  1. Must have overlooked it. Thanks! 🙂
  2. For the road show guys: Can someone take a picture of the tyre specs? Like: all the numbers on the sidewall of the tyre? Thank you 🙂
  3. - Are they going to offer any service plans (2-3-5 years?) or extended warranty programs? - Like you said: Estimated price for the Goodyears and Michelins. - The "actual" inches in wheel gap between wheels and arches. - How about the rumours for the future colours? What do they know? I'm probably too late now to ask this, no? 🙂
  4. Euhm, some dude on FB claims today six future colours were revealed today at Ashford. Black, white, 2 greys, 2 blues, red...? (Lotus Emira Owners-group) Sure is strange this info isn't shared here? Can someone confirm this? Sure sounds strange... @Bibs, you were there, have you seen or heard about this?
  5. Lucky people! And sunshine for free... 😅
  6. Just out of curiosity, what would be an example of US taxes? German price with tax (19%) for the V6 FE is +/- 97.500 euro (83500 pounds, 113.000 dollar). Can't imagine we have to pay so much more than the Americans. 🤔 Belgian tax is even 21%... Edit: Just did a Google => taxes on a car sale vary from 3 to 8 percent, depending on the state. 😳
  7. Did the tyre had a specific marking (a extra code or something) on the sidewall that said it's specially made for Emira?
  8. @TomE I saw you have some smashing pics of the samples in the sun. Can you also post them here? 🙂 Thank you very much 👍 Magma Red looks the bomb imo!
  9. I really appreciate the honest reviews about the first roadshow experiences. I totally understand the disappointment when it comes to not getting that special feeling you probably wanted. When you look at a Porsche event, everything is shiny and exciting, red carpets, champagne and caviar... But on the other hand: such dealers sure know how to empty your pockets afterwards. 😃 The "Porsche Tax" is a well known phenomenon when you pick up your P. after some maintenance and when you start to search the fora, they sure aren't all flawless cars. Maybe this will help to feel a little better? 🙃 But then again, I saw the little clips of the unveiling and yes, it didn't look very spectacular. The Emira deserved better. Maybe the Lotus folks read along and put a little more effort in making it a special occasion.
  10. Paging @glen8, the Photoshop wizard! 🙂 🙂
  11. Nimbus sure glitters like a lollypop! 😃 👍 About Magma red => On picture one would say it looks like Calypso Red instead of Fire Red. Shows again the importance of Real Life Viewing vs Forum World Seeing. 😌
  12. Thanks for all the input! Like most of the people here say: it's probably a whole other sight in real life. Red would be my favourite, Nimbus could be the surprise of the day. 🙂
  13. Would be handy if a Mercedes dealer could do the maintenance for the AMG engine, but that would probably be wishful thinking, I guess...
