  1. Sadly I can't make it this evening. Perhaps next time. Sorry. Sent from my D6503 using Tapatalk
  2. Actually from my reading, there are lots of tuning options for the S but almost none of any magnitude for the NA. I look forward to having this wrong though. Sent from my D6503 using Tapatalk
  3. Just got my evora. Has an ELISE s1 before the exige s2 NA. Where the exige always needed thrashing (and therefore was always close to the legal speed limit) the Evora seems quicker most of the time at more modest speeds. I don't miss the exige (yet). If I could afford an evora S then I'd be looking at an exige v6 first. But that's just my view. Anyway. One week into happy ownership, I think an NA evora has more than enough power for me at the moment for on the road. On track I can't yet say. Sent from my D6503 using Tapatalk
  4. So, the new arrival is safely tucked up in the garage with probably a couple of inches to spare. What was I worried about? Anyway, Christopher Neils replaced all the gear cables whilst preparing it too so it's all good. Happy days :-)

  6. Looks brilliant. I especially like the new shape body mounted rear wing. My 2006 exige wing always seemed too wobbly to really make a difference.
  7. I agree about the forged wheels in grey BTW. I'm not sure if they actually save any weight over the standard ones but I do prefer the look.
  8. So I have to admit that I've just put down my deposit on a 2009 evora at Christopher Neils. Hoping I can get used to a paprika interior.
  9. With a massive thanks to Chris, who popped over this evening, I can say that it fits! I shouldn't be this excited I'm sure but I can see an evora coming to a garage near me very very soon!
  10. Hi Chris, that's a great offer thanks. You have PM with some details.
  11. I spent yesterday across at Christopher Neils in Northwich test driving the 59 plate Evora which they have up for sale. I was mighty impressed. It was much faster than I expected and so composed on the bends. Great brakes too. I really enjoyed it. I could see it being a great all round car to own. But I've a nagging doubt holding me back from buying it. Having measured it, My garage will fit the car in nicely but I'm not sure I'll be able to open the doors and get out. Wall to wall the width of my garage is 2450mm. Can any evora owners out there let me know how much garage width I need? (and yes I know I could push the car in and out but that's not really ideal)
  12. I think she said £35k
  13. Dropped into Silverstone lotus earlier today as I was passing. The red exige cup looked brilliant but sadly it's out of my price range.
  14. Also wondering about a red 1970 elan fhc at Paul matty with roll cage and new spider chasis.
  15. I wondered about the 211 Na at pure lotus. Looks like the original press car and has 17k miles. Probably a hard life.
