  1. Verdant looked pretty much the same as the disc version to me (I’ve only seen that in photos though) but showed the curves off quite well - looked very dark in shade but popped in sunlight - nice weather at Hethel this afternoon! Not much different to the old Empire Green as far as I can tell…..
  2. New merch here: https://shop.lotussilverstone.co.uk/ dealers have taken so much stock the factory is restocking before opening direct sales here : https://store.lotuscars.com/
  3. Likewise - looking forward to more photos!
  4. Not really, no…… The colour samples in Bibs’ photos were brought from the design studios as the small disc ones were stuck elsewhere….. The factory shop was open with the new merchandise range though!
  5. I can confirm what TomE just posted - I was at Hethel today - Scott Walker (UK Sales Manager) confirmed that queue places (whichever queue you opt for/end up in - i.e. V6FE, i4FE, base + own spec) are all based solely on initial deposit date/time, as long as 2nd and 3rd deposits, and config choices, are made by the deadlines set when requested by Lotus. For anything other than V6 FE cars, these won't be requested yet....
  6. Elisa (Artioli) meets Emira at Hethel.....
  7. Me too (had the email, not in junk) - although I was tipped off that they were coming and was looking out for them 😉I have now switched mine from Silverstone on 1st Nov to Hethel on 28th Oct - quite handy as I'm only 13 miles from Hethel!
  8. It sounds to me as if the issue is more around naming conventions/marketing here! How many would choose differently if the options were called, say, "Sport" and "Track" instead of "Touring" and "Sport"? 🤨

  10. Had my call yesterday while (/smug mode - while at the airport in Milan) - deposit placed 8th July (Goodwood Thursday) at 16:34 Elected to wait for i4 first edition (asked about delays - the official line is still Autumn 2022 deliveries) and received this almost as soon as the call was ended :-
  11. Maybe there will be a move to variable mileage/condition-based service intervals with the new electrical systems (and especially the i4 engine) as opposed to the archaic fixed annual service / fixed mileage interval regime of the past?
  12. Or Yellow with green - and much closer to home.... 🙂
  13. They're clearly still tweaking it - steering wheel choices have been reduced to just two now as well.....
  14. https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax-rate-tables - as said, emissions are still a guess at present - but that only affects the first year in any case..... Then all cars over £40,000 are £490 for years 2 to 6 then £155 (currently - but who knows what the UK Gov will do by then....)
  15. You can't configure an i4 (yet and) now that V6 pricing is on the configurator. Assuming option prices are the same, the key for comparison is the non-optioned i4 First Edition price - I've been on the chat and told that this would be visible in a personal configurator link to be sent to deposit-holders "soon", and as part of the initial telephone call process.....
