  1. That Octane piece was fantastic. Show it to everyone. Which month did the EVO article come out please? I missed it.
  2. Hardly a catastrophic list.
  3. Great assessment and a lovely-looking car.
  4. Pirellis seem really prone to this, especially in the winter. Wish my fronts were wear our quicker, so I can change them to Michelins ๐Ÿ˜€
  5. Just a wild guess, but I believe faulty batteries can do things like this. Try a different one?
  6. I wonder if clearing out the ventilation holes on the disks might improve this?
  7. Never known a warranty to cover wear and tear. Would still much, much prefer a manual, too.
  8. Obviously get the alignment checked if the car pulls hard left or right, too.
  9. I love my PS4 rears (quieter, slightly softer, no problems in the wet) and they seem to be lasting longer.
  10. Sounds like throttle sensor is on the way out, maybe.
  11. V12 Vantage interior would do fine (except for the naff "power, beauty, soul" bit). Also 997-era 911 would be perfectly acceptable, although I'm only saying that to wind up C8RKH ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. Don't get me wrong; I really like the interior of my NA and later models such as 410 and 430 are way better still. However, the head-unit is quite poor, the airbags bulge out of the fascia and there are some very basic bits down near the floor. It doesn't put me off (at all!), but the press often mention the exposed screws and little things like that, which mass-produced cars just don't have. Then they recommend a Porsche, of course....... I hope Geely bring the investment that allows Lotus interiors to get to the standard whereby non Lotus-enthusiastic drivers will consider them more mainstream, which would then bring more buyers and allow economies of scale to begin to play on the build-costs, too (good point on that, Jonny).
  13. What the Evora needs most is a better interior. If it had even the same quality cabin as a 3-series BMW (not even a new one; maybe E90-era) Lotus would sell so many more, I reckon.
  14. Good comparison video of Michelin Cup, PS4 and PS4S here:
  15. Interesting article here. Anyone looked at Hankooks for the Evora? http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Article/Hankook-are-a-Premium-Tyre-Manufacturer---Heres-why.htm
  16. Very nice. Do you intend to bring her along to any Lotus meets in the SW?
