    Elise seats in a Spridget?

    Hey, what car is that mister? It's a Lotus Sprite sonny. lol.

    Interesting move fitting MX5 seats
    The guys around here that have MX5's rip the seats out cause they reckon they are too high and don't hold you
    Some go for aftermarket seats but the prefered seats are Lotus Elise - hard as a rock, low and comfy
    just sayin

    Thanks for starting this thread, and agree their doesn't seem to be simple solution to any of our perceived problem/s that we all share in our (free) societies. Further, I don't believe their is one person, or group of persons to change this around when you look at them all together.

    My wife and I have a dog named Eddy (Sheltie) we rescued two years ago now, and because of hi...

    "It turns out the yellow one I listed above doesn't have any history with the car"

    Does that rule it out though?

    Are you particularly fussy about owning a car with a full pedigree?

    Why, 'exactly', do you want a Frogeye?

    Is this yellow one a Frogeye?
    Do you like or dislike the colour?
    Does it require any further work?
    Has what has been done, been put together pr...

    Sad but the game will go on

    As Prop suggests - When your number's up your number's up, there's nothing you can do about it

    Lawrence, I can remember getting a mate a beauty right on the elbow when we were kids, it blew up like a baloon
    but as you say. it was all part of being kids growing up

    cheers guys willy

    g'day Larry - I ...

    I agree, but an alternative view to reducing the numbers who have to endure such a poor quality of life is for humans to cease breeding like rabbits in areas where life is simply unsustainable.

  • Lawrence Slater28 November 2014

    My reason for swapping is this.

    On my Midget, the standard seats needed work. At least 80 quid to bring them back to reasonable condition. Seeing fromj others that F seats were a good fit, and look pretty good too, I got a very good cloth pair for circa 50 quid including delivery. Could also enhance the price when I sell the car, by at least making it a more attractive purchase to somebody....

    I understand your sentiment Peter, but it's never been any other way, and it never will be.

    The people in those shops aren't confronted daily with the problems of the people you describe. Hence it has little to no effect on them. But suppose they were? Would that change their attitude and behaviour? No doubt it would change some, but most would not change at all.

    It's not as if they ...

  • SA Wood28 November 2014

    I agree. It's a disgrace.
    Can't think of a solution to it though...

    As for tommy. It's precisely his lack of posting clear information and detail, that gets him stick in the first place. Deservedly so. Now't to stop him remedying that at any time.

    I recently bought my wife a nice silver TF soft top, unfortunatly she had a slight bump and decided that she didnt want it any more.
    So I have silver 2005 TF with only 30k miles that has easy repairable damage to the drivers side front wing, This would be a cheap nice winter project for somebody that appreciates the car.

    This dark blue, black interior car is a reliable daily driver. It has the usual dings in the paint from regular use but I have no hesitation taking this car on a long drive anywhere. It has been well-cared for and garage-kept. It would be a good candidate for restoration of continuing it's run and a daily-use car. The car is in Idaho, two-hours east of Boise. It's priced reasonably at $4500.
