I just went to do weekly grocery shopping and took the car I have trouble getting into, anyway, when I got home, getting out of the car my foot got caught and I fell backwards and landed headfirst on the road, just as a twit on a scooter came around the corner he didn't even see me. I think he ran over my hair.

And I have a crashing headache.:bang:

Touring? Does that mean it has a tow bar!?

Just got a runabout* now, seeing as I was doing 20-30k miles for a few years until benched recently. Had an Exige (mk1) after the Elise, then a Cerbera, then realised I was wasting far too much money on cars. So wasted it all on other stuff instead.

You don't have to wait for >8000rpm for vtec, it kicks in about 6000 rpm.

You can't compare the s2000 engine to the old rover k series unit that was in the elise. Even though the s2000 doesnt have bags of torque it has more than a rover powered elise (153 compared to 121) even at low revs. Plus the rover runs out of puff at a dismal 5500 revs with 118bhp. The light weight would mean the elise would probably lead to 20mph but after that it would be mullered.

Real world tests I've conducted myself (in the Exige, which had a VHPD 190bhp engine and close ratio gear box) proved otherwise. :moon:

Apples and Oranges really.You have to rev the engine for max power so it's not really suited to traffic light grand prix unless you have a large empty road in front of you. The elise is good at short burst of power to low speeds a bit like a Toyota MR2, which is faster than a porsche Boxster to 30 after 30 it's useless performance wise.

The Elise had a poor engine in Rover form, now it has an OK one in the Toyota form, still poorer than than the Honda Vtec, I've had a toyota VVC no comparison. The honda is tricky to get max performance from start in built up spaces so most people don't bother, before you know it you're doing 70mph. It's forte is twisty country roads, 50 - 70 mph or doing 100 plus on a track.

I don't know much about the Exige but I expect it isn't rover powered!

PAH

LOTUS = Lots Of Trouble Usually Serious

The Elise and its variants, basically everything Lotus have produced since then, seeing as the new Esprit and other models are always years away, are remarkably reliable. Main issue is the head gasket on the rover engines.

Had no real problems with either the Elise or Exige, despite putting lots of miles on both.

I like the power and drivability of the 350z with it being rear wheel drive, but the strange design of the boot is a bit off-putting.

A contractor friend had one and all he had from stopping his shopping flying around and twatting him on the head was a little net.

The Exige S1 I had was. Rover k-series VHPD (Very High Performance Derivative). Overall I think the close ratio gear box made the most difference though.

Never really considered the newer Elises and Exiges. Don't much like the slatted styling, and was always lusting after the M250 that the swines teased us with but never put into production. They seem to be doing the same with the new Esprit. Every time I check, it's slipped back another year.

It's an import so costing me just under £12,000. Don't know for sure what the tax situation is yet but a lot of imports get classified as PLG ( £180/year). Being a 54 plate it should be £215 a year not the new £300/400 a year.

I suppose if you measure a car by how good it is at beating the local chavs away from the lights, then yes I agree completely: don't buy an S2000.

I might well get an Elise sooner or later. It's really the only other car that appeals, and hopefully now they have real engines it might be okay. The Rover ones I test drove last time around were awful.

Still ridiculously overpriced though.

Pretty was your word, I think they need to be attractive in design, I wasn't completely agreeing with pretty, but I couldn't be arsed changing it.

No, I don't have multiple personalities, I have Complex PTSD are you trying to be mean?

You said you don't like ugly cars and claim a sports car has to be pretty. Have you got multiple personalities?


You would make a good politician, "I wasn't lying I was economical with the actuality"


I can hardly believe I used to think you were one of the gentler, sweeter men on this board.

Thanks Brillo. I don't think I want to risk it, the world doesn't need anyone else as forked up as me.

At least you are better off than me - and I have 3 kids. poor little darlings...

I would rather not argue with you at all.

If you say things like 'women only care about the colour' - or attack SA about her weight, I will probably respond unfavourably.

I suppose if you measure a car by how good it is at beating the local chavs away from the lights,


It's not the chavs, it's the sponge and bucket merchants. 0-60 before they can say "oi, where's me money!".

It's complex PTSD, slightly different.

Not a car accident.

Crikey, I did a Google on complex PTSD (http://www.ncptsd.va.gov/ncmain/ncdocs/fact_shts/fs_complex_ptsd.html) and it seems the primary cause is a prolonged period (months to years) of total control by another.

Quoting from that article "The other criteria are symptoms that tend to result from chronic victimization".

But how do you know she was your real mum? She might have been faking it.

(I'm close to coming up with something funny, but can't quite get there. I'm thinking of the Essex girl joke where the doctor says she's pregnant and she's shocked & surprised and asks "But who is the mother?")
