I agree, it looks really classy as it is. 😎

Where is that amazing road! Lotus territory :>)

I agree, too.👍

Must admit I went through the same process of thinking about a "Sports Racer" wrap, but haven't changed a thing (cosmetically, anyway) since buying mine.

That's the Gifford to Duns road - it's right on my doorstep. 

I was off to have a look at the Jim Clark museum (in Duns), but should have checked the website first as it was closed!  Never mind - any excuse for a trip across the hills in the Evora!

Enjoy the space and freedom :>)

... or 'Godforsakeus' - as some of the cheekier locals call it!  :)

Perhaps a rename as 'Evoraforus' might be on the cards soon then!

Had the S for a week now - and absolutely love it!

It's a 2011 model with 15k miles.

I had early thoughts about customising the car with black-packs, black wheels, black lettering, red calipers, etc. but I'm starting to think that it looks really classy the way it is, so I might well leave it alone.  

It needs a louder voice though, so a 2bular full system is on it's way!

Almost the exact twin of my 2011 S - and I thought mine was low mileage with 21,000!  Interesting that yours has silver door handles rather than the standard body-coloured ones.  I think silver was the standard on the launch cars but was then phased out.  Roads look fantastic.  Here's mine in another natural Lotus habitat:

Looks good Tom!  But then I would say that!  😉

I seem to recall reading somewhere that body coloured door handles were a £400-ish option on the early S.  😮  

I'm pretty happy with the spec of my car.  An Alpine ILX-700 and reverse-camera arrived today, and I'll get that fitted once the double-DIN supports arrive from Lotus - the only other thing that I *might* do is get the cloth covered lower panels re-trimmed to match the uppers.  I've been quoted £1200 (which seems quite reasonable).

A friend just posted this up as a 'memory' on Facebook.

It's from 2 years ago at the Royal Deeside Speed Festival - I didn't see it when she originally posted it and it's the first time I've really heard what my P&J sounds like from the outside, exhaling through its 2bular with the valve open.

Crank the volume up to 11! :driving:

I'm sure that there was something else there that's missing in that shot 🤔

I liked the look of the GTs front so much, but I can’t possibly afford one, so I did the best I could to ape the look and rid myself of the ugly plastic number plate mount, partially hiding my rusting grill too!

I like it, so please don’t tell me I’ve seriously impeded the airflow to the radiator :)
