Esprit buying advice

Post  Paul on Thu Jun 04, 2009 4:55 pm

Hello,
I've just joined Lotus Drivers Club online and would appreciate any advice or comments on buying an Esprit.
Back in the early '80's a owned an Elite and I now want to go back to a Lotus.
I understand from looking at the Internet and talking to experts that the best Esprit's for reliability and quality are the 1990 to 1995 four cylinder models.
I'm fairly practical having maintained the Elite myself - rebuilt engine, new gearbox, new wheel bearings etc, but I don't want these sort of problems on whetever I buy if possible!.

Hello and welcome Paul and thank you also Paul (rocket) for posting the links. There are usually some good buyers guides, tips and what to look when buying, on these forums that specialise in one particular model. In some cases you may find someone who will be willing to meet up with you to look over a particular car with you if they are local. Let us know how you get on in your search for an Esprit and would love to see some photos if or hopefully more like when you make that life changing purchase Very Happy

Happy motoring Very Happy

Thanks NIJ,
I'd like to meet and discuss Esprits and buying one.
I will be attending the meeting on 11th so it will be good to see you there.
I've looked at two and hope to see two more soon.
I know Alcester well as it is my nearest town.
Regards,
Paul.
