  1. I daily drive mine at the moment (also Hampshire based). Mine is an S and the most I’ve seen is 21.2 mpg. Lovely looking Evora opening poster!
  2. Noticed a rattle has appeared in my car over the last week. As I use it daily at the moment it’s a bit annoying. I think although can’t be 100% sure that I’ve traced it to the centre console which appears to have a little movement. Does anyone know how to tighten this up? It’s an IPS model. Thanks Graham
  3. Mine has started to play up this week as well. Sometimes it works ok but others I just get a dark distorted image. Likely to be the camera? Bit it of a pain as reversing is tricky without the camera.
  4. Wow, prices are on the up
  5. Yours looks great! It took me a while to decide whether to go alcantara on the sides (which I preferred and ended up doing as I like the feel of it!) or go with what Lotus tended to do on their 400 steering wheels and put Alcantara at the top and bottom. Also wondered about the top centre stripe which seems in vogue these days but decided against that in the end, bit apprehensive opening the box but very happy with how it turned out. Yes, me too! Royal's sent me these which may help prolong the life, not sure I can be bothered daily or weekly but will probably do it each time I clean the car. Alcantara cleaning: In order to preserve the beauty of Alcantara it is recommended that regular cleaning is carried out. Daily cleaning: It is sufficient to dust Alcantara using a soft brush, a dry microfiber cloth, or a vacuum cleaner. Weekly/Monthly cleaning: After having dusted Alcantara, run a slightly moistened white cotton cloth over it Run it over the whole Alcantara material, making sure not to wet it excessively; Leave to dry (overnight). Once dried, in order to restore the material, brush it delicately with a soft bristle brush. Avoid the use of printed absorbent cloths/papers as they can release ink onto the material.
  6. Managed to get the re-trimmed wheel fitted yesterday, looks and feels great now, the alcantara matches well with the original lotus alcantara in the sports racer. Top job by Royals, thanks to the opening poster for the recommendation in this thread!
  7. Was going to ask about this as it’s really noticeable, as others have said particularly when reversing on full lock. Was a bit disconcerting at first. My previous Mercedes Cls did it slightly but nothing like as bad as the Evora!
  8. Got my wheel back from Royals today, really pleased with it. Will post some photos when I get it back on the car. Sent you a PM with the cost for the retrim.
  9. My newly retrimmed wheel is due back from Royals tomorrow, will then need to arrange for it to be refitted to my car. Once I’ve done that you are welcome to either borrow or buy the spare steering wheel I used whilst mine has been away. It’s a pre MY-12 one so should be the same as your current one.
  10. Is the auto on the 400 a different box or just a software update on the S1 IPS?
  11. Very nice, must be quite a rare car in the USA.
  12. Looks great, many thanks for the offer however I picked up Colin P’s spare wheel which is now fitted to my car. Will be sending mine off shortly.
  13. Thanks for the links/suggestions, appreciate it. I think given the prices quoted, even second hand with no guarantee it would work (and potential kph/mph issues) I’m just going to live with it. If it deteriorates and I get more lines then I may consider it but for the moment I’m going to save the cash. As mentioned above if Garw did a digital dash I’d be very tempted at that!
  14. Wow! I will draw a red line on with felt tip pen in that case Does anyone know who made them for Lotus? Maybe they can be repaired rather than replaced. Thanks will drop them a mail just in case.
