  1. Does this only relate to the manual exhaust button, or does it mean that the valves also remain closed when you switch to sport and race if you're below the rev threshold for them automatically opening?

    Seems a shame to lose this functionality as it's the only thing drowning out the noise of the bloody transmission at low revs :lol:

  2. Quote from the article: 'If you could spec a Sport 410 with Ohlins TTX dampers and the titanium exhaust you’d get very close to £100k'

    I noticed the other day that the dampers have now joined the Ti exhaust on the price list for the 410. Specced up with AC but no stereo I got up to £96300.

  3. I bought my 400 new 12 months and 8000 miles ago. We also have a new discovery sport. Both cars have had niggles but the Evora has been the more reliable of the two and the dealers much more efficient in getting things sorted. The problems that I've had have been minor and certainly wouldn't put me off getting another

  4. I'm not sure that the GT430 or GT430 sport really is GT3 price though. Speccing up a GT430 sport to my taste was circa £110k. Having just done the same for a GT3, without going mad on anything cosmetic, I was coming in at £130k. Even a specced up GTS was coming in at £116k.

    Throw into the mix that there's not exactly a lot of other manual sports cars out there at this level, the relative exclusivity of the GT430 and the potential of a 50/50 finance deal (if this is available) and it looks pretty tempting to me. Granted not everyone will see it this way though.

    Put away the cameras chaps, I think I pretty much nailed the Pic of the Month here, will share spoils of victory with Brendan.

    I especially like the way that you captured the little graphic that tells people how to do this. The same one that we all missed up to this point. 

    I'm thinking of tracking down that Italian petrol station attendant and shaking him by the hand.

    I still await the 5 things you dislike about your car, I doubt it will ever happen mind you.

    Sorry, I don't quite understand why you expect another member to jump through hoops for you. 

    Back off topic - my wife also wants a 356 speedster.

  7. It's just common old metallic grey, looks lovely in the flesh though. It's the same colour as the press 410 that Lotus used for promotion if you want to see some more photos taken in different lights and on different cameras. Alternatively I'm more than happy to pm you more photos of my car. 

    If you like the grey, check out the military grey 410 that Howards Lotus have. That looks nice too.
