I just noticed you left the 70th sticker (^^), and then noticed you don't have the top part of the windscreen smoked? Was it optional?

This is the screen that was fitted when I bought the car, I think it may have a slight green tint, but not sure. It's just as well there's no smoked top, as I sit so high in the car I wouldn't be able to see.

That bloody sticker drives me crazy, I hate anything stuck in the windscreen. Sadly, the wife likes it and says it has to stay, so I'm working on a gradual removal plan.

The top smoked part basically covers only the roof thickness so I suspect it's more to hide it from the exterior than really shade any sun for the eyes.

(I think it was optional but I am not sure, I think I read it in a price list ... but could have imagined that as well :D)

When i see pictures like that I am so tempted to look for an S4S but know I would regret selling my G cars.  maybe should just get a 3rd.  That really looks lovely  Ian.

That looks exactly the same as when the headlining disintegrates!

...and I got the same look when I trailered the car backwards and all of the "foam" in the B-pillar cavity disintegrated and blew into the car.

Are those Alfas the little 2 seaters they built that are in competition with the elise ?    We all know the Esprit is super low,  but they even look skinny compaired to the Alfas too !    and esprits are 6 1/2 foot wide lol !

Ironically the 4C is almost identical to the the Esprit in width. Ok the Alfa is 7cm taller give or take, but the Esprit is 20cm longer.

Esprit [S2] Width - 186cm,  4C Width - 186.4cm

Esprit [S2] Length - 419cm, 4C Length - 398cm

Those Alfa's are 8C, length 438.1cm, width 189.4cm and height 134.1, so a bit bigger and much higher than the Esprits.

Definitely good company!

 
   
   

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.
