  1. For an Evora battery I, like others on here, would recommend the Varta siver dynamic E38. Got mine from Tayna batteries.
  2. I reckon a quality new battery will resolve a lot of these niggles. Meanwhile, a handheld litho booster is always a handy thing to have, you don't have to disconnect or remove the battery to get started.
  3. I feel for poor Russell, Mercedes letting the Keystone Cops lose in the pit lane.
  4. Did anyone else see this on Quest last Thursday night? I think it was episode 9, and if so it is repeated tomorrow at 07.00. Paul Cowland and Heather Stanley, who both feature on other motoring programmes, offer a potential buyer a choice of four second hand sports cars. Audi R8,Jag FtypeR(?), BMW i8 and an S1 Evora. Worth a look if you're not doing anything else.
  5. FWIW, the reason I consider the Evora to be an analogue car is that when I get in and drive it to the best my abilities, it is as if all the leather, the seat heaters, air con, plastic trim, crappy ICE etc, all disappear and I am driving a totally focussed, stripped out 60's/70's aluminium and fiberglass racer. Only better. Phenomenal. I have never driven another car that does this. It is all about the driving. I assume that most on here know what I mean. The journey is a pleasure. It seems to be that most car manufacturers today are building cars for people who regard the journey as so
  6. I wonder if, and when, China will offer to pay for, or at least make a contribution to, the cost of the development, manufacture and distribution of the emerging vaccines.
  7. 08.30 on the Trawsfynydd - Bala road, one of my favourite bits of tarmac.
  8. IIRC, when the media were in the Grid Control Centre, or whatever it's called these days, although the screen behind the 'Generators' PR person said 0% coal powered electricity was being produced, it also said 64% was being produced from GAS!
  9. Oops, apologies for being behind the curve (as usual)
  10. Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong section, Mods feel free to move it. Lotus Silverstone are selling the very first Exige, chassis #0001. Anyone fancy owning a piece of Lotus history? I'm sure somebody more technically adept than me will be able to post a link.
  11. For once, @C8RKH, I completely agree with what you are saying!
  12. Ok, so which is the safer option? 1; drive out somewhere remote and have a walk. 2; go for a walk from home and try and dodge everyone else and hold your breath while every cyclist wheezes past. As I said in my previous post, a GOVERNMENT ADVISER said on WATO that it was ok to do option one. If that is not the case, then someone get Boris to tell him to rescind that piece of advice. Unnecessary travel? Taking buses, trains, the tube, going to the seaside, visiting friends or relatives, sightseeing etc., basically anything that involves the potential to spread the virus. As a key worker
  13. As far as I can interpret the vague govt. measures, we should be avoiding social contact. The "STAY IN YOUR HOMES" message is aimed at those who still think it is ok to wander around aimlessly, congregate, or have barbecues in the street. Martial law/total lockdown has not yet been declared. On Tuesday I heard some adviser on WATO say that it was ok to drive out to somewhere in order to take your one piece of daily exercise, so if I go out for a blast and stop and have a walk, then that is ok. With regards accidents/breakdowns, if I stay at home should I not use any gardening machinery or n
