Newbie Evora owner

Post by Paul n » Mon Mar 22, 2021 1:07 am

Hi all got directed here by the Facebook group so thought I would say hi.

I have bought Ed’s old burnt orange S1 Evora (organically Andrew C’s)

Blown away by the car and looking forward to track days and runs out when Covid allows👍👌

It is my first lotus but I have owned caterham/ Westfield and other fast cars (BMW’s etc) but the ride/ handeling of the Evora is a whole different world. I have added a BOE CAI allready which really adds to the engine response and noise 😀 loving it 👌

Cheers paul

Thanks for the warm welcome

I might pop up to the track day on the 8th to say hi if covid allows and looking forward to future track days and events after that.

Cheers Paul

What’s your ownership experience been like in that time?

It's been good, lots of fun and not too many random issues, feels like it's time for a change but I've no idea what I'd replace it with!

Really pleased to hear that.

Yes they are a tough act to follow. I recommend an Audi TT

Then you’ll realise what you’re missing.
