  1. An Evora with S1 dash/interior & seats in the new US market GT (better doors/armrests etc) Evora with the 430 front in-clam wheel air pressure vents with 430 bhp with S1 18/19 wheels and tires would do it for me. But any of the Bahar designs with a manual gearbox would also give me a ‘next car’ target.
  2. There are some people at the factory who are absolutely fantastic and have been there since forever. Just have to deal with them. But yes there can be epic foul ups like incorrect parts delivered etc. The current change is making things much more expensive at the minimum Id rather keep lower prices and occassional cock ups than pay alot more and loose a relationship that feels special because you are dealing with great loyal Lotus staff at the factory.
  3. New management at Lotus has changed the policy of allowing direct parts purchase from the factory. Gutted, after 8 years I built up a great relationship there and its a pity as I am happy to send money at Lotus. Engine and oil filter can be bought from Toyota dealers. What about the pollen filter? Anyone know another supplier part number for it?
  4. I will be rather surprised if this is the same ‘feature’ from the series one Evora’s- when not in sports mode sweeping bends triggers the abs often happens on bendy motorway on ramps Its just poor abs programming. Push the sport button and it does not happen. I went through this - all the sensors -wheel, steering, yaw, abs controller etc - years ago. No fault. Just crap abs set up. Does the 2014car have a sport/race button? Does this happen regardless of on or off sport mode?

    Im on the 3rd but one was completely unnecessary. Current one is the optional V6 CUP exige lightweight clutch and flywheel so its not troubled by my NA power

    Thats my Evora. A friend drove it behind me on the way home early last year. 1200miles. Quite a 1 day drive in a 340R
  8. Just dumps water onto the bulk head side exhaust/cat and if its parked this just drops to the floor panel and them through the nacca ducts and cutouts onto the road surface. Nothing to be concetned about.
