Good evening all,

Long time "lurker" on this fantastic site and thought it about time I say hello and introduce myself.

Previously attracted to the more modern Lotus' as my wife and I have previously owned (no longer :( ) S2 Elise's, however, during another "toy" purchase a few years ago, the seller at the time took me out in his S4 Sprint, the rest as they say is history and I was smitten...

Anyhow, fast forward to present day and we purchased a S4 sprint conversion in April 2015 and we are absolutely delighted with the car. Not many opportunities to use the car last year due to work and family commitments however, hoping to get out and enjoy the car this year!

Anyhow enough of my rambling and apologies in advance for all the silly questions I may ask in the future... :lol:

Welcome! There's quite an active Club Lotus group in and around South Devon. Meets move around in the summer, but the main meeting place otherwise is at the Cardinals Hat, just north of Saltash in Cornwall. Might see you around?
