Christmas comes early


Recommended Posts

Thanks to the sterling effort of Graeme, Caig and Alan at Murray Motor Company I picked up my Evora earlier today. A big thank you to all concerned for getting everything ready in a few short days, including having the alloys done in satin black, which really suits the storm titanium, and getting the winter tyres fitted - certainly money well spent there - I think I was the most nervous man in the country as I made my way to Edinburgh in the Exige on 48s.

I may have only driven the car the 25 miles from Edinburgh to Kirkcaldy, but can already confirm all that has previously been said about the excellent ride, steering and brakes. Oh, and the sound of the v6 through the sports exhaust - fantastic. The c/r gearbox also suits the car.

In summary, my new Lotus is not only Lotus, but also a proper car, and I'm not sure I can pay it any greater tribute than that.


You appear with the tedious inevitability of an unwelcome season.

Now that's a present! Think I'd be taking the turkey and sprouts out to eat in the car. :)

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Happy Christmas, I thought I was doing well getting the wheels and winter tyres from Santa!

Look forward to seeing you & the car out on one of our runs do you fancy showing it off at Club Lotus night on Wednesday 12th? Just follow Brian! (Bingoking)
