Thanks for the update, although I'm afraid I agree with Campbell.
You both have no taste :mrgreen:

Re: New car with a Honda engine... err, it's a Honda

To be honest I’m usually stuck behind a tractor or a horse or even a pack of cyclists. Sunset is clearly when everyone else is at home.

Re: New car with a Honda engine... err, it's a Honda

The arch is at the side entrance to the houses at Letham Grange golf course, just off the wee road leading down from Coliston and yes, entrance to Crombie country park. The nice long straight road is the 1st thing I come to when leaving the house heading to Dundee. Sometimes living in the sticks is ...

Re: New car with a Honda engine... err, it's a Honda

I still really like it** ** Confession time: I've only done about 3k miles in it and about 800 of them were in a single round trip down south to see my Stratos build. :oops: But... Yeah, over on the Civic Type R forums there are links to every single review of the car and comparisons with other cars...

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

I got a few more pics yesterday of the gearbox and engine after the rebuild. I also got the bill!!! Yikes!! To be fair, it was sort of in line with what I should have expected based on the quotes at the beginning of it all about 2 years ago but then when you add in the costs of additional strengthen...

I think it looks ace apart from the driving lights.

Can wait to see it rolling around the Angus countryside Jim :thumbsup Poor choice of words for this particular car :lol: I must have missed something Ross :scratch I dont get it ? :) It's funny how many pics there are of them on 2 wheels, no wheels, broken, pranged, in bits, wrapped round trees and...

Re: Dreaded Clutch Problem (Sport350)

:withstupid I keep checking in to see how things are progressing. I'm still amazed a main dealer risks its reputation rather than keep customers happy in a fairly small well informed and lucrative market. Same here. There's not that many Lotus dealers and the product is relatively expensive so you'...

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

I'm not really sure how the final look will go. The rocker covers are away being powdercoated in red and once the ITBs and airbox is on I'm not sure what it will physically look like. It's a weird way of doing things :D

Re: All roads lead to Lotus... or do they?

I liked having my 987 Spyder as a thing. It looked lovely, there's not many of them, I had my head screwed on when I bought it and made a few bob when I sold it. The downside was that it never really felt that special on the road. It was almost more interesting to other people than it was to me. I d...

Re: All roads lead to Lotus... or do they?

Another vote for another Exige from me (ironic since I don't own a Lotus at the moment) but they do seem to give the best of all worlds. I tried the bike engined Westfield and Caterham R300 and enjoyed the novelty but know I wasn't hardcore enough for one really. I'd like to own an Atom just to have...

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

Slow progress, but light at the end of the tunnel. Engine should be delivered to the car builder at the end of this month. Body should be fitted in January. IVA compliant built car for test sometime around March. Conversion to full rally spec and delivery to me in April. Hopefully!! Delays mainly du...
