  1. Selling up

    Well that didn't take long. The car has gone off to its new home today. I am a bit sad to see it go, it was a great car to drive, but i cant help thinking it is the right move at this point in time, despite agreeing with pretty much everything that you guys have written above. I'll try not to be a stranger, as this club has been a significant part of the enjoyment i have got from all three of my lotus. And i wont rule out no 4 joining the fray at some point, but its going to be a few years off based on current thinking. Cheers guys Chris
  2. Selling up

    You’re probably both right. The problem is as much as I love it, I have this irrational guilty feeling because I don’t drive it enough. I’ll really miss track days though! I’ve got it advertised so we will see if there is any interest.
  3. Selling up

    You are probably correct, but if its not going to be used, then i need the space. I have tried to convince Mrs L to move to somewhere with a double garage but, alas, to no avail.........
  4. Selling up

    I've had the S1 for a couple of years now, but i think I’m going to look at moving it on. Bit of a shame really as the car is now running great after a few problems in the first 6 months, but i have only managed about 900 miles over the last 12 months and cant see that number increasing much in the next year. Other priorities have taken over with a new job last summer and the ever increasing time demands of a young family. I've also signed up to a number of sporting challenges for 2018 to raise money for Clic Sargent which i can see taking up a fair chunk of my "me time" through this spring and summer (shameless plug - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/christopher-lane5). Plus i need to free up some space to keep my new bike as there is only so long Mrs L will accept it cluttering up the conservatory! So if anyone would be interested in knowing more about a nicely spec'd s1 for fast road / track use then give me a shout. Whatever happens i'm sure i'll stay in touch with the great people of MLOC - working at the airport makes it very easy to pop along for passenger rides at Donington trackdays at the very least! A tough decision to make, as it has been to let go of my previous two lotus, but the time feels right to let the car go. I’m 100% sure I’ll be back at some point in the future! Feel free to let me know why this is a terrible idea!
  5. MOT

    you beat me - I've just had mine done and had only done 946 miles in the last year Although i'm sure there will be others on here that have done less (I hope!)
  6. Windscreen replacement S1 Elise

    I totally agree. The problem is, when the excess is the same wherever you go, it's easy just to go for the most convenient option. But it doesn't help insurance premiums in the wider context.
  7. Windscreen replacement S1 Elise

    Thanks Jonny Having done a bit of ringing around i think i am going to take it to Central Lotus. They will source the new screen and deal with the fitting (which they sub out), and they are only 5 mins around the corner so dead handy. I do feel a bit guilty though as i cant shake the feeling that this is why everyone's insurance premiums go up so much every year - the insurer didn't break stride when i phoned up with the £1,100 quote ?
  8. Has anyone got any recommendations for who to use locally for windscreen replacement on my S1? thanks Chris
