  1. Here's the car.. https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/11813656 You will be back one day Matt, maybe in a nice new Emira
  2. Blimey Harry, that is truly EPIC! Don't panic but you've only got four and a bit weeks left to get it finished! EDIT: You should talk to Daveb99, the two of you have lots to talk about The Mustard Yellow Elise S1 Refresh Thread - Page 6 - General Talk - Midlands Lotus Owners Club (MLOC)

    Hi all

    Another WOW for Pete's shiny beauty How do you guys do it? Every time I look at my Cup it seems to be liberally coated in cow shit etc

    Hi all

    Welcome Dave and WOW that is one very shiny car Take note Pete (another MLOC Olive Green Exige owner), look what you can do with a bit of elbow grease As Ray (Elisemadray) says, get yourself booked onto a Lotus in the Peak run, just 5 weeks away and we already have 100 cars booked in. Better still come for the whole weekend and meet loads of the regular suspects at the Friday night BBQ - that's going to be great fun Details here.... https://www.midlandslotus.co.uk/forum/litp/ and our latest video (courtesy of some of very talented MLOC members!) is here...... http
  5. I saw that car advertised Ray, lovely car at a very good price I thought
  6. Beaten to it by Dave, AGAIN
  7. Hope it heals quick Adam, but moving on to the more important stuff would you like me to look after the Exige for a while, just to check it's ok and not seizing up etc?
  8. A young kid (probably about 10ish?) shouted "shit car!" as drove slowly past in my Signature Orange 350 Sport Other than that it's always been very positive

    Emira

    That's the key, if it's a bit smaller than the Evora, drives and looks great + is useable everyday I too will be extremely tempted

    I'm watching with huge interest - it's been a big part of my ridiculous indecision about buying another Exige and if it looks good I could easily be tempted to splash out.
  11. You lot! Just drive the damn thing
  12. Nothing to report from me, but many years ago one of my school friends bought a brand new Cossack 650 motorbike and sidecar - a beautiful looking thing in gloss black, twin cylinder horizontally opposed engine, same as a BMW. He drove it out of the dealership and crashed straight into a tree, smashing one of the cylinder heads clean off. The salesman walked out of the garage and helped him push it the 50 yards back into the workshop
  13. Looking good Is it fair to say that you have gelled with this Exige more than you did with the Evora then Adam?
  14. I have a pair of axle stands you can borrow, I'm near Eyam in the Peak District if that's any good?
  15. Of course I would love to do that sometime 👍
  16. You need to upgrade to a 250 Cup Elise, I will do you a massive favour and take the 410 off you in pex and I won't even ask for too much money!
  17. Nice pics as usual Scott Weather is looking ok for Sunday, chilly first thing but dry and maybe even a hint of sunshine!
  18. OH that's lovely, I'm a real fan of silver wheels I've got a 7" 2bular back box on my 250 - sounds great, I don't think it drones much but to be honest it rarely sits at 3K rpm for any length of time so I couldn't be certain. I would be very surprised if you suffered with any stone chips on the roof, not a vulnerable point IMO. Congratulations on your purchase, don't forget to save the date for Lotus in the Peak (9th, 10th, 11th July) and get it booked as soon as we release the details
  19. Pah, a single solitary biscuit is a travesty of nature and not to be entertained by any right minded person You need a packet of Lotus - nom nom nom nom
  20. many moons ago I had a newish S2 111S with only 20K miles on the clock and as you describe, the suspension was rather 'crashy'. Perfectly ok on minor ripples/bumps/undulations but sounded terrible on potholes etc. During my search for that car I drove 2 or 3 other cars (all 111S) and they all sounded the same. This was a time when they were all pretty low mileage. EDIT: Later I had a 2006 Sports Racer 111R (with Exige S2 shocks/springs) and that was slightly better but still rather crashy. No idea if you can improve matters with different shocks, all I can say is that I think the sus
  21. Ahhh, that's what we need, a happy ending Love that type 25 Cup
  22. Oh my word that is a serious impact, really sad to see but of course a relief that the driver was ok.
  23. Where's that picture come from Scott, have you seen it in the flesh? If you search Google images for 'Plum Crazy Exige' it comes up with the original photos from Oakmere - looks fantastic under their showroom lights. I think it might be the only Exige in Plum Crazy, there was a Plum Crazy Elise (Cup I think?) sold a couple of years ago and a similar colour 'Ultra Violet' Exige 380 sold by Snows about the same time. That one took ages to shift and they reduced the price over and over until it became a real bargain. Be interesting to see how long this one takes to sell, only takes one
  24. Interesting that one Scott - my eyes are sort of magnetically drawn to the bright purple but I'm not sure if I love it or hate it I went to look at a Lotus at Parkway a few years ago, a Chrome Orange 220 Elise. Looked nice but it had suffered a smack up the arse - you could see the repairs inside the boot and the paint was just slightly off. They expressed surprise when I mentioned it but I couldn't help but notice that the car was parked with the damaged corner right next to the wall making it very difficult to spot I know what you mean Ray about the Autumn Gold one, it's a perfectly r
  25. Good luck Dean, it will breeze though I bet Mine's booked in on Thursday, fingers crossed for dry roads as the drive to the MOT garage is fantastic (Nearest garage with suitable ramps, honest!)
