I've never owned one and am thinking about one to use. I live in London so one concern I have is will it clear speed bumps? I currently have a mk1 tt which is ok on the bumps. Out of interest how high is it off the floor?

 

I would like a decent one, mechanically unmodified and sound, lowish miles so thinking a std vx220 with a budget around £10k. I don't have a garage so am thinking I would like a hard top (think they look good with them). Will it be fine under a car cover for the cold days?

 

I have driven a Lotus S1 many moons ago, and understand that these are better. Would really appreciate if someone is in my vicinity of sw london, if I can try one out to refresh my mind? There's so few and far between which I like and understand that it's easier to live with and service than an equivalent Elise. Any advice will be helpful - thx!

I've spotted one in Burnley which looks interesting. Is anyone near there that could give it a once over?

I used to own an NA living in Richmond Surrey - it was standard i.e. not lowered no skirting/front slats etc. I never had any problems with standard speed bumps. Not sure if by chance you have ever gone into the Bank of England sports club in Roehampton, it has a very vertical ramp up into the car park and two brick like speed bumps which I got over no problem - just edge it forwards slowly.
