Lovely looking car in that blue and yellow, congratulations and hope you have a load of fun.

There is an Exige specific section on here and a good search facility so I'm sure in no time at all you'll find one of the several threads on the exhaust noise issue.  Solution range from a "decibel reducer" from Komotech to a new back box/exhaust from 2Bular that is very track friendly and does not reduce the power.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Would highly recommend you join MLOC we have some great Sunday morning runs in the Peak District and Rutland not that far for you. A great bunch of fellow lotus enthusiast. It’s free to join and would be great to have you aboard and see you out on some runs this Year👍

i was considering another premium brand before buying the exige, Lamborghini...but they didn’t really have any clubs or enthusiasts meets,....hence i went for a brand with following and hopefully no pretentious ar*eholes...

They used to (in the 1990s)

Club Lotus Surry used to hire Goodwood for the day, and joined up with Lamborghini UK a couple of times

Hi Vikz,

Did you pull out of buying this car? It seems to have recently gone up for sale on Pistonheads. (Both as a Private advert and also through a dealer)
