  1. Here is a pic of my GT
  2. Similar story here.... loved the Esprit for 35 or so years...just last week I finally have a Lotus in my garage. Living in the states I have a new 2021 GT, truly an amazing car! I was debating on getting a esprit but was worried I couldn’t drive it reliably like I want to, kinda daily driver with some track days and the old esprit really had me worried. JayEmm is actually who turned me onto the evora i take my GT in for it’s 1,000 mile first service this week, have a few small issues but no regrets. The sound this car makes and the way it feels is truly amazing!
  3. Esprit - always wanted one, just worried trans is to weak to properly use car and it’s to old/fragile for daily use elise/exige - worried the car is a bit to hard core for a daily driver, i still play soccer/football at 50+, worried about getting in the car after a good game. Giulia QV -really liked driving the car, worried about expensive repairs and didn’t need a 4dr sedan. Poor dealer network for a mass market brand evora wasn’t really on my radar, was never a big fan of the early evora’ s. JayEmm’s video’s really peaked my interest on the car as well as pretty much every o
  4. If it was me, I wouldn’t trust them, tires are cheap, fixing a car due to a blowout can be quite expensive. 7 years is the longest I would trust a tire, beyond that and bad things can happen actually several years back I was driving my hearse to the airport to pick up a client, fortunately I wasn’t loaded. One tire on my hearse blew its tread, took some body panels with it. Tires were 8yrs old, always garage kept and less then 20k miles of use, At that time I was swapping tires every 10 years, now I am following RV recommendations and swapping tires at 7yrs. due
  5. Also like to see before/after chart, impossible to know the actual gains without a before and after run
  6. According to front 370mm x 32mm, rear 350mm x 32mm)
  7. Being a “Mercan” I take offense to that we do not have a team in every state, that’s why it’s the World Series..... if there was a team in every state obviously it would be called something different ..... like universe series. seriously though, pretty crazy some of the crap that goes on here.... baseball has always been one of the least favorite sports and I never understood why the final game is called what it is. ps- presently RV shopping (American Eagle or Tradition) to pull my jeep and a yet to be purchased Evora
  8. HethelSport lists the following on their site “Our latest item, Adjustable Anti-Roll Bar Drop-link Kits will be available soon too!” not a clue when it will be ready, price and all that.
  9. Have you ever owned a white car? Man do believe it’s hard to keep clean. It’s actually a LOT easier to keep clean vs dark colors, especially black. I have never liked red wheels on cars.... saw a white GT with red wheels at Gator MS, wow did it look incredible!
  10. Living in the states.... those “jokes” about Americans and straight roads is true, usually that road is 1/4 mi long. Thus you have the camaro, mustang and a few others. The majority w/o a doubt are into drag racing, it’s a American thing like those super boring american sports like NASCAR & baseball. We do have some incredible twisty roads however the vast majority, want straight line speed. In regards to the 400 front end vs others.... for me the first gen of the evora did nothing to me, it wasn’t until the 400 was released that I was interested in the car. I did see the U
  11. Sounds nothing like the music I play at my Funeral home! lol

    Really sad that people are getting their parties in a wad with the US spec GT being posted here especially with all the work and money that’s been dumped into it. yea technically it’s not one but who really cares..... then again I live in the states and hope to get a GT this spring since that’s our only option.

    I watched the 5min version of the head 2 head video, for those of us who do not have the paid motor trend channel I think it’s all we can presently watch. the 5 min version was pointless, not worth watching. Camaro threw a belt before anything could be tested. Hopefully the long version will be available for everyone to watch soon
  14. I have read that before, I just wonder how much of it is lotus marketing.... or if the GT/430 wheel are vents make up the bulk of the additional front downforce? &/or if adding a splitter to the 400 front end would balance the 430 spoiler.
  15. How much more downforce does the CF GT bumper create vs our US spec front end?
