  1. Many thanks for the responses - hopefully it wont need anything for a while but its worth knowing where to take it for when it does. Car is currently tucked up in the garage hibernating for the winter and will be woken up in the spring.
  2. I have a Lotus back in my garage next to the Mustang again after 2 years away and wondered which places in the midlands people are using at the moment? I am based in Leicestershire so any recommendations local would be appreciated. I used to use Guglielmi in Daventry but as they don't open weekends or offer a loan car anymore, they are not really convenient for me to get to anymore. Had bad experiences of the two main dealers - Silverstone and Central so would rather not use them. Do Monster Motorsport in Loughborough still specialise in Lotus and has anyone used them recently? Many thanks.
  3. This advert is COMPLETED!

    For sale is my other half's MR2 Roadster. It is the facelift model with the revised bumpers and lights and the all important 6 speed gear box in silver with full red leather including the "MR2" logo on the head rests. We have owned the car since 2010 and it has been her daily drive. As such it has covered 126,000 miles but her commute is 25 miles each way down the M1 hence these are all motorway miles and the car certainly does not show its age / mileage - it drives perfectly with no knocks or rattles etc and everything works as it should. It is a great little car and handles really well (almost elise like). It has a full set of T1R's all round and has just had a full service including Gulf racing oil, oil filter, spark plugs and air filter. 3 sets of keys included. Unfortunately the car has sat in the garage unused for the last year since we had our first child as a 2 seater mid engined convertible is not much use for carrying kids and pushchair etc in and my other half replaced it with a Qashqai as her daily drive. I had planned on using it as a weekend toy and for track days etc but just dont have the time at the moment now that my weekends are filled up with family activities. I did get it out and take it for its MOT a a few months ago as I was going to use it over the summer but unfortunately it failed on emissions and the handbrake both of which I suspect are due to it having not run for a year. As above, it has just had a full service and lambda sensor which has sorted out the emissions but I haven't had a chance to look at the handbrake yet although there cant be much wrong with it other than it possibly needing a new cable or pads or the calipers maybe need a good clean and grease given that it has been sat with the handbrake on for the best part of a year. This is factored into the price but apart from that it is a fantastic little car and we will be sad to see it go. The soft top roof is in great condition with no rips or tears etc and all of the electrics work fine. The rear alloys could probably do with a refurb as they have started to corrode a bit and there is the odd minor age related mark as you would expect of a 16 year old car but nothing major.

  4. Its just one of those which do you follow decisions - heart says 135R as ive always wanted one and I love the look of it with the colour coded exterior bits and blue interior plus it is said to be the best of the elises. Head says get a Toyota engined car for reliability and fact it will be newer etc. Heart usually rules over head for me so will probably end up waiting for a 135R to come up for sale - if anyone has one that you are considering selling - please get in touch.
  5. The boot on the Evora isnt big enough unfortunately plus I dont want to sell the Mustang - I like it
  6. Very nice - I had one of these for 5 years and loved it. The reason that it feels slow is because its so refined. I put a Larini sports exhaust on mine along with high flow cats. Not only did it make it sound amazing, it does wake the car up and make it feel an awful lot faster. I assume that you have already removed fuse 22?
  7. So I have been Lotusless for over a year now and hence I need to get back in one but just cant decide which to go for. I sold the exige 350 last year when my daughter was born and replaced it with a new V8 Mustang as it has back seats and a big boot so is practical enough for when I need to take her to nursery etc but still good fun when I am in the car on my own. I therefore cannot sell this and get another exige so the plan is to keep it and buy another car to go with it and I thought an elise would be ideal. The question is which one? My first lotus was an elise S1 160 so ive been there done that. I had always wanted a 135R but they are so rare these days and will have a 16 year old K series so be risky. My budget is £20k max and for that you can get a 11R but this will also be fairly old now as £20k only buys 2004 / 05 cars. The other option is an early S3 but these have the 1.6 engine and I cant help but think that given what I am used to, this wont be anywhere near quick enough for me. So the 135R is a car ive always wanted but I may be waiting a while for one to come along and it is likely to be unreliable and expensive to run. The 111R will be an early one meaning that again it will probably be fairly expensive to run / tax etc and I would need to spend a bit to change the cam change point to make it nicer to drive. The S3 will be significantly newer and cost a fraction to run of the other two but I am likely to get bored of it very quickly. Whilst it is a nice position to be in, I just can't decide which to go for - any advice would be welcomed. Thanks.

    I have now sold my exige so no longer have a need for the cover. It is a Lotus waterproof (but breathable) outdoor cover in as new condition as has only been used a couple of times.

    Due to the arrival of our first child and subsequent lack of use and the need for a car with 4 seats and a boot, I have reluctantly decided to sell my Exige S V6. The car is a 63 plate with just 11k miles on the clock and has full Lotus service history with the last service carried out in December by Lotus Silverstone. It has the premium pack, sports pack and race pack plus colour coded side pods and brake calipers and air-con and rear parking sensors. It also has the soft top conversion although I have not yet purchased a soft top for it. The front end, rear quarters and wing mirrors are fitted with Ventureshield and so the paintwork is immaculate. It also had a pair of new Pirellis fitted to the rear just 2k miles ago. It also has rear parking sensors and air-con. The car is ridiculously quick and in my opinion looks much nicer than the newer exige variants (sport 350 and 380) which have all of the matt black parts rather than nice colour coded ones as mine has.
