  1. George. LOVE your old one. And totally agree with your point about being able to give it full beans but stay at relatively sane speeds. That's why I love my little Clio so much. It's pitched just right for the road. Can give it all it's got but it's not too much. The 620R on the other hand... it's just immense! And I think the yellow / black combo looks fantastic on it. But then you already know that... Noticed the location upgrade on your user info, hope the move went well and that it all works out for you. Can't be a bad live upgrade! (This is Mes by the way!)
  2. What a great photo. They do look so good in yellow.
  3. Gorgeous car, amazing colour. Glad you're happy. I would be too!
  4. Saw this in B&C and I follow you on IG. Wonderful car!
  5. Worthless??? Imran, it's one of the best around in my opinion! Balls to resale considerations, all about the enjoyment while you have it. Good to see you've found a road set up you're happy with. Great photos, car looks absolutely stunning now.
  6. @alias23 @Kristof Thys Thanks for the responses guys. Imran, this is so I can give Bren the specs I want! Kristof, yes they're not the best looking things are they? But it's the concave at the rear I'm most interested in. This is actually for me to spec some BC Forged but of all the ones I've seen on a Lotus, none of them seem to have a rear concave anything near the NAYA wheels above so I was hoping I could replicate it. And yes, I understand the issue of the centre drop on the front but honestly, it doesn't bother me at all. I saw that image you posted of Carsten's car previously and it looks great but at those specs (10 x ET35) all the others I've seen the concave looks really minimal. Of course it's possible the NAYA wheels I posted above are the same specs and the design of the wheel (the do seem to sit quite proud of the tyres) is accentuating the concave. Worst comes to the worst, I'll just spec ET35 but if I can get a better concave rear I'd definitely want to!
  7. Brij, Just to add my voice here, although I own an Exige for me there would have to be a very good reason to get rid of your awesome JC T25! It's STUNNING. I guess for me the biggest deciding factor would be what sort of driving experience you're after? If it's predominantly a road car, I'd stick with the Elise for sure. As addictive as the extra power is in the Exige, really it's too quick for the road so the experience is much more teasing it down the road rather than grabbing it by the scruff of the neck and giving it full beans. I know what I prefer in that scenario for certain and it would be your Elise. Everything you've said makes me think that unless you're tracking it a lot, you love the T25 too much to get rid of it and once the novelty of the extra grunt of the Exige had worn off you may end up regretting it. Plus you could always find another Exige but finding another mint factory original T25 would be a much more difficult task. I know how you feel, I've had a similar dilemma recently.
  8. Hi guys, This is a bit of a long shot but I figured it was worth a try. I've seen this image of a V6 Cup on Naya Wheels (a Malaysian company I believe?) and I REALLY like the look of the concave they have at the rear (not too fussed about the design of the wheels). As I'm very close to making an order for some new wheels I was hoping to replicate the specs of the Naya ones in the photo but I really can't find the details anywhere. All the aftermarket wheels I've seen on the S3 Exige have had very minimal concave but I love the look so was hoping to maximise it as much as possible. Obviously I've tried emailing the company but I'm guessing their English isn't good enough to deal with my request for info. I've also spoken to the owner of the car but all he could tell me is that the fronts were 17" and the rears were 18"... Of course I knew that already! So yes, a very long shot, but would anyone know what the specs are? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers. Mes.
  9. Mate, it's SOOOOOO good. Jealous. Definitely made the right decision. Hope you're happy as a pig in poo.
  10. @Kimbers Dear sir, I'll gladly collect it for you. Not joking. And deliver it to an address of your choice. Just shout!
  11. George, I like them all! I guess it's all about context though. I really like option 3 as it reminds me of the earlier Exiges. I also think definitely option 3 if you're painting the engine cover, can't remember what you said there. But it also depends on everything else you plan to do. If you're also doing splitter, side skirts and canards then my choice would be 2. Maybe with the full width lip of the spoiler at the back left in exposed carbon? It's going to look fantastic whatever you do.
  12. Kimbers, that's a BEAUTY! Glad it's gone to a good home. Nice looking (possible) CS to the side of it too!
  13. Side skirts and rear winglets making a welcome return. (For me at least!) But of course it's just a render so could be completely different in the flesh. Looks FANTASTIC in that colour!
