  1. I'm really disappointed, especially after living with the hype of owning one of the first since last July. But the house needs a decent chunk of work doing if we're either to a) love it and stay, or b) hate it and sell it on, and tying up close to £80k in a vehicle seems borderline irresponsible 😆
  2. I've regretfully pulled my deposit today due to the burden that is home-ownership taking priority. I now hope they depreciate very fast so I can get one in a year or two 🤣
  3. I bought EM12RAB after I noticed a few good ones on eBay, including EM12RAA. I might not end up using it just got it in case
  4. That's both awesome and a bit of a shame. I didn't realise how obscenely fast a bone stock (so they told me) Exige could be until the instructor took me on a physics defying ride around the track. It's a shame new customers will miss out on that. That said, I'll probably book onto it for the Emira too
  5. I was having a similar problems with the finance tool, the PX value wasn't feeding into the HP calculation page (even though it showed on the left hand side) but it worked for PCP. I ended up just taking my car out and using the expected value as the customer deposit. PCP was coming out insanely expensive even with a high value trade in (in fact it exceeded the max allowed deposit so they were giving money back) so I think HP is the only valid option in that case, which is what I was expecting.
  6. Cheers for that, it looks like quite a lot has passed me (and many others I suspect!) by. Thankfully I wasn't looking to modify any part of my configuration, just got a little FOMO when I heard others were getting emails 😆 I was looking forward to finance information but given we can drop out at any point until 30 days before delivery there's plenty of time to spin the man-maths and pull out if the numbers don't work out for me.
  7. That may explain it, I didn't ask for any changes. Though if I remember correctly the person said there would be a new link given to a configurator for us make any final changes (which may change the delivery date) and lock in the configuration. I was just expecting an updated version of what we used to pay the second deposit. If they're telling people that their configuration is now locked in perhaps they've decided against that approach. Anyway, roll on w/c 24th, hopefully there'll be a juicy update for us
  8. I've was told in December my car is scheduled for June delivery but haven't had any contact since to confirm my specification. Wondering whether I should bother trying to contact them or just wait it out?
  9. Deposit was morning of 7th July (or whatever the day after reveal was). Cheers
  10. Could you put me in reserve? Planning to order a magma red car. Obviously delivery (and dropout) dependent.
  11. I Googled it as hadn't heard about it myself, but apparently that's now the official name in China. Cheers for that, those are probably the best pictures of it online. Lots of details that you're squinting to see in other images.
  12. This crazy guy may be as close as we get
  13. I wonder if they're now forgoing the phone calls due to the sheer numbers vs the small staff doing the work. Or maybe they noticed that everything they've been saying has been parroted on here multiple times so no need to phone anymore?
  14. Cheers for that, looks to be more than serviceable. Suspect I'll have even more real estate being a comparative short-arse at 5'7".
  15. Personally I don't need much out of a car interior. It just has to be comfortable and ergonomic, and at this price point I like to see some nice materials (which seems to be the case for the Emira). I would have preferred old-fashioned instruments over the TFT dash, though it does give the opportunity to do give useful data to the driver so as long as it's nicely laid out and tells me what I need I don't mind too much. As for the LCD in the centre console, well I think a touch screen in a car is a stupid idea. It sounds like Lotus have tried to keep the important controls as physical buttons which gets my approval (not that they were looking for it!). My overall opinion is; it looks fine. Same for the Porsche. I also quite liked the Evora interior, though the Emira does feel slightly more cohesive, I suppose thanks to them being able to tweak something off-the-shelf from Geely. It may be worth adding that I'm in the minority of people that see the simplicity of the Elise/Exige interior as a good thing.
