  1. @scotty435 Thanks for sharing your exhaust comparison picture above; would I be correct in saying that the polished pipe at the bottom right of the picture is effectively replaces the third cat? I have a 2010 Evora that still has the third cat and would be interested to know where you sourced de-cat pipe and what the cost was?
  2. Many thanks for the responses, I don’t remember seeing this car before but I’ll go through this thread tonight...... a fair bit of bedtime reading I think!
  3. I thought they looked like the same wheels but painted? - I noticed the exhaust looked crooked, it's the same in the earlier pic as well so I can only assume it's a cosmetic issue or it'd have been sorted over the last 4 years.
  4. Many thanks for the Response Bravo73, what were your impressions of the car when you saw it? I'm delighted to say that you're spot on with the removal of the F1-esq detailing, the car looks much better now...... At least in the pics I've seen:
  5. I've noticed a black Evora S for sale; from the pictures I can see it looks like a nice clean car and has just passed its MOT but the service history is a bit sketchy but mileage of 21500 seems to be in order on the check-mot.service.gov.uk Website. It appears to have had 3 previous owners so was wondering if there was anyone from here who had owned it or known anyone who has owned it previously and could possibly give a little insight into the cars history?
  6. It's definitely the same car that sat for over a year and was the subject of many discussions on here. When it was for sale last, it had covered 3,500 miles so at least it's seen some action over the summer.

  8. I noticed the White 2013 SR today,my thoughts were exactly as mentioned above, it's at least £4K overpriced when you consider the White IPS took several months to sell at MMC which was the same price and if I remember correctly had less than half the miles, also, the car advertised today appears to be out of warranty. Having said all of that, it looks pretty stunning.
  9. Guys, many thanks for all your replies, I really do appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts, I've replied to a few of the comments below: Jay, if I was going for a Boxster or Cayman, it would have to be the 3.4; I absolutely loved my first Boxster S. Colin, No I've not spoken to Brandon in a while though he mailed me a few times when he had SRs in late last year, I should probably touch base with him and perhaps have a chat with Craig Moncriiff as I've been advised that he may be able to help source a car before it hits the market. Yes, would definitely prefer a manual; been driving Autos since I sold my Elise 4 years ago and kinda miss changing gear, sounds a bit daft but I hired a 1.6 diesel Seat Leon in ireland last year and had an absolute blast on the country roads, not for the noise, handling or performanace, just the novelty of selecting a gear myself. I use my other halfs Merc E350 Coupe which has flappy paddles but it's not the same! If i was offered an amazing deal on an Evora IPS I'd have to consider it but Manual would very much be my preference. I would prefer an 'S' but would consider an N/A, it's the yellow that's the problem.... How much is a decent wrap? Colin, it certainly does take my fancy but I just cannot justify the expense and what would be a huge amount of depreciation for what will be a toy that comes out the garage about twice per week. Alan, please hurry up and make up your mind and sell me your Evora...... Do you not fancy the Carbon Grey 400 at MMC? ;-) Thanks again guys, the search goes on!
  10. I visited MMC late last summer and fell for the ex-demo White SR they were selling but procrastinated too long and it was gone, a few months later they had a stunning Carbon Grey SR in stock and a mixture of a low PX offer for my X5 and the fact I wanted the X5 for winter made sure I didn't go for it. Now, 2 months after selling my x5 privately I am still car-less for the first time since I was at school, I walk to work and can use my other halves car any time I like but it's not the same! Since I saw the Carbon Grey at MMC I've been keeping a close eye on the market but not seen anything that fits my criteria, I suppose I've been a bit fussy, looking for a manual SR in White, Pewter or Carbon Grey but not seen any good deals, question is, where are they all? I'd consider other colours now (except yellow) so please let me know if you are selling or trading in if you're looking for a hassle free private sale. The Mrs is getting fed up looking at the top of my head buried on my laptop searching for my new wheels so has made the suggestion that I look at alternatives, namely a 981 Boxster or Cayman or a little left field a F10 BMW M5; all appeal but I really fancied an Evora tbh. If you have any experience of any of the above, I'd be interested to hear what you thought of them, especially compared against an Evora.
  11. Has anyone seen it in the flesh or ran an HPI check on it?
  12. Hiring in Majorca sounds like a great idea, can you please post a link to where you hired it from?
  13. It wouldn't do any harm to check it out if you were local.
