  2. Hi all, I've been catching up on this thread and will continue to follow, I'm currently advertising my TVR Griffith 500 (let me know if you know anyone who might be interested!) once sold I'll be in the market for an approx £30k NA Evora. I ended up using the TVR less than expected as I struggled to justify the fuel economy of the old 5ltr V8 and the handling wasn't quite as precise as I'd like, I previously had a Westfield for 5 years that went around corners on rails unless you pressed the loud pedal so a bit of a contrast. I know a 10 year old Evora won't compete with efficiency focuss

  4. Electric heating 😳 - christ on a bike - that’s the best way of burning cash to run. airsource heating - with wet underfloor is the way imho 👍 - but you will want a mesh strengthened pour.

  5. All insulation does it to stop heat flow if there's a temperature difference between inside the space and outside. If the insides are not heated the temp inside will be the same as the temp outside so no heat flow so no need for insulation. One exception is, as Ian pointed out, the temp underground under the floor slab might be less than the air temp, often in winter. Then insulation under the floor will keep the floor nearer the air temp rather than the colder underground temp. You thought about electric under tile heating? It's a good way to achieve a uniform temp and, if insulation und

  6. Celotex doesn’t collapse in the same way as polystyrene. There are structural loading effects to consider. Then add in stuff like jacking weights etc. Be careful with garage floors folks 👍

  7. I had the same conundrum but just added wih rack on the car using a pump action oil can with the nozzle pushed between the new boot & the track rod before tightening the clip. NB I recall not been able to find a specific quantity of oil, so just added what I felt was a reasonable amount.

  8. I have both an Esprit and Elan, so happy to share my 2 cents. Although I never actually had the poster or even a model, I dreamt of an Esprit for many years before finally getting a Turbo SE. Loved it so much when it was lost in a fire I got a very similar one just 3 weeks later. It's my daily driver, modern enough to just get in and drive, stunning looks even standing still (and the original Giugaro is even prettier!) and always an occasion to drive, even on the daily commute (back when we used to do those that is). Some years later I was offered an Elan +2S JPS and just couldn't re

  9. Hi all. After waiting for nearly a month, I finally collected my Evora Sport 410 from Silverstone. Only had it a couple of days and now the weather has turned to [email protected] Can't wait until the sun comes back

  11. It is, that’s true. Epoxy paint, you could bleed out and it’ll wipe down in a jiffy.

  12. It's very tricky as there is nothing that really compares to the 400 at c50k apart from another one! This could be a decent buy for the hold period you are looking for but they aren't always cheap to maintain as I understand matters. https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/11561350. A first gen exige V6S at c40k or an S2 exige for that matter might be a decent alternative that won't lose a lot more cash and you'd probably get a decent PX from your dealer on the Emira, while not costing the earth to run. But there does generally seem to be a bit of a bubble in anything interesting at

  13. What some drivers think they want can be swayed when they are introduced to a new sensation. Get anyone looking for a "sports car" to test drive a Lotus and what they thought they wanted could now be in question.

  17. Hi Dean I was very interested to read your post as I am the current owner of this car and I would very much like to see the photo you have, if possible. Will post more about the car and other GS Europa's soon. Thanks Martin Ricketts
