  1. They've fixed the article now 😁
  2. Shame they link to an IPS car and say it's an S when it's not (which is particularly irritating for me who is looking to sell his S IPS and this makes them look cheap!)
  3. Really interesting they have chosen to put the price up on either of those but particularly the IPS. It's been for sale for an age! Well over a year I would say... Feels like an interesting phenomenon, all the owners are saying the prices will go up now production is to end, therefore prices go up! But does that mean sales will slow down and eventually prices will have to drop back down accordingly? The white IPS is very clearly over priced and always has been as it hasn't sold....
  4. Literally nothing for sale at the moment so nothing to compare to. Would say £30k all day long, if Silverstone were selling it I would suspect it would be closer to £35k
  5. Thanks @london_v I am thinking the same way as you...
  6. Just seen this. Does it make my car very rare then? Surely worth tonnes more money...?
  7. I have. A set of winters in my garage that are 10 years old. They are cracked and useless. When I bought them 2nd hand I stupidly don't check the age, they degraded very quickly... On my other car my winter tyres were obviously not performing well after 7 years. Probably had done less than 10k miles on them, they looked like new but just weren't up to the job. New set now on and the difference is very obvious.
  8. Thanks everyone for your thoughts. Appreciate your input. The Evora has a stay of execution forced upon it with the lockdown. I fear that I may have made my mind up though. I have had folks contact me about buying the car (who have been very patient with my indecision!) and I am very tempted to take the plunge now and sell up but with being unable to travel and being unable to socialise there is no real way to do a transaction now so it has until mid Feb at least. Changing role at work currently as well which may impact commuting (unlikely) but they may help me form my final decision
  9. I guess to say they were terrible in the cold was an exaggeration. But they go from immense to normal. The delta in performance is much bigger than it is on my family car...
  10. Hello again 😃 My eldest (now 7 but tall like her dad) no longer fits in the back in a car seat. She isn't officially quite tall enough to be in the car without a booster but doesn't fit with it! She now goes without if she rides in the back. The seats are small enough that seat belt positioning on her is fine though. In the front she obviously stays in her seat...
  11. Exactly this. I had a series of # seaters before this and the Evora ticked the box for extra seats...
  12. Why did you sell up?
  13. That went quick! Did it go to a forum member?
  14. Thanks bibs. I actually have a set of winter wheels and tyres in the garage, but the rears are 10 years old and starting to crack on the sidewalls so I haven't bothered putting them on this year... Shame on me 😣
