    Production of Evora 400 ceased?

    7 year warranty sounds great and works for certain Korean motor manufacturers, but for me it would devalue the Lotus brand, the company doesn't need to look like it's competing with with the Koreans, so for me something along the lines of what Ferrari do with what they call general maintenance that covers everything for 7years, yes it's expensive, but the second owners do not touch a car with out it, so adds value to the car, I know people are going to say why should you pay for it, but this is how most premium brands offer extended warranty and i am sure as it looks like Lotus are wanting to be competing with these brands even more in the future and at the end of the day your not going to pay Ferrari warranty price, obviously it's going to be a fraction of the price.

    We all know what happened the last time Lotus went full pelt in the PR department not always the best way to go, in my opinion Geely are doing the small steps it needs to do, fleet cars for the first time in 2years as said by EVO the once haters of Lotus and now doing more for Lotus than Lotus are them self, with there glowing reviews. Lotus is still small car manufacturer in the big world, let's not forget that, but what Lotus have done in the last two years with ageing models is something that all other manufacturers dream off. So please give Geely time it can not happen over night.

    Evora GT430

    A few more from the same event ConcoursUK you got to say it looks stunning and fits the backdrop perfectly.
  11. This happened to me, just removed one of the fuses on the top of the battery refitted it and all ok again there is a reset button on top of the battery, but apparently it's hard to find.
