  1. Can't wait to get it! I haven't even driven it yet, in fact not seen it in the flesh! So bought blind aside from my Dad going to have a look. Power its at 330 on the higher boost map. Engine internals tweaked so can go to 450? Apparently it's been mapped with reducing lag in mind, so turbo spools up nice and early.
  2. So after 4yrs of ownership my 4th Lotus has left my ownership :/ I'm really sad to see it go, was the best all round Lotus I've ever had, so capable on track yet a breeze to drive on the road. And aside from a minor issue it had that the resolution has proved elusive, it was so reliable. So why did I sell the Exige? I needed to free up some cash, mainly because I was a little extravagant on my other car purchase. So I set myself a £10k budget to get a track toy. As I have my Aston I could get something a lot less practical. It also needed to be as quick if not quicker than the Exige. So I was only really looking at Kit Cars to achieve that. So two weeks of looking and I've done my usual, fell for something way over budget! I managed to negotiate a very decent discount but still well over budget. So basically I havent freed up the cash I wanted but boy I'm going to have some fun in this! Planning to get on a decent amount of track days this year, maybe do some sprints. And of course some Sunday morning Peaks runs
  3. Time Left: 2 months and 19 days

    Mak XLR light weight wheels in Toyota fitment. Perfect fit for an S2 Exige, may fit Elise? Shod with Advan A048's with legal tread. Easily enough tread for another track day or two. Wheels are in immaculate condition, no kerbing at all. Would make a great upgrade from the OEM y spokes or to have as a second set of wheels with winter or all season tyres on. Two of them have lost the lotus badge off the centre caps. Caps are still present, just needs a couple of those gel coat stickers from eBay. Ive also got some more semi slick tyres that can be included for the right price. I have 4 tears and 2 fronts. All have at least 3mm of tread. Collection from NN14 (30secs off the A14 in Northamptonshire). Can also arrange Collection from Northampton or Leicester.


  4. NICE!!!!!! Well done
  5. 19th Feb I don't think I can make. Chance I could but won't know until nearer the time. Roll on the summer, I'm determined to get out for more of these. It's a bit of a trek for me now so more likely to pull out if the weather looks rubbish (bit far to go just for a breakfast cobb ) Thanks Dean
  6. Woke up to a glorious sun soaked fresh winters morning closely followed by an urge to take the car for a spin. And then the thought of stuffing a good sausage down my neck..... So to those who are awesome at arranging what I think are one of the best get togethers we do (Dean / Marcus:) ) .......... when are the next ones? And would you mind a non-Lotus (but British) car along?
  7. Nice!!!
  8. No As long as the price reflects the mileage then 23k is nothing
  9. Love that ^^^^^
  10. That's a shame, I'm biting at the bit to go on a morning run in the peaks. I'm on my way down to Cornwall that day though
  11. Good luck buddy
  12. No problems. He will definitely be my first port of call when I need some paintwork doing. Did you get the work done yet?
  13. After speaking to Andy at Central Lotus he recommended the guy in the same building as him for any bodywork, spraying etc. A quick look over and they had some tasty cars in there! It was work on my Aston Martin I needed doing so I wanted to be sure this was going to be a very good effort!! Guy who runs it is called Dan. Anyway booked my car in after getting a very very competitive quote. Told needed the car for a week, called 3 days early to say its ready (first big tick in the box not over promising) Went to collect, picked me up from the station out of hours so I could pick it up on my way home from work. Had done an absolutely great job on the car, very happy. Given a walk around some of the cars they had in and its obvious they take great care and pride in what they do (very tidy for a bodyshop!) They even had Wayne Rooneys ABT Audi Q7 in there!! Anyone looking for a small job or a complete respray you'd do a lot worse than giving these guys a shout. I've only got his mobile number which is 07875 530080.
  14. Love the GTE Evora - makes all the difference, love it
