Let me guess...at a substantially higher cost?

Curious... Did you pursue this and, if so, through which dealer?

When the offer had just come out, I asked our local dealer about the CofP.

Clueless. :mad: I should ask again...:rolleyes:

Call MAG in Columbus, OH. Very helpful even though I am not local to them.

I got nowhere with the Lotus dealer closest to me - just a very friendly conversation from a gentleman in sales asking if I wanted to come and check out the new Evora. A quick email to Lotus USA just redirected me to them again and left me waiting on another return call that never happened. S'all good...

I decided, based on past experience, to contact Midwestern Auto Group in Dublin, OH. Very professional. Knew what to do right off the rip and now I'm just awaiting the spoils of my $227 + shipping to arrive.

Tell him Steve referred you. I made sure he was cool with me posting his contact info here.

Contact info is:

I recently did the same for an M100, the first answer i received was "a what?", the second was "never heard of it" and the third was "you'll never get that from Lotus on a 30 year old Car". :censored:

So I would assume if you have a C of P from a couple years ago one cannot get all of the newer stuff that now comes with present C of P? It's to bad that we have to work with a dealer in lieu of Andy directly.

Has anyone tried to email Andy Graham directly since this new policy came into effect?👀

I did not. I already know what options came on my car. It doesn't really matter to me which # of that year mine is with those specific options... The boxed trinkets are just that, to me. The VIN gives all the documentation I need. Did Bahar have something to do with this???

I emailed him a couple weeks ago. His solution was for me to approach my country dealer (wearnes in singapore). When I was ignored by them, emailed Andy again and he this time directed me to thelotusforums online eshop for a purchase. Did just that and paid. Now waiting for response on shipping of the CofP.


Just sent a note to Andy about the C of P.
Stay tuned for more info back.
