  1. I'm planning to pop along to Stratton Motors next Friday to take a peek at the Evija. I have a theory about cars in photos and real life: Dull cars look better in photos/on video than in real life. Exciting cars look better in real life and photos/video just can't capture the drama.
  2. Nope, that's just a wide angle lens on a crappy phone distorting the back end. I have some gorgeous 8K(!) RED camera footage here showing that exact yellow car looking nicely proportioned at the back. And no, I'm not going to post any of it here!
  3. I said there would be a yellow one appearing soon! I worked on that video !
  4. This colour scheme might be making an appearance in a video soon.
  5. One thing that baffles me about the development of the Evija is the complete absence of any spy shots or similar anywhere on t'internet. It's quite normal to see photos pop up of forthcoming models, usually disguised with lumpy bodywork, being tested in varied conditions around the world. Are we to assume that the Evija either hasn't been tested on the open road at all, or is so well disguised that people think they're looking at some other car? Is Lotus just gong to rely on its customers to do the testing? As much as I love my Elise, the niggles do bother me occasionally, but I can live with
  6. My Ctek MXS3.8 arrived today. I've connected the adapter cable to the battery, and saw that a previous owner had presumably done something similar...when I thought "how shall I feed the cable out through the battery box?" I noticed a perfectly-sized square hole cut into it to feed the cable through! I tested out the mains cable routing, and it appears that the rear lid will close perfectly with the cable fed out through the seal, thanks in part to those Lotus panel gaps! The next job is to route some mains power so I don't have to have an extension lead sprawling all over the place.
  7. I've got a Ctek charger on its way to me - I'll update this post on how well it performs. (Just need to drill through an external wall, run a cable, install a fused isolator and external socket now...!)
  8. Hello, I'm sure many of us are in a similar situation at the moment - Lotus sitting there, eagerly waiting for somewhere to go! So I'm looking to get a trickle charger - my battery has gone flat twice in the past year (luckily when the car's been at home). So I'd like to get a trickle charger, but would like to find one with a lead permanently connected to the battery, so I can open the bonnet and plug the charger in, rather than trying to crocodile-clip it on to the battery under its cover. Can anyone recommend any suitable chargers that have this? I'm happy to have the lead just danglin
  9. Have I stumbled into a forum full of Daily Mail-reading tories? Why would anyone possibly not hate Johnson? He basically had two things to do in this crisis: Isolate people (herd immunity - remember that?) Provide the NHS with what they need (ventilators from the EU, anyone?) He's failed on both counts. Does nobody here realise he is killing people? I think a little hate in his direction is the least we can do.
  10. If you're expecting a big reaction to your "Boris tested positive" post, I think most people's reaction is either: Meh. Good. Hope it dies. Really? I thought Covid-19 only infected humans. Lazy lying bastard - bet it hasn't got it and is just using it as an excuse to do bugger all. Interesting how one of the least vital people in the country manage to get tested while our emergency workers are abandoned.
  11. I'm a self-employed sole trader. Yes, I could declare things illegally as expenses, and yes, I could just lie about my income. But I don't, because I'm not a c**t. I am regularly contaced by 'umbrella companies' offering convoluted, semi-legal methods to circumvent taxes. I'd rather not. I make, when the work comes in, a decent living. Sometimes I have no work for weeks, sometimes I'm working 14 hour days to keep up. Unsurprisingly, work has completely evaporated now, but I still need to pay the mortgage, bills and feed myself and the dog. Yes, there are certainly arseholes cheating the s
  12. Nope. Just no. You going to start on faked moon landings next?
  13. Probably genuine, but even if it's attention seeking, this girl needs all the attention she can muster to get her message across to everyone. In my opinion she can do no wrong and should be promoted to Queen of the World and put in charge of pretty much everything (she'd certainly do an infinitely better job of running the UK and the USA instead of our current idiots!).
  14. I'd combine it with something useful - I'll be getting some groceries for some people in my street, but just taking a slightly longer route perhaps.
