Hi everyone,

I am an enthusiastic Lotus admirer, more specifically Esprit admirer (yes, ever since Roger Moore drove the Lotus Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me :)

I have often looked to buy one, but have never really been in a serious position to do something about it - but I am now :)

I am looking for a weekend driver. I can do a bit of repairs myself, but a cam belt change or anything major I would not do myself...

I have been looking around and there seem to be most 4th generation Esprit for sale around the £10-15k mark. I really like the 4th generation look (and 5th generation for that matter)...

Have been looking around for a Buyers Guide or anything like that, but have not been able to find one.

I have already seen a few but this was more out of general interest in the car - I did not do any thorough inspection of the car or anything like that. Also, this was at dealers and would prefer to buy one privately - preferably from an enthusiast.

Any good advice of what to look for and what to expect with a car like this?

Thx in advance for any help,
