  1. ahhh i know unit 4 now (weird as PJS and unit 4 have the same unit number), used to drive past there quite a few times a week on hawkins lane, just round the corner from my friends old garage and the other guys down wharf road. Might drop him an email when the time comes as he can do my trans fluid at S belt. Sounds good to me as i work in burton so can walk there.
  2. Might not do a full service c as looked at my book and it's had trans fluid at 14k and all the filters and brake fluids 3k ago, it was serviced again before I bought it. So maybe just need a belt and trans in 10k etc. Make up my own service schedule ha ha. Sparks,, oil etc anyone can do (it's a JDM car after all 😜😜) , just the trans as it's an ips I would like doing correctly.
  3. Random question to all the 10mile radius evora crew lol, mine is on 32k and now worried at 36k it needs a c service or at least box oil on top of service. I would usually go to a mate but he went out of business, why are some ppl saying Β£350 and others 1k, seems crazy differences. I'm unhappy if I pay Β£150 lol. Someone mentioned PJS, he is Β£1040 that seems insane. I never used a lotus place with esprit but I don't have that luxury now, clutch on the esprit cost me Β£280 πŸ‘πŸ‘
  4. That's it I'm selling mine now, I like to own rare lotus's πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Need to change it ASAP πŸ˜… We must have the biggest congregation of them in the uk
  5. I just have a the ideas when it comes to modding, my friends are the ones that make the magic happen ha ha. My bodyshop friend built a car for someone that won every car show in Europe in a year. He did my esprit, actually invented the body kit, as of course they don't exist πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ˜…πŸ˜…. My garage guy, sadly not in business now, did my nitrous systems, lowering etc etc, electric mods. Grew up around the max power generation I'm afraid ha ha. My elan and esprit were in max powers top 100 cars. Just makes you stand out in a car that already makes you stand out naturally, only owned the evora 4 mon
  6. WOW, so basically in a 10mile radius we have ALL the evora's ha ha Im from the esprit world originally & had probably the first heavily modded street show car, which some ppl loved & a lot in the esprit world hated LMAO, nitrous on a esprit and every panel changed why not ha ha. it was featured in a lot mags and even on 5th gear, ive been on the forum from the early days but had to sell esprit due to business issues, so hopefully im back now in the evora, how long for i don't know but i hope for a long time so i can upset everyone once more lol (evora ppl seem more into modding th
  7. I see a really nice white one with the GT wing around as well which is lovely. Always at DIY places in swad and burton, as the evora is a versatile estate car also 🀣🀣, I believe there is a pretty new one hiding somewhere near Measham as he is an old friends neighbour. He has a collection of loti.
  8. There are alot OF YES'S in reply to this spotted post 🀣🀣🀣 Twas me lol. It is the one from Burntwood, first time in my life buying from a dealer and they treated me really well in replacing bit and bobs for free afterwards. Hopefully in the future it won't be silver and will be modded but not too crazy, well for me πŸ™„. You in burton/swad then
  9. Not the best but a quick rev match with new zorst. In real life its louder. VID-20201011-WA0001(1).mp4
  10. All in mate Fitting... Made on the car bespoke... Choose your tip... Vat. Full stainless from manifold, the old exhaust weighs a tonne as well Contact powerflow they are a franchise around the country, usually ran from Mr tyre garages now I think. I'm near Burton on trent and there are 3 within 30 miles of me For some reason ppl think you have to buy one from a company but what is more perfect than a man actually bending the exhaust in front of you and asking how you want it to look and sound. Sod the £1500 ones 🀣🀣🀣bespoke for £260 with lifetime guarantee please.
  11. Thank you..... I'm soooo happy to here someone say this as I've been fretting about a leak. Ha ha ha. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
  12. Hi guys Just had a straight pipe fitted to my na evora and WOW it sounds like a modified aventador it's incredible. But in non sport mode you can listen to tunes and it's pretty normal, just sporty (like it should be), no drone. (Β£260....bargin I thought and they had to remove the rear bumper as all the Allen bolts were rounding off) Question is, ppl go on about a valve in the original exhaust..... Where is it located as I need to plug the vacuum pipe I keep reading. Don't think I have one Thanks in advance
  13. THANKS MATE might go to my bodyshop tbh and see what we can do as like you said the prices are CRAZY there were a couple on here for about Β£150ish but it was years ago
  14. I looked for barge boards but all the post are years old, does anyone know of a seller that isn't lotus (wood for £££££ nooo). I like the idea of using the 4 existing bolts and sikaflex (bond) the centre as I don't want to drill near the wiring loom by the door I hear.
  15. Well I will wait till fitted etc. But they are a legit brand, mintex. Like we said its not a race pad. Next on my list I think a ball Joint is rattling passenger side.
