I bought mine from Silverstone to go on my car.

I also had these delivered from another owner who sourced them for me. They're finished in the closest match we could get to Liquid Yellow and will go on the Phantom Black rear section underneath the lights :)

At the end having the chance to change the order within 15 days, I decided to change the color of the car. I chose the Toxic Green  :thumbsup:

A last minute change, we've all been there.

 

Laser Blue = Nice

 

Toxic Green = Naughty

 

I hope that makes some kind of sense in Italian but it's meant to be a compliment!

Have you considered Verde Ithaca? It's quite color for a car like this

 

No, because the cost of a bespoke paint are very expensive. When I saw the Toxic Green I loved it.

The idea of changing the color, the match is the fact that now the diamond cut wheels are no longer available. The total black wheels matched to the color Laser Blue, I don't like. I preferred to choose another color and when I saw the Toxic Green, I was excited.

Interesting that Diamond Cut wheels are no longer available! I wonder what happens if you damage one?

As parts are still available

Interesting that they are discontinued all the same. I have to say I love the way they look but the finish just isn't up to hard track use. Once water's got under the laquer thanks to stone chips and the like, they go the way of all the other diamond cut wheels in fairly short order.

Do you have any pictures? I've spec'd diamond cut wheels for my V and will do the odd trackday.

I understand I might be one of the last orders to get the wheels.

Im under the assumption, and I made a thread in another Exige section asking, that repairing the diamond cut rims is probably much harder with less chances of success in a great repair job than the normal rims. However, do correct me if I'm wrong.

I kerbed a rear wheel very soon after I bought the car, but Lotus Silverstone assure me it's no problem and can be fixed. I'm fairly relaxed about this sort of thing and will get it fixed at first service.

Of course I want the car to look great, but a few dings won't stop the fun!

What exhaust do you recommend? I was thinking of a Larini with valve control.

 I like the idea of this too as enjoyed my larini on my S2.

I have heard that the stanard gets better over time and I've no idea how track friendly the larini is.

I had a full Larini exhaust system on my Evora which I will be putting in my Exige. It's quite loud. To give you an example on hard acceleration in an Evora above 3.5K or so RPM you can't hear the radio anymore in the car! But the sound is fantastic, I look forward to having it in my Exige. I posted some vids somewhere.
