  1. We also need to find a location..... Browsing Google maps there's a large car park with a Starbucks, Pub, ATM, Petrol station and burger king here - Shrewsbury SY4 3EQ It's just outside Shrewsbury, open to other suggestions
  2. I can make most of the dates above apart from 23rd & 24th March and 20th & 21st April......
  3. Agree, Shrewsbury area will suit us all
  4. That's 6 and counting..... Now we need to arrange a meeting location and date, preferably central to all with a car park and refreshments πŸ‘
  5. That makes 4 of us, Enough for a mini meet...... Open to suggestions around the Shrewsbury area
  6. I'm in Telford so not a million miles away, Would be happy to meet up especially if we can get a couple more local Lotus owners involved
  7. I have the image used on the motorsport decals...... how large do you need it as I (my wife) can cut them in vinyl too
  8. No problem, sorry I missed you, I got there around 2pm and as you said it was rammed, some nice cars and bikes there including a couple of hot rods, cafe racer bikes and some old yank cars along with a few too many boring BMW's and alike.
  9. What time you aiming to be there at ?
  10. Weather is looking good for Saturday so might take a drive to see what it’s all about.
  11. As Kieran as said, The LDC meets the second Sunday every month, there's always a good mix of cars....... http://lotusdriversclubonline.org.uk/topic/1766-west-midlands-area-1-hilltop-farm-shop-and-cafe-fosse-way/

    Winter work.

    Reading all this makes me envious..... I miss working on / upgrading my S1 and don't want to start down that slippery slope with the current Elise yet !
  13. Another vote for Option 1 here having had first hand experience of their work πŸ‘
  14. Got mine too...... Thank you
  15. Great news Martin, Definitely want to do a few rounds next year..... Who do I contact to register ?
  16. Welcome to MLOC and a that's great looking Elise You have a few options close to the Nottingham area and listed below in no specific order - Central Lotus in Nottingham - Full Lotus dealership and gets good feedback, dealer prices thou. PJS Sports Cars in Burton - Privately owned and an approved Lotus service centre, I've had 1st hand experience and can highly recommend. UNIT 4 in Burton (or better known as Gav's on MLOC) Gets great feedback from the MLOC and wider community. I'm sure others will be along shortly with further input. Andy.
  17. Welcome to MLOC Daz, Great looking car
  18. Nice one..... Be good to catch up Alex
  19. Dan, 100% the 220 versions are charge-cooled, ref below from Lotus website for Elise 220 Sport Andy. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION AND CHASSIS All alloy,1.8 litre DOHC 4 cylinder , dual VVT-i, 16 valve with chargecooler supercharger Standard https://www.lotuscars.com/elise-sport-220
  20. Hello Dan, I've also previously owned an S2 Exige S260 with the 2ZZ engine but currently have an S2/3 Elise S Cup (220) with the 2ZR engine, Both are different mainly down to the power delivery and rev range. The Exige S260 probably has more character and all hell breaks loose when the power band kicks in just below 5K rpm right up to 8K where as the Elise with 220 2ZR has a more linear power delivery from below 3K rpm through to 7K. Which one is better, I'm not sure..... Both have pro's and cons. The power delivery of the Elise is definitely more usable and requires less gear changes on track but as said lacks the character and the explosiveness of the 2ZZ. In regards heat soak, I definitely experienced this 1st hand with the Exige at Le Mans and few years back but had no such issues with the Elise this year at Le Mans in 35c temperatures, This is due to the Elise being charge-cooled. Also, 2ZR has more torque Andy. PS - There's a few of us on track at Donny on 29th Oct, your welcome to a PAX lap in mine and I'm sure there will be a Exige S that someone will be happy to take you out in.
  21. Myself and Martin are booked πŸ‘

    off to bed..

    I put a front splinter on my S1 that made the car feel more planted at speed and increased the front grip on higher speed corners, I noticed this after it fell off at Oulton, car was definitely a little more skittish. At Le Mans this year I could get much higher speed going through turn 1 (Dunlop curve) in my cup that I could in my S2 Exige, Martin R commented how much more planted the car was compared to his S2. @ndy
