Deep Verdant is nice with the Silver wheels but the body will need a lot of work to get it to stand out…..whereas some (for some - see all of the others…) of the colours won’t need as much as TLC to pop! Each to their own though👍😎

Love it

That ^^^^^^ does look great Scotty - Magma red with red leather was my original choice for a V6 FE, then I bottled on pretty much everything and now I have absolutely no idea what (or even if) I will eventually go for :lol:

EDIT 'Mine' had silver wheels though :)

If it looks as good in the flesh I could be changing my spec. Can see them sat together at Hassop now lol.

I'm very surprised hiw labour intensive the Emira production line is. I expected more robotics 😲

Note the girl at the end watching and making notes on a clipboard. Hardly 21st C 😲

I am with you on the surprise Rambo. All the press releases seemed to suggest robots and modern construction and there's a fella with a hand drill making holes in Aluminium... Nothing wrong with that, just not what I thought was happening!

I went on the factory tour and was told that the Toyota gear box is not made to order but is a standard Toyota box that has to be machined and adapted to fit the Emira once it reaches the Hethel factory which didn’t make sense.

Yes your probably right just a shame this part of the production process wasn’t updated alongside the introduction of robots. I imagine a room where the gear boxes are being taken apart and filed down by hand ☹️

It’s all about cost analysis. No point having robots if it takes up more space and costs more than it saves.

only automate if it saves considerably more than it costs. You only need to look at AMG building that i4 engine - there’s a lot of it done by hand

Does the manual Emira come with an LSD?

If so, the LSD isn’t part of the standard Toyota gearbox so would have to be added afterwards.

Yes, LSD on the V6 manual.  I think there's a bit of machining to either the starter motor or the engine casing to get the starter to fit too.

Spot on, I worked at the largest and most automated plant in Europe (within its sector). The ongoing costs of automation was a major contributing factor to the demise of the company.

Spotted this test drive on fb. The roads in Dallas look shocking!
