  1. 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
  2. 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/

  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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?
  9. 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
  10. Some painted cars in Harry's video. I think the one with the absence of light is verdant green
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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 😁
  14. I went and drove a V6 manual Exige 410 and automatic Evora 410 at B&C last weekend and they sounded amazing and now I want an Exige lol, no questions in my mind that it's the V6 manual for me. The clutch and gearbox in the Exige was a surprise though, is the clutch that laboursome in the Evora? which i ask as I guess the Emira clutch pedal would follow the Evora? I loved it in the Exige but I am concerned about it in the Emira when I want a more relaxed drive or am in traffic.

  16. PDF version attached, Thanks MaJiK Emira First Edition Options.pdf
  17. Great find that, At Bell & Colvill roadshow Launch one of the Lotus team brought out this same document printed in low quality on A4, That is a Lotus document.
  18. Hi All, please see below regarding changing your lotus specification after placing your 2nd deposit. I do not know the date of the Final payment. Customer care also disclaimed afterwards: "Please note that we would not necessarily encourage customers to change their configuration, as this is not a quick process. We would absolutely recommend submitting your preferred configuration and keeping it this way. The opportunity to change your configuration is to be used in cases such as yours when you've realised after the fact that you need to make a change." @E1M2I3R4A @Mctaff

  20. First place to go to would be contacting customer care who are the same team doing the Spec phone calls and live chat. I've spoken to them a couple of times and they are helpful LOTUS CUSTOMER CARE Tel: +44 (0) 330 0948047 Email: [email protected] GROUP LOTUS Hethel, Norwich, Norfolk, NR14 8EZ, England
  21. Well done @Mickle I think you’ve nailed that for accuracy
  22. Lotus customer care have not minced their words regarding the 5th November date. If you wish to change your spec after this date the default process is that you are put back in the queue. Whether this is enforced I don’t know. That is certainly what they have said to me on the live chat and spec phonecall. That date is also in the terms and conditions for the £3k 2nd stage deposit for the reason of efficient factory planning. That stance was from 1 week ago though so maybe this has changed. I wouldn’t advise going past this date without confirming how it will affect your queue position with Lotus
  23. I also sent an email to Lauren at customercare earlier asking for it to be sent on. Effectively asking for a picture of a panel in each colour and the alloys to be released or at least unofficially leaked to forums so people know what they are buying. As great as mickle’s photoshop is if i was going for verdant green i would be concerned going off of the small disc sample or mickle’s photoshop
