  1. Learnt from Renault 5 GT-Turbo-driving days: Blu-Tack is brilliant at curing squeaks.
  2. Completely agree. Worked very well for Porsche and I hope it works as well for Lotus. We don't have to buy/drive the SUVs, but we can enjoy the sports cars funded by their profits (just like happened with Porsche).
  3. Are you sure, Andy? It says "New dampers, firmer on compression at the rear and firmer on rebound at the front...." Sounds like slightly different dampers, to me.
  4. Somewhere in that thread someone says the 400 brackets are exactly the same. I would do it now, before it all seizes up.
  5. Bumping this thread for newer Evora owners. Having just had my aircon re-gassed, I'm definitely going to try to get some of these!
  6. They do look yummy, don't they? I have a set of Fuchs-type Braids on <a German make, what I is selling> and they are seriously light.
  7. Where does one get hold of these brackets and is there a how-to anywhere on doing this, please? I'd like to get this done before it's irredeemably bad.
  8. I personally thought it was a bit too loud, although that was with a cat-bypass and sports exhaust. However, if you like loud, it sounded good.
  9. Braid will make to order. https://www.braid.es/wheels/products/competition-wheels_p8/special-order_p18.html Look how light these are! https://www.braid.es/wheels/products/competition-wheels_p8/racing-forged-wheels_p24/forged-i_p387.html

    Evora GT430

    Was a good guess, then. BTW, I've seen this work on aeroplanes (big ones....) 😯

    Evora GT430

    That does not sound good. I wonder if a 10-minute battery disconnect might work (bit desperate)?

    Evora GT430

    What do they do if you drive the car?

    HOW rare?!?

    They're so rare that even at the Lotus-club meeting I attended the other day, no-one had ever seen one before! Your numbers also explain why I never found the NA Sports Racer I wanted 🙂
  14. Was a great meeting, thanks - feel thoroughly introduced to the Lotus fraternity, now!
  15. Welcome, David. I think the cost of ownership really isn't that bad. Fuel economy/road tax/servicing all pretty cheap, if you ask me. The big problems (as you well know) are rarity and desirability, both of which lead to strong residuals. This is however a good thing, as it means low depreciation, which means good cost of ownership. Great that you've got a long-term plan and I can highly recommend you stick to it; it will be worth the wait!
