    Having sold my elise earlier in the year, my evora has now gone too, after 4 years of very happy ownership im sad and happy really, sold it through lotus siverstone on SOR who i can thoroughly recommend , Robert who has taken over from Aime there has stepped right up to the plate. All quite effortless and sold within 4 weeks.. sad because its gone, its a great car to look at, is unusual, & punches well above its weight, in the looks department but i was frustrated with the fact that other than the lovely retrimming i did there was nothing to tinker on it.. it was just too good out of the box.. i also eventually found it a little boring to drive if im honest, please be in mind that this was just a weekend toy to enjoy, im not a high speed freak but just enjoyed driving through the lanes, to get any excitement, its just too fast for this.. 60-70 feels like 30, the ride and handling are far better than the speeds I am prepared to drive at, plus the evora is quite a wide car.. which makes it interesting on little lanes .. The sports ratio gearbox and factory sports exhaust ( both a must in my opinion) did give it a glorious sound and allows working of the box much more , i liked poodling up and down through the gears.. If i had a place of work that i drove too (my office is at home ) i would easy use the evora as a daily, it would be a fantastic daily driver.. and no doubt still in the garage so made the decision to shift it.. I did miss the elise drives , the evora didnt compensate for this.. different cars different uses.. I have a wonderful volvo v90cc and i found myself taking this rather than the evora to motorsport events .. so it was time for it to go.. I had a play in a friends westfield, if youve never driven a seven type car do, they are a total riot, nothing comes close on the road to the experiance of driving one of these mad cars.. so i currently have a westfied in the garage that im playing with , which is keeping me occupied and not noticing my other garage empty of evora, ive also parked a little clio 182 in its space that im also tinkering with.. couple of other thoughts.. this forum is one of the best forums ive been on.. give or take the odd muppet, everyone is fare, honest and funny.. i wont be lotusless for long, its nice looking around seeing whats around.. Whoever got my car has got a good one, it was pampered by me, had some lovely re trim work,. hopefully they will be on here.. Very fortunate that I live near Hanger 111 who have serviced when required, top firm.. ANdy
  14. on my early 2000 elise which i sold ealier in the year, i think lotus quoted this at 134bhp.. would this have been flywheel, if so what roughly does one deduct for wheel bhp.. on an elise and say a new new elise... quoted at 220 bhp this is flywheel too? cheers
  15. cracking car had a spitfire i restored in 91-92 a 1500 with overdrive.. someone cut across the front of me and rode up the bonnet, so under the insurance got a gt6 bonnet with power bulge fitted.. sadly sold it in 2013 when we moved house.. to a classic car company in cyprus who hires it out .. and still has it in operation today...... total death trap if you had a accident in it. i remember doing 95mph pretty much flat out on the a12 slip road as it dropped and passed under a bridge, thinking, shit i hope i did the suspension bolts up.. mine was inca yellow, which attracted the summer bugs like bees to honey, youd come back from it being parked up to see it was an insect zoo loved that car but it became a glorified garage shelf.. would be cool as to still have it now tho.. sad thing is back in early 90s when finished it was worth about 2k for just 4k i could have got into a classic 911 or elan sprint... i still have the clasic car mags where i circled adverts of cars of interest.. sadly the spitty has only gone up a few k compared to what i nearly brought... but i would have sold those too so irrelevant..
  16. just watched your kitty litter video, i dont think much else you could have done there paul, ambition was higher than talant on car 22.. you did well to avoid a crash ... shame your race ended and no doubt he continued...
  17. Thinking of getting one of these, or 7 type car good time of year to pick up a good value one for thoise early morning blasts that i miss having sold the elise in the summer... nearly purchased a 1.6 sigma version, but that fell through plus i actually thought it felt a little slow, compared to my 134 bhp elsie (although stat say it was quicker) so looking for a zetec 2.0 version for about 10.5k thoughts anyone?
  18. i will add this.. the Na. with 3rd cat delete and factory sports exhaust just sounds epic inside the cabin at 3.5k onwards its fantastic just going through the sport gears not in a rapid acceleration way just to get into the sound zone... its quite intoxicating you can do this without having to thrash the motor..with just day to day driving.. feathering the throttle and letting the revs rise.. it really is a nice way to spend time... is there abetter car out there value for money than a loved n/a evora ... i doubt it...
  19. so confirmation the the 400 clutch fits the s1 n/a and s1 s ?
  20. good write up m8.... well done
  21. personally im particular about having the main dealer stamps.. and have avoided certain cars that dont have them.. I wouldnt take the evora anywhere but a decent lotus service centre. i like keeping the service history up to date with a fully stamped book , and would think if i ever came to sell it would be a positive.. but thats just me.. im lucky to a have the excellent chaps at hanger 111 within 30mins , who are very reasonable..£. i like keeping the service history up to date with a fully stamped book , and would think if i ever came to sell it would be a positive.. theres is not much complicated about the standard servicing bar the unusual clutch/brake combination fluid.. swap every two years.. so main dealer/ independant/self is not going to be a extortionate money anyway.. its if other bits pop up, where a lotus dealer will most likely have the experience to resolve quickly, which in the long run will save over a local garage...
  22. another mess the taxholder will end up paying for no doubt, whilst directors and senior management who caused the mess throught poor decisions get off scott free hopefully the govnt will stick two fingers up , and let the biggest shareholder (Chinese) , who have taken the most profit step step up..
  23. that will most likely be a whole new mirror cluster ......... on back order when it goes 🤣
