  5. I’m liking the new Alpine A110.

    Do it Kurt. I'm really liking them. Like the original and I think this is one of those cases where they have re-done it it and done it very well - for the modern world. It looks as though it's fun and is a sense of occasion to drive it - but it's also practical enough to use as an everyday car if you had to. A lot of the youtube car vloggers have been driving it and waxing lyrical about it. They drive all sorts of much more expensive stuff. One guy was amazed that it felt more 'special' than his Cayman. I'm not! Porsches are well built and very capable cars but to me they are not 'special' at all. This new A110 is. But I guess if they carry on making them as standard production run that feeling of being special my go a little.
  6. I’m liking the new Alpine A110.

    It's funny, my rich mate who races modern cars probably hasn't raced anything with an old fashioned manual shift in years, they have all been paddle shift.

    Thanks fellas. I saw that one, the only one but there is no way I'm paying that. I may have found someone local on exiges.com fingers crossed.
  8. I’m liking the new Alpine A110.

    I think it’s simply the march of progress Dean. A clutch is just something else to have to think about, and when autos can do it all quicker, smoother and with more efficiency, then why would you ‘need’ a third pedal? Much like ignition advance and retardation has been taken away from the driver, double declutching went too thanks to that pesky synchromesh. I took an F Type to Spa this year, and it’s auto was fabulous, particularly through areas of heavy traffic. I’m guilty of having dumb feet, I can’t heel and toe, so I’m really liking the idea of clutchless changes, double clutches and lack of slush boxes. I do however see why some would prefer a manual.

  10. S1 Elise/Exige Switch Blank (205)

    get yourself to a local scrapy that might have a Peugeot 205 and get a blank off one of them, some 205's will have a blank switches and some don't, here's a shot from a 205GT that has a blank switch I'd be very surprised if a scrapy is going to charge you more than a quid for one , you will have to cut, snap or unscrew the dash around the switches off but I've been replacing all my switches for the hazard switch off these 205, and have got quit good at getting the switched out in a very short time now, why pay someone £30 for one when a trip to the scrapy on a Saturday morning will do you good and while you're there also take (buy) the hazard switch, it will work as a replacement for any of the switches on the Elise S1 if any of yours get sticky later on, but make sure it latches on and off smoothly or it might be a duff

    They are from a Pug 205 aren't they? Blank one here but might not have the same 'dimples' on it. Can't see from the pic. https://www.ebay.ie/itm/Peugeot-205-Cti-Ultra-Rare-Centre-Dash-Switch-Blank-/122829658817?hash=item1c9937dac1

  14. I’m liking the new Alpine A110.

    Well it's good to hear they are honest about it. I think it's a shame though that the majority of people nowadays who have fifty k to spend on a 'drivers car' prefer a paddleshift. But maybe I'm just an old fart.

  16. S1 Elise/Exige Switch Blank (205)

    Rocky was closed today, I'll try and get over next week but I'm hoping someone on here might have one.
  17. S1 Elise/Exige Switch Blank (205)

    Your probably not going to like this answer but I’ll bet you can get one from a certain Lotus breaker/dodgy seller in the West Midlands....obviously having tried all other routes first.
  18. Mark forgive me, I'm having trouble finding one of these. Does anyone have one knocking around or if completely bored with absolutely nothing else to do could help me find one. They seriously are like hens teeth
  19. Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Seats look spot on, very retro. I agree with the cakes, stick with clean stradale look for now at least.... don't go making any rash decisions.......as if you ever would
  20. If you think 2017 was awesome, hang on tight for 2018......it’s going to be a cooler then the cool side of the pill… https://t.co/yFgzvkbMiK

  21. Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Love the seats and you could always add the light pod later. Live with it for a bit and see if you get ‘bored’.
  22. Nlc - Lister Bell Stratos Build Thread

    Went and collected the carpets and seats today. Had the seats done in the period colour for a lot of the original road cars: It's suitably awful but cool in a 70's kind of way they look a lot less yellow in the 'flesh' more of a baby sick beige colour! I got bored on Wednesday so decided to remove the engine . Wanted to make a few changes to a couple of bits attached to the chassis that were difficult to get at. Didn't take too long to get out. Now I can do the bits and bobs and know that when the engine goes back in it will stay in! Well, until I decide to mod it Almost sorted the ITB setup now. Karl has sent me a full set of 3D printed levers. Just need a spring from Jenvey as I seem to be missing one. Order that today. Hope to mock it all up next week and then it's on to bring to make an airbox...... Do I put a light pod on? At Lister Bell today they have a car with a body like I have ordered but with a 4 light pod on: Can't decided...... They can be removed but leave holes in the nose of the car where the fixings go. The wires pass through a hole that can be covered with a nose badge. Without the pod they are very 'clean' and look good, but the pod is so 'Stratos'!

  25. Introductions / S1 Exige Wanted

    Lol. You can come off that now Very possibly could be.
  26. I’m liking the new Alpine A110.

    They have never hidden the fact of the auto gearbox choice, it is a cost issue, they could not develop 2 gearbox, so they picked the dct as porsche sells more pdk anyway. I think when they say accessible, they mean you can focus on the handling more, without focusing on the gearing, so pretty logical. Almost no one knows how to heel and tow, and 80 percent of the people claiming they do, always have a wrong timing ..
  27. Following successful screenings of the McLaren and Williams films earlier this year, The Northern Lights cinema in Wirksworth (DE4 4FG) is screening the Ferrari film on Monday 8th January. For those who have not heard of the film, the following may help: The 1950s. Dawn of the iconic Scuderia Ferrari in the Formula One World Championship and deadliest decade in motor racing history. As cars pushed the limits of human ingenuity, drivers lived on a knife edge between life and death. At the centre of it all was Enzo Ferrari, a towering figure in motor racing and patriarch of Ferrari who dared to dream about speed in ways nobody else could. Amidst the stiff competition within his team, two of its stars, Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn, decided that their friendship was as important as winning the next race. Anyone interested should book here: https://www.thenorthernlightcinema.co.uk/ I have no connection with the cinema, other than wanting to support an enterprising local business who are keen to show films that some larger cinemas wouldn't bother with.
