  1. I've tried a Porsche one and I thought it was massively over-rated.
  2. Well that was quick! Grandado-ordered TPMS arrived this morning. Exactly the same as all the other versions. 9 days to get here from China, cannot argue with that!
  3. I just don't see why people rave about DCTs. They don't sound great to me and I've always found them much jerkier to use than torque converters.
  4. Thanks, Bibs. Yes I meant Block exemption, not right-to-repair.
  5. I wonder if it might be better to take that foam out and secure all the other pipes some other way, too. They'll all be permanently damp as well......
  6. How do Lotus get away with not selling their Techcentre to independents? I thought that right-to-repair laws would have made that unlawful.
  7. It's rarely a good idea to buy end-of-line models generally. Would Lotus really build something anodyne in the near future? I doubt it. I love my Evora but if I was in the market I would wait to see what the new model is like. If it's not your cup of tea, there will be excess Evora stock to buy at possibly good prices, so it's a win-win for you. For example, my neighbour bought one of the very last brand-new BMW 640Ds in the country a couple of years back. List price was £72,000 with all the options. He got it for £36,000 on the road.
  8. They've had 4 enquiries on that Swindon-engine car today 🙂
  9. I don't know for sure, but I only hear my fans when it's hot. Not noticed it kick in when I select AC. I have a spare brand-new trinary switch btw. Think it's £50 from Lotus. Happy to let it go for £25+postage if you like.
  10. But hold on, many of us have perfectly functioning AC, so it's hardly a major design flaw. I'm not even sure it's true that "all" cars have low pressure sensors either.
  11. I did, absolutely. I've seen worse reviews for many UK companies 🙂
  12. Sounds like they didn't flush it/test it properly. Receiver-dryer is like a £20 part. What's the condition of the condenser? Regards the heat, can you hear your fans running? I had some gremlins that started with air-con dying and the fans then stopped running. After installing a new compressor, condenser (original was completely smashed up by gravel) and receiver-dryer, eventually it was disconnecting the battery terminals and grounding them that reset the ECU and all was well. Air-con has been fine for 2 years since. I also installed extra grille mesh on the front to protect the new condenser.
  13. How's about hanging some boat fenders out of your windows and down the side of your car, to force them to leave some space and save your bodywork. 😂
  14. Just ordered 4 sensors for £37 from Insured and tracked delivery for £1.99
  15. Some Seat Leon Cupra's are majorly modified. I recently saw one running something like 500BHP. That's probably why he wanted to race: he was in a sleeper rocket-car and wanted to rain on your parade.
  16. Only a few trolls on that thread; most replies positive. Quite unusual for PH and hopefully indicates the high regard people have belatedly discovered for the Evora.
  17. It's one less thing to go wrong, not having something as pointless as this.
  18. I think they're a bit of a nightmare to be honest, which is why I went for the 'soft option' of a Lotus 😆
  19. Just SW of Exeter, really close. Met @MayEvora at Lotus meet last year. Would be great to catch your GT430! Also saw an Evora S in very similar colours to @MayEvora in Alphington a couple of years ago, plus a black one on Torquay ring-road. There's a few down here, that's for sure.
  20. They're excellent, agreed. Used them a couple of times, but never for tyres. That could well change soon.
