  1. Good luck to you fella. I am wondering though, what is it about your car that means you get it before all us pre-reveal depositors.
  2. Yep. That appears to be the case. Had my call today. Dec build, Jan delivery. 23 Jun ‘21 deposit. Wondering what the post-reveal depositor who’s getting his car this Friday did to deserve it.
  3. Strange. If it was first registered after 1st April 2017 it should follow the new system and be £520. 🤷‍♂️
  4. Rules changed in April’17, so depends when it was registered.
  5. The numbers I’ve got are £2365 first year, £520 for next 5 years then £165. The new car rates went up and the CO2 was higher than initially estimated - 258g/km. https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax-rate-tables
  6. A scarcely believable 98kg! The Evora 400 was 1395kg, the Emira (according to the handbook) is 1493kg. Complicate then add weight, as someone didn’t say. But, hay-ho, that’s how it is. It’ll still be great. 🤞

  8. You are a lightweight with no staying power. 😁 But I’m nearly jealous. The F430 manual would be my Ferrari sweet spot, only a coupe and not red. Don’t enjoy it too much, eh.
  9. Oi! That’s my idea. I’m gonna sue. (Mine was a lot cheaper though!)
  10. I try to be realistic, rather than too pessimistic or optimistic. But, trying to keep a sense of reality is bloody hard if I spend too much time on Emira forums!
  11. I get what you’re saying but, “Lotus UK Sales Manager says his product is fantastic” shock! I’m not cancelling my order, but c’mon…
  12. You might as well take the seat base out. Very easy. It’s only velcro’d down, but don’t just pull it up. It’s very “sticky” industrial velcro and can rip from the seat pad. (VOE!) Get your fingers underneath and push it up instead. Leaves a nice hard flat shelf for your stuff. Still carpeted though, so the bag is a good idea. While you’re under there, check the emergency boot release is working properly!
  13. Yep. Only awkward bit it getting the cable into the glovebox from behind the headunit.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
