All good so far. 80 miles in.

Yes, the seatbelts are twisted.
 
Stunning! That blue really pops. It must look like a spaceship cruising down those quaint streets.
 
Congrats. Looks awesome, definitely the best colour but im biased 😅. Shocking they still haven’t sorted the seatbelt issue out yet

It’s not an issue at all. Don’t believe the internet.
The belt actually sits more naturally across the shoulder with that twist.
Just looks a bit wrong when you‘re not wearing it.

And you can change the main speedometer to km/h.

Just change the units in the settings. This is so obvious it must be a new firmware thing as I’m sure people said they tried this before.

And the tyre pressures can be in PSI, which suits me better. Hadn’t seen that in any pictures before.
 
My goodness this spec makes my heart race. Keep working hard Lotus, my money is not going anywhere. When I look KJD's car I simply say, a NEW supercar for less than <100K. Period.

Just going to disagree with myself here.
Been for a drive and the belt sits awkwardly on the shoulder.
Must have had the wrong shoulder on yesterday.
I’ll be straightening out the twist tomorrow.

If you're thinking of doing it yourself, I would recommend you not, as Lotus was going to void someone's warranty simply for changing out the shift knob. Let your dealer do it so there won't be any warranty issues.

YMMV
 
The nice people at Lotus even left me a spare screw.

Rolling around in the trinket tray.

At least I hope it’s “spare”.

OMG, I had a 'spare' screw for a new Q7 a few years back, it was embedded in the front right tyre (had dealer fitted mudflaps), resulted in a slow puncture, TPMS warning on the first motorway trip and a new tyre fitted by them a couple of days later... Fingers crossed for you this really is 'spare'!

Little things, I love that you can change the TPMS to PSI, as I prefer working in PSI.
