Excellent, 400 owners are really growing in number in this parish. :thumbsup:

Hoping to join the group soon, so hopefully no one buys my car before I can place a deposit! :lol:

Congratultions @fesuvious, intelligent move. Anyone know the official number of 400's ordered / sold now? I reckon it must be doing well for Lotus.


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

Superb Fesuviuos, well done! Today while cleaning my car I was thinking how rewarding having a clean black 400 would be, but Jesus it'll take some effort, took ages just to get my roof to a mirror finish!

ahh, funnily enough exactly why I have gone black.

I have zero, nada, naff all intention of worrying about how clean she is. on't get me wrong, I'll never abuse her, but time has come to drive a drivers car. Snow, hail, rain, sun, snowdonia to the peaks.

Black is a car you can never ever hope to keep looking clean. Only a fool would try.

So, I wont.


An unfortunate fascination with Lotus, and proper drivers cars.

All caused by S75 LCF back in 2002, a mustard yellow GT3, and someone on here's got her.....

I'm still awaiting a deposit, but I didn't want to waste Jims time by having him travel 3hrs each way in case I then receive deposit.

Hopefully deposit will arrive tonight or tomorrow morning.

Otherwise I'll be telling Jim it's available again.

Still being emailed by the guy in New Zealand as he's keen as well! Clearly I priced it well!

I've now test driven a 400 this afternoon at B&C and it confirmed my "need" for a 400!

So, I wake to an early PM this morning.....

 
Hi Lee. We've spent the day looking at places to live in Bristol with garages, and it looks as if we hadn't fully appreciated the limit it puts on potential houses. I'm having a hard time convincing myself that I can get away with the bright yellow colour on just a driveway, and whilst I'm still trying to convince the other half about the garage places, it doesn't look like I'm going to win. I don't want to keep you waiting whilst we're looking for new places, so regrettably I'd have to recommend you let JimLin know it could be his if he's quicker than us finding somewhere suitable. It really is a great car and I'm incredibly disappointed that I'm going to have to put the purchase on hold. I'll send you the car vehicle check I bought yesterday via the forums, should anyone else viewing the car like to see it. I greatly appreciate your time yesterday, and am very sorry that I've had to let you down.
 
So, whilst I'm sad that Steve has had to withdraw, I'm even sadder that my deposit on the 400 will have to wait!
 
@Jim Lin You have a text message and PM as promised in event of change.
 
Lee

Anthony, where's it advertised, may be an idea to link the add on here, or have I missed the link.

Maybe @C8RKH found he had the breaking strain of a kitkat and bought it? :lol:

Brandon isn't giving anything away about the buyer, he's not as easy to squeeze info out of as Ian! Is it weird that I like those body coloured mirrors so much?

Hope I'm going to be seeing it out and about locally. Man, just sitting around here is dangerous, I'm nearly man mathing myself into believing I could also own an Exige. :ermm:

Mine is now on Autotrader as well as PH.

http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201605234224677
Cheapest 2+2 RHD car for sale on AutoTrader, so that should help hopefully.

Think Jim wants a subtle/neutral colour, which Yellow isn't. So that 400 deposit will have to wait for me. It's not helping seeing that blue one up there! :lol:

That blue looks lovely.

My Evora is going in for service when I get back from holiday and whilst i'm very happy with it, I may just have to test drive the 400 while i'm at B&C. Could turn into an expensive day.

Andrew C was itching at the weekend and he is due a change now, he's had his Exige too long and we need another 400 on show for Glamis weekend. His spot is booked and paid for and we can easily change his entry details.

 

ANDREW. !!!!

Description

2010 Lotus Evora NA (276BHP)
First registered by Lotus Cars themselves in 2010, it was owned and maintained by Lotus as a management car for 2 years, then bought by a private owner in 2012 who traded it against a new Evora S SR at Murray Lotus in late 2014. I purchased the Evora in April 2015.
It has now done 43,500 miles, last serviced by Lotus Silverstone in March 2016. Evora has a full Lotus history, including Lotus directly, Oakmere Lotus and most recently Lotus Silverstone.
MOT until October 2016.

I've turned your pics right way up. Record for selling a car on there is 14 minutes, for free it can't do any harm.

I accepted an offer on my Elise yesterday thanks to a Lotusforsale advert.

So that's another step closer to me getting in an Evora in the future!

Cocopop's car is a great example, but I came to the realisation that yellow was not for me. I completely recommend anyone who is after a NA Evora to view Cocopop's car.
