  1. Cheers for the replies folks. I went back to adrian flux in the end and insured with Aegis. £249, 3k miles per year, all mods declared, and including an excess return policy thrown in. quick and efficient on the phone and emails pinging through within minutes. Although as above, I am old, and bar a 4 yrs old sp30 and a 5 yr old no fault claim and lots of protected no claims i think i am pretty low risk for them
  2. Morning all. Its the annual 3 hours on the pc and phone time looking for new cover for the car. 2006 exige - 4k miles per year (managed 457 last year, but they often dont quote anything less!) Few mods, suspension, ecu upgrade, arbs, baffled sump etc. cheers Richbk
  3. and lucky they can concentrate on defending it next season, and concentrating on winning the europa cup next year too cant believe they missed out on champions league on last weekend again , but might be a blessing in disguise...

    Isle of Mann

    Afternoon all. has anyone ever taken there lotus fo the IOM? I will be visiting this year to see my Godson who is just starting a new job as a helicopter pilot on the island and trying to work out of the ferry price is worth it over sleazy jet to have use of the car over there ?? cheers rich
  5. Cars looking good, the sunshine at the weekend had lots of folks out with the 2 buckets and polish..... That camper is going to take a bit of t cut though
  6. Ooops I appear to have logged onto the Jag forum in error 😂.
  7. Where are you based Nick ? I know current circumstances don’t allow but if you haven’t purchased by the time lockdown is released you should come along to a local meet where all types , ages and configurations are present . I am sure the owners would be happy to let you try out the different seats . Your height and size aren’t prohibitive. I am 6 1 and around 12 1/2 stone and sit 2 clicks from the back in my car so I don’t think reclining or moving the seat further back will solve the issue ..... richard
  8. Thats a precision cut, perfect length overbraided sleeve i am sure.....just probably on the wrong hose !!. Yes as said the clip is holding the hose fine, its a cleaner fit just placed over the hose rather than trying to clip the sleeve too. You could add a wrap of heat resistant black tape to the ends of the sleeve if you want to ensure it remains in situ over time.

    Shocks

    tyres / brakes / suspension - all worth stretching the budget on these cars. can make a massive difference to performance and enjoyment along with a good and regular Geo check / set up
  10. As a true reflection of 2020, are we having 9 months of photos of cars tucked away in garages and 3 months of shots out in the Country side with social distancing ??
  11. cheers guys. will be sure to give them a call and the track day was good, had a great day with the car, but was a little unnerved by the fact that the caterham acadamy and a couple of full on professional race teams with telemetry, stacks of tyres etc etc where flying around the track....I thought thats what test days were for ?!
  12. Hi Andy thx for the info, all sorted £148. Still expensive but way better price than a flux and a nice chap Justin to deal with on the phone
  13. Hi dobbo trackday is with MSV full day at donungton insurance is with flux direct , as broker company is Agias I think. 15 yrs no claims , 3k miles per year , not got agreed valuation , excess £400 and alas no track says
  14. Sorry to see you and the cars leaving MLOC for now Drage, but I am sure you will be back . have the cars stayed in the UK ? Good luck with the home move, remember the old saying , you can sleep in a car , but you can’t drive a house 😏. don’t be a stranger on the forum richbk
  15. Evening all . i am doing a track day at Donington on Monday and have discovered I dropped track insurance off my policy in 2018 as I hadn’t done 1 the previous year . My annual policy is £296 this year so I was a little shocked to find Adrian flux could only offer me a 1 day policy at £213 for 1 DAY !. can anyone recommend a better priced company to cover me ?? And almost as importantly is anyone else here booked for Monday, would be nice to see some familiar faces.
