You will love it chap - it’s a fantastic machine.

make sure you drive it as it should be driven - if you don’t see the magic rings then you are missing out on where the fun is

Well Alan, the next few days are going to feel really long and drag and drag lol - until it actually arrives - same feeling but bit like waiting for Xmas as a kid 👍😁

I’m sure you will love it and pamper it. You’ll probably do what most of us do - To start with you’ll keep sneaking a peek into the garage and pinching yourself.

Most importantly - enjoy ownership, It’s very rewarding and enjoyable, and a great bunch of guys here to get some info/help if/when wanted.

And finally - go dust that expectant garage 😜 and get posting some pictures up.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

What a great story and you have picked a lovely Evora to make your formal acquaintance with Lotus. If you don't like Evora, it is you, not the car. 

Warm up the engine and oil (10 minutes minimum) and then use all those revs. I hardly use 5th and 6th in the UK.......that singing engine on the motorways in 3rd and 4th is just heaven. 

It is gonna be a long week...........

It is a long wait but worth it ! I waited 3 weeks for my car to be prepared also had to transfer my private reg over as I wanted my car being delivered to me with my reg in place 

bonus at least the weather is picking up and lockdown easing means you can get to enjoy the car

Congrats and welcome to the family!   You picked a good time to get the new car.   Days are getting longer and warmer, the conditions are getting better for windows down driving and enjoying the lovely sound of that V6 engine!

Similar story here.... loved the Esprit for 35 or so years...just last week I finally have a Lotus in my garage.  Living in the states I have a new 2021 GT, truly an amazing car!

I was debating on getting a esprit but was worried I couldn’t drive it reliably like I want to,  kinda daily driver with some track days and the old esprit really had me worried.  JayEmm is actually who turned me onto the evora

i take my GT in for it’s 1,000 mile first service this week, have a few small issues but no regrets.  The sound this car makes and the way it feels is truly amazing!
