No plans for any upgrades, no doubt I will though once they come more available..

Nice choice! What spec? Did you go for the S?

Yes, ordered the S. 2+2, Chrome Orange, interiour with Suede Tex. Loaded (Sports, Premium Pack), 19/20" rims. Delivery should be in about 3-4 weeks.

3-4 weeks for delivery - from a client spec order - or did you order it some time ago?

Ordered by the end of last year, but delivery has been delayed because Suede Tex wasn't available ...
The car should be built next week.

@Squiddy, isn't that the diffusor of the "S"?

I don't think it is, looks aftermarket?

I'm going to try the black roof/mirrors when I next get it serviced

So does the aero thing at the back. May be wrong though.

Yeah, it's an aftermarket diffuser by Difflow. I negotiated a fair price for it instead of the outrageous asking price... The only problem is it actually adds a bit of weight the car frown. Bought it mainly for looks, and have the original diffuser in storage when I sell the car. Supposedly it produces more downforce, but in all honesty, I've seen no noticeable impact. I guess you'd have to track the car to make real use of it.

Good read and some really good photos there. Thks.

Justin - I think yours is the only Evora I have actually seen on the road, in / around Aberdeen,
which has really surprised me.

I went past your car in my Boxster last weekend near Ardoe. You were pulling out so got a good
look. Very very striking.

I had a good test drive a while back when they had a couple up at Crathes, and it felt just superb over
the slug road to Stonehaven and back.

Cheers.

I hope this one will be the right one, and normally finished...

Congrats for your incredible award - winning brilliance, how many hours spent you ? Great job!
That's my "faible" too, and I must overcome my fears to drive it when it's so perfect...

I wish you never post that, because I took the resolution to drive the Evora independantly of the weather conditions, but now I'm falling back! yuck
