I have recently made a deposit on a 2010 Lotus Evora with about 10,000 - Sillver/Pimento, it has just about every package, Premium Package , Sport Package , Navigation System , Park Distance Control , , Tech Pkg, RV Camera, Sport Ratio Gear Box, Forged Silver Wheels, Starshield, Stage II Exhaust, I even have the original sticker which was $86,265. Its been a one owner car, from the car fax it appears it has 5 "service records" doesnt say what these are for only "recommended service" or nothing. It appears that all Technical Service bulletins have been addressed (for instance I know that they put in a new Dashboard to address the issue with the leather) - The price $52,500

1. The deposit is already made, and I am getting the car - but I am curious - Good Price?
2. I have diligently read the forums - so I am aware of issues related to early vehicles (manufactured March 2010) - Could this be a "Launch Edition"? It seems most issues weren't addressed till later in 2010, but it seems most things have been addressed.
3. Anyone replace the battery with a LIFEpo4 battery? Like Chimera? Chimera Batteries – Performance Battery Systems
4. The car is silver, with Pimento interior, I was thinking of having the roof wrapped glossy black - anyone have any picture of a silver/pimemto with a black roof?


Thanks,

Good price. If it is current on service bulletins and ECU updates, I wouldnt worry about the born on date.

I say wrap the whole thing in black! Starlight Black FTMFW!

Thanks,
From what you have listed, I would think this is a "Launch Edition". That is not a bad thing. Are you purchasing from a Lotus dealer? If so have them show you an ECU dump, and a service history from the Lotus USA dealer database. If it is not a Lotus dealer, you can give a local dealer (one that you will give your service buisness to) the vin # and ask for the service records without the personal info of the previous owner. And welcome to the Lotus family.

If the engine hours are at 149 and the car has 10,000 miles wouldn't that make the average speed ~67mph. That doesn't seem inline with the rest of the report. ...or is my math just wrong?
