@Stuno1 - a guy in the US on Lotustalk (sorry for swearing) was making them, I think out of a polycarbonate and they looked fantastic, where shaped to mirror the Evora front lip perfectly and seemed to get good reports. It'll be an easy search (try "Evora Front Plitter") to find him and I think he still is making them. Pictures below and I think they look fantastic especially if you don't have the SR front spoiler black look.

 

A word of caution though, as they do need to be screwed and glued down very well as I read of a couple of add-on front splitters for the Evora that "came away" at very high speed and was quite frightening for the owners concerned. I think the wind pressure etc. at very high speeds is considerable on them.

I did make a 2-part design for the front splitter that I had on the Evora S: http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/70578-front-splitter/?p=543762

 

These were made of polycarbonate and ounted using the original bottom screws plus 2 additional front edge mounting screws. The 2-part design matches european license plates and is much easier to ship. Proven safe up to 300 Km/h.

 

I can have new ones made if there is a group buy (min 5 sets). € 250 incl. shipping within Europe.

I don't suppose you took any pictures of the underside to show fitting?

Not sure what title goes with this picture:

The beauty and the beast? Dangerous liaisons? Need for speed?

The fact is that this was parked next to my car when I picked it up in the evening...

Is that a custom color? It doesn't look like Ardent or any of the other reds, really. Or maybe just great lighting?

Interesting lighting then. In this picture it almost looks like a chrome red. Great shot!

So, I was at Hethel this morning. Picked a mid-month present up for myself. Given the carbon fibre engine cover @LotusFestival was an unintended purchase, I skipped over it when it came to budget planning and continued with the GT4 rear wing :D Christmas in August :D

Beautiful colour car that one Kalli, very, very nice.

 

When I first got my Evora I lusted after the GT4 wing, after having a seen a few pictures over the last few days now I am really not too sure. Don;t like the black wing supports and wing. Think if I had one I would get the wing supports painted body colour - then the decision would be to paint the wing body colour or leave black. Just not feeling the love for the all black wing and supports....

 

Hmmmm,,,, life's decisions are tough.... hahaha

Completely in the same place. This one was pre-painted by Lotus and ready to roll at a decent price. My end-goal would be to get the struts painted in Canyon Red too. But one step at a time :) 

 

There's something to be said for seeing the wing in the side mirrors thought :D And I can say that it doesnt look 'too big' for a non-GTE body. Infact, after seeing it on mine, i'd question if its too small for a GTE.

OK, you MUST post up some pics when you get the struts painted or I'll find out where you live and thrash you to an inch of your life with a blunt feather duster. So there!

 

Did Lotus paint on the "Lotus" in white for you too? Hmmm, some nice modding going on with users of this forum. Who knows one day we might catch up with the Evora modders over the pond who've been very active over the past few years.

 

I really do like that canyon red colour Kalli, shame it is not available on the Evora 400 - but then the metallic orange on the 400 looks fab.
