Recommended Posts

I am thinking of order a the new exige s but i am not sure of some of the options.

Is there someone that have something to say about this, i am going to use my car on

track most of the time, mayby 90% track.

Below is my thinking of options, is there something that is not so important and not needed?

* Race Pack £2,000

* Air conditioning £1,100

* Trofeo tyres £800

* Diamond cut wheels, cast (17†front and 18†rear) £350

* Performance brake upgrade £1,700

Hi Kotten, firstly welcome and good choice on the Exige - have you seen the TLF review here http://www.thelotusforums.com/latest-news/lotus-cars-news/driven-exige-s/

I think options is always going to be personal choice but I think the essentials for me would be:

Premium Sport Pack (I would probably go for contrast stitching too)

Race Pack

AC (Maybe not essential on a 90% track car but good for resale?)

Trofeos (but I might wait to change to these after the first set was worn due to the relatively high option price)

I also think I would add (although probably not for a car used on track 90%) :

Convenience Pack

Heated Seats

Reversing Sensors

And Motorsport Green :)

The standard brakes are very very good - maybe wait until you have used it on track a bit and allow a bit of money to maybe upgrade in the future, but i would imagine the standard brakes would cope fine.

All my opinion mind, it will be superb whatever you go for.

Sounds like a sensible spec for track use. Brake upgrade is expensive for floating bells/rotors but they'll be OEM at least.

Just spotted there's a Carbon Pack added to the options list.... :smoke:

What? No Carbon?? Is this the new boss talking here??? Crazy... and a bit of a pisser to be honest, I guess that mean we're stuck with either an Elise interior or World of Leather... neither of which is ideal.
