  1. They are noticeably better. No anti-Ackerman skipping, no aquaplaning and no more replacing the rears every 6000 miles......
  2. Your brief is exactly why I bought mine. 25000 extremely-enjoyable miles later and no major faults, except for a stone-destroyed condenser, which killed the compressor also (happens a lot on other cars, e.g. 911s), plus some weird electrical issues which were solved by resetting the ECU. I've also had brake and throttle-position sensors fail, but they're like £20 each. Not once have I worried about the engine destroying itself (unlike my 996....) or even not starting. It recently took an 85-year-old and three week's worth of baggage home after my Panamera broke down, too. She was amazed
  3. Powerflex ARB bushes last a lot longer.
  4. A lot of Hethels seem to be autos, too.
  5. I agree, winter tyres should be all round, really.
  6. It is strange, yes. Unfortunately you might be leading the way on something new we all need to keep an eye on.
  7. Another thought for the OP: have you actually tried an NA? They are not exactly slow and they do feel lighter and nimbler. I tried both and preferred the NA. Honestly think it would be a wiser choice.
  8. I wouldn't touch a flooded car at all, personally. https://www.thebalancesmb.com/dont-buy-a-flood-damaged-vehicle-462431
  9. That's the second rotted sump we've seen recently, isn't it?
  10. It has for me, although I haven't had the tyres on long enough to test them in deep Winter. Couldn't get those Pirellis off fast enough, to be honest; they still had plenty of tread, but weren't great in the wet/cold/reversing.
  11. I won't touch main dealers of any type, sorry. It's where they make all their profits and they're just minimum-cost, minimum-care, maximum-profit machines.
  12. That F1 car sounds like a little radio-controlled car
  13. Have just ordered and put Duralac on mine, thanks for the tip, Bibs.
  14. Octane magazine described the Evora's steering as "possibly the finest power-assisted steering rack of any car ever." and it's part of why we love the car. The anti-ackerman steering effects disappear if you use Michelin tyres (PS4/4S).
