  1. In the UK, yes? Tell Porsche UK and I bet they will not be impressed and have a few words to say to the dealer. My wife is on her second Macan for the only reason she is not treated as a dipsy female. I had the opposite - total respect without being too grovely. I felt sorry for the salesman in not buying the Cayman, but as said already, the suspension jarred my back too much! But he understood and was professional in every way. If the Evora feel is called analogue, then I love analogue! However, I do think Lotus could have included a few luxuries from the digital cars - in particul
  2. Try Phil - [email protected] He has every conceivable GTE panel, so may well have GT4 or can point you in a good direction.
  3. I should have done some googling before my post above! I now see that the central belly plate is part of the chassis and not a pate added on afterwards. In which case, the outer chassis rails must bedirectly above a row of bolts that , in my case, secures the bargeboard? In which case, i should be able to use my platform with a wooden rail just in from these bolts?
  4. I just tried an air bag jack I borrowed, and it is maybe half an inch too high to slide under! I see on ebay there are electric scissor jacks that are not expensive - I am tempted to try one out.
  5. I assume from this that the aluminium belly plate actually touches the chassis, so that jacking at the right point will not distort the plate? Where exactly does the chassis run - how far in from the cills? I have a mid-rise scissor platform that will just slide under the Evora that would be good to use, but I want to be totally sure where the chassis sides run before I go lifting. Does anybody perhaps know the total width of the chassis, and the width of the individual rails even?
  6. I thought this would be the case. Suits me well as it will allow me to put a stand on the front. My so called low entry long reach trolley jack will not extend to the front jacking points without raising the body. I am thinking of maybe getting a pneumatic jack, but their lift, or certainly the less expensive ones are only about 200mm.
  7. Reviving this if I may please - jacking the Evora on one of the rear jack points, will this tend to lift both rear wheels or a rear and the front on the same side? (I will find out next week, but interesting to know beforehand...)
  8. Thanks Jimbo! I think these thumb indents are a bit of a fad. I have not driven a car where my hands have felt comfortable using them. I shall instead use an earlier wheel, or reshape mine, and concentrate on making the rim a few milimetres fatter.
  9. Will someone please confirm that regardless of age of the car or that it is manual or IPS, all the wheel variants will fit onto the back cover without modification? To be precise, I wish to fit an early wheel without the thumb indent onto a 2015 sport racer IPS? Also will the steering wheel finisher plate from a sport racer with thumb indent bolt/stick onto an early wheel? - ie the East West flanks will line up with each other? Thanks Hal.
  10. Even if they did use' hommanyleft', they are wrong as the website only lists 604...
  11. Thanks! I take it that, like the days of the early Elan, recording in Lotus is still non existant? Surely in this day and age, someone must have made notes on each change to the car as they happened, no?
  12. Not sure where to ask this question - but, is there a list/pamphlet that shows the changes made to the Evora year by year, anywhere? Especially what were the engine changes as they happened charting the increase from 280bhp up to the 430 we see now?
  13. I second that! I too inherited mine, so cannot for sure say how much different the sound is. What you will have over the chaps with RHD, is that with your window down, the intake is at your ear and you can almost feel the suck, let alone hear it..!
  14. A follow up on this, and a note to anyone who, for whatever reason, wishes to make a flex-fuel conversion in France to use E85 - it is illegal. Yes illegal! Yes, it is perfectly possible and there are some respected kits out there, all with an engine guarantee, but France has a rule that anything over 14hp administrative cannot use E85! The Evora is 25hp. There is however something in the wings saying that this might be overturned in the near future.
  15. Hi Darryl - well,the outrageous wing is on now causing even more of a stir!
