Yes it is but I'm playing with making the splines that hold them in wider to cope with the heat and expansion , it's a balance between them.being big enough to hold in as the ally expands and the centre flexes with heat and them not going in when cold.... Or I'll just glue the buggers in.

My favourite in Nottingham was Iberico, in the church basement with the vaulted ceilings.  It might "only" be Tapas but my god it's good (or was, haven't been for a whil due to bloody COVID!)

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!

First year service plus headlight replaced after the sidelight decided not to work.

it’s so depressing to hear that even the new cars have the same poorly built headlight unit since launch in 2009. 🙄

You mean from the supplier of Aston Martin headlights amongst many other prestigious brands?  The issue is the move to ever more complex LED / Electronics and we all know how electronics can just fail.

Forgot to mention all for the price of £275 can any Sports car manufacturer compete with that? It sure made my day and made paying the bill at the lakeside so much easier.

I know the background. That doesn’t absolve Lotus for not fixing an MOT failure item that manifested itself even before the cars needed an MOT.

They did fic it, fully and to the owners satisfaction as they replaced the whole unit at their own expense under warranty. Plenty of other owners don't seem to have had the same issue so let's not throw bricks for exceptions eh?

As I said, it's the nature of electronics etc. My sons humungous TV (that he bought himself) failed the other night, less than 2 years old. Maybe I should phone Sony and tell them to fix their design/manufacture problem despite loads of others not having a problem :devil:

As rare as a panda in the wild and just as good looking.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Added even more lightness to it today - converted it into a 0+0, :P.

In reality, I was hoping that the small access panel through the rear bulkhead would let me get at the 1 exhaust manifold retaining nut that I can't seem to get at from any direction but no such luck. I can now see it - just - but still can't get any tools near it, :(. Not only did it not help with this job, it's also thrown up something else to add to my 'to do' list as the fibre/foam insulation layer on the metal heatshield is running with water so I've got a leak somewhere to trace now too, :realmad:.

Not a bad review, I’m not sure if this guy is trying to be smart or funny, see if pick the girlfriend reference....the video is a reasonable review until he starts to ramble...
