  1. My son measured Stan the Maine Coon yesterday stretched out from front paws to the end of his tail 3ft 9inches. A little bit of a shame earlier we had to cut the new extension floor up as one of the builders had managed to screed him under the suspended floor. 😃. Wife was massively stressed

    Just don’t let the cat out the bag just yet though @Dan E - the i4 emira will have more bhp than any V6 version🤫

    It is what Lotus is all about isn’t it having a small engine and handling like a dream. Funnily enough took the wifes 335i BMW Grand Coupe thing today, mainly because the van was blocked in by the builders,  god knows how much that thing weights and what BHP it has, but I needed to get to screwfix (again) before it closed stuck it in sport and you could argue no one needs anything faster than that. I hate BMWs but I have to say it was pretty good apart from you have to push the off button twice to turn it off I mean wtf

  3. Killed the lines for me, we had a chat with Mark from Lotus and the marketing dept specified the two colours at FOS. I get that as they need a new audience and some like a subtle shade. 

    I personally just hope by the time they get the 4 pot production going I can have Military Grey with red leather 

    the thing is @Evotion I have had a Lotus for over 20 years ( with a  small break) and I love the fact that everyone and I mean everyone from the factory is approachable, normal and actually interested in your view. Did you notice in the Ferrari part it was cordoned off? That is the difference you need to adjust to

    Maybe I'm a little too demanding?  Seriously though, we loitered around the S1 a couple of times and the attention it received was staggering.

    We did and then ended up talking to a few other lotus owners and the worlds most unlucky esprit owner 😂😂

  5. IMG_3435.thumb.JPG.92744f9e1ec50600d0bd3b387f4d15ed.JPGso this was the spec of the blue one at FOS. I think i would go for 

    1. Full Black pack

    2. Colour brake calipers

    3. 20" Wheels, silver

    4. KEF Stereo 

    5. not sure what the packs are all about so would need more info on that, driver pack probably not as this will be a road car unless it sits lower with it then it is a must. 


    Also depends on cost obvs

    I don't. I like the rear lights and the way the high level brake light joins them in the middle. No fail for me. I also like the rear full stop as to me it does have the design language of the Emira, especially the way it curves along the top of the diffuser and the two air vents on either side below the lights.



    I have got to be honest both myself and Sparkles were a little underwhelmed on the Super fan launch, we spoke about this on the way down in the car. THEN when you see it in the flesh, it pops your head gorgeous, not in the dark grey so much but the blue. The pictures just do not do it justice. 

    This I think would be my spec

    And cheers for the ticket Sir much appreciated. Day should be amazing, then Sparkles is staying in the pub up the road from me, that should be a nice sedate one 😂

  8. Hey Greg sorry I missed this and rudely didn’t even mention I wasn’t coming. I am in the middle of a house build and it is pretty manic to be honest. I actually had in my head that this was in July. 

    sorry mate I will make a donation next week to try to make up for it
