Whoops......

Recommended Posts

Cheers @Bibs - read the booklet earlier 👍

the sport button is pressed as soon as it’s started - dunno why you can’t just set that as a default 🤪

it’s a Launch Edition car so looks to have all the packs - 14500 miles on the clock which will only go up.

the sat nav - managed to get it to open this morning with some assistance and it opens and closed ok now - does some very weird things and I can’t get music and nav at the same time. A master stroke by lotus using a generic double din means it’ll probably get replaced soon

Wait til there's a notch on the temp gauge before you press sport, give the engine and running gear a chance to warm before you go launching it up some country lane!

Perhaps a firmware update for the ICE unit will help. It's not hard to do. If not that a simple factory reset may help. In the settings menu.

Thanks @100th_Idiot - I’ll need to look at a firmware update and how that’s done.

Gotta love the younger generation.

(Now that the gig is up and we know what you did, I have moved this over to the Evora Chat area. :) )

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.

Going through the document pack which came with the car this morning.

I've lifted the engine cover and looked at it briefly - it looks to have a CAI kit on it along with maybe a Larini exhaust. Absolutely no invoices or anything regarding that in the pack......

what should I be looking for to confirm what has been done to the car??

The missus wasn’t amused I took the dog in the car. She’s told me in no uncertain terms I need to keep it clean and not have the dog in it as she might leave marks and mess.....

I think even Wendy is warming to this car - she was asking all sorts of questions yesterday which I’m sure were to gauge what hasn’t yet been done to it so she can notice if things change 🤣

Wish I had the same reaction from from partner ☹️

I am resigned to going in car when I am on my own or with my young daughter who loves it 

the thoughts of a trip into Ireland or Europe are a bit of pipe dream in terms with my other half , shame but all I hear is trade it in for a camper van much more useful ? Really

An Evora, a camper van and no wife? Well, it was her idea :lol:

That thought passed my mind but .....

not yet married anyway just started the planning so this might be the distraction for next 18 months ?

My advice would be to save the wedding cash and don't bother. Give her half the cash and tell her to buy a camper and an Atlas!


Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

Lol 

thought of that too ! 

I think I am going to take the stand that the Evora is my sort of man cave / shed place of retreat 

I will consider a camper van when we downsize and kids are no longer around however my thought of holiday is a nice hotel with running bath and someone else does the cooking not into emptying the septic tank duties 🤨

Good man.

Make it part of the deal. I'll get a Camper van but you, my dear, must do all the cooking whilst we are in it, make sure the fridge is full of wine and beer, and empty and clean the toilet.

Or, you can let me get an Evora and I'll take you away to a nice hotel and spa for the weekend a couple of times a year.  Compromise, always the best way to make a marriage last lol.... Just ask @Barrykearley

Anyway marriage adviser duly noted for future reference 👍🏻

She has her wits about her then!  I put a carbon effect wrap on my roof (to replace the black) and my girlfriend is yet to notice 🤣.

I doubt she'll notice the 2Buler exhaust in a few weeks either!

Anyway - great car the Evora, lovely colour too! 👍
