  1. Hi Greg, Thanks for the info. If you can send me details of the event that would be great. Bernard
  2. Hi, I hope someone will be able to help me..... I have just purchased my first Lotus, a starlight black Evora and I just love to sit in it never mind drive it!! The previous owner has recommended the car shampoo to use, which is Meguiar Gold Class but I wondered if anyone could recommend the wax I should use? I'm hoping to wash it asap, rain showers pending of course. Thank you
  3. Thanks for the replies. Yes I did find this website but they are based near the Lake District and I'm in Kent so no good for a short term hire unless I'm going up North! Was really looking for somewhere in the South.
  4. Hi, Does anyone know where I can hire a Lotus Evora auto for a week? Perhaps someone here would hire out their Evora to 2 very careful drivers! I've tried Google but no luck and I see on TLF that Hertz were hiring out Lotus cars but that was back in 2011 and they are no longer doing this. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you Bernard
  5. Yes thank you for the information. The drawing highlights my possible problem. Anyway, I haven't sourced a car as yet but on the lookout. I can't see any reply, did you receive the email?
  6. Hi Bibs I did send message via PM system, did you receive it ok?
  7. Many thanks. Sorry, but what's the PM system and how do I access it!?
  8. Thanks thats very kind of you. How do we arrange this, there is no rush.
  9. Hi, that would be absolutely great, many thanks. The feedback I've had is all very positive so if you'd like to pop over thats really very kind of you. We live in the Talmead Estate. Whereabouts are you then?
  10. Thanks, no problem. I've got a spare duvet so will use this!! Great thank you. Love the car and the plate. My drive is 3m wide and the car is 2m wide. I just wanted to make sure I had enough width that allows the car door to open enough that would allow me to get out without needing an op! Hi, yes the drive has a wall on either side. Its 3m wide so I just wanted to make sure I could open the door enough to be able to get out without needing an op!
  11. Thanks to you all, that's great. Just need to sort out a car port now as we can't have a garage built. This should make a few of you wife and I went to Bell and Colville earlier this year (I felt like a kid in a sweet shop...I want this one and that one etc..!). I was concerned about keeping the car outside and wondered if the weather would affect the car ( I intend to use it as often as possible), the very nice man said I need not worry - look outside, these are parked there all year round in all sorts of weather! I felt a bit of a muppet really! Bernard
  12. Hi, This is my first time on a forum so I hope I've set it up correctly. Here goes....I've always fancied a Lotus but never been in the position or the timing has not been right to purchase one. Now I'm looking to buy an Evora later this year. 1. However, there is a 'small' problem. My drive, the pavement and the road are all on 3 very slightly different levels and I've no idea if an Evora would scrape its bottom because of the angle between each surface. Hope this makes some sense and is not a load of gibberish! The nearest dealer is like 60 miles away and I don't know anyone who owns an Evora who could perhaps test this out to see if I can get one onto the drive. I've attached a photo of my current 1 series Beamer so you can can see what I'm talking about. Would any Evora owner be willing to visit me to test this out, not expecting you to damage your car of course! Would love to chat about all things Lotus/Evora with a another enthusiast and I'd be willing to pay your petrol costs. I live in Herne Bay in Kent! 2. Could anyone tell me the width of an Evora door? My drive is 3m wide so I need to make sure there is enough space so I can get in and out! Thanks, Bernard
