  1. Couldn’t agree more - recently picked up an NA Evora, had it trucked down to Melbourne, and despite our lockdown I am looking for every excuse to drive! (Technically it’s allowed this time in the lockdown) I haven’t owned that many special cars, this is really the first, but every drive is an occasion and even driving dull roads at low speeds is fun in this car!
  2. Agree with you all about the insanity of the final rankings, but the way I read the article is they were saying the 992 isn't as good as it should be and has fallen off the pedestal as being the one to have? Horses for courses. If you check out the M3 forums (which I recommend you don't!), you'll find a lot of love for the M3 over the Evora. I'm sure you can find people who love a Range Rover over an Evora... they just don't see driving the way we do!
  3. Thanks @Choppa, will give that a go. I note that a 2012 model came up for sale in Oz with what looks like the same model HU, and it also doesn’t show lines - so perhaps they don’t actually exist!
  4. Thanks for the response - yes, handbrake is definitely on, I released it and reclicked it just to make sure. Is there any difference in menus between engine on or off? (I know ignition has to be on to activate the camera)
  5. Hi everyone, thread dig! I’ve got one of the original W505 units and can’t see the guidelines on the reverse camera. Have been through all the menus and pressing the screen while camera is on doesn’t do anything. Any tips? Is there a specific menu I should look at?
  6. Thanks for the warm welcome @ramjet and @jep! Yes, I have definitely enjoyed my RS cars over the years, going on 12 years I think in the Clio and Megane. I hope I will be in a Lotus for at least as many years and probably more! Whilst I've always loved the Esprit (and Elise and Exige etc etc), I am pretty sure I would get my Lotus permission revoked quick-smart if I neglected to include a rear seat for the little one! How often an Evora back seat is actually used to carry baby is quite another matter altogether, though...
  7. Thanks Bibs! I very much look forward to being a true part of TLF once I have secured my Lotus :)
  8. Hi everyone, Just dropping in a line to say hello! Reputation precedes Lotus owners as a personable and enthusiastic bunch so I look forward to being part of a great community. I'm coming across from RenaultSport products; had a Clio 172 and currently selling my RS Megane Cup. I think in terms of philosophy and community, there are quite a few similarities between RS and Lotus. I'm yet to buy my Lotus - a few of you may have seen my Wanted thread, I'm looking for an early model Evora to get into. I found one interstate a couple of weeks back, made enquiries and actually had negotiate
  9. Hi everyone, New member here, upgrading from a Renault Sport Megane. I'm on the lookout for an early model Evora 2+2 (manual), ideally with low k's and in immaculate condition. Launch Edition or with all three option packs specified would be great too. Anyone considering selling one / upgrading in Australia? Preferably eastern seaboard for ease of transportation, or even more preferably in Melbourne. I just missed out on one a couple of weeks ago by about an hour... Thanks all!
