  1. Cannonball Ireland do a Super Car tour of Ireland every year. It’s a three day tour around Ireland stopping off in towns and going through villages raising money for charity. You stay in nice hotels etc. Not cheap but supposed to be a good event.
  2. Went on the Cannonball Ireland drive from Kildare to Tipperary at the weekend. Car got a huge amount of attention and interest. One of the other owners came up and said “That car is just so cool it’s amazing”.
  3. Sikaflex, it takes time to go off so you can take your time getting the fit right. You can also cut it off again after it cures with fishing line as it remains elastic. Dry fit first, from experience you will probably need to sand the moulding to get a really close fit.
  4. It was ever thus, the windscreen on my previous 400 cracked a few years ago. Stone flew up from the car in front. It took weeks for the replacement windscreen to arrive, which was broken, the next one arrived but they broke the windscreen trims and on and on. I feel your pain.
  5. My first Evora was a Silver LE with an Oyster interior, AU59DRX, noticed its not on the list, I was wondering whether the owner is not on the Forum or whether the reg has been changed. Tris...
  6. I had forgotten the reaction this car causes, not been able to use it much during Covid, so taking it out in public is a novelty. Took 'Ethel' for a little run into Howth near Dublin yesterday. With the weather in Ireland everyone is out and about enjoying the weather. Lotus' are rare in Ireland and Evora's even more so, don't think I've seen another one here. Everyone we passed was staring, thumbs uping or making positive comments. We nearly caused an accident when the driver of a car was hanging out of his window trying to take a photo. My GF made a comment which summed it up "Why is everyone one sta.... oh of course I forgot which car we are in, and how much attention it gets." Gotta love this car.
  7. For me the Evora and Emira actually represent two different audiences. The Evora has never been a mass market car, if howmanyleft is accurate, only 500 or so sold in total in the UK. It is an analogue car, few drivers aids, all of which can be turned off and minimalist approach to the interior and non essential equipment. The Emira is more a mass market machine, it is a more direct competitor to the Porsches of this world, because it has the options and interior that that market seems to demand. That world demands shiny toys and displays which show you lots of fundamentally useless information and a car that mollycoddles you. This is the larger market but more competitive market. Give me the analogue car, something where I am the driver, and I decide where the edge is for myself, if I get it wrong it's my fault. I didn't buy my Evora for the interior, although I like the interior. I bought it for how it sounds, drives, goes around corners and puts a huge grin on my face. If the Emira opens up a new buying audience I think it will be good for everyone. if it sells in the volumes they are hoping it just makes my Lotus look rarer and more exotic. 🙂 Tris...
  8. I wonder if the bigger influence on price will be whether existing Evora owners decide to change to the Emira, flood the market and dealers drop the prices to get rid of stock? The other influence could be whether or not all the orders for the Emira are genuine or there are people hoping to sell their build slot for a profit. A friend made a profit selling his build slot for the Cayman GT4. I don’t know whether that is still a thing or not. Seems to me at least that there are still hurdles to overcome before the first production cars roll out. It sounded like they are still building the production line. After some serious thought I am going to stick with my Evora. Fortunately Ken ‘have I got a deal for you’ Morgan formerly of Snows Lotus isn’t around to influence me any more. Tris…
  9. Mine arrived this evening. @Bibs Thank you for organising. Tris…
  10. Ah ha, that would explain the association then.
  11. Slightly surprised to see an Avon Tyres Ad using what look like Evoras as the car. Have Avon ever been a supplier for the Evora?
  12. Random Lotus Evora TV Sighting: Lucifer Session 2 - “A Good Day to Die” Blue Evora in the Bad guys garage/shed.
  13. Great stuff Tef-Gel, use it all the time on high tech racing boats especially between carbon and aluminium. Sticky as hell so don’t get it on your clothes.
  14. No build plate, apparently the owners weren’t interested (You draw your conclusions on that one), and no sub woofer for the Hethel editions. What the logic was I’m still not sure. In fairness you did get the forged wheels and colour matched callipers etc. I did love the Motorsport Black paint on mine, in the right light the car turned gold.
  15. When your dog and your car just happen to match. #BorderCollieGT410Sport
