    Evora Picture & Video Thread

    @Brussgood choice, but thinking "124" is the Evora Endurance / race car, "122" for production Evoras ....

    Evora N/A vs Evora 410/430

    I think Ohlins standard on the GT 430 Sport, wider wheels are an option, vents not there 😉

    Production of Evora 400 ceased?

    @Gashead1105 well in germany a substantial price rwduction for the exige 410 has been announced, I got the impression that maybe ( j u s t maybe) the new management has realized that the last price hike initiated by the former management might have been "too much", therefore maybe the Evora will also start in the near future with a more accessible base price. @tim_marra you mean these rear hatch struts that didn't last 30.000 km 😉 (to be fair, they have been not that expensive to replace...)

    Production of Evora 400 ceased?

    I have heard / read that the production of the Evora 400 has ended (?) Any more Information on this? 410 now the remaining "entry" Evora? (In case this Topic has already been raised sorry for duplicate....)

    Finally have an Evora!

    cdl pin delete took place within MY 12 I think (my MY 12 doesen´t have them, car has been build in spring / early summer, just around the "factory closed" time...) but if I remember right from the advers of "real cars " in Germany the MY 12 produced within 2011 had them (also they had floor mats with a circle shaped Lotus sign, my car got the floor mats with the "Evora" script........ @techyd massive congrats, Looks great in silver I Think , Interesting to read that Gordon Murry owned it, I know he rates original Elans very high and would likr to know what he thought of the Evora
  7. @pete757 it was an advise from Lotus directly after the second mc failed (first had been changed because it was called back, but never had a problem with the first one), it was just a recommendation, no "you have to" but because of the technical points that @agentdr8 has stated in an highly understandable way I found this advise reasonable.

    @Breeze no wonder you are not convinced by the 400 int: your car got a lot more leather and a lot more expensive recaro seats ......

    Evora Picture & Video Thread

    @Steffen_Leitgeb-LSWGmbhHi Steffen, well, in 2012 there was an Evora s same color as a demonstrator of Lotus Leipzig which got a foil later on ( I think white if I remember right....) awesome color no doubt!

    German press wrote that the passengers "only" were injured lightly / middle - all the best to them

    @scotty435 a "simple" premium pack or premium pack sport could be ordered in several leather colors, but I guess because of the lower price the sports racer has been ordered by most buyers. In Germany the 2013 sports racer s was cheaper than a similar equipped s in 2012!

    Future of Lotus

    @Breeze But - and this is a BIG but - if your current SR is niggle free (maybe after sorting out some minor things as the most of us I guess...) do you think the "upgrade" or Change is worth the additional money? Whenever I had been thinking about something in that direction my conlusion was that if you have an Evora that "behaves" well a Change would not make sense (and I am not talking of even personal taste, esp I like the int of the S1 f a r more.....) If you have a decent S SR it would tka you more or less around € 100 k for the "upgrade"......more than the S SR cost when it was brandnew......
