  7. Hi Bibs that's my old car what a day that was. Some stories can be told about that day and the car. Drove down with the Esprit to hand in for Motorsport to service her and came back up the road with the Evora 1/9/2009 Back down a few days later with Evora left for first service and came home in the Esprit then flew down and picked up the Evora 10/9/2009 back home for a couple of days then off to France with her for two weeks. First Burnt Orange Evora and at one point Lotus asked if they could keep her for a press car no chance was the answer. The glory days of Lotus fantastic company back then. Andrew

  16. Can we talk 16 minutes sorry but have we not heard all this before. Yes it was difficult times before corvid 19 now even more . The chat about dealers very interesting specially here in Northern Britain (Scotland) as we still do not have one. Now little or no support for a Lotus owner here. We have a independent Specialist who i do not speak for but seams to have no support from the factory. U K customers now forgotten not much of a market here for Lotus thats how we feel. As a long term Lotus owner and enthusiast some of the best days was going back to the factory to get the car serviced and visiting the factory you had a fantastic facility get back to using it. You produced the best ever platform for a sports car the Aluminium tub of the Elise to which still has not been beaten come on it can still be developed more. You have to once again engage with the public playing your cards as close to your chest just is not working as so many of the young say Lotus WHO. As Mclaren have learned from you you must now learned from Mclaren. It upsets me to see how much has been lost at Lotus over the last 10 years another company would have closed by now . Andrew

  19. It was pretty poor show and will probably not watch any more. . As for the work done to the car lots of questions but no answers. You just knew that the S3 was going to breakdown all just a set up. A
  20. Went passed today no cars and no signs up. First time in many years that there is no Official Lotus dealership in Scotland. Thank goodness for CMC.
  21. Its a great shame that Lotus have not got into bed with Toyota they have worked together for many years and Toyota have come to the rescue a couple of times over the years The Hydrogen fuel cell would be the game changer for Lotus and Toyota are doing a great job developing it. The 2 together would make a great team and the cars we want. Lead the field once more.
  22. This just confirms what i have been saying for the last 2 years.
