My new acquisition. Can't believe I've finally got one! 

Are we talking about Racing Green Lotus'?  Here's the most recent one of it being clean, at Caffeine & Machine. 8,300 miles in five months means it's rarely clean! 

Some impressiones from the Nürburgring 26-27.07.20 (driver corse XL Nordschleife) in the third photo you can see the vehicles of my training group there were a total of 20 groups.

Is that a Win Ace front bumper?

Looks like a very good fit. I've been contemplating one of these, as part of a possible group buy happening here, but had that niggling doubt in the back of my mind over 'fit and finish'. Going by your pic, I've got nothing to worry about.

I'm VERY happy with it. I had to do some very minor adjustments prior to bringing to the paint shop but overall, it fit very good out of the box.

And, another shot my nephew took (he's a better photographer then me!)...

This looks a lot like a Mansory kit, not a real GTE or 350.   Maybe you can't buy one.    But you can build one.   It just takes forever .....   ;-)

That winace front bumper looks great @ChromeOrange, I was following the thread on LT with interest and the general concensus seams to be it's a well made, well finished piece of kit.

Do you know how different the front clearance is to standard (attack angle or whatever it may be called)? My current car (with the @TBD front splitter extender) JUST about allows me to get up my drive, I'd be worried that with the winace front bumper and lip I'd be stuck not getting my car up.

I think you're car looks superb. Just enough black, without too much. Very nicely done Sir.

Yeah, I think the bumper cf bits go well with the rest of my cf (front hatch, A pillers, mirrors, scoops, wing, diffuser, sail panel)

As far as the angle... it definitely has changed. I haven't actually measure it, but I think this sits about the same height as OEM but projects about 3 1/2 " further out. I can take measurements today if you would like that you can use to compare to your OEM.

I have a horseshoe driveway. With the OEM, I could enter/exit from either end or angle. But, not anymore. Now I can enter from either end but only exit out one end. And, Its very close on two other driveways I regularly use. So close that I literally crawl into the driveway. But, clear is clear :) 

I plan to make up some under bumper protection that I will bond to the bottom of the bumper. But, for now, I'll be very careful over bumps and driveways.

Hmmmm. Will check on mine as @TBD splitter iis about 2.5" longer I think. I crawl up my first drive bit now, but think it may be just too much for it. Shame, as they've done a great job fitting it to the thinner front wings of the normal Evora to the gate.

I have similar thoughts as my Evora has been on 7 ferry trips and with the standard bumper I don't have to worry much - I worry more about bags and doors from other cars. I think this has put me off changing the front bumper. Still plenty of other things to spend the money on - I do fancy a cf sail panel, but has anybody weighed one to see if they actually save any weight too?

I have rubber ramps made from re-cycled car tires, that decrease the approach angle to the curb.   Do you have anything like that available to you?   Here, it's called an Eco-Flex EZ Curb Ramp ....

If I measured it right, it looks like a 8 or 9 degree approach angle instead of the 11 degree stock. The front leading edge of the cf is 6 7/8" high from the ground. And the same edge protrudes 7 11/16" out from the seam of where the clam meets the bumper (up by the LOTUS badge).

Ok. My drive goes up steep at the start, so not a kerb issue, more a ramp angle issue if that makes sense @aerobat

Thanks ChromeOrange. Will need to work out how to measure against my drive - feels like a Blue Peter sticky backed cardboard project. The UK guys, after they've stopped swooning over Valerie Singleton, will know what I mean!

Just joining the party a bit late here but that is stunning.  :wub:

Alfa2Evora I'd be up for hearing more for sure if a group buy as the front is the worst view of the present car for sure (IMHO) and I am less than a closet GTE fanboy but just can't afford one.  I also like the way Chrome orange has done his rear wing as that is exactly like how I'd do it and have the pylons in body colour.  I'm away for some more fantasy time.

Gave the Evora  a wash and polish today as the missus and nipper are away at the grandparents for a few days. Front splitter now installed courtesy of Alfa2Evora (thanks David). Adds a bit of bite to the front which I think it needed.

She's looking good Chris :D I'll confess - it looks much much better with the standard cast wheels, than the anthracite ones I had on. When I put them on just prior to selling, I wondered why I even had the anthracites :D This is all a little incestuous though - David (Alfa2Evora) has the GT4 rear wing from your Evora now... All you need is for either yourself or David to buy my CF rear engine bay cover ;)

Thanks Tom. I would like to put a set of silver forged wheels on, though I have to admit as far as 'base spec' wheels go these are pretty good! Sadly no more spending for a while as nipper #2 is on the way, I even justified the splitter as protection for the bumper! (the only time I damaged my old Elise was scraping the bumper on a higher than expected kerb in a car park...) Otherwise I'd be complementing the 2bular exhaust back box with a manifold and CAI and add a GTE bumper and a rear wing...

 

Incidentally you don't have any documentation for the 2bular valve system electronics do you? I'm waiting for Jim to send me down a new control box as it's threw a wobbly a couple of weeks back and isn't listening to either of the remote fobs...
