Just bought a 2017 Evora 400.

Hello all, just picked up this puppy. First Lotus, coming from an R8 4.2 6MT. Going to need some help with audio and exhaust upgrades soooooon!

Nice car, congrats!

Never seen a body colored sail/vent panel before. Was it an option on 2017, or mod?

Welcome to the Lotus Community, it's a great place to be!

Very nice !! You left a R8 behind, was my 10 year plan to get a R8 but they are still out of reach, think my Exige will be a happy trade off.

I think all those parts are painted by Auto Europe. Donít know why the factory hasnít made that an option. Looks good.

Beautiful! Looks like the one Auto Europe had for sale recently. If I'm right that it's the same one, I seriously considered kulling the herd in my garage/driveway to free up sufficient funds and space for it.

Welcome and enjoy!

[Edit... Duh. Just saw the Auto Europe license plate frame]

Haha, thanks everyone. Auto Europe was great to deal with, I wish I lived closer. Already have the decat pipe from Gregís installed and put 900 miles on her the first week of ownership! I donít think further exhaust mods will be necessary at this point.

Now off to some audio upgrades, and reading more here to find what other mods might be worthwhile.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Great info here, happy to be a part of it.
