Do you know I was within a Gnat's Fanny of calling Chris at Westover and asking him for some figures before you posted up?

I'm pretty happy with my car to be honest - but loved the colour and a newer car just tickled my fancy.  

Knock yourself out!

Are you local-ish to Westover?

Cheers Colin!

I am local to Westover - about a mile down the road! So my Evora search has basically taken me about 1 week and a 2 mile round trip!

Many photos to follow!!

Cheers for all the advice.

Also - funny coincidence. I'd been texting a petrolhead friend of mine to share me excitement. It turns out he knew someone at Lotus he was going to suggest I chat to. Turns out the guy he knows is Martin Donnelly (former owner apparently!).. small world ey!

I look forward to multiple photos convincing me I was wrong to pass over Daytona. :)

Congrats :thumbup:

I think the colour really suits the car and was almost tempted by the one they had at MMC during the summer, until I saw the blue one that I ended up buying.

Ironically, every Evora I've seen in this colour was an IPS version

I'm nearly there!! Just waiting on someone buying my current car before I commit to a low part ex price. 

Youre right though - it's still technically up for grabs!

Nah I'm keeping the Elan... I probably have about 10 grand in the Elan and wouldn't have thought it would be worth more than 3-4 PX. I'm part exchanging 2 cars!.. My BMW M135i and a Mercedes CLS 350. Long story how I ended up with both!

Superb! Look forward to your first report.

Isn't the M135i the one people are falling over themselves to buy? Not really up on my BMW's due to a now ingrained problem with German cars (having owned a few!) in my tiny brain........

Yeah the m135i is really good and pretty popular. Unfortunately it's very easy to wander into a BMW dealer and get one new with a decent discount so selling privately has been slow going! I'm hoping I can flog it in the next few weeks while they prep the Evora

Bugger, I was hoping to buy it :(, but didn't get my car up for sale fast enough due to father in law passing to the next world

 

Exhaust is apparently a custom made tubular one

 

Enjoy it, its a lovely car, my perfect spec

Cheers guys! Extremely excited!! 

Funny you should mention the exhaust... Sounds amazing on full chat but wondering if it might grate a bit with the car being my daily driver... Will see how it goes!

Allow me to be the first in to offer a trade for a standard one plus cash if it does! :D

Hmmm, I'm confused now. To the OP - maybe you didn't get MD's car after all. Maybe you can confirm, Bibs?

Martin and I had matching Evora's. The one I posted was my one. I know which one I'd rather own :D
