  2. Hello, for me all of the above already said is OK and essential. Another aspect is important to me: Do not let LOTUS become as expensive as Ferrari or Lamborghini! LOTUS may bulid a supercar in the 100 k€ (or even more) league for those who wish that, but keep building true sports cars in the 45 k€ to 90 k€ price bracket.... Greetings from Germany, Alexander
  3. Hello, I just read the article.... well, that does not sound funny to me! Is the Evora really slow-selling as mentioned in the article? And if so, then why? Greetings from Germany, Alexander
  4. Hello, with my Evora -bulit in May 2010- I do not encounter the effect you described. Greetings from Germany, Alexander
  5. Hello George, I drive the Evora here in Germany and the Evora can get the "sticker" called "Feinstaubplakette". It will cost about 15 Euros and you can get it at any TÜV or DEKRA station. The only point might be, that in the "german car papers" that go with every car it says in what "exhaust emission class" the car falls, as there are three classes (red - not so good, yellow - quite OK and green - very good and you may enter the city). The Evora qualifies for the green sticker. But as you have no german car papers -but English ones- it might be, that there is no "readable" information for the TÜV or DEKRA officer.... On the other hand, I have not seen ANY controls here on this matter, so the chance to get caught for this "crime" (driving in the city without a sticker) is still very unlikely. Greetings from Bavaria, Alexander
  6. Hello Bibs, if there is one left, I´d be happy.... Greetings from Germany, Alexander
  7. Hello @ all, I did buy an Evora here in Germany last year. But -to be honest- I knew Lotus only from its former F1 days and I knew the Elise (and the Elise, please do pardon me, is too small and a bit too "hard-core" Track-car for me....). The first pictures I saw by chance on the internet of the Evora made me.... shiver: A great look, a perfect evolution from the Elise. That is MY car, that is a design I do love (in contrast to the new cars announced for the next years which -to me- are "too-Lambo-like"). The Evora 2+2 option was another big point for me (and my son, of course!). The sales numbers here might result from the fact, that too many Germans do not really know Lotus. And that will take some time, as the number of Lotus dealers does not allow much greater sales (I think there are 5 dealers in Germany for its 80.000.000 inhabitants...). But I do hope more and more people will learn what Lotus stands for.... Greetings from Bavaria, Alexander
  8. Hello, such an upgrade would be very interestig, indeed. Merry Christmas @ all, Alexander
  9. Hello @ all, thanks for the answers. @ Bibs: Thanks aswell for your answer. I did not think to get all of the changes retrofit into my existing Evora. But the essential parts (the SC, the software-motor-management etc.) should not be any problem, whereas the new "S"-exhaust for example (with the louder racing sound) for me is not at all important, on the contrary, I´m happy with the looks and sound of the "twin exhaust" my regular Evora has. I´m only interested in 350 hp instead of 280 and in the 400 Nm instead of the 350 Nm.... Greetings from Germany, Alexander
  10. Hello @ all, anything new on the upgrade from Evora to Evora S since October? The parts for a retrofit should be available by now, or aren´t they? Greetings from Germany, Alexander

    Evora S

    Hello @ all, I do have the Evora since June and I do hope it will be possible to upgrade to the Evora S. I knew that there will be an "S" model, and I thought that it will be retrofittable as with other Lotus cars in the past. Is there already anything known, why there might not be an official upgrade? What will there be instead? Sell the Evora and buy an Evora S? I cannot believe that.... Greetings from Germany, Alexander
  12. Hello, well, maybe I can add my thougths and experiences with the Evora I received 9 weeks ago. Yes, built quality is now (much) better than in the early ones. There has been development in many details. For me, the quirky Alpine left aside aswell as the radio reception weakness, the Evora 2010 is a great car! After about 3.500 km I can say that it runs like hell, I do not miss any "extra power". Especially on winding country roads, with 50 to 130 km/h it is the best I ever had the chance to drive with! It works fine aswell in town for all-day-purposes. During the first 3.500 km it consumed between 9 and 11 litre per 100 km.... I like that more than 18 to 25 litres that other "supercars" are in need of - for a similar cruising-fun. And my 7-year old boy is happy on the +2 seats. Up to about 1.55 - 1.60 m height he will be able to sit in the second row. Comfortably! I like the car, I like the whole spirit. And I can live with the fact of seeing thousands of Porsches in Germany, but maybe only some 40 or 50 Evoras... Greetings from Southern Germany, Alexander
  13. Hello @ all, thanks to Justin182 for the information on photobucket. Here we go: If you permit, I´d like to say: A great car! And great service from Stephan Carstens, my Dresden/Germany based dealer. Many Greetings from Bavaria, Alexander P.S.: @ Bibs: Thanks for the information on the account-upgrade. I will take this into considerartion as soon as needed.
  14. Hello @ all, I tried to post another two pictures I took of my new canyon red Evora some days ago. But I only have 1000k of space here of which I already spent 901k with the first picture I posted. Is there a way to post the two pictures without deleting the first one? Please do help. Thanks and greetings from Germany, Alexander
