  1. This really surprises me- it's just the 'upgraded' spoiler from the higher spec model and I say in the description that the original spoiler is also included... whats the issue with having the 'upgrade' on? I was thrilled when I bought the car with the spoiler included! 😂
  2. Thanks for your input. Yeah- there was a similar spec in Grey with a few more miles for about £49k at a dealer, so I thought I would undercut that by a bit. But that seems to be a bit overpriced and has come down in price now. I'm in no real rush to sell, but I figuref prices might dip in winter and as energy costs go up people might be more careful with their money, so it might be beneficial to try and sell it sooner.
  3. Hi folks, just thought I'd check in and see what you think the right price for the Evora S I'm selling would be. Maybe I was being optimistic but I thought I would sell it straight away! It's the Daytona Blue ad at £46,500 link
  4. Just thought I would check-in here, what do you think is a fair price for this? (It's my car that I'm selling privately). I have knocked the price down a bit, but thought I would have had more interest than I have had so far. https://www.lotusforsale.com/ads/2014-evora-s-manual-22-sport-racer-15k-miles/ I'm also interested to hear more about Collecting cars etc, as scmt above is
  5. Ah interesting. The previous owner told me, he was pretty certain of it so I believed him (but have never looked into it myself). I've seen a bunch of his posts around various forums with others discussing it too. Maybe I'll just remove that bit! 😅
  6. My Evora listing is now live 🥲 https://www.lotusforsale.com/ads/2014-evora-s-manual-22-sport-racer-15k-miles/
  7. My Daytona blue Evora S will be up for sale in the next few weeks. ***Please list it on https://www.lotusforsale.com***
  8. I had the same- took the wheel off and put it back on and voila, all gone! I did inspect bits and bobs accessible from the wheelarch and couldn't find anything wrong.
  9. I'm going to go back on my original comment... turns out my car didn't have the vacuum reservoir added when the BOE intake was added. This basically means the exhaust valve was open all the time. Since adding the reservoir, the 2bular exhaust with sport mode OFF sounds like the normal exhaust with sport mode ON. And with sport mode ON, the exhaust is loud all the time (although personally still find this a little loud!)
  10. OK, this is much better! Some context: Previously I'd said that the 2bular exhaust was too loud. My car had the 2bular valved exhaust with BOE intake. The original air box has a vacuum reservoir built in (which allows the exhaust valves to work whilst you're driving). I realised nobody had added a replacement vacuum reservoir, so the exhaust was basically in loud mode pretty much all the time. I've added a vacuum reservoir in, and now with sport mode OFF, the car is 'quiet' (sounds like the original exhaust with sport mode ON, up until the 4500rpm limit where the valve opens anyway), and with sport mode ON the car is loud. Exactly how I wanted it (and how it should be). The BOE reservoir was $60 + shipping + VAT + import duty... so I bought a Maserati one off eBay for £20 instead. Slightly different shape but the same thing- a ball with an inlet, outlet, and valve. I think BOE use an EPMAN 47076 but I couldn't find this in stock anywhere. Installation: very easy. Pop the BOE intake out (1 big jubilee clip and one other connecting hose) Bolt the vacuum reservoir down to the old intake mounting plate (note, for my maserati reservoir I had to use a knife to lengthen the slots for the bolts by about 5mm) Snip the vacuum hose that was connected to the supercharger > exhaust solenoid. (Note, you might want to check your hose is long enough before snipping it. Mine had enough slack in it, tucked away by the solenoid valve. If not you'll just need to by about 1m of hose.) Attach the supercharger end to the wide nozzle on the reservoir Attach the exhaust solenoid end of the hose to the narrow nozzle on the reservoir Put the BOE intake back in.
  11. An update on this... Whilst cleaning my BOE air intake, I realised that it doesn't have the vacuum reservoir installed (intake and exhaust installed by previous owner). The stock air intake has this hidden inside the airbox, but it's removed on the BOE intake. The exhaust valve is open by default and shuts under vacuum, but as you pull away and revs rise, the vacuum decreases, opening the exhaust valves. The reservoir is there to hold this vacuum under regular driving. So that should be why even in 'normal' mode my exhaust was really loud. I've got a vacuum reservoir ordered (a maserati one for £20 rather than the expensive BOE one) which should actually make my 2bular exhaust quieter when not in Sport mode
  12. Oops, yes you are correct- I got the static/drive by the wrong way round. I popped down to brands hatch a while ago for a static test and measured 118db static with my 2bular valved exhaust on loud 🤣 I have the stock exhaust to put back on, but it's the drive-by noise of the supercharger that makes me a bit nervous, as it's pretty loud from the cabin
  13. Any idea if a BOE intake on a 2014 S would put it past the noise limits? (brands hatch)
  14. I have the BOE CAI on my 2014 S (bought the car with it). How much louder is it than stock? With a stock exhaust, do you think it would breach UK track noise limits? (105db drive by, 92db static). As I understand the car is close to noise limits anyway!
