    She's here: Military Grey

    As much as I'm not a fan of diamond cut wheels on any car, I think they really suit your colour.
  2. I sorted it by using the furry side of some sticky backed Velcro I had lying around - stuffed it into the gap between the plastic trim above the seatbelt mounts. Worked fine.

    Evora 400 for a small person

    I'm sitting in a Suzuki Vitara at the moment - I can see the bonnet and both corners.

    Would be an auto we'd have. She wants something as easy to drive as her DCT gearbox

    Evora 400 for a small person

    Thanks. She really won't drive a car that she can't at least see some of the bonnet - the M3 isn't great for her as she has to have a cushion. Cushions really spoil the sports car ambience, I feel....

    Does this sound right...?

    Dealer says it could possibly be an idler bearing on the belt - possible? Simple fix?

    Evora 400 for a small person

    Anyone here 5' 2" and drive a 400? We (as in the wife) are thinking of moving to one 'special' car - she has an M3 for daily use and I have the Exige for weekends. Trouble is she's small, and even just sitting in my car she can't see anything over the dash. Do the Evora seats move up and down?

    Dirty pipe

    Bloody Hell, you don't miss much I actually noticed it this morning when I cleaned the pipe up. It seems to be either cross threaded or just stuck - not loose at all, but I'll need to sort it. Bit of a bugger to get to though..

    That's why I love owning a Lotus - one mans noise means the cars about to explode whilst anothers means it's working as it should be

    I only noticed it when I had the engine running and had to get something from the boot. Certainly seems to be the charger. I suppose I can't hear it when on the move - although I still get a grinding transmission noise
  11. Can someone run their ears over this please? Sounds rather too tappety to me. or, is it normal? I don't remember my last V6 sounding like this.

    Dirty pipe

    I tend to run in sport with valve open all the time

    Cleaned these just the other day, but any reason one gets dirtier than the other?

    ECU Software upgrade

    Mine had its first year service two weeks ago and apparently the ECU was already up to date.
