  1. Perhaps you should get over to the Emira section and "have a word" with a few in there...... 🤣
  2. i4 first builds are (currently planned for) November 2022, delivery December 2022 (UK cars) - configs and 2nd deposits for early depositors started being taken in early April...
  3. It's a rubber seal. That access panel opens forwards, i.e. hinged at the front....
  4. The front wheels are turned to the right on the blue car.....

    An October 2021 article, but linked here for completeness... https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/new-cars/2026-lotus-type-135-electric-elise-successor-detailed And a comedy render, of course, as it's Autocar - Q. What do you get if you photoshop the vents and grilles off of an Emira? 🤣
  6. Copied over from the "other" forum....... Pre-prod cars in real-world testing?
  7. Try here : https://www.ferodoracing.com/ecat Under "Car Racing", "Lotus", "Evora" then "Search" there are 8 different options shown for a 2010 NA Evora but there's nothing for Evora under High Performance....

Just had an email from Lotus confirming that specification will be locked on 1st July for November build and December delivery! 🙂
  9. https://shop.lotussilverstone.co.uk/collections/lotus-accessories/products/evora-sidelight-led-disc Silverstone Lotus can replace the whole disc (for a price!)....
  10. New Evora headlights currently showing as unavailable too..... 😶 https://lotusparts.strattonmotorcompany.com/a/Lotus_2014_Evora/_83812_9108399/Headlamps/Evora_B132T0325D_1713.html

  12. https://www.eliseparts.com/shop/exterior-bodywork/stainless-steel-mudflap-brackets-a132b4100f/ Bibs can get all Lotus parts on request but if you want stainless steel replacements.....
  13. +1 to this, and also Aliath - I used their headlamp protectors which are excellent. Having said that I got mine here - as it specifically states that they go on top of the PPF which is what I wanted.... https://www.elise-shop.com/sharkfin-decals-evora-evora-4x0-evora-gt-p-503580.html There's a thread here too :
  14. i4 is still being quoted as "Available from Winter 22/23".......
  15. Hoping the OP in the private Facebook group where this was originally posted doesn't mind (Credit: Simon Hughes) the copy - Yellow Emira on the A11..... 278584732_1640007253032763_450532568438247947_n.mp4
  16. No - cleaned and straight over the top (checked a 410 at Strattons and that's what the factory do too) - takes the eye off the yellowing a bit and they've been fine....
  17. Mine's the same - I put black shark fins over it instead......
  18. Mine will be for sale in "Winter 2022/23", whenever Lotus decide that is, and deliver an i4 Emira FE....
  19.

  20. I would hope that, once the i4 FE is in production, they reschedule the production line by first deposit date for both engine types..... 🤣
  21. They haven't started proactively calling/emailing yet but if you ask Lotus Customer Services on webchat or by email they'll send out an i4 config link and take the 2nd deposit online (another £3k if you've already paid £2k)..... 😉 They hadn't sorted out the auto-confirmation email 2 days ago so that still confirmed a V6 too ("being fixed")....
  22. https://www.lotuscars.com/en-GB/eletre/configure/?model=Lambda Plenty of interior colours on the configurator (including green!) but you need to change the exterior colour first as they seem to differ in availability depending on that....
