Re: CUP 220 - S CUP or Exige v6

Totally subjective, but as lovely as the Elise is, its more of less the same formula as the Exige S2.. Same-ish weight, similar 4-cyl engine. Seems like a more up to date iteration of the S2 Exige. Watched one of the Carfection video reviews, and that was his conclusion. Not that it makes it any le...

Re: Ultima

Yup, Dunblane Hydro. £14.95 for an "all you can eat buffet breakfast" :)

Hope nobody was having a quiet sleep in. It was all very loud.

I've bought and sold a couple on eBay and still look there frequently to see if anything interesting pops up.

Re: New puppy.. cute doggie pic content

House seemed slightly empty with only one set of paws padding around. The cunning plan still involves another stripey Great Dane but a brindle pup turning up is one of those things that might happen in a week, a month, or a year. Anyhow there's plenty room so..... Thanks to SE's own Mandy and Mac. M...

Re: New(ish) car .. not really Lotus Content and a long wait..

Some detail pics of my car and of the ITB set-up and the GP4 exhaust. We've done away with the Alfa manifolds completely and have a full custom tubular exhaust fabricated to match the original Stratos GP4 twin exhaust, so no cats whatever and with minimal silencing at the end of the tailpipes. I'll ...

Re: New(ish) car .. not really Lotus Content and a long wait..

An update of sorts... Gawd, this is FrUsTrAtInG!!! So, nearly 2 years on from starting this and paying a deposit it recently seemed like I was 24 months into an 18 month project with no real progress for the past 4 months, no real end in sight and the only thing moving was the upward spiral of poten...

Re: Ultima

Not mine but owned by a guy called Bill who is over in the West.
Think it's an LS3 6.2 litre engine.
There's at least 6 of us up here now. Common as muck really.

Re: Dreaded Clutch Problem (Sport350)

Glad it's over for you. Sounds like a nightmare!

Do you know what now happens to the car? Has the dealer been punished / penalised / (Punished is the wrong word but you know what I mean, has it cost them money for it all to have ended in your favour) #justbeingnosey

Re: Leven track day at Knockhill Thursday 18th April

In that case I'll likely pop over for a nosey as well.
I'll park the Honda somewhere in the shade out of the way ;)

Re: Garage Floors

Carpet squares! I spent ages preparing the floor surface and using the proper garage floor paint when I put the garage up but, like you say, it's great for a couple of years then starts lifting or flaking and goes from looking great to looking shabby really quickly. I got enough heavy duty contact s...

Re: The evora replacement

Looks lovely. In saying that, I'm so much out of the loop re BMW's that I hadn't even realised there was an M2. I'm still back in the M3 / M5 days. Oops!
