In Reply to: OT: Any thoughts on Lotus S4? posted by Matt Smith on February 10, 2000 at 15:51:52:

I had my heart set on the Lotus. I'd heard horror stories (as I had with Saab...and I learned that the hard way). What turned me away from buying a beautiful Esprit was the people SELLING the car.

EVERY seller I talked to admitted that the car was a mechanical nightmare. One guy in NYC had 2 RX7s, and was selling his to buy another RX7 for the track. I mentioned that I was going to track whatever I bought- the guy couldn't be more emphatic as he explained that there was no way I could afford to track a Lotus!

It is the most gorgeous car in the world. Used, it's a truely affordable supercar. But when the people selling the car tell you it's a hazard, well, you've got to wonder.

So I had to "settle" for my MZ3.
