  1. really like the look... planning orange callipers?
  2. Hi Bob, Thanks for posting the above.. interested to hear more about raising the seat height as I hadn't considered that in my list of 'jobs to do'... what did you use for the spacers? Cheers,
  3. that really is a thing of beauty... for me, will have to wait 3-5 years before I'd be in a position to buy one, and it'll be interesting to see what else is available then, but I will be sorely tempted to trade in the Evora...
  4. I registered then have had a couple of emails from Lotus Silverstone, the last one on Saturday inviting me to a livestream launch at their site next Tuesday evening.. tempted.. but just can't make it.
  5. Yes, it will be interesting as you say.. huge amount of work done for a car that's done 6k miles though?
  6. For me it was firstly the look of the Evora, which I still find stunning and I just prefer over the Cayman/911, then its reputation in terms of driving/handling which in the few short test drives I had you don't really find out until you've owned one for a while (almost 6 months now), then it came down to affordability, both in terms of the purchase and on going costs... most of us have limited funds to spend on this sort of car and for me I could just afford an early NA. Interior quality, gizmos's etc were well down the list...
  7. Lovely car... and surroundings!
  8. Agree... great colour, if I hadn't bought a black one in January I'd be contacting you....
  9. Lovely looking car that...
  10. Hi Rob, did you find out what the cause of this might be... I've noticed a rattle somewhere around the passenger windscreen/A pillar trim area when I'm going 70+.... can't see any larked trim though..?
  11. Yep, thanks for this... I thought that would be the case.. and was my plan B if from below was too tricky. Whilst being fiddley it was doable, that being the heat wrap part anyway. I didn't replace the slave cylinder.. want to see if I have any more problems before thinking about replacing the master cylinder.
  12. Did the exact same job this weekend!! Zip tied a fire sleeve round the slave cylinder pipe.. bit of a mission from below. Did you replace the slave cylinder from below or above? I'd be interested in how you get on replacing the master cylinder when you get round to it...
  13. pm'd you... yes the water was getting through the doors.. I had work done under the warranty to have a service bulletin done on the doors and new uprated door seals which are routed differently. Seems to have done the trick...
  14. I've a 2010 NA with Sports/Tech pack but no premium pack.. here is my drivers side sill very wet before I had new door seals fitted!
  15. Agree, though I have been considering whether its timely to upgrade to the boe master cylinder...
  16. I've a 2010 NA and this has just happened to me... 10miles from home, spent 15minutes in a queue of traffic, so stop/start, lots of clutch work etc.. and I lost the clutch pedal to the floor and couldn't engage 1st or 2nd gears. After a mild panic and I don't know whether it just came up by itself or my foot inadvertently lifted the pedal, the pedal came back and all was well and normal and has been since. Looking through this thread and others it seems there are a number of solutions, i.e. heat wrapping the slave cylinder pipe, higher spec fluid and replacing the master cylinder. So I know what I'm dealing with can anyone help with the following: 1. From the attached photo, can anyone tell me whether I have the metal bodied master cylinder that was apparently fitted to my age of car, or whether this is the replacement plastic one. Al lI can see protruding into the foot well is the black top and I'm not sure whether its metal or plastic behind this. I have nothing in any receipts that tell me any work has been done. 2. I've noticed there is wet around the seal and on the push rod.. is this telling me the seal is gone or is it normal to have some wetness? 3. Do I need to take the rear under panel off to see whether my slave cylinder pipe has already been wrapped or am I able to see it from above. I've had a quick look and I'm not really sure where I should be looking and I can't see much? 4. For those who have experienced this, is this an asap job to get done or did you wait for your next service. I'm thinking the former as the car is still under warranty which may cover this? Any help much appreciated, Ade
  17. Yes please, I'd like a pair! Sorry , thought I'd quoted.... Yes please, I'd like a pair!
  18. Just to let folks know that these are not sold anymore... mine are looking 'nasty' - are these the best bet now:
  19. When I was looking to buy, a sales guy at a Lotus dealer told me the Evora (Toyota) engine was made to have an automatic gearbox and so the IPS was a more natural fit, and Lotus had to adapt the design to allow for a manual... is this true or was he just trying to sell me the IPS that was on the forecourt!? I ended up buying a manual from somewhere else...
  20. yes, that white IPS used to be listed at £33k, then down to £30k recently, now up to £32k on there website?
  21. Interesting... just noticed that Lotus Siverstone have just increased the price of its two NA's for sale by £2k!? Are they expecting Evora's prices to rise now they are coming to the end of production?
  22. this has been up for sale a number of times since July I think.. a few from this forum have looked at it including myself who nearly bought it, but in the end decided I needed my first Evora to come with a warranty... and there's nothing wrong with black 😀
  23. 👍 If that is the only reason then great..! I really don't need 2 extra seats, though may affect re-selling it if/when it comes to that....
