  1. If you choose the 19/20 rims on the Evora you got Pirelli corsa tires in a "LS" specification. Liked them on my car but after some years a hassle to get them over here. Now changed to Mich ps 4s. So IF Lotus create another "LS"-spec it would be nice if they care for LONG TERM availibility also or care for development / recommendation for another tire (and if someone is saying "just change to cup 2 like Lotus did with the 410/ 430 .....cup 2 are not available as 275 20, in Germany you won´t pass MOT if you change to 285 20....)
  2. by the way: I am wondering how many cars actually are fitted with Michelin cup tires (or similar) - I am not sure all the drivers got the "right" temperature within the tires when driving not acessive beyond the speed limits (after LS spec Pirelli corsa no longer available I changed to Michelin Pilot Sport 4s, happy with them, esp braking in the wet...)
  3. the amg a 45s already has 421 ps....... hmm.... 2plus 2 seating always was a huge plus of the Evora (dog and luggage transport.....) .......
  4. after 8 years in the Evora I figured out that the sound of the pioneer radio could be upgraded a LOT by just streaming internet radio from the iphone than using the "normal" radio with its - lets say - "surprising" perception😁
  5. @jep you are absolutely right on pointing out how difficult a proper 2+2 midengined car is to design - tastes are different but I think a F Mondial is an example how proportions might not be in the end of a car design process. I think there is just the F 308 GT4 and the Lambo uracco as proper styled 2+2 midengined cars (the R Alpine 310 has the engine in the back) Also interesting in the design context is to me that the new T50 of Gordon Murray has a more or less "simple" desing, meaning not that much agressive lines (esp compared to other super or hyper cars or whatever they are called now....)
  6. time will show that esp the first design of the Evora with her "smooth non agressive" lines by Russell Carr was a great shot ............(although a lot of complaints about the "not agressive" lines....)
  7. @RDwyer the width of the front tires has "not much" to do with it. Our "family car" Golf VII R has the exact same tire size on the front as my Evora (235/19) and the steering resistance is much lower (although it has the more direct steering system than a normal Golf has). Its a matter of how much servo assistance the steering system itself has. As said before the steering of the Evora is a absolute delight for a sports car. Happy searching!!!!
  8. @JimH "Model year changes up to and including MY2012 added." Great you have added this, I have added some more detailed info on the seat colors / 4 packs available (wonder if there was a car with a ash grey leather int. ever.......)
  9. If this were a Lotus Evora s3 I would be more positive than seeing the Russell Carr design reinterpreted by Maserati (with the rear / taillights of the Renault Alpine in a way...). Ok, far better than their SUV in my eyes but not enough “own” ideas....
  10. indeed, sad day, further proof that F1 is another step faaaaaar beyond the "old times" that (for me, personal taste of course) stand for suspense and "real" racing............(not for pseudo political correct "behaviour" and cars driving around as some sort of a advertising campaign....)
  11. Massive congrats - you will enjoy!!! (If you see a light blue Evora in Regensburg with Munich plates that will be me, sometimes on client visits in R......)
  12. @Bibs many thanks, highly appreciated, but the issue was solved in the meantime by the local Lotus service point (with a lot of hassle for them and me but solved in the end ...) I wanted to stress the fact that not answering is not a good idea at all, esp if there is a customer who bought his car in the more "deeper" times of 2012 (production shutdown) and always has been in good faith relating Lotus as a company
