    amazing pics, congratulations! this even makes my day when just looking at it... ;-) have fun with it!
  2. Hi guys, short update on my side: I finally decided to upgrade my audio set-up as well. to make use of the positive experience from James by doing his upgrade, I took the easy way and copied the upgrade-list 1:1 and did go for the same components from Hertz. Price in Austria of course was not exactly comparable like in the UK, but at the end (for me) its still a reasonable investment that will pay off... will give an update as soon as the parts are fitted after the winter! @James: thanks again for your shared experiences, this made it much easier to take a quick decision on that kr, hymo
  3. Update from my side as well now: car has been moved to my Lotus Service Partner (actually the only one in Austria). They will re-check the warranty coverage with Lotus (I hope that this will be a non-event) and will then hopefully exchange the seat frames as well... will give an update as soon as I will get back the car after the Winter season! cheers, Hymo
  4. Thanks James for this very interesting report on your upgrade! really helpful for me too, as - after driving my Evora 400 now for a few weeks time - I have the same opinon: the sound quality of the built-in speakers/sub are really sub-standard quality. although I love the sound of the exhaust, from time to time I also like listening to some music, and for this an upgrade with the parts & costs you listed seems to me reasonable! anybody else who did do an Audio upgrade on his/her Evora already and could share some experience? kr, hymo
  5. thanks for your feedback, DJW! I checked it in my car now and it seems that it is exactly the same source of error you mentioned... will be solved within the next service, I hope! kr hymo
  6. Hi guys, after driving my 400 for 2 weeks now, I definitely realized that I have the same problem with the creaking seat ;-((( It´s really annoying, when driving the car a bit faster, of course my 90kg weight is doing the rest... nevertheless, I won´t accept this in a 100K+ (EUR) car and will request an adequate exchange here as well what I don´t understand so far is - even after going through the whole chain here: what exactly is offered/done in this respect, i.e. to solve the problem? what part of the seat (if not completely) will be exchanged? sorry for bothering, but as my next Lotus service points are either 250 or 400km away from me, I would like to arrange and clarify this first! thx, hymo
  7. thanks for your thoughts & experiences! really appreciate! this sounds all reasonable to me, somehow what I would have expected. cheers, Hymo
  8. by the way: does anybody have already another exhaust on his Evora/400? I´m thinking of an alternative, where the valves are a bit more "active" when the sport/race modus is on. also the 2-pipes system optically looks a bit better to me, but I didn´t see any on an Evora so far... kr, Hymo
  9. Hi guys, as I just got my new Evora 400 - my first Lotus so far - I´m of course also interested in the annual service & maintenance costs this car "produces". for sure it was and will not be a show-stopper, but I´m just curious how demanding the newer Lotus cars are regarding that? thanks for your inputs & thoughts, Hymo
  10. thanks for your feedback, Bibs! did just follow your advice now ;-)
  11. Time to register as well now: 2016 - 400: withe, black alcantara, black forged wheels, black pack, manual shift only since 5 days in my garage now, more than happy with it but waiting for better weather here in Vienna ;-( cheers, hymo
  12. First of all: hello to everyone here in this forum! Since yesterday, I´m also a very proud owner of a new Evora 400. by chance, I got a really nice offer to buy this care, not having it in my core focus before (was rather looking for a cayman 718 s or a F-Type S Coupe), but now more than happy to finally went for the Lotus! in order to get the car good over the winter, I´m also looking for a (indoor) cover, as the car will be parked under my Carport next to the house (which is open only in the front, so in general it should be save from any bad weather! I already got an offer for a original Lotus Indoor Cover for 420 GBP roughly, now found the offer for the TLF Indoor cover here as well. My question would be: does anybody have seen both of them and can tell me if the original Cover is worth the 140 GBP higher price? or do you think that the TLF piece is the better deal? thanks for your help and looking forward to lots of interesting experiences and discussions also here in the forum! best, Hymo
