  1. I don’t think it is so much the quality of the leather it is the structure underneath
  2. Sagging seats has come up before on the forum. It would be nice to know how they are constructed and whether there is an issue as we don’t really want to be taking the car back under warranty
  3. My sister in law has an all electric Honda which is so quiet that as a safety feature it plays the sound of an engine through a speaker to alert pedestrians that it is coming - so it could be worse !
  4. You are absolutely right. I purchased my current F Type because it looks stunning, sounds amazing and drives superbly on the road. If it wasn’t for the Emira I would be keeping it but was seduced by the Emira’s looks at the launch last year and immediately put down a deposit. The Cayman just doesn’t have the wow factor and nor does the 911. They both probably go around a track better than the Emira but don’t create the same level of excitement that has come across in many of the reviews.
  5. Wake up at the back Rambo it is an Emira
  6. Top Gear magazine scored the Emira 9/10 and the Cayman 8/10 overall
  7. This is the first time that I have ordered a Lotus having previously owned BMWs, a Porsche, Mercedes and currently an F Type. As has already been said if the Emira was a stripped out track car I would not be buying it so Lotus has achieved its objective and widened its market . I do still have concerns however over build quality, reliability and ongoing support and servicing. I am due to take delivery in November so hope the car meets expectations. In July I have booked a session on the track at Lotus to see how it handles. The safe option would have been a Cayman but it just doesn’t have the wow factor that the Emira has.
  8. I know the feeling I am sticking with nimbus grey but switching from a black interior to tan having seen this image
  10. I won’t be driving mine on a track so quite happy to completely discount the EVO track review and share Harry’s excitement at just getting behind the wheel and blasting it down a deserted B road. It’s a beautiful looking car and the V6 sounds superb so still very much looking forward to taking delivery in November.
  11. 😂 Sorry Rambo getting over excited !
  12. Nimbus Grey from recent factory video
  13. New video on You Tube showing the factory at Hethel included a trio of Emiras in Nimbus Grey
  14. I have been given a November delivery date so very happy to have something confirmed.
