  4. Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    keep the comments coming folks. interesting thoughts on the R8, every review i have read describe it as a usable supercar with great engine, manual gear change and chassis - which sounds good to me tbh service and maintenance on the aston scare me a little but they are one of the best looking British sports cars ever i think. i should try an evora i guess, as i am hearing the love from fellow forum members, but i cant afford the later models which some suggest. i really enjoy my boxster S - had a great drive to work on sunday morning, roof down and tail out on the damp roads, but dont think a 911 would be 200% better for 200% more money so they are out for now. any other suggestions i am missing -

    With many many thanks to Dave ( 111rDW ) again! I now have this back in the garage Lots to do now fitting and wiring all the lights etc, fitting canopy catches and stays, fitting heater controls to dash and wiring up etc. before going to paint. Want to get as much done before paint so less likely hood of scratching it once done. More pics as I progress. But this feels like a big move forward!

    Welcome! Daily drive an Elise in the winter? Brave TBH it'll be fine, they're just not the nicest in cold, rainy days - that being said, there's something massively enjoyable about getting the roof off of those crisp, cold mornings with the sun out, wrapping up warm and sticking the heater on full. Good for the soul.

    The 400 is not ugly, it’s just a matter of taste. I’ve owned all the Evora’s except the GT430 and I have no complaints. Ponded on the V8 Vantage but just not as enjoyable as the Evora and I would not consider an R8, nice looking car but not British.

    Why is a 400 ugly in comparison to others? I’d quite like a 400 and a 410 has got to be £70k+?
  18. Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    Evora would be favourite. If you can find a lightly used 410 then that would be the one to go for. Failing that, a low mileage Evora SR or Evora S SR (which have gorgeous, high spec. Recaros). Avoid the ugly 400 though.

    I will do and thanks for the warm welcome. Daz

    Welcome, lovely looking car You might want to consider getting a set of winter tyres on it if using it as your daily for the next few months.

    Hi Guys, Picked up my first Lotus on Friday after moving on my 997 C4S. I didn't even test drive or even see the car in person (first time I've done that!) I'm loving the driving experience, the looks and the lack of technical gizmos. Will be my daily driver fro the next few months after which I should be able to get hold of something normal for the work commute. Might have a go a cleaning the garage out today - should be decent weather I've heard. It's a 2017 220 Sport purchased from the Westover Group Dorset. Daz

    Rich, I'd say get out there an drive as many examples as you can. I don't have any experience with either however audi auto/trip tronic boxes are mega money if and when they fault. Marcus Garner has had experience with the vantage and more than likely the r8 as well. I'd say give it a try we are only here once and not for as long as we'd like. Worst case you buy it don't enjoy it you just sell it again!
  28. Musing on a change to suit my age group..

    Definitely have a drive of an evora. I tried everything before I bought mine and driving wise nothing was close. I loved the look and sound of the aston but disappointed with how it drove.
