Just wondered if anyone has done this? There was one bloke off SELOC who posted the infamous “do i not like orange thread” who traded his Chrome Orange V6 in for an Elise 220 Cup from Murrays. As far as i know its just him and me. I bought a lovely race & Premium Sport pack V6 from Redline in June this year. Loved it for a short while…then thought.
I get the extra power is nice in a straight line. The torque is great low down, you do notice it. However, then i kind of got used to the car. The interior was/is identical to the previous S240, S260, S220 i have owned and i thought, the extra cash you have to pay to get one plus the ongoing costs are quite a lot, is it worth it???
I have to say, that to some with upgradyitis, its the way to go, to me, i am happy to be back in a well sorted S260 with all the good bits in the car. There was so much i wanted to change in the V6, it would have made the whole experience too expensive.
Don’t get me wrong, i can afford either option, it wasn’t money that drove the decision. it was value and i feel a lot better in the S260.
