    Nice to see Gav’s (21GG) GTE parked at Goodwood today. It was getting plenty of attention. Needs a wash when you get it all the way back home though. There can’t be many of us original owners still left.

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 🤣 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?

     

  4. 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?

  5. 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.
