  1. Thanks! Glad to know I am not the only one to experience this. I am taking the car in July 2nd for a thorough once over and to have a BOE CAI installed. I am going to have them check the TPMS also. I'll report back afterwards. Thanks again everyone.
  2. Yeah, I thought it would sort itself out too after driving awhile, but this thing is screwy. After purchasing from the dealer (who replaced the tires prior to purchase) I drove for about a week and a half, and put approximately 1000 miles on it. It read: RR=00, RF=31, LR=37, LF=31 Then I messed around with the clock and it switched to RR=37, RF=31, LR=31, LF=00. And since the change, I have driven another week and a half and another 1000 miles. (Lots of joy-riding in the new car ) It's still screwed up. I manually checked the pressures at the wheel, and they match up with the old pressure positions (except the RR, which has 37 and not 00).
  3. Thanks for the replies. I hope you are right cause I felt like I did something stupid.
  4. When I purchased my 2010 Lotus Evora used from a Lotus dealer, they had just put new tires on the car. However, they did not replace a TPMS sensor in the right rear that was reading 00psi. The Left rear read 37psi, and both fronts read 31psi. Of course, the orange low pressure light in the center was also illuminated. As the car came from a different time zone, the clock was wrong. I started trying to fix the clock by pushing end of the turn indicator stick without success. Being a new Lotus owner, and realizing that I had no idea how to fix the clock, I read through the manual. Needless to say, I managed to set the clock. However, I noticed that I somehow changed around the pressure locations for all the tires. They used to read: LF=31psi LR-37psi RR=00psi RF=31psi Now they read: LF=00psi LR=31psi RR=37psi RF=31psi The manual does not address how to fix this. I'm not even sure how I did it. I tried searching old forums threads, but could not find any that specifically addressed this issue. Maybe I am the first person stupid enough to have done this. Any ideas?
  5. Was at a petrol station today. Man came up to look at the car and then this exchange happened: Man: "Wow, that is nice!....Lotus?!?!?!.....What is that, some kind of Porsche?" Me: "Uhhhh, no.....It's a LOTUS!"
  6. Why invest in an imitation when you can have the original? That what I asked myself when I decided to abandon my Resto-mod Fiero build and purchase my first Lotus. My name is Ed, and I am from Indiana. I have always wanted a Lotus, but thought they were out of my price range. For the last several years, I had been building a custom 88 Fiero into a modern version of what it could have been if Pontiac have managed the project better. I realized, everything I was doing to the Fiero, a Lotus Evora already had. And seeing as GM copied the suspension of the 88 Fiero from a Lotus, I realized I was wasting my time on a knock off. Not to mention, buy the time I finished the build, I would have invested as much in the project as I would have purchasing a nicely used Evora. At the end of the day, I still would have had a Fiero, which would have been worth considerably less then I had invested in it. I finally did something smart and purchased a nicely used low mile 2010 Lotus Evora. And I could not be happier.
