  2. Well found the fight guy in service this week. The handbrake was adjusted. The airconditioner was re gassed after being checked. The cruise control pins were tightened Whoaaa all ok now.
  3. Thanks, yes I have resolved the cruise control. I found the black nylon fork and openned it. Will see how it goes in the next day or so. The air con will,start with a belt check then clutch etc etc.
  4. The evora is two years old. It has travelled just under 15,000 The Service has been reasonable but I need to take it back to them again and again. I just checked and I have been back 7 times. (1) First A pillars (2) then dash (3) then dash again and airbag lid. (4) Then a recall on door mechanisms and radio (5) Then cruise control. (6) Service and loose sway bar and loose caliper bolts. Had the service done same time. (7) The door locked and had to climb in and out through passenger door. Mechanism fell apart inside cavity of door door Now air conditioning.!!!! And airbag l
  5. Thanks so much guys for your responses. I certainly have a few great suggestions for the Service agent. I'll try the footwell fix also for the Cruise control. In particular the Cruise control and the Air Conditioning. The use of a Toyota rather than Lotus replacement parts is very relevant and appreciated. I did have the car booked into the Alpine dealer to look at the radio etc. Mmm maybe a Pioneer is the go. Thanks again.
  6. Hi all I was going to Post this thread in the more appropriate section but then realized the questions and problems were so many and varied that I would just drop it in here. I guess put simply, am I the only one experiencing the problems listed and has anyone resolved any of these satisfactorily. My purchase a new Evora has had quite a few problems so I thought I would list them in order with comments on what's resolved and what's open. Perhaps the technicians or the handyman enthusiast might come up with some solutions. This is pretty much in order and I'll number each one to perha
  7. I was just reminded that it has all the premium interior in charcoal/grey leather. Guess I should tell buyers it is white with black wheels - standard Anyway as I said for info. I will place it on Car-sales the national car selling site in Australia.
  8. Hi all, Well it's time to move my 2012 registered Lotus Evora on to a new owner. I just added a 997 S to my garage and I know I may get some criticism for replacing my Lotus with a Porsche but..... Located in Melbourne area in Australia it is a limited market - could always ship it back to the UK. It's the Evora with a Radium air flow system on the intake and a Larini sports exhaust. Done just 12,400 - about 7000 miles - They sell for around $85,000 to $95,000 in Australian dollars. For info. Bernie 0408 564448. +61408564448
  9. Simon Luckily I did not call the Thread - Lotus Position.... May catch up in Adelaide one day.... Cheers Bernie
  10. Hi all, Well I am in the heart of Lotus land at the moment. After spending two weeks in France we arrived here in the UK two weeks ago. With a 3 series BMW luggage packed we headed off on our tour. Thanks to those who emailed me with suggestions. For info we spent two days in Oxford and two in Bath before heading to St. Mawes and then Endsleigh hotel near Milton Abbey in Cornwall and Devon. The two Olga Polizzi venues were more than up to expectations. We enjoyed our terrace apartment in the Tresanton and the estate of the Endsleigh. Appreciated those two suggestions. The onto
  11. Mate have you left our fine country? Just sent you a Private message on site today - make that two (2) messages!! Bernie - Geelong Victoria
  12. Ramjet Michael, Birregura to Forest across the Otways down into Lorne. Tight and sweeping fast bends. Alternative and obviously longer is into Colac turn tight left to the Great Ocean Road, then down over the Otways and steep drop down into Apollo Bay, well worth doing but early to avoid the radars!! Then back along The Great Ocean Road. If you go down very early you need to be careful driving back between Lorne and Anglesea as the road bikes really hammer through the corners and are often on the double lines. They seem to start heading down about 7 to 8.00am from Geelong. Solarsh
  13. Just an update. The Larini by pass and exhaust is now fitted to the Evora with the heavy old exhaust now stored - just in case a future buyer wants it. With the by pass in place and the new Larini on, I thought I would head down over the hills and back along the Great Ocean Road. This road is a well known race track for road racing bike riders. Not wanting to give to much away, it is worth an early morning run on day break prior to highway radars and the law enforcement out in place etc. I picked up a Ducati 916 and decided to hang on him - at a safe distance through the hills - to sa
