  1. Did you ask about factory collection? I’m very keen for this
  2. Emiralust

    Lotus Emira

    At this price point? I’m interested in what other cars you are comparing the interior to at £60-£75k. In my opinion, unless you spend £200k+ the quality of interiors do not step up
  3. New Configurator and video of your chosen spec coming on 24th January as well as finance info
  4. Hi All, I received this reply from customer care regarding the diamond cut alloys when i asked if they will be like the blue uk show car or the Shanghai wall hung alloy we’ve seen pictures of at Lotus NYO. They say the Diamond cut alloys will be the same as the ones on the pre production car in the UK.
  5. When they phoned you, did you make any changes? I think the email i received was only because i made changes
  6. Lots of different colours in those pictures! A friend of mine said he saw a white one on the roads recently
  7. Received this email today following the June est delivery phonecall I received on 17th December I was going to stick with changing the alloy type depending on when it’s confirmed which style the diamond cut alloy was (blue show car or shanghai yellow car) as there is ambiguity on that at the moment. Because of this, on the call it was said I will still have the option to confirm the change once the factory let the customer care representative and myself know any delay impact my changes might have, following which I could decide whether to confirm the change or not. Email reads as though my changes are just going through since there was no delay and without my confirmation and it’s locked in, changing this will now cause a delay 😂 i’m ok with it but would have been nice to have the changes written in the email. Be careful when you’re asked if you want to make a minor change because they made it seem like it wasn’t the final say but it is.
  8. I had this company ceramic coat my car in Northamptonshire, came out stunning and my emira will be going here. Price was less than a grand too and the facility was very nice, some nice car porn on site to see which the owner was happy to show https://instagram.com/epiccarcare?utm_medium=copy_link
  9. Non black pack photoshop from reddit. Shame there hasn’t been much more shown of the Shanghai car
  10. Ah right that settles that for me then thank you, i wouldn’t have been happy if i went to collect the car expecting those nice diamond cuts on the show car and got what look like knock offs on the Chinese car
  11. Diamond cut to black. I’ve specced yellow and couldn’t decide between the black or diamond cut alloys at the time of speccing. When I saw the show car with the matte finish diamond cuts in person i decided on them, but if the recent Shanghai pictures mean the diamond cut alloys are not the same as the show car I will be switching to black
  12. I've seen this on the enemy forum! Worth pointing out That the diamond cut alloys are different, they aren't the rough matt black from the show car we've been seeing, rather a glass black now. Pictures are from china so maybe this is only in china? Lots of pictures on this legends instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CXlcperF4Zu/

  14. Just had my call, I'm 7th July around 3pm deposit Two key points from my call were that the 3rd deposit we thought was coming in January is not happening (might still change), and the order only becomes nonrefundable when you sign the contract which is 30 days before delivery. IE if you are 29th June delivery, you can still cancel up to 29th May. Apparently a few of us have asked about factory collection 😅 So they have put that forward to the powers at be and it's possible it might be an option Of course I asked where I was in the queue, and she said along the lines of they are not giving out queue positions or dates to avoid upset or expectations etc. Which I can understand, they're still saying you're one of the first cars, I think that's just a nicety of big picture you're in the first 30 days, relax. I asked to add a tracker and potentially change my alloy colour. She said that's fine and the process is she will speak to the factory planner and relay back whether the spec amendment will cause a delay then the decision is mine whether to make that change.
