  1. Funny how the powers that be will come at you for a small logo infringement which is only seen by a few enthusiasts, is very tongue in cheek and actually pretty well thought out..... but completely ignore the glaringly obvious disgruntlement with the lack of progress and flawed communication with a Scottish dealership which is sitting at the top of the LEGS page. I’m pretty gob smacked and disappointed they’ve obviously read that thread and are literally sticking their fingers in their ears and looking the other way without comment.
  2. What a load of pish. No offense to you Bibs. They told me to ring them back in 4 weeks, in writing. I work with GDPR daily with thousands of registered patients every day and as a small business we have our own assigned data controller. We get in touch with patients daily with correct digital consent gained and stored in our server. I’ve registered with Parks Lotus, I’m happy to receive information from them including telephone or emails so they can let me know as ‘you’re at the front of the Q Andy”, but still they can’t be arsed to get in touch with us directly instead getting you
  3. It’s funny as McLaren Glasgow, under the umbrella of Parks Group, is rated best in the country and they’ve been great at talking to me about a car even though I can’t go and see it yet. They’ve bent over backwards to answer my questions and responded to my emails straight away, discussed movement on price and inclusion of extended warranty deals to be had etc and will deliver all cars under covered car transporter including the services, at no extra cost. The car I’m looking at is only £40k or so more than I spent on the Cup. Makes me think is a Lotus thing, an ingrained mentality from the pow
  4. It’s another 4 weeks minimum until they’re going to be ready. It’s also you call us back, to see if we’re ready to accept cars, rather than we’ll call you! Wow. Its weird as they have just serviced a 430CUP with someone on PH forum Scotland page? All very strange. On the plus side, I’m going to see a man about a 720s.
  5. 6 weeks since my visit to Parks and still no news about them being ready to accept warranty repair work on the Cup. Car is ready to be packed away for winter in a week or two. Bummer!
  6. What are you needing doing? I had a chat with them last week and was told I was high up on the list of getting warranty work done but the set up looked a long way off, as did the showroom.
  7. Nipped in this morning on my day off to discuss warranty saga. Appears it will be sorted pretty soon. I was surprised to see the Evija sitting in the showroom. Was shown round in great detail by the guys from Hethel before their first booking at 1pm.
  8. What is their contact number. Need to get new cover on the Exige 430CUP and also looking for Tesla MXP cover too for my wife and I arriving imminently. Also is there a preferred person to speak to when dealing with them?
  9. Anyone got an email address or contact which works for Parks Lotus?? [email protected] is a dud. ...still nothing Lotus on the website either?
  10. A beauty. Sitting up an unassuming road outside a colleagues Dental Practice in Tollcross Edinburgh.
  11. On foreign plates, way down south most likely just off the ferry from Mallaig. Made me jealous I was in the family wagon.
  12. I agree Stephen. I’ll do Parks as I don’t think the soon to be arriving Model X performance will carry the Lotus on a trailer without needing a top up every 100 miles . (I know-I know before I get EV abuse but the tax benefits are astonishing) I don’t want 500 miles on the CUP. I’ll send a tentative message while I’m up Norf next week.
  13. It saves a grand. Lotus won’t ship the warranty parts to Craig as he’s not approved to diagnose and therefore allow parts release
  14. Serious question!! Have the technicians been properly trained to work on the cars yet? Would you send your car there for a AC condenser unit replacement and belt change? ( Craig said that’s normally an engine out job unless he does it ) Don’t know what to do? Parks or Oakmere
  15. Hi everyone. I’d like to do this to mine. I loved it on the 380 cup. Anyone done it? Simple? Idiots guide anywhere online? thank you.
  16. My undertray bolts were also brand spanking new untouched until CMC did my annual service. Im pretty nervous about sending it for warranty work at Oakmere.
  17. Nice DC 2*** this afternoon. Polwarth. Edinburgh.
  18. Please say CMC, please say CMC, please say CMC, please say CMC, please say CMC, please say CMC, please say CMC............
  19. I have had emails back and forward from Hethel over the lockdown period. They have suggested in one email that things are continuing to move much more slowly than they anticipated. My interpretation of that is ‘don’t hold your breath’ regarding a Scottish solution. They did acknowledge it was poor show for the Scottish contingency though. As a result mine is off to Oakmere for a new drive belt which is an engine out job and a new AC condenser unit. ( I said it wasn’t going to Hayden’s given the posts I’ve seen about them). They’ve looked at CMC’s report which he gave to me and are going to
  20. Two Evoras in one day. BRG 410 at Haymarket behind me on my way back from work then a dark grey or black one on Colinton Road going past my house this evening.
  21. Looking beautiful parked up on the high street this afternoon.
  22. Congratulations. Welcome to the 430 club. I saw a new YouTube video last night which reviews the 430 and ownership brilliantly, different from JayEm’s old one in the yellow one at B&C a few years back. A closing parade of Cups sounds good when the doors finally shut on production, Edinburgh is an excellent location for such an event
  23. Jeez. Unfortunately main deals are not as attentive as Craig it would seem.
