  6. I still maintain that if I can get into the car then it will all be worthwhile. When I can't get into an Elise I may have to look at an Evora....

  7. Dear all, thanks for all your interest in my problem. Hartleyj has given me an idea. I’m currently running a Morgan 4/4 which has reclining seats but a rather short seat cushion which I found uncomfortable. My solution was to keep a small rucksack under my knees which lengthened, as it were, the seat cushion and sInce then I been fine and can travel many miles comfortably. I think this is worth a try in the Elise. I also take the point from Lotus 111 about the Elise being the best car one can experience. I completely agree as my 2 hours at the wheel was one of the most exciting d

  8. +1 to this! my daily is a 2005 diesel toyota avensis, it's brilliant because i just don't have to worry about it. It's worth about £500 i reckon, so worst case scenario is i just throw it away It's also really comfy and slow and boring, and is everything a Lotus isn't. After a few days driving my lotus around i get back in the toyota and it's so comfy it may as well be a bentley. And then a few days later i get back in the exige and my mind is blown all over again Also, a great thing with Lotuses is that they hold their value. My first S2 exige i sold for slightly more than i pai

  9. If you spend the money on a daily driver, it will soon become ordinary. Spend the money on a weekend toy, and drive an old banger everyday, it will always feel special. Plus, cos of the low use, depreciation is not a killer. I’ll opt for the nice unused car with a mediocre daily everytime.

  10. Thanks Matt! It wasn't planned that way. The finance company have a chunk of my money from the Evora which they've taken since before christmas to work out how they will move it from deal to another. 🙃

  12. A big aero cup 250 would be my choice of Elise. Whist the grey is a little dull (imho)in the Oakmere example, the carbon makes up for it. I wouldn't be too worried about the fire. The here was a chap on the on the Cup page who'd bought a 'mint' 250 cup 18months old with 2k on clock, yet it was in the barrier a cadwell park 6months earlier with hefty damage. Sometimes it is better to just know the facts. Good luck with the hunt!

  13. I know of the owner - Jamie and history of the car. Yes it caught fire and the damage was costly. Fully repaired by Lotus themselves including a replacement engine IIRC. and rear clam etc. They also gave it a fresh 3 year warranty from the time of the repair, so long as it was serviced by Lotus dealer rather than independent. The fire was one of those rare chance things, Lotus recalled all of them and replaced the fuel rail bolts as a precaution - had mine done last April, I'm certain Oakmere would know the cars history and certainly wouldnt have took it if there was any chance of it bei

  14. Hi Mark, a cup 250 is made for the track, maybe not this one from what Scot say's the aero is made to work with the hardtop on track for best performance , but as Scot says it can be taken off, a 220 sport is not quite as capable on track but not that far behind, the supercharger give's both the cup and 220 a very linear power delivery so great fun. so what ever you end up getting it will be great to see you on a run when things allow cheers Ray

  15. Yes Mark yes I do remember and like you say no rush at the moment what with being in lockdown. Hope to see you back in a Lotus later this year and see you on a run again when hopefully we get the better of this terrible pandemic 👍

  17. I’d only had my Exige S 3 months so was in no position to buy really, however good offers incentivising which were compelling, but which won’t last. Central have only 16 allocations for next year from Lotus for new vehicles which is reflected across the dealer base with drastically reduced allocations. If you’re on the fence the time might be right now. Conversely this may help used values as word gets out fewer new models will be available. Lotus are gearing all manufacturing down on the Exige platform next year in readiness for the new model in 2022. Sounds like a “mini” Evija. Rumours

  21. Thanks all. Delighted with it. Have to say the build quality has improved drastically. Coming from a 2015 Club Racer which I acknowledge is more stripped out, it just feels more quality. Doors shut with a thud rather than a clunk, no rattles (so far), moving to new exposed gear linkages is a definite improvement.... Even the finish of the paint is pleasing, heard of cars arriving with swirl marks etc but none that I can see. Lots to be happy about at this stage Can’t wait to show it off to you all and get your thoughts if I can be honest! [emoji847] Matt Sent from my iPhone using

  37. Merry Christmas all, hopefully at some point next year we might finally make it to Classic Team Lotus...might be the latter part though. Thanks also to all those that help out and make the club the friendly fun place it is.

  39. There is also a 2m gap between the seats, rather that 2cm! Merry Christmas to all. I'm looking for excuses for essential car trips over the festive period. Suggests welcome. I know Ray has formed a support bubble with one of Karl's Llamas, so that one is already taken. Thanks to all who put in so much effort to the club. Calendars, runs, running the site etc. It is a really good community to be part of.

  44. Good news is that we have concluded the bits and pieces with the Evora and the finance provider. I was hoping for Xmas Eve, but Central are closed. It is looking tight, but not impossible for Wednesday. I'm tempted to wait until the 2nd if its after xmas as it will then be a 2021 registration if not a different plate. Central did mention delivering a car in between Xmas and NY which I guessed was yours.
