Re: Newbie - Exige S Bury, Lancs

Nice one Jordan, lovely car!

Will's a top bloke, bought my current lotus off him last year. Train down and plenty of smiles per mile driving back! :D

Re: Car SOS at Chris Neil today

Saw that Esprit on blocks when I popped in on Wednesday. Also saw an S3 exige at the back of a car park with a very familiar number plate on it.... Ade?

Sorry to hear that Dave. There’s a LOT day in the summer at Croft (joint with MGs on track). I was thinking of doing it if you want to join me?

Re: Newbie shopping round for insurance!

Cheers guys, hopefully see you all on a Norlog meet/run in the not too distant future (ie as soon as I can negotiate time away from the family :) )

Yes, the Hangar 111 upgrade. Apparently, I get a discount if I want to take it to 460 as well! :driving:

Re: Newbie shopping round for insurance!

Got her home late last night after picking her up from Will B and driving her the 180 miles back. It’s been 9 years and I genuinely forgot how beautifully raw these cars are. Got in the Audi afterwards and it felt like driving a jelly on wheels. She needs a good wash before I get some better photos ...

Chris Neil’s are quoting £700 + VAT for replacement 🤔 Tough call, might just flip a coin 😁

Re: Newbie shopping round for insurance!

Cheers guys :Friends: Got a few quotes and REIS seem to be coming out on top for what I want. They've offered me windscreen cover (road only) at an extra £112pa. I remember with the elise I think the windscreen was a clam off job. What do you reckon? Is adding this to my cover worth the (approx. 15%...

Re: Newbie shopping round for insurance!

Thanks for the recommendations gents, I’ll definitely give those 2 a call.

It’s been a while Dave, sold the 111s in 2010. Looking forward to getting on track again and seeing a few of you guys on the odd norlog meet :D :driving:

Re: S1 160 Vs 111s

There's plenty of 111s's and a 160s on PH for under £12K. One 111s only has 31K on the clock as well!! (I'd imagine the 160 has a tad more tho ). Pricing of 111s has gone a bit silly IMHO mainly down to demand from abroad but I can see that dieing off a bit in future (whether it'll be enough to depr...

Re: S1 160 Vs 111s

Know what you mean but I think it's because I always picture a 160 in scandal green Not to every ones taste but personally I love that colour. I've driven a standard S1, B&C 140 and a 111s but never a 160 (had a couple of passenger rides round tracks tho). Would definitely need a close ratio box...

S1 160 Vs 111s

Hi all, Hope all is well in the land of Norlog! Desperate to get back in an S1 Elise. Would love a honda'd one and kill for a 340R but budget is only 11 - 12K. Second car, limited mileage - sunny weekends and track days . Arguments of driver skill aside really need more power than a standard K. Is a...
