Is it just the pics or does it need guard flares to cover the wheel/tyre width?

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

Bit of both.  V8 flares would suite it nicely.  I ordered the wheels with the intention of a widebody (see above) but that didn't work out.

That's all I got for for now, but there are some shots earlier in the thread with better roof pics.

Bright contrasting wheels are very much "on trend" these days, but they can easily be unbolted and recoated in the future.

It looks good, I agree that the wheel arches need the flares on it to balance out the bigger wheels and once the mirrors are on it will look the mutts nuts. If you can get a mint lotus word badge on the back that will be a nice finishing touch. Like you say about the wheel colour, live with for while and change if want. Great refurb...thumbs up
