  1. Eyam, in the Peak District, famous for the whole village going into self enforced quarantine in 1665-66 after the plague arrived with some cloth delivered from London. About half of Eyam residents died but the plague didn't get to the surrounding villages. It's a poignant story....
  2. I'm interested to hear how you get on with the new pads - one of the very few things I don't like on my 250 Cup is the lack of initial bite from the brakes. To be fair I am on 10K miles and the original pads, I clearly don't use the brakes a lot You should think about joining one (or more!) of our MLOC runs early on a Sunday morning in the Peaks. We sometimes start from Baslow, less than 40 miles from Wakefield.
  3. Did you configure an i4 car? If so then it's not surprising you haven't been contacted, I don't think they've got a clue about delivery dates for the i4 yet. Give customer services a call if you're worried... +44 (0) 330 0948047 .... they are pretty good
  4. They seem to be telling you that this is a lot of work and using expensive parts - it's definitely NOT! The 'extra' parts cost about £20, and the 'special cuts' take about half an hour maximum. If you have a Dremel or even an ordinary electric drill and a couple of small files it's dead easy to do it yourself.
  5. I agree, but it looks like Lotus won't be asking us to pay any further deposit or legally 'sign up' until just a month before delivery (so May at the earliest). Hopefully that gives us some time to see lots more photos and maybe even some working demonstrators at main dealers. If something really doesn't work for us we can make a spec change (no doubt with a big hit to the delivery date ) or even back out at no cost.
  6. Well, I know the show car seat position was not correct (too high) but my head was quite close to the roof and my eyes were about level with the top of the windscreen - I had to 'hunch down' in order to see through properly, it was a long way off good enough for me I asked Scott how much lower the seat will be on production cars and he couldn't tell me for certain.

    I can understand that you're happy but do you not also feel a bit uncomfortable with the way that Max won his title? I'm not blaming Max for this last lap nonsense, he has to take what lady luck (or in this case Massi) gives him, but if I was a fan of Max it would definitely take the shine off his win. I'm not a Max fan (too dirty for my liking) but bizarrely, in this case,I actually feel a bit sorry for him; this will never feel 100% right.
  8. I would quite like to add to your list... Will a 6'3" driver actually be able to see through the windscreen?
  9. I reckon Magma Red is now very close to the real thing, maybe still just a tiny bit too 'pinky', but close
  10. Don't worry, if the wheel is off centre I can't say I have ever noticed it - these are fantastic cars to drive
  11. The video is ok, worth watching to get a few more crumbs of information, shame about the vomit inducing shmark and the shmuseum etc Agree with you there Scotty on the suspension settings, Sport for the best feedback and sense of speed, I don't care if it's actually slower than the touring setup on bumpy roads.
  12. I have to agree with all of the above and now this really doesn't help..... In asking people to commit without the full information being available Lotus could be in danger of unleashing a shitstorm of changed and cancelled orders next year.
  13. Not sure about the gold one but the Aiforce Blue car looks great
  14. I too have been told quite clearly that the i4 will be priced approx £5K below a same spec V6. I'm also not sure that we will ever see a £60K Emira - inflation, demand, and (as Tom says) rapidly changing conditions will most likely make it impossible to hold that starting price
  15. Yep, these are exactly 'the other things' that I mentioned on the other thread, things that Lotus haven't yet told us about. These unknowns are making it very difficult for me to be certain that I will take the final plunge on a V6 FE early next year. At the moment I'm trying not to think about it, much easier just kicking the can down the road
