It's changed my life more than getting the car did.  I can honestly say that.  But truly, the Lotus was integral to the promise I made myself to get a bit fitter and more comfy in my own skin.  I star

Just arrived and picking it up tomorrow. Next up is GT 430 CF rear wing and CF front bumper.

I think you get a compulsory 2 day ban, and sit in a corner to consider your actions, for mentioning the b word.

@KG So that blue one is yours? It's gorgeous! Please post pictures and updated pictures when you get the wing and bumper on! 

You and I have very similar tastes it seems. I went with Essex Blue but everything else we specked the same - High Power Silver Forged Wheels, red calipers, carbon pack, red cat scratches etc. I got the red stripes on the seats too, but I went with the black interior panel pieces. We both ordered from Gator too. For a split second I thought this was mine, but I'm sure Brian would have contacted me first before just posting up pictures. This is the first one I've seen in Nightfall Blue - still surprised I haven't seen any in Essex yet. Maybe I'll be the first one! 😁

I really wish Lotus would have had the option to order the brake calipers in the body paint color of the car 😕 this Isotope Green would have been amazing with matching calipers.

Not to late to jump ship and get the Isotope green one. Someone would want the Essex blue!

I know I could always paint them, but I don't feel like I should have to spend more money on top of MSRP to pay for something that should have been done from the factory. 

And @ken2020 I'm actually not a huge fan of that Isotope Green. Verde Ithaca looks miles better imo if I were wanting a loud color like that - which I don't. I feel like those colors are awesome for those who have multiple cars and not planning to drive it every day. But for someone like me who plans to drive it as a daily, I feel like I would get tired of a color that loud eventually. Also it needs the diamond cut wheels for me 😁

Stunning Kostas, Nightfall Blue works so well on an Evora, loved it on my Elise too. Very classy colour which does something special in direct sunlight. 👍

No GT430 in that colour to my knowledge which is a shame but at least we'll get to see what everyone else was missing!

Really - name me the manufacturers who will paint your calipers for free in a colour of your choice, body colour or not?  I'd be surprised if there are many if any.

 

I'm pretty sure it would cost option on Nissan GTR, Porker, Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Macca, Fezza, etc.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

You’re misunderstanding. I’m saying Lotus won’t allow you to order the calipers in any colors other than red yellow or black at all - even if you wanted to pay them to do so. They just buy the calipers straight from AP Racing already painted. 

But they should have an option to paint the calipers in any color you want straight from the factory. Or at least an option to paint match them to the body color of the car.

OK I don't really see the problem here. Pay Lotus to take the painted calipers that they buy in and get them to paint a different colour, or, ask your dealer to get the calipers painted in the colour you want for a fee, probably the same cost. Either way you get what you want and yes, probably a slight time delay.

If your debating buying the exhaust. As much as it hurt.  It has really made a difference in sound and looks.

I love my Ti exhaust, took a few seconds to commit to that pricy option, but the sound is amazing and 20 lbs off the ass is always a good thing.
