  1. You would have to put in somewhere between 25 and 30K to fix that…
  2. Seen it…. It’s in a really bad way… shame 😢😢
  3. “Retail Centre” FFS….. Just sums it up! Chapman will be turning in his grave.
  4. Errrrmmmm no. I’m a chartered engineer and I think you will find they are. You my need them notarising, but hey… the bright side is no more EU $ hite…
  5. Which is why I cancelled my Emira order… it’s a JOKE Ditching dealers who have been with them for years to sell out of a shopping centre allegedly. Chapman would be turning in his grave. I won’t ever buy a new one again.
  6. It was a throwaway comment, I was being sarcastic, but seems to me it’s not going to be the Lotus I grew up knowing. cheers
  7. Let’s just call them Geely from now on and drop the Lotus bit… …. and just wait till you are going to the Trafford Centre to look at your new Geely sports car…. No thanks.
  8. This is the reason I’m cancelling my Emira order. I was so pissed off with the news I heard, I vowed I’d never buy another new Lotus. oh and don’t believe this heritage bollocks either… Watch this space….
  9. Apologies for the language, but I was a bit upset. It will come out shortly.... Its not a tin of baked beans we are meant to be buying is it?
  10. Well I'm cancelling mine ASAP ........... utter w*****s.
  11. Not very well if it has to come off I believe. I quoted what several detailers have told me who wont touch fresh paint. Please dont shoot the messenger.. thanks
  12. Paint needs to "de-gas" after application for a "sufficient period" before PPF'ing a car.
  13. Get your car detailed with Feynlab Self Heal Plus. Google it and see why. My Exige is done with it, plus add a load of PPF. cheers E0129DEA-631C-49F9-996C-520E02FF664E.MP4
  14. Hi Dave, I have a deposit down, but still feeling a bit meh at the moment, for sure it’s not going to be like my Exige, but a trip to Mendig would go someway to fixing that. The Elan is staying that’s for sure. We will see, I need to see one and drive one, that’s a definite. Maybe let the better half have it 😆 cheers Mark 27 April 21: Lotus company update and Emira name announced 27 April 21 - TomE - UK - V6 manual 28 April 21 - JamesDG - UK - V6 manual 30 April 21 - Pugwash - UK V6 manual 7 May 21 - Mark030358 - Undecided 15 May 21 - JCR - Undecided 17 May 21 - DarrylV8 - Undecided 20 May 21 - Evotion - V6 Manual 20 May 21 - Evotion - i4 22 May 21 - KennyN - V6 Manual 4 June 21 - DJW - undecided 23 June 21 - KJD - V6 manual 25 Jun 21 - scotty435 - V6 manual 28 June 21 - DaveC72 - i4 6 July 21: Emira reveal at Hethel 6 July 21 - Duncs - V6, but cost dependent. 7 July 21 - Lockey - i4 7 July 21 - freefall_junkie - V6 manual UK 7 July 21 - glen8 - i4 7 July 21 - Al_C - I4 7 July 21 - Neilread - I4 7 July 21 - Philnotts - V6 Manual 7 or 8 July 21 - JJ - Cost dependant 8 July 21: Goodwood Festival of Speed Day 1 (Thursday) 8 July 21, 09:39 - mctaff - UK - V6 manual 8 July 21 - MJON - i4 8 July 21 - Wake - i4 (V6 cost dependant) 8 July 21 - Johnhoward - V6 Auto 8 July 21 - JimH - i4 9 July 21: Goodwood Festival of Speed Day 2 (Friday) 9 July 21 - Beady - I4 (probably) 9 July 21 (8am) - Beancounter - probably i4, but maybe v6 manual 10 July 21: Goodwood Festival of Speed Day 3 (Saturday) 10 July 21 - Washy - undecided 10 July 21 - Al - completely undecided. 11 July 21: Goodwood Festival of Speed Day 4 (Sunday) 12 July 21: post Goodwood Festival of Speed 12 July 21 - emstan - V6
  15. Hope your right….
  16. Had my money down a good few months now, but still feeling kind of meh…. Its kind of like when I was a kid and looking at the Europa Twin Cam (to me the finest looking Lotus ever built) and thinking just wow, and my dad looking at a Ford Capri and him thinking just wow… Where one was just something from another planet, the other was, well, a Ford with net headrests… And that’s my worry, a modern day Capri …..
  17. That’s nothing like my 2bular I’m afraid.
  18. Underwhelmed.... need to see one in the flesh, then drive it.
  19. That blue thing looks $ hite... even if it is very poor quality.
  20. Yes no reason they cant be swapped over as they are both 1/2” BSPT I believe. But please check elsewhere to corroborate. thanks
  21. When you mean units what do you mean... a) Uprights and trunnions? b) Wishbones c) SHocks/springs? Best in the UK is Sue Miller, other usual suspects are Paul Matty, SJ Sportscars, Kelvedon. cheers Mark
  22. Oakmere had my deposit a few weeks ago... its not an issue as its refundable if you dont like it....
  23. Lets wait and see, all that is written here is speculation..... admittedley it will be easier to get into 🤔
