    Evora GTE Registry

    Cheers, did you take yours? Just made it back in time for the second half. But yes it definitely needs a wash! 😂 @ajheath I will be at the Silverstone classic with LDC in mine.
  4. There is a picture floating about of one with graphics all over and no front bumper. The bonnet on that does look to be popped, the trailing edge being raised by 8-10", which would make sense.
  5. I think any added exposure to the general public of LOTUS will help keep prices firm in the short term added to the fact that the Emira is not a +2. Generally though, as the Emira is priced at a lower price point that the Evora I think it will impact residuals, but it will be interesting to see what the real price of a normally specced Emira will be. I suspect they are following suit of many manufacturers of having a long (longer) list of options, so I wouldnt be surprised if areal spec car is at least £70k. I think the pick will be the 4cyl amg once they up the power output. I wouldnt surprise me if over time the V6 is discontinued leaving just the 4cyl, once we all get used to the idea of downsized engines.
  6. Out of interest what did the condition of the filter look like? I was surprised how small they are. You're more than welocme mate
  7. Hows your head? 😂, glad its made a difference for the better!
  8. Don't forget the paracetamol before you start, hopefully you won't get a headache from the fumes then 🤣😂
  9. Im still intereste in getting one, but realistically anyone else interested would need to be northwest based to make it practical delivery wise. Gav

    Evora GTE Registry

    Either way he's just plain greedy 😂🤣
  11. 🤣 I replaced the fuel pump on mine as the car stopped a couple of times before eventually refusing to start. It didn't throw any codes though. I would expect a knackered fuel pump to play up a bit but yours does sound if it's something else. You can pull the fuel pipe of the rail and put it into a container so see if it's pumping but if yours is running then I would say it is. Mine had corroded, presumably from when the GTEs were left to sat for a few years and it must have got condensation in the tank. Not sure how you can monitor fuel pressure though. If you do go down the fuel pump route drop me a DM before you spend £1200 or what ever it is on one from lotus. 😁 Just another thought, the fuel filter, it's on the pump in the tank, not external so could be this?
  12. Its odd that it's not throwing a spanner or code? Coil pack is the only other thing I could think of. I'm not sure if you can read the afr from the ECU, that might show something. The O2 sensor caused some issues on mine and if you can get obd software that graphs the output then its sometimes easier to see and interpret rather than just a fluctuating reading. What about fuel pressure?

    Evora GTE Registry

    I presume it's the original show one they had that was then updated last? year. I suspect it won't have the revised suspension of the GT 350s but more hp. As per acrobats engine on his conversion. Kevlar Kids red GTE is close to original spec as may be the Stratton cars.

    Lotus Emira

    Its the new prototype VX 😂
  17. A link to the article, which may give you more insight considering your background. Apart from mounting angle of the actuator and maybe the shaft, which geartox replaced, as far as lotus are concerned I believe it is just software difference between the various evora versions. Some say there are internal revisions to the gearbox but Ive never seen anything concrete as to what else was done. nbg.pdf
  18. If it's not kicking up a fault then I would say you have no gas or the AC compressor clutch has failed. If the clutch was ok and the comp seized you would hear a squeal and them a fault code. I would be tempted to get it re gassed as a first step. You will then know it's gassed and if it's holding pressure. If it did fail and give a code, it would eventually clear but not engage the AC. If you have a fault code reader, clear the codes and try the AC again.
  19. Looks like a carbon tub so would say Evija.
  20. Theyre an auto box, so in all honestly theyre not rocket science (says me...a sparky 🤣). Youre not going to alter shift times without altering the software which im not sure anyone has done outside lotus. If you goole the asin gearbox there is an interesting article online all about it and its weekness's. one is 'flair' during cold gear change, which is what most aftermarket kits address. The parts arnt expensive but r&d can be.
  21. There is a chap in the exiges section tht has done it, didnt make a massive difference I dont think. I thought it was more to reduce slippage (especially in higher output cars) than gear change times?
  22. Just bare in mind there are 2 versions of the recaro, one with high seat bolsters as in the Evora and one with low seat bolsters as in some land rovers.
