  1. I was told on the call that you only start losing places in the queue after the 5th of November to allow people to attend the roadshows.
  2. That's what was explained to me on the call too. I'm going to take the view that, the longer it takes for delivery of the Emira, the longer I get to play with my Exige. Mixed feelings about letting it go!
  3. "April dealer deposit with B&C. No call as yet..." Scratch that. Just had the call. Placed Lotus deposit on 7th July JFYI.
  4. April dealer deposit with B&C. No call as yet...

  6. Two Elises and an Exige with B&C and no complaints so far!
  7. Been quoted £4k to fix too. Insurance job, but still... Hopefully the little scrote is banged up or worse by the time the Emira arrives!
  8. Either way, deposit has been down for a while so I'm going to have to pony up. Wouldn't want to go back on my word, now would I?!
  9. Unbelievable. I saw a video of a woman who was repeatedly keying some chaps Audi on her way to work. She was caught on a dashcam and taken to court. Apparently the reason she gave was that he was blocking a driveway. His driveway.
  10. Had a chat on the phone with my Lotus dealer. He was working on the assumption that the First Edition V6 would come fully loaded at £85k. No certainty this is any more correct than what others have heard of course. Just another bit of information to throw into the mix. I'm going to hold out hope that it comes in closer to 75!
  11. Sorry to hear that. To be fair, I have parked a succession of Elises and an Exige out on the street in London for over 12 years and this is the first time anything has happened. I also have mates who have had the most innocuous cars imaginable keyed. Just sheer bad luck to cross paths with a cretin, I suppose.
  12. All along the door and rear wing. What goes through the mind of such a person? An icepick, with any luck.
  13. Thanks for the reply - much appreciated. I think I've chickened out. Back to the bucket!
  14. Hi All Getting lazy in my old age and wondering if anyone had used this lot (in London) or another mobile waterless crew? I'm not too precious about my Exige (which lives outside and is ceramic coated) but I have managed to keep it relatively swirl free up until now. Am I just asking for scratches? Any help appreciated. James
  15. I went to watch the cricket once. Took five whole days. Then I worked out how they do it. They rub their back legs together.
