Hi guys,

My name is Alex and I live in Norway.

I'm new in here and thought I should introduce myself and make a thread about my car.

First thing first - Sorry for my poor English. I think it is better than our rally driver Petter Solberg in his glory days when he drove for Subaru, but this is a forum so it is up to you guys to judge, hehe.

The plan was always to buy an Exige, but eventually I thought I would start with an Elise.

The goal was to buy an Elise with a K series engine and then swap to a Honda K20.

No matter how much I watched an Elise, I felt more and more determined that Exige was the way to go.

The plan was to buy a car in 2022, but when I came across this Exige I ended up with this one.

I bought in June 2021 a 2005 Exige NA (Stock, nothing as been done with it) that had only driven 12,488 km / 7,760 Miles.

The car started its life in Germany from 2005 to 2007 when it was imported to Norway, Bergen.

In 2018 it was bought by the owner who I bought from.

All of the documentation on what has been done with the car is available and I even got the tires that the car was delivered with from the factory.

I will modify the car when I drive on the track, but this year I will most likely get to know the car.

But one thing is for sure: This one is going to be NATURAL ASPIRATED

More to come!

Upgrade list:

- Powerflex yellow engine mount
- Triple pass radiator
- Spal fans upgrade
- Tow hook in gold
- Smaller rear-view mirror

Lovely car, thats very, very low milage.
Have you replaced the tyres, as the originals will be out of date now.

Keep us updated with any modifications.

Thanks!

It should have been more specific. The car has new tires (April 2021), but he gave me the old tires for “collect value”.
