DBG Yeah, they bolt onto the bottom part, but still leave the original parking sensors, which is the bit I donít like. All good, Iíve learn to live with it. Believe itís a big job to fit the S setup (with the neater sensors) to the NA.

Difflow makes 2 models for our cars. Both are direct bolt-ons, no modifications to parking sensors needed.

Ryan_G I just got back from Miatas at the gap with my Evora 400. It was a blast. Our group did about 700 miles of mountain road runs all around the area.

Some video of my car from my buddy's turbo Miata.

The car performed flawlessly and all the Miata guys really liked it.

Likuid Went to Cars & Coffee at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan, USA. Never been there before. An amazing place. I would suggest anyone visiting west Michigan who likes cars to visit.

agentdr8 Today I tried in vain (ignore the hot water stains) to undo the wrong that was done to my girl. I really am disappointed in the dregs of society, but I suppose it is their lot in life.

Luckily the Xpel did its job, although since the asshat responsible decided to start at the access cover, I pretty much have to get the whole front end redone. To top it all off, my dash cam did not pick up the motion or movement, so it's getting replaced with something that can actually provide tangible evidence.

In the UK you can park in an empty stadium car park and come back and there will be some earole parked up close enough to stop you opening your door.

MGB Technically it was Thursday and not today, but I finished the AC condenser job! I'm going to make a thread on it with a picture of each step, including some lessons learned.

Intern8tion9l Got the fluid swap completed; kept bleeding and bleeding until the pedal came back. Still makes the noise, but everything seems to be operating normally. While I had the wheels off I decided to wrap the front markers with some vinyl tint. Came out ok.

Costco is one of the few shopping runs I am comfortable to do with the Evora. They have decently sized parking slots that reduce the probability of dings to an acceptable risk level. Never put refrigerated products or luggage that includes your wife's make up kit in the boot. Wives hate it when the lipstick melts, you'll hate it when the Haagen Dazs goes limp. It is acceptable to transport pre cooked chickens, pizza, BBQ and other foods that must be kept hot in what the English call the boot. Here we identify it as a cleverly designed kitchen appliance. We are two peoples separated by a common language. What they call the boot is actually an oven.

Intern8tion9l Finally went for the clutch and brake fluid change today. Everything seemed to be going fairly smoothly until I thought I was done and the clutch pedal dropped straight to the floor. I did everything according to what Iíve read(using Motiv pressure bleeder), so I donít know wtf the problem is. Iíve gotten some pedal back but it still doesnít feel quite right and the slave cylinder is making a creaking sound when the pedal is pressed that it wasnít making before.

1000 mile checkup

Drove 225 miles (each way) for the 1000 mile checkup. All went well. Its now a month old.

During the trip drove through torrential rain - could feel a small bit of hydro plaining on the OH Turnpike a few times. Glad I applied RainEx prior to the trip. Never needed wipers.

Averaged 24.8 MPG for the 482 total miles. Gave it a much needed bath - looks like new again.

georgiadawgs98 Went to see the 2020 Evora GT and parked my red 400 next to it. The GT looks fantastic with all that CF and the nicer interior.
