    Welcome Sorry if I'm teaching granny to suck eggs but remember this is rear wheel drive car with the engine over the rear axle. If you enter a corner too enthusiastically and then lift off the throttle mid corner it's akin to dabbing on the handbrake - possible to lose the back end and snap into a spin. These are fantastic handling cars but as Fish says, take it easy and learn the car

    I've just bought my first Lotus, a 99 Lotus Elise S1 with just 20k miles on it. What do you wish someone had told you when you got your first Lotus? Hit me with your best advice, tips & tricks, and warnings!

    Always always always check coolant level whenever you drive it - a sudden drop usually means head gasket failure. Also - don't let it overheat in traffic. Get used to turning it off before it gets too hot, and remember the water pump doesn't pump very much on tickover so increasing the revs a little will bring the temperature down, at least until it gets really hot. If you cook it your head gasket will fail.

    I'll second Fish and others on here - a well looked after early V6S would be the cheapest to buy and own, taking into account depreciation. I bought my Roadster from Silverstone in October 2017, and I reckon I've probably only lost £1500 on it, and that's comparing dealer retail price to what I'd expect to get for it privately.... All depends how much you want that open gear gate, and maybe a warranty etc.

    Always good to have on record from a selling/buying angle PJS also print out a 'health check' list when they carry out a service so you have a paper copy of condition. And there's always something interesting in their workshop to have a look at too...

    Might also be worth checking the toe links are all free and in good usable condition.

    From where you are Gav at unit4 it's an easy drive and he is a great guy, he services mine every year I drive up from 10 miles south of Birmingham well worth it and he won't rip you off. As for the colour of your car great choice SNAP. (All you need now is all the optional white stone chips round the front.)

    If a short tenure and then getting your money back are your first priorities then you can't beat a cheaper S2 . Something sub £30K from a private seller would be ideal and help you to sell privately when ready. A £40K S3 is tempting but if you buy from the trade you won't get all your money back, you will probably lose £3-to-4K if you sell back to the trade and private sales are not easy, unless you are quite a bit cheaper than the trade offerings - i.e. £3-to-4K cheaper! If you can find a decent S3 on sale privately and at a good price then that's a different story - that orange CR looks very nice I don't know if you've driven any of these cars but the S2 and S3 are VERY different - you might find that once you've driven them your mind is made up which one you would prefer

    Nothing to do with Lotus. But any fans of "The Italian Job" will love this, I think it is brilliant, just about every major scene captured in 4 minutes and in Lego. https://brickset.com/article/17341/the-italian-job
