  1. Oops my bad, I didn't notice that it was an S. Also Sports Racer ? Agree that's an amazing price, given all that.
  2. Cars like this were £25K a few months ago. I wouldn't say it's suspiciously cheap. You could always get it inspected.
  3. What gets my goat is that all the Porsches I've had (996 C2, 996 Turbo, 944 Turbo and Panamera Turbo) all turned out to be way less reliable and far costlier to run than the Evora has been; all quite significantly so, in fact. Only just dodged a 10K gearbox replacement on the Panamera because the immobiliser cut in, stopping the car before the gearbox oil leaked to zero from a failed oil cooler! Yet the Porsches are the "better made" cars? Hmmm, superficially maybe, but not mechanically.
  4. They always say "interior not as good as a Porsche". Speaks volumes about them and most modern 'drivers'; it's all about the bling/badge, not the drive.
  5. Is this for real? Hendy are about 2 miles away from me! Why would this be at a Honda dealership instead of Snows Toyota?
  6. It wasn't just about price and the car is lovely, but just saying that even good -400s can be had for < 50K
  7. Well I was looking at one just last week that was under £50K privately, excellent spec, but we never reached a deal. Seller wants to buy a 981 GT4 (these are going up in price, apparently) and wanted just a little too much for the Evora in my opinion.
  8. That is so true, Bruss. I solved my car's issues only after going to an air-con specialist garage.
  9. At the same time as they wore out in no time at all, the pirellis also felt like they were made of stone: aquaplaning, understeering, ackerman-juddering and being far more noisy than the Michelins as well. In the cold and the the wet, they were pretty dire.
  10. How did you paint the Lotus script? I found the letters to be very rounded and difficult to paint when I did mine, so I just left them the same colour in the end.
  11. Don't forget the Wolseley fireplace/grille on the front, for extra understeer. My God those cars were beyond crap.
  12. Pheasants take the phrase "bird brained" to an extreme level. You can definitely see the lineage from dinosaurs in that regard.
  13. Me too. They've completely sold out now.
