  1. It was a good catch up and great to meet Chris as well šŸ™‚ I am just sorry I was the only one not arriving in a Lotus that evening šŸ˜¬ - next time! It's nearly November, the mince pies are in the supermarkets and I've started my Christmas shopping so I vote yes!
  2. Happy to do next Tuesday instead šŸ˜ƒ same place?
  3. I never tracked my S IPS while I had it, however I found the gearbox to be absolutely fine for me when driving very spiritedly. Its about learning the box, and gelling with its timing. The slow response times often talked about I found were applicable to normal / full auto mode rather than sport mode. Under braking, downshifts were almost immediate - notably faster than because it knows you're about to request change. In Sport mode the changes are nice and quick - but there is a timing element to get used to, and once you do it just becomes second nature. On full revs, you request the gear on or just after the first red light (the second if you really want to rev it out!) What it won't do, as you'd expect, is to change down when it can't - i.e. REVs are to high for the change. and also, you can't make multiple requests at once (i.e. two pulls on the paddle for two gears), you have to go through the gears.
  4. Yes. That's the look I aspire to as well.
  5. Is the yellow metallic at all? If I were lucky enough to be in the market for one of these, it'd probably be the Yellow, black pack, red calipers and red leather interior or the nimbus grey with black pack, red interior and calipers again. The Red leather looks similar to my IS which is 'Dark Rose'
  6. Exciting times @KennyN...well brief excitement before settling down for a long winter!
  7. Welcome to the forum - the V6's sound epic! Need some pictures!
  8. I've had carpet for the Elise on back order since February, new site or not, availability isn't always great šŸ˜ž
  9. That was in my diary but unfortunately Iā€™m self isolating ready for next week; hope you have a good time šŸ˜ƒ
  10. I can't meet next week as I'm in hospital for an Op but otherwise I'm also good for the 12th or 19th October.
  11. Exactly - the best interviewers get stuck right in there. Perhaps Nico Rosberg should have done that one; I've noted a few times he's not afraid to be direct and the point!!
  12. Hopefully that's just the lamda sensor failing!
  13. Great to see Albon being signed up to Williams for next year šŸ™‚ Yes, in his first stint in F1, Ocon didn't win many fans, including me, but I have to say I've been impressed with his return. He's calmer, more mature and has a focus and determination to improve his speed / performance. Still think Alonso has the edge though, his race craft and ability to get everything out of the car is second to none I would say. With the expected closer racing of cars next year, I think he'll be one of the drivers that excels, as would Riccardo I think; if he can learn how to drive that McLaren in time!
  14. I'd go the opposite direction on these choices, since the Emira would be the fast / really fun / sports car, I'd be looking at something with a different brief altogether. The german marques don't hold any interest for me whatsoever, so I'd probably be looking at a Lexus RX450h or perhaps a Jaguar i-Pace - seen a few around and they look quite smart, though I know very little about them!
