Ive been a long time Lotus owner and was invited to drive an Exige 410 a couple of weeks ago, which to be honest blew me away, so have decided to make the move, if anybody is interested in a rather nice black 2016, manual Aero 8 drop me a message and I’ll ping a spec and some photos over.
Cheers
Gareth

Thanks Rich, it’s my 4th Lotus so I know what to expect, although build quality on the 410 seems to be a big jump from my old 350 sport, and the ride quality on 3 way Nitrons is amazing, Morgan could definitely learn something from Lotus on that front.

Gareth, sorry to see you leave the fold, but Lotus is obviously an itch you hadn't fully scratched so enjoy the moment. Hope to see you in a +6 sometime.

Hi Ian, no I didn’t, after test driving the Exige (which has 3 way Nitrons) I decided that if I wanted to get back into trackdays the Lotus was the better option.

I mentioned mine on facebook and had a few online tyre kickers but no movement so have put it with RTCC along with my flavia convertible. I put my Tesla up on FB on the Wednesday and had cash in my bank on the Saturday!

The one I sold was a bargain, still got 5.5 years of battery and drive train warranty. Got a great deal on the new one otherwise I was going to be keeping the old one until it was driven into the ground.

I haven’t driven one yet, but from the reviews I’ve seen I would very much doubt it (although to be honest they aren’t really pitching at the same market)
