  1. I'm guessing this was supposed to be a joint launch, but somebody didn't clarify which 0900 (CET or GMT) they were going with. Hence Renault/Alpine went an hour early, or Lotus went an hour late. Sacre Bleu...
  2. And here’s me thinking that a “turtle” was the result of a high risk cough...
  3. Ah, thanks Dave. That's just joined the dots to the recent discussion elsewhere on the forum about a Hendy dealership in Southampton opening up.
  4. Don't know the car you've posted. (You've posted the same link twice). Seems like a decent price, with probably some room to negotiate. That looks like the Westover showroom in Poole from the picture, but the ad says Hendy - so probably been taken over. Bought my first Lotus from Westover, and service was generally good. I'm not overly enamoured with Lotus dealerships in general on the South Coast, so I'm the wrong person to ask. They all seem to be a bolt-on to another brand, with the exception of Bell & Colvill who most rate, but I've tried to buy from twice with no suc
  5. Snows lost Ken last year. Think the new guy is leaving airway. Ken was good. Feel that they've lost their way, since
  6. Welcome to the Orange Lotus club. You'll never lose your car in a car park again. Burnt Orange just looks epic. Cingratulations. I didn't buy mine on the colour (it's the last consideration for me), it was just the right car at the right price. Was a bit of a change from my Carbon Grey S, but wouldn't go back to a more mundane colour again. Oh, and I much prefer the Evora without the "SR Look".
  7. Great to see you all last night, especially @pbharcourt's upgrade to the Firecat. Paul, if you still have that Evora itch, this is a mighty tempting proposition...
  8. Finally, it's Le Mans week.
  9. Have you tried switching off and turning it on again? By which I mean a good lengthy disconnect of the battery and a full charge. As an aside, isn't there a Lotus Dealer in Cwmbran?
  10. +1 for an OBD dongle jobby and Torque. As well as providing you with diagnostics, it can provide you with a cheeky little heat-map of your journeys, where it can overlay your speed over your route on a google-map saved to your phone. Which is nice, if a little (lot) incriminating. I had a similar issue after a lot of consecutive roundabouts and hard acceleration between them on my old S. Seem to recall disconnecting the battery for 24 hours, giving the battery a good charge and never saw it again - something to do with sensors and variances which was cleared by resetting. Engineering
  11. Canada (with Denmark a close second). Makes me happy. Although having the same result(ish) as @Bibs does cause some concern...
