  4. 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. Amazing mate it looks the business. We know how much you loved your S2 Exige mate... That’s why me, scatty, Alex and Jeff have had a whip round and bought you one of these to get you some of that noise back 😝

  11. 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

  18. 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!

  25. 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

  30. Toyota are there, and there is something on the lotus website too. I couldn't see Caterham, BAC, KTM, Polestar etc. Perhaps we are that niche now! Or perhaps the UK government should think a bit more about it's UK manufacturing entities. (hee hee, I got to write the word titties without incurring the wrath of #metoo, or perhaps not now I've said that...................!)

  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

  40. Hi all, Just been messaging Scott Scotty on Instagram and joined up. I’m based in Sheffield, any locals? I’ve recently jumped into my Club Racer finally getting a proper Lotus having had a VX220 when I was 23 back in the day! Just treated myself to a valved 2bular system...it’s a thing of beauty to hear! 😂 Be delighted to join you on some runs out and meet you all soon Cheers Matt

  43. Thanks @MrWill. In the first six months it has had a new alloy rad, new alloy fuel tank (including a one way valve, otherwise fuel spills out of the filler!), CV driveshafts, LED exterior lighting, tyres and a stainless exhaust - so loads of invisible stuff. Next is a new roof, which won't be cheap, and a new dash to replace the homemade one. As the dash is coming out then I may as well rewire it too. You never really own an old Lotus, you just keep restoring it for the next owner!

  45. New acquisition agreed with collection next Saturday. As it’s covered c300miles and described as new/mint my expectations are rather clearer than the last purchase attempt. For those like me who enjoy the geeky lotus build specs, for some reason this car has the door cards (arm rest/pocket) belonging to the Phil popham gt410 (or 400), yet it was built after the 400 ceased production and prior to the launch of the gt410🤔.

  46. Rolled it out into the sun to try and get some heat into the paint! It's quite green...... Back end back on.... Will be back out again tomorrow sitting and getting hot! Hopefully it will harden the paint. Managed to knock anther bit off yesterday......
