  1. I'm not scheduled to be working on Saturday night (things can and do change at short notice, unfortunately) so I'm going to say that I'm a 'definite maybe' for now.
  2. You do realise, Andy, that you would have to bring cars into stock that were painted in colours other than red and maybe even some that had (shock/horror) rear seats?
  3. Failing that, you could always adopt the JC approach to fitting in, .
  4. I'm with you on that, Andy. It's just not worth the effort - most of them will be so under-nourished that there wouldn't be any decent flesh to get your teeth into, just skin and bone.
  5. It's OK Andy. As Jennifer and I had none, if you wish to clear your conscience you can transfer a share of responsibility to us and reduce your apparent contribution to population growth by 50%, .

    Happy 2020!

    Happy New Year everybody.
  7. My Evora seems to have reached that time in its life when it is going to keep throwing up one minor niggle after another. Todays query - before I go ripping apart the centre console, does anybody know if the illumination (or in my case the lack of illumination) of the HVAC control knobs is a user-serviceable item, i.e. it's one or more bulbs, or is this control panel a sealed unit that will need replacing in its entirety? The button switches either side are still lit, and the controls all work - I just can no longer see the position of the settings on the damn things.
  8. Thanks for your suggestions guys. Didn't get a chance to do anything the past couple of days but when I went out to it today, it seems to have cured itself. Happy days, for now.
  9. That's what I thought at first but the car as been lying unentered, with a cover over it, since the start of the month and has several silica-gel bags strategically placed around its interior as a precaution against just such an occurrence. Everything seemed bone-dry when I got in so the apparent misting up inside the screen was a real puzzler. Even more puzzling is that after driving it round for over an hour, the patch has got bigger????
  10. I went out to take the Evora for a run today as she's been sat immobile for the past 3 weeks or so, partly due to the crappy weather and partly down to having wrecked my left ankle after 'finding' a hidden rabbit-hole whilst out running with the dogs. First thing I noticed when I got in was that the screen for the radio/nav has a discoloured area in the middle of it.......... Once the unit has 'fired-up', the patch is still visible but everything seems to work OK. Any ideas on what might have caused it and/or what can be done to rectify it?
  11. The name reflects the route I took after test driving a couple of 4Cs. I've always had at least one Alfa of some description on my driveway for the past 30+ years. Sadly, the 4C was not be one of them - I just couldn't live with the wayward handling and ponderous gearbox, not to mention the irritating engine/exhaust noise. Yes, I know, do some research and throw some cash at these problems and you can make at least some of them go away, but I'm at that time of life where I want something to perform 'straight out of the box' rather than me having to spend time and money finishing off the development work that should have been completed before it left the factory.
  12. Snap, well almost. Has to be done, doesn't it?
  13. I'm running the PSS front / PS4S rear combination and loving it. So much quieter and stickier than the Pirellis. The rears are coming up on 10k miles and still have loads of life left in them - the Pirellis on the other hand, at that mileage, would have had about as much tread as a billiard ball, .
  14. Sorry to hear about the MiL - glad to hear she's on the road to recovery, albeit most likely a long one with some steep hills in it along the way. I'm working nightshift this weekend but if I get finished at a reasonable time Sunday morning then I'll pop along before heading for bed.
