    " specifically the noise at low RPM's once the box was warm. Sounds like someone grinding up metal. " That doesnt sound quite right.. mine whisper quiet ..warm or cold have your fluids ever been changed.? think its the 4 or 5th year service . simple job, makes a big difference to the 1sr and 2nd gear changing.. .. might help with the noise? hanger 111 did mine... i can check what they used if you like? Enjoy your car. they're brilliant..
  4. i have the n/a and lotus sports exhaust.. you will be fine.. not taken my car , but tested it with a meter against my track clio with race exhaust and it was less db.. the clio was fine at bedfird so your evora should be ok
  5. BAZ8864 now drives a merc gla
  6. cant check the mot history via dvla website as must have been on a private plate... nice car , very nice price.. have chat with the owner, check the history receipts, ask for the previous plate and check the MOT history online, you can check any advisories, you will get a feel if its a cherished example. same spec as mine had it three years.. not spent a penny other than yearly servicing and my own mods. good luck!

    "Buy a low emission car then! oh i have one of them too... Rav hybrid. nice £20a year but i put and burn more petrol through that than i do my evora.. yet it only cost me £20 for road tax.. see.. its all BS and not fair.. "I reckon that for about £45 a month, (less that 1/2 tank of fuel), that's actually quite a 'reasonable' cost for all the miles of smiles and enjoyment you get from the Evora" so little jonny with his evora 'S' pays 540 a year road tax. (sone to be £600 form what ive read ) yet i pay 300. both about the same mpg, both doing 3-4k miles a year as a toy how is that fair.. its not.. its still rip off what ever way you look at it.. the problem is theres are too many happy to swallow it... so it continues.. put it on the fuel its all fair.. but that too easy.. we like to over complicate in this country.. anyway back on thread track my evora na is lower tax bracket i thought they were all the same.. clearly not. the n/a evora is good on fuel, last time i bothered to work it out it was about 27pg.. smile per gallon a plenty.. couldnt think of a nicer way to spend fuel tokes using my fuel tax system my 2k miles a year at 5p extra on the gallon (if life were fair) to cover the tax/insurance = £100 where as lenny the lorry driver at 60k miles year 30 times further 30 time more pollution pays £3000. (which i think is what the poor buggers have to pay regardless of miles ) thats fair if gov wants to road tax emission based would you say?
