  1. Or for an alternative view, Lotus pulled off a coup of Colin Chapmanesque proportions by sucker punching Opel into producing a sports car that they then trumped with the S2👍 Just saying😉
  2. You lucky lads with cars to drive and polish. My new 250 is in factory eight at Hethel which is final QC before delivery to the dealer. We were due to visit the factory to see it on the line last Thursday but the visit was called off at the 11th hour🙁. I’ve pretty much resigned myself to the fact that it could be quite some time before I actually get my hands on it now.. the sunny weather isn’t helping either. Half an hour from empty Welsh roads and no toy to play with🙄
  3. Here what your up against where unscrupulous sellers are concerned: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575033836&toolid=10001&campid=5337202664&customid=&icep_item=114143130514&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229508&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg Will B, a highly respected dealer has flagged this up on seloc as needing around 3k spending on it. Looks great from the pictures and description🙄
  4. If I was doing a refresh on a 17 year old Elise with 72k on it I’d definitely be changing the dampers, £1500 is optimistic so the car in the o/p would need to be very good to command 14k, and at that age the fact that the suspension has never been touched would get me thinking about other things that may have been overlooked. If you do go and look at it follow the advice above, also check the interior fan works on all 3 settings and runs from hot to cold and windscreen to footwell, (heaters and heater packs are a weak point) and quite costly to fix.
  5. Superb Done lots of those bits myself over the years but great to see it all in pictures. Love the “Lotus position“ pics, I remember fitting a clutch peddle bush some years ago, my back and ribs were bruised for days😆 Yellow S1’s are the business!
  6. £1500 diy I’d say. Check the wishbones are straight👍
  7. Do you intend to do the refresh yourself? You’ll be adding at least £1500 to the cost of the car and at 15.5k there are cars out there with less miles and possibly better history. A totally mint early 02 111s with low miles and full history will be commanding just North of 18k, I know, I sold mine late last year. Hth
  8. Looks good for the money, service only at dealer or lotus independent needs to be looked at as doesn’t say full service history so could be as little as two services. Plate included worth xxx is a load of tosh, I’ll give you tuppence and a jammy dodger for it. It looks a nice car at a good price, check the suspension has been done👍 Good luck

    S2 key

    Do them separately, I recoded a new fob and then the original fob wouldn’t work, so had to follow those instructions with the original and recode that, it’s a bit of a faff but once it’s done you don’t have to do it again.

    S2 key

    Nowhere near I'm afraid, but have sent you a message. 👍

    S2 key

    You’ll need the alarm PIN number to reprogram the fob.

    S2 key

    I thought the S2 key was a Vauxhall part, should be available from any decent key cutting place?
  13. Nothing new in the details but I like the way its done👍. I think its a bit unfair on the K series to be honest, anyone watching would think that they all self destruct within minutes of starting up which simply isn't the case, I'm not sure about his comments regarding the rear subframe rusting either, damaged suspension points are a far worse problem and no mention of those? I enjoyed it though. 7 out of 10
