Neal Just to let you know your old car is being well looked after. I've now owned the car for just over 12 months. The lack roof is sometime a pain but every drive is an event

Coming up 12 years of ownership for me... still in love!      

Not quite "of" the 2 eleven, but certainly "from" the 2 eleven!

It does look great! What happens if you scan it? :D

September European trip in the 2 eleven.  The car was amazing on these roads, and faultlessly reliable. 

Sadly, I'm considering selling the car which is tough, it is very special, the last one ever built, signed by the factory, and in immaculate condition having won trophies in a number of shows over the last year.

Lovely car and brilliant scenery. I keep pondering selling my 2-Eleven in exchange for a V6 Cup. 2-Eleven is utterly sublime but the lack of weather protection makes it a pain to use regularly (no doubt there will be hardcore drivers who will use theirs no matter what the weather, good on them!). I just don't use it enough at the moment. Probably one day I'll move to a new Exige.

Adam, I've been through exactly that process. I know I will regret selling it because as you say, they are sublime. 

I went to the Cat and Fiddle meet in Macclesfield today in the 2-eleven, having put the original wheels back on (I did the Europe trip on a set of all weather tyres rather than the A048's) and again it felt amazing. Will be sorry to see it go.  Not sure whether to push it now or wait till spring?

I sold my 2-eleven about 18 months ago and I have to say I regret doing it :( Like most, I sold it through lack of use but once it's gone you realise that although it may not get used much, when it is used the highs you get are very high indeed.

The Exige V6 Roadster is a pretty damn good replacement though, and even if the high isn't quite as high as the 2-eleven, it does get a lot more use. If I had more space and money I'd have both!

The only car I regret selling:

Considered selling mine as well. Priced up a V6 Cup on a bad weather outing in the 2-11 (stopped in at Bell and Colvil to avoid the rain, left the lights on, drained the battery - b******d thing!) , but luckily didn't get as far as a test drive.

Took it for a spin a few days later again in the sun, on track; just sublime. Even this morning the relatively boring run down the A3 to Newlands Corner was great fun.

So, I found the perfect antidote to it - an S1 Elise! Did some man-maths, and it was cheaper to buy and run an S1 alongside it for more day-to-day use.

At the moment I've no plans to ever sell the 2-11. It's the car I've kept the longest.

could I please have a borrow of your man maths calculator - I've got a wife needs a little explaining to... 

 

Well done on the Elise - have to admit - my next target car. To go alongside the other....

Only here once

Redalex,

 

Congrats on the new car. I guess it was you at Newlands and passing B&C a little later? Looked and sounded great.

 

Trevor.

I'll get around to it at some point.

Looks like the hot water heater for the thermos sitting beside it. :getmecoat: 

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

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Dry sump oil canister? 

My 2-eleven will look like that next month when I get my full cage fitted. I'm looking forward to a trip to lotus motorsport. 

Aye, looks like a dry sump tank to me. 

 

Wow, that's exciting stuff, Adam!
