First time Lotus owner - Evora

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to introduce myself as a newbie first time Lotus owner.

I have recently become the proud new owner of a white Evora LE. After much deliberation (Exige S or Evora) I am happy with the choice I have made, I like the refinement and just don't think I am hardcore enough to have lived with the Exige on a day to day basis.

As a kid I dreamt of being being behind the wheel of an Esprit, I now feel like a dream is realised as I look at the Evora as being the latest incarnation of the Esprit (as we are unlikely to see a new Esprit model now). The Evora amazes every time I jump behind the wheel, I love the steering directness, the supple ride, the looks and the attention it gets. The individuality of the Evora also made it an easy choice over a Porsche. My only criticisms so far are the complete unuseability of the Alpine sat nav head unit and the Toyota sound track (it just doesn't sound like it looks), however both issues are well documented on the forum and easily addressed.

Welcome Rick,

The same feelings with with me when I got my first one and after Porsches. :bounce:

Don't worry, the Alpine will not grow on you although it does get easier moving around in the menus so you can at least get back to where you started. An Apple product it isn't!! :censored:

Sounds are easy to change relatively cheaply as well. :thumbsup:

As a Lotus collector for 20 years with impending Evora ownership I congratulate you on your excellent taste and hope you get as much out of Lotus ownership as I have.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.
