Really pleased for you @windymiller and can remember just how you feel.

I bought my first proper sports car (not the XR2, XR3, 106GTI's I had in my yoof!) 7 years ago. It was an Evora NA and at that time I had been working for almost 30 years. So similar to you.

After I had bought it, I would literally sit on the step (didn't have a garage then, just a car port) with a nice glass of wine in the evening and stare at it. It was beautiful! I washed it. I polished it. I just thought how lucky I was.

Enjoy it. Savour it. And for you the best is yet to come when you drive it!  Take it easy, learn the car. Listen to it. The NA is wonderful!  Superb choice.

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

on my way !!! wanted me n the wife to go out in it because we decided to buy the car after loosing three close members of her family in 9 months last year ages 46, 50 and 54 followed a week later (of one funeral) by her fathers life changing stroke so this trip and the car is a bit of self indulgance for us if that makes sense

I'm not sure of the value of super unleaded i the NA, but I haven't run an NA as an owner. Others will advise.

 

Re the 3 rings. Do you have enough post counts to do such a thing?   🤔

Makes zero difference on any NA car, the higher octane just means cars with forced induction can up their boost a little as the higher octane means better resistance to compression detonation.

If you want some peace of mind, just stick to branded and not supermarket fuels, their additives keep things a little cleaner.

I used both super and normal unleaded in my NA for different periods. Found that it actually ran better on normal unleaded.

Is it actually lower octane it just lower carbon emissions?

Super will still be the same as the old fuel anyway, it's the regular that will be changing and shouldn't make much (any?) difference to your experience with it.

was reading really about when the lower octane fuel comes in during september but then the evora will be going to winter sleep then lol

Presume September is a misprint
