  1. Glad to be of service! You may struggle to find a photo with the cream but I’m sure there will be someone with it somewhere……it will look great though, with any seats….👍🏻
  2. You have articulated most of my ‘beefs’ about the whole Emira ordering ‘experience’ there. I’m totally with you on all those points. There’s no way I’d take the risk with any of those things. Driving position is so important - as is the colour inside and out. Ride height - when they first showed the grey Evora on track at Hethel at the online launch event, I was immediately disappointed and felt it rides too high. Only when they wheeled out the blue one did I think “wow” - but we all know that isn’t the standard ride height - far from it. As it happens I decided I want t
  3. Sounds good. What kind of awkward questions? 😂
  4. ** SAVE THE DATE - Lotus in the Peak 2022 - 10th Anniversary ** We are excited to announce that next year’s event will take place from 8th - 10th July 2022 and will return to a very special grand venue - none other than the significant historic landscape of Chatsworth. As one of the premier events on the Lotus calendar, the organisers are firmly focussed on making it the biggest and best yet, to mark the 10th Anniversary since the event first took place at Chatsworth in 2012. Please follow us to stay informed and share this post with your fellow Lotus enthusiasts, to help us mak
  5. Nice one Ray, was yours the angel on top of the tree 😂
  6. Fair enough Rich, I can see why you’d want to stick with 99…
  7. Not good. I’ve been running the Evora on E10 for the last 2 tanks, but according to Lotus I’ll need to run the Elise S1 on Super to be on the safe side. Rich, isn’t yours a Toyota engine and would therefore be OK on E10? Luke, I can’t recall whether you have a K series or Toyota engine in yours?
  8. Just watched it too, despite the early start for the Tick run tomorrow AM. What a performance, what a player. Unbelievable. Great for British sport 👍🏻
  9. Hehe, I’m actually rubbish at that - Joanne does them all every year!
  10. So having wrapped the sills I decided to have a go at the front splitter. Boy, that was tricky. A specialist pro place told me a while ago it would need to be done in 2 pieces - top and underneath - and quoted me £250. No thanks……I managed it in one piece, using about £5 worth of top quality wrap! I do now need to empty the swear box though….. After removing the number plate plinth you can wrap each side separately. There’s no need to wrap the bit behind the plinth and it’s much easier handling shorter lengths of this stuff…👍🏻 So far the sills and splitter have cost about
  11. Another week has gone by and the Evora delivered in spades on a 300-mile round trip to Hethel for our MLOC tour of Classic Team Lotus. The afternoon before the trip I decided on the spur of the moment to wrap the sills in gloss black. Don’t ask me why, I just decided to get on with it! Took this at Ketteringham Hall, home to Team Lotus F1 back in the 1970's. I’m loving the black sills look and am planning to do the front splitter - possibly today - but not the roof, I quite like that in silver with the diamond cut wheels.
  12. Thanks for the comments, makes it all the more worthwhile 👍 Had a fabulous drive home on Tuesday evening up the Fosse Way, in the dark, after meeting a mate who is also looking for a tidy Evora NA. It’s fair to say he was mightily impressed with it, as was I on the drive back, it just gets better and better 🙂
  13. Cheers Dean. Sometimes I wish I was a bit less attentive to detail, believe you me!
