I know it's never safe to assume, but I don't think there is a spare tire on the evora... someone correct me if I'm wrong.

However, when it comes time to replace the tires - did my car come with a key for these lugnuts?

And where might I get a replacement for this beat up hose?

Thanks!

Correct. All you get is a can of fix-a-flat in the trunk on the passenger side.

The key should be in a small black pouch in the net of the trunk, along with the tow hook.

The dealer can replace the hose under warranty.:tadts:

Thanks CDN! I'll check for the black pouch and I think I'm under warranty yet, so we will see later this year... but if I'm not under warranty on that, where would I go?

Have the same issue as below, dealer has ordered a new hose.

re: fix-a-flat, I used mine up. How can I get a replacement? The brand is not available in the US.

Everyone has had or will have this hose issue... :)

Why even bother with replacing it with a stock one when it's just flake up again after a few thousand miles. Better to use something different or apply heat wrap over it, which is what I did.

Perfect! I'm getting a little extra to use on my truck exhaust too!

I don't see other colors - who makes them?

I replaced with a different brand, just make sure it's the TPS safe one, and the real TPS safe one (some say TPS safe, but will still kill your sensors). According to my tire guy, it has to be the white foam type.

There are different brands but they pretty much all do the same thing and are heat resistant to 2000 degrees... I've seem them come in white, gray, red and black. Just do a Amazon or Google search.

BTW-- 15' would be enough for say a straight pipe and this vent hose. But you'd need three times as much for a complete exhaust wrap.

What term would I search for? I hate to be a leach, but honestly,,, I don't know what search for. Everything I typed in only gave me black wrap, and I want white or red! :)

Hmmmmm

Have you tried the following?

"Red exhaust wrap"
"White exhaust wrap"
"Blue exhaust wrap"
"Orange exhaust wrap"
"Silver exhaust wrap"
"Yellow exhaust wrap"
"Tan exhaust wrap"
"Purple exhaust wrap"


(Hint all of these exist and will yield results for you on Amazon)

JEGS makes a nice one in Fanta orange too.
