Potential New Owner - What To Get?
Posted 15 March 2013 - 08:04 AM
One of them's a standard red colour, which i like a lot. The other is a Club Racer, with the powder blue/black stripe thing going on. As a car my preference is with the CR (it's got better stuff, uprated injectors etc...) but i'm just a little worried about the colour scheme, it's quite stand-outish, as a daily driver is it a bit too pretentious? It's fairly loud as well, so i'm trying to imagine myself pulling into a supermarket carpark in it and not feeling like a bit of a dick I live in Grantham, which isn't the country's most affluent town to begin with...
Am i over-thinking this? What would you do?

It's an exige, it's meant to be stand outish!!!! Red is hardly a shrinking violet, and I think the blue of the CR looks simply stunning....you would be carefull wherever you park it, I think we all are. I think you are looking into it too much. People tend to be more appreciative of a lotus I find. If you've got some links to the cars in question, put them up.
Edeson has a CR and lives in leceister!!! ( fish says that needs bombing).... Lol.
Get it bought!!!!!!:-)

The red Exige is at Lawton Brook, the CR is at JCT Leeds, although i don't think they've got photos of it up yet (i've test driven them both)

Don't know about an exige as I drive an elise but I find most people out there love them
Get it!! you know you want to

Not test driven this one, but assume it'll be similar to the CR in performance with those upgrades. Mileage is low, too

I'm the teeniest bit worried about how loud some of the Exiges are, the one at LawtonBrook was deafeningly loud (in a good way) but i think if i ever drove it for more than 30 minutes my brains would start to come out of my ears. The CR i tried had a good compromise

I may be biased, blind or both, but I've driven my Elise through the city centre on numerous occasions and it stands out being Lava Orange (you think Chrome Orange is bright!) and I've never thought people were looking at me thinking 'show off'. Maybe because its English and has that magical yellow & green badge on it, I'm sure people stare in admiration rather than the disdain that I think you get with a porker on dancing donkey.
Lets face it, an Elise if far more affordable for most of the popoulation and I've never encountered a hooray driving one so what's there to dislike. Alot of peolple can admire them and aspire to own one, rather than taking an instant dislike because they are way way out of their price range and they have an arse driving them .
Go for the CR - that sky blue is a top colour.
