  1. Hi AD, When you say you’ve had a look do you mean seen the cars in the flesh or seen the adverts ? Only asking as if it’s the former, is there anything you didn’t like which may be useful to others who are also looking ? Good luck with your hunt
  2. I noticed that the two 400’s that Silverstone had are no longer on their website, I suppose both could have sold at a similar time but realistically I think that’s unlikely. I think one (if not both) were on SOR and the owner is on here, would be interesting to know if they have been sold or maybe removed from sale ? Can anyone recall who’s cars they are ?
  3. It would be useful to know why you prefer the PS4S compared to the CUP 2’s ? I did often wonder why Lotus fitted the CUP 2’s to cars in the UK, with the weather being pretty wet and cold for around 5 months a year I assume it’s rather difficult to generate sufficient heat in them a lot of the time 😳
  4. That is definitely a nice improvement very classy IMO 😎
  5. Is there any reasoning as to “when they’re gone” on an Evora 🙄 as on my previous cars I found that a battery could be revived/life extended sometimes for a long time by putting it on charge for a decent duration.
  6. That was a bargain for someone, must have been the cheapest 400 I’ve seen, just goes to show if they are priced competitively then they do sell really quickly.
  7. Welcome Hughesy I came into Evora ownership from a Ph.2 Clio v6 myself 😀, the Vee is a very special car indeed. The Evora is a great choice to move onto, it’s easier to drive quickly than the Vee, certainly not as raw it’s a bit quicker but not night and day difference performance wise. Good luck with selling your Vee 👍, I sold mine on really quickly 😎
  8. What’s SOET ? F1 hasn’t been up to much for years, I still watch but I’m not sure why quite often. These days I prefer GT racing and MotoGP.
  9. Yeah thanks @agentdr8 hopefully I’ll be able to get it sorted very soon
  10. I do have the pin code for mine, having read the manual it seems straightforward to program the key, NOT. So maybe I should go to a dealer who knows the process regarding sorting this out, unless someone can offer an easy translation of what it says in the manual. I’ve ordered one of those “key finder” gadgets today - bit late I suppose but hopefully I will be able to locate a key if it happens again, which probably won’t. Any idea how much this is likely to cost at a dealer ? I’m quite prepared for a bit of wallet lightening, but I’d rather not keel over with shock when at the
  11. Hi everyone, Somehow I’ve lost one of my keys. Can someone please advise the best course of action to get a replacement ? I’ve tried one of the local mobile key replacement places and was told they can’t get hold of the blanks. So I can either contact a dealer (car was supplied new, but not to me, by Lotus Silverstone), or is it just better/easier to go to Lotus direct ? Cheers
  12. I’ve been doing some detailing on the car today and noticed that the plastic bit under the mesh of the side scoop is looking a little in need of some black plastic cleaner (I’m really fastidious). Does anyone know if there‘s an easy way to remove the mesh in order to access the plastic piece ? My guess is that there probably isn’t, in which case how can this piece be cleaned please ? I’m a bit reluctant to try and do it with a small artist’s brush through the mesh in case it turns out looking rubbish. Cheers
  13. I had the same issue a few weeks ago, this is how I sorted mine. Activate the washers as normal so you can see them spraying in the raised position then quickly turn the ignition key to the off position leaving them in the high position. Have a look inside the assembly and you can the see the plastic rail that moves up and down, I gave the rail a clean and squirted some WD40 onto it, operate the washers a few times and apply some more WD. It didn’t work immediately but the next day everything worked just fine, and they have continued to do so. I’m hoping that this will have sort
  14. It may be worth checking your postcode risk rating, if it’s low then would that put your mind at risk somewhat and maybe consider the drive option as not being so unpalatable ? It seems there are quite a few who aren’t fortunate enough to have a garage, (myself included) as long as the drive option wouldn’t give you sleepless nights then I’d say go for it. The pleasure of ownership has got to be high on the list for myself, hence my decision to go ahead with getting my Evora.
  15. Here’s to hoping it’s going to be a decent race, although I’m usually thinking that and end up rather disappointed. It’s looking like it’ll be a Mercedes stroll in the park, but we can at least see some racing at last.
