  1. A young kid (probably about 10ish?) shouted "shit car!" as drove slowly past in my Signature Orange 350 Sport Other than that it's always been very positive

    That's the key, if it's a bit smaller than the Evora, drives and looks great + is useable everyday I too will be extremely tempted

    I'm watching with huge interest - it's been a big part of my ridiculous indecision about buying another Exige and if it looks good I could easily be tempted to splash out.
  4. You lot! Just drive the damn thing
  5. Nothing to report from me, but many years ago one of my school friends bought a brand new Cossack 650 motorbike and sidecar - a beautiful looking thing in gloss black, twin cylinder horizontally opposed engine, same as a BMW. He drove it out of the dealership and crashed straight into a tree, smashing one of the cylinder heads clean off. The salesman walked out of the garage and helped him push it the 50 yards back into the workshop
  6. Looking good Is it fair to say that you have gelled with this Exige more than you did with the Evora then Adam?
  7. I have a pair of axle stands you can borrow, I'm near Eyam in the Peak District if that's any good?
  8. Of course I would love to do that sometime 👍
  9. You need to upgrade to a 250 Cup Elise, I will do you a massive favour and take the 410 off you in pex and I won't even ask for too much money!
  10. Nice pics as usual Scott Weather is looking ok for Sunday, chilly first thing but dry and maybe even a hint of sunshine!
  11. OH that's lovely, I'm a real fan of silver wheels I've got a 7" 2bular back box on my 250 - sounds great, I don't think it drones much but to be honest it rarely sits at 3K rpm for any length of time so I couldn't be certain. I would be very surprised if you suffered with any stone chips on the roof, not a vulnerable point IMO. Congratulations on your purchase, don't forget to save the date for Lotus in the Peak (9th, 10th, 11th July) and get it booked as soon as we release the details
  12. Pah, a single solitary biscuit is a travesty of nature and not to be entertained by any right minded person You need a packet of Lotus - nom nom nom nom
  13. many moons ago I had a newish S2 111S with only 20K miles on the clock and as you describe, the suspension was rather 'crashy'. Perfectly ok on minor ripples/bumps/undulations but sounded terrible on potholes etc. During my search for that car I drove 2 or 3 other cars (all 111S) and they all sounded the same. This was a time when they were all pretty low mileage. EDIT: Later I had a 2006 Sports Racer 111R (with Exige S2 shocks/springs) and that was slightly better but still rather crashy. No idea if you can improve matters with different shocks, all I can say is that I think the sus
  14. Ahhh, that's what we need, a happy ending Love that type 25 Cup
  15. Oh my word that is a serious impact, really sad to see but of course a relief that the driver was ok.
  16. Where's that picture come from Scott, have you seen it in the flesh? If you search Google images for 'Plum Crazy Exige' it comes up with the original photos from Oakmere - looks fantastic under their showroom lights. I think it might be the only Exige in Plum Crazy, there was a Plum Crazy Elise (Cup I think?) sold a couple of years ago and a similar colour 'Ultra Violet' Exige 380 sold by Snows about the same time. That one took ages to shift and they reduced the price over and over until it became a real bargain. Be interesting to see how long this one takes to sell, only takes one
  17. Interesting that one Scott - my eyes are sort of magnetically drawn to the bright purple but I'm not sure if I love it or hate it I went to look at a Lotus at Parkway a few years ago, a Chrome Orange 220 Elise. Looked nice but it had suffered a smack up the arse - you could see the repairs inside the boot and the paint was just slightly off. They expressed surprise when I mentioned it but I couldn't help but notice that the car was parked with the damaged corner right next to the wall making it very difficult to spot I know what you mean Ray about the Autumn Gold one, it's a perfectly r
  18. Good luck Dean, it will breeze though I bet Mine's booked in on Thursday, fingers crossed for dry roads as the drive to the MOT garage is fantastic (Nearest garage with suitable ramps, honest!)
  19. That's a great photo Scott - calendar material
  20. Hello and welcome Luke Mansfield - you are perfectly positioned to join one of our Peak District runs or Midland Tick runs, usually on a Sunday morning, usually when the weather improves, and of course when covid restrictions allow.
  21. I think the B&C one has sold to someone called Mike posting on SELOC - asked for some advice and then bought it!
  22. I've faffed about for so long that all of the good new 410 deals (and I had a couple of absolute belters available to me!) have now run out of time What with that and the gold 410 fiasco I've admitted to myself that I'm tighter than a tight thing and that I will probably have the 250 until I can no longer get in/out - which to be fair is not such a bad thing
  23. Out of those two, the B&C one seems to be a no-brainer to me. Younger, less miles, cheaper, dealer backup etc. Get it bought man, the 250 Cup is a fabulous car and that's a very nice colour EDIT: Trust me, you don't need a hard top
  24. Here we are guys, it can be ours for a bargain £67K from Syntner https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/11242411 Edit: sorry, not 67, almost £68K!
