I am looking at 3 second hand Evoras at the moment after selling my Elise.

What are the thoughts on the various packs? One has Tech/Premium/Sports; another has Sports and Tech; the other has just Sports.

Any thoughts on must haves?

thanks

Depends on the amount of toys you want biggrin

I have all of them on mine and TBH none of them would be essential - helpful, nut not essential

This is mostly a personal choice.

I have the tech pack, sport pack and reversing camera (not part of a pack but you need the tech pack for the double din stereo to see the image.
Suits me fine.

I think the sport pack is a must, I think it will be tricky to sell without it. And the sports button does make a difference to the feel of the car when in the mood - (most of the time),

For me the tech pack was important as I wanted the upgraded stereo with BT, GPS, half decent speakers and a sub. But what is really essential for me is the additional reversing pack as you can see s0d all out the back window.

The premium pack converts some of the cloth trim to leather (sills and back seats and a few other bits). Adds a couple of badges and some interior bling lighting which you rarely ever see. Nothing most of us cannot live without. I think it adds heated seats too but I have never had them so won't miss them!

There are lots of details missing here.
I think you could take a base car with sport pack and upgrade yourself, but it would cost a fair bit to add the cabling which is not always fitted like you get with mass production cars.

Thanks very much for the responses so far. I am definitely leaning towards the sports and tech packs as must haves.

All 3 here. Sport pack is a must. Tech pack is very good, especially reversing camera. Premium pack improves the interior for me. Not a fan of the cloth trim.

I haven't driven a car without the Sport pack, but if driving the non-Sport equipped car is like driving the Sport-equipped car without the Sport button pressed... it's not the best experience. The car feels so sedate without that button pressed.

I'd be fine without Premium, but the reversing camera/parking sensors really are needed.

Premium isn't as high a priority as the other two IMO. Reason being it really only made sense if you wanted the leather to be a colour other than black.

Sports pack is essential, and Tech pack is also a must have IMO. The Evora is aimed at being a GT type car.. The Nav/BT/camera/Cruise etc all make it an important option to have. Plus the non tech pack dashboard looks awful with the big gaping hole underneath the single DIN CD player
