'93 Esprit S4 Owner


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I joined TLF a couple of months back to research info on Esprit buying, and after many, many hours spent reading posts, and also some excellent advice from fellow owners; I picked up my calypso red '93 S4 (magnolia interior) on Friday afternoon!

Since then it's done about 250 miles, and has had about 10 hours of intensive (obsessive) cleaning and waxing, and every moment has been just as amazing as I thought it would be.

The car is going in to North West Lotus for an engine rebuild and some other work soon, but once this is out of the way, I'll be looking to bring the car car out to a few meetings.

The forum is an excellent resource, that I think has helped me start this experience out on the right foot. Looking forward to meeting you all soon!

Andy

Thanks all!

@Backmarker - No, it's from Dave Ellis (drellis on here).

First couple of pics are below; not had chance to do many as yet but once I've finished cleaning it up, there'll be more to come!

Welcome to dreamworld Andy.

Wow one of the very early S4 cars with the aerial at the rear. How many miles has she covered ??

Hopefully will give you many years of trouble free motoring once she's back from open heart surgery.

Fab looking car.

Not sure that the car was ever produced with the aerial on the rear quarter?

Caught between a rock and a hard place in a catch 22 situation, So its 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. Your damned if you do, but your damned if you don't so shut your cock!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah I'm hoping so too. She performs brilliantly even with liner issues and the charge cooler pump inoperative. She's done 79k now, but doesn't feel even close to that.
