Lotus silverstone now have in a new 410 and new 350 which I didn't realise was getting the same new front bumper, from the 430/410. 

I was pretty disappointed that the salesman seemed to know less about the car than me.. 🙈

It might be lighter (and cheaper for Lotus), but I think that looks horrible without the covers and “Lotus Performance” plaque on the supercharger. Just as well they’ve ditched the glass hatch so you don’t have to look at it. 😁

I agree i'm not a fan of it silver, looks unfinished. I take it they didn't consult any of there customers when considering changing this.

I'm not a fan of plastic trims in engine bays. I preferred the black supercharger, and it definitely needs a Lotus Performance plaque.

Nope - it would have been done to save a few quid per car - no idea how much it would cost to have it painted black from the mfr, but would guess at most £20 per unit and it does look crap in silver as does the chargecooler now in silver with the black lid.

When i got my Evora 410 and looked into the engine bay I have to say I was very disappointed to see the silver charge cooler with the black cover. Just looked cheap. However, has now impact on the driving of the car and is quickly forgotten about.

Not a surprise really is it, I thought Lotus would wait 1 year, change 0.1% on wheel camber, and announce the new Exige ..

No this is excellent news and much more like it!  That's a significant price adjustment and I love the clear message it is sending out. Bravo Lotus. I was wavering, you've put me back straight....

Anyone who has a Sport 410 throughout the EU will have the price corrected and a credit issued to their dealer from Lotus :)

doesn’t the new lower price mean less spec?

At the risk of being called a moaner, they probably just removed £10k worth of parts (at Lotus option list pricing) and reduced the base price by £6k - pure win win. With that in mind, though, those who bought recently or will buy cars from stock are in a good position and it is a fairly classy move (should also help to clear the potentially significant stock)

“Re-aligning” the price does no harm, and the retrospective refund is great, but...

Removing the rose-tinted specs, could this be viewed as a way of shifting some forecourt stock before then selling a car (realistically) worth £75k for £85k, instead of one worth £80k for £90k  (once the carbon and Nitrons are gone).

Sorry for the injection of cynicism, but it’s still too expensive compared to what you get in a 350 Sport for £60k.
