WANTED Elise S3 Soft Top for 2013 Exige S V6

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 

I’m waiting on delivery of 2013 V6 Lotus Exige V6 with hard top and would love to have a soft top option for warmer, sunny days...as rare as they are in Edinburgh!

This is my first Lotus so any guidance on the roof issue would be welcome. I believe the soft top from the S3 Elise is suitable but if any other models will work then I’m open to that too. The Exige I’m buying already has the conversion I allow for fitting the supporting bars. 

If anyone has something suitable, please let me know!

Welcome to TLF Robert!

You can use a roof from a VX220 or any Series 2 Elise / Exige or later  roof.

BTW Your not buying a white Exige with red accents from Leven by any chance?

Wow! Was this your car by any chance?! It’s got the soft top conversion already as the picture clearly shows so just need the soft top to go with it. Looks awesome with the black roof!

Yes, brought it from Bell & Colvill then traded it in for an Evora 400 with Murray’s (now Leven). It was originally sold when new by Murray.

I was told they sold it on to a guy in Eastbourne so was surprised when it appeared back with Leven for sale.

In my ownership I did the soft top conversion, added the sill graphics and also fitted the updated Alpine head unit. Did have an active sub in it but removed that and it’s now in my Elise cup but recommended. I assume the wiring should still be there for the sub.
