I am picking my car up Friday & then driving it 600 miles home.

Is the first service (1000-1500 miles) normally provided free of charge by the dealer?

If I buy my car at one dealer & then take it to a 2nd dealer for the service will I be expected to pay for it?

Can't speak for the Evora, but I bought 2 Elise new and 1 Exige new and none had the first service free as a matter of Lotus policy. I negotiated free first service on two of those cars, but that would only be honored by the dealership with which I negotiated the purchase.

Those were strictly concessions from the dealers who wanted to get the cars off their lots.

There's a coupon in the manual for free 1st service!

Thanks everyone, in summary:

In Europe (inc. UK) - Is included in purchase by Lotus policy

In USA - may be included by selling dealer by negotiation, but not by Lotus policy.

So I will have to pay for it!
