I was just looking at photos and strange how some have a watermark stating “image property of Autotrader”. 
I’m wandering if Autotrader used to have watermarks and these are old saved down photos? 

Yeah that does seem a bit strange, I cant see that water mark on any other adverts on Autotrader. I wonder why they would use older photo's?

Just saw this one at Hofmann’s. The GT410 Sports seem to be softening a little bit didn’t feel like long ago they were £75k minimum.

At this price point I’m tempted to ditch my Emira deposit. 

Why don't you? It makes much more sense to me. And think of that £2k+ 1st year road tax you will save 🤔

It's a no brainer to me

Note that Hoffman's are no longer official dealers so they can't offer a Lotus warranty and also probably want to offload Lotus stock now, hence the price drop. Could be a good opportunity to grab it at a good price.

Have these been flagged up? - two newish adverts on PH:

Aquamarine / Oyster with black pack: https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/13851879, looks like a good price

Low mileage white LE: https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/13875424, bit more expensive but low mileage and looks excellent

White one rather overpriced IMO - LEs aren’t specifically desirable (many also came with the long ratio box) and mileage I would say is average rather than low.

Given a straight choice I’d take the aquamarine one!

@jerzybondov that was my feeling too about the price of the white one, especially as I'm the owner of a Launch Edition on just a smidgeon over half the mileage, plus the passenger airbag cover on the white one has warped so knock off nearly £1k from the word go.

I like aquamarine, I like Oyster interior, I like the black pack... I for some reason don't seem to like all of those together. To my eye it looks a bit too busy. Normally I would definitely want the roof black but perhaps this colour combo is the one time I would keep it in colour.

@EuropaSman - good spot on the blasted airbag cover on the LE!  

It's the first picture I've seen of an Aqua with the lower black pack (I don't particularly like the black roof) and I'm still quite tempted to do that for mine...

I think the black top and bottom looks good on the aqua

It just needs silver wheels. Will look good then.

Black wheels are hard to photograph well. I think the combo works, although agree above the aqua, oyster and black is maybe too much.

Sorry, but I do like aquamarine with silver wheels. It is one of the colours that doesn't suit the black pack, like...errrrrr black!

The White one makes mine the best investment I ever made even though my mileage is up a bit on that, and will tbh only keep going up as its too good not to be used. Also not sure how relevant that becomes with these cars after a while as long as the servicing has been kept on top of..

The long box "issue" is in my a tad view overstated, with it the car operates as a brilliant GT covering miles effortlessly and relatively economically and is still epic fun on track.

Totally agree with that too. For me it makes a launch edition with the long ratio gearbox very sought after

Interesting chat around the black pack on aquamarine with oyster. I think it looks great and was considering updating mine but it seems generally consensus is that original is best.

Added to the earlier chat regarding the blue SR that’s for sale reverting the rear wing to standard, would I be de-valuing or making resale more difficult if I were to add the black pack to my aquamarine? My Evora currently looks completely original - Thoughts appreciated.
