Below is a collection of video clips supplied by LEW users. They include avi, mov and mpeg formats of clips from TV, Video and taken by owners themselves. These will be made available on this page, as long as our Bandwidth can handle the downloads. All these movies can be played via Quicktime, which is the software LEW uses for viewing movies. See here for more info on downloading a free copy if you don't have this software.

This page has been set-up so people can follow the fifth gear series and their attempts to get a 99 V8-GT to do 200mph. A LEW users is going to digitise the Esprit parts of the series so non-UK users and those who can't get Channel 5 can see this interesting project. You see the first installment below, hopefully followed by the rest of the series.

Some of the movies are hosted on non-LEW sites, so you won't need any player software. But!
