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

Me too. The reputation of Keighly Trade Centre (and its subsequent spin offs) spread nationally!

I overlooked a couple of decent cars on paper and went to lotus dealership just for some assurance 

I didn’t get a brilliant after sales but it was decent to sort out some warranty work. 

The last thing you want to plough your hard earned cash and dreams is into a car from a dealer who gives scant warranty 

however you don’t know unless you enquire with the seller could be a decent place so if you like the car have a closer look maybe be a little investment of time & money ?

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

Well it's not Middlewich is it!  I'd be running away by now if it was.....

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!

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. 

Stratton cars are AU plated too.

I wouldn't buy it, but yes, on the face of it it's very well priced.

Why wouldn't you buy it?

I'd want that front plate relocated to the proper location, and hope they've not drilled holes in the front clam!

I know nothing about the dealer, but on the face of it, it looks very nice! (apart from the front plate)

Looks like it’s been for sale at Lotus Silverstone sometime in the past with it having there  logo on the rear bumper.

Interesting, didn't know that! Mines an AU.  The log book tells me that the first registered keeper is 'Gorden Murray'.  I wonder if he was involved / working with Lotus at some point...

Just my (possibly wrong!) Scooby sense. It seems a little too cheap compared to others but definitely worth a test drive.

It’s getting to that sort of mileage when it could possibly need a clutch if it’s not already been replaced.

The other car on auto trader is at Targa Florio which is over £32k but it does seem a good example and has all packs plus aftermarket tubular exhaust ? 

Could be over your budget  ?

@Foxy? That’ll be an Evora and 2 or maybe 3 Type 116! (not sure his wife knows though since one is hidden away😂😂)

He’s a greedy [email protected]!
