  1. All helps with the man maths when justifying the car!
  2. Where as I have an Exige Sport 350 IPS registered in March 18 so it costs the same as @C8RKH’s car. However by the time our cars are 6 years of age they drop to lower value car tax band, currently £155 but goes up every April. Cars registered between March 2001 & End of March 2017 are taxed on the emissions band that they are in & stay that way until the end of their life currently. Cars registered April 2017 on pay a tax based on the cars emission upon first registration & then for the next 5 years if they cost more than £40k new an extra £335 on top of the base £155 & t
  3. @Davey D So is Olive Green a metallic or solid colour? I looked at the Olive Green 410 that Sytner had early last year, got offered a reasonable amount to change but went away to check the spec of the car, as they didn’t know anything. And think about the colour as at the time I wasn’t sure, anyway took too long & some one beat me to it.
  4. 😮 Which dealer was that? Have they not noticed how many cars are driving around with both? 😎
  5. 😀 Messaged @alias23 with same theory when he first mentioned selling 🤔
  6. Not quite the same but just a thought. I bought an Exige V6 Club Racer originally without the Sound insulation/Carpets, stereo etc. had a quick test drive of the car in London & liked the idea of weight saving in a Lotus as I was told that it was like a Cup! Reality - Car prep wasn’t good by the supplying Lotus dealer, so had misgivings & then noticed the road noise, on the trip home to Gloucestershire, final nail was a road trip to Europe with my other half only a few months later mixture of engine noise & road noise. Car was traded in against a new Sport 350 with most of the o

    Lotus Type 116

    I’m on my second V6! After keeping the VXR220 for over 12 years with no thoughts of changing it, I bought a yellow Exige V6. Within a year I’d swapped for the car I’ve got now, much happier now & have owned this one for 3 years next month
  8. Snows when they were a dealer, had a silver 410 pre-reg without the black pack, chap that bought it either posted some pictures on here or the V6 Facebook page a few months ago
  9. There’s a four year old Exige S V6 in yellow for sale on Pistonheads, that should help you. Sorry, I can’t do links.
  10. Yes love the Triumphs now that they are doing retro like only they can, I had a green Speed Triple 1050 10 odd years ago. Viper Green 3-11 430 belongs to a more mature Lotus owner & ex-Ducati club racer & he’s still got the bike! Something close to 40 years of ownership. Yellow 3-11 is lovely too, both seem to attract quite a bit of attention
  11. My Orange Exige Sport 350 doing it’s best at a rest point on the run mentioned above, Viper Green is lovely but so common...
  12. Much the same as above, dropped my nephew off at a KFC birthday party & the car emptied the restaurant, my current favourite though is out on a drive with a friend, I pull up at the lights at the bottom of the hill in Burford & can see that my Orange Exige is causing a stir, just as my accomplice pulls up behind me in his Viper Green 3-11 430, I lost’my crowd’instantly & felt like I’d just vanished...
  13. Jay, Tom’s replied to the message that I sent him, yes it was them & Tom has just moved to Pencoed. If you want to message me your mobile I can ask for you to be added to the group
  14. That’s got to be the father & son pairing from the Bridgend area (Ken’s Espirt & Tom’s Exige V6), I’m in a South Wales WhatsApp group & there was a run today, starting near junction 26 M4 & finishing in Chepstow. As I’m 15 miles from the border 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 & in lockdown I can only look at the pictures...
