A few weeks ago I picked up my Esprit V8-GT after its major service (belts, engine out, the works) and having had a host of additional work done and parts fitted (turbos, wishbones, new brakes all round, anti-roll bar, the list was huge), some of which I’ve accumulated over the years from e-bay, Piston Heads and the like, plus a host of bits from SJ Sportscars and PNM as well as Lotus themselves of course.
There is not enough space nor time to list everything the guys did, suffice to say they had the car for 5 weeks because of delivery delays, none of them attributable to Murray or Lotus I hasten to add. At all times Craig kept me fully informed of progress, offered options to help contain costs and chased up the the third parties on my behalf. He even shipped the wheels round the corner to get them refurbished for me whilst he was waiting for the new brake kits from PNM and has since arranged to get the seats done at his recommended trim shop.
All in all another great experience. And the car – magnificent. On the day I picked it up I drove up to Aberdeen for the Alford Speedfest and spent an hour and a half giving passenger rides round a short fast oval. The car was perfect and remains so
Yes it was expensive but all things are relative. I’d hardly spent anything on the car for over two years bar tyres, MOTs and routine servicing. Its now good for at least another 5 years plus.
And I should give a mention to Brandon, probably the nicest car sales guys I’ve ever met. He’s always ready for a good blether and gets the kettle on every time I walk in – even though I have only bought a Volvo from him!
