  1. Fire red is blooming awesome Pics don’t do it justice either beautiful in the flesh
  2. Cheers it really is flipping awesome I’m totally made up with it. 😍 10th feb I placed my deposit . But hadn’t confirmed the spec for a few weeks after that.
  3. Love the look of the new car and was obviously interested in what they came up with but as soon as it came out I knew I’d done the right thing for me. The Exige is everything I wanted it to be so far. Just driving fun. Went out fly swatting in it yesterday from bewdley to Aberystwyth it’s first real run out to see those 1000 miles off 😁 200 plus miles in traffic but also on great roads with nothing in front and also in towns where all you get are smiles no bad reactions so far. I’m upto 750 now 😬 and giving it a bit more 🦶🏼as I was told to do 😁 it’s a bit awkward to get in and out but no different to my old Elise. the stereo is pointless not turned it on 🤣 driving around town 30mph is not a problem it always feels quicker I look down and I’m only doing 28🤣 In every way it’s awesome for me and I’ve been driving mine almost every day As long as I can get in and out the thing it’s a keeper 😍 Any excuse for pics 😬
  4. 😬 I know I do wonder some times. But since I’ve had it this week I’m certain I made the correct decision. I’m doing my best to get the 1000miles in currently upto 400 😁. But even only taking it upto 4500 revs it’s just so damn quick to much for the road really and that’s where I’ll be for the most part to start with But then most people who track them seem to want more than 420-30 so figured stick with this and if I want more power 10k towards it 🤷‍♂️🤣
  5. They put The j hooks on mine as they had no standard breaks. some of the later ones may end up as virtual cup cars if your lucky 🤣
  6. Yours was a definite inspiration. Pictures of yours with everything that you’ve done to it are brilliant. Which says a lot to me because in the flesh the colour takes on a whole new life. They really are awesome cars. And zero rattles or squeaks so far 🥳 🤣 This pic from outside the holiday lodge 🤣(caravan) as the light fades it’s just an awesome colour
  7. Cheers. You won’t be disappointed with Fire red it is just absolutely stunning I’m sure you will be delighted with it. The access panel, louvred rear hatch and the aero pack were added on the configurator. The spoiler just changes the whole rear end I think.
  8. 🥳🥳🥳 finally picked mine up yesterday afternoon. I really don’t think it’s going to take long to get the first 1000 on the clock 😝 near enough 250 already the kids keep getting me to take them out in it 😁 first thoughts are it’s flipping awesome 2nd thoughts are 4500-7000 must be mind blowing. It’s really to fast for the road 🥴 3rd thoughts fire red is absolutely awesome pictures really do it no justice at all. But here are some anyway 😍
  9. Wow only 15 that’s never correct but is great in a selfish way. It’s not gonna stop me putting the miles on mine though🏎 I only had a short blast in a demo that only had a few hundred miles on it so never got past 4000 rpm. Which felt bonkers compared to my old 111r. So can’t wait to see what it’s really got. 🤯 I pick mine up a week on Saturday. I’m not sure who’s more excited me or my lad. I bought some white puma speed cats 6 months ago that I haven’t even looked at since 🤦‍♂️ Can’t wait for there first trip out🏎🏎 I may even get my haircut and have a shave 🤣
  10. 😬I love the look of the carbon just couldn’t resist. A 420 May have been the way to go but I’m just not sure I will use it on track and I guess if I did get into tracking it then I may want to up the power more so figured the 390 was a good start point and still be 10k cheaper even with the carbon. I would have gone for the carbon roof as well but my lad is desperate to get the roof off when it comes so I’m trying to get hold of a soft top. I've been thinking about getting one so long another week shouldn’t be too bad 🤯😁
  11. So mine has come into silverstone 😍 in which is amazing but a bit frustrating as well as my garage won’t be ready until wk/c 21st so due to pick up 26th 😁. Although I need the garage to be done the car will be spending a lot of time at our caravan in the wyre forest near Bewdley, a gateway to many fun roads off into mid Wales😬 👍. One thing I’ve noticed on my everyday motor t5 when we stop at the van is we do get a lot of detritus from all the lovely trees and they’re inhabitants 🤦‍♂️ So looking for a good cover for when it’s not being ragged somewhere out in the wilds 🤣 I’m presuming the ones on sale from the shop will be fine out under the trees?
  12. Spoke to silverstone last week about a soft top for mine. Ordered that(12weeks wait apparently 🤦‍♂️) and was also told the car will be coming in in the next few weeks 😁 But I won’t have anywhere to put it until June 🤬 as my extension being currently done with nice new garage will not be done 🤯
  13. Thanks Bibs, That’s what I’m thinking re the ppf. Getting it done straight away takes any hassle out of it and as you say it will be as clean and tidy as can be. Certainly is the preferred option. I was looking at Daytona blue as well which will also look fantastic. But it was always going to be fire red 😍
  14. C8RKH and stephenwhyte. Your cars are stunning and the colour I really wanted.Also Arun_d’s Canyon red, all the pics of your cars are amazing. I’ve had a bit of a wobble the last few weeks as there’s a couple of fire red exiges for sale but I just don’t think the garages have done the best with the pics. I can’t blinking wait and yes gone for carbon front access, rear and wing. I Just love the look of the carbon but didn’t think I’d miss the extra grunt of the 420. If I get into tracking it then 10k should get me above 420 spec via komotec etc I think 🥴All I need to do now is get my extension built (for the garage) and find someone who will insure it 🤦‍♂️And then work out if to tell swmbo about it or just turn up in it😬
