How's this looking Angel? [MENTION=1272]Fernandez[/MENTION]
Not done much tbh with it being winter. Put a new quick release steering wheel on. It's a hard car to live with in winter when you have to de-ice the inside of the car. Lol having said that I still love the buzz of driving it.

I've been looking at a multitude of options including engine conversions. The Honda is the popular choice but all in your looking at the thick end of 10k and I don't really want to spend that much on making it go quicker tbh. Another other engine option is the Ford Duratec from the Fiesta ST, these seem to be around half so about the same ballpark as the Clio conversion.

Also been looking at body work. Initially before I bought one I wanted a full carbon body but now seeing how many stone chips I get that ain't happening. I have been looking at the Revozsport GT3 kit and different paint options, candy apple red is my current favorite but as you can see from the picture below it is a tasty bit of kit.

The car will be getting a large rear wing, front splitter and some exterior carbon in the new year. Just not sure how far I want to go with it to be honest as I keep looking at Cayman's.

That kit looks good.

In all honesty, if your looking at other cars, I wouldn't plowing money into the Lotus, just itch the scratch with it and enjoy it as it is with just a few minor mods. If you think you'd be selling it in the near future I wouldn't put your own 'stamp' on it, could potentially make it harder to sell.

I was looking at Cayman's a while ago, brilliant cars and so much value for money. Which would be your choice; 2.8 or 3.2?
