  1. @tim_marra aside the joking - passengers in my MY 12 were always "surprised" how many parts actually were covered in leather and wihich pleasant overall atmosphere is generated. Relating to the (boring) theme, comparison to Stuttgart Sportcars, yes could have them with the same leather parts but things like "leather covered air vent" cost a Little bit ( ) more. The downside in the past was that in case a leather part has to be substituted (in my case the "air bag cover" on the Driver side - yes I know its not the air bag underneath but ist look like that...) a n d you have a not very common Color in your car you will have sev months........that could be improved.......
  2. @tim-marra No! The backside of the seats are plastic......but of course you are right and I always wonder - having that nice leather interior in mind - that pepole say that the int of the 400 series was a big "step up"

    @Bruss good guess, just had a short glimpse on ph and adverts: I think more cars hanging around unsold in Europe than registered here on TLF unfortunately

    As it seems that the production of the GT 430 / Sport also has been ceased (no longer as a current model on the webs.) - does anybody know how many GT 430 had been build?
  6. Recently seen on instagram: Magnus Walker got himself an Esprit! Well, I guess that will draw more Attention to Lotus as a lot of other Marketing ideas........
  7. @tim_marra ...we also have the 430 sports from @Black Forest Power and @Michadams
  8. @Brussgood choice, but thinking "124" is the Evora Endurance / race car, "122" for production Evoras ....
  9. I think Ohlins standard on the GT 430 Sport, wider wheels are an option, vents not there
  10. @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...)
  11. 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....)
  12. 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
  13. @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.
  14. @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 ......
  15. Mc change......Lotus also advises to change the brake fluid yearly ...........
