What made you happy today?

That does sound a lot better than the news from your previous few days. But there is a long recovery road ahead. A few ups and downs but hopefully more up days than others,

Just noticed that the SELOC Isle of Man trip is finally back on for this year, 1st week in August.

Booked my place, and believe there are still 2 places left for what is a fantastic, fun, social trip on some of the best driving roads in the UK. Some members on here booked too ( @Colin P and @CocoPops for instance), so get in quick if you fancy it.  Boat leaves Liverpool early Friday morning, back Tuesday afternoon.  Can't wait to catch up with everyone from past trips, and meet some new owners too.

Usually some nice activities lined up (previous have included a track session, go-karting, quad biking in the forest, etc) and a good get together each evening over a nice meal. Plenty of time to do your own thing and explore the beautiful roads, scenery and beaches of the Island. It really is a stunning place if you haven't been.

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!

Yep, can’t wait! Really looking forward to it.

I’ve got family on the island too.

Me too despite not having a Lotus this year, but seeing as I organised it for about 5 years I have special dispensation 😁

Blessed with the competence to be a slave to the incapable.

Please don't @Colin P as I'd miss chatting with you! Also, given their appalling reliability I have now tow bar to pull you back to the hotel. Vorsprung Brokedown Teckinal as they say.

Brilliant. That means my Evora cover will fit the Coxster GTS. Happy days....

As an aside, been looking at a Coxster as a DD for work. Given it's just a skip with a decent paint job and wheels I wouldn't have to worry re parking door dings etc.

Was going to go Auto, instead of manual as a DD. 

Any of the Porsche fan boys got any tips re engine to choose based on reliability, drive characteristics etc? Do I go for the 2.0 or 2.5 engine and do you really need the PASM suspension extra?

Coxster S 3.2L. Don't fanny about with a 2L. You'll regret it

Or go for the 2.7L minimum
