This would be a bad idea, because than Munich police dept. is awaiting you. And Munich is well known for their way of acting with "criminal drivers" or illegal equipment. Even they just consider it is illegal, it's just a mess.

But then, Bavaria isn't part of Germany. In fact, Munich is closer to Sarajewo than Hamburg.:sofa:

As we say here, everything south of the Elbe is Northern Italy.

@TBD no TÜV for the exhaust does not matter to you?

No, it will have TüV! Everything except the tune will need it. That wing alone will gain sufficient attention from the blue men group

Hi norbert, 

I'm very interested ! I even bought few months ago the OEM central part, in order to see how to modify it for 2 Din (like in the Tesla Roadster), but gave up ... some structural aluminium dashboard has to be cut, though ...

Looks great, would it be wrong to post up their contact details publicly? I'm interested myself...

Its M.A.S. Style in Germany http://www.mas-style.de/ - they are a Lotus Dealership.

Frank Jacobs is the best guy to contact there you can say hello to him from me ... 

But I doubt that this is cheap ... I would guess 2k plus ... I didnt do it, as I do not need Navigation it in my Exige ... I much rather have the AIM Race Display ... 

Bibs: if this is against policy - just delete it  ?

Congrats Thomas!!! Welcome to Exige ownership. If you have not driven the EX460 Kit in an Exige be prepared for some serious excitement - I was easily able to keep up with a 458 Speciale on Kemmel Straight in Spa ?

By the way: I loved the car when I saw it at EMS on Sunday.

You even already have the AIM race display! I am seriously tempted by that...

Best of luck with this exciting car

Norbert

How about the gearbox and understeer? 

I drive quiet intense with the Exige and this two issues makes me a bit unsure about going for the 460......... 

Any experience yet on this?

Understeer got a lot better with the Oehlins Track and proper Setup. Even a good friend of mine who races BMW Challenge and drove the car before and after, said that the Setup is a big improvement.

On the gearbox we will see what happens but its probably fair to say that a gearbox oil cooler will really make sense ... I will get one installed over the Winter...

I'm going to delete the AIM display. It only has a 5" screen, which is smaller than my Smartphone:o But, I'm working on a much better solution!

And by better solution do you mean standard binnacle plus tesla styled double din ICE /air vents now available courtesy of SSC?

 

Just checked a couple of posts above and I'm late to the party it seems... Gosh you exige drivers/forumers are fast

It's an option, but only if those vents really add value. It is ridiculously expensive.

In the GTE the center vent was the first thing SWMBO always closed when she got in the car. 

It wouldn't be hard to make a 3D-print of whatever design I decide on. Maybe carbon skinned afterwards.

Epic choice @TBD congrats!

Will you be sticking with the rear hatch mounted wing or moving to clam mounted?

A few years ago, when my working week was split between Hamburg and Bruckmuhl (South East of Munich), it was explained to me that in fact Germany is actually part of Bavaria :sofa:

 

Congratulations on the Exige, it does look amazing in those pictures :thumbup:

Funny. Today I checked the offers in mobile.de and saw this car. Was wondering, why it's still for sale. ;)

Well done !! Congrats.
