    S2 Exige vs Elise 111S

    I doubt you’ll see much difference in performance if anything at all. More horses on the Exige but the weight has a big affect. I went 111s to 111r, these days I’m back in a 111s. Says it all really😉

    Which elise to go for?

    You’ve owned Elise’s previously so you know where they’re at, you simply won’t find a 135r and if you do your budget isn’t enough, unless you go for a shonky one and then you’ll have to spend ££’s on it. Your price point is particularly tricky and that added to the lack of good cars out there for sale really limits your choice. You’ve already discounted S1’s and you state that a 16 year old K will be “risky” I don’t agree, and would have suggested an early 111s(although to find a good car at that price is getting harder to do) but if that’s your opinion it leaves you looking at S2 Toyotas, you might find a 111r for that, but again it will be 05/6 at best and to find a well looked after one under 20k isn’t going to be easy. The 1.6 I had a day with really didn’t float my boat, if it was the first Elise I’d ever driven/owned then it would have been fine to start with, but you really had to thrash the thing all the time to get anything out of it, and of course we’re men and we’re programmed to “bigger is better” I think the 1.6, no matter how good it is would always play on your mind and as you say you’d soon tire of it. Probably just telling you what you already know so not much help I’m afraid. How big is the boot on an Evora?, could flog the mustang??

    Sorry chaps I’m no longer able to make it on the 7th. The fact that I suggested the 7th makes this even more of a pita. See you all at the next one 👍

    Indicator condensation help please

    I had the same on my first S2, I put a small bag of silica into the unit held in place with a dab of silicone, was a bit “ship in a bottle” getting it in there, but it did the trick, I hadn’t drilled any holes in my unit though. A couple of weeks later the bloody tab broke so I then had to fix that🙄

    I visited the place I had in mind yesterday Andy and the car park was rammed🙄, perhaps we’re better off sticking with your original suggestion?.

    Sunday’s are better for me too, but also happy to go with the majority, it’s always difficult to arrange these things as there is always someone who will be disappointed 😞

    I’ll have a look into a venue in Shrewsbury, the one linked above is a service area for the A49, nothing really wrong with it but will be stacked on a Sunday, with 4x4’s and people carriers doing Sunday lunch.

    How Many cars and people are too many for your place Rich? Plenty of pubs with car parks in the area but we need to sort a date first, I’m assuming Sundays would be easiest for people?

    Any meets around Shrewsbury?

    There were a few people on here in and around Shrewsbury, no meets as such.... we’ve had a few meet ups in the past but nothing recently, not too sure just how many are still Lotus owners and who would be up for it. Fwiw, I’m right in the middle of Shrewsbury👍

    GRP GT Rear Lights

    Lotus originally had all 4 lights working on the first S2’s but it failed the type approval tests, something to do with them being separate light units and being too close to each other??. I only have the old type non led lights on my S2 but all 4 work as was originally intended, simple mod on the old style......

    Thinking of selling my S1 111s

    Always sad to see a long time member sell up, all the very best for a long and happy retirement Greg.

    Thinking of selling my S1 111s

    Sorry to hear Greg but sometimes needs must, is it not possible to find somewhere with a driveway so you could keep the car off-road?
