Anyone out there have any to part with?
No one is going to sell those mats, they are like gold.

I got them new, from Rome. Not a bad price, really, considering the standard Exige mats are $256 from the dealer (no longer available either). They aren't actually OEM, but they are very well made. They are missing the foot pad, and other than that they are nicer than OEM.

Simon doesn't have a webstore, and is pretty much super busy with racing. Let me see if I can get a link for you.

Man, I have to say, in real life this car presents better than it ever has. These Monolites are just stunning on the car. In pix I haven't figured out a way to capture them properly, but I will, just give me time. Carbon fiber headlight covers should be here this week.

Back when we were still street oriented. Loved those floormats. Then the track rat took over.

A warning to those out there who have not yet reached that point. The harness meant no turning back.

Just wait until you see the 2-piece Motorsport rotors front and rear through these Monolites. Pure jewelry.

Soon...

It's pretty but if you don't do something to the engine you won't need those brakes

I don't need the brakes, or any of the other upgrades for that matter. I'm not going to race the car, so my mod choices are mostly aesthetic.

Where did you get those lugs and how much weight did you save with them?

Hang loose on the source, I'm working on a deal.

The lugs are lighter than all the rest, although that's not why I got them. I have several lugs for comparison, including the stock, Motorsport stock, BMW, Radium, and 2 different off-brand Ti lugs (no Tikore's yet). And I can tell you, the 2-piece are OBVIOUSLY lighter. Really great stuff.

Iím very interested. Iíve been searching for a lighter option than OEM, but hesitated to switch to titanium studs.

Don't worry bro, I've got you, he's changing the price on the website tonight and I'll post a direct link. I LOVE these lugs, by far my favorite. The idea that the head turns into the shoulder instead of the shoulder turning into the wheel is really what did it for me. They are also 26mm instead of 25, which I like.

Lugs.

In order of lightness, left to right: Stock, BMW, Radium (Ti), Highline Tuning 2-piece (Ti).

The Highlines are definitely the lightest, and easiest on the wheel as well.
