Just to manage your expectations, there is no such animal as an 06 Exige S. Just normally aspirated Exiges in 06.

The 08's were only S240's, with the exception of about 25 special edition Club Racers, that were S220's.

Obviously, expect to pay more for the 08 S240's than the 07 S220.

Best of luck, between the two years there are about 450 cars in the country, all colors combined.

I think there is an 07 Black for sale on this forum right now at an unbelievable price for the miles.

Owned, loved, enjoyed, and now gone:
1969 Europa S2 Blue
1970 Europa S2 White
1974 Europa Twin Cam Blue
1974 Europa Twin Cam Blue
1984 Turbo Esprit Calypso Red
2005 Elise Starlight Black
2005 Elise Saffron Yellow
2005 Elise Ardent Red
2006 Exige Graphite Grey
2007 Exige Canyon Red

Other:
1970 MGB GT
1970 Datsun 510
1984 Honda CRX Si
1984 Pontiac Fiero
2004 Chrysler Crossfire
2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe

thank you for clarifying..I put "preferably" in there as I know there was no 06 S, but I didn't realise about the 08's..

really, there are that few cars out there.. ?

I just missed the Blk blk 07, on here by a few hours.. even tried upping the bid, but the seller, wouldn't budge, since a deposit had been made..

there is an 07 S in a Vegas Dealer, but, has full cage . Looking for pretty much stock car.

Yup.
For Exige:
About 300 06's
About 300 07's
About 150 08's
About 35 or so 09's
Handful of 10's

That's why I smile sometimes when I see a post like (not yours, yours is realistic):

Wanted: 07 Exige S, must be (pick your color). Must be low mileage, must be immaculate inside/out, must be priced right (I know the market), and must be within 100 miles of where I live.

BTW, I owned a Canyon Red Exige S, loved it. If/when I go back, I'll be looking for a Black/black too! Great combo.

Good luck!

thank you , seen it, super clean, perfect, but a little out of my price range. Don't want to post my price range, as it may hinder any kind of price haggling...

My odd's are not looking too good.. I'm hoping out of those 450, 07-08's 70% are black.. now the 964 RS America, in the bay area is looking like an option..

I know the Black 08 is perfect, it used to be my car.

And to get a decent 08 you will pay from close to 50K and for an 07 you will pay close to 40K. I think the extra 10K for the 08 is well worth it (better car) and it will also be worth more when you go to sell it. Good Luck!
