When you do pop down, I'd recommend that you get over to Salt Lake City to check out Jeff's Evora - then you could come over to Colorado to see the first Evora S in dark red metallic. :smt118

It's been a while since I've been on this site. I sure must say your car is looking GREAT! Doug must be feeling good knowing stripey's in the right hands. btw - If your still in the bay area drop me a email. I'd love to check out stripey in person.

Looking good! What flavor of tires did you get? Very aggressive tread!

They are the KDW2 205/40-17, BFGoodrich. So far, I still like them a lot. Esp how they look.

Easier on the transition from straight line into the corners as how I feel at the steering wheel seems more linear, as the car progresses into the turn. This might have something to do with their round up sidewall. The Yokohama S-Drive has stiffer side wall, hence more planted stance on the straight line. :rally:

Hi, I really like these wheels and the way they fit the wheel arches, what size are they and what offset?

Ekapol, car looks spot on. The front spoiler was it from the S2 S3 Esprit :?:
I like this option and may have to present it to the east coast.

Sorry for the late reply. They are:

http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/WheelClo ... sort=Brand

Also you might be able to find more information from this thread from a while back.
viewtopic.php?f=79&t=9344&start=140

(Page 8-9)

It might be harder to locate those wheels now. I bought the 5th one for my car a while back and it took me a while to track them down.

Yes, the front splitter is from an Esprit. I have the information in the first few pages of this thread I think. Please feel free to let me know again if you couldn't locate them.

Cheers :-)
