Hi guys, as a new Exige owner I thought I would introduce myself.
I picked up an S1 Exige a couple of months ago. Always loved the looks of them and to be honest the announcement about the cease of production of Exige, Elise and Evora pushed me to buy before they become unobtainable
This car had been owned previously by an MLOC/SELOC member for a good few years and a pre inspection by MSC concluded that it was worth a buy even though a few small things need doing.
I am not new to the world of Lotus. I bought my 1st new Elise back in 2003 and since then have owned a 111R, Evora and S1 Elise before a 3 year break and then the S1 Exige.
Luckily I know quite a few local owners so get to run out with like minded guys and even when owning my Zenos they let me join in.....(2nd cousin maybe?).
2003 Elise S
2005 Elise 111R
2011 Evora S
1998 Elise S1
2017 Zenos E10S
2000 Exige S1
I also run a McLaren 570S which is basically how I imagine the new Esprit to have been like if it had ever been built. It really does have a lot of Lotus DNA in it.
New kid in town ? Say hello to the Exiges.com massive.. Do you have an Exige ? Looking to buy one ? Sold one or just a fan ?

Hi John, not a day goes by without me regretting selling your old Elise. Such a great car but I went in search of power in the Zenos. Done that now and realise there is a lot more to a good drive than just acceleration.
Same, I regret selling her as well. Should have stored her at my parents and hung on to it.Adesmith wrote: ↑Tue Apr 27, 2021 10:46 pmHi John, not a day goes by without me regretting selling your old Elise.

The Exige will be far better than the Zenos
