  1. Simple one for me today , the Evora flew thought it's MOT, even better it was a free one as when I bought the car I got a "free MOT for life" card.... The way I keep cars will recover at least £500 quid of the buying price ....
  2. Is it possible to swap from the original door locks to the inteva ones that are in current use as the're such a pita to source ?
  3. @Daveb99 brilliant thread and write up , I've been doing similar to my LE but slower and documenting bits in different threads on here and a bigger one over on NORLOG as my "home". Certain things you've done in here though I'm going to add to my list for this winter.
  4. Yes it is but I'm playing with making the splines that hold them in wider to cope with the heat and expansion , it's a balance between them.being big enough to hold in as the ally expands and the centre flexes with heat and them not going in when cold.... Or I'll just glue the buggers in.
  5. Speaking of dynamism here's a couple of action shots taken by MSVtrackdayphotos who did the official ones in the day And yes @Bruss it's spat the wheel centers out again so third attempt to print some that stay ... Always like a challenge.
  6. Yeah should really have shut that for pure photo goodness , funilly it never actually triggered whilst on track.
  7. One from the Lotus on Track day at Donnington on Wednesday. Managed to share garage space with the only other Evora running so made for a good pic.
  8. Listening to some Chris Harris podcast interviews tonight whilst in the garage doing fluids n stuff on the Evora and he mentioned his original internet video channel , Drivers Republic , I think it was Harris , Jethro Bovingdon and Dickie Meaden ... Back in 08/09 anyway after doing some YouTube hunting found these two from the start of the Evora days.. both interesting and I don't think I've seen them before on here , the best is the in car one with Dickie Meaden and Matt Becker talking Evora on Road testing (basically talking heads interview whilst driving round Hethel) and then the test track. And this one a chat with the design team Bit low Res but of their time as they say !
  9. From this https://www.instagram.com/p/CRZ1tEOLmKy/?utm_medium=copy_link On his insta feed I'm guessing it was JB.
  10. One of Dan's on mine to replace the one that was removed earlier in the cars life.. Im happy with it.
  11. @Jobster , perfect I managed to do one pop up unit with a near neighbour off eBay earlier in the year not sure it was the Merc one as I had to print some spacer blocks to get the deck height right but with a swap of the nozzles as you've said works a treat .. have just ordered the febi pump unit from Amazon arrives in the morning so it can go on when I do the yearly fluid change service at the weekend.
  12. I did all of mine over winter, a right faff and mix of different approaches... Bumper off for the grilles in the bumper masking and sheets for the bonnet vents, rears went off for powder coating with the diffuser. etc etc... Took some bloody contortions to get sheets the the back of the bonnet and side vents to keep over spray off the ducts behind !
  13. The more I look at it the more my mind screams its an S3 Evora 2+0 slightly wider , more useable, up to date tech, new corporate face. If it was BMW , Audi or Porsche that's what it would have been... That's not to say it's not a good looking thing and I want one ... Just can't afford one ...yet...
