  2. I knew used prices were on the up, but...... 🤣 https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202210200911806
  3. I've replied on your other post.....
  4. It depends if a DAB aerial was connected when the unit was installed.... It needs a DAB aerial of some sort but, as the Evora FM aerial isn't powered, a powered splitter or separate DAB aerial will be needed to get any sort of DAB signal. Whilst the splitters work in strong DAB signal areas I get a lot of drop-outs in weaker areas, but the again my factory-fit Range Rover DAB does that too.... I used a splitter like this (can't remember the exact one) as I didn't want a separate DAB windscreen aerial or anything like that: https://www.amazon.co.uk/DriveSmart-Powered-Amplifier-Splitter-Converter/dp/B09FQFGMY5 I had a metal-cased one first that didn't work at all so that went back - I'd avoid that type.....
  5. First UK i4 production is now delayed until July 2023 (for early depositors and pre/during Goodwood 2021 when MANY orders were taken) so that's not too bad really.....
  6. https://www.strattonmotorcompany.com/car/lotus-evora-400-2017-ips/ Price has been reduced today from £59995 to £56995 - I saw this car when I was there on Friday with mine for a service - very low mileage, "mature" owner etc. Interior is a bit "Marmite" and it's an auto but condition is lovely - it's prepped and inside the showroom now!

    https://carnewschina.com/2022/11/21/lotus-envya-type-133-electric-sedan-spied-in-china/ "The development of the last petrol-powered sports cars remains in the UK. But after the current generation, there won’t be any new ones. So all actual development will be in China only." 🤪
  9. Surely this should be covered on insurance under the "glass cover" section, with a zero or negligible excess (depending on policy) and no effect on NCD (regardless of complexity)? I'd be getting some quotes and negotiating with my insurance company, if Autoglass or similar can't or won't do it.....

    Alas, not until August/September 2023 now (i4....) 😒
  11. Something sounds off with that date - are you sure they haven’t got you down for a V6 still? That would seem to make more sense to align with your original deposit date….
  12. Same for me (8th July 2021 Deposit - Goodwood Thursday) - now August 2023 build - previously confirmed to be "in the first i4 batch".....
  13. Wow - 2 weeks between PDI and delivery? Hopefully that will speed up as they hone the process and they'll now have boxes of print manuals "in stock" to send out with the cars as well. I hope my manual pouch has red stitch (unlikely I know....) !
