  1. Just back from a trip to Wexford in Ireland. Lots of people taking an interest in the car. Almost no one had ever seen one before, there was a small car show on the Saturday and while I was walking around it, I over heard someone saying "There's a Lotus Evora parked at the Hotel, why haven't the organisers gone and found the owner to bring it over". Funniest reaction was that of the Groom at the wedding we were over for, bear in mind I have never meet him before, I was introduced as we exited the church and was doing the usual "Congratulations, hope you have a wonder life together " etc. etc. I didn't even get a word out - "Ah you own the Lotus don't you, what do I have to do to get a drive in it?" Spent a good chunk of the weekend taking various people out for blasts along the local back roads, but was totally out done by a convoy which contained, "2 Jaguar E-Types, an XK140 and a Mark 2 Jaguar". Now they were stunning cars. Tris...
  2. Picked it up today!! Spent the day tearing about the roads of the south of England, getting to know the car. It definitely lives up to the hype, having read such good stuff about the car, there was always the danger of it not meeting expectations. Not a bit of it, grinning from ear to ear. Tris...
  3. I did notice on the Test drive, that I was approaching a change from Dual Carriage way to single carriage way, and the car in front actually pulled over to let me through rather than just keeping on going. Was caught so by surprise that I had already started to brake, and got stuck behind them for 3 miles with no overtaking places. Is this common behavior towards Evoras? Is this a passport to driving Nirvana where people let you out, don't cut you up and allow you to pass?
  4. Hi Guys, thanks for the responses, greatly appreciated, sounds as though wet conditions shouldn't be a problem. Presumably a certain amount of it will be dependent on how heavy my right foot is. Must remember it is a Rear wheel drive car, I have been used to a Front wheel drive car for the last few years. Buying an Artic Silver Launch Edition, so it has all the option packs on it, which saves having to make a choice I suppose. Decided N/A was the way to go, didn't really fancy the MPG on the S, it's my Celtic blood you know. 4 Days and counting. Tris...
  5. ... Until I pick up my, new to me, Launch Edition Evora! Just beginning to get a bit excited, spent a lot if time reading up on them and just want to get my hands on it and start driving. Just hope the torrential rain we have been having of late naffs off. Not really read anything about the car's wet weather handling. I'm planning to use it as a daily driver, anything nasty I should be aware of in the wet? Thanks Tris...
