  1. So I guess its a case of TADTS. How that got through QC amazes me. The joys of Lotus ownership.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. Saw it on a drive on a new estate. That's two now in Moira. Common as muck!
  7. Yup - been going there for nearly 7 years now. Top bloke.
  8. 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?
  9. Seen yesterday in Moira near Swadlincote. Looked great in blue. Only the second time I've seen an Evora in the wild...
  10. Just a follow up to my now fixed leaking problem if anyone's searching. The leak originated from the windscreen seal behind the A pillar on the passenger side. The water was somehow making its way all the way down and dripping from just behind the glove box. A bit of windscreen sealant and it's dry as a bone.
  11. Thanks for the help. Will check the windscreen seal when I get chance and report back.
  12. It's just leaking when it rains / during car washes - it's been hammering it down this morning. Also, I had the air con drain pipe looked at at my last service, although it was to clean out that one-way valve thingy at the other end.
  13. Now the summer is over and normal service has resumed, I have managed to capture a thrilling video of my leak into the Evora passenger footwell complete with a heavy breathing soundtrack. Anyone have any ideas where it may be originating from?
  14. Thanks for the details explanation @Benmac For anyone else where the reverse collar is loose and doesn't allow you to select reverse, in my case I noticed that you can feel a ring towards the top of the gearstick through the leather boot. Pull that up in the same was as the revers collar and bingo - reverse is selectable!
