  1. Wow with a cherry on top. We're being conditioned, slowly but surely and like sheep the vast majority are falling into line (2mtrs apart, don't speak, eyes forward). Like you say, open and very valid discussion being moderated and or removed is not a good sign. Not good at all. Too late mate, you think that was a filling the dentist gave you last time you went? They're already in your head, all the tinfoil will do is amplify the signal for them. LoL Seriously though, can you make me one too please.
  2. I watched the video you posted and hit the share button to put it on FB. A notice from FB popped up stating this video contained fake news/information (or something of the like) and should I wish to continue they would highlight this 'fact' on my post. We're all fucked long term, this is just the start of things to come. Welcome to the new world order.
  3. Stratton don't have any, we'll they didn't when I sold my silver car in 2017. The sales guy at Hoffmans caught it on a protruding steel bolt as he was moving it around site. He was very honest and called me immediately to tell me about the damage. They contacted Stratton but they had non for sale, the ones they had were for their builds. With my agreement they sent it to Reverie for repairs at their cost. Came back looking like new, I would look to contact Reverie as it will be way cheaper than mansory
  4. Yeah, you can also get a funny grinding feeling and noise on the down shift sometimes. My evora did it quite regular when you released the clutch going from 3rd to 2nd. It did it quite regular when it only had a few K on the clock, hasn't done it for a good while now though and I'm still on the same clutch/flywheel.
  5. I'd be making sure your emergency boot release works before fitting the small battery... Evora is well known for killing large batteries very quickly with no use from being parked up. Small one will be even more of a pain I'd say.
  6. Scary isn't it!! Still love mine and it's going nowhere!! Need to take it for a blast!! Nothing that a lick of paint couldn't sort out.
  7. Which dealer did the engine swap? Speak to them directly perhaps...
  8. #10 was the development car originally bought buy Lotus Newcastle. It had 10k in the clock when the first owner had it (Alan).
  9. Nothing about taking the price down, that is the price in the market today! Not just lotus that are suffering, everything high-end is. A mcl 600lt spider is looking tempting!!!
  10. That's dealer price. I was offered one privately last week for 75k... Still there if anyone is interested!
  11. The new nsx has failed pretty badly at going hybrid. High expense, low sales. As for practicality, the new car has to have better features as a daily driver than that of the old ones. That's one of Lotus main problems, people generally buy them as a third or forth car that are for special occasions and limited use. They need to do much better numbers on this one and get people in them as a 'daily driver' else Geely are wasting their time. Turns green when angry?
  12. This design of brake ducting doesnt have to have the feed pipes sitting in direct airflow. The brake disc is effectively a un-housed fan impeller. By adding the backing disc you've now "housed" the impeller which will create a suction. You only have to feed the ends of th{ piping somewhere near a fresh air feed and it will draw it's own supply in, you don't need to force it in.
  13. Ask yourself the question... would you buy the missus a current Lotus, the answer is probably yes!! Would she be happy with it? Probably not!!
  14. Okay so re-read your post, you say carbon rear clam... Fibre glass doesn't usually have a weave no. Get your phone camera and take a picture of the inner face of the rear clam through engine hatch, was if it's carbon you'll see it straight away.
