What did you do to your Evora today?

Other forums do this and it's fun and informative. The rules: Simply tell us what you did to your ride today. Modifications, fixed something or just took a drive. Post it up. Pics are welcome.

Have at it!

I hadn't driven in days. Had a family dinner, used that as an excuse to take a long drive to a nice bakery. Had the pleasure of flooring it in the tunnel

Left mine at home today. After seeing how often I'll be plopping down 800-1,200 for a new set of rear tires, I decided my girlfriend's ride to the office would need to suffice.

At detailers till tomorrow. Spent a weekend at Charleston at a nice hotel (Planters Inn) and valet parking was under some horrid resinous tree

Trip was great though. At Folly beach the parking dudes raced to put her up front at their lot. They said maybe 100 people took her picture.

All that showy stuff is fun sometimes, but the drive was nice. 4 hours in a straight line but so comfortable. And room for a couple's weekend stuff, including a cooler and beach umbrella.

Anyone can make something complicated. It takes genius to make it simple. Einstein.

Tbd, how long where you at this speed? Where you topped out or did you still have a bit left?

Drove home from work (Manhattan to NJ over GWB) through just enough traffic for 50-60 mph lane-changing fun!

Hope you enjoyed my city! I have the only Evora in Charleston that I know of. I catch about 2-3 people taking photos of the car a day haha!
