Hi from Watford

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of buying a new 350, just waiting for the registration to come through. This will be my first Lotus however I've owned a Caterham (224 bhp Zetec on carbs) for over 20 years. Rode bikes for 30 years including doing a number of track days without hurting myself.

First saw a black V6 at Malcolm Ricketts open day a few years ago, much better in the flesh than photos.

Looked at the Porsche 718S but when I took my wife along she thought it didn't look special enough. After we went for a test drive in the Lotus she said let's try the Porsche!

Welcome to TLF. An Exige will seem like luxury after bikes and a Caterham (I also have both). I'm sure you'll have a whale of a time in it. Flipping good package the 350. Mega cars.

If it helps you can tell the Mrs that the roof comes off the Exige and that old ladies drive Boxsters!

Enjoy!

Nothing like a bit of postcode snobbery to make you feel welcome

Apologies if my reply seemed a little harsh. It was meant in jest an aimed at another old Watfordonian. :)

@M7CKF Tims comment was aimed jokingly at our resident Watfordonian....watforian.....watfordsownion......Sparky :) 

Hes a top bloke but a bit of a drunk!

Anyway. Welcome to the forum. You won't be disppointed with the Exige. It's a real drivers car whereas the Porker is for Hairdressers and make up artists :)

We discuss everything from Politics to Computergames, Bikes to Trucks and (of course) anything Lotus. So please feel free to join in with anything that interests you!
