  1. Sven, you must live in a rural area. Here in Hamburg premium cars are regularly vandalised by fire, just 7 last week in one incident where all cars in a carport burned out. Same problem in Berlin and other big cities.

    That is why I would never leave my car outside over night.

    Nope, live in Frankfurt respectively very very close by. Park the car in my garage, but no issue parking the car outside, at the train station, at the airport. You just get you satnav robbed frequently. Premium cars don't get vandalised here, maybe it is because the social structure is different here compared to Berlin (yeah yeah Berlin is sooooo hip ...), maybe it is because a Porsche is as common as the odd Golf... at least it feels like. And there is a reason why I would consider moving South from here, but not North.

  2. In which ghetto do you live or is such behaviour (towards the Nissan which is a nice car) standard in the UK? Have never noticed such weird stuff in Germany, not in the Lotus, not in a Porker, not seen for any Fezza or Lambo. Ok, would not park the car over night in some places, but that's it. Of some idiot would throw stuff against my car and the following discussion would be pretty short...

  3. Hi Brian, all

    Think Newcastle is the way to go. Will bring own clubs, that's the good thing about the Evora, easily carried 2 set of clubs plus other stuff. Not overly keen on movie scenes, Skyfall was just giving me some Inspiration and my wife quite liked the idea (until I told her that we need to take the Evora...) and have to play golf. She is fine with both and also plays golf, it is just the quantum which makes the difference). Prefer links over parkland, parkland I have plenty over here (although I don't say no to a good parkland). Think one week is all I can do, would think of 3-4 golf courses (wifey 2-3, for the others I get up early, don't mind teeing off at 6-7), don't mind moving from hotel to hotel...



  4. Hi Guys!

    Have been in Skyfall yesterday and that inspired me to do a Scotland trip next year with the Evora. Talk me in - or out - for a week trip coming from Mainland Europe. 1 week enough - I will be a bit short of holidays? Where to go, would not mind playing a few nice golf courses. Good hotels and food also appreciated.



  5. The standard Evora Y-spoke tire isn't too expensive. Get Michelin Pilot Alpin 3 in 225 front 255 back (standard size), rather than the smaller and more expensive Yokos. Michelin is anyway the far superior winter tire over Yoko. I had them last season and a lot of snow driving, the hold up very well. Good in wet condition as well and ok-ish on dry roads - they are too narrow and soft to be able to cope with 400NM.
