2007 Lotus Exige S $41k

See below for all of the details of the Lotus. I will get some updated pics ASAP.

The clutch is due to be replaced. When really getting on it, it does slip some. If I don't sell I'll get it replaced and keep it, but I've had this for a few years now and I think it's time to try out something new. The car is incredibly fast and has been a fun car to drive.

[SOLD] FS: 2007 Exige S - Ardent Red - 12,733 miles - modded

I dunno, maybe posting a 3 year old link that got you to buy the car is kind of short cutting the sale a little. "When really getting on it..." suggests that perhaps an overall update on its current condition, in addition to the clutch, might be helpful.

Have owned, enjoyed, appreciated, and now all gone:
1969 Europa S2 Blue
1970 Europa S2 White (my first)
1974 Europa Twin Cam Special Light Blue
1974 Europa Twin Cam Special #4380R Indigo Blue (my absolute favorite).
1984 Turbo Esprit Calypso Red
2005 Elise Starlight Black
2005 Elise Saffron Yellow
2005 Elise Ardent Red (used as development mule for the LETSLA)
2006 Exige Graphite Grey
2007 Exige S Canyon Red (first customer installation for the production LETSLA)

Not a surprise, I agree.

This is the 3rd "lazy" for sale thread in as many days. One was for leather "console" cover.

OP, not singling you out, but here's some advice.

Post lots of pictures, not links.

Picture worth a.....

Be a bit original. Not a copier.

How many paid ads have we ever seen without a photo or 3 of the item?

Apologies guys, I'll get some updated photos by tomorrow evening. I'm just a bit anxious to get something new for the summer so wanted to get it up ASAP.

I've put only about 3,000 miles on the car, no other issues besides the clutch. I've maybe driven it 10-12 times in the last year. I still get around just fine in it, but if I want to "show off" and really get on it, I'll experience a slip when I hammer on the throttle sometimes.

I guess my question has is why the clutch needs replaced at 16,000 miles? Now if you tell me it has 500 hp then I would understand? There definately needs to be a lot more info in this ad. Even if there is no time for pictures it can't take more than 10-15 minutes to write a solid for sale ad that gives current info and condition of the car. My immediate gut reaction when I see ads like this is if the time can't be taken to do at least some kind of write up how can I trust the car was serviced and taken care of?

Mods, forgive me if I'm out of line and delete this post accordingly.

It appears I don't meet the requirements to send a PM on LotusTalk, would you mind sending me one with your contact information?

I was the one who posted the leather console cover sale thread and within an hour two people wanted to buy it so 'lazy' but effective and I didn't need to waste my time taking pictures

Note that I did recommend people buy your item.
