Wondering if they'd put the original mono blocs back on and changed the reg.  

 

This was it new:

I really need to get the bumpers on my 82 put back to black as they should be.

Nice :thumbsup:

 

The white one (best colour) is a lot lower than the silver one.

 

Andy, your Turbo might be one of the two in 1982 that came out of the factory with colour coding. :)

No, the owner before last had it colour coded. Definitely going to revert.

the white car is lower because that car has a engine and gearbox inside it, the silver one is without engine and gearbox,

the engine is right now at the overhauling company, about 1 or 2 month's it comes back and its better as new! and also so clean as a new engine!


so stephen i am not good looking... Thanks.... haha LOL joke! i know for sure the cars look better then me!

A wee meet in Glasgow this morning. These two stole the show

 

I like that. I've never seen a gold one before.


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

A modern dilemma:

 

I was planning to get the Esprit resprayed soon and putting the bumpers back to the proper black.

 

But at Brooklands today most of the people I was chatting to thought I was crazy to do that and I should keep them white.

I think your first idea was a better one - car would look better with black bumpers and black mirrors. But hey....its your car so whatever you do will be right for you!

Hi Andy

 

I'd definitely return the louvres to black, and get the correct sized decal for the front.

 

I've owned my 82 Esprit for so long that I cannot imagine it with black bumpers and mirrors, however, if I were you I'd change yours back to black as you can always return them to be colour coded if you find you prefer them that way.

Unless it's a dry sump, body coloured bumpers are just fine, but I agree about the louvres. Shame I didn't get a chance for a close up look at your car today. Too busy admiring Chris's car's interior again!

Its not a dry sump. The louvres are definitely going back to black.

 

Actually the white essex-striped dry sump car I used to own had white mirrors from the factory.

 

The other non-standard issue with this car are the door speakers but I think they will have to stay.

I Love the Interior! looks very shinny and nicely red!

i hope my car looks the same soon,

and i think also the mirrors and bumpers and louvres black again,

then you have a great car! (and ofcourse the decal on the front)
