It's a two person job I think. I'm going to attempt mine shortly - also looking forward to going topless :B)

 

I'd say it's easy with one person as I took my hardtop off my Exige (and VX) many times on my own.

Maybe first time you might want a hand but it's pretty straight forward.

 

B&C are drilling the holes for my softtop conversion today :)

By myself, it took less than 5 minutes!

The hardtop is incredibly light, and easily lifted by one person.

The little ratchet that's supplied in the toolkit isn't great though - I used my own small, angle-adjustable ratchet with the supplied Allen key head.

I've even made a shelf in the garage with foam padding to stand the roof on.

4 eyelet bolts drilled into the wall, and two bungees crossing the roof diagonally holding the roof in place.

New member to the forum here :) ! Just pulled the trigger on this Chrome Orange Exige V6 from Brandon at Edinburgh Lotus. I have been a Porsche fan since i was young owning a few different models , but after driving the Exige i'm fairly taken by the experience it gives you once you climb in the drivers seat. Looking forward to picking her up in a few weeks time...

Gorgeous. It's such a special car. Trust me, you'll love every mile..!

That's a lovely orange V6. Congrats :-)

 

Here is a little video of my best lap in the V6 at last weekends Lotus Cup Uk Speed Championship. A slippery and very bumpy North Weald. Got 5th in the Lotus Supersport class (missed 4th by 0.02 sec) and 14th overall (out of 85 cars). Probably more in the car but I am still getting to grips with it as it is a different beast to the Elise.

Thanks. Hadn't seen this photo before... The car drove like a beast, I just need some more 'bumpy airport' confidence.

I took it! 

 

The bump after the right hander onto the straight saw some cars airborne and most cars spinning!
