Not mention this lady seemed to think she needed to speak to a man on my behalf?? “Someone more appropriate to talk to”??? Not sure what kind of sales approach this is but I noticed that anytime I call a dealership, they hand me off to a female sales advisor. Very annoying.
Yeah that sexism has been ongoing forever. My SO went to a Ford dealer in Fl years ago and saw the wall of suits inside pushing the FNG out to her. Maybe prejudging on her sandals, tee shirt and overalls along with her being a women. Their smiles soon changed as they walked inside within minutes and she left shortly after purchasing not one but two F250's for her farm. The new guy was beaming and all the other suits had a WTF look on their faces. Just goes to show don't judge a book by it's cover.

I don't think it's "sexism" at play here but just not an appropriately worded standard boiler plate e-mail, as you see I got the same exact e-mail. At the end of the day I didn't go with Lotus of North Jersey even though they are the closest to me dealership as I found non-refundable deposit on a car where pricing hasn't been announced a bit ridiculous.

Thanks for the advice. I'm doing my due diligence and checking all the CA locations. I've already sent and email to Gator and have warned my wife that there is a very real chance of getting this car from Indiana and just paying for transportation and dealing with the out of state transfer.

Thank you
Speak to Tom at Boardwalk. Great guy and straight shooter. He previously told me they were at MSRP, but had a long list/deposits and no idea yet how many Emira’s they’ll get initially. Good luck.

Specifically re: Lyna, she's managing their entire Emira waitlist. I had another salesperson for my Evora GT purchase (in the same timeframe) and he handed me off to her also for my Emira deposit.

Btw their deposit list is upto #82 if anyone’s wondering.
Going there Saturday to drive an evora since I’ve never even been in a newer lotus.

My DMV friend also recommended that I purchase it in CA just to avoid this possible situation and any other issues that might arise. :( When I got the Atom from Sector 111, I think Shinoo did this for me as well. So I didn't have to go through it. That car was registered under SPCNS so that is also the reason. But I totally believe you knowing how strict and annoying CA DMV is...speaking as a former employee.

Thanks for the advise. Working it out with Los Gatos now. But Major props to Allison and the team at Gator. 100% amazing customer service. It almost makes me want to deal with the headache since they are amazing over there...
But if by chance it had issues passing the CA DMV, you would know then and there that you had an issue and it would be resolved under warranty. Better than waiting years down the road to find that you fail.

I put down my deposit $2500 with Lotus in Charlotte at spot # 6 on their list. Selling at MSRP. They are a new dealer so I’m not sure how many they will be allocated and when. Daniel was easy to deal with all over the phone and super prompt with questions and responses.

Daniel McLaughlin
Sales Manager
Lamborghini Charlotte
6500 E Independence Blvd
Charlotte, NC 28212
Office: 980-960-9562

I was told by Lotus in Pittsburgh no promises on MSRP but they felt like they had enough allocations not to do a markup but would not put it in writing. Not in writing I was not comfortable with.

I called Gator and they were extremely kind and honest but at spot 126 I was not sure if would ever get a car. Also was pleased with dealership in Nashville but too far to drive. Time will tell if I chose wisely but Daniel was great to deal with.

In the spring I told Aston Martin Lotus Boston that I wanted the first Emira and they said "you got it". That literally was the entire process.
