Welcome back from another defector! Well done, I miss my Lotus and think it'll possibly not be too long before I have another, Porsche is far too civilised :oops:

Was browsing Lotus for sale yesterday the 20th anniversaries in yellow or blue looked ace :thumbsup
Mind you so did the S2 190 Honda SC but I don't need a SC

In a similar boat at moment, mine is proving expensive to keep running and not quite the same fun factor, just working on when it is worth enough to jump back into the Lotus I want for no extra money, Porsche is a bit in demand so the Lotus pot is increasing therefore so can the Lotus I want and need :)

20th anniversary don't match the money pot, but the pot passed my previous 111s equivalent a while back, now around earlyish SC or early Evora or maybe a very mint, perfect, one of a kind S1 with cash to spare from our resident wheeler dealer :wink:

always had a Boxster on my bucket list. Test drove a couple with view to buying but didn't. Based on comments on here (although we are mainly biased) I won't bother .

I remember wanting a white boxster the sales man just laughed and said its wrong colour then I struggled to get settled in seat 6'3 and not a slight build then sales man said to a sports car you have to compromise

Climbed back in S1 and drove home with no driving position compromise

20th has A large ish lift in power from my old S1 so will be fun abusing the extra HP but have a bad feeling about points and fines

Welcome back!

How are you finding the 20th anniversary? I have one in classic silver supplied new from Murrays. I was there today having a 2bular exhaust fitted.

I am not sure the engine is extremely civilised but have yet to really stretch it
For me it's all about corners and it feels very familiar handling wise
Just need to remember an extra 100 horses under right foot
Assume you are getting exhaust due to lack of drama with Toyota unit
