  1. Isn't Magma similar to Fire Red? A nice enough colour but a bit dark and the tendency to look a little dull in this country I feel - probably fantastic in California
  2. That's where I am. I've asked them to do Motorsport Green but got told a categoric no. I'll see them for myself in November but it's highly likely I'll defer
  3. Yes, by November 5th. Which is irksome for those of us who don't get to see the car until the 4th
  4. I had my phone call this afternoon. I placed an order with Oakmere on 5th June and then through the Lotus website on 7th July
  5. The FE is £75,995. Not sure where you're getting £80k from
  6. I do hope that's true but at the moment I'm not holding out much hope. From what I've read, B&C deposit holders are booking on that roadshow link. Given the roadshow starts in 11 days time, if that's not for deposit holders then (you would hope) they would get to look at it before then, which isn't a lot of notice. Seems all very last minute/panic stations if true. Any B&C deposit holders able to confirm/deny?
  7. Yes. Apparently Oakmere are looking for a larger venue due to the amount of interest!
  8. It does seem that way, which is probably not what they intended. Hope the car's software is better written!
  9. I booked on the Concord Hangar event, 5th Nov at 11am. Top tip - it doesn't work in Safari - use Chrome
  10. Looking at the roadshow booking page I don't see Oakmere listed but Concorde Hangar, Manchester Airport is. Not received an email yet either. Anyone else on the Oakmere list with any info?
  11. Manual at the minute, but might be swayed into the i4. Many pros and cons for each.
  12. I wonder if the options listed are in addition to the launch spec, which I'm expecting to be quite high, or just options on the 'normal' spec
  13. If anyone's going to FoS, could I ask a favour? Could you please get some photos of the engine placement in both the i4 and the V6? I'm expecting the i4 to sit lower but it would be good to see an actual comparison.
  14. I placed my dealer deposit a month or so back. I got an email this morning saying to place the order on the Lotus website and then give the reference code that you get to the dealer - they would then ensure that the factory order is matched to the dealer queue. The dealer will refund my dealer deposit. I'm 5th on the list at Oakmere. Apparently, launch cars are V6 and the i4 will come out 3 months later. Specs locked around autumn and cars starting to come through from April. If you want to drive one before ordering, you would probably not get one until end of 2022 (or later). I'm going for V6 manual. I think...
  15. What's the blue like? Is it a pearl or a solid? Looks like Daytona on the screen
  16. The V6 is 394bhp. The i4 is 360bhp
  17. I ended up leaving it before the actual reveal due to the constant drivel. Failed to find a 'mute all' so watched it on YouTube. Shame as the idea was really good
  18. I think that was the intention personally
  19. May I ask who that was with? Just wondering if there's any consistency between dealers
  20. Anyone here placed a 'deposit' on an Emira and care to share who with and how much? Just been in to Oakmere and they wanted £1k, which seems a little 'toppy' given the factory aren't thing orders yet
