  1. Scroll up and look at the LHD car on track in 'stralia above... https://www.instagram.com/p/Cdmd9wtpSRd/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= And their Instagram account
  2. Is that more from Lotus Australia (Simply Sports Cars)?
  3. Worth a watch: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/davidsime_sportsbroadcasting-education-skillsforthefuture-ugcPost-6933745609107525632-_et_/?utm_source=linkedin_share&utm_medium=ios_app
  4. Am I the only one excited to see the display in action? Good to see the change indicators etc in action, but slightly peeved that it is only through this kind of video that we are getting glimpses of what will be. Come on Lotus, pull your finger out.

    That wouldn't do much for the handling...
  6. It was more like this (the stick itself) than I was hoping... or about as close as I remember it... have Hendy's in Pool got a sample you could look at? NB Others who have been to the factory might remember it differently.
  7. Didn't like the red leather which was what I was originally going for (with Yellow exterior) when I saw it. Looked too "lipstick" for me...
  8. What time tonight, fellas?
  9. I can feel your frustration, but this made me giggle. From your experience so far, do you honestly think that there is that level of sophistication, planning and forethought...?
  10. I'm guessing - and I'm not being cynical, Cub's Honour - that they will save the more exotic colours for the first raft of special editions. Having been to the factory what I will say is that all the colours genuinely looked great. The yellow certainly didn't look as flat as you might think (but then, I'm biased). I was surprisingly blown away by the Nimbus if I'm honest, looks absolutely stellar, just not for me.

  12. This Thursday and next Tuesday/Thursday work for me. 19th I'm in Dubai.
  13. That's just nuts. All the time they're spending stopping people from getting engagement/ interaction with the Emira could be spent generating engagement/ interaction with the Emira. SMH
  14. Great photos, thank you. @scotty435 what was the occasion?

  16. Link sent me to a Swedish website (no, not that kind), so had to hack the url to get it to work. Then having used Google Chrome at their recommendation, the transaction plug-in crashed. Fought with clearing form/ cookies and cache etc, but because the transaction broke it then kept coming up with "authentication failed". Ended up copying and pasting the link in to Microsoft Edge and that, again, took me to Lotus Sweden. This is my work PC, so there's no dodgy browser history to worry about (my tablet might be more, errr, interesting). Messed around with the URL again and finally managed to give them some money. It really shouldn't be this hard to give a company money for the product you want to buy and, presumably, they want to sell... although I am beginning to have my doubts... So, second deposit paid and i4 configuration submitted. Thank Donald Duck for that. Happy Ostara everybody... ... to top it all, just received this. What the actual... Thank you for configuring your Emira V6 First Edition. We’ll now start planning the build of your car and will be back in touch when it’s time to complete your order and confirm a production date. Start of production is currently set for Spring 2022. In the meantime you’re in the Emira fast lane and we’ll let you know first about any important Emira updates as they occur. Best regards, Lotus Cars
  17. Rang them to get my link: Dear Jason, We're delighted to say that as an Emira priority customer you can now configure your Emira i4 First Edition and secure your priority build slot. Please click on the link below or copy and paste it into your browser. You'll be taken to the configurator where you can configure your car and secure your priority build slot by making a configuration payment. As with your initial £2,000 priority build payment, the configuration payment of £3,000 is fully refundable up to the point where you complete your order. Full terms and conditions are available when you click through to the website. It's not hard, really...
  18. Totally agree. Working for a UK based manufacturer, I can only empathise with what they must be going through.
  19. Historically, a lack of materiel has never stopped the Russians...
  20. Thanks @JimH, that definitely made me chuckle. Useful to know that you can get around the system by, errr, bucking the system. I'll be royally hacked off if I've got a later delivery date for dumbly waiting for them to contact me (and I'm not having a dig at those smarter than me, because it would be a long line).
  21. I've been noticing on other channels, Faceache for example, that i4 deposit holders are getting their spec and confirmation calls. Anyone had their's yet? Based on our last data, @Evotion and @Simon B and I "should" have been at the front-ish of the queue... ... and many who are posting are much later in the dates for their initial deposit... (it's weird how hard it has been to actually give Lotus money)
  22. I'll be in the States on business. Not that that should make a blind bit of difference...
  23. No LSD with automatics. Always been the way.
  24. Just DM'd you the press release, Keith Here it is for anyone else that want's it. (No, I don't know why I didn't do this in the first place, either) Lotus Emira First Edition price and spec (3).pdf
