  1. What are your best experienced Öhlins damper settings (Front/ Rear clicks counterclockwise from max COMP and max REB) in relation to certain race tracks?
  2. Hi Marius, congratulations and happy to have an additional Evora mate in Germany! Great choice ...
  3. to be found on German ebay https://www.ebay.de/itm/Original-Lotus-Evora-400-Sitze-LH-RH-Leder-Alcantara-Sitzheizung-Sparco-NEU-/324070630115
  4. We always bring our own cars and hire the race tracks through our car clubs exclusively for us for the whole day. The same we did with Spa-Francorchamps this week again.
  5. Great experience on the race track Anneau du Rhin where Mario Ketterer a former race driver teached me on an Evora GT430 how to treat this beast properly - still a lot to learn for me. Huge thanks to Mario for this incredible tutorial and fun!
  6. Spending an ACF-50 winter treatment it is worth admiring the magic components ...
  7. Prefer the original plastic diffuser a lot. It is much better integrated and serves the stealthy darkness of the rear. The later aluminum diffuser makes the rear restless with fragile Elise plate works.
  8. In deed, the GT430 Sport/GT430 story is a very paradox one. Before ordering my GT430 Sport I went through all the same considerations as The Pits did. The beautiful line and elegancy (the air vents in the front wheelarch you can not get rid of with a GT430) and the way I use it made me decide on the Sport. My dealer and I, we realized that there will be only a very small time window for ordering this exotic from Lotus factory with personal specifications. Therefore, I ordered mine immediately at beginning of October 2017. The prediction was that all the GT430s will be sold out very quickly an
  9. Here is a collection of the super rare Evoras GT430 Sport as far as I could find and trace them
  10. Proposal to come out of the deadlock: 1. Make your Brexit with or without deal. 2. Get promise from EU that Mr. John Bercow will become President of the European Commission if you return. 3. Hold a referendum about a Breturn.
  11. The discussion going on here made me remember of an article I read in a leading Swiss newspaper lately. Therefore, I translated it into English and I think it might be interesting within two active topics, that’s why I will post it twice. Comment by Roman Bucheli in Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ) 19.12.2018 What the hell is going on with the men? Is the man a discontinued model? Or has he simply not yet made the leap into the modern age? His attachment to outdated self-images is a symptom of a prolonged crisis. Where is David Cameron? Where did he go? No former British Prime Mi

  13. Well, it is like getting asked by your wife: Do you want to remain being married with me or do you want to leave? Sure, you can walk just out of the house but there were some treaties signed by both parties before. Usually both, at least one party, and for sure legislation wants to dissolve and terminate the marriage mostly in conjunction with a deal.
  14. Completely I agree with you @C8RKH , our consumer preferences and criticism about modern cars are 100% congruent. However, I see the problem with old farts like you and me (sorry for taking you into kin liability) since not only the car models, we as a market are aging. If I were boss with Porsche twenty years ago I would have fired that guy and sent him to psychological treatment coming up with the idea to build that Cayenne SUV – see, I am the one who may need such a treatment. I think the up-to-date way is not ours but paved well with all your above mentioned ‘goodies’ we dislike.
  15. I still do demand EU, especially Mrs. Merkel, to provide you with an appropriate parachute which you must not leave behind, no matter what the outcome will be next week!
  16. Sure, the 17 others must be vehicles not properly registered under their precise model description. Therefore, most of them must belong to the three main models. Really strange is the fact that in the official KBA-statistics of 2018 for Lotus you can find one car registered under Diesel and two cars as four-wheel drive – or is all this a hint from secret new vehicle design and developments under Geely test driven already? Going to our state registration agencies in Germany with a new Lotus it is always more or sometimes less funny how they try to “press” the data of the COC on a form un
  17. My sincere condolences Lee. Alex will live forever in your hearts and memories. Take your time for your grief and I wish you all the necessary strength for the time being.

  19. I have sound insulation in my GT430 Sport (manual) and whilst easy going on B-roads or on the Autobahn at ‘normal speed’ it is marvellous, especially between 100–150 km/h you realise that aerodynamic is pushed to the extreme with the GT430. Wind noise is less than in a Mercedes coupé. Even on long distance trips across Europe with 800 km across the Alps in one day it is enjoyable easygoing and you will arrive very relaxed. Of course, you can have pleasing outbursts beyond 4.500 rpm with best sounding I have ever heard from a V6. Compared with an Exige 380 or Exige 430, I had driven, it is a lo
  20. Dear Lee, I am touched reading your posts. My wife and I, we are thinking of you and your family a lot and we are talking about what you might go through now. We like to share our personnel experience that might be of some orientation for you. My wife’s father died of lung cancer when he was around your age leaving the family behind with four children. Still decades after her father’s death my wife is not happy with the behaviour of her mother who kept the children away from their suffering and decaying father during the final stage. Of course, there were very unpleasant occurrences
  21. May small glowing candles on our Christmas tree send some light to you during this dark season. We will be thinking of you these days.
  22. With this post I may risk getting tarred, bounced and banned from TLF because you might think it is impertinent when a German gives his comment about this very internal British topic. But we are all Europeans still together in EU and I think this matter is so important, much more important than our common interest in Lotus, that I like to let you know my personal deep concernment and a point of view from outside UK. Reading all your comments, your anger, fear and frustration I can assure you I do share a lot of this points of view with you. However, in your posts I can identify quite s
