  1. I'm also sorry your experience has been so bad. I've always posted that Lotus need to up their quality control. It seems they have a long way to go. The paint blisters are really concerning imo.

  2. I love the LF1. And I agree the harnesses do not add any appeal. Very strong money but I honestly think that is the direction the S3s will be going. Its expensive for now though.

  3. I've only just read this so I'm late to the party. Thanks for posting. It is important for us to read bad experiences as well as good. The garage sounds like a good company to deal with. I don't think they could have been much fairer. The salesman you dealt with sounds brilliant. Good on him. I'm glad you are happy with the outcome. I would never buy any car without giving it a full inspection first. Especially this type of car. Alls well that ends well.

  4. I've been using my car weekly and with regular use the problem never came back. After 2 and a half weeks sat in my garage I pulled the car out to my drive and the light came on. No issues with power. I did 40 miles with the light on. I switched the engine off and back on 2 minutes later and the light cleared itself and never came back on. Sticky switch that needs lubrication on my car. I hope.

  5. Does the car make that noise when the revs are applied. I understand your concern and I would be the same as you. However it is under warranty till 2024, and your concern has been lodged with Lotus, so enjoy the car. Just make sure you stick to the correct service schedule so if something does go wrong out of warranty then you have a strong case. It might ge worth putting a note on the Evora site.

    Pumping the brake pedal a few times quickly cleared the issue for me.

    If buying a replacement switch I'd recommend getting a genuine one (about £60). There are a few people selling generic replacements for ~£30, I know at least two that didn't work properly.

    What fault code reader did you use? Mine didn't show anything even when the TC & Spanner lights were lit.

    At the risk of sounding flippant and I'm not intending to be. I think Lotus have fitted a large number of useless brake switches at the factory judging by the quantity that are failing with not a lot of use. It'll be interesting to see how many Emira owners suffer the same problem.
