Re: Anyone with an S1 111S or Sport 160?

I'm glad that S160 is a duffer. I can stop drooling now.

Re: Anyone with an S1 111S or Sport 160?

I can't see past this beauty at the moment: https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/lotus/elise-s1/lotus-elise-sport-160-2000/9558960 I miss that lumpy idle so much! It pains me to say it, but the 111S is the better car (CR box, VVC torques etc), but for pure character a Scandal S160 is ha...

Re: Blairgowrie Classic Car Tour 2019 - 28th April

If anyone can display an interesting car in Blairgowrie, the organisers are going to arrange a visit to Morris Leslie’s car collection at a later date as a thank you. (some 650 cars and some flying things!)

If that swings it for you, let me know and I'll pass your details along.

Re: Blairgowrie Classic Car Tour 2019 - 28th April

I'm assured we'd be very welcome if we put a group together, despite the classic focus. It looks like a nice day out, if a bit more relaxed than our usual sort of thing. I'll try to sort something for next year... my dad's offered bacon rolls and coffee at his gaff in Blairgowrie, so that could be a...

Re: Blairgowrie Classic Car Tour 2019 - 28th April

James “birthday weekend”. He might appreciate a day out amongst some nice hardware. But he says we are only coming if you bring the 2-11 [emoji41] I don't think I'll be there. There's nothing in the diary, but every other weekend around it is rammed, and I'll probably want a weekend off. Might get ...

Blairgowrie Classic Car Tour 2019 - 28th April

This might be a nice day out if anyone is at a loose end. Same weekend as the SE Spring Run though... http://blairgowrieclassiccartour.co.uk/ The run/dinner itself is fully subscribed for this year, and the sedate pace and classic focus might not suit the majority of us, but the organisers have pass...

Re: Long shot - car to Craig at CMC

So, it's all Mike's fault for posting a link to Chrissy's website, I spotted the bit that says he does remapping... 1 hour later I've got some different 1s and 0s and a load more torque. Chrissy was great. Fitted me in at lunchtime in my break, and the car definitely feels quicker on the drive back....

Re: Long shot - car to Craig at CMC

Give Chrissy Gibbs at CGE garage in Kirkhill Ind Est a call. Mate of mine and is a good mechanic, he'll sort you out. Ah, that's good to hear an endorsement, Mike. I've used CGE once a while ago for tyre fitting (via black circles I think) and would definitely go back again for other stuff. The tyr...

Re: Child seats to fit Lotus harness hole seats

The harnesses just about worked with the cheapo halfords booster, but I think boosters are from 15kg. It wasn't a great fit, but it worked just well enough to let our eldest have a short ride in the yellow car. The problem with the 2-11 is that if they sit high enough to see out then they're in the ...

Re: Child seats to fit Lotus harness hole seats

I went to Halfords and tried a few. They don't mind you taking them out to the car park to trial fit. Their own brand cheapest booster fits, but not much else did.

Re: Takata Airbag recall

Subaru were very good about this. I got lots of communication from them outlining the issue, then saying they'd be back in touch when it was my turn for a repair, then an invitation to book in for repair locally, which I did. The dealer gave me a BRZ to play with while they did the repair. That was ...
