  1. Fantastic lap time and driving...
  2. I think all of the math is how to heat up the tyres in our Exige's. I was using CUP 2's in my Alfa Romeo 4C's and putting up 2.22'ish lap times on the Istanbul Park. Later, I contacted one of the ALFA 4C GT4 series racer on how to get the best tyre and the best set up(I know that GT4 series is much more different in set ups and tyres), he told me that you are never going to heat up the CUP 2's in 2 or 3 back to back hot laps. He Recommended Zestino Gredge 07rs and Yokohama AO52. Zestino is cheaper but also more durable. I put them and did 2.20's. 2 months later with a better weather, I put the AO52's and did 2.16.600. My take is that, if you have a light car, you have to have a tyre which can get an optimum heat in 1 or 2 laps.
  3. Thank you very much brother. A great car just like your. I will keep posting my experiences and photos. Cheers๐Ÿ™
  4. Thank you very much. The feel is one of a kind.
  5. Finally I have driven my car๐Ÿ˜ƒ. What an experience that was. Even that I haven't revved more than 4000 rpm due to break-in period, the car felt awesome. I have driven and owned many super sport cars but haven't had a decent experience like this before. The handling is crazy good and the feeling in the steering wheel is unmatchable. I am so happy and lucky for buying this car. The pinnacle of driving...
  6. Yes my brother. I feel very lucky for tomorrow. I will post a lot of pictures and will share my opinions about the car. My best regards.
  7. Thank you very much, this is very beneficial. If it is in the owner's manuel, means that they are 100% correct. Appreciate it.
  8. Thank you very much Gordon for the quick response. I will be doing exactly what you said ๐Ÿ’ช
  9. Hi Everyone' I am going to drive my Exige Cup 430 for the first time tomorrow in Munich. How long will the break-in period takes, in everyone's experiences? 1000-1500 kilometers?
  10. Very good then. Thank you for your response.
  11. Thank you for the answer. Just like you said, the downforce and the speed differences wouldn't differ too much. I asked this because in Anglesey Coastal, the CUP 430 destroys a lot of cars on lap times. However, in German and French tests, the results are not good. Most of the people in here knows and have driven porsches, ferraris and knows how their Lotus' compare to them.
  12. Hi Guys, Have anyone recorded their Exige CUP 430 lap times in a track? I am really curious that how it compares to 991.1 GT3RS's and 718 GT4's. Due that it is a very special and a limited car, there aren't many lap times by journalists and professional drivers. Also, do you think that there is much difference between CUP430 and Sport 410?
  13. Great job Paul. Another nice video by you๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  14. Ah yeaah. I watched this in youtube before. So thats you. It was a super great lap time. I always check out and compare lap times with the lap times in youtube. And this is clearly a near perfect lap time. Great driving and car.
  15. Great driving. The first lap was pretty fast. You will probably reach's easily in a less crowded day. What a nice video.
  16. Great. Hope you will enjoy the car. I think the covers are out there that if you want to add a stereo system.
  17. Looks stunning. Green colors in CUP 430's are legit.
  18. You're right. Mine doesn't have the stereo system. I am only going to use it on track so that it was the best option for me.
  19. The links that you shared, shows that the system is around 1.5-2.0 kilos. I thought that the back of the head unit(which cannot be seen due that it is inside the front panel) is a heavy metal piece that is around 3-4 kilos. Thanks for the links and your time.
  20. Oh thanks Paul. But i think that it should be heavier than 1.5 kilos. But i am really curious about it.
  21. Does anyone know how much the stereo system in Cup 430 weights? I was talking with one of my friend who is planning to remove the stereo system in his GT3RS, he claims that it saves around 12 kilos. How about the Exige's?
  22. Thank you My brother. The car is at 0 km's right now. Just put it down from the lift. Due to rainy conditions, it looks wet. Don't want to risk it in The Ring. Lots of cars in a daily event. The advantage of Istanbulpark is, the only put 20 cars max in a day, so that there is a pretty safe environment. I will also consider your Emira tip for sure.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™
  23. Hi guys it's Cemil from Istanbul, Turkey. I bought this black Exige Cup 430 in Munich, Germany 3 months ago. My main goal was to import the car before 2022 without the number plate and use it only on track days in Istanbul Park. Due to regulations in Turkey, you cannot import a vehicle in 2022, if it is 2021 model or models which are built before 2022. The car stays at my friends garage in Munich for now. If I could get a residency permit in Germany, due that I owned a factory out there and still working with many German citizens, I would get a German number plate and bring the car to Istanbul. Greetings from Turkey
