    There are plenty for sale at 80k, but are they selling? I see the same old ones for sale at the higher end. The ones at around the 50k-60k mark seem to sell, same as the Exige. But the more expensive ones have just been sitting for quite a while...... But that's what I have seen on pistonheads. Both the Exige and Evora seem to be a tough sell at 80k and over, dealerships have had the same 410s for what seems to be a very long time. Cars in the 60's seem to have sold very quickly. I don't actually see the Exige 430 prices spiking, new ones were always 100k, and 2 year old ones were always 80k-85k. I haven't seen any change in that recently. Maybe I'll be proven wrong. But after a quick check on pistonheads, I don't think I am.

    I am currently in the market for a 430. Unfortunately I missed out in the red one the other month and the blue one was not my cup of tea. I like this one, but at 95k no chance, the other 2 in the last couple of months were over 10k cheaper. Think they are trying it on........ I'll hold off for now and see what happens.

    Damn. I'd be all over this, missed out on the red one last month. Crypto took a massive shit last week, so I'm in hold for now.

    Was yours the blue one that a dealer had up for 80k the other week? Thats brutal..... I have a Sport 380 that i bought a year ago for 64k, had been offered 50k for it, that one is tough to swallow.

    Thats great, glad you got the one you were after. It seems like I did the same as you and paused so ended up missing out. Ha. I had my eye out a little and spotted it come up for sale, the pair of green ones had been up for 6 months maybe more that sold late last year, and the black one has been up for sale for quite some time. So I didn't think there was a hurry...... I ended up getting a px offer for my exige that was a bit of a bitter pill to swallow, I thought I could wait it out a little and ask again and get a better deal somewhere in the process. I guess not! Ha I guess I'll see what comes up next time around! Fingers crossed for orange or purple!... Edinburgh lotus had an orange one when they came out. Really cool looking car.

    Well done!!! I was actually trying to get my hands on that one myself.
  9. Just noticed a red GT430 come up for sale. Does anyone know the car. Or have any info on it. Looks good anyway.
  10. Good afternoon, I am just about to get new tyres fitted to the 380 Exige (no nitrons) i was going to ask the fitter to check the alignment and adjust if required. I dont suppose anyone has a note of the standard geometery settings that i can either hand him to set the car up to, or check against. Unless there are possibly updates or upgrades that would benefit the existing set up. Thanks Nick

    Afternoon, Yip I called them yesterday. To be honest I trawled through some photos and history and thought it had been registered but never used and had sat for a couple of years at the dealership (like the one at Leven Lotus). I just missed out on the green manual at Hoffmans at 80k last weekend. I was hoping there would be something that could be done on price, based on it being sat for 2 years unsold. I'm not a collector it's going to be used, so 3k miles or 50 miles means nothing to me, so at around the 80k odd I would have been interested. Anyway, it's sale or return. A guy bought it, didn't use it so is trying to sell. He was apparently offered 95k already but didn't take it. Oh well. Something else will turn up. Thanks

    Afternoon, Does anyone know anything about the black 430 at Silverstone at 100k? Really low miles, but so is the green auto, and the other green manual which just sold the other week? Both at 80k Looks good, has anyone seen it or know the history. Its been registered, so I am thinking it's been in stock for 2 years but not sold. Thanks
  13. Nope... I got that one.😀 Got it from Edinburgh in September.
  14. Be quick...... there is a bloke on pistonheads asking the same thing. There was a yellow one also on the facebook v6 exige club selling his a few weeks ago. Also looked pretty good!
