    Emira weight saving

    REMEMBER... if you decide to do something like this, it's going to put out more heat, so you're going to have to improve the engine cooling. Pay attention to the engine compartment temperatures including the exhaust and catalytic convertor temps. You'll also probably need to replace the...

    The peasants are out of control

    Here we see the height of hypocrisy, as the self-appointed 'elites' fly around in their private jets, and take vacations on their private diesel powered yachts, and have multiple residences in multiple countries; some even have multiple in the same country, and they say we the peasants are the...

    Is This For Real? BMW Charging to use heated seats?

    If this is for real, this is insane! If this is a taste of the electric future, they can keep it.

    Climate Change

    Not necessarily in this case, because the cost of batteries is really going up fast, with no indication that they're going down due to the rapidly rising cost of their materials, in particular lithium which has already seen a price increase of 470% in the last year. There's also the cost of...

    Gran Turismo 7

    Is anybody playing Gran Turismo 7? I've got it on my PS5, and while it looks good, some of the physics are seriously frustrating. I spent most of the day yesterday, getting my International B license. I got all gold on all the tests, but it was a ridiculous pain to do so. The brakes don't...

    Complaints About Lotus

    Instead of having complaints all over the place, I'm starting this thread so they can be focused and all in one place. I'm going to do 2 things; One, I won't post anything in here, so everyone who wants to, can complain to their heart's content. Two, I won't even read this thread. I'll stay...

    With Regards to Politics

    With regards to politics, would an exception be made for context, where government and/or politics might have an effect on Lotus, or the automotive industry in general? Since our electric future is being mandated by governments, which of course is politics, as we move towards that future I...

    Meridian Blue

    Meridian Blue appears to be a VERY dark blue! Almost like the dark blue version of Dark Verdant.

    Front Bumper License Plate Mount Yes or No

    I personally don't want Lotus drilling holes in the front bumper for the front license plate mount. I would rather they just include the bracket and let me decide whether to install it or not. Not all states in the U.S. require a front plate.

    Original Lotus Colors

    Having spent some time creating replicas of the FE colors for the 3D Emira model, I noticed there was a familiarity. It was Magma that did it. I had a 1972 Europa twincam in Regency Red, and Magma Red reminds me a lot of that color. I remember first seeing a Europa in French Blue way back...

    All Paint/Interior Color Combos

    Here's every paint color in each of the 5 color combos. There's only one for Alcantara since I don't have the ability to add color stitching on the model, but you can tell the difference between black leather and Alcantara. These include all the combos, including the ones "NR" (Not...

    Paint colors and other ideas

    The Alternate Configurator thread was getting a bit messy with things other than the FE configurator options, so I'm starting this thread for everything else. This will be for any color, paint or theme idea that's not part of the FE configurator. This is where we can guess at what the other 7...

    Alternate configurator renders of the other 4 FE colors

    After being frustrated with the lack of accuracy and/or realism with the official configurator, I decided to buy a 3D model of the Emira and come up with my own. These are my 4 best guesses for Magma Red, Hethel Yellow, Dark Verdant and Nimbus Grey. Nimbus is the one I've been having the most...
