  1. Passed you on M6 northbound Staffordshire on Wed (not in Lotus). Nice colour…your Exige looked brand new?! Couldn’t make out what model as the spoiler confused me…tho’ I’m not fully up on all the Exige variants!
  2. Channel 4 17.45 Sat 17th July…Lotus-A New Dawn. Presumably the Evija/Emira story. Haven’t seen it advertised before so hopefully not a repeat!
  3. Yes agreed, tho’ it’ll be interesting to see what the ‘step-up’ premium will be for the V6
  4. Drop-dead futuristic looks inside and out! Two observations/queries(don’t recall where I read this?): Weight 1400+kgs-hardly Lotus-like? Why use the 360bhp AMG engine from the Merc A45…surely the A35’s 300bhp unit would have given a better entry-level and price?
  5. Here’s a snapshot for scenery and good, fast, relatively empty roads (but watch out for plod and cameras as NO leniency is shown to sassenachs!):- Leave M74 at Beattock and visit Moffat for refreshments. A701 to Edinburgh. Round bypass and over new Queensferry bridge then M90 to Perth. A85 thro’ Crieff to A82 at Tyndrum, then down thro’ Glencoe to Fort William. A82 to Inverness or the smaller roads on the south of Loch Ness. East to Elgin then south through Speyside on A95 to join A9 at Aviemore. Visit Pitlochry. Visit Stirling. Then if you’re heading back ‘down so
  6. Just finished BBC’s The Pact…not a bad drama…and it was nice to see that the brewery boss drove an Evora! It reminded me of other tv/film favourites…(shows his age here) The Prisoner’s Seven (KAR120C), The Avengers Europa and Elans, the Bond Esprits…but my personal favourites were the black and white Esprits in Basic Instinct! Whats yours?
  7. Also that you haven’t dropped any eg: coins etc under the seat!
  8. Check all undertray bolts!
  9. Sorry…couldn’t quite work out where the vid was filmed from! Have u got a shot from, say, a metre away for reference?
  10. Do you know what…I’ve actually thought that could be a way forward since the new all-electric future was announced. And particularly after noticing that Caterham have new Japanese owners.

    I thought that the Lotus/Alpine link-up is to develop their respective next ranges of all-electric sports cars. I’m sure I read that the rumoured 4-cyl 131 is to use a Merc engine? Anyway…not for me but I’m hoping that it’ll lead to a softening of used-Evora prices (sorry owners!) to encourage me to buy one!

    Hi Clive Have pm’d you to blag a copy as well please. Might give it a try later this year. Cheers...Phil
  13. If in North Shropshire there’s Blink Motorsport in Winsford. I’ve used them together with TG but as you’ve found out, Martin has ‘retired’ from his garage although I did read that he does mobile mechanic work locally. As you travel to Derby, I’m sure others will soon be on to recommend PJS or Unit4.
  14. I hope you’ve translocated all the spiders from their cosy nest, Ray?!!
