V cool! Love the colour.

Post your thoughts on it compared to your trade in too ;-) I'm sure there's a few of us that might be interested.

Picked it up tonight. It's almost shocking the quality difference all across the board. Hard to put your finger on any specific thing, but it just all adds up to a car that is really well sorted. Big things (significant improvement in shifting feel) and small things (mirror on the passenger visor is no longer simply glued on to the visor). One of the biggest things is the exhaust note--just a huge difference. This car sounds like a sports car when it starts. The 2010 sounds like a Lexus saloon.

The agent hooked me up with some swag, too--a nice touch.

Here is the exhaust note:

I'm convinced. Car sounds great!

Very jealous :-)

An NA in Carbon Grey or Black with Half Alcantara/Leather Interior with Silver Grey Stitching would be my next car..

If it was for the Weekends maybe an S with Team Kawasaki Racing Green with full Alcantara and green stitching :-D

The passenger sunvisor has a mirror?! Pics.. My Le has nothing the Mrs hates it!

Haha . . . yes it does! {proof below--but I haven't peeled off the plastic protection yet}. So Evoras went from no mirror, to a glued on mirror, to an integrated mirror installed inside the visor. Evolution at its finest!  :w00t:

Saddos! Nice you're keeping it mint for the next owner rather than enjoy it yourself though*!

 

From a certified hater of plastic on new stuff. Straight in the bin, the lot of it...

Maybe the glue wasn't up to spec on Ryan's?

That's worrying considering the cars glued together :P

I don't think there's any traces of the glue .I'll check tomorrow and report back

Only a few month into my Evora ownership so still rather happy with the car as it is. BUT if I were to spec the car as I really would have it this would be the result:

Evora S 2+0

GT4 bodywork

Nitron adjustable 1-way dampers, 46 mm

Motorsport wheels and anti-roll bars

Baffled sump

Roll cage behind the seats (I know that's not available out of the Box for Evora)

Alcantara seats

Snap-off steering wheel as in Exige Cup

4-p harness

Colour Chrome orange, Aspen white or Solar yellow

So pretty much an Evora equal to an Exige Cup :-)

Fully agree, an Evora Cup would be a great win for all, especially Lotus! Something to match the GT3.

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

Should be within reach without to much fuss IF someone decided to do it. All bits are available, just make it into one package. Just need to chop up the roll cage and disable the airbag light... External power cut and a fire extinguisher would make the package complete. Preferable with a motorsport plate as well :-)
