I've only had my Evora since the end of last June & still consider myself a newbie. Since then I've noticed a lot of other new owners of the Evora (whether brand new or new to them) here on LT. So please post up if you've had yours for a year or less, including those of you who are on your 2nd Evora.

Side note: This is my daily driver & I just hit 10k miles last week & wanted to say that this has been a great car for daily use. Any reliability issues have been very minor & easily resolved on my own thus far. None of the issues have been out of the ordinary for any new car. I do have a small list compiled for work needed on my first warranty visit, but all items are minor nit-picky stuff & again not out of the ordinary. None of them affect reliability or driveability either. I wish I could've said the same for other cars I've owned. Our BMW required a new cylinder head within 3k miles, & our Audis...well...just needed lots of TLC throughout their lifetimes. If you have an Audi & are not mechanically inclined you will soon be called "broke." You do not own an Audi, you merely support it. ;) That said, I loved my Audis. It was a constant love/hate relationship...kinda like dating a psychotic supermodel. :D

Ah, looks like I made the cut. First Evora was an n/a 2011 (press car with 10K miles) that I bought in 10/2012 but in 4/2013, I traded it in for a new 2011 S.

I also got my white MY12 NA IPS last June :) It's my daily driver and only car. I've put 9000 miles on it already! It was my dream car and an achievement unlocked.

I want to be new again but am waiting for insurance money and the right car/price to get back in. Some NEW 2011s just coming into port right now and offering 2 year warranty. 2 dealers I know of are getting 3 of them each. Keep your eyes open in the next few weeks. s/b $57-60.

I have quietly been reading so far. haven't had anything to add to the conversation.

I'm finally going to pick up my 2011 Evora S on thursday :) It has a MY11 serial number but all the improvements of the MY12. i'm not sure what to make of it, but i'm definitely not complaining!

Arrived last Saturday. Used but really new 2011 S with 575 miles. Not what I expected after driving an Elise SC since last April. Pleasantly surprised :)

Bought my MY 12 IPS in Sept 2013 with 212 miles on it. I'm at 3750 now and climbing fast.

I had my Elise for 6.5 years and loved it. That was BY FAR the longest i ever held onto a car. I have a feeling the Evora will break that.

Happy Driving!:shift:
