  1. I found that with enthusiastic driving in the mountains that you can suffer with significant brake fade (I am usually gentle on brakes). If I hadn't sold my car I was going to upgrade the pads and discs
  2. Totally agree. Really enjoyed my S IPS. Much preferred it to my previous manual n/a.
  3. Funny you should say that, I had an Audi A6 Le Mans in Daytona Grey
  4. The F1 box is ok if you treat it like a manual. I have driven a few F cars with it. The best application is in the 575, the worst in the 355. It has to be set up right too The car I am buying was very good, nearly as smooth as the IPS in my Evora. One of the cars I considered was awful, almost undriveable. Going up the box you have to lift the throttle a tiny bit to avoid the jerkiness. It changes very quickly under high revs, but is more docile at lower revs. I believe that reversing uphill is a bad plan.
  5. It’s Nero Daytona (metallic black). F1 box and 40k miles. The key things though are that everything these cars need doing will be done by the dealer before I pick it up. I don’t have many pics
  6. The 360 shape has really grown on me over the last few years. It’s much more coherent than the 430, having classic Ferrari curves, the newer cars are quite angular. The rear with the challenge grill looks especially good and makes the 430 rear look a mess. But this stuff is all subjective.
  7. Ferrari 360 has been purchased delivery in a couple of weeks. some observations from test drives. 360 faster than a 400 especially 50 plus acceleration handling similar steering feel similar brakes similar engine in the 360 is stunning Ferrari interior miles better For a 20 year old car, the 360 is impressive Lest see if I still feel the same after 12 months
  8. My car wanted for nothing. The last service was over £1000 sorting out a few niggles just a week or so before it was sold.
  9. Maybe..... I have a shortlist and Evora 400 is on it, but I have had two consecutive Evoras so maybe something else is needed first
  10. My car sold on Friday to the first person to look at it. I had a couple of people email me. 53k miles sports racer IPS sold close to my asking price. I advertised on pistonheads
  11. In the end , I went for twist. The new owner drove the car away on Friday. I’m missing it already, but now have a shortlist to test drive and negotiate. I dallied with an R8 V10 plus, very fast but can’t get on with the looks and interior from my 2007 A6. So my shortlist is, in no particular order: Evora 410 sport - seats are a question Evora 400 IPS- sensible option Ferrari 360 Modena - heart option. Havd already driven the first two on the list, testing two Ferrari’s next week, but I have driven one before. Arguably more raw than an Evora.
