  1. I put the Evora on SORN earlier today. Might as well get the tax back from the government. I think it's pretty clear that you shouldn't be taking unnecessary trips (including just going for a drive) anywhere at the moment, and for the next month or so at least. The sooner we all knuckle down the sooner these restrictions are lifted.
  2. Mine's been used most weekends this winter. Its filthy! Took it out today, it was mega. Every time I have vague thoughts of selling it, one drive - even pootling around town - is enough to make them disappear. Still want a type r though... Got to work on the Mrs!
  3. Personally... I'd buy the Cayman GTS 4.0 at 65k and keep the change.
  4. Those door cards look the same as the ones in my 400... Am I missing something? Have they just relaunched the 400 and changed the name?! It still makes a used 400 look a pretty good buy imho.
  5. Posted this last year @TpupNomad Here's my sprint V6, the blue is persian - it is more metallic and a bit deeper than Essex I think, it changes colour more depending on light/dirt
  6. My car is Essex blue and a mate has a 430 in the same colour. Metallic blue is different. Persian blue is utterly lovely but hasn't been a standard lotus colour for a while now. My S2 and S3 exiges were in a Persian blue sprint scheme.
  7. Big fan of the red leather interior in mine. It doesn't photo well but it's lovely in reality.
  8. It's not so bright/reflective in reality, and suits the car perfectly.
  9. I bought mine second hand... I reckon I'd get c90% of what I paid for it if I put it up for sale now. Which I won't because (a) I really don't think now is the time to be selling anything that could be construed as a luxury and (b) I can't think of anything to replace it that I can actually afford
  10. Nice car. Price seems pretty fair to me, and you never know, someone lurking on here might decide it's perfect for them! Car market seems very soft at the moment. I'm left wondering what my Hethel Ed 400 with about the same mileage is worth, if yours is only 60k...
  11. This has been an issue since the S2 Exige (at least!) - I remember having to get H111 to put a new set of pipes through the sill on mine.
  12. Probably cheaper to do that than modify your current one...
  13. Yours must have been built at a very similar time to mine. I had the clutch changed as it had become very noisy and Lotus confirmed it was failing. New drop links as well, otherwise was just a couple of niggles/adjustments. All sorted out by @Hangar 111, though it took a bit of time. Picked it up this morning in fact, it was like collecting a new car!
  14. Pass. The 2bular that @CocoPops fitted on mine is not quiet enough for Snetterton - blows 96db on the drive by! That was without the additional cans fitted mind, but I can't think that they will be enough alone to lose 4db on the drive by. I'm not really sure what to do, part of the appeal of the 400 is how good it sounds and I don't really want to lose that.
