Hi again Alex. You found the Introductions section OK then? :)

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Patience mate and don't buy the first one unless it's an absolute cracker. The right car will come along and you will know it when you see it.

It's weird, but that's how it happened for me. There was a few things to fix, but as soon as I saw my S4 I knew I was going to own it.

What's that ad say?

Unless the P reg is a private plate then it won't be a new dash car as standard. I was led to believe that this may be a car that was LHD Lotus car that may have been converted to RHD with the new dash.

I'll get around to it at some point.

Its not the green one thats in Wigan is it? because that is a very late car and its been on sale for about two years (probably because he never gets back to potential buyers once they contact him) Judging by all the things its had done it should be a cracker. Oh and welcome

im alex looking for an esprit . um lovely weather isnt it lol

Hi Alex ....welcome to the forum where real nuts share information.

We have all had a rather traumatic experience with one of our members ,some have seeked counselling and others helped with the forceful removal of the CEO of Lotus in lieu of this trauma.(No not the party now that DB is gone !! The other thing guys ....the chop him up and DHL him thing!!)

I digress ,as a newcomer who potentially wants an Esprit ......we want to know as much about you as possible so please forward a 200 word essay on your backround ,family history .Please include things such as sport items that you are comfortable operating such as er maybe icepicks ,for example.

Now that is a better lol than the cuss weather

Technically sound ...Theoretically poked !

We could potentially accept this as a pamphlet .We would appreciate a picture though ...perhaps of you and the family (no photoshopping, Bibs has installed software to detect this since our traumatic Icepick incident)

We would furthermore request that if you refer to our preferred brand ,you caps lock the first letter .viz Lotus

Cant wait for the picture ...do you guys intend marrying soon? Perhaps we can assist in getting you into a Lotus prior to the wedding.(After the wedding will render you pretty much poked and they get tighter with the noose )

As someone who came for a well sorted Rx7 myself you will like the power deliver of the V8, oh and you never have to worry about stalling it or moving it around with a cold engine.

S4S wing. Much nicer than the V8 wing. :thumbup:

Looks very tidy. Exhaust pipe outlets look too low?

Fix that front plate too, looks silly like that. Other than that, good looking car, I bet it sounds the business! :thumbsup:

It should be easy enough to get the exhaust bends sorted at an exhaust place to get them lifted slightly.
