  1. Not my old car. Mine has the 400 alcantara wheel and front aplitter as well as larini rear exhaust.
  2. It will be tail happy and heavy but nothing else floats my boat at that price point. Can hold my daughter, gt, track, rwd, quick, high spec.
  3. Nothing initially as in need to see how much a house will cost! Probably a 2013-2014 c63 AMG coupe. With a engine tune alone it will be a almost 500hp weapon. Then hopefully back in to lotus ownership again after that. Maybe a 400 ?
  4. Had mine for 2 years and only issue was a window motor with a needed replacing. If you read about issues with any car you will find many! People use forums to problem solve so expect to find the same web researching any model car from any manufacturer.
  5. This is lotus still missing a trick! The Evora is a perfect daily.its comfy, has heated seats, plenty of boot space and you can use the rear seats for bags as well if needed, Supple suspension, cruise control etc Drive one and the Porsche thoughts will evaporate. I was looking for a 911 when I drove an Evora s sr and that was job done.
  6. Is this the one that was discussed previously and has a lot of scratches in the paint? If not that's a bloody great price!
  7. Lotus silverstone took a deposit for my car today. The chap I talked to stated the clutch was heavy but agreed there is no need to change it as it is not exhibiting any signs of wear. I believe if this had been made clearer to other people who drove the car it may have sold sooner. I also have a potential private sale lined up if this falls through. Both options give me the return I was after. I have loved my Evora and am very sad to see it go. I can't see it being my last lotus. The ownership experience has been really enjoyable from the car (how it drives and makes me feel) to the community.
  8. The bite point isn't high no. I really don't see it as an issue. Selling privately isn't something I want to do. It's serious hassle and Silverstone will offer a warranty as well. At this price point it will provide greater seller confidence. If I go the webuyanycar route the exhaust will be coming off. SOR is just under 2.5k.
  9. Seems that way at the moment. Bad timing maybe. When I was looking for a year and keeping an eye out last year there were none or maybe 1 for sale in white!
  10. That will sell quickly and I think is under priced looking at others on offer. I have chatted to Silverstone and will see what happens now.
  11. Ahhh. That wasn't there when I listed mine. That is indeed a good price. Silverstone are continuing to get enquiries about my car. I have asked them to call me to negotiate a deal if someone likes.
  12. Joint decision based on cars for sale at the moment.
  13. Agreed but that's down to Silverstone I believe. I don't think they use autotrader as a part of the service.
  14. I wouldn't disagree with that Andy but at 20k miles old I really don't think it needs replacing. I am loathed to shell out 2k when I don't think I need to. What makes it more annoying is i think it is a ball ache to check as well. If i were keeping the car it would never have crossed my mind. As stated previously it finds gear without issue and there is no skipping at all. Surely these are the signs of a clutch on the way out? If I can sell the car as advertised with a clutch that may be an option to be fair...
