@JohnLegend - very well named as only a Legend would get a GT430 and get to give the wife the good news on the same day. And it isn't even your birthday neither (or is it!)

Congrats. Seen the car, it's a super looking one, just hope some of the red piping falls off then it will look even better lol....

 

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!

Very big day for me today. This is now in the garage. Really special car. Looks very low and compact. Didn't take up the garage space I was expecting. It has massive presence with those win

Mine has been delivered yesterday   

Guilty m'lud! Motorsport Green. Carbon race seats, sound deadening, air con, no stereo, black diamond cut wheels with black wingstays. Impossible to believe but it should be sitting in

Mods are almost done and CF seats are in, more pics in the forum and will upload higher quality. Doing something nice on A Panels this group will hopefully appreciate!

Hi, did you have the original comfy padded seats in before changing them? If so, do you still have them? Thanks 

Hi, so is anyone going to c&m this coming weekend?

He might well do. But they will be in the USA. 

Are you after a set of the Sparcos?

Yeah I realised that after a little while. 

I'd like the comfort seats yes. I've had a quote and I could put a deposit down on a house for what they cost to order new. 

The ones in press car pictures are ultimately what I'm after. 

Do you know of any? 

Thanks

@dcmp I sure do and they are in the US! And yes they cost a fortune just like the CF buckets!

I understand and appreciate why you want them! They are pretty comfy and definitely better for daily! I have found the CF buckets a little too narrow but damn are they awesome!

Not specifically but they do come up on the secondhand market occasionally. @bosshog found a set to fit in his 410 (in place of the cf buckets). 

Otherwise, rather than pay the Lotus premium (as you’ve discovered), they are a standard Sparco seat so you should be able to source them elsewhere (without the GT430 stitching). An even comfier alternative would be a set of Recaros from the original Evora. Although new brackets or adaptors might have to be made up to get them to fit.

@dcmp I'm looking to go the other way around. The Sparco to the CF 

Hey, looks like Cilla is still working her magic. Perhaps we could swap some pics. I'll contact you directly. 

Thanks guys. This was a quick meetup prior to going on to caffeine and machines 8am this morning. It's a group around the Swindon area

Love the 3-11.  Only 25 mins drive from C&M so shame couldn’t pop out to see the lotus attendance.

Lovely looking car. Do you know which shade of blue that is? It looks very similar to my Estoril Blue GT410 Sport. 95630977-0049-4067-BC96-5B7A6194E779.thumb.jpeg.808b0683fbedba0f6d55cdfa1ba6a19b.jpeg

I will admit I’ve been threatening to let you see the car for some little while now Kevin. I don’t have the excuse of being away on another holiday now this year so maybe I should do this. 😁
Will it be the first socially distanced meet since the madness began back in March?
