  1. No I didn't, strangely enough last month (only two years later) I finally got all four wheels re-finished gloss black and I have to say I am delighted, it suits my car better than the grey did. I will post a pic if interested. £430 for all four including Boris 20%.
  2. Wow that's a massive bargain, but surely a buyers market at the moment. I can only guess the seller was desperate to sell. Would be interesting to see if a 400 has dropped below £50k before?
  3. Really sorry to be so late to the party - going back to the question on page 2 about the front spolier, here is another pic. Basically it was just masked at the line where the section from the front wing narrows to the point where it flares back out to from the splitter. To me the front end doesn't have much definition without it: And here is the pic I got the idea from all those years ago:
  4. @jerzybondov - Yes I do, it was going to go up on the classifieds at the weekend. Will drop you a PM

    WANTED: Exige V6S

    Hi @pete, yes works fine. Was a bit of a faff to fit though. I can give you details but mine was an Evora.
  6. OK, after five Sundays I have finally got the under tray off. I had to butcher eight of the bolts to get them off so ordered some replacements. I went for black stainless steel bolts from Carbolts: But having read the above, not sure what I should be doing. Am I better off using the stainless bolts I have just got using one of the products mentioned, or with factory steel bolts with some copper grease? To add insult to injury, I was doing this to put a decat pipe on
  7. I am in the process of removing my undertray so I can remove the 3rd cat and fit a straight through pipe. I think the rust even surpasses what I have seen on my Esprit. Shit the bed what a job to get it off, I am having to cut them with my dremel as the bolts are solid. With them being hex head as well doesn't help (although one did bite enough to actually snap one of the captive nuts off of the plate it was welded onto) - very helpful. Wheel off to get to that!
  8. It will put your mind at rest that you haven't been taken for a ride for one thing. I would also say you are intending to update this thread for other owners, and it would be really helpful to have some pics and a summary of its condition posted here. I did a similar thing on oil cooler pipes which look like they could be problematic on cars around 10/11 years old. I tend to forget how old my car given its condition and mileage in that it is now in double figures so age related issues may start appearing.
  9. If they do replace it with the 2nd hand one, ask if you can have yours back so you can have a look in more detail.
  10. I don't need to add now it wasn't me (but I just did).
  11. On Woodside Avenue just shortly before midday. I was in my white Evora coming the other way, did flash. Anyone on here?
  12. Thanks @KennyN, yes pretty relieved to be going back. I have seen enough of the inside of my house these last five months that being away isn't too much of an issue, just not having my own bed. The Evora is all sorted though, it was spark plugs so thankfully not too expensive to fix. The Esprit still has a few bugs to iron out which I can look at now I am working again. Fingers crossed for September meet,
  13. Can't do next Wednesday unfortunately, so @ADF will maybe need to look at doing the electrical course another time. Finally got the call to return to work this coming Monday, but they want me in Nottingham 3 days a week so hence the no show next Wednesday.
  14. I took my 2010 NA Evora to a local car meet, which was mainly dominated by older cars and American stuff. It got a few looks but was largely ignored, and I did see a few puzzled faces wondering what it was. I do now genuinely believe most people don;t know what it is, or that it exists, The car simply doesn't deserve that. Next time I am going to take the Esprit down, they will F***ing look at that!
  15. Thanks Dave, will be giving that a try too.
