  1. Tbh He was actually quite polite even though he was speaking like that haha. Nice car is so "last week fam" 🤣🤣
  2. Well just yesterday I had a group of 13yo walk past and one lad said (for context I live in the Midlands near Ashby NOT south central LA, I assume the kid thought he did, luckily I speak the language 🤣🤣😂😂😂😂) "you has a sick whip man, I has one in forza Innit and izzz modded it, could I have a look in da whip"...... Yes not a problem...... "oh my god, this whip is bare phat, I noticed ya have a lock round ya wheel to stop man's taxing ya ride, safe man" Mmmm I wonder if it was fiddy cent. But a white 13yo middle class version. 🤣🤣🤣
  3. Hi Saw a white evora coming from Melbourne into Ticknall, very quick look but thought it had a different splitter but not sure, with GT wing, I was in the silver one with orange.bits 🤣🤣
  4. well you need to bring the evora so we can be a 2 evora club (that's if it's not throwing it down of course)
  5. it was indeed me, out of all the places to be spotted ha ha ha, around the corner from my house i walked past your livered Elise (i assume it was yours?) and said i should of parked next to you that was the first time visiting in the evora, im thinking of going to the appleby magna one in 2 weeks after an old work mate that i saw there said it was REALLY good i was surprised at the turn out P.S. you missed my lit up engine when it got dark HA HA HA
  6. Well I may be late to the party on finding out about these sound cameras on UK roads but God its annoying. I totally understand idiots in beemers with there engine/exhaust destroying crackle maps being a problem in built up areas. So my question is what is everyone going to do with there modded exhausts now, I just downloaded a db app and on cold start up mine is 100-110db. OK when warm and out on a road it will decrease a little but I need to try it. Would be better if they installed them and made them active at say 7pm till 8am etc. They have been around in Kensington for 2 years but fining a Arab in a lambo is like me going to the shop for a 1p chew in the 80s 😂😂 they don't care.
  7. @Cdm2018 It was really simple. 4 led flexi bars. 2 zip tied to the black bar running across the top near the window, a third stuck to the boot above the engine and as they came in a 4 pack 1 is stuck on under original boot light. All run from the fag lighter in the boot. Sorry for silly late reply as didn't see the post
  8. Not a fan of silver cars but it was not a bad deal a year ago, so a bit or orange has now been added. Mirrors... Bespoke tilted edged Barge boards.... Engine cover inc light up engine at night and through vents lol. Needs some front and rear orange now. Then alot of saving for the big mods.
  9. Yeah., looking at the package they offer I would need a st/st manifold making (that's where the money is) and a £40 K & N panel filter. Which I will get anyway. I do like the BOE intake and cones but there is alot of work to blank it off from the engine bay heat. Prefer to spend on cosmetics LOL. sa looking through what they do basically I would need a man hole straight through which is where the money is saying that the Aluminum for the barge boards has just arrived.
  10. I did think a map on a NA giving 40bhp was a little high, i have a plack style straight pipe on the rear anyway, would love to remove the pre-cats as well, but thats alot of money i could spend in other areas of the car. I personally think just removing the massive weight of the exhaust helps (i believe around 35kg). very interested in an induction kit, do k&n panel filters help alot? or is it again shelling out for a crazy priced BOE intake from the states. alot of the mods for the evora seem very highly priced, i can only assume its because of the low volume there selling. i had my exhaust made for me in st/st for £240 iirc, that is a 1/4 of the price i see ppl paying.
  11. I thought i would ask, to see if anyone had done it. surprised most cars aren't encrypted, unless the map removes it etc only met the guy today, i might ask to see if it can communicate he seems to have a lot of gear and said map companies do different things, i can't remember which box of tricks he said was better to use. ive read on the forums that ppl have messed with setting though etc? are they running (quoting F&F) "stand alone fuel management systems"
  12. Hi i've just had map on our battered diesel saab run-around to remove a few things lets say i spoke to the guy and he looked up the lotus and there is a stage 1 map available for it, it came up with the same ECU as the "S", the "S" remap gave an extra 40bhp IIRC but the NA was close to that also. Im used to turbo cars (not owned a NA in 20 years) so im surprised anything could be done Map wise without duct taping a turbo under it ha ha anyone had a map on an evora? i assume it would just alter the air/fuel mix maybe.
  13. Well us IPS ppl have an advantage here, it does a lot less damage i always said i wouldn't go auto and im still not used to the manual paddles but the car was not a bad price and low miles as for accuracy, i assume its not smack on at all, but then my speedo is horrendously out, the only way is proper equipment or speed/timing traps on drag strips. just a bit of fun. wonder what lotus used. maybe fred the farmer in a field counting 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi
  14. yeah i did wonder on the accuracy but it was worth a go , thats the reason i stayed in one position for a bit just realised i did it slightly up hill (0.5 gradient i would say or less as i bike the road) and 3/4 tank as well.
  15. Maybe it was 0-62mph, looked at a few numbers but the lowest is 4.9secs for ips box 0-60mph and 5secs 100km. So 4.6secs is still under.
