  1. I take offense at naming a street after a violent criminal that has no link to the locale. If they want to pick a local victim who was not a scourge on society, then no issue.
  2. Try one. I have always hated Autos too. My first Evora was a manual, the second (the one I sold yesterday) is an auto. On the road they really are great.
  3. Well if anyone is looking there is an absolutely first class 1 owner Hethel Edition at Hofmanns who supplied the car and serviced it from new. I've no interest in the vehicle as they bought it outright, but if anyone wants info on it then feel free to PM me.
  4. Well the guys at Hofmann's had a very good SOR offering, but also an extremely fair offer to buy it outright. I decided to take the sticking plaster approach (and rip it off quickly) and just got back from dropping the car off with the cash in the bank. A sad day, but the right decision.
  5. Rather indicates the level of intelligence of their target audience when they feel the need to include an explanation of what infertile means (which presumably means that the author had to look it up).
  6. because otherwise you could not follow it with "very very frightening me galileo..." and that would be a tragedy
  7. No, it's nonsense. We are one country and we should be governed by one government. All that devolution is producing is duplication of cost, confusion, creation of a divisive culture and some really poor decisions being made locally just so that they can "prove" a need for different local actions and thus demonstrate their worth, when in reality they are just being contrary for the sake of it. This is particularly true of Evil Kranky and her predecessor. But this is reacting to a small majority of people within the devolved nations. The question needs to be determined by the country as a whole - not elements of it. What the people of the UK as a whole want is not (I would suggest) devolution.
  8. I think you really ought to be meeting him in Zum Wilden Hirschen
  9. @C8RKH It's already off the list. I'm very much leaning toward replacing the main car with a Giulia at the moment and keeping the JCW as the second. There are benefits in keeping the wife happy.
  10. Does No 28 apply to the reorganisation of the Topic listings on our favourite online Forum?
  11. Not me, but I lived in Stoneleigh until 18 months ago. Not aware of another local.
  12. You’ll probably get more gif the Arona than you paid. Got a mate that was just looking at one. Bugger all at £12k. More like £18k.
  13. @C8RKH Agree on the Seat. Of course the daily is the Leon FR ST and as you say does everything you need very nicely. Agree also on the Giulia Veloce. That is what I was looking at. I think 250-300 bhp is a sweet spot for a road car.
  14. @C8RKH That is probably the biggest regret that both of us would have. I have after all had an Evora for the best part of 10 years and it's time for a change. That said we'd probably have something half presentable and try and join you (in the evenings) anyway, if you'd have us. SWMBO has agreed that if I let the Lotus go and we can agree on something "for the weekend" she will agree to let the Mini go too. Problem is she has (in her usual car choosing style) already discounted an SLC43 and Abarth 124 Spyder because the bonnets are too long (to be fair she may have a point with the Merc) and the only thing she didn't discount is the TT (I know, I know). So I'm thinking that the sensible/practical car may need to be a Giulia. I need 5 seats and if not an estate, a roof rack for the "sensible" car. I've not ruled out an Emira once they come onto the second hand market. I'll probably have that itch again then.
