Just had a call from Lotus, looks like the factory pick up is an option, offered three options, pick up from dealer, home del, and factory pick up.

Factory pick up will be £195 (good for two) Lunch , factory tour and hand over of car. Cant wait to get over to Hethel in June to collect my car.

Great news , still all on track for June , absolutely so exited about the Emira !

Bit of a con seeing as it's coming from the factory and no where else, should be cheaper

I like the idea of it though for sure

Think of it as £1,195 for the factory pick up which I think sounds about right.

No mention though of a few track blasts round Hethel in the price or an option to purchase.

Yes , its extra , I would have paid a lot more !
That doesn't sound right? Car delivery is expensive for the manufacturer to provide, so Factory Collection should be the low cost option surely?!

The £195 should be to cover the cost of the lunch and tour, there are no other costs so what is the other £1000 for!?

The 1000 is a bung to keep the dealers happy

Exactly,the 1045 is an absolute con,they've got us by the nuts and they know it.

I still feel really sour about this,although as I said previously,the way fuel prices are now,the full tank looks like a bargain

For £1k delivery and registration - Lotus can deliver all the way up here in the north of Scotland! For that distance, it’s an absolutely bargain at todays fuel prices!! 😂

Most expensive part of the list - Full tank of fuel….. Lotus might soon regret that decision if they do the same!

Early last year , didn’t know much about car at all , just that there was a new model , deposit paid direct to Jct , then had to get refund and send deposit directly to Lotus . Managed to get a ticket for Goodwood FOS and see the car , was allowed to sit in it with proof of deposit.

With factory pick up did they mention PPE. Would want this installed prior to pick up.
I forgot to ask , probably as I was so excited about a boyhood dream coming true!

I’ve was allocated August delivery yesterday and asked about PPF and told that only local dealers can sort that for us no factory option unfortunately.
