  1. My 2019 van has lane departure warning and it doesn't bother me. The two things that do are the stop start, it stops as you are pulling up, so if it's a give way and you continue to pull out there is a delay while it starts and then tries to catch up. To me it shouldn't stop until the vehicle stops. The other is the automatic braking to stop a collision. Every now and again if some one is turning left its still picks them up as stationary as they turn and slams my brakes on for a fraction second until there gone. It's all heading down the route of autonomous vehicles, so no room for fun driving vehicles that I can see.
  2. £200 month isnt massive but i can fully appreciate if things are tight its an easy expense to off load. I did this in the last recession, i was lotus-less for 3 years, but jumped back on board as soon as I could. All 2nd hand car prices are high at the moment, I think Evoras may dip a little when current owners trade in for Emiras thus putting a few back on the market. A well sorted car will always sell quickly if realistically priced. I would personally be tempted to hang on for a bit but I do use mine over winter and it is garaged when not in use. A car is replaceable, your health & family arent. Do what you need to do and when things pick up you can always return. Good luck with what ever you decide.
  3. Only to find they either left it with a neighbour or threw it over your fence 🤣😂
  4. So will I get it delivered free the next day if I order it through amazon, as I already have prime 🤣
  5. This may seem odd but does your horn work? I had an issue with mine going off randomly after a few mins with no hazards, I found my horn fuse had blown. Replaced and all ok. Try checking other fuses. Gav
  6. @AlI did the same tour but put the then Mrs in the car with Martin Donnelly, she never complained about my driving again 😂🤣
  7. You don't get on with your neighbours then 😂🤣
  8. I had a valved 2bular exhaust on my n/a that @Alfa2Evoranow owns. I will let him describe it. 😁

    Evora GTE Registry

    Nice to see no 8 and no 10 at the classic today.
  10. Could you feed a wire through the end of the clip and pull it off?
  11. They loose pressure over time, the signs are that they work when hot, but not when cold. Just replace them, they arent expensive from louts but you can get even cheaper suzuki ones to match. Cant remember the spec but im sure a search would find it.
  12. I got a price of foam and I got some tan alcantara, similar in colour to seats, to cover it. This was to allow to carry a child seat without digging into the seat.
  13. Then someone questioned his source 🤣😂
  14. That torque wrench that went round 2or 3 corners was mad 🤣😂

    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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. Hows your head? 😂, glad its made a difference for the better!
  21. Don't forget the paracetamol before you start, hopefully you won't get a headache from the fumes then 🤣😂
  22. Im still intereste in getting one, but realistically anyone else interested would need to be northwest based to make it practical delivery wise. Gav
