GFWilliams Liquid Yellow, Slightly Modified, Exige V6

Recommended Posts

With regret the warranty on Transforged seems to be in doubt reading various reviews online hence one of the reasons I haven't gone forward with the afterburners myself. 20% is a ball ache but actually better than losing a further 80% if they fail and you get zero customer support or resolution - Id just ensure you have everything in writing to guaranteed you get an 80% refund before you send them back. GRP dont really do it for me at the moment, they look too much like an electric hob design right now - So standard I remain.

Not the best photo, but managed to get a good deal on this VBox - thanks to @alias23 for spotting it at a good price and letting me know! 

I’m excited to get on track now...

I’ve ordered a new set of Trofeo R from Pirelli so hopefully they’ll arrive when I return so I can get my car through an MOT when I return from Spain...

New lights have arrived from Greg’s Race Parts!

I'm so impressed with the quality, it’s even better than OEM.

Quite frankly amusing to compare to my old lights...

Mine will be waiting when I get out of the Sahara.... 😛  they really are special.... plus a refund on the old ones too.

George, did you get the reflectors too? and a quick tip, put a thin neoprene seal around the back edge aka the original lamps to keep water out.

cheers

They look well made. Can you flip them over and show us what they look like? 😉😁

 Think he’s going for the big reveal......and probably won’t be seeing them until fitted😄

Thanks Greg @GRP - how much for just 2 instead of 4?

No problem.   

For Evoras and 380's with two lights it is $385 with the same shipping rates.

Order placed 😀

Greg is doing me a slight twist on the smoked ones. White halo on the inner light, rather than the centre single led.

@geartoxand @Kristof Thys, in a last minute decision for family reasons, I've unfortunately got to return to the UK and am setting off tomorrow, so won't be in Marbella.  

2200km roughly to get home... Can't say I'm massively looking forward to the journey, but I'm quite looking forward to driving in the UK again to be honest.

So yesterday I drove back from Marbella to London all in one go.  It was about 2300km and I think took 22 hours.

A couple of thoughts...

The Tillett Seats are brilliant, I couldn't have done it without them.  They're difficult to sleep in though.

The car drone is pretty bad, I think I'll try and add some more sound proofing behind the seats.

The Pro Alloy 60l fuel tank is brilliant. I managed to get 400km with 10% fuel still showing. I was sitting at 140-150km/h for most of that time so I'd say that's pretty good.

Nitron 3 way dampers when softened up a bit are great.

I need new tyres before I drive the car again, the wet bit of the drive was scary.

The car feels significantly quicker in the UK than it did in Marbella, I think a combination of the temperature and air density. The car pulls significantly harder here, it really surprised me!

I'm tired.

Brave man!  For what it is worth, for prolonged drives I use a noise cancelling headset...

Be interesting how you find the car now, vs the power you have in the Exige.  Did 5k blat miles in a year in my 140bhp caterham and loved it .  


Previously owned :Exige 380,  Exige 350,  Evora 400,  Exige V6S,  Esprit GT3,  2-11 SC,  Evora S,  Elite 501
