Regret buying a final edition?


Recommended Posts

Update on the build of my car:

The good news is, as of this morning, there are no shortages regarding the car, so they can get on and finish it.

I wouldn't take it as read, as I wasn't told this, but hopefully that might also apply to any other Exiges at the same stage of build ;) 

It will need to follow normal process, so full geometry, water test, paint inspection, paint rectification, test and drive, audit and clean, inspection and detail before PTS, but hopefully that will be perhaps only 2-3 days or so.

Good news here too, had a set of photo's through from Lotus (thanks Scott Walker) showing mine coming off the production line. Pretty much the same story as @David Standing, more wet tests and will be completed by end of the week. 

Really think I need to reconsider the choice of seat covers though ...

Can't see mine in the background - I've a Fire Red Cup 250 which is due to be completed 11th Oct.  Did you email Scott directly for the pics?  Surprised you got some due to the Emira roadshow.  

Car looks stunning btw, you must be very pleased.

It's one of those days, when you get good and bad news together. I got info that my car was completed a week ago and awaing transportation. Car looks amazing, there is just something that bothers me. I ordered non-black-pack version and they built it with black pack. Tomorrow I need to talk to few people and figure out where it went wrong and if they can rectify this. I like the car, but it's just a sour feeling of spending this amount of money on the car and getting something else than you wanted.

On the plus-side, you've managed to catch the problem before it left the factory, so hopefully they can put it right quickly and you'll get the correct spec. would have been much worse to have had it delivered and then had to return it.

Ah, that's a bugger, I don't envy you the sinking feeling of seeing that.  Did you order the back panel in body colour?  Otherwise, I think the rest of the black pack is bolt on stuff isn't it, which is doable? (although the bits will have to go in the paint shop)

My car is getting closer... Should be delivered in just over a week's time. The closer you get, the harder the wait is!
(Note for clarity: this is a dealer car over here in NZ, not a factory in build).

That's a proper Exige colour. Exiges suit loud and proud, slightly wild, attention grabbing colours I think. Looks way better than I'd imagined.

Thanks.  Deleting the black pack suits it too I think.  If you are going Crazy, go for maximum Plum! 😁

It comes up a bit paler in that artificial light, it's slightly darker in natural light, the last image - of the rear - is closer to the real Plum Crazy.

That purple @David Standingis beuatiful, the yellow details really set it off nice.  Lovely car that.

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Thank you.  I'm also going to swop out the Sport decals for yellow ones, plus add yellow union jack wing endplates.

Pics of the seats please 

Can do, but won't be able to do so until it arrives at the dealer.
