  1. The Toxic Cost of going green - Unreported World on Channel 4 - about Cobalt mining in Africa https://www.channel4.com/programmes/unreported-world/on-demand/72426-004
  2. Renaultsport Megane unit? Possible given new tie up with Alpine/Renault
  3. The leave vote resulted in a significant drop in the value of the pound, which increased cost as oil/fuel is prices in dollars. However since this was over 3 years ago the problem, which seems to have been dealt with by most other businesses in the sector, points to poor management at TC. After all TC nearly went under 8 years ago. Most of the (erroneously) reported £600 million cost of repatriation is covered by ATOL and ABTA. Cost to the taxpayer will be nearer £100 million.

    Evora MOT

  5. My Excel was fitted with Dim Dip which I have disabled. As mentioned pull the Dim Dip Relay, and then there will be a fuse (34 on the Excel) which has to be pulled to stop the headlights switching on whilst the pods are closed. Works for me and I run LEDs in the sidelights to get a pseudo DLR effect. No change to the wiring - I suspect the the Esprit uses the same basic system.
  6. There was a service bulletin early in the Evora's life (Dec 2009) about water ingress. I have attached a copy in case it helps. Check the rubber boot seal also; there were problems with these. Evora TSB.pdf
  7. My 1991 Excel is only on its third battery from new - current one since 2012 and still strong. Always kept on battery conditioner (CTek) whilst in the garage).
  8. My Europa Special in Roman Purple taken in 1977 - it was "special".
  9. At Launch in 1994 the Ferrari F355 Berlinetta was about £78000 (plus add ons) or about 30% more than the Esprit V8.
  10. 60 litre alloy tank from Pro Alloy - used in some of the race prepared Exige V6s. Straight swap therefore also fits any s2 Exige/Elise.
  11. In action at Rockingham 17/08/16 with the Sporting Bears
