    Sure... mine is IPS and maybe 50% of the GT430s. And it’s revised, quicker and comes with a cooler. Way better than the Evora S or the 400 I owned before.

    I wish Lotus made sexier changes to the Interior of the GT430, but I would choose it over any GT3 or 570s everyday! Even over a 720s, which i drove on road and on track: i know it is much faster, but it is less macho and less emotional than a GT430. this is my car, shot by a professional without my knowledge

    Yes indeed. I attended the Lotus 70’s Anniv but failed to meet any of you guys. Hopefully one day, we do a GT430 parade when they are “collection cars” abt the Komotec... I doubt I would be interested. A 500 hp upgrade and an LSD would be more worthy the pain, cuz this car can handle much more power than it has in its stomach right now. I believe it is abt time they seriously consider a DC gearbox also. GF

    My GT430 is Auto. Compared to my precious 400 auto gearbox, it is sharper and faster in gear changes and more accurate. This difference is more prominent after 20mn pushing on track on private road. Quite happy with it for now, but not equal to PDK by any means. Yet, I prefer it over a PDK for its brutality and its sounds on downshifting! GF
  5. I have set them in summer for Road use, 30F/33R (cold) but in winter they r dropping lower. Should I increase them?
  6. Guys, do you know the recommended Tyres (F/R) pressures for the GT430 for track, on a sunny day?

    In fact the 400 had an Exhaust Valve Button, which I always left switched On (valve open). but also in my GT430, I had the same button installed and they did the necessary ECU mapping. It works same as on 400. Sound is amazing specially at high revs. But there are no backfires (or quiet one) on slow rev downshifting. I did notice though, that combustion is much more optimized on my 430 then the 400 MY16 (maybe that is the reason?) and no MAF sensor issues till now (unlike 400). any ideas?

    Having owned a 400 Auto for 2 years and now a GT430 Auto for 2 months, I can objectively say that there is a significant improvement in the gearbox itself, which was already quite good with exquisite sound on the 400. Compared to a PDK, it is slower without being laggy or slow at all; but, it is much more enjoyable than the PDK at medium revs, and the changing sound is way sexier! Compared to the 400’s it is a bit faster, more consistent and smoother. Do not forget also, the gearbox cooler in the 430. Other than that, I have a question for you guys. On my 400, I had very nice backfire sounds when downshifting at low speed, which I don’t have now on my 430 (600km only on odometer). Any idea or thoughts? gracie

    They stay like that all the time while driving, then they zero when I switch it off

    Evora GT430

    The 2 gauges got stuck! When I turn it off, they go down, when I put ignition On, they go up and stay! Any idea?!! also did anyone find the Alpine Connect app on Apple store? Cause I did not!

    It will be Xpel Stealth PPF for matte changes 4-5% of the original shades I think

    Evora GT430

    Guys, who had gone for full PPF on his GT430? And how much it costs in average? I have a Charcoal Matte paint (semimatte in fact) and the remaining in Glossy Carbon as usual. Would you advise full PPF or just front bumper? Cost average on matte? thx for ur feedback
  18. Hakim0v

    Evora GT430

    Guys what do you think about the Glossy Black Machine rimmed wheels on the GT430 Vs the Matte Black ones? It seems all of us chose the Glossy ones... but I believe Lotus (or the provider) could have done better on the design, no?

    The Rear diffuser on that GT430 (not the Sport), is the Standard one or the Aluminium more pretuberant one?

    You are most welcome Mark! Quite calm and no issues from Syria. We do many rides, I can let the dealer help you with that, if u like. There are no Exige Cup 430 in here yet, but there is 1 Cup 380 and few older models. Regarding my GT430, it will be the Only one, and that pleases me quite well... I will post some photos as soon as I get it... soon... Goin to Dubai next week for few days, so hopefully will receive my car as soon as I am back to beirut.

    Evora GT430

    Seems many guys are upset or ranting for one reason or another... i am expecting delivery of my GT430 in one week now in Beirut, crossing my fingers. Do you have certain infos about changes in te Rear Diffuser of GT430? Or you meant the Aluminium one on the GT410 sport? cuz Lotus answered me 2 weeks ago, that the one on my GT430 is carbon fiber and the Aluminium one can be fitted instead but it wouldn’t be a super idea...
