  1. Still about 2 years' worth even at the new production rate, apparently.
  2. Worked for Mercedes on their W124s as well 🙂
  3. So glad that they put the same on the GT 410.
  4. My experience of Porsches is almost exavtly the same as Jerybondov's above and those before him. The only issues I've had with the Evora have been pretty minor (although parts availability has been a problem for some, not me though), which are more common but smaller and cheaper than the rarer but very-expensive issues I had with Porsches. But overall the Evora feels so engaging, so special - and the community so friendly - that I will never, ever go back to Porsche.
  5. Extremely happy, yes 🙂 This article confirms my choice: buy the last of one of the best driver's cars ever (and be buried in it).
  7. Yes the facebook group are quite active.
  8. Congratulations, Mark! I hope you enjoy her as much as I did; she's a cracker that's been well-loved by many of us on these forums (i.e. enthusiasts). Hope to see you at some of the SW Lotus meets some time soon.
  9. EGTE

    Wanted - Evora S

    Or just get an NA; nothing wrong with them at all!
  10. More next week then, hopefully.
  11. I also got some expensive quotes, all involving huge amounts of man-hours to get the front clam off and on again. It was a little village garage in Devon that did this eventually and it was not difficult to do. They did a full flush and replaced condenser-drier at the same time and the system's been perfect ever since (about 3 years). Good luck.
  12. Plus it will be half the price of the 911 Turbo......
  13. They've just stepped out of a Huracan Evo and they love the steering, handling and pace........says a lot!
  14. You can get to it from underneath the front undertray.
  15. Message sent! Congrats!
  16. You "run around" in a crap-box like a Puke. You drive an Evora.
  17. Would loved to have kept both, but very happy with the GT. Hope the new owner enjoys the NA as much as I did.
  18. Bad luck Kimbers, must be terribly difficult. Hope it all works out for you.
  19. Thanks for that guys, particularly Scotty; my biggest fear is regretting selling the NA, so it's good to hear you never regretted selling yours. Will report back in a few weeks once the 410 is run in.
  20. I liked the "Phil's spec" Evora so much, I've just bought one. Wanted something as soft as the NA but with the performance/interior of the S2s and the GT410 delivers that in spades. Seems much quieter (NVH-wise) too. Will be picking up on Monday (currently being prepped /PPF-ed at Topaz Detailing).
  21. Facing the end of Evora production, I've decided that whilst the Emira will be lovely, the interior electronics is absolutely not my thing. So I've "invested" in trading in my Aquamarine (will miss that colour, not going to lie) NA for one of the last brand-new GT410s. Currently being prepped, PPF-ed and ceramic-coated by Topaz Detailing, will pick up Monday. I love the easier access and the softer suspension, which is really not far off the NAs other-worldly ride. I always thought they'd have to bury me in the blue Evora, but it will be a green one instead! Definitely not the end of the Evora for me.
