  1. As often said: an Evora Targa would have been a sensible addition...............anyone knows what happened to this idea?
  2. I think the 430 sport sold that bad because of its pricing - list price in Germany was in the region of a 911 Gt3 Touring, or, if you already have owned a (good) s1, you would have had to pay around 100.000 Euros a n d your udes Evora to get a 430 sport.....The "winged" 430 even did not sell well on the continent, still some cars sitting at the dealers. Re the 410 GT: I wonder that the Michelin sport 4s are descr. as "all weather tires" - Ithink its an "UHP" tire just like the Pirell P Zero Corsa? (I guess some sort of british humor?)
  3. great work - funny if the model is out of metal and the "big" one out of plastic - normally its the opposite ....;-) (as the original model came in light blue I had to paint the rims only on mine...:)

    Great work !!!(but I think the two light blue cars from the UK are the same car, Lotus light blue seems to be a color that looks very different relating on the lighting conditions :-)) , the Belgian car seems to be for sale on Autoscout, just to mention...
  5. Over here: The sixth year (2018) of ownership was the first one with the Evora when NO engine light had come on...;-) ........so your car already behaves well I would say......

    If my old brain works, I remember 2 in Germany (1 yellow and 1 grey) and 1 from France
  7. @mik re no 1.: from my experience the main problem is that the electronics of some garage door openers do not match - you can go after the british manual, the hints on the forum ...whatever, tried so many times...then we got a differnt sytem on our garage ..and? 30 sec later the homelink worked ...... room for improvement: delivery time for spare parts ........
  8. @LotusLeftLotusRight yes it was - black or red inserts were possible. after 7,5 years in an S1 I am happy every time I enter the cabin - nearly all parts covered with leather (My 12 premium pack, imperial blue), exquisite recaro seats with long distance travel quality, sci-fi appeal analog gauges (altjough I have ro admit that the Tft display in our Golf with the map in the middle of the gauges is very good for navigation....)- can't really understand why so many people seem to complain about the "quality" - ok if its hot the ac gas problems to cool the int down but I think that you should not forget that it is a mid-engined car producing s o m e heat.....the 400/410/430 interior for ME (personal taste) is no "plus" but if I would be in the market for buying an Evora, no reason not to buy. The problem is more in the area esp @bruss mentioned. For a satisfied s1 owner there is not much difference if you would buy a 410 or 430 (lot in Europe not sold) b u t the 'upgrade' would cost you a significant amount of money that has no relation to the grade of difference in my eyes. 60 hp more or not irrelevant in modern traffic, other bumpers matter of taste...... So lets see if there will a predecessor in some time ......if not Evora still thrills over here
  9. is it just me ...(?) I am not sure if the combo of the 400 front and the "430" panel behind the front wheels work together in harmony on the US Evora GT.........
  10. @tim_marra indeed.......(I never get tired seeing this subtle combination, often thought IF someone had mentioned the possibility to order a stripe like that I might have been v e r y interested - but in 2012 I was lucky to get the car at all finally - remembering that the build were delayed because of the shut down of the production, but well, your car is also a 2012, so better communication in your case, top car!)
  11. @theelanman for ca 1 year our family car is a Golf R - highly recommended, understated car , fast, 4wd, compact for the city, adjustable dampers and: fun cause manual (ok, not available anymore....) - if more room is needed, have a look at the r estate - Harry had presented the 4door on harrygaragevids too in a decent way.....
  12. @Bruss ...I see your point.....and of course each one could do what he wants, no problem with that - but I think the base of a Lotus Evora is already very good (room for improvement is everywhere of course) and @au-yt point was that it might be sensible to first "live" with this basis before going on to modify......maybe, j u s t maybe than you recognize that you might be faster with the basis car and your money put in professional instruction hours for a race track times as if you invest the same amount in the car only.....
  13. I with you on that - esp it should be considered that on public roads the abilities of a Lotus Evora are normally much higher than what is appropriate for a sensible use (not to mention that the abilities of a stock Evora are much higher tahn 99 percent of the drivers, ....no, I am not one of the 1 percent ...just to clarify
  14. The Evija was presented in the USA with Pirelli tires - I wonder if Lotus not turns back to them with the Evora?
  15. On instagram Magnus Walker is publishing some vids and pics about a test drive in an actual Evora GT - should help the recognition of the Evora!
