    94 S4s 43.500 miles documented mileage. FSH. Full MOT. Recent service including cambelt. Drives exactly as it should. Fitted V8 wheels. Original wheels with car but need re-furb to use. Leather in good condition. Very rare & excellent car.


    Redditch, Worcestershire - GB

  3. I really hate that Gav @ Unit 4, thinks he know it all... HE REALLY DOES 🤣 So service no.2 since he got it running 600 miles run in found a few little niggles....2 little oil leaks, tiny and minor. Rear offside bearing, which TBH I thought was tyre noise and the sill coolant pipe is weeping. Luckily reachable. A days work he says.... I say fricking awesome. All in all I'll take that and I'll tell you What, it's running like an Arabian bloody stallion. My car is MEGA 😎
  4. Not so simple. There are two fans, although they are both either running or not. However, there are two fan speeds, depending on the temperature. I believe the low speed starts at 98C and the high speed at 103C when the temperature is rising. When the temperature is falling, the fans should switch from high to low speed at 98C and off at 94C. . A/C is a further complication, and the fans always run when the A/C is on.

  6. Thanks for posting Kurt, there is a lot of love being fired over from the Foxes mate 😉
  7. I think the Toyota is similar to the S2 K series being on at 102 degrees and off at 96 degrees.
  8. On the K series its 102 deg, I guess it will be somewhere similar but I'm sure someone will have an accurate figure.
  9. Hi John, If it is any help I have the original artwork as a jpg file that I could send through to you such that you could get it printed locally? Regards Phil
  10. Hello , Does anyone know at what temperature the rad cooling fans cut in ? Toyota engine . Regards

  12. Geeze Kurt, only just catching up. Absolutely sending my best here buddy. Absolutely gutting for you all but glad to see your update and that things are progressing as best as they can. Honestly I don't know how you do it, I struggle everytime our 18 month old falls over, let alone the above.
  13. Continued best wishes mate.

    My Little Girl.

    We arrived home yesterday evening to find Amy’s bedroom made over by a small team headed by my best mates wife, People are really amazing! I’m struggling to text as in a bit of pain and only one lazy eye with which to see. Ihad an eye op in QMC to correct a squint and they said it’d hurt for 2 days and uncomfortable for 5, and that seems to be panning out as predicted! Still it’s not a patch (geddit??) on what Amy’s been through, so I’ll man up 😊 She has a very tight top lip, but no upper lip so the reverse face lift was a huge he success. There was no tracheostomy and no lip stitching so she can breath and eat normally (though I’m feeding her from a baby spoon again). Back to QUEENS on Tuesday to talk about stretching her top lip and talk about how further reconstruction will take place over the coming years. Again, I’d like to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to you all for such kind words deeds and gestures. you are wonderful people and appreciate everything you’ve done for us. Naturally I’ll keep updating the thread as and when, but right now I’ve got to return the oitnof hours cuddles I’m getting from Amy. Thank Tou Kurt x

  16. Hi John. I can't find a spare but I could lend you mine to be copied if that would be any good? Send me a pm Cheers Dean
  17. Hi John, I've removed your contact details off the post, probably best for people to message you on here rather than making them public. I think you will be very lucky to get one as only a few were made and there are non left to my knowledge and no intention to get any reprinted as the cost vs time taken isnt worth it for the club for something that probably no one else is going to buy now as its been so long. Good luck with your search though!
  18. Hello. i am trying to buy a Lotus in the Peak 2017 poster. Please can anyone help me ? Many thanks and fingers crossed John

    There's been a week and 5 deleted posts before now... Sometimes words aren't enough. So was really thankful for the opportunity to donate; thank you. Your post has made my day I'm so happy for you all. She's so brave. Looking forward to the next update. In the meantime I'll keep you all in my thoughts
  23. Tear to my eye Kurt. All sounds very positive and you are all being very brave.

    My Little Girl.

    Amy update from last night: Amy went into theatre later than planned at 12.30, very happy giggling and chatting. We were called back at 4pm to see our two main surgeons. There were pleased with the surgery but it had not progressed as planned. Once they took the crescents from either side of her nose they were able to close the gap above her lip. They are seeing this as a big success. The next step would have been to do the lip switch, however the very small size of Amys new mouth meant that a tracheostomy would have been necessary. The consensus of the team was that this would not be in Amys best interests. So the lip switch has not been done, and instead we will now wait for the stitching to recover and there will be follow up lip switch/cosmetic surgery once we see how this turns out and also with Amy doing ‘lip stretching’ exercises. Short term she has a very small upper lip, making her lower lip disproportionate. The shape of her cheeks and lower face has also changed, and there is stitching around the bottom and sides of her nose as well as one scar from nose to lip where the join is. The down side is that we will be back for further major surgery at some point in the future, maybe 1-2 years. The up side is that the further intervention was limited, Amy does not have her lips stitched together, and there is a good chance we can be home sooner to speed recovery. We will of course have a period of adjustment to Amys very small mouth, but we support the decision made by the team to postpone the lip switch work until this healing is secure. Amy is subdued but well in herself, watching a film and daddy has just fed her some weetabix. We feel worn out but relieved. More work another time, but today she is safe and well. And from this morning: The start of a new day for Amy. After her enforced pre op starvation yesterday morning, Amy enjoyed weetabix, coco pops, yoghurt and noodles before sleepy time. So, nothing wrong with her appetite (she likes her food so it’s a good indicator of how she’s feeling). Hourly observations during the night, but apart from one of her meds alarming at night which roused her, she was absolutely out like a light! I must confess that I just had to check her a few times to see how she was, but all is well. We’ve played a card game this morning and put on The Nutcracker DVD, and she’s ready for Weetabix when I left for the hotel to freshen up. Since the op, she has a very tight “moustache area”, but no upper lip as such. It’s taped over at the moment to protect the stitches from food detritus, but the dressing will be changed today as it’s a bit crusty. Feeding is with a baby spoon, but it’s all going in! I’m so proud of my little girl. I did manage to find a few minutes for a snooze this afternoon, in my favourite polo shirt....
  25. Update - been out for a good few drives now on roads I know well, and I've been tweaking the Nitrons and tyre pressures. It's like a different car from when I picked it up, ride and handling wise. The tyres are however budget Nankangs (not their performance tyres) with quite soft sidewalls 😮 so I've upped the pressures quite a bit and it obviously likes to move around a bit. Fun but not ideal. It's being geo'd next weekend as well, but the plan is to perhaps fit some AWIs with half decent road tyres, and use the black Rimstocks on track (but not with these Nankangs!). I've also fitted some proper radius seat wheel nuts, as the previous owner had mistakenly fitted taper seat ones. Scary stuff as they were already working loose when I took them off, and I had a long drive down the M6 in the dark, with lorries etc when I picked it up last week Really impressed with this thing for what I paid. I had forgotten how sweet a standard S1 can be, plenty of low down torque etc....and the Hurricane sounds a bit like carbs 😀
  26. Mine too after a Friday service with Gav and a clean. Sorry Chris. That said I'll pop over in the Q7 for social 😁
  27. Indeed Phil.......😜 I think £145 for the 135 cams is pretty good. Gav confirmed (of course) that they are a lot easier to fit if you're changing the cambelt anyway, just rocker cover etc off as well, and he called it the best "no brainer" upgrade you can do to a standard K.
  28. ....and so it begins! 😂
