OMFG - What have I gone and done that for.........

Friday is approaching and I am having more than a number of thoughts as to whether I have done the right thing. The car just ticked over the 25k miles during the journey. I mean, after almost 8 years, it is barely just run in! OMFG. What have I done....

I love the 400, but I also loved the S1 so I sometimes still ask myself that question, 19 months on. Perhaps we should have kept both. :thumbsup:

Enjoy today and your long journey home.:driving:

I was trying to buy your Red Evora. I was booked in to view it tomorrow, but just got an email telling me its sold, so I was beaten to it!! 

Poo!!

It looked like a good one as well, hopefully somebody on here has got a result!!

Good luck today Andy, you've certainly the weather for it!

Having made a similar transition last October, I can attest to the fact that there will be some things you will miss from the S1.  The S1 Evora remains a very capable, much underrated drivers car.  

You will find the new car almost indescribably different - my take away is that the later iteration is just much "more" than the S1.  Hope you have a great journey home, and look forward to the phots!

Unfortunately with cars as well known as one or two on here (including Andy's) I'm afraid it's probably a case of buy it unseen or miss it.

If it makes you feel any better I can confirm it was a right old heap.

 

 

 

I'd be lying though :makeotherhappy:

I know who beat you to it and they will  be along on here I am sure at some point.

I am just about to leave the office in Telford to head to Lotus Silverstone and to meet Aimee for the swap.

As most of you guessed, I have bought another Evora. A +0 (the +2's are for babies). It's a spanker too. Will post up a new thread tonight with the details.

I'm actually not going to be going back to Scotland. Wife is away with her girlfriends for the weekend. So I have booked a nice hotel tonight (The Priest house near Nottingham) for tonight. Will meet the wife in the morning after breakfast at her hotel in Nottingham to show her the new motor, then it is a day of cross country driving through the black country through to the Shropshire Hills and then onto the Malverns.  Nice country house hotel for Saturday night and then the playground that is the Cotswolds and surrounding area before heading to Reading for Sunday night as working there Monday and Tuesday.  Back home on Wednesday.  Looking forward to a quiet weekend, just me and the new car. Heaven.

Umm waiting ....... drums fingers impatiently

Lovely picture with your old car in the background posted up by Lotus Silverstone! I’d have come & met you in the Cotswolds but B&C aren’t bringing my car back to me until Monday 🙁

Congrats Andy, beautiful 410. If I was in the market that would be the one. Looking forward to seeing it on the next LEGS run. Fire Red really does it for me. Reminds me of the old Esprit Canyon Red.

To be frank, given the love you've shown for my Esprit, I half suspected you'd gone after this...

Looks great Andy :thumbsup:, one I kept staring at for ages every time I looked on the Silverstone web site. A bit miffed though that you've taken my 5 minute dream every few days away :(

Enjoy your "long way round" trip back to the bonnie land. 

Saw that you also made the announcement on the thread on .org. Come on @jonnyboy, when are you going to spill the beans to the jealous Evora haters on there?

Welcome to the club :D

@PaulCP are they really Evora haters do you think? I suppose at some point you have to move on . I seem to recall you had yours a long time but I have been a bit useless at keeping the same one for long. 2.5 years into the current one.

I wasn't really fussed for putting a post on there didn't want it to be misinterpreted as willy waving I think there's enough of that goes on there!
