Thanks! Found it last summer in the south of France, it has maintenance receipts for the past 10 years for maintenance mainly, distribution updated 4000kms ago and 2 years ago, they also did the head at that time.
Since I got it I replaced all 4 rotors and pads, spark plugs, radiator and hoses, cooling fan (preventative) and did the fluids.
The ridiculous thing is that I have not driven it yet! A friend of mine tested it last year for me and apparently it was running fine that time.
Lift the “bonnet” and its the last three digits on the long VIN number on the sticker mounted to the right as you look at the car from the front (at least on right hand drive cars it is). With LHD it might be on the left as you look at the car from the front?
I have never driven an Exige. how do they drive? Are they snappy? Momentum car?
I have had mid engine cars before (NSX, Gated 360 Modena) but I am wondering if the Exige has its own “style” of driving.
Sorry, I am having to recur to my imagination given I cannot drive the car yet!
Its all about the setup really. I drive a s2 so it will be a little different I am sure but for me the geo is key. You can have it set to understeer, netural or be a little tail happy. I have mine set to be neutral unless provoked.
The end will wiggle but there is certainly a point of no return. You get a feel for that.
The limits of the car are far beyond what I can achieve but I have done a fair few trackdays in the car and am learning everytime whilst becoming slightly more aware of the cars characteristics
