This is where we proud owners can upload information and pictures of our pride-and-joys (their Exige that is..)

So, #138 is slowly and surely getting there...

Quaife ATB differential was installed by Stephen Brear Gearboboxes (http://www.stephenbreargearboxes.co.uk/) and returned to Performance Autocare (https://www.performance-autocare.co.uk/), who will reinstall the box back in #138. They will then swap the (heavy) OEM exhaust with a 2bular 8x22 Road System backbox, which was dropped off at Jon's premises yesterday:

Finally, Performance Autocare will change the supercharger oil, install the Ohlins, carry out the geo (fast road setup, with standard ride height) and then back to Jon's premises for a road test.

Hopefully, I will be able to take delivery by the end of next week! :wave:

I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on the car, it’s been a while.

Please post some pics when you get her home 😎👍

Possibly, but since I am yet to meet Jon, I cannot be sure... :)

Yeah, tell me about it - it's been over 3 months now since I put the deposit down!

Never has it been this long since I have waited to take delivery of a pre-owned car....

Will post some pics up once I get my hands on it...and my thoughts on #138, my very first Lotus. Can't wait!

Indeed, will do - given the circumstances, it's a shame I cannot compare the standard RGB vs the 'upgraded' version (Ohlins, Quaife ATB diff & 2bular exhaust).
