As I was washing it, I notice a bit if weatherstrip peeking out from just behind the front wheel. Investigating with my fingers loosed it completely, and it came off in my hand. Using the other side as a guide, I ended up re-attaching it to the wheel well lining with a bit of gorilla glue.

Nice shot, sir. Is it just me or does the old persian blue appear identical to the new laser blue? I could swear I'm looking at my car in the photo.

Thank you. I think the Persian blue is a little darker with more violet undertones than laser blue. And I'm not a sir.

Just saw this photo on Instagram. Can you share the details of the wheels? This is one of the few Evoras with aftermarket wheels...

Sense that are the PB parts, google pbracing.it KomTec also has them, so maybe KoldFire can help?!

What i did today - curbed the right rear wheel, Ouch. Cornered too close on the way home and the street/curb edge was metal, ripped up the wheel bigtime, looks bad.

VSA still doesn't have the TD 1.3's in stock either

Guess I'll be ordering a new wheel, and not treating street corners like cones lol.

Anyone want a pic?

Drove mine down to St. Petersburg and back after work, winding around various urban streets. Got aggressive on a few of them, very aggressive. Of course, it's a Lotus. This car is just as wickedly fast as it is a b*tch deep in turns. I've never owned a car like it.

Get it redone. Did that with mine Diamond Cut rims, not easy and you need a top shop, but those who do 2 coloured Porsche rims will also do the Diamond Cut. Came at $200 per rim much cheaper than buying new and you can't tell any difference.

I'll find out the price on Monday, the damage is pretty bad but still holds air.
Dealer is going to check into a repair too.

It's tempting to just buy a pair of 18" for the rears and skip the TD 1.3's.

Just drove it to work today, but Tuesday I added the CF side scoops & had my exhaust installed by a shop due to some required modifications to make it fit. DIY was a no-go. All in all side scoops look good & exhaust sounds good.
