Just had the call from Lotus.
They sent through a link to a configurator. The ONLY first edition is the V6, as some of you already know.
You configure, save, then pay the £3k.
Feels very strange to by £5k lighter, without even seeing the car in the flesh!
My wife is not happy!

Nice one.

If you don't mind me asking, when did you place your original deposit? Thanks.

Nice work and I assume the deposit is still refundable at this stage!?!

:) I'm going for an 'under the radar' look. Green with lower black pack. Black wheels, yellow calipers, black black interior.
My shouty red Evora is enough to make my wife say she'll never go in it again!

I paid on 8th July so I guess my call is coming? Did you have to configure and pay immediately or can you take some time?
Hope so mate! Look out for a call from 0330 094 8047!!
We have until early November to configure and pay, but I have no control!! Kid - Sweetshop - you make up the rest!

Nice one. Did you get any indication when the car is likely to be ready?

Congrats man! Thankfully my new second Wife is all about the Emira. The last Wife absolutely hated cars. Did I mention that she also drives stick? I definitely won the lottery!!!

Thanks @prestonc Did you get any idea what the process was for those wanting the i4 FE?
Hey. I told them I was actually gunning for the I4 as I'm stretching my finances as it is, but they said the FE was V6 only.
I know this confilcts some of the info out there.
I got the feeling the caller was there to just call deposit holders and get them to take the email with the config link, and that's it. They didn't seem to know the whole lot, if you know what I mean.

Had the call myself this morning. No order for me.

Just don't drive your V6 up the road.

Similar to my spec when I order mine. Good choice.
