I thought I'd open this for discussion, get some input from those I respect most.

After this summer, I am considering trading in my '97 MY 1.9
on a '94 or '95 Lotus S4. I've always been facinated by the cars, and am actually at a point in my life where I just may be able to afford one.

But therin lies the "catch"; as in, can I REALLY afford one? From the little I was able to gather on the limited amount of information on the web; these later models tend to be much more reliable than there earlier counterparts. I've always heard horrer stories about the cost of maintaining Esprit's; but with the newer models; is ownership a much more "viable" option.

Obviously I'm not asking for it to be the little tank my Z3 is; I've owned a '74 911 (with the oil leak option); and an M6. But something acceptable -

Thanks in advance --
