found it, mine is 261!

These numbers mean so much to me:

2 is the number of ears that I have
6 is the number of girls i slept with simultaneously in my dreams
1 is the number of Lotuses that I own

Welcome.. stunning Exige 👍

I’m concerned by your calculation as mine is 501, which leaves my dream girl scenario a little empty..

You mentioned the Larini exhaust not being correct is that because you wanted an original exhaust?

ahah I think in your case it was 10 girls, hence the 0.

I have a Larini for an Elise, not an Exige.
I can tell that because the tip of the muffler is receded into the rear clam. The proper Exige exhausts do stick out more to avoid "burns".

I also can say that because it was on the invoice that it was for the Elise 8-) :lol:

Haha well that’s pretty definitive as evidence. I was interested as my last Exige had a Larini exhaust and I thought it very good 👍

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
