  1. Its been awhile since being on here! and I haven't seen a lot of you in blooming ages1 Back in March last year I decided to bite the bullet and go head first into an engine swap in my S1, Covid helped this somewhat by stopping my boys football/rugby training and matches giving me week day nights and weekends. First I needed to source an engine, after Alan and Alex having there cars to ponder over I was initially looking at a K20A2 EP3 engine, but finding one under 100k was near on impossible unless it was re built and costing a small fortune! So I decided to look at the slightly

  5. Hi Guys, I've just joined the forum so thought I should say "Hi!". I am Joe, I have an Exige 410 Sport in Military Grey. It is my second Exige - the first being a black 350 Sport. I am 100% smitten with my 410 and hope to keep it for many years to come. I live in Northants on the Cambs/Rutland border and i am a life-long petrol head. I have a regular column in Absolute Lotus Magazine and i am a photo hawk on Instagram @jcxmig posting tons of pics of MIG 191 my beautiful 410. I also feature on the #MyLotus page richly filled with Lotus owner stories

  8. All collected. Also got a rear towing strap with the exhaust, wondering if I can get an orange rather than red TRx strap. I’m undecided if to fit it atm.

  15. I can't see that there was any finance Phil - I asked for (and received) copies of the invoice (which showed it was paid by credit card number *********1234, as they do) and the full payment credit card receipt with the same number. My only concern was the possibility of a 'log book loan' but he had both keys and the original V5 so that seemed unlikely too. I was going to do a proper HPI check (not a cheapy!) to further cover that risk. No, I think it was a straight up car, I simply misjudged the situation by making an offer rather than going straight in at asking. Covid further complicat

  22. Another ex vx220 owner here. Only got rid of mine last year and now into an Evora. I have been getting out in the peaks super early on sunday mornings in the summer but its a bit boring on your own so feel free to give me a nudge if there are any sheffield/peaks runs happening? Never realised there were so many lotus owners around town!

  27. I would like to give a massive thumbs up to pjs lotus at burton on trent. My car comes come back today in 35 years of car ownership I have never known such a nice place to deal with.

  29. I’ve been spending most of my time driving around the fantastically empty roads of Wales, very few vehicles, no scameras and beautiful views, sadly it’s in a Mercedes Sprinter rather than a Lotus🙄, delivering groceries for a well known supermarket. I did the same thing for a short time when I set up my own business three and a half years ago which is now on hold, they rang me a couple of weeks back and asked if I’d be interested in doing some shifts for them as they were desperate for drivers and I’d had the training( it’s not as simple as it looks you know). With the odd exception like t

Can’t wait to get it and drive an exige. not had chance yet🥴 really wanted to try all 3 together Elise exige and evora but the exige was what I really wanted so in for a penny 😬 would probably be in one already had the world not got all messed up. so not really sure what to expect 🤯 but I loved my Elise that first drive should be interesting 🤪

  33. Blimey Scott, that looks MINT! I can hardly believe that you were on most (if not all) of the greasy, muddy, cow shitty, gritty runs that we did last summer Mine's been SORNd for December and January and I might as well leave it that way until March at the earliest

  37. So, we have been picking blackberries to make jam (and a pie). Sugar was required and I was tasked to be the hunter gatherer and go to the supermarket , three minutes drive away. Reason enough to pull the Lotus out of the garage! Three hours later, I returned with the sugar. Needless to say, certain words were spoken to me expressing displeasure in my actions. This has lead to the revelation. I can’t be the first to choose a ridiculously long route to a destination to maximise time driving. I can’t be the first to be reprimanded for such an action. This must be a much repe

  38. Not much by way of updates from the last few weeks, as the car is pretty much finished, but I have done some serious miles in it - more on that below. It's a really lovely thing to drive now, no squeaks or rattles, nicely set up, it feels just right for fast road use. As promised here are a few pics together with a bit more info on the things I did soon after the clam refit.. Door waist seals I've had these for ages, they were bought from Elise-shop in the winter. Not cheap but I think they are probably the best replacements available, on balance, and they finished it off ni

  42. from kayj_prod 2015 trip (above)............ “ I'm back! Well, I got back mid-day on Saturday and then headed straight out for a gig at 3pm, so was quite a hectic day. A strange coincidence that the client happened to be Norwegian! I spent yesterday editing about 500 photos down to the 190 I have kept on my computer and the 40 highlights I have posted to Facebook. Maybe just a select few here! Elsie behaved perfectly and any problems were either predictable or mine. I had one morning where she wouldn't start, having been out in the rain... just left her to

  43. Well last night I played myself at scrabble as Marie and the kids all refused ☹ In the end it was a surprisingly tense and very close contest - Right Dean took the lead early on with a seven letter score (fifty point bonus!) and remained in front until the very last go. I actually found myself rooting for Left Dean at this point as I always love an underdog. Incredibly, at the finish Left Dean sneaked ahead by dint of Right Dean being stuck with a Q and having to deduct 10 points. 😁

  44. All, It has been some time since I last updated the blog. All these years on, the little Lotus is still going strong. She is now 20 years old and looks and drives as good as ever. The love for this iconic car remains. My days of mods and getting under the car every weekend are over I think. I now simply enjoy the ownership experience and driving! Oh, I also do a little bit of polishing - just a little. This car is simply pure magic and medicine to all gloominess. 😁
