  1. I’ve had both the N/A and currently a SR and for me the dark textured steering wheel and HVAC surround look much better than the smooth alloy. But I also refused to upgrade to a 4xx because of the front-end and revised interior. Mind you, the GT front-end has returned to the Lotus good looks but it’s a shame the armrest is only in the non sport model.
  2. ....and then buy it anyway, because Lotus is about passion. Otherwise we’d only see subdued “German” colours, similar to those on most LE Evoras.
  3. I would be very interested. I have just bought a 79 Elite that needs a full set and have a 87 Turbo Esprit. Any idea how long this might take, the Elite needs to be on the road again this month?

    Nice work! i think it’s the one to have, better for everyday road use....I’ll have to wait until the UK owners get bored of theirs....it could take a while Now they are out of production, has anyone started an Evora 430 registry?

    Just my luck to have missed the only GT430 Sport

    Well, the B&C Sport 430 was for sale for ages... I just wasn’t in the market til now...and someone in the UK now has one . I would be using it as a daily when I’m home each month, track days would be very occasional. I know about the performance difference but wondered if the ride or interior spec varied too. Anybody know how many were actually built of GT and Sport... I can’t imagine all 60 were done looking at how many are still for sale in European dealers.

    I see the B&C GT430 Sport has sold. I was tempted to have a look when I got back from overseas... . Typical timing. Any thoughts on the pros/cons of running a Sport vs a GT ? what are the differences besides aero ?

    I agree, it’s just simple forum management, nothing personal or opinionated.

    Is the US Evora GT intended to be a limited production run in the way the GT430 was? If not, and given it can be modded into a GT430 spec with OEM (and no doubt eventually aftermarket) components then any GT430 register is going to be a minefield. . Being a limited edition was a significant part of the GT430 marketing and a consideration in the resale value.

    Surely the 430 is a higher spec...and they are still available in dealers showrooms!
  11. I have 4 Lotus cars, all on the road but this weakness in the Evora is an absolute disgrace. The fact that a car could fail it’s first MOT and the only official solution cost over £1,000 per light is ridiculous. Re-manufacture of critical parts normally happens to classic cars, not the current model, the silence from Lotus is deafening. Well done to Silverstone for taking this on. I look forward to seeing cars advertised with the “Silverstone lights” Does anyone know it current models have the same spec lights?
  12. One reason I’ve kept my Sport Racer so long is the interior. It was a massive improvement on my 2010 NA and I personally prefer the darker steering wheel and hvac panel. I was disappointed with the 400 and GT cabin and the lack of door armrest.....this a GT car, where do I rest my elbow?
  13. I disagree with this sentiment that mileage should be a premium. I have many Ferrari friends and some Porche that simply can’t drive their cars other than special occasions because every mile devalues their cars so much. Ironically, it forces them to be garage queens which are then prone to problems caused by lack of use. Lotus is all about the driving experience, I hope as a community we recognise that a driven car is more reliable and hopefully more desirable.
  14. Thanks for the update Mathew. Whst is the turnaround time? Could it be done in a day if we visit the workshop? Given the lack of support from Lotus on this prevalent and expensive issue, cars having this “upgrade” will be more desirable!
