  1. I remember that too at MB World. Did Crouchy also try it for size? 😄
  2. Lotus made a big deal about the Evija configurator, which made the original Emira one all the more disappointing. Maybe they got the Evija guys to use their technology on the new Emira one? The Evija configurator still says “Designed especially for Lotus, using an ultra powerful graphics processor and advanced gaming software…”
  3. The website also confirms without a shadow of doubt that the I4 will be 360bhp at launch as Lotus have said all along.
  4. @Mrandres6935 You think the dealer network for the Emira is poor in the USA? There is only ONE dealer (West London) and ONE service centre (Manchester) in the entire UK for the Corvette C8. That’s just not a viable proposition for the vast majority of their potential customer base here. Emira all the way for them!
  5. What’s wrong with leaving a piece of cardboard box under the wiper overnight?
  6. Over breakfast this morning, we were chatting with our kids about the change in CV rules. From now on they only need to wear masks in school communal areas and not classrooms (which I find a bit weird). Anyway our eldest says that he prefers wearing a mask in the classroom. “OK, why is that?” I ask, thinking that he is considering the potential health benefits. ”Because it means I don’t have to speak!” came the reply. 🤣
  7. Well last night I actually dreamed about being on a test drive in an Emira and I’ve not even ordered one! Anyway the good news for all you early adopters is that it’s much faster than I expected and handles on rails. So there you have it: the first TLF road test of an Emira!
  8. Prime Minister’s Questions today was enough to make anyone pull their hair out!
  9. Back in ca. 1990, a mechanic from the then Lotus dealer in Leicester did the same to my mate’s new red Stevens Esprit Turbo, when it was in for a service. It was written off.
  10. Can’t his boyfriend pick him up from the airport? Seems the obvious solution to that particular problem.
  11. That’s what I thought. Post delivery you’ll probably have nothing to do with these new places and still have to liaise one of the existing dealers for servicing, warranty claims etc. Not saying that’s a bad thing, since it spreads the gospel to a whole new congregation. The existing dealers will still be picking up all the increased after sales business. I guess it’s an interim solution until the increase in EV sales dictates a much bigger UK dealer network.
  12. Just one final word on Djokovic. He’d already spent a couple of days going back and forth to the tennis courts, before he finally got the elbow, so must have mingled with plenty of Australian citizens during that time. Also just imagine how pissed off you’d be if he came and sat down next to you on the flight back to Dubai! They probably had other First Class customers asking to be down-graded to another cabin!
  13. Bet you don’t have the Nitrous can in photo 2 either.
  14. I remember this old family friend taking us to the Silverstone Classic. “Oh look there’s a TR” he said, as we drove along the A43. My brother and I looked across expecting to see a Triumph sports car, only to realise that he meant a Testa Rossa. Classic British understatement.
  15. How many of those was Boris at?
  16. All this hiding behind Sue Gray’s investigation: the shear number of parties (14 to date) means this could go on for ages. No. 10 is probably hoping it will eventually blow over. Can’t imagine any of this happening if Teresa May was still at the helm.
  17. Now that is a dump. People wax lyrical about the Forest of Dean. I guess they don’t go through Cinderford.
  18. Isn’t that just an Evija on stilts?
  19. So the Government shut down the nightclubs for months on end and turned Number 10 Downing Street into “Party Central” for its workers instead.
  20. Just have to say in support of teachers, we just had an online parents’ evening and all were well prepared and very informative with regards to upcoming GCSEs. They’re also putting on extra revision classes after school. Best of all we didn’t need to leave our kitchen and all 7 teachers were seen in 35 minutes!
  21. I am sure they will all get on famously when he wakes up.
  22. My wife’s former work colleague was one of George Michael’s, err, occasional friends… He had voicemails and other messages from George on his mobile phone.
  23. That looks very nice. Could become a contender in that price range. I haven’t checked any details but Manual too! Hopefully it doesn’t kill too many customers with its lack of electronic aids. Proper old skool super car. Not keen on the illegally spaced registration on the back and the missing one from the front though.
  24. That post Barnard Castle press conference by Cummings was just two days after Boris’ big garden party. There were probably champagne corks still lying around. Very hypocritical of Boris to force Cummings to face the music for what he’d done, having knowingly broken the rules so flagrantly himself just 48 hours earlier. You can see why Cummings is gunning for him now and will keep drip feeding the media with bait.
