  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.
  15. I'm delighted to see a Yellow one, I would like to be optimistic and think this was done knowing pictures would come back to the few on forums and be met with gratitude, which it is. But it still leaves a sour taste, just leak some factory pictures already. Now this yellow car is out it puts a time limit on releasing pictures of other specs now in my opinion, this isn't GCHQ we just want to see the other cars that are built, please.
  16. The deposit dates have been lost a few pages back so just bringing this back: please copy and paste to make any amendments or add deposits 11 March 21 - 6970K - 27 April 21: Lotus company update and Emira name announced 27 April 21 - TomE - UK - V6 manual 28 April 21 - JamesDG - UK - V6 manual 30 April 21 - Pugwash - UK - V6 manual 4 May 21 - Philsport300 - UK - V6 manual 7 May 21 - Mark030358 - Undecided 15 May 21 - JCR - Undecided 19 May 21 - Gashead1105 - Undecided 20 May 21 - Evotion - V6 Manual 20 May 21 - Evotion - i4 22 May 21 - KennyN - V6 Manual 4 June 21 - DJW - V6 FE Auto ordered - 2nd deposit paid 5 June 21 - Worldwidewebs - 9 June 21 - Lavazza - undecided 7 June 21 - MarkWilliams1 - Undecided 23 June 21 - KJD - V6 manual 28 June 21 - DaveC72 - i4 29 June 21 - greg/valetpro - Not decided which engine yet. 6 July 21: Emira reveal at Hethel 6 July 21 - Duncs - V6, but cost dependent. 6 July 21, 22:00 - EmiraSi - 6 July 21, 08:00 - Claymore - 6 July 21, 23:09 - Abgreenbank - 7 July 21 - Lockey - i4 7 July 21 - freefall_junkie - V6 manual UK 7 July 21 - glen8 - i4 7 July 21 - Al_C - I4 7 July 21 - Neilread - I4 7 July 21 - Philnotts - V6 Manual 7 or 8 July 21 - JJ - Cost dependant 7 July 21 - marclurr - UK - V6 Manual 7 July 21 - LotusAmateur - UK - undecided 7 July 21, 15:45 -Emiralust - UK - V6 Manual 8 July 21: Goodwood Festival of Speed Day 1 (Thursday) 8 July 21, 09:39 - mctaff - UK - V6 manual 8 July 21, 16:34 - JimH - i4 8 July 21 - MJON - i4 8 July 21 - Wake - i4 (V6 cost dependant) 8 July 21 - Johnhoward - V6 Auto 8 July 21 - EmiraJam - 9 July 21: Goodwood Festival of Speed Day 2 (Friday) 9 July 21 - Beady - I4 (probably) 9 July 21, 08:00 - Beancounter - probably i4, but maybe v6 manual 9 July 21 - Speedluvver - i4 (most likely) 9 July 21 - E1M2I3R4A - V6 manual 10 July 21: Goodwood Festival of Speed Day 3 (Saturday) 10 July 21 - Washy - undecided 10 July 21 - Al - completely undecided. 11 July 21: Goodwood Festival of Speed Day 4 (Sunday) 12 July 21: post Goodwood Festival of Speed 12 July 21 - emstan - V6 12 July 21 - Denno - i4 (most likely) 15 July 21 - nohl2678 - V6 (I hope!) 16 July 21 - Frickin Idiot AMG / V6 19 July 21 - slotdawg - V6 Manual 27 July 21 - Scrute - V6 Manual
  17. I've only collected cars from the dealership previously, I think I've read a few of you collected cars from hethel before right? What does direct from the factory entail, is it cheaper, do you get to see any goodies like the production line, the design room they've shown in harry's videos? Any previous experience info would be good
  18. Anyone able to explain a bit more on how the number of cars made is split between countries, I don't understand it currently. I've read on here about 600 uk cars in the first year out of 4000 or whatever the number was. Is the 600th uk car going to be the 600th off the line or could be 4000th off the line?
  19. Did anybody try to change their configuration after putting their 2nd deposit down? I'm happy with mine but am intrigued if anybody changed and what the process was like
  20. Some painted cars in Harry's video. I think the one with the absence of light is verdant green
  21. I had my heart set on yellow but now looking at the great sample photographs provided by everybody above, It looks like the non metallic yellow will dull the sharp angles on the Emira too much for my liking which is a shame. I think the metallics look very luxurious, revisiting the configurator I can see they have tried to show this on the yellow when you compare the door and front arch lines between red and yellow. Sounds like we will see painted shells before we have to truly bite the bullet on the colour anyway so one to stress about another day. Great pictures again, thank you
  22. The finance % could be the deal breaker for me, as my first car on finance in that price bracket if it was 5.9% my head will outweigh my heart on that one and I would probably pull out. Jaguar finance is 4.9% at the moment, to the folks who have a bit more experience than me on car finance what are you considering as an acceptable APR you are hoping Lotus would offer? 40% maximum PCP allowable deposit down on an f type @ 4.9% APR 20% PCP deposit down on an f type @ 4.9% APR
  23. Ive always had double clutch and it definitely was not as good to be honest and i was told there was no way of leaving it permanently in manual, it will go back to auto after 30seconds or so which i hope i was misinformed on. I must admit that it was wet and they asked me to not put the car in sport or race so perhaps the gear changes could have been quicker. It wasn’t bad but i wasn’t blown away by it. The sound however was bang on! And the auto did sound good on the upshifts. It had the volume i miss from my V8 F type, and it reiterates how mundane my Z4 35is is. The sound deadening is obvious in the Evora after going in the Exige however once the window was down it was the same. I came away happy with the sound, not over the moon with auto, concerned about the manual clutch and wanting an Exige! I would recommend going and trying the cars if not just for fun 😁
