Re: Child seat

If you fancy heading over this way Uber Kids within Demon Tweeks (Wrexham) has a good selection and is used to non family cars (ie they...

Re: Raising the exiges.com level

One strange thing I have noticed is folk read threads on here but message me elsewhere. So I get lots of questions about detailing, build thread etc, but they all come via Instagram and SELOC, but so many of them state they saw the content on Exiges.com - so I am stumped why they go to a different ...

Re: Raising the exiges.com level

Re: Collecting cars S1 Exige

It looks like it’s been beaten with sticks and a tramp died in it, then the tramp lost the keys and service history. But still made nearly £31k plus fees?

Good time to own an Exige I guess!

Re: New member in Wiltshire

Welcome 👋. Used to be from down your way, there’s a great lotus community down your way. Pop up some pics too, always good to see the cars 👍

Re: Exige Cup 260 - Restoration and Updates
