM me if you would prefer discretion.

P.S. i can't wait till next week if all goes well :D

Hi, Steve. As rare as the Sport 350's are, you'd be hard pressed to go wrong in procurring one, even if a few niggles were present. Go for it, and congratulations!

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

That is car 0

Be aware that whilst it is decked out as a 350 it left the factory production line as a standard V8. It was then passed to Lotus engineering who converted it as a demo for the sport 350. Therefore the body isn't hand laid as the real 350's are.

Also it has had the 2002 rear light converion done. This was never standard on any 350.

You may want to see this thread for a video of it being used on track.

thanks for that, i came across the videos etc whilst searching last night. seeing as the car is no longer standard i wouldn't feel so bad about making a few more alterations, ie chargecoolers etc

Good luck with UK Sports Cars. They have the worst reputation of any car dealer I've ever heard.

Just a quick update. The deal on this car has fallen through, mainly due to major mechanical work being carried out by garages of an unknown quantity, That is not to discredit general garages, i know of a couple local to me that i would entrust any of my cars with. Its not a risk i'm prepared to take on a car like this with the agreed purchase price we had.

UKSC had very kindly offered me one of their wonderful 24 month warrantees on the car :blink: but i declined !

I have now found another car to look at which sounds very promising, so hopefully third time lucky

P.S. thank you everyone for your info and views .
