  4. Had a read of Central Lotus copy of Road Rat, nothing jumped out as being new information
  5. @Bibs Available 2023 I assume early deposit holders will be getting theirs this year and don't have to wait till 2023?
  6. We have had a number of speed restrictions amended in Nottinghamshire over the last year or so, and the Head unit has been telling us we are over the new lower speed limit, as far as I'm aware we haven't had the SatNav - Maps updated or is it automatically updated?
  7. our GT430 and our Previous Evora S (ICE) would tell you as soon as you went a couple of mph over the speed limit.
  8. Well I have just registered on Lotus website to join the future (NFT) world! think I will be looking in the sky tonight to see the 5 planets and a view into the unknown 😳
  9. In today’s Electronic version of AutoExpress Top 20 UK’s top car industry executives named, who have done wonders for global car makers. No. 13 Matt Windle Managing Director Lotus Cars

    Type 133

    Must admit @hedgerleydo like that render. The new Fisker (SUV) Ocean is apparently a rival to the Tesla Model Y and will be displayed at this year’s Goodwood FoS on Electric Avenue Im struggling to see how an SUV that looks like a RR can be a rival for what looks like a car. Which I assume Type 133 will be competing with? The Ocean basic price looks ok, with top of range (no pun intended although it does have have a good WLTA figure) Ocean Extreme still looking very good value and similar length to the Y!

    Having been in Vancouver for a few days, can’t believe how many Tesla’s there are, who is going to be chasing their future sales?
  12. Hi, To enable us to give an idea of numbers to the parlour, if you are hoping to make the meeting could you please let me know asap kind regards, Darryl
  13. Does the top of the range 905bhp version receive larger battery pack? Large dose of lightweighting or is the compromise less range? Apologies if already asked and answered
  14. The 10th Edition of the Road Rat features the Eletre, only available to depositors?
  15. thanks Keith (i cant remember seeing the Electric Elise at 50th) I stand corrected Evija is not first electric Lotus, and yes i had also forgotten about the Electric Evora unless that was depicted as a hybrid. Does make you wonder why Lotus didn't pursue their own Electric Elise?
  16. 10am Thaymar Ice cream parlour and farm shop; Haughton Park Farm, Near Bothamsall, Retford, Nottinghamshire DN22 8DB Bacon cobs and coffee, hopefully a few more members than at the West Retford? keep safe Darryl
  17. thought Evija was the first Electric Lotus?
  18. Don’t think any of the Lotus dealers charged us for the biscuits 😂
  19. just cause you order your car direct from factory doesn't stop you talking/having a coffee at your Lotus dealer/agent/retailer (or whatever they are called at the present time). we have ordered an Eletre on line as has Andy our local Lotus dealer, we chat to Andy regularly and to various people at the factory nothing has really changed dont think Lotus have ever been that good at comms, have purchased brand new Lotus cars from many different Lotus dealers over the years always got on well with the folks at Hethel including JMG & MJK and the Lotus dealers dont really see what the issue is; NOW heading to kitchen for a coffee and out of the firing range of incoming flak, till next time
  20. Still only an initial £2K deposit, with further £3K second half of year
  21. don't see an issue in owning both TBH. If we weren't getting an Eletre, did and would consider an Emira for using in winter months when GT430 is snuggled up in garage.
  22. a winter daily driver?
  23. The DAB function was not operational on our generation of Evora although the "Premium" head unit was capable, there is however an Aftersales kit that can be retro fitted, an Alpine audio dealer could also help you with this. The parts list from Lotus ASO is: 36 Harness, alpine radio* C132M0326F 1 37 Cable, antenna input* 20 MY A132M6244F 1 38 Cable, FM output* 20 MY A132M6245F 1 39 Cable, DAB output* 20 MY A132M6246F 1 40 Splitter DAB Antenna* 20 MY A132M6243F 1 Hope this helps.
  24. Welcome @MarkieTand especially to the IPS dark side
  25. Hi Keith, yes totally different but we have also switched from i4 to Eletre as we were/are keeping the 430 possibly not too difficult to follow we are also getting PV panels installed ready for the new car. So really dragging ourselves into the 21st century?
