I’m looking at buying an Evora between now and a few months. I have the cash waiting for the right example so I’d be interested to learn more about yours. What colour is yours if you don’t mind me asking?

You’ve already seen it in Bristol ;)

24000 miles with my NA in 4 years and it's probably worth what I paid for it from a main dealer. I've had a lot of bills though, some routine, others not. 

Hopefully the next 4 years are less onerous cash-wise than the last 2 but irrespective, it's a fabulous machine and a credit to Lotus.

I did we buy any car nonsense valuation that seem to have dropped my car by £2k 😳

wouldn’t ever use these clowns last time I did it my car only gone up 800miles so that means 6 months & 800 miles equals £2k drop in value ????

He has nothing to do with the valuations. I hope you realise that 😜

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I put the details into the Emira configurator for a part ex value and lotus offered £26k. Not sure bow accurate that would be but not bad for a part ex value. 

Think the last time I did WBAC it was £22k?

They value our Evoque about 10k less than dealers are selling similar models for and that's before you allow them to tear your car to shreds in person.

Really 😯 Could've fooled me. I thought that was why their values were so low

Just to be that guy, I have used WBAC and I got a decent offer on a car a couple of k off the private price but not bad and they didn't quibble the price when I turned up (because it was in great condition I suspect!).

If you are looking for a hassle free, quick sale on something, they are worth looking at.

On yours, yes, not a bad offer for a part ex. though, you should be able to sell it very quickly at the moment, there isn't much about and 30k is base price these days as others have said.

A friend of mine has sold several cars through WBAC and each time there has been no quibble and any adjustments for things he'd not declared were small and in his view very reasonable.  Experiences differ I guess!

This was sold in 2019 or perhaps 2020 by B&C. I considered it at the time as it was I think the test-bed vehicle for the auto box. I swerved as personally I find the pre-400 auto box unsatisfying. I forget the price but early £30s I think. 

An interesting piece of Lotus history.

They were unsatisfactory out of the box, but all cars had a software update and it improved the gearshifts considerably. I think a bit more than  early £30s tbh, obviously condition and mileage dependent. There was a lovely yellow NA IPS sold for £31k+ not very long ago.

It was early £30s when B&C sold it from memory. I don't know the price now. 

I've driven a later pre-400 IPS. Not for me and even 400 IPS frustrates but I'm a very committed manual gearbox driver.

The Yellow IPS you refer to might be mine?

I advertised on Pistonheads a couple of months back, it was advertised at just under £33k.

I bought it's replacement immediately and quickly decided to take it off the market so that I could keep it until after Lemans Classic which is first weekend of July.

The car will be re-advertised for sale in the coming months.

Anyone who is in the market please feel free to contact me in the meantime, happy to provide details and chat about it but won't sell until first week of July.

Thanks

Gav

Hello Gav,

When you’re ready, please advertise your car (for free) on https://www.lotusforsale.com.

This will then (auto-generate) a new thread in the ‘For Sale’ section, specifically for your car. Any further details about the car will then be in its own thread.
