Edit: since someone already posted a pic of a Kestrel.

If those pics of the Europa are for real, someone over at Lotus needs to be stabbed in the eye.

And speaking of Castrol.....my dealer uses it. For those of you who have your oil changed at the dealer, what brand are they using?

Took mine to HRM for the first service and they used Castrol, gotta get that stuff out and go to Mobil 1. But I figure with twin oil coolers the Castrol is a cheap flush of the old mineral oil.

All of this for a Hi-jack.....can I be DB cooper and get away with the money??

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!

I'm working on this. I'm worried because we have seven days before the SPEED channel broadcasts the episode about Lotus, and there's already 9 posts on that thread. Can you imagine the fury of posts next Monday evening. It'll be worse than the coming out of the new Europa. BTW, has anyone seen the new Europa?

Headlight goes out, seat belt beep changes pitch
Am I the only one who keeps reading this as:

Headlight goes out, seat belt #@%!$* changes pitch

...and wonders why the seat would move if the bulb burned out?

Well, if the valve stem cap is loose, you'll get worse gas mileage from the increased drag also. ( Windtunnel tested ! )

maybe it should be read as "Headlight goes out on seatbelt and beep pitches a fit"
