First one is dealer price for a private sale. Not sure where "Hethel Edition" came from as the HE are 400s. It's not a Launch edition either as its on a 60 plate. 

2nd one has had the clutch done and is at a more realistic price for private sale with only 5K more miles.

Neither have Premium Pack, which I'd always prefer, but doesn't bother most.

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

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

I would hold out till you find one with all three packs, the first is a must ( sport pack) that leaves Tech Pack and Premium Pack, both worth holding out for, especially the Premium Pack, which makes the interior a different place to sit in, a big step up in Quality of fabrics with leather covering nearly every surface, you get fabric rear seats in 2 plus2 with none premium pack.

the engine is probably ok, but the aluminum surface is corroded.

not a mechanical issue, but aesthetic. Here, this corrosion does not happens due to the different weather. I remember a recent image of a red Evora S with the volumetric in the same condition.

When aluminium "corrodes" it is actually oxidation. The resultant "oxidised" coating is actually extremely hard, much harder than the aluminium itself, and this then protects the aluminium underneath from further corrosion!  Unlike rust on iron that just continues to deepen and weaken. So not all bad.

Thanks for the advice. 

That's the plan then, hold out for one with all 3 packs :)

So... who's selling? :D

Not me, that's for sure :)

The 'right' cars don't appear often for a very good reason. They are brilliant, and anyone who has one knows it and doesn't part with it. Good luck in your search though :thumbup:

Sadly I don't want to wait a year :P

Getting married in July and have to turn up in something nice! The plan was to keep my Exige S220 but the gearbox went pop so it went back.. gutted!

Not sure if these will help you with your search, these are the options including paint options taken from a 2010 brochure.

I recall some 13 months ago probably on this thread that the lack of sports button wasn’t a major non buyer factor ? 

I recall some comments were that your left foot controlled the experience not a small button?

i have a lotus exhaust and to be fair not a speedy driver so the noise and experience is ok and I don’t really miss a sports button 

just wanted to add this otherwise if you leave your ticks at all three packs then you will need to very patient as could be long wait unless your lucky ?

Cut back on the free bar, honeymoon, drop two bridesmaids and buy a cake from Greggs. That'll add about £5k onto your Evora budget and no one will think any the less of the wedding.

If she complains, well, you need to ask yourself if she is a keeper and if not then call it all off and get yourself a GT410.

Sorted.

Think I need to change career to become a "life coach".

Andy Brilliant advice!!

On a similar note, never ever sell a special car you love for a house or other in this case, marriage, you never be able to afford it again...

Coming from an Elise, when I first drove an Evora I was a bit underwhelmed by the performance...until I pressed the sport button.

For me, the car is almost artificially held back until you press sport - when you do the car goes like it looks.  Just my opinion.

Sport and tech are essentials for me.  I don't have the premium pack, and don't miss it but its not my daily - I would certainly miss heated seats if it was.

Not the best write up..

Tech Pack 

Sports Pack

Does the interior look like premium to you guys? I don't know what I'm looking for between standard and premium :S

Nice looking one though!

Biggest clue is Premium adds full leather door cards and sills (non premium is cloth sills and lower half of doors) and armrest between the front seats.

I would say that has all three packs as all launch edition (LE) cars had all three packs. You can tell it is an LE car by the silver EVORA badge on the leather dash above the passenger footwell.

Yes. 

Also, with an AU reg plate, it is very likely that it was an ex-Lotus car. Probably a management car but there are also some ex-test mules about. Unlikely with that low(ish) mileage though.

Is it wrong to be automatically suspicious of any car that's for sale in Keighly?

I've never heard of the place... I'm a Midlands boy!
