  1. Coming back to the Lotus fold after replacing the Evora with a Porsche Spyder We placed our deposit with Laura on 22nd July. Obviously this has been refunded and order placed with Lotus direct. Due to us being down relatively late with the deposit I very much suspect that we will be a 2023 order which suits us fine. Ensure any niggles (albeit I suspect less than the Evora LE's) will be ironed out by the time that we get ours. Only concern is whether the V6 will still be available in 2023 as I was looking forward to having it with a manual box.
  2. Anyone else's OCD has been bugging them yet or is it just me? 40 participants and the list goes up to 44. Trying my hardest not to re-number George
  3. Will also pop along to Hermiston Gait for the run into town, I will definitely be the odd one out

  5. Completely agree. When the Evora does get a facelift Lotus should take a note on the more aggressive styling of the Evora GTE and use that. I believe there was issue with the track on the GTE (turning circle was rubbish) and hence it's not an easy bolt on excercise, but I still can't understand why Lotus don't offer this as the standard look for an Evora. George
  6. Brian, When you said you were retiring, I did not think it was from the LEG's meets :-) At this rate we will have to send out a search party for you!! At least we know it's not a ransom post :-) George
  7. Definitely one for the 2014 Scottish Elise's calendar :-)
  8. The weather was around 7C (hence us Scots had our shorts on ;-) ) Brandon did not mention that it was slippery but did not ask specifically. Car was also being ran in so would have been limited anyway. George
  9. Yep that's Andrew's Esprit. Luckily he decided to take it as it may have been the first LEGS meet that was Espritless!!! Must admit that I was torn between admiring the Esprit and the new Exige V6. Still lusting after the Norfolk Mustard Esprit S4S at Castle Lotus, it would have been mine if Lotus had not got their act together in time!!!! George
  10. Guys, Great meet again and nice to speak to familiar, new and returning Lotus/Vauxhall owners. Took a couple of pictures whilst I was there, not up to the usual Bingoking standards as the grass/car park was too wet to get on the floor. The Exige V6 S was definitely the star of the show although Dom's cocker spaniel also stole Sandra's heart. Reckon we should do a Lotus/Doggy calendar next year. Lotus Exige V6 S
  11. Here's some proof that you can live in Scotland and drive an Exige V6 in winter. The car is Murray's demo: Aspen White with Race Pack, Diamond Cut Wheels, Convenience Pack, Parking Sensors, Air Con and Heated Seats. Forgot to ask whether Brandon switched on the heated seats on the way up? Taken from the LEGS meet on Sunday 6th January:
  12. Derek, Think I have found a company that might be able to help you out Think the shipping cost may be a bit expensive though. George
  13. Could not see where I read it but are we meeting up beforehand to convoy up to Perth? George
