Re: CUP 220 - S CUP or Exige v6

Totally subjective, but as lovely as the Elise is, its more of less the same formula as the Exige S2.. Same-ish weight, similar 4-cyl engine. Seems like a more up to date iteration of the S2 Exige. Watched one of the Carfection video reviews, and that was his conclusion. Not that it makes it any les...

Re: Yokohama AD08R discontinued

I 'downgraded' from AD08R's to V105S, and found them much better on the road (its a pure road tyre, no track pretences) with as much grip as you'd need on the road.

Plus it comes in the correct 195/50/16 :)

Spoke to Chrissy yesterday and mentioned your car, give him a shout.

Ross, not for something like that unfortunately.
No probs, cheers Mike.

I've dropped CMC an email to see if they can take it on, and can get it trailer doon.

Re: Long shot - car to Craig at CMC

Depends, what's up? Unknown electrical issue / starting issue. Very intermittent, tried / replaced / cleaned most things already myself with initial success, but back to before. Someone good at electrical fault finding that can diagnose for cash money before I go down the route of new loom / ECU / ...

Chunky though! (same weight as the M4) Pity they couldn't get it down to sub 1,500kg..

Re: Car Storage In Aberdeen/Shire

Thanks all for the replies and offers! I've kinda ran out of time to do anything with it now (away this week hopefully!), plus its currently a non-runner so would have to trailer it. I could be away for 3 months (maybe more) so don't want to put anyone out. Its been washed, has a dehumidifier pack i...

It's only 100kgs heavier, the evora isnt that light!
I thought it was nearer 200kg (~1380kg vs. ~1570kg), but its all dependant how its set-up and feels of course!

Re: The evora replacement

I figured that was the case.. The M2 is a chunk heavier than a NA Evora, but that powertrain will haul, so not surprising!

Re: The evora replacement

Nice. Did you not get a 214d badge for it..? How would you rate the on road performance against an Evora NA? My old M135i was quite a rapid thing (its claimed 315bhp being per particularly pessimistic I feel..) once it found traction, and wondered if an Evora NA might feel a touch lacking in straigh...

Car Storage In Aberdeen/Shire

Does anyone know of somewhere decent for relative short term vehicle storage of my Lego Elise?

It would be for 2-3 months.. I might just put the multi-layer cover on, pump up the tyres a bit, and leave one of those anti-moisture things in the interior.. It wont die this way I suppose.

Re: Dreaded Clutch Problem (Sport350)

Also a bit of a let-off for the original dealer. I doubt it, Finance company will likely seek to reclaim its losses. Dealer probably THINKs its off the hook, but I doubt they are. Quite rightly so. Would be good if they ultimately have to pay for someone else to fix it (at full rates) when it would...

Re: New car with a Honda engine... err, it's a Honda

I have zero taste like some of the others, so couldn't deal with this particular Honda, although where as before I would typically have written off most 'FWD hot hatches' as inferior to most 'sports cars' in term of both performance and true sportiness (couldn't think of another word, sorry), since ...
