How many people with deposits have actually driven the car?
You bet on it!!rtking said:From how they look in the pics, I'm guessing they're a soft compound and may not last over 10,000 miles in spirited driving...
Ouch ! That will be a definite change from the Miata - I got great life out of my OEM Michelin Pilots - over 30,000 miles !!!LarryB said:My MR2 with Yoko A520 go through a set of rears every ~7500 miles, typically fronts are x2 that. Mid-engine cars love to eat rear tires.
Chris, I thought you and Clyde both worked for Lotus. Guess I was wrong. I know there is a guy named Jeff Chen who posts and thought he worked for Lotus too, but maybe he is a consultant since a post said Lotus USA only has about 10 employees right now.I'm a non-Lotus person who drove one of the test federal cars back in early September. Additionally, Roy Olivier and Andrew Mcbarron have driven the car as well.
The first yes option refers to a non-Fed version with the Rover engine that is going around to dealerships, or a legally imported one that is used for racing that some one might own. I made it US residents only since everyone in Europe has the option of driving one before.You mean the Fed version, right?

I thought 10k was pretty typical, even for a stock suspension? Lowering it doesn't change the tire wear, and with my standard alignment I still average 10k for the rears.LarryB said:The MR2 with OEM tires went around 18K miles (rear). Having lowered it with a more agressive alignment with softer tires will shorted there life.
