She now has the correct seats, newly refurbished from Allon White :thumbsup

Question: am I correct in saying they don't have sunvisors?
Is one of those Lotus Sport windscreen stickers worth having?
Congratulations on the car Ross.

Don't bother with the sun strip. Just get some short lengths of electrical tape and put them across the top of your sunglasses 😎

So after all these years (I think around 20!) it would seem that I've bought a Lotus :lol:
Liking the suggestion it just mysteriously happened rather than you sorted !!

Looks good

Well Ian I was also enquiring about an R500 Caterham which a deposit was taken on, and then this came up. Series 1 Sport 160 at the right price and pretty much what I'd envisaged how I'd like an S1 - mechanically very good (I hope! 🙈🙏) but far from a garage queen.

Pretty much like my Alfa in other words, useable without worrying about stone chips etc.

I think they'll look great next to each other in my new garage 😍

Ross,

Looking great, especially being a 160. Always remember the 160 fondly after a choice between the 111S and 160 at MMC back in 2003.

Remember new garage pic are also welcome too :)

Cheers Ed! A mid December drive home from York might be just that :damnfunny aren't the heaters meant to be a bit rubbish on S1s?

All good here thanks, hope all are well with you and yours!

Looks great and glad to see the number of SE S1’s are on the rise.

Modern classic now, so thought I'd step in before the prices start to rocket :damnfunny

The recent Pistonheads award won't do values any harm either, plus them starting to head over to USA :thumbsup

(Wishful thinking I know :blackeye )
