'06 Exige Wanted - Serious Buyer

Hello all. I'm trying to put some feelers out to the community and see if anybody has any leads on a mint condition, 2006 Exige for sale. I'm a serious buyer and would like to complete a transaction in the next couple of weeks. Please let me know if you or someone you know has a car for sale. Thanks!

It seems as though there aren't any 06s available for sale out there at the time. Does anybody have any leads on an 07 that might be available?

Having had both an 06 and now an 07, I can tell you getting the 07 is money well spent! Having the added power of the supercharger makes the car perform as well as it looks!

Don't get me wrong, the N/A engine in the 06 is plenty quick. But having the ability to stomp on the accelerator in 6th gear at highway speeds and taking off like a dart is AMAZING!!! I want even more!! Gonna get the Blade 275 upgrade in the coming weeks. Moooooore Pooooower!!!

Awesome. The more I consider and research the matter, the more I want an '07. It's just going to be a matter of finding the right car for the right price. All of the '07s that I've seen on eBay and the various classified sites seem ridiculously overpriced.

Keep looking here. The going price for a low mileage 07 is around $39k to $41k. Take your time and it will come. Don't rush.

If all the cars you see advertised are priced close to each other...perhaps they are not ridiculously overpriced after all.

Remember, there are only about 300 0'6's, in the country, and about 300 07's in the country altogether. Of those, on any given day MAYBE a few dozen of each might be for sale. That impacts the pricing quite a bit.

That's a good point. I'm still seeing a couple of '06s priced right around $40k and '07s as high as 50s. Based upon what I've seen historically in the last six months of pricing in the for sale section here those numbers seem a little high.

I appreciate the encouragement. I'll keep my eyes and ears open and try to remain patient. The right car will eventually pop up.
