  1. Thanks Ade. Both you, Tom, Eagle and a few others are so generous with your time. Forget bikes, just do weekly updates on Lotus! I've made my decision. Told my family to disown me if I change again. After flirting with grey and believing it will throw the most shapes, hide stone chips and dirt, I have decided to stick with my original build but just changed the wheels. Behold, minimal changes equivalent to 500 hours of thinking (I will need to source or tint the wheel logos though...)
  2. Now you've seen the Magma, would the Red interior work with it?... I am finding it so hard to decide My ideal spec would have been green with tan, I've provisionally ordered red with tan, I now am thinking nimbus with tan, but now ice grey is looking good and I do miss red leather! This is unfair, I wish all the FE specs were just one colour, yellow with black alcantara and yellow piping!
  3. Changing from Magma to Nimbus and going with silver wheels now I think. Or maybe black!
  4. New configurator up Not working properly for me though
  5. It's about time you did another video.
  6. Hi R8. I believe you will be disappointed after a V10 plus R8. I'm not saying the Audi is better because I don't think it is My friend has an R8 and it is fast and it is smooth and it is a quality product. The Lotus cannot compare, it is 80k vs 160k so only compare apples with apples please. If they did the R8 as a manual (like they used to) and maybe got rid of the heavy and complicated 4wd (like they did once!), I wouldn't think twice about buying one instead of the emira because both are incredibly good looking machines. You will not get porsche/audi refinement from an emira if that is what you are after. Regarding comms, I wouldn't judge the product by dealer or manufacturer quality of service, if everybody did that, nobody would buy an Audi
  7. I've gone tan but would prefer white leather so would like to see what ice grey looks like before I pay the 3rd deposit. Red, tan, black pack, diamonds, yellow calipers, sports and cup 2s.
  8. Hopefully! Is it too much, red interior, red exterior? I wanted tan and green but not sure now.
  9. You know what would be nice is if we can compare the new colours to their closest matches on the Evora. The Nimbus Grey looks great on the configurator and in that paint sample and if it does look like Crayon, that is a winner for me.
  10. Haha! You said you always wanted a little sister. Our love won't be shared between you both, it will be multiplied. Now come on, let's go to McDonald's and you can have anything you want from the Happy Meal menu.

    Lotus Emira

    It's individual choice. It's personal circumstances. It's opportunity. Money no object and only allowed 1 car for life, it wouldn't be an Emira V6 for me but I cannot think of another brand new manual car that will give me what I crave (other than cars in the Porsche stable if I knew a man who knew a man and the Ariel Atom.) All car drivers have stereotypes, it's human nature and that is why I respect car lovers who have a wide variety, from a Caterham to a RR Cullinan - as they only fit a certain stereotype when they are seen by narrow minded onlookers! The only people who deserve a car lover's contempt are the ones that base their decision on monthly repayment, insurance premium and locality of the dealer - everyone else, whether they drive a Ferrari 812 or a Fiat Coupe, have my respect. Apologies for going off topic, just waiting for that damn call or I'm going to my local Vauxhall dealer and buying a Meriva (currently £99 down, £99 a month!)
  12. Hi guys, not sure if this is helpful to anyone but I feel a little better not having shelled out £3k still... LIVE CHAT: Hi. The deposit calls for the V6. Are they in any order? I should have received my call by now as others who placed an order after Goodwood have received calls. Thanks Sunny 10:34 am Welcome to Lotus Cars UK. Chat may be recorded for training and quality purposes. Good morning, we are going in order from when the deposit was placed in our system. We have only been given a very small list from Lotus HQ to work through, this is in order from first in the system so please do be patient in the meantime. We will be contacting you soon in regard to this along with the private link. ME 10:35 am Thanks, but even though I placed it with my dealer before July? Sunny 10:36 am Correct, we have only started this week. Once again, being provided with a small list each day by Lotus HQ. ME 10:36 am Great, thank you very much. Enjoy your day! Sunny 10:36 am no problem, you too!

  13. Included with first edition cars.
  14. Is the number withheld guys? I don't usually answer unknown numbers Maybe they will just email if they donlt get through?
  15. Don't do this to me!!!!! I just hope it's bottle green. I loved the exige s1s with the black rear window so will blame my younger self!
  16. Nice vid! I like the red but just worried what red it will be so going safe with green! Privacy glass I think goes with roof and also it says rear window is tinted too but know exactly what you mean.
  17. I think chasing market share has messed things up a bit for Lotus but not that they will care. The things they have added like electric seats and cruise control etc. could have been removed for FE Sport and kept in for FE Touring. I would much rather have carbon shelled buckets and other lighter items than parking sensors and electric seats - I hope the FE will hold its value enough for me to get a "cup" version in a few years. The thing is it is so damn beautiful, you can kind of forgive everything! I'd only cheat on an Emira if I met a Maserati MC20 in a bar.
  18. Sport suspension but Goodyear tyres as don't want to die in a thunderstorm! Just need the wheel lip painted caliper yellow to complete look and then I'm happy!
  19. Changed again but cannot see a height drop with sport suspension
  20. Thanks Matt. Makes sense. Only a V6 for me, would prefer a V8 but beggars can't be choosers!
  21. They have updated it a little bit Now full black pack and lower black pack!
  22. I've asked my retailer and Lotus this and then I thought, what an idiot. I could just ask you guys as this is my first new Lotus! Let's say they call next week and I have to decide a colour; my configuration depends on exterior colour, so after I pay the other 3k and in a month or so decide I don't want grey, I want red - will I be able to change the spec or will it be too late. When I ordered my AMV8 launch edition about 16 years ago we only had 2 choices, inside colour and outside colour, but this is more configurable!
  23. it's really good because you can go anywhere! the next of kin was a bit strange, could it be there are test drives?
  24. Caffyns Lotus has been really good with comms. Deposit holders have been informed today to expect an email from Lotus this morning for 2nd October 2 hour in depth visits. I can't make it but will be there on Sunday with the fans!
