  1. So I was up about 6 oโ€™clock this morning gorgeous clear sky and the bin was half full, so I emptied it a bit and ended up some where familiar .

  4. Thanks guys. So nice to hear such lovely heartfelt comments. Part of the reason for the heart strings twanging at this decision is how great the community is, and I include everyone in here I have/havenโ€™t met. Truly hope to be back in a Lotus but our young family need a dad with a 4 seat car. Best Matt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Well after my run with Mr Nash, I was looking at Maclarens........a lot. Even measuring the garage. But I decided that not being part of the Lotus community was too high a price to pay.

  8. Very nice! Silver works well on the Cup. Hope he enjoys it - I do wish my Dad had the Lotus bug! I am not sure on these generic backgrounds Lotus Dealers are using - theyโ€™ look terrible imho!!

  11. Be VERY careful with online tyre places and cheap prices. Our little cars are specified with W rated tyres. Lots of the online places sell the cheaper V rated ones

  16. Wait until you've had jlr paint, makes lotus look really hard. Personally I didnโ€™t find black too bad to maintain, 2 buckets ,grit guard, lambs wool mitt and correct washing technique with a good shampoo with plenty of lubricity. Itโ€™s the basics you need to get right, the rest is if and when.

  19. Had my Elise for a little over a month and making progress with the refurbishment project. The car is a 135R with relatively low mileage and has stood for around 6 years with little to no movement. As it arrived First job was to fit a new cam belt, water pump etc as there was no record of it ever being changed. All changed okay, car started and ran up to temperature Next job was to strip out the interior, remove front clam and make a start on the suspension that looks a little like its been stored on the Mary Rose All now stripped off and I hav

  24. Congrats to Andy. Glad he's back and definitley in style! I'm still looking (and saving) as I did see that one, but a little out of my reach. I hope to be back (in a Lotus) soon! Mark

  25. Geely has done what needed doing for years but I think we'll have to either move with the times and embrace all the tech that has become a necessity for the majority or stick with what we have and take our current cars with us to the grave. Lotus - For the drivers....that do anything other than drive.

  27. While i'm a fan of tech in general, i can't help feeling a little uneasy about it. If this is to replace the elise/exige then it's going to be odd to be in a cabin that's not bare-bones, we've been so used to the current design for quite literally decades now. One of the things that's kind of "special" about getting into one at the moment is the sparse interior, you get that feeling that you're sitting in a machine that's been designed to do a specific thing very well, to be focused on one thing only. The lack of sound isolation and damping really adds to that experience, too, in my opinion

  28. Totally agree Scotty, looks fantastic and letโ€™s hope this secures the future for Lotus and takes them upmarket too - itโ€™s the only way they will achieve volume sales and attract Porsche customers and the like after all. Itโ€™s just the thought of some owners drifting across motorway lanes while mucking about with all the buttons etc that makes me a little sad.....

  41. Focals seem to be the ones mentioned a lot.. But I have heard some say they are not worth the trouble of changing them. I got as far as almost ordering some myself. I enjoy a nice stereo as must as any fella, but I can't say I use the lotus one at all. If I am doing longer, duller journeys in a Lotus, I tend to stick a pair of quality earbuds in which have the dual function of quietening the journey and producing better sound.

  42. They did different things at the rear depending on the year. I think most of their production the rear has been body coloured and the black only can in over the last few years. If I am wrong, Iโ€™ll likely be corrected soon enough.

  45. It's a "photoshopped" picture. The Battcon lorry is driving the wrong way down a one way road, which is possible but the angles look all wrong. He would have had to have driven through the trees to get to that angle. The undercover Emira has all the correct shapes to look like a mini Evija but the scaling just seems wrong, I suspect it is a stock picture of an Evija under wraps that they scaled down. It is also parked on an area that might be green (grass / plants). The paved area with the three white paving slabs has been pasted over inaccurately along the edges. The block paving looks a

  48. welcome aboard you know, every time i see a newcomer i get a little stab of envy for that sensation of driving your first ever lotus. that feeling of being so absurdly low to the ground compared to whatever it was you used to have, and the rawness of everything about it. i remember it being a very special and overwhelming feeling, and while i've still got a thrill from collecting each of my subsequent ones it was never quite like the first time
