  1. Congrats! Soon after getting my 410 I did a 2k mile trip through france to spain and andorra and was pleasantly surprised by economy. I planned the trip to stop every 100 miles or so to fill-up so that i would rarely be below a 100-mile range such was my concern about running out. By the second half of the trip we relaxed a bit. With a few 10-hour driving days the car was also very comfy. 18mpg on the mountain roads and 30mpg+ on the dual carriageways.
  2. Hiya Mark, Can you please share details? Type. model. price etc. Would be great to be able to stay out after dark ...when we are next allowed out.
  3. I wrote about it here. Hope it helps. Tuning Nitron 3-Ways for personal taste.
  4. Welcome to the 410 club. perfect choice. Congrats.
  5. So many positive reactions, thumbs-up, cameras-out, etc. But perhaps the best for me is to see people turn around to see what is coming up behind them. They can hear the 410 howl, even at low speed and they turn to look. There is no age or sex stereotype: it will be young or old, male or female, it happens almost every time. My daughter loves the "Lotus Face" as she calls it - worn by everyone who turns to look, aghast. I expected this car to be epic to drive. I had no idea it would be epic to own.
  6. Well i test drove a 350 and a 380 and a 410 and i bought a 350. The 380 was noiser in a great way than the 350 but it didnt feel much quicker. Then i drive a 410 again around Hethel track and soon after i bought a 410. It really is a very different car than the 350 in so many ways. For me there is no contest between the 350/380 and the 410. But there is a chunk of money that separates them. Each to their own etc.
  7. Yes you are right but 'crash repairs' is more alarming than his explanation for each which were very minor in truth; one being a bike pedal scratch which required paint. Your point remains good though, the sold price was less than the purchase price with buyers premium added. Although the seller doesnt get the premium so in my opnion when assessing values as a possible seller, the relevant number is the sold price.
  8. Try www.collectingcars.com. I saw a 350 sell on there recently for £32,500
  9. i know this is a chunk of change BUT i think its a cool thing to receive and lovely to get such insight into your car and its uniqueness or otherwise.
  10. Ah I think he's really watchable. He was just getting into his own stride at TG when they dropped him.
  11. Brilliant review by Rory Reid. That Roadster looks epic on the road. If I didnt have an Exige already I'd want one!!
  12. I always hesitate to do this, as i dont want to 'bash' the brilliant 350... but... 18-months agi I bought a brand new 350 and traded it 7 weeks later for a new 410. the two cars are £20k adrift and many, including me when i chose the 350, think the cost increment to get the 410 is not worthwhile. i quickly admitted i was wrong. The 410, IMO is easily so much more in almost every way. Its a very different car to drive and to behold. So, my concluding response to you is this: if you can bag a late-used 410 for £65K+ do it. if you want a raw driver's car then it is the one to go for. -- acc
  13. I know of this car. Really beautiful blue and tan colours. It was owned by a forum member here or on Facebook. Not sure of their name. It is a real beauty. Stratton is also a very good garage to deal with. I bought my 410 from them new and they have since serviced it twice now. Everytime, great service.
