  1. All, The wire from the front access panel release lever was disconnected when I bought my car recently. (See attached) Is it fairly straight-forward to re-attach? Do these break? I pulled on the cord to see if I could manually release the bonnet access panel, but nothing has happened. I'm now worried that by pulling it, I've generated too much slack so the release lever won't work if I reconnect it. Any help or guidance appreciated! Day 8 of Lotus ownership, and I'm already starting to repair bits 😄 Though to be fair, it was like that when I got it...
  2. Did anyone else notice that the matte black one in Scotland (previously called Dexter) disappeared off Autotrader this weekend? You reckon some idiot was mad enough to travel an approx 500mi trip to buy a car unseen and drive it all the way home? ... On an entirely unconnected note. Does anyone have any recommendations for cleaning products for matte black paint? 😉
  3. I've been in touch with the chap who was selling @Barrykearley's Lotus, who has confirmed he took a deposit this afternoon. Proof that sub-£30k Evoras don't hang around long!
  4. Was that back in Nov? How much did it sell for at the time? I think I saw someone else post recently that he's trying to sell it for more than you sold it for?
  5. Couple of new listings on Evoras: £39k, 2014 Manual Sports Racer wtih 25k. Recently bought in Feb 21 from Will Blackham, but the owner is looking for an Auto due to health reasons. £28.5k, 2009 Manual Launch Edition with 21k. New&onesearchad=Used&radius=1500&sort=price-asc&am
  6. I live a fairly short hop for Bell and Colville, so unfortunately ES aren't too local. Tbh, I think I'd be much more comfortable with an unmodified car, but always good to keep an open mind.
  7. I've dropped them a line about it, but haven't ever bought a modified car. It's definitely something I'd need to fully understand before committing.
  8. Posts on here and the Lotus Forum suggest that the white Evora IPS at Silverstone has been there a while (1yr or more?). What's wrong with it? Is it poorly spec'd? Or poorly priced? Is it the fact that it's an Auto, rather than a Manual? Sure, the price has gone up by £2k recently, but even when it was £30k it wasn't bought. Have Silverstone just got the pricing wrong on this one? Or is it that undesireable?
