  1. Hi guys, I'm planning to replace the two (absent) bulbs in the boot by 42mm festoon LEDs. But the question is should these be CANBUS type or not? For the record: I have an Evora N/A 2010.
  2. Had my Evora (2010 NA) detailed last week. before and after, you can clearly see the difference.. Really pleased with the results. Took them 4 days in total, including glass-coating.
  3. The Eliseshop ones do work but in my 2010 Evora, it is not without faults (as you may have read previous in this thread): 1 sensor sometimes not responding, sensor locations being mixed up (front/back swapped or diagonally swapped). And that is with sensors bought this year. Would I buy them again from Eliseshop, guess not..
  4. My TPMS is acting strange: sometimes it won’t detect 1 sensor, comes back after a few km’s or only after engine restart. it also messes up the position of the wheels, front/back are sometimes swapped or diagonally swapped. as the receiver is located in the back of the car, how does it determine which sensor is located where?
  5. This weekend, I started the car and immediately it showed engine light and traction control off light. ODB scan revealed P2104 and P2119. Cleared the errors and didnt come back (yet). Could this have been caused by too fast switching the engine on, not waiting for the 'init' phase to complete? Normally I wait for the dials to 'sweep' and then I start, this time, I turned the key immediately.
  6. Indeed, this is how I did it, taped it off and carefully painted it.
  7. Once the callipers are painted, do a light sanding of the letters (the top). I used a small art-painters brush and a lot of patience. From very close up the finish is not perfect but good enough..
  8. Got the new Continental ContiSport6 fronts fitted, only did a couple of km, can't really give a good review yet but what surprises me: the 'anti-ackermann' effect on full lock when driving slowly out of my garage is gone! I have absolutely no clue what the previous old tyres (Contisport5) caused the inner tyre to 'knock', perhaps the previous owner of these wheels and tyres had some strange alignment issues? (front tires were close to the wearlimits)
  9. Decided to paint the calipers..
  10. Update: TPMS sensors have been fitted and detected within a couple of km's of driving.
  11. My N/A also doesn’t have the sport button but the dash does show sport when turning the ignition on. Wondering if the loom already has a free connector to connect a sport button to and if the dealer would need to do any fiddling with the ECU. I asked the local dealer (van Der Kooi) here in NL, but they have no clue, was never asked before. Getting access to the loom behind the dash seems quite a bit of work, didn’t try it it. (Or does someone have a guide how to access the buttons without stripping half the interior?)
  12. Speaking about tyres and brands: I bought a set of 19/20 Evora400 wheels, came with Continental SportContact5, with the front ones almost at the limits but the rears are almost new. So far, no complaints at all about these tyres, didn't do a track day yet (and no plans for this year), but overall feel and grip is good. I chose not to mix brands but ordered a set of SportContact6 (235/35/19). I don't think there are many others running Continental?
  13. I bought these TPMS sensors from Elise-shop (https://www.elise-shop.com/tyre-pressure-sensor-tpmselise-exige-evora-exige-v6-p-503370.html), will be fitted next week. Seems programmable ones, I guess Eliseshop programs them first before sending them out. Will let you know if there are any issues..
  14. Just ordered one (only USD15 for posting), curious to see what it does.. Will it show error codes and the meaning of them?
