Agree, looks like a good price in current market. Nice looking car.

Blimey, £34,499 for a 2010 NA private sale 2+0 that doesn't even have all the packs...

Strong money one might think, until you saw the mileage. 6,633 miles in 11 years!

I also really don't think they suit cream interior either.

Cheapest decent car seen for a while: https://www.lotusforsale.com/ads/lotus-evora-2010/

£24K, reasonable miles and a clutch changed. Looks to have premium and tech packs, likely to therefore have sport too.

Not sure why it needed a picture of a lady in the car though... smile

I believe the yellow car is now sold. It was a total bargain so, not surprised at the speed of sale.

Crap, crap, crap! I would have bought that Yellow Evora in a heartbeat if I had known it was for sale and especially so near in Edinburgh (I'm in Glasgow).

Have a chat with Craig Moncrieff (CMC in Edinburgh) as he sometimes has insider information on any customer cars coming up for sale. Even a wanted ad on Scottish Elise's may generate some interest.

Not much to pick from at the moment across the UK however.

Same across the range. Been idly looking for an Exige and f all for sale and what is for sale shows a big price increase over 6 - 24 months ago. Just been on Collecting Cars website looking at auction sold prices and makes me weep.

There is a more active market watch thread so worth looking there

Either way if you genuinly want one you need to be looking daily and have alerts setup for ebay etc....

Cars that are priced right sell within a day or so currently!

Also contact Jon Seal and Will Blackham directly, they often sell cars without them even being advertised.

Thank you for the advice everyone.

John Seal is within spitting distance of my parents so I will get in touch. I just don't have the time to do a trip to the home counties and back at the moment. Hence the annoyance at missing one in Edinburgh.

Before you all say it, I know, I know, you've got to be prepared to go anywhere to get a decent Evora. Especially in my <£35k budget.

It has been mentioned in this thread before. The owner says he wants to switch to an automatic due to having a bad leg.

That was a long while ago…was just wondering if there is an issue with it given it’s been on sale for so long.
