  1. That’s why this wouldn’t be for me. The standard mirror is already far too big for what you can see out of the rear window. I’ve got a MicroMirror and it’s perfect. Years of driving vans with bulkheads has taught me to use the wing mirrors more. But, whatever floats your boat, etc.
  2. You do know that the ride height on the Ohlins is really easy to adjust via the spring preload collars? Front can be done without even removing the wheel. Pop the wheel off for the rear. Wether you can get it up enough to clear the problem without affecting the handling too much is another matter of course. I made my own tool. An old 6mm drill bit drilled into a bit of old broom handle. Patent pending.
  3. I’ve run the cable from the phone cradle into the glovebox to pick up the usb connector. I can break into it there to do updates, etc on the head unit. Having the phone in the glovebox won’t do much for reception, if that’s important to you, and occasionally it’s helpful to see the phone, even with carPlay.
  4. It’s held in with the radio screws. This is the other side for my Vi Monitor mid-manufacture. Gives you the idea.
  5. Get creative and make a bracket for a Brodit cradle. It’s all very well saying put the phone in the boot but CarPlay and Waze can be useful while you’re on the way to Hethel for that lap record attempt.
  6. In my experience you need to try one on. I’m not particularly tall (6’) but am long in the torso compared to leg. I just fit comfortably normally but with a helmet on I don’t really. Need to push my hips forward with a lumbar cushion and move the seat back a bit. Everyone’s a slightly different shape.
  7. It’s a dumb switch. Leave it disconnected under the seat to deactivate. The ECU doesn’t care.
  8. Handbrake makes no difference as it operates inside the rear hub out of the wet. Biggest problem is after a wash if you don’t drive it when the pads can stick to the disc.
  9. @JAWS , Aren’t those wheels load-rated specifically for the 2+0 cars? Don’t be putting any fat kids in the back or bags of cement in the boot.
  10. Bit of a worry they managed to get three things wrong in one sentence.
  11. Keep it if you’ve got the space. Put it back on when you sell the car and then flog the Larini. That’ll definitely be worth something.
  12. It does say this in the service notes, if you have them. A case of RTFM? Btw, it says to remove the wheel, but no need. Just jack up to take the load off, then reach in, undo one thumbscrew and pivot the little cover around. Saves lots of knuckle flesh and swear box donations!
  13. Excellent. Proper numbers those Matt. Should be a right giggle when you get to give it a squirt.
  14. Yep couple of axle stands with pucks/wood and the handbrake on tight and you’ll be good to go.
  15. Well you’ve put it out there now, so... 2 inch wide bit of wood in the channel in the main beam just in front of the shear panel and jack on that. It’s well balanced front/rear as it’s exactly at the car’s 1/3-2/3 weight distribution point. (CoG). Apparently it’s what the Evora race boys do. But, very definitely, you do so at your own risk!
