With apologies to the author of the Esprit S3 website, who states that "due to the fact that I'd much rather be driving my Esprit than writing web pages about it, you might have to hang around for some time for this page to fill up."
I lifted his code in order to maintain some cross reference ability
Some of the information is lifted from the UK Lotus Excel enthusiasts site, so I put this up in good faith but accept no responsibility for the Intercontinental accuracy.
If there is a tech note, click on it and read it, however,
It is your responsibility to ensure the parts are appropriate for your particular car
Happy Lotusing.
If you know any additional parts or reliable international suppliers,
email me and I will include them in the list
Any suggections to improve the site gratefully accepted.

My friends rag me with their definition of LOTUS
Lots   Of   Trouble  Usually  Serious

And the LOTUS position,
upside down in the front seat with head under dash.
