  1. There is an intensity wheel near to the front lights dial but this only adjusts the main dash lighting. The door mounted fuel filler/boot release buttons seem to be on a different circuit though...
  2. WOW they are bright at night (a little bit annoyingly so) and they don’t dim with the instrument dim switch. Just a case of TADTS?
  3. I’ll take one with just the seat fitted, but this is with Isabel in place!
  4. Resurrected topic in case it is of some use to new or prospective new owners. Tried loads of seats, settled on the Joie Elevate as this was the only one that enabled our 2.5 year old sufficient leg space (when either straight or bent)...passenger still seat needs to be all the way forward. Recaro Young hero sport no good as too much of the base overhangs the seat floor. Brittax Evolva SL (soft latch isofix) worked really well but less legroom than the Joie. Cybex impact shield seats fit really well but our little one didn’t like the mechanism (having been used to ha
  5. Audi Merlin Purple (pearlescent)...Hofmann's specified it as an 'exclusive' colour option...hoping it will look super good after being detailed

Completely different experience from some ‘getting to know you’ hours behind the wheel today -Steering is much lighter, probably retains 60-70% of Exige feel (without the same violence over bumps, camber) -Perhaps not as rabid at the lower end but still fast with an ‘F’ once in the higher revs...longer gearing responsible for some of that no doubt -Sounds incredible (really incredible) -Has the same stance of being able to flow down a road -Comfort much much better (they don’t compare to be honest) For me defines what a ‘Sporty GT’ should be like and a very differ
  8. Oh, I didn’t think of it like that... Certainly makes more than a Wispa
  9. Arrived yesterday Needs a good clean and detail - planned for next week and then some proper photos to be taken!
  10. Not an easy answer! Lots but I guess the most top of mind right now: 1. I loved the Exige but always felt it was more of a throwback experience (entry/egress/cabin space) similar to the VX220 I had over 15 years ago (engine and performance obviously hugely different) and I'm getting old and less flexible! 2. Although the Evora is hardly a 'new model' the GT410 Sport gets a lot of things right and feels fresh/different, has what I would call 'close to' Exige performance and (to my eyes) looks like a modern day mini-supercar in comparison (sounds better than the Exige too). 3.
