Who received their Lotus Emira Gifts (pic attached) for patiently awaiting delivery of their Emira in the USA after CARB approval? Remember we received an email stating gifts will be sent for our patience (not attached).

Well spoiler alert, here are all the gifts that arrived.

A total of 5, but 2 are postcards/pictures.

What is your favorite piece?

It is a close call for me between the Emira key chain (heavy for its size) vs the history of Lotus book!

I got the email but not package yet , what state did it ship from ?
Of course the wife threw out the box, so I don't know. She just left this out to surprise me, but my first question was what did the box look like and where did it come from :)

She said it was a regular box like an Amazon box...LOL

It is funny how women remember details of dresses, shoes, purses, but when it comes to a mans box of goodies delivered for their long awaited car... details are easily forgotten :).

I live in Dallas, TX and we have a local Lotus dealer in town, but maybe others received their gift and their wife didn't throw out the box and can comment!

Heck I’m in houston, but my post office has been on the news for not delivering mail.

Then again I heard this was fedex or maybe the feces partner stuff with USPS

I got the email (went to spam fwiw), even tho I have a deposit on an i4 FE with a delivery of 'no sooner than 2025'. So now I'm wondering...will the gift box arrive before the i4?

Got mine today. The wife has already claimed the hat. Ok because I have another I like better. The book is the best, covers Lotus' history from the 40s (didn't know they went back that far) all the way up through the Emira, Evija, and Eletre. One gripe I have is that I wish there were some interior/dashboard pics of the various cars featured. There are only exterior pics, but it's a pretty comprehensive collection I think, which is nice. I was going to pay real money for this book, glad now that I held out. The keyring is pretty cool, and heavy, which I think is both good and bad. Feels substantial, but not sure I want that much weight in my pocket along with the fob. Also, the small ring on the car itself is not on a swivel; seems like it's destined to break off one day. Might just wind up as a Christmas tree ornament. The small cardstock Emira artwork is pretty nice, still deciding how best to display this. Overall, short of getting an actual car, this was a decent gesture on Lotus' part I think. Still waiting for them to come out with an Emira coffee cup though.

The keychain was the only item I might use/want. Plan to keep on my 2nd FOB as it doesnt appear durable as stated.
I wouldve preferred a 'fast lane' or fast pass for when the car has to go back for warranty work. :p
If anyone who didnt get the gift (prob minus keychain) wants it let me know I'd probably sell it fairly.
