unfortunately I have an entire new upper dash, airbag and access cover on order under warranty...hopefully since it's a new make with the "new leather supplier" it won't have any more issues.

A few photos comparing my Evora to my mate's mid-eighties 911:





The width difference is considerable!

From the weekend in the DFW area:









And before the other Evoras arrived there was an Elise just hanging out.

Jealous of all that British car action going on there in DFW (Land Rover included). Looks like a fun day. Always striking to see how small the Elise/Exige is next to the Evora.

It was fun - it was also nice to hear the Stage 2 exhaust as compared to mine.

I actually prefer the look without the diffuser I think.

I also like the OEM diffuser on my Elise (like the Elise in that last photo). The contrast of the aluminum with the bodywork looks great in my opinion.

I'd love to hear your evaluation/comparison of the two. We're you able to take a ride and hear the sports exhaust from the inside as well?

Hey Folks, anyone have pics of a Phantom Black? The few pics I've found on the web seem to hide the curvy shapes of the Evora... Also, what's the difference between starlight and phantom (reflect?)

Here are some pics of my Phantom Black:

From what I can tell, Starlight Black has tiny metallic flecks in the paint, whereas Phantom Black is a pure black.
