  1. Given the impending global economic depression, what are peoples best guess on how it will effect the Evora market in the coming 12 to 24 months?
  2. Can say I’ve had any interior issues whatsoever in both my Evoras (2011, 2016)
  3. My MY16 Evora developed a crack in the fuel tank itself. Replaced under warranty but it seems it can happen in a rare location.
  4. Elise is the perfect car for you as I’m sure you already know
  5. All in one dash, nav, touchscreen, apple/android play/connect Windows that close and seal correctly/tight when door closed, and loose the crappy rubber seal replacing with proper recessed area. Auto wipers, and lights Doors that don't rattle when shutting, better designed to stop water/mud ingress into sill area and water pooling in door handle. Boot mechanism that reliability works and does take multiple presses of the key or jamming up and down the lid. A gas strut would be nice as well rather than balancing on my head all the time. A key that not from the 80's and folds away in my pocket. Wing mirrors not from a metro or whatever they are from that suit and look like they belong a on sports car. Better quality interior feel - the S1 is ahead on this. Much more torque.
  6. You think that too expensive?
  7. Hi all, going to sell my 410 , I was thinking about 60K for it (13K miles), it has the Sparco seats, all options. Do you think people would buy private at this sort of price bracket or am I gonna take the 3K (ish) hit for SOR? Any experience welcome. thanks
  8. So turns out there was a leak in the petrol tank - one of the spot welds was not good/broken/cracked and it was weeping out and soaking in to some insulation foam. Quite a job to get it replaced.
  9. My car is at Strattons getting some warranty work done and petrol smell investigation. My boot release in my opinion has not been working correctly for some time. It takes at least 3 presses of the boot release to get the mechanism to fire. Then once fired quite often it simply will not lift up without a quick push down and up. However Stratton tell me its normal it always takes 3 pushes. My Evora S was nothing like that, and I know it never behaved like this in the past. Just wondering how many presses it takes for you and the behaviour you get with the carbon lidded versions?
  10. So which way did you go in the end?? Personally I think the Cups2 is what makes the 410 feel like the 410. Just love them. But they are totally crap below 8 degrees. If you have the money keep Cup2 for the summer and then get some proper winter tyres for the cold part of the year - that would be my choice. Winter tyres are so much better than summer tyres (PS4, etc)
  11. Think you all too focused on the looks/association of these doors. When done correctly it make ingress/egress so much better in tight spaces.
  12. On the S1 scissor doors would be great IMO if done correctly. This implementation it seems you need to open the door quite a lot sideways before it hinges up. Car parks are tight in the Evora getting in and out - if Lotus engineered this properly I'd be a fan.
  13. Thanks mate, thought it would be the case (never used one). I may need one soon.
  14. For those with outdoor covers - I'm presuming you need to clean them each time otherwise with the wind etc the paint gets scratched/swirled from the dirt??
  15. Same! In France as well. Perhaps its a global Nissan dealers must - I had to get mine off with a hairdryer
  16. It might be the new seats in my car, but I'm sure I'm getting a petrol smell in the cabin after leaving the car overnight. Anyone else had this??
  17. It does take a long time as its really hard to get too, mine took most of the day so not far off. Its much quicker if the cam is off obviously. IIRC they have to half work through the wheel area.
  18. What exactly do you mean by 'runs like a dog'?
  19. This the aux belt? Mine snapped on my old S but was brand new and basically had not been put on right. Didn't cause and problems.
  20. Not too keen on painting them, though I might if it becomes a ball ache. Need to look at Jimbos to see how they look
  21. So my rear hub are starting to rust, wish Lotus made them out of the same stuff as the fronts. What can I use to remove the rust? Would a standard rust remover be ok? cheers
  22. Well he loved it. He's totally right about the interior.
  23. I dunno, I'd be surprised if you'd notice much difference going from 400 to 430 all in the top end. Can't be much in it at all. Without a torque increase I can't it making hardly any difference on a give stretch of public road?
