  1. Ah cool. Look out for when I get my full exhaust system and you can pop round and hear it! 😄
  2. AH, you are in Weybridge near me. You may have seen me in one of my car terrorising the high street then. 😄
  3. It is a stealth PPF. Took away a lot of the metallic fleck. I was a bit taken aback at first glance. However, in the flesh, it really does something amazing with the curves. People were loving it at Supercar Fest. At some point, it will be next to the original colour, or many of them, and perhaps stand out! we will see. Ah yeah. I got diverted after a road closure I think. Was I speeding? I took it easy on the way home. Alas, I still have not got my full exhaust system - missing a needed part so will go back for fitting in 2 weeks or so.
  4. Fine now. I am getting the whole car checked at B&C anyway - needs an update, pad looked at and the usual electrical gremlins.
  5. Ah ha! M1 or M25? I was at Donnington on my first track day! I will paste in what I put in the EF. This is me, much relieved after surviving the track day unscathed. Yeah , yeah... I know.... You thought this was Tom Cruise in Top Gun on the runway. 😬 I will go into the details , with full track action, in the video but, in short: The car is a weapon around bends - even on Goodyears Acceleration out of bends is not amazing BUT the grip helps out Missed a few gears - of course Engine gets hot! Makes a great noise Hits the rev limited A LOT! The brakes start off great and go downhill fast - well, they seem to lose their bite but you do stop, just a tad scary I don't like other cars around me Oh, and the most important thing... NO CAYMANS OVERTOOK ME
  6. Yes, that will be what happens to over half of Emira owners. I do actually think you will NEVER get the value back from doing a PPF. It is not about that. If they can live with the blemishes than that is great. I couldn't. If I had the black-pack gloss roof, I would, at the very least, PPF that. When we have a few hundred cars with over 2500 miles we will start to see whether this is really worth talking about.
  7. I am too lazy. I am hoping a foam and spray will now suffice. The emira really suffers on the rear hind, the side skirts and the rear (musty be aerodynamics). It as been a drama keeping clean. It was winter of course. Nobody really needs to PPF or ceramic coat a car. We don't have enough data yet on the robustness of the paint on an emira but I was just in a position to take that worry away.
  8. I expect to spend £80K and have a car that does NOT need a detail or the brakes redone as it has been left standing for too long! Nobody should have to detail a new car when they get it. It should either be done at the factory or during PDI at the agent. The orange peel is bad but at least it can be sorted. It is, I believe, just the lacquer anyway Weirdly, the paint on the cars I originally saw twice at the factory didn't seem to have this but then again I was not picking it up and going over the car with a fine toothcomb. Again, they might not have been lacquered. Apart from that, the paint itself is magnificent in tone.
  9. The paint, straight out of the factory, is not as good as we hoped. A detail is all that is actually needed. I went much further than I had to, likely over-protective but I am delighted with the result and can finally sleep easy driving it.
  10. Ha. It is the opposite. The paint is much smoother. I am definitely realising that you can't see the vast improvements over the standard paint in film and image. Be interesting to get a report back from other owners on what a detailer thinks when they show it to them. I miss everything as I am not a details person but I am expecting some horror stories.
  11. Ha, I didn't love it at first. I thought 'OMG, the car has completely changed!' and then I started looking at it and wow, what an improvement. Now I am very happy. If you do wish to use GVE London then mention RevMoney10 for a 10& discount on any service. They had to do a LOT of prep on my car as I had been driving it for quite a while at the point I dropped it in and the standard paint is NOT good. Happy to answer any questions.
  12. My latest video after early ownership miles.
  13. Alas, they may not care that much. Yes, they should care. Lotus will sell all the Emiras it ever wishes to make. However, some damage has been done and the idea was to promote Lotus 2.0 as a proper rival to the established car companies and this, at best, is still a work in progress.

    Lotus Emira

    Great news. It will win many awards. It has to on looks alone. The more I drive mine the better the car seems to get. It still has that Lotus magic.
  15. Nono. Very happy with how the black Alcantara/Leather looks and feels.
