So last week me and the Exige V6 (aka Magpie) passed our three year anniversary. I’ve been lucky enough to own the car since new and we’ve both been on a journey, for some reason, I felt slightly comp

Today I had to get the car down off the jacks to size up the fitment of the Eltech side sills before I look to get installing them on Saturday. It was the first opportunity to see how the car is

So @alias23 - when will be the big reveal? We're all keen to see what you have moved on to.

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

Do you plan to use it a lot on track ? Is the running cost comparable to a Porsche GT3 on track ? Does it have known issues under hard usage ?

More expensive particularly the brakes which can cause a heavy cost if the rotors go

Nah, it's the £3 per cup of coffee at the track cafe's that'll break his bank for sure.

 

Love that 600LT.  Great choice and wish you lots of happy times in it.

Best macca of the range, only downside is the soundtrack but the car is truly amazing - very well done!

I was worried about the soundtrack of the exhaust as many said it was quite muted... however I've been quite impressed, maybe its the noise/vibrations that enhance the 'feel', for sure the exhaust is not a complaint for me.... albeit I can see a better design to remove valves from the cat back ;)

@alias23, might be worth a call to BG Developments about that, they might have a solution for you or will certainly be able to help with one I'd have thought.

Indeed, it seems to be urgent to build or find iron rotors... A lot cheaper, at least in the USA : https://soulpp.com/product/mclaren-600lt-720s-girodisc-iron-rotor-conversion/

 

it looks like the 540C is a "bargain" now to enter the McLaren world. Not as fast and exclusive as a 600LT, but it must be fantastic with more reasonable running costs (and even more for the ones ready to remap the engine). It must be tempting if you live in Great Britain and have a similar budget to the Lotus Exige 410/430 ones.

Girodisc are great if you live in the US but when you try and bring to the U.K. shipping (esp due to the weight) and customs kill the cost benefit for us folks in U.K. and Europe :(

Im also not too keen on the Girodisc lock in whereby you only have them as the source of discs/parts going forward.
