Wow that’s low mileage, steep money especially when it’s missing the sports pack. But a stunning car nevertheless, sports exhaust a plus. Could well sell with the lack of availability at the moment.

Why no matching oyster leather band going around the rear seats? I thought that a feature on all Evora of the period. Perhaps rear seats are not leather, so does not feature?

A shame the original gearknob has gone. Red engine cover incorrect? 

Personally, I would prefer to see silver wheels and body coloured roof/mirrors, not sure if black wheels a factory option in 09, black roof certainly was not.

Apart from that....lovely...though sad it has seen so little use. If all genuine, worth the asking price though why has it been 'got at', looks-wise.

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

I believe that would have been with the "Premium Pack" - leather rear seats, leather armrest etc.  Cloth rear seats where standard.

Until they want to sell their own car when they will expect that price as a px from a dealer!

The only definition of too dear is a price that the car doesn't sell at!

I cannot see the arm rest in this car. The rear seat does not match the front seats. I suspect that this is a non premium pack car that someone has bought the dash panel, door panels and front seats in oyster and swapped them out. All the oyster is from a premium pack car, but it is missing the arm rest, rear seat and the rear side panels, presumably it will not have the lighting pack either.

It's a base car that has been chopped and changed, a "bitsa".

... Also no tech pack - no reverse camera, or sports pack - no cross drilled disks ?

The closest then to Colin's philosophy so the best one!

I’d have thought a sports pack is a must on a Lotus, even to Sir Colin... the doughy throttle in normal mode (and lower redline) is very frustrating in a sports car!

I have only tech pack but car had a different exhaust and then I recently added new cross drilled brakes all round , would like to add CAI at some point ? 

I am happy with my Evora ! And that what matters in the end 

Nice my NA was a base car (even no back seats) with the sports pack only so even came with the single din hifi.  The installation of a double din sat nav unit with DAB and a reversing camera (that never gave me an issue or let me down unlike it seems loads of standard ones on here) was under £500 and I got the cruise added as a freebie by the dealer when I bought it - would have been £250.  To be honest, at that point there was nothing from any of the other packs that I missed. Craved for. Felt ashamed for not having.  My car was the muts!

I did upgrade the interior to venom red (Lotus sold off a number of the brand new still on the original pallet OEM recaro's in the Sports Premium trim and colours - the seats cost me £1200 which was less than the price of one new standard Recaro CS!  I sold my dull boring black/charcoal second hand ones to a guy who wanted them for his Fiesta ST for £1200!  hahaha - what a deal eh?)

Nothing wrong with your car @Cdm2018, it looks the mutts, and as you say if you are happy then that is all that matters bud.
