Hi all. Got a 2010 Evora NA and based near Newcastle, UK.

I've come from a long line of VX220s so I've some knowledge of what I'm letting myself in for.

Had it since October and mods are chocolate leather seats dyed red and Plack-a-like rear silencer and third cat delete

Thanks guys.

Paul - I'm loving it, it handles superbly and the engine and exhaust note are perfect when making progress. Love the V6!

Bravo - here's a comparison video....

Coco - Hahahahhahahaha, sorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry!

Ramjet - This is a before and after split of the seat dye:

TBH, that’s not as obnoxious as I thought it would be. What’s it like at ‘max chat’? And what about motorway speeds - droney  at all?

Thanks! I love the colour combo, my VX220 was the same. Furniture Clinic did the dyeing for £700 and I paid £300 to BTG Performance for them to dismantle and refit. I could have done it myself however for that price I couldn't say no really.

Steven, we really should have an ex VX220 owners meet. In addition to Coco there is @Foxy & a few others who's name escapes me ATM. Also at least 2 who have moved on from Evora to Exiges and 3 who moved directly to Exiges. @CocoPops will probably remember more than me:rolleyes:

Would be good to gather at the annual .org meet, are you going?

BTW, Mrs CP wants to know if you still wear those "LOUD" shirts :lol:

Welcome :welcome:. You’ve found the right place. :thumbup:

Your car must sound nuts with a straight through pipe. Got any recordings of it?

Like I said previously, you’ll find plenty of VX220>Evora owners here. @CocoPops, @PaulCP & co. 

And some with an Evora AND a VX220.....!   My wife says it is because I'm as mad as a hatter and love to suffer. How little does she know.... But then we've been married for 24 years though I suppose that proves her "loves to suffer" comments....

Lovely looking car and more interior pics please. interested in the how the re-colourisation of the leather has worked out.  Enjoy the Evora.

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!
