  1. Hey guys,

    I bought a digital rear view mirrow a few days ago and want to install it this weekend. It has two camera's, one looking to the front, directly integrated in the mirror and one wired to a camera that can be put anywhere else in the rear of the car. It also has a GPS tracking function with an additional sensor and can record videos from both camera's, saved to a SD card.

    If anyone else is interested, it was this model (it looks great live, I will take some pictures and update the thread):


    What would be the best place to guide the wires to those points (and how to remove the pillars/headlining?):
    a.) from the mirror to the 12V cigarette lighter port
    b.) from the mirror to the dashboard (for the GPS sensor)
    c.) from the mirror to the rear end of the car. There would be three possible positions I think. One would be inside the car (already better view than the OEM mirror, tested it yesterday), mounting the camera directly to the small inner rear window. The other position would be inside the engine room just right behind the window. Third position would be the original reverse camera location in the bumper (best view, but most pain to wire everything).

    For the two positions in the back I have already seen that the OEM loom has some grommets, (2x LHS, 1x RHS) from the engine room to the interior. I would prefer the one on the RHS.



    I have special plastic tools to remove the interior trim, but it's the first time on the Evora so some guidance would be very appreciated 🙂

  2. I was on the scale today to get the actual weight of the car.

    1442 kg with full tank (60l ~ 44kg), handbooks/manuals, first aid kit, etc.

    If you substract those things you get exactly the 1395 kg mentioned by Lotus.

    As I was at the workshop of a friend that builds rally and race cars, I also discussed a quick solution to get the exhaust quiet when going on the race track. He will try to build something that can be fitted directly to the tailpipe within some minutes.

    If you want to secure the car but not set the alarms you need to lock the doors manually, either by pressing down the lock button and holding the handle up as you shut it or by using the key in the door lock. The immobiliser will arm itself but the alarms won't be set.

    I know this is a super old thread, but would this also solve the problem of a draining battery caused by the active alarm system? 

  4. Update about the brakes. I hope these type numbers may help somebody.

    Only pad type (shape) numbers. Friction material (like DS2500 etc) is an additional letter/number.

    Front Pads:
    AP Racing: CP7040D61 -
    Ferodo: FRP3084 (Friction material number for DS2500 would be "H") -
    Pagid: 4345 -

    Rear Pads:
    AP Racing: CP6600D55 -
    Ferodo: FRP3083 (Friction material number for DS2500 would be "H") -
    Pagid: 4345 -

  5. Yes.
    It is explicitly mentioned in the CoP that this is no Hethel Edition. There were some more things missing on the car when it was delivered from Lotus: only standard alloy wheels, no stripes (very interesting), no sub-woofer, no build plate. And the car was built before there even was a Hethel Edition.

    Certainly looks like it. Seeing as most owners have removed the Hethel Edition decals it is difficult to imagine that someone would have added them :).

    But exactly that happened 😄 I just read through the CoP and it mentions that this is the only 2016 Essex Blue LHD car in Europe that is no Hethel Edition.
