So I bought a Lotus

Post by colgy » Fri Jul 06, 2018 11:16 pm

Hey guys, just thought I'd say hi. I have just recently chopped in my Cayman S for an Exige; was planning on buying a Sport 350, but somehow ended up convincing myself to buy an S1! :lol: Anyway, loving it so far, although the engine has a few gremlins which I'll need to sort out. I'm Dumbarton based - hope to see a few people around soon :cheers

Ah - Image

That’s the only picture I have at the moment, too busy driving it! Although my enjoyment has been tainted slightly by the fact that I’m scared to overtake, as half the time I get stuck on the wrong side of the road with an engine that refuses to rev...the joys of Lotus ownership I guess...
