  1. They're simply an all round better tyre than the PZeros, in the wet or dry. Tyre technology moves on as with anything, the PZero is an old tyre. If the PS4's wear better, that's simply a bonus.
  2. Yep, I use Stratton for the Evora. It's nice to go and see what cars they have while you wait and also grab a coffee. The other option, which I use for my other cars is F1 Autocentre at the bottom of Grape's Hill. Book on line for about £25 and get a really early Saturday morning slot so it doesn't take too much time out of the day.
  3. @DaveC72 don't come bounding in with your size 7's and logical thinking. Pipe down.
  4. I have no idea what all the confusion is but that is a MY13+ Evora S without Premium or Tech Pack that someone has added the black roof, an aftermarket gearknob and Headunit to. It has 19"/20" wheels which it would have either left the factory with or painted later on when the black roof was added.
  5. The correct method is to simply snap it in half with badge facing down and slide each half away from each other. You don't need to use a screw driver just your bare hands. Once you've done it you'll realise how easy it is and what the hell you were doing with a screwdriver and/or any other utensil.
  6. Be aware the Stealth Grey of the Cast Wheel is different to the Anthracite of the Forged Wheel. You may struggle to get a decent match, so it might be wise to do both front and rear at the same time. Also, it might be prudent to verify if the finish is original in the first place.
  7. Couldn't agree more. Can't imagine being on my death bed thinking "I wish I hadn't driven that Evora so much!" They were built to be used, I just reward it with a good detail afterwards.
  8. I suggest that he pays more attention when visiting the factory and/or listens harder then. Evora 410 2+2 with standard "400 option" Forged wheels.
  9. Your dealer is incorrect or you misheard. The cast wheel isn't an option on the 410. The standard wheel for a 410 2+2 is the Forged wheel that was previously an option on the 400. The upgradeable option is then the GT430 Forged wheel (albeit with the 235/285 width tyres). It is the lightweight Forged wheel that is standard on the 410 2+0 which is not certified with the 2+2 variant. This is probably where you or your dealer have got confused.
  10. Sounds like you need a new temperature sensor. I had a similar issue and replaced mine with this.. It's an easy enough job to replace yourself.
  11. @pete757 The Evora sills have PPF as standard from the factory. The other areas shown in the diagram that have PPF, are standard for some hot climate versions (GCC, Federal etc) but only an option for cold climate cars (Europe etc). The sills are always painted; black pack used to be Phantom (gloss) black but are now painted in Senosoft (matt) black which is harder wearing, they are then PPF'd.

    I'll pencil you in for next year's trip then @andyj007 I've already started booking up hotels for a number of trips next year, so I'll drop you some details. It looks like the Evora will be put away for the winter now and once again it's been a relatively cheap running experience this year. Apart from the wheel refurb and Geo (self inflicted) the only unforeseen cost was a failure of the passenger window regulator fortunately a mate was able to throw a new one on in 40 mins in exchange for some beer tokens so can't really complain. I think the only other car that was as inexpensive to run was my Elise

    @andyj007 I forgot to respond to you in regard to the Geo. I managed to fit in a full geometry session before my Spa/Nurburgring trip. I also had to fit in an unplanned wheel refurb as I stupidly went too tight in a fast corner and managed to kerb both front and rear near side wheels. I definitely wanted a geo done after that incident. Here is the read out and I'm very pleased with the subtle improvements.... The Evora had a great work out heading over the roads between Spa and Nurburgring and can highly recommend the Spa Classic 6hrs which I go to most years with mates and the Nurburgring never fails to disappoint... And because the weather has been so good this year we've managed to fit in a lot of Sunday morning runs which has been great. Although I should have spent some time perfecting the Smart Roadster Brabus but instead have just enjoyed driving (and taking photos)....
