Excited S4 owner

Hi All

 

Just collected my S4 on Saturday from Barry Ely in Maldon.

Great weekend enjoying it. Cant wait to get it out of the garage again when this dreary weather improves - hopefully at the weekend.

Congratulations Steve.

 

You've got it just in time to come along and meet some other Lotus owners at Duxford this Sunday. You would be most welcome - clicky

 

There's also a monthly meeting in Harlow - see this sub forum

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

Thanks for the replies. More pics to follow - I'll be taking some over the weekend and post them up.

Will try to make the Duxford meet once I confirm this weekends plans.

 

There's a couple of things I need to do on the S4 so you'll definitely be seeing some posts requesting advice (please).

- I think the fuel breather hose needs replacing (petrol smell in cabin, not apparent on test drive because tank was almost empty but noticeable after brimming it). 

- Coolant light comes on but temp is good - suspect sensor in header tank. Will check/clean this weekend.

- Revs appear high at time on idle, but not always.

- Want to get a ALDL to USB cable (or make one) so I can run monitoring software and really find out aht's going on and check things are working as they should (ie fans!)

 

Anyway - that's all for "other" topic posts.

But it's much more likely to be the rotten breather hose.

It was definitely the breather hose. I'll post a couple of pictures. I laughed when I saw both ends. Split, cracked, severed, you name it.

3 hours later new rubber hose fitted.
