Re: Rumours: Lotus Elan might come back to fight the Porsche Boxster

When i test drove an Evora with Ian (May last year?) he said that he had been to the factory and when he mentioned upcoming cars and the Elan as a name he was told "Watch this space".
New Evora due first AFAIK (2020?)

Re: Fifth Gear S1 feature

So, they say at the end that a new Elise is coming in 2020, based on the existing structure..... Another facelift, or will it be an s1 to s2 type of redesign...? I think the s3 is just an s2 with the edges smoothed off... everything else looks the same. When i was speaking to the new rep at an even...

Re: Six months on

While i remember - if anyone knows (or knows where i can find out) what tyre pressures i'd want to run the car on for trackdays it would be great thanks.

Six months on

So some people are looking for info - here we go. Fed up with the seat on the Elise creaking (and seeing an Exige at 121K in Murray's/Leven) and having some funds available from a pension i went looking about. Tried Aberdeen Porsche and they couldn't have been less interested if they had tried (i pr...

Special Event?

Anyone else get an invite to a "Special Event" at Leven (2nd-4th August i think) with admission by ticket only and apparently big discounts being offered?

Re: CUP 220 - S CUP or Exige v6

Just a little info in to the mix. Before you buy an Elise Cup check the seat - my one moved and creaked continuously and was a total pain (it was one of the major contributing factors to me getting shot of it, believe it or not).The car sat for a month in Murrays/Leven while they sent the rails/seat...

Re: Leven track day at Knockhill Thursday 18th April

Wouldn't make more sense to meet at Tesco Westhill and take the bypass?

I'll take you down if you need a lift Mike.

Re: Leven track day at Knockhill Thursday 18th April

Guys

I didn't manage an invite, but may go down to check out the Caterhams.
Let me know if you're meeting up somewhere (I'd be going down in for the afternoon session).
Cheers
Tony.

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

Sure the 430 Cup moves things on again but you wouldn't find me spending £120k on an Exige. To me that's the heart of the problem. When i saw a £121k price on an Exige the last time i was at Leven i was stunned. You could get a decent spec 911 and have £30k left over - OK it wouldn't look as unusua...

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

They are all brilliant when you're buying, once you have had the car a while they lose interest I guess unless you're a serial buyer. I wasn't and they knew I thought they were useless, or at least they should have. I told them often enough. You're wrong there. I went in to Porsche Aberdeen twice a...

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

On the Porsche note I’m not a huge fan of the standard models but do like a 911 turbo, the 911s need a spoiler and some intakes. As for a Cayman, I’d consider it as long as it’s got 6cyl but Porsche dealer network is crap and give even less fcuk than lotus. I just bought a car from the Porsche Cent...
