Hello all,  I would like to introduce my new to me 2010 Lotus Exige 240. I am not new to Lotus this been my 4th car, first was a 2001 Elise Racetech, a 2004 111R that got made into a Elise SC and a 2007 Europa S which kicked out over 330Hp and also my farther has a 1973 Elan plus 2 130/5 which we restored in 1991/93.
So why the change, I've wanted an Exige for a while, I simply took my Europa as far as I could and wanted a change/challenge. 
My Exige is a 2009/11 Model with performance and touring packs and I have since added the full motorsport seats etc, it has also had the factory 260 upgrade alloy bells and TD wheels by the previous owner. 

My plans for the car are to for this year to enjoy it pretty much as it is, however given the lockdown we are all in I have done a 3 stage paint correction and cleaned and serviced the calipers and alloy bells. It's due to get both sills painted and full PPF applied once we are allowed to move again. Over the winter I plan to strip her down clean, replace tidy and polish so will show you my progress and share my ramblings on here.
Anyway here she is.....
