Re: Stay Healthy

Nice one Dave, had to sell my pool table a few years ago due to house move. One thing which will be getting some use over the coming weeks is the da polisher! :D Might as well catch up on some of the jobs I've been meaning to do for a while.. I've just sorned my Lotus again for April, never thought ...

Re: Searching for my first Elise- 1.6 a good bet?

They all sell at the right price, 1.6 included and there's no better car to have money tied up in, in terms of depreciation. This makes running costs overall very low, regardless of model (well apart from the V6's!) I think the lower powered ones can be more rewarding to drive as you need to put mor...

Re: Introductions!

Hello all, After 26 years on the 'Other' side (Caterham 7 SV Roadsport ) I have finally jumped and now have an Elise 220 in my life. Missing the 7 but hoping to use the Elise much more, it has doors after all. Loads of questions as I am a newbie so please be patient. Hope to see others on the roads...

The car looked great especially after a little tweaking by Mercers motors! :Yahoo: Cheers pal! In two minds about the spoiler now after so many positive comments at the weekend.

Re: New car news :)

Had the first proper drive in daylight last night on my favourite local roads, it certainly takes a lot less effort to get up to speed than my old one, so definitely need to keep an eye on the speedo a bit more! The ride is so much better and the chassis much more composed than the Elise at speed, s...

Re: New car news :)

Great that it fits in the garage. Do you need to jump out from the seat over the bonnet ;). Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh. It’s a lovely colour combination with the red leather. It's tight alright but once in the width in the middle is the same as the Elise, so no Dukes of Hazard antics...

Thanks! It had to be a quick sale as he'd already accepted a px price and the new car was due tomorrow, so it was good deal for both of us - he got a bit more than px and I got a very competitively priced car! I collected it tonight! First drive for me too, it's mega :D Back home now and relieved it...

I'm sure those who were at the South meet yesterday will be as surprised as I am on this, given all my moaning of the lack of cars on the market and how I was going to be waiting for some time (if not forever!) for the exact model/colour/spec that I wanted! Well, what an unexpected turn..!! During m...

Re: Back in the fold!

Lovely car. I was watching that one for a while myself but decided a Cup was a bit wasted on me as I've no intention of tracking one. Really does look a belter though so I'm kicking myself a bit now after seeing your pics! Nice one! :Ok2:

Meanwhile, my hunt continues..

I think it’s stunning, just needs a highly tuned multi cylinder engine (in fact any engine!) and it’d be perfect!

Re: Hi from Poulton-le-Fylde

My late wife was a petrolhead. I bought her an AX 1.5D to practice for her test in. Literally the week she passed, she chopped it in for an MX-5. Then after a few years she decided that was too slow, and got a 350Z. When it came time to change that, she bought the Z4M. After she died, I kept it for...

Welcome back! I saw your posts on Seloc and was following with interest as I'm at a similar crossroads with my 111R. Look forward to seeing pics of the retrim. As an aside I've been lusting after a Z4MC for years, in fact it was a toss up between that, a Z3MC and my 111R years ago when I chose the L...

That's a great choice Dave, Spyder is a proper thing with all the best bits and a superb (proper Porsche) engine :D

Pretty rare too so should hold its value well. :Ok2:

Always enjoyed trying to keep up with the blue beast Dave so it's a real shame you're considering the dark side.
