Hello all, After a brief flirtation with a couple of Morgan Aero 8s I’ve been seduced by a 410 Exige at Silverstone, collect next week, can’t come soon enough! cheers Gareth

Collected this morning, still quite quick at running in speeds! Am going to have to get the exhaust valve override button fitted, far too civilised below 4500rpm 

Only with your neighbours!

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Hey Gareth, am I right in thinking that sport mode will open the flaps anyway? ...if yes, no need for the override button. 

Lovely car btw.

Not anymore unfortunately, still only opens at 4500 rpm, I had the first service (and noisy button) fitted on Monday.

Have you done 1,000 miles already?! WOW! Love it.  What was that 2-3 days?

Not quite! It had 500 miles on it when I bought it, am off to France with a bunch of TVR owning mates on Friday (they’re expecting me to turn up in the Aero 8 😀)

so had to get the service / noisy button sorted before we left, am looking forward to seeing the look on their faces when I roll into the car park!

Ooh that Aero 8 is a handsome car!  You must have saved a chunk on the 410.  Good call.

Hope so! It’s SOR with a Morgan dealer, unfortunately the market is a bit slow.

Hi, trip went well thanks, off down to the Italian lakes later this month, my wife’s packing will be the challenge for that trip!

The switch is the standard one and was fitted by Silverstone before I collected the car, no mention of warranty, which I really can’t see being an issue.

I dont have an actual picture, and the Exige 410 catalog doesn't appear to be on line, however I am assuming the later Supercharged V6 cars have a vacuum operated valve its connected to a vacuum line that gets a signal from the ECU, when you start the car it is open until there is a vacuum to close the valve. its item 5 in this snip. ( yes I know its the correct model but I couldn't find the 410 parts list.)
