Re: Evija

Wow. Just stunning. From every angle. Loving the porous bodywork. It is so advanced the price tag is irrelevant. Feel really pleased for Lotus and can’t wait to see what comes from this in terms of more affordable road cars. Hats off to you Hethel chaps.

Re: Edinburgh flash floods

Ach the original link is no longer working. It showed a BMW with water up to its headlights on the corner outside Leven Lotus. I reckon it would be up to the windows of an Elise. This story has a few images of the approach road to the garage. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/edinburg...

Who sold their yellow S1 recently?

Just back from a 700+ mile road trip to North Wales in the Evora. Car was brilliant. Called into Anglesey Circuit for a look but it was shut! On lock-down for filming of 5th Gear. Also stopped overnight at Conwy. There is a tv programme on Quest called Salvage Hunters I quite like so visited the guy...

Re: How do you consume F1?

I managed to catch up with the All4 coverage before it expired. I thought the coverage was excellent and C4 have made an excellent show despite the restrictions. Adding both Stephano Domenicali and Billy Monger to the line has kept it fresh too. Watched the French GP highlights this evening. What a...

Great insight there, Dickson. Value of that Autosport just shot up a bit eh ;-) Found it.

Re: Niki Lauda - loss of a legend

Had the pleasure of meeting and chatting to him back in 2007. Spotted him in the Emirates lounge in Dubai when awaiting my connecting flight to Australia to go to the F1 GP. Had an Autosport on me and it had an article on Niki so wandered over and asked him to sign it. Slight apprehension as he had ...

Re: 205 45 17 non XL tyres

Er. Am I missing something here. Nankang, Toyo, Uniroyal. £45-£75. Have used all 3 brands. Currently have Uniroyal RainSport 3 on the TT.

Re: 205 45 17 non XL tyres

Cheers for that filter, that was useful as brings results down from 8 pages to 2. That must have been the site I was on previously as has ‘Mini’ next to the Hankook V12s. Of the 34 results, 24 are run flats so 10 left, or 7 in reality due to manufacturer named duplicates. For anyone even vaguely int...

Re: 205 45 17 non XL tyres

What are your reasons for not wanting an XL tyre? I'm principally moving away from run flats to improve ride and handling - but... Did your JCW come with runflats?! My R56 S didn’t and the original tyres are non XL hence looking for a like for like changeover. Can’t find the tyre website I was on l...

Re: Lotus marque has disappeared from Autotrader

Strange indeed. Haven’t used the desktop website for years as agree it is clunky. I find the same with PH. Give the Autotrader app a go, I find it really quick, easy and more flexible. :thumbsup
