Decision Made! (Ep3)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

After weeks of deliberating should I keep or sell the Exige, I've plumped to part with it in a couple weeks. A pic of the imminent arrival.

We're in Milton. You?

Thanks - Its a GT410 Sport (+2). I think it is fully spec'd (though with Lotus you never know!)

Great choice of car, I would say that lol, It’s a stunner and happy you finally got sorted. Hope to see you out on a run in the near future. 👍

Congratulations, it looks stunning.

We'll have to create a GT410 Sport sub-forum at this rate 😄

Thanks all and I look forward to joining a run too. With two girls rather than 1... the eldest is still upset she missed out on the run a few weeks ago.

Ahhh I know where you are? No surprise as I am in Endon and regularly head up to light oaks from Milton lights. Will slow down and say hi if I see you polishing over next couple of weeks 😉

Is your exige black? With a Stoke plate?

Do say hi... who knows what I will be polishing!

Ah!! So the Evora purchase is off.... 😟  At least I can vent to a smaller audience on here!

The condition was so disappointing! In fact really really disappointing. Some of the below will seem rather fussy, but it needs the context of price and the fact the car is less than 11 months old.

- Passenger door lock faulty unwilling to consistently unlock

- Both rear lights suffering from water ingress

- Both rear disc bells suffering from corrosion

- Windscreen seal incorrectly seated

- Air bag cover on dash deformed

- Rear Clam over cut around number plate insert with polishing compound to point that the paint was worn through to undercoat. Will require respraying.

- Front number plater attached with bolt head self tappers, easily fixed, but gives the general feel!

- A couple of minor paint defects in the rear clam around the air intakes... I'd probably have let these go.

 

Condition wise, it was described as virtually new, a couple of stone chips:

- More than a couple of stone chips to the front. Far too many to now PPF.

- Drivers seat bolster showing a decent amount of wear.

- Drivers carbon sill significant scratched

- It also had polish debris in every edge, surrounding the graphics, vent areas, stone chip protection, black pack etc. 

 

Overall it felt very unloved. Colour and spec amazing and it drove beautifully.

You must be pretty disappointed by that - I know I would be - but you’re making the right decision and there will be plenty of others 👍🏻
 

For what it’s worth I’d be tempted to keep the Exige, it’s unique and I thought it was stunning when we did the Peaks run a few weeks ago.

Really gutted Dave and thanks for the kind comments.

Currently thinking of a shopping list for the Exige. New Lotus Dash, 2bular... etc.

One of the reasons for changing is that both my girls want to come out at the same time. The Evora ticks that box and not so easy to resolve with the Exige.

As a family we had a nice afternoon out in Henley (weather much better than up north), so all not lost!
