  1. Hi all, I realise this is a total n00b question, but what are the panels of the Evora actually made from? I see them variously described as "composite" and "fibreglass"... so I'm guessing fibreglass? The reason I ask is there is a small scratch on the fender, and I'm unsure whether it needs anti-rust... I guess not?
  2. Thanks all, that does sound like the culprit. I think it was mentioned on the prepurchase inspection report as having a bit of play
  3. Maybe they like the feeling of “driving with oven mitts on”...
  4. I notice the suspension in my S1 Evora is quite noisy when it’s doing something, like on road joins. More noticeable from the rear. Normal?
  5. I’ve been wondering if anyone has changed their head unit to the flip out kind and freed up a dash cubby this way?
  6. I had the same problem when I got my car. I can’t remember either, but some combo of the button with all the little lines and the arrow... buried somewhere in there is an option to cancel the route
  7. Never mind about finding the code, managed to get it... but any tips on where to buy paint in Oz are appreciated!
  8. Hi all - thread dig. Where can I find the paint code? I know this is probably a n00b question, but there are a lot of codes on that chassis label under the rear seat... which one am I looking for? My owner's handbook has the car listed as carbon grey, in case anyone knows that off the top of their head. Also, anyone know where to order touch up paint (spray can type) in Australia?
  9. I assume you realise I am not the person in the YT? Wasn't my car, and I don't have an S... Curious about this!!
  10. Here, some links: https://www.2bular.co.uk/engine-protection-kit https://www.2bular.co.uk/evora/power-kit Cat issue starts around 8.35
  11. Sorry, I should clarify, I think the "return to engine" bit might be more theory than practice, but the "cat disintegrating" bit seems to have been talked about on the LotusTalk forum. It's also mentioned by 2bular and Monkey Wrench on their websites (though potentially just marketing spin). There was a youtuber who showed the outcome of the destroyed cats, apparently due to proximity to hot engine whereas on Toyota applications there is more room for the piping? Anyway, I suppose my question really is how likely an NA or S cat is to fail, since the de-cat full system fix is quite ex
  12. Hi all, Just reading up on some cat failure issues on the S model (ingesting ceramic particles from the integral catalysers in the factory headers). Has anyone had this happen on an NA engine?
  13. I'm ecstatic to announce the new arrival - a 2010 NA Evora 2+2 in (carbon?) grey! There has been some conjecture on AE that it is titanium, but it is heaps darker than our other car (a gunmetal Mazda 6), and with the earthy fleck, so I am suspecting it's carbon. Anyway... After missing out on a great-looking white one with the 430 front end and black-out treatment (by a matter of minutes), having in principle agreed terms, I decided to have a closer look at the only other NA on the market in Oz. This one was near Newcastle NSW, with exceptionally low kms (31k) and fundamentally looked in
  14. Thanks Graeme! Yes the ad for the one I bought was awful and the photos were horrific, but upon inspection by the experts turned out to be a very clean car. I have to admit being a little slow putting a ride thread up on TLF, I created on on AE and need to just copy it across!
