WTB - Exige with S/C

I'm pretty flexible, looking for an good condition Exige, clean title, with under 40k miles. Desirable to have touring and LSD.

I'm open to an 06 with low miles and no S/C.

Color preferences are Orange, White, Black, Silver.

I'm happy to fly in and drive out if temp tags can be secured!

Will add that I'd like to be shopping in the 40's, low for 40k miles, higher for less miles of course!

Given the limited number of these cars, and given your price range, you're probably looking at 06 and 07's. The 08's and later likely are out of that price range.

So you're looking at 700, MAYBE 800 cars in the US. A number of them have either been wrecked or turned into track cars. So at any given time how many, in any color/option package, let alone what you're looking for, are actually for sale?

Your checklist suggests you're maybe not as flexible as you think.

Better to say: "In market for an Exige, XXX miles, max, here's my budget" and just see what floats in. You can always ignore those not equipped the way you want, or the color you want.

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

Well, to a degree, that's the point - my checklist is not a hard checklist and everything is negotiable. There are definitely things that I would prefer, but the hard list is simply that's an exige as opposed to say... an elise (no bad will to elise, I just have a thing for the exiges). Ultimately, if someone is thinking about moving on, I would love to understand and consider what they may have.

I can absolutely stretch for the perfect "one owner" type car, if it presents itself, but would be more comfortable with spend in a middlish 40's range for something with something miles and light mods (battery, radiator, exhaust). If to say anything, I'm not really in the market for a premium preserved < 5k miles car.

My ultimate order of preference is Color -> S/C -> -> miles at 40kish -> equipment; looking at a modded '06 or a '07 S, I fully realize an S240/260 would take more dollars and would step up accordingly.
