I'm giving serious thought to selling my XFR and getting a weekend / evening car like the Exige S2 S.
I know very little about Lotus cars and i'm just trying to learn. I had a preconception that an Exige might be a temperamental, troublesome quite costly but rewarding ride.
So far i've gathered it actually isn't too bad to run
Insurance about 300
Tyres 600 but probably not yearly
Brakes about 500
I'm likely to do about 5k or less per year, fuel isn't an issue.
I'm doing this because i want something more hardcore, lightweight and nimbler than my XFR.
What is the Exige like to live with? Quirks, reliability, things to look out for would be much appreciated.
I'm thinking i need a Exige S PP from around 2006-2007 for my budget. I'm not usually a fan of seriously modded cars. I just would like to know what i should look at for and if i have underestimated the mechanical bills and reliability. I don't fancy something that will let me down and spend time in the garage.
