It’s on the 400 wheels because it’s a 2+2 no?

Yes Lee you are correct. You cannot have the superlight wheels from factory with the +2.

The purple and yellow looks stunning and I see that a deposit has now been taken on it.

Update as promised on blue Komotec Evora 400...

Said it was immobiliser that was the issue which has now been sorted but now say that the ECU upgrade has been nullified so need to take it back to Lotus Silverstone as they did the upgrade!!!? News to me as thought Dave at Hangar111 did it. Now it is "off the market" until sorted. Wonder what the true reason is!!?

As a serial upgrader with aftermarket stuff and a history of adding s/c and smaller pulleys with ecu cracks or replacements I can say that running a modified car is a hobby. If you just want something reliable to drive on the road, stick with OEM.

Nothing against Komotec or any other tuner, but you need to return to the tuning company whenever there is a problem and be prepared to be a bit of a test bed for their products as new things are discovered or developed.

So they probably re-flashed the ECU software by mistake or through ignorance and the custom KT map will have been lost. I do believe that KT supply the map on a "dongle" which if they do, the previous owner should have kept and handed over with the car.

As @Bruss says you need to be prepared - however the issue may be that "independents" really do know nothing about these cars (including even the basic spec. information) and that may be your issue.  I'm sure if it was still at Christopher Neils/Oakmere then it would all be tickety boo as they say.

@Bruss @C8RKH  ..... seems I always do things the hard way. perhaps I should resort to my pushbike ☹️ . Have always liked Lotus and had all the early models from 7 < Esprit. and would like to bring back those driving memories. Time will tell where/what I end up with.

Is there any particular reason why starlight black Evora S cars seem to be significantly cheaper than any other at the moment.  Is this just coincidence?

I spoke to Will about that car and yes sold almost immediately.  He keeps a database of potential buyers so I suspect he had a buyer before he even advertised it...

i like black but never owned one..  every time ive gone to view one, its just too easy to see all the general wear and tear, scratches etc.. plus they never seemed cleaned properly...  

there is at least two previous cars (not lotus mind) that i was set to buy, only they poorly presented which put me off.. 

i think if detailed and presented properly i would have had them..

If that is the Scottish KT430 then that was Saj's car and he spent lavishly on its upkeep.
