Any owners in the Cambs area? Newbie Alert

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Quick Summary - is there anyone in the Cambridgeshire area that could spare me some time for a natter and chinwag on the S3 Exige? Any flavour is good.

Basically, after years of Type-R Honda's, track days, farting around with and obsessing over suspension bushes, tyres, tyre pressures, weight saving, etc, I spent a few months actively looking to get into a Chrome Orange S2 Exige in 2010, and had the rug pulled out from under my feet a few times. Cue life stuff, house purchase, relationship woes, new job, and the like, I eventually swapped an S2000 for an AMG C63 in 2015. I had no time for weekend tinkering and track days, so a brute of a daily has been an excellent experience. The C63, whilst it isn't a precision tool, is a thoroughly fun and enjoyable daily.

Throughout this time, a friend of mine James (who @alias23 knows it turns out), has had many a Lotus/Radical/Atom to keep potential Lotus in the back of mind - his current Red S1 Honda SC car being incredible. I am likely to be in an opportunity over the next couple of months to acquire a non-daily which I can keep in the garage. Straight on to the classifieds on PH for an S2 Exige I went, but I kept finding myself drawn to the S3 cars and I ended up here obsessing over S3's....

I'd like to chat to some locals if there are any and see if there's any meets I can attend to get some first hand visuals and experience of the S3. See whether it'll fit my brief etc.

Hopefully chat to more of you soon 😀

Hi ... James is a good friend and arguably my track day partner lol Shame you're not closer to me (Gloucester) otherwise I'd take you out.

I’m near Cambridge, recently picked up an S3 (350 with the upgraded TVS1900 which I highly rate). Will be at Silverstone on Sunday because it’s a proper Supercar - unlike those over priced McLarens. Bright red, carbon wing - you can’t miss it. Think 430 Cup in disguise...

Hey Gary

How did you get on with your search?

I'm based in Cambridge near the Science Park, with the Flame Red 350 Sport if that helps.
