No, main reason was getting the money together as there was a hiccup at Easter - set me back a bit but managed to get it all sorted. The last fortnight has just been getting everything in place.

Very very nice. Congratulations. Pictures of the interior please and those seat rears.....

@Cocopops will be very jealous I'm sure. He likes yellow things.....

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Thankyou gents. I will get some better pictures of the seat rears when I can. They're buggers to photograph as it's not a particularly spacious car to get in the back!

Fortunately the side of the seats is quite deep so looking in the side window you still appreciate what's gone on, just lifts the interior a little bit IMHO. It's leather with contrast stitching.

Other options are cruise, black pack, forged black wheels, all the usual refinements.

Painted seat backs no good for me, I doubt they would stand up to kiddies.

I am quite jealous of the car over all though. :thumbsup:

Oh silly me, and here was me thinking that the BEST THING IN THE WORLD was that the Evora was a +2. Oh, so you can't get in the back. I'm so glad I bought a +0 then.  hahahaha, oh yes, keep lining the balls up and I'll kick them. Back of the net. Sick. Oh that made me so very happy (oooppps, that's another topic, sorry for going Off Topic there!)

Just the seat backs. I had actually requested the "LOTUS" logo in the centre be put back, I appear to be in a minority that like it, but it's not available anymore!

The only other thing I got chucked in with the deal were a couple of Lotus branded items of clothing ;)

I'll probably make more changes as I go along, I've no particular interest in originality - that being said the car's damn good as standard. It's mostly the stereo I am paying attention to, the speaker in the back doesn't seem to be doing anything (I've done the audio setup guide)

There is.

This does have the distinction of being the only car I've ever owned where I have absolutely zero intention of putting an aftermarket exhaust on it.

I'm currently undecided whether it's the second best sounding car I've ever heard ,or the joint first

Jay. Love the seat backs, really lifts the interior and is very very classy in my book. Congrats on a truly stunning looking car.

Thanks Andy. My neighbour had a good look at it this evening, and a passenger ride. He thought I was going to buy a Ferrari or a Lamborghini but he reckoned I had made the right choice. I can't help but agree, this thing really is quite special.
