Popular Post pixelmix Posted April 4, 2022 Popular Post Report Share Posted April 4, 2022 Hello all. I thought I should do a proper introduction since I'm sure I'll be around here for a while looking for advice. I've been half-heartedly looking for a third car for a while (work to the house got in the way a bit), and I have gone through various options but always had Lotus towards the top of the list. Having two young (and short) children, I eventually decided that I would get more use out of an Evora than an Elise, at least for the next few years. I've managed to find a car which is well known to this forum, having been owned by at least 3 forum members including @21gg (judging by the previous number plate history) and @Reindeer. It is higher mileage than I set out looking for, but seems to have been well loved. It also would not have been my first choice colour, but there are so few Evoras around at my budget, that I can live with that - it's still a very smart looking car. After delaying collection due to covid, I've driven it 185mi home and had it out a couple of times over the weekend with the family. There was a nervous moment when I reversed it into the garage as it scraped on the ground, but thankfully it was only the front numberplate, which I've temporarily re-mounted slightly higher. Not much planned in the short term: the first job will be finding out why the passenger seat won't currently slide but everything else seems okay. I might yet ditch the private plate which the DVLA re-assigned to the car (let me know @Reindeerif you would like it back) and as the alloys will need refurbed eventually (for a couple of small bubbling marks), I need to decide whether to make them bright silver like @Ericski's smart wheels in the SR thread, or keep them black to maintain the original black pack look. 🤔 Otherwise, it will be off to Craig Moncrieff in October for a service and a once over. I've no decent photos yet but here is a quick snap (covered in road salt from the drive home before it got washed). 9 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
