  1. Its all shifting a bit but it won't last IMO. Castle Lotus told me last week that they had a 380 sport coming in for 58k, then sent me pics and said it was 58500 and then put it on PH for 60500. Also a Black 410 coming into Silverstone for 65k if anyone is interested.
  2. I put an offer in on a 410 for 2 grand less than asking and no deal. I think dealers are being very rigid on pricing. Will demand drop for the some lotus models now that the new shiny thing have arrived? I think exige drivers that bought them for what they are intended will continue to want them but some people are easily lured by something new. At Goodwood yesterday apparently the stand took 600 deposits.
  3. Does anyone here know this car? Could potentially be a good route for me, I could add some more carbon and change the wheels and it would be just the look I want with a nice amount of power. Is this supercharger upgrade considered reliable? https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/11940908 Thanks Lee
  4. Thanks I made an offer on a car today, fingers crossed!
  5. Cash waiting for the right car. Many thanks!
  6. I nearly put a deposit on a Sport 380 today, I was all set to do it however watching some videos on the cars I found some comments about heat soak. This got me looking at solutions and considering what else I would spend on the car once I bought it. Exige 380 Sport £57k ish If I added a some other bits over time. Exhaust so I can track the car £1500 Induction £500+ Pulley? £? Intercooler £? Potentially a larger wing £1500? I have spent north of £5k fairly easily, am I better off going for the 410? The answer is probably where do you stop? I will only do 4-5 track days per year so the remainder of the driving is on B roads. Any thoughts that will help my decision making process? Thanks!

    Congratulations. I finally sold my car and called about this today to be told it had sold around 10 days ago. Enjoy!
  8. Cash waiting for a good car. Thanks!
  9. C19 has definitely slowed things down but I have still managed 10k miles in the 570s in 18 months. I think the two cars are very similar in some ways but also very different. Big power and big boost, pointy and seamless gearshifts vs revvy, manual, feelsome, small.
  10. I had a 12c for 2 years and 22k miles and really enjoyed it. They have steel brakes so much cheaper to run on brakes. My 570 is a track pack car which has been to MSO for some more track biased mods. Blindingly fast and great on the limit but after nearly 2 years I am ready for a change. My local track is Brands and I think the Evora will be well suited. I only need this to be a toy and I have been contemplating buying a 3 Eleven and having a custom screen made so I don't need to use a crash helmet. For a toy and the odd track day I think this could be great, you only live once!
  11. Thanks for the replies. Jep, part of the attraction is the cost to run including track days, brakes on the mclaren are not cheap! Jerzybondov, that looks exactly like the car Bell and Colvill let me have for a few days. Pic attached. I will check out Komotec. I didn't actually feel that the 410 lacked power, I just like to tinker! Love that blue!
  12. Hi all, new guy here. I can't stop thinking about the Evora 410 I had recently as a courtesy car. I dearly love my Mclaren but am thinking of changing it for an Evora GT430 sport. There are a few reasons but mainly because I think it suits my driving requirements better now. I loved being back in a manual, I loved the size of the car for B roads, I handling and braking and of course the noise. I am trying to make a decision and have some questions that hopefully Evora owners can help me with. - There is a 430 GTE and a GT430 sport, are there any differences between the two? - Are the Ohlins height adjustable? - What sort of power would a decat, smaller pulley and an upgraded air intake provide? - How does the build quality hold up on Evoras after 20k plus miles? Thanks!
