  1. If I get a look in on my replacement car! Very pretty! Gm77 has other options as you all know. I can not wait to drive this new beauty. Xx
  2. Charlotte


  3. Me too Bibs, me too. Rhianna "shine bright like a diamond" and a lotus 400 don't mix! The sound of 5000 revs all the way through the dartford tunnel on the other hand.....???! Awesome!
  4. My husbands taste in music, not mine!! And who has an evora 400 and has kids in it?!?!?!
  5. My husband tells me that this has all be arrange as part of my birthday celebration. I therefore would like to thank everyone who is coming to my 'surprise' party on the 8th which I understand also includes a spa day! A special thanks to Bibs for organising and given his recent loss, I'd be happy to let him look at and listen to my 400 (but no touching) Charlotte.
  6. Yes I agree, from day one we've said no food or drink in the car but can't stop boots full of sand from pre school sandpit, trading cards that end up inaccessible places and general dirt from wet weather. Doesn't bother me too much as I do get to drive this car every day and it looks so awesome from the outside! Only issue I'm having are the husband is insistent he drives!!!!
  7. Ah yes, I remember my husband telling me about your conversation. Silly me, bell and colvill would be a little too far! unfortunately, if you are as obsessed as my husband, the videos and pictures won't stop after you actually get your own. good luck in getting yours, your 4 year old's friends will be so envious!
  8. Great choice! Your wife will be pleased to know that the ceiling of the car has a carpet finish too! It is black alcantara but looks fine. I can't believe you are having trouble ordering. We went to bell and colvill which are about 2 hours away from us. Speak to Jamie there or gm77 know a lot of people now. Or of course, Bibs who should know everyone! ? hope your wife is looking forward to you getting an Evora 400..... Is it for you or her???
  9. 185mph is for AFTER I've dropped them off......that's when the fun begins! Just noticed a stop clock on the dash......a challenge to beat the 0-62mph, I feel?!?! we had a red lotus elan when we were kids convertible 2 seater room for school run with 3 kids but fun!
  10. Thanks! Yes they do....every morning I get "are we going in the sports car today mummy?" "Horray!" When they hear yes. I hope my account of use it as a family car is helping some people to convince other halves with kids that it is an awesome idea. I did find out yesterday that my husbands plan had backfired.......he was secretly hoping I wouldn't like it with all the hassles of kids and boot space ( no hassles at all!) that I would go back to using my Honda CRV and he'd get to use it on a daily basis. Ha ha ha! No chance. ?
  11. More pictures for you in full sun. It looks amazing! I assumed it would look lighter in colour but actually looks darker. Glad we went for red leather rather than red alcantara. The alcantara is ok in black but looks old before its time in red. IMOmy favourite pic as it looks black but won't flip round the right way. couple more in early morning sun
  12. Wow how exciting, can't wait to hear what you choose. We went to the factory at hethel as we wanted to see the colours in different lights too. We thought we knew what we wanted but ended up changing our minds and so glad we did. We had set on silver wheels, black alcantara and possibly silver. Then thought about black wheels and red alcantara but so happy with Our colour combo. the red leather with the grey is perfect with the red callipers. This colour looks so mean in low light I love it. I've tried to capture the light of dawn and the dew on the car as it looks like a Matt finish. Will add more today for you but hope these help.
  13. So, the 'Lucky lady' has her car back and what a lovely sunny day to enjoy my fabulous car! My day started with an awesome compliment. Quote of the day from a man in the preschool car park who came over to tell me...."THAT has to be the BEST 'mum's car' ever! it's so rock and roll."I was positively proud. After dropping off my daughter I then pushed my "make my car louder button" that opens up the exhaust baffles. what a lovely rush you get from the growls and purrs that vibrate through the car. Oh how I've missed my car. My daughter made me laugh a lot by waving at all the pedestrians passing by. They did a Double take when they saw a small person in the back. I believe that parking in the toddler/baby bays at the supermarket may get some remarks as they'll believe an idiot has parked there so they don't get their doors hit by other cars, instead of actually having to get kids out of the car! Feel I need a sign "kids on board!" Please let me know what picture you want me to post.
