Might get shot for this but LOVE THE SEATS looks a lovely job - but from the pictures not a fan of the UJs??

I agree with mr f, not that keen on the shoulder pads...

Very nice job indeed. I'd just lose the shoulder pads though :-)).
- Elise S (in Ardent Red). 0 - 60 in 4.2 seconds!!
- Evora Sports Racer (in Nightfall Blue) with Venom Red leather - naughty but nice!!
- VW Polo GTI (in Flash Red) 1.8 turbo - 320 Nm of torques (and now with brilliant Recaro Sportster CS seats - same as the Evora)!!

What was wrong with it previously, just getting a bit tatty?

I remember the early demonstrator cars showing wear, particularly on the outer edge of the driver's seat, within a few weeks of delivery.
Low cost leather does not help (compare to Excels and Esprits of 20 years ago).
Looks like a great improvement on your car. Well done.

seats look lovely, nice job, a definite luxury look
uj's I'm afraid look cheap and a bit Nigel Farage to me...sorry
car is growing on me style wise too, always thought back was a bit wide, but I'm liking it more as time goes on

Scatty on buying and new Lotus:
"Needs to be exige though, that Elise would be like booking a stripper with small tits..."

Its just great to hear that v6 and know the power is there.
This is the bit that is top of my list at the moment. Would be really keen to hear yours at some point. Have you just got a sport backbox fitted, or have you also gone down the decat or induction route?
I'm currently thinking about a radium cai as not sure i can stretch to a full sports exhaust at the moment (mrs L is still recovering from the initial layout, and i haven't yet mentioned the impending £900 on a year 4 service!)
But I duno if you feel the same Chris but when you drive the evora you don't feel the need to blast it around all the time like you would in elise?
I think im still in the initial period that i want to feel that shove in the back every time i drive it. Its certainly a lot quicker than my 120 bhp elise was :-)
