I prefer doing something completely irresponsible, yet fabulously fun to something rational yet boring.

at this point, I really just need to find a local one I can sit in and drive around real quick to make sure I'm comfortable in one.. and I'm about ready to go

I found a few I like.. my only big issue is that they're not particularly close by, which makes checking it over a bit of a challenge

since Lotus didn't make that many Esprit, finding an idea one locally is a time consuming if not serendipitous process. It may be easier for you to pay for a Pre Purchase Inspection for a car that's not local.

Have you read through Lotus Esprit World's buying/maintaining section?
Buying an Esprit

Good luck!

no, I'd missed that one (though I have read through the esprit fact file). Thanks!
