Lotus Esprit on TV Advert
Webuyanycar.com feature Esprit on TV Advert
An Esprit V8 has been spotted on a recent TV advert for webuyanycar.com. Flashing on the screen for only a short period of time.

We don't advise selling your Esprit to 'We buy any car' as you are unlikely to get anywhere near the price you'd get advertising at www.esprit4sale.co.uk. But it's still nice to see the Esprit on TV in any form.

Save Lotus Trim Shop
Lotus set to lose skill set we all could use
Lotus are allegedly prepared to close their excellent trim shop, which LEW have used to trim our seats and centre consol. We have seen brilliant work by the staff there and met many during a factory visit. It would be a sad trend to lose these skilled workings.

TLF member Nick Page has set up a petition to show our support and request it remains. Please click below and sign the petition.

http://www.myonlinepetition.com/petition/340/Keep+Lotus+trim+shop+open/

Update
We have received info that this rumour may not be true and the trim shop isn't closing. We'll update more as soon as we know.
