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!

Proper wheels 👍, IMO one of the best wheels Lotus did for the S1. Matt machined silver finish (unfortunately diamond cut) with anthracite background)

I have black wheels on my blue NA - which I like even though I tend not to generally - but those do look wonderful.  Are they Lotus OEM, or some other make? I might keep my eyes out for those in the future.

Yes, they're the 19/20" diamond cut wheels that were standard on the S.  I have them on mine.  They look great but after 9 years need a refurb as the diamond cut finish can lead to the surface blowing and any curbing damage is very obvious.  They are complicated to refurb and a lot of places won't warranty them.

I think the 19/20 were optional on the "S" (pretty sure that I had to pay for the ones on my car 😉, the "s" got the 18/19 "normal design" but in gunmetal as standard, 19/20 in black were standard with the SR edition later

If you do find someone Tom let me know. I have a spare set of wheels that I'd like to out back to standard S. The ribs are a gunmetal grey/silver of some sort as I recall with the diamond cut on the faces.  I asked a couple of places in the UK but haven't found anyone yet who will take it on.

 

Re the S . Mine came with 19/20's but the diamond cut were the optional bit.

I kerbed one of mine and had it refurbed back to brand new via Lotus Silverstone. I believe Matt sent it to somewhere around Swindon.
IIRC it cost me £100 but I was happy with that since the car was only a few months old at the time

Phil Marking in service at Bell & Colvill can get diamond cut wheels refurbished / re cut.
 

Imho they are the best Evora wheels and do miss them off my old S 🙂

Thanks for the suggestions on refurbing the diamond cut alloys.  I'd heard B&C had a supplier who could warrant them and I think Back on Track use the same supplier.  Lepsons had been suggested to me before too.  I've been toying with going for a single colour (matte silver/grey) non-diamond cut hence why I haven't done it yet.

Anyway, back to the pictures...
