  1. Amazingly, I managed to find the Holy Grail and some Esso high octane stuff this afternoon. Can @Bibs PM me Rachel's contact info now please?
  2. Last Thursday the petrol light came on in the Evora. I went to fill up as usual, but it seems the four horsemen of the apocalypse have emptied the local petrol stations. It's my daily driver, and peddling around on my bike is getting old fast. My question is, what happens if I fill up with normal petrol? I always used BP Ultimate, but I reckon I've got more chance of waking up next to Rachel Riley than finding some of the high octane stuff.
  3. Thanks for the info. Well, at 7 hours for JAWS I think you can at least double that for me. Once I get the brackets I think it's off to Gav at Unit 4...
  4. Gave the car a well needed wash today, and it appears the mud flaps are flapping a bit too much! @Miguel can we still buy yours from anywhere? Also, can anyone weigh in on how easy they are to fit for an 'enthusiastic amateur'?
  5. Give Gavin a call at Unit 4 in Burton. He's an ex Lotus / TVR mechanic and has looked after my Lotus for the last 8 years since I moved to the area. He's the dogs danglers and very well regarded in the Lotus community.
  6. Actually there's two in Moira. The yellow one you mention (still haven't seen the owner although I cycle past his house with the kids most weekends) and mine. Common as muck round here.
  7. So I guess its a case of TADTS. How that got through QC amazes me. The joys of Lotus ownership.
  8. Something that's niggled me for the last three years is my 2011 Evora S clock loses a few minutes a month from the dash clock. The Evora is quick, but I don't think I'm going quite fast enough to explain time loss through Einstein's special theory of relativity. Does anyone else have this issue?
  9. My wife is 5' 6" 1/2 (she also always adds the 1/2 on 😉 ) and she can drive the S1 no probs. Seems to be quite a few tall Evora drivers here. I'm 6' 5", and although I have the seat fully back I fit just fine. Then again, I daily drove an Elise for 10 years so the Evora is like a F150 to me.
  10. Also, feel the fabric bits on the inside of the windscreen at the bottom of the a pillars. I was getting wet carpets and it was working its way down behind the dash from a bad windscreen seal. I didn't notice that the fabric was getting wet for ages, and the car used to mist up something rotten in the winter. People must have thought I was getting frisky in there...
  11. Well, I'm the owner of the other one so I guess I'm on the forum 🙂 I take the kids on bike rides past his house fairly often, so if I see him I'll have a chin wag and mention the forums.
  12. Saw it on a drive on a new estate. That's two now in Moira. Common as muck!
  13. Yup - been going there for nearly 7 years now. Top bloke.
  14. Saw it from a distance, but looked like an S1 sports racer in a deep blue. I was in mine but I don't think they noticed me?? Maybe Persian blue?
  15. Seen yesterday in Moira near Swadlincote. Looked great in blue. Only the second time I've seen an Evora in the wild...
