    I think you are bang on the money with this, no way the Turbo 2.0l AMG4 will have more BHP than the S/C 3.5l V6 and the AMG will be the cheaper option.

    I think there has been a miscommunication somewhere re the engines I have seen a few outlets say the same thing, this is what it says on the Lotus site I think the 4 cylinder will be 60k 360bhp the v6 will be 70-80k 400 bhp

    If they bring out a decent Evora final edition with digital dash etc I honestly think I would rather have that

    Other than the Evija if this is their only car going forward I expect there will be shit loads of variants of all tune levels and trim, 4 cylinder light weight aimed at the Elise/Exige crowd and the V6 aimed at the Evora crowd etc etc

    I expect this will be the entry level version, they wlil see the Evora off with some Final Editions then usher in some tastier versions of it

    https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-news/first-official-pictures/lotus/emira/ Give me the Emira's performance specs The 3.5-litre V6 will produce 394bhp with either a manual or auto transmission, while the AMG motor, which arrives later, is good for 355bhp and drops CO2 below 180g/km. Lotus is targeting a sub-4.5-second 0-62mph time and a top speed of up to 180mph If this is all true its very disappointing! I was hoping for 450bhp minimum, guess I will wait for the S2 or a decent special edition
  9. That gives me a bit of a dilemma I had pretty much decided I was going to switch my 410 to PS4S for the extra wet/cold performance and economy when the time came but after reading this now im not so sure, I dont know if I would be able to tell the difference in all honesty?
  10. I listened to a lot of exhausts for for my S and the 2bular was by far the best sounding its just a shame they take so long to get but it was worth the wait
  11. Wow thanks, almost heaper to get proper cf ones from GRP then
  12. Thanks I did look on GRP but I didn't see them!! Interesting, thanks, I wonder how much they are from Lotus
  13. Does anyone know any aftermarket companies that make the 400/410 CF wing mirror covers like the 430 or how much they are from Lotus?
  14. This is exactly my worry but the cup 2's work out 2-3x more expensive when you factor in wear rate, so is it worth the extra cost?
  15. Brilliant thanks everyone so it seems Camskill were talking crap and its the BMW fitment I need: https://www.camskill.co.uk/m63b0s9118p139036/Michelin_Tyres_Car_Michelin_Pilot_Sport_Cup_2_-_285_30_R20_(99Y)_XL_(*)_TL_Fuel_Eff_%3A_E_Wet_Grip%3A_E_NoiseClass%3A_2_Noise%3A_73dB
  16. Thanks Simon, Camskill have the size but they do two versions, one is merc the other BMW I believe: https://www.camskill.co.uk/products.php?show=139037 https://www.camskill.co.uk/m63b0s9118p139036/Michelin_Tyres_Car_Michelin_Pilot_Sport_Cup_2_-_285_30_R20_(99Y)_XL_(*)_TL_Fuel_Eff_%3A_E_Wet_Grip%3A_E_NoiseClass%3A_2_Noise%3A_73dB Im going to switch to MPS4s when all 4 need doing which should be next change
  17. Im hunting for some 410 rears, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 - 285/30 R20 99 Where are people buying them?, Camskill told me they cant get them for the Evora and if I fit any they sell my insurance would be invalid, and it would ruin the handling! Where are people getting the correct tyres other than Lotus and what is the correct code?
  18. The GT430 was too expensive when I was looking, it just wasnt £30-40k better in my eyes over the GT410
  19. The GT410 Sport drives and feels totally different to the S1 they are almost totally different cars, so if this is an S1 type car with all the other improvements it should be good, I would still pony up the extra £3k for the GT410 Sport, I never feel mine is too sporty, too impractical or the ride is too hard!
  20. Acording to the Lotus guy I spoke to at Silverstone the end of last year aparently there is going to be a new Evora/Evora type car towards the end of 2020
  21. I find this odd, its like a properly speced GT410 Sport with the 400 spoiler and colour coded roof, with a few other bits taken from the US Evora GT. The Evora range is really confusing now. The new door cards are nice tho!
  22. Thanks but thats not really what I am after as I believe you have to do that every time, its not automatic.
  23. This is very annoying at night out of the corner of your eye, the dim switch only dims the dash nothing else. I have thought about opening the switch and removing the led/bulb or putting some filter gel inside the switch to make it dimmer.
  24. My GT410 does not have this feature like my old S did and I really miss it, I got so used to it on the S I have lost count how many times I have left the lights on a drained the battery. I have seen new GT410's advertised with this feature but this may be a listing error, so my question is, is it possible that this can be turned on in the ECU or can the switch be swapped out or an after marked solution added?
  25. @BibsThis is my current car, had it since March and it is an absolutely amazing machine 😎 However im starting to get a bit twitchy on the depreciation so thinking of going back to an older S or an Elise Cup
