Hello from Sweden


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Realized I had to become a member here so I can post questions. The Swedish forums are good but not so active, response time can be quite long.

 

I bought my Esprit Turbo MY88 about a year ago. Last summer I drove it for roughly 10 000 km (6250 miles) with essentially no problems. The only thing that happened was that the first week the belt to the vacuum pump came off. This was due to the bolts unscrewing themselves. Fitted new lock washers but they came undone 5 days later again, so applied some loctite and no problem since. My view is that cars like these should be used and not stored away in the garage so in the summer I use it as my everyday car. The car is calypso red and RHD.

Copenhagen is a lovely city! Would have been nice if I could have joined up, but I've got tickets to this event at Mantorp Park, http://autoropa.se/ . The url is in Swedish but Autoropa is the agent in Sweden for Ferrari, Maserati, McLaren etc etc so it will be an abundance of nice cars there (maybe not so many Loti though). I am not sure if it is correct but I like the: one Lotus, many Loti :)

We've got a Finland area in our regional groups which doesn't see much action, shall I change it to Scandinavia?

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