  1. Hi Dave, yes all good thanks. I'm glad you spotted the car and have shed light on the shed. I would have been mortified if someone in MLOC had ended up with it. Looking at previous auctions, it appears as you suggest that the car sold to the current owner through The Market in September 2019. The car sounds like it should been written off. Hopefully there are enough cues in the listing, along with the quick turnaround following change in ownership, for people to smell a rat. Thanks again for pointing it out.
  2. I recently used this place to sell my late father's TriumphTR4 V8. They were excellent and now have a mustard yellow S1 with 73k and an estimate of Β£9k - Β£12k in an online 7day auction which I thought may be of interest if someone was after a project.. https://themarket.co.uk/listings/lotus/elise-s1/9ee818f5-d3a3-4a1e-900e-8250c3e121e0?status=live
  3. Congratulations, that is stunning. Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh πŸ‘
  4. Looks mega. Enjoy 😎
  5. I can see it now. Stunning πŸ‘
  6. Awesome πŸ‘Œ, congratulations. I'm not sure if it's just me but I can't see the pic.
  7. Yes, it's a 220 Cup so has splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser, in fact the aero is from the Cup R so is bigger than the aero on the 250 Cup, being referred to a 'big aero' model. Mods wise is has upgraded supercharger pulley, manifold, exhaust, air intake, remap to 265bhp and nitron clubsport suspension. It's awesome fun 😁
  8. Great problem to have 😎 I was in the same situation a few months back when considering my first Lotus. In the end, I went for a white with black pack 2015 Cup 220. In all aspects of my life I tend to prefer the discreet option and so took some time to decide on the Cup. I ruled out the toxic green Cups and still had a very small element of doubt about going for the Cup I purchased but I absolutely love it and quite like the fact there aren't as many Cups around as non Cup cars. My car also came with Komotec ZR265 upgrade purchased by a previous owner and I would be lying if I said that didn't have some sway on the decision. As others have said, it's a personal decision and one that I think is made easier the more cars you see. I'm sure you will make the right decision and I look forward to hearing which way you go πŸ‘
  9. Great drive out to Hathersage this morning for a swim in the open air pool which is fab, heated to 28deg all year. First proper drive out on quiet roads after changing squealing 2 piece disks for EBC turbos so I could properly enjoy the car. What a machine πŸ˜πŸ’¨
  10. This advert is COMPLETED!

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Having recently purchased car, discs removed and for sale as I have changed to one piece EBC turbos because these EP 2 piece were squealing at low speed when bringing car to a stop i.e. traffic lights, speed bumps etc and it was doing my head in. Fronts are 295mm (come with spacers) nearly new and have no lip. Rears are 288m, have a very small lip (around 0.5mm) and look to have had some use. Looking for Β£400.

  11. Thanks for all the nice comments. I will definitely keep an eye out for meets, it will be great to meet up. PJT, I believe the 220 Cup was only made for around a year c 2015 /16 and obviously in relatively limited numbers. I am having an internal debate with myself about justifying purchasing the certificate of provenance from Lotus for Β£82.50 which would confirm build numbers. It's not a big outlay in it's own right but it's on top of recently purchasing the car which was at top of budget and waived through on some rock solid man maths so it may need to go on the Christmas list πŸŽ…πŸŒ²πŸ€£πŸ‘Œ
  12. Thanks lotus111. Nice Evora 😎 I would love to get out on an MLOC Sunday morning run so will certainly keep a look out for the next one.
  13. Good Evening all, glad to have signed up and be getting round to my first post to say Hi having picked my Elise 220 Cup up 4 weeks ago. I previously had a tuned MΓ©gane RS250 (305) as my weekend car for 7yrs which was great but I am totally made up with the Elise, each drive feels like such an occasion! I wanted a car with a bit more exhaust volume so was stoked to find this one which has Komotec ZR265 upgrade and Nitrons which was a bonus. I am in North Notts, nr Mansfield and would love to get out on some drives and meet up with other Lotus owners. Cheers, Rich
