  1. I had the same s2 as you before, if you want to apply a plastic protection, repaint, I have done myself a paint correction, but they never sitcks, if you use a polish machine on it, the paint won't stick. I have tried again on my current s3, but again, when I took the polish machine last time, all the correction were wasted ... so respray and then armourfend ...
  2. Great !!!! Still in the same area ?
  3. I had a blast again my friend in his m135i this week end, that car is ridiculously capable against my v6 Exige .. Makes you reconsider your dailuy drive but also the week end toy somehow... Those hatchback get superquick, my megane rs was not far from being as fast as my old exige s260 in straights ...
  4. Hello ! I am now driving a v6 since last year, I ahve not done any track day, but the drive I have had so far on b road was enough to notice the understeer again ... specially mid corner. I was wondering, can we fit the 380 tyres on the regular v6 wheels ? I will go through a full geo also, but why not doing it with new tyres .. Also to v6 owners, is it worth to go to nitron suspension ? I know on the s2 it made a huge difference, is it still the case ? and specially on roads.

  6. Just to indicate price wise http://lotusapprovedusedcars.co.uk/car/detail/1215521383/EXIGE-S/Exige-V6-S-Premium-Race-Pack
  7. Nice !
  8. I remember a year ago a 20k+ miles exige s3, sold for 39/40k, but privately, and if you have one year of warrantly, that's an other extra, the only other car you can compare with is a 2013 S3, 18k miles, adverted for 41k as well.
  9. So he was 67 (white elan) on this video, can not imagine myself this at this age ..
  10. I hope it is better than seloc, kind of disapointed ..
  11. My cover, please save me one while I snig up
  12. Yes, exactly why I was not really much into the porsche they are everywhere, truly they are great, but still not as involving as the Exige, no comparison there ... I actually only went to drive the vantage, and was very disappointed, very linear, not much sound inside the cabin, and let's face it, on the road they are just jelly ... But important to precise, I only tested a V8, I am know the v8s, and specially v12 are way way better. But you come from a Lotus, the Aston is a big jump. The 997 c2s had all the sport options also ..
  13. I test drove one (v8) before going for the v6, and a carrera 2s gen2, the aston was the worst, looks good, but that is the only good thing about it ...
  14. The v6 would be a good solution with advantages from the lotus and the honda, bigger, more progressive .. v6 grunt
  15. a hell of a car, the best le mans looking car around
