    Evora LE

    Indeed it was!
  3. Removal of the front bumper for respray was all going swimmingly until the last couple of bolts (naturally). This is a nut and bolt exposed once the headlights have been removed. The nut is encased within the panel and as soon as I turned the bolt it cracked the surround. Anyone had this and found a solution? Loathe to have to do any cutting! Soaking in WD40 at present.
  4. The irony. Just noticed mine gone on the n/s when cleaning the car. I'd be interested in a set if not too pricey!
  5. Bringing this one back up.. Gradual deterioration. Any suggestions on how to a) stop this getting worse and b) restore them?

    Its Winter - who's whimped out and who hasn't?

    Winter coat, wheels and tyres all on. Ready.
  7. Thank you for all of the instructions on here. Jacked her up today and a very gunged up rubber stopper removed followed swiftly by plenty of water. Problem solved, marvellous. Carpets now drying by boiler for (hopefully) the last time. Just need to get the winter wheels and tyres swopped over and we're ready again.
  8. Thanks for this, hence why I couldn't see it as I have some inserts in there. Anyway I removed the panel and had a look in the tunnel but couldn't see any water so thinking I'll just have to try the unblock method anyway.
  9. This is just what I am looking for but, forgive me if I'm being really stupid, I cannot seem to see this tunnel in the right hand upper side of front bay wall that you have mentioned. Any possibility of a pic? I'm sure this must be what is wrong with mine so am keen to fix. Ironic that I also have the gas strut problem also.

    soggy foot well

    I now have this footwell problem on my 2011 NA. It's on both sides and I cannot relate it to any particular weather. It is garaged every day so I'm not sure about general water ingress. I left it out in the rain at the weekend to try but also drove it so it could be the AC also. Silverstone can't book it in for about a month so thought I'd better have a look myself for now. I'd like to try the AC route first - the door seals look OK but who knows. Does anyone know where I would find this potentially blocked pipe which then lets water in? Naturally now that the car came out of warranty this year this is one of three problems I have: the black plastic panel between the roof and the tailgate has got a crack causing it to sag in the middle with a catastrophic (!) effect on the aerodynamics. Also the gas struts seem to have lost their strength to hold the tailgate when lifting. They are OK when 50% open and above, it's just the first 50%.
  11. Please do let us know how this goes as I would love to switch systems. I'm a fan of the Apple interface and would love to get that into the car. Are Silverstone just upgrading the unit or are you doing anything with the speakers also? I'd love to have a look at it when done (I'm not far from you)

    Wheel refurb

    Hi Colin They managed to extract the TPMS without problems. I guess the warning is a worst case scenario. Yours look great.
  13. If radio struggling I often stream via the iPlayer radio app on my phone (for BBC naturally. I'm sure there must be others for the multitude of channels available). Digital radio without the additional cost. This does of course depend on your phone and Bluetooth connection.

    Peoples’ reaction to your Evora

    I took mine to have the wheels refurbished at Platinum Alloys in Swindon last week. When I arrived there were Mercs and Astons on stilts having theirs done. When I picked it up on Friday, the technician said that he had never seen another one, that he absolutely loved it and hoped I didn't mind that he'd taken pictures of it. He added 'it's a car like this that makes my job worthwhile'.

    Wheel refurb

    Here we go, just after a wash to clean off the dust cloud.
