    S2 Exige vs Elise 111S

    I keep thinking about this. What repeats is how the s2 Exige looks. It's a fantastic looking thing. Who wouldn't want one in their garage?

    AD08R Vā€™s ZZS

    I haven't tried either, but worry that running 205s on the front might upset the balance and make the steering a bit heavy? Is this not so?

    S2 Exige vs Elise 111S

    Dunc prefers a brake servo but don't read too much in to that as he's got very skinny, feeble legs šŸ™‚

    S2 Exige vs Elise 111S

    I know Simon's blue Exige. It's a very nice, straight, un-molested car.

    Which elise to go for?

    Paul Matty have a 135 R up for sale - I've just seen it on pistonheads. It's Ā£26,750 mind.

    Which elise to go for?

    I don't think you should worry about reliability and age with an elise. It sounds like the 135R is the car for you.

    Which elise to go for?

    I agree with Jonathan above. I would recommend an s2 111S. The k series is very reliable except for the head gasket - and if that has already gone and a new type gasket is fitted they usually don't go again. If they do, it's about Ā£700 to fix properly so not a ridiculous amount. The 111S has also started to appreciate slightly and so is a fairly safe investment. I particularly like the k series cars because they are 100 kilos (ish) lighter than the Toyota cars and don't have a brake servo so pedal feel is better. They are a purer expression of the elise concept and history will judge them well i reckon. I also like the supercharged cars but they are probably out of your price range. There is a nice blue 111S for sale at a garage in Louth by the way. Happy hunting!

    Best aftermarket steering rack

    I'm not sure of the answer tbh but I need a new rack so will watch the replies with interest!
  14. What was the ice driving holiday like Jonny? I've read about it and it sounds awesome
  15. I have some suede low top omp racing boots that are black and pretty low key. I like the suede because they are soft and don't mark up the aluminium tub.
