  1. Yep. Only awkward bit it getting the cable into the glovebox from behind the headunit.
  2. I got the hacksaw out and made a bracket. Just a bit of bent stainless steel (for strength and thinness). Uses the headunit mounting screws so all reverseable. Then screwed a Brodit cradle to it and ran the cable into the glovebox to pick up the usb.
  3. Not sure of the exact dB numbers but any of the 4xx engined cars will fail pretty much any test when the valve is open. They have larger-diameter downpipes than the earlier 3xx cars and are noticeably louder. (I’ve had both). If you somehow squeak through a static test by keeping it under 4500 (where the valve opens) you’ll get done by the drive-by meters unless you short-shift to keep the valve shut. Only places with high noise limits (eg: Spa) are possible. The Emira has a new variable valve (not just the open/shut old one) so it’ll be interesting to hear how it works.
  4. And me. Want to see that there’s an engine in the back. Also, the little quarter windows are regularly useful at junctions in the Evora. Emira will be the same.
  5. I’m not moaning or nit-picking at all. This stuff is “extra” to the quoted price of the car, but all perfectly normal. Just putting it here as there seemed to be some confusion.
  6. On-the-road Costs Includes delivery to a Lotus Agent for your collection, or delivery to your home address or place of work in the UK, cost of number plates, a full tank of fuel, pre-delivery inspection and valet. £1,045 Road Fund Licence £1,910 Registration Fee £55 £3010 total for “extras”
  7. PX value for my Evora was £3k less than WBAC…
  8. Yes, yes, yes, that’s all very well, but have they found any red thread for my steering wheel?

    Did you have a punch up over suspension options?
  10. Ted, holding up some plastic cows says, “Ok Dougal, one last time. These are small… the ones out there are far away. Small… far away…” It’s a photoshop. Look at the shadows. There aren’t four suns in the sky. Even in Hethel.
  11. The Goodyears came out pretty well in a recent Evo tyre test that included the PS4S.
  12. And mine. Except I’m not even bothered about them brand new.
  13. Yep, me too. B&C deposit 23rd June. Biggest thing was no more deposits (refundable or not) until final, full payment 30 days before delivery. And still no coloured stitch steering wheels… 😤
  14. Anyone else with a pre-reveal deposit wondering why we’re not getting a call when posties are?
  15. Not particularly tall but high torso to leg ratio…
