Upgrades: Full professional respray (was orig, BRG), SE bumpers fitted, Clear lenses, Smoothed off number plate surround, Composite sunroof, 4 pot uprated brakes, V8 rear wing, stainless steel exhaust, S4 wheels, Dump valve, Cd player, Cat 1 alarm, New headlights, New clutch, New Carpets Problems: Had problems with reverse gear, Ive replaced the red hose with a stainless and its fine now. As ive got the seat as far forward as it goes cant seem to see the speedo which is a problem sometimes!! The car has a flat spot at low revs. Info: This is my first Esprit, and is everything and more I was hoping for. Everytime I take her out its a different drive, stunning performance for a car of this capacity, matched by superb roadholding. I coudn't imagine ever owning another car...
Fitted the SE sills which I think really finishes the body off, also fitted a Momo steering wheel which I think is much better than the dated single spoked wheel which was in when I bought her, Im considering fitting a Nitrous kit soon, this will be to please my 11 year old son more than anything... Yeah really!!!! Have also had my first speeding ticket for 15 years but well worth it.
