  1. This lovely chap is a Tory councillor from East Riding in Yorkshire. What an absolute c**t.
  2. I think you missed one of the best bits this week. The stars were fun this week.
  3. Evora S SR 2014. USB connection in the glove box did not work. Fixed under warranty by dealer. That's all the faults.
  4. I thought the subwoofer on my SR wasn't working and notified the dealer prior to the 1000 mile service to look at it. Anyway did a bit of fiddling it works well by fading the speakers to the rear a bit even though there are no rear speakers and that is not what the manual says to do. It seems to be wired up in a way not reflected in official documentation.
  5. Giulia is looking really good and I hope it does well for Alfa as a former Alfa owner. If I was in the market for a 4 door saloon it would be right up there in the running.
  6. Looks a bit like an F-Type with a big front grill.
  7. I have used eTyres several times on non Lotus cars. Not the cheapest but did a good job. Fitted both in works car park and roadside so not much room required.
  8. I was heading into town to get some petrol. There is a couple of miles of dual carriageway with a 50mph limit. Driving along I noticed a group of 4 bikes in the rear view mirror. First one pulled up alongside as we drove along and matched speed. Had a look and gave a thumbs up. Then the second bike did the same. Followed by the last two.
  9. Any car crash at any speed and any angle will result in a least one vehicle leaping 20 feet in the air and probably flipping over. At least 80% will also result in an explosion. Even at 5mph.
  10. I think I had 3 pairs changed in my ownership so not drastic. Can't comment on difficulty as the car was serviced annually by Jaguar and they would pick this up. There was only one time that I heard something and it sounded like a rhythmic scrape that increased in beat frequency with speed. I think Jag charged around £400 per pair inc. fitting and VAT. Been some years since I had the car and all the paperwork went with it. For such a car it wasn't all that onerous given everything else was faultless for so many happy miles.
  11. I drove a 2001 XKR convertible for 7 years and 115,000 miles as a DD. It never missed a beat or broke down. It will not drive like a lotus. Definitely a GT but quite practical when you consider the boot and back seat for hauling loads. All mine needed was regular servicing and usual consumables. Except. Wearing our suspension bushes more often than you might expect. Talking one day to my regular jag servicing manager he said this was Jags choice for a softer ride but personally he would have put sports suspension on.
  12. Popping this in here as well as South West lounge. Currently meeting at Membury services at 8.30am. I was thinking we could swing by Reading services if there are people there that want to join up.
  13. OK for me if we want to get to TLF for 10. That would make it 8.30 at Membury which would fit with your 6am start.
  14. It's about 1hr 10 minutes from Membury to MBW. If we aim to get there for 11am then it would be gathering around 9.30 to leave at 9.50 (allow those travelling longer distances to imbibe and get rid of some coffee). Clearly if people want to get there for 10 then it is one hour earlier.
  15. Any interest in a little convoy to TLF Brooklands this year. Could meet up at Membury services (other locations are available). Reply to this if interested.
  16. 1:Life on the Limit I think I prefer this to Rush. Has decent Lotus content.
  17. Except that Indy car engines are V6.
  18. If you do want to get headlight benders I used these last year. Bit of judgement required while fitting but they do list the Evora and provide a guide. No issues while driving at night and no issues upon removal.
  19. Not quite. The only option that they were allowed to vote on was to keep the new qualifying format for Q1 and Q2. Q3 would revert to the old way. It was Mclaren and Red Bull that did not vote in favour of this new proposal. It needs a unanimous vote to change therefore no change. Apart from that you were spot on. I'm with Mclaren and Red Bull on this. Get rid of the new qualifying system in it's entirety.
  20. I wonder where we will be in a few years given. The snoopers charter being forced through degrading your personal freedom All the recent expenses and banking scandals The cutting of support for the disabled. Of course the above is all the fault of the EU.
