Im new here. Recently, while I was looking what cars were up for sale on ebay(US), I came accross lotus cars. I had known that brand for playing a lot of video games with them on it (Mind you im 18 and since I live in Canada grand touring cups are not common at all).
At first I liked how the elise looked. But the more I kept looking at them I found they look a little bit girly. The specs are still awesome. But it all enlightened when I saw an Exige.
It looks awesome. So awesome that I want to buy one. Judging by how those cars are rare in Canada, It’d be almost impossible to drive one before I purchase one. It has everything I look in a car : Awesome Handling and very good acceleration.
I have a few questions before I might pull de trigger (there is 1 lotus dealer in Montreal, John Scotti, so I will have to order from him i guess…).
Right now I have a 2006 Mazda 3 sport Hatchback GT. This is my first car, it drives well, but since its automatic I’m not feeling im getting a real sportive driving experience, even using the semi-automatic mode.
I know the S2 Exige is good for tracks, but let’s say im the kind of guy who likes to do street races and pump up the musics in downtown streets.
Is the Exige handling really good (when you do street speeding) ? (i guess its an easy one)
Is the sound system good and where are the speakers located?
Is manual the only way that the transmission is (not that this is a problem, but there is a lot of traffic in montreal)?
Is the ignition by a button (I would love if it was)?
Do you recommend the Super Touring pack ( I want at least the Touring pack)?
Thank you very much for your time.
