I’m going to do something of a Esprit restoration (great build thread George ) although I’m going to keep the car as stock as possible…but with a few exceptions PRRT stuff like that. With regards the Koni Dampers, I gather they can’t be rebuilt, so what are my alternatives bearing in mind I’d like it kept as stock as possible?
I know should do a search but what fun would that be!
Ben you actually get it!!! It wont go on track, it won’t go miles and miles it’ll just be fun and as completely stock an investment. I’m having Stephen do the engine rebuild which he’ll honour a warranty and the other jobs I’ll team up with some MLOCers and John S and do the rest. Lol winthattt I heard the yips on the way home today, it did bring a smile to my face. There can’t be that many stock examples of the S1 left here or abroad and I figure most if not all may benefit from an engine rebuild. Making it as good as new, well that’s just a bit of elbow grease and money that will mostly likely be returned.
Bollox to “investment” - just use & really enjoy the friggin thing. OEM dampers are now 12-13 years old so will need replacing now/shortly. OEM Ecu is awful & does the K Series engine no favours whatsover. Fit verniers & Emerald & stop messing about.
However, drive it everyday for a few weeks before you touch anything!!!
Coin-cours! My arse!
Never mind the investment value.
Now you’ve got one you’ll never want to sell.
Pesky’s dead right, use it. I never planned to take mine on track but it is such fun. I hoped never to take it out on a rainy day Or in winter on salty roads but where’s the fun in looking at it sitting in a garage?
I used mine the other day in the absence of any other car and it was a delight.
I’m so chuffed for you Jonny.
