Got it home but hard to drive it back in the dark and heavy rain    just have to wait for the rain to stop so I can find out what’s it like to drive 

So I only went and did it, I've put a deposit down on an 09 N/A Evora LE , it's already on the list being formed on the LE thread. Ive either slightly over paid or got less than I'd of liked for the E

Anyone else noticed that the prices dealers are asking for GT410s seem to have taken a bit of a tumble recently? Several delivery mileage cars being advertised for £80k and a few very low mileage 2019 ones for the low £70s. I wonder if this is stock being cleared to make way for a new or refreshed model, or perhaps it is just the time of the year. A new GT410 at near £100k list looked very pricey; a nearly new one at nearer 70 is much more attractive 🙂 .

I think £100k was JMG’s aspiration & reality is now kicking in.

However @ £75k I reckon they are a very good buy

I agree.

A little bit of me does wonder if some stock clearance is indeed going on - clear the stock, boost sales numbers under Geely and then pow new model....

Who knows but at £70-80k loaded they are a great buy.

Exige next to be shifted?

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

The silver 400 at B&C does seem to have been on the market forever - surely a good deal to be done there for someone. Silver is not in these days and the red interior is perhaps a bit marmite which may explain it. Personally I like it - used to have an Exige in that combo.

discovered right now that this actual car was here in Italy for the design/production of the GT3 parts. it was with a blown engine, that's why it has been equipped with a new one

Looks a bit rough around the edges, front end is peppered (if you google the plate it looks like its done some european road tripping), airbag cover is lifted. That being said, MOT is nice and clean, so if the SH adds up, could be a good buy! I reckon you could grab that for £20k.

No centre armrest or extra leather on the 'transmission tunnel' and sill area so definitely no premium pack.

Drilled brakes and black callipers so it could have the sports pack, it's difficult to see if the button has the 'sport' text on it.

@jps-1985  Love your keyboard 😂  nearly as good as mine.

Sorry not been to an auction in years but thought would be a good option. Maybe worth a look if nearby and time on your hands just for the experience.

I've bought 3 cars from BCA auctions over the last 20 years and it is hit and miss as to whether you get a bargain if you don't know what you are looking at, you need to do your research. The three cars were bargains. Vauxhall Carlton in 1990 £2500. Ford Focus in 2006 £4600. Volvo V70 in 2014 £5800 (not my current V70).

Hi All,

Looking at used Evora 400's in the new year (present to myself). It would be great to get any views from the experts on this forum. These three seem to be the best bets so far.

1. Hendy - https://www.hendy.co.uk/lotus/used-cars/lotus-evora-evora-400-aetv37745108/

2. Bell & Colvill - https://www.bellandcolvill.co.uk/approved-used/lotus-evora-400_yo65-chd

3. Williams in Bristol - https://www.williamsautomobiles.com/current-stock/9976810-lotus-evora-400-2-2/

They are all around the same age (Sep 2015 to march 2016), mileage (13,000 to 16,000) and specification (leather, black pack, etc). Looks like they have the forged wheels. So the spec is near identical other than external and internal colors (and yes, red interior is a personal taste). 

Clearly they have been sitting on the forecourt a while. The Bell and Colvill & Williams ones have no increase in mileage since MOT's 10+ months ago). The Hendy one has 1500 miles in a year! 

So would love to hear your views on these three. Feel free to private message me if there is anything helpful you would prefer not to post on a public forum

Cheers

Simon

Personally, I would stick to a main Lotus franchise if buying from a retailer. I have not dealt with Hendy Lotus but the Hendy family have been around for years (1970s with Ford) and I assume are a good outfit.

Bell and Colvill should need no introduction. Oldest surviving Lotus franchise and they care. Free MOT for life on a car you buy from them. You will most likely get a comprehensive one year warranty but check this when you enquire. I got a full 1 year on my 2010 Evora in 2018, which had done 49,000 miles.

Unless the deal is irresistible elsewhere, I would stick with B&C if they have a car you like. They are expanding their service centre (new premises in Guildford) and now also service McLaren (official).

Good luck

Justin

Thanks Justin,

Good to hear about Bell and Colvill being well regarded. How were they on negotiations?  I did see their name mentioned a fair amount - always in a positive way. Also, they are the closest to me of the three.

I guess I'll have to go and have a look, see if the red interior works for me - before anything else. 

Simon
