  1. Being a bit flippant, but they can't have been racing much if they were caught by a SUV.
  2. p.s. The mission statement is on a BBC website so it is up to you whether or not you want to believe the veracity of it.
  3. The BBCs historic remit is to inform, educate and entertain which it does. It's current mission statement goes a bit further than that. I could ignore this thread but once I have read something I am a sucker for rising to the bait. Up to a point - there are some threads that I ignore. Generally this forum is a really good read with some interesting people. I hope I have not offended anybody, but if I have I do apologise.
  4. If you have principles you don't have to pay. You can remove TV receivers from your property and not pay the TV licence. You can get your entertainment and current affairs from other forms of broadcasting media. You don't have to consume BBC output. Everybody has the right to form their own opinions and whinge and moan and moan and moan. Personally, I find all the hooters and bells and whistles from the audience at the last night of the proms irritating, so won't miss them. That is, if I am watching it.... I might have switched to another channel.
  5. If the BBC is so abhorrent to you then switch to another channel or switch it off.
  6. I think the Carbuzz images are more attractive than the Autoexpress images. Perhaps it will look better in the flesh. The Carbuzz interior image has no gear stick and no paddles that I can see. Are we sure that it's not electric?
  7. Sounds like fun. Did you have any dashcam footage? Presuming it was in sport mode, did you have traction control turned off?
  8. Treat all sources of data with the suspicion they deserve
  9. I think the Autoexpress images have a feel of the M100 Elan about them. Then they've just added some of the porosity features from the Evija. It looks too busy and retrograde, IMO.
  10. If you are not confident or unsure of what you are doing then it is always best to use your local Lotus specialist. It will protect service history and value of you Lotus.
  11. Hi Gavin I have just recently been getting engine warning light with OBD code P0160 - Bank 2 sensor 2. It has happened after the last two times I have washed the Evora and after it has had time to dry out I have cleared the code and it didn't come back on, so I am guessing it is water in the wiring. Pedal Loud has a Youtube video showing similar For some tips on an alternative method of removing a stubborn sensor see this video The DeRoure link for the sensor is here
  12. You're hoping that Germans are not efficient? (Stereotyping)
  13. @utubecomment21I've very little experience of Porsche, my brother has a Boxster S, but apart from that, nothing. It's not a 400 but I'm very happy with my 2010 Evora thank you, very reliable and cheap to run. Lotus are even trying to make it an easier car to own with regard to service and parts pricing. Have you tried driving an Evora? Give it a go. Still able to get in and out OK, even at my age. I can even get in and out of the Elise, if I owned one I'm sure the drive would make it worth my while. If you were in the market for a supercar you probably wouldn't be looking at an Elise
  14. The space where the engine goes would negate the rear open spaces. So not possible. I'm sure if it were possible then Gordon Murray would have done it.
  15. Can't help thinking, a heritage collection would be nice and help with the brand image, as long as it is not a distraction from the job of producing fantastic sports cars, current and new. It's good to know where you have come from as long as you don't live in the past.
  16. Does it then become a private hire vehicle? and affect it's resale value? Would I buy an Evora that has been used as a taxi? With reasonable mileage and the full story... maybe, but I would probably want to drop the price.
  17. How about a chauffeur service for special events? Keep the Evora, you drive it and make a few bob
  18. Congratulations to Mr A C Bruce, owner of EV20 LTS. Is he on the forum? Did he get his before the Colin Chapman Esprit?
  19. Stanley knife in the pocket, Ouch! Hope you remembered to retract it. Have you ever forgotten? The CoP looks great, a real collectors item. I agree with Graeme about the owners manual folder.
  20. Is that Farage bottom right?
