Hello!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, although I'm now on my third Lotus I've only recently signed up to TLF. 

I've said hello on the LF1 thread but thought I'd properly introduce myself. I started out in 2014 with a gorgeous 2007 Elise S in Solar yellow, moving onto a Formula Red Elise S 220 Cup last year. It was difficult to know where to go from there but last month I acquired an Exige LF1.

Having a great time with it so far, the car is in excellent condition and it's certainly a jump in performance from the Elise. Before getting an Exige I didn't really see how it would give me any more enjoyment than the Cup - considering the V6 is only half a second quicker to 60... I've quickly realised that it's a completely different kind of 0-60 experience altogether! Overall the Exige just feels much more planted, the theatre of driving it is incredible and the attention is far greater. 

I hope to bump into you at some events, I'm certainly not shy of driving my cars. I'm in Carlisle so if there's anyone around and about let me know. Dave

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

Hi Both - it's number 78 celebrating the 1987 Monaco Grand Prix, it's pretty cool having Ayrton's signature on the side :)

Welcome from another LF1 Owner.

Nice set of Lotus cars you have had.

You can't have had the Elise Cup for long?

Where abouts are you based in Carlisle?

I'm often around Carlise, might spot you.:driving:

Hi Paul. I had the cup 12 months and one week, I didn't have any reason to change it other than I wanted the LF1. Suppose it's a good enough reason! 

Do you come to Carlisle in the Lotus? I've got the car out most weekends rain or shine :)

I'll be popping along to Lotus Carlisle for my free service and ECU software upgrade very soon.

There was a meet at Penrith yesterday with the exiges com crowd. I could not make it, but they have them every month, usually in the lake district or close by.
