WTB: Exige S, S240, or S260

In the market for a 07+ Exige. Color not deal breaker, but my offer price will certainly depend on desirability of the color! Low miles are a must, and a clean history / title. Service records are a plus

Thanks!

One man's desirability is another man's repulsion. I wouldn't get hung up on the color. You can always have it wrapped.

True, but that costs money to apply and remove, won't look as good as real paint, and carries risks upon removal depending on how long it was on the car. Overall it's just a hassle, IMO.

Point made. BUT we're not talking about Vettes, BMW's, or even Porshes here. These cars are in country in impossibly small numbers. The number for sale at any given time, is exponentially smaller. Start throwing in deal breakers people have about color, location, and you have folks waiting forever to get into a car.

THEN throw in a would be buyer stating 'cash in hand,' as if that gets someone off the fence who wasn't thinking about selling to suddenly decide to sell...and things really get bogged down.

In my experience selling cars privately, EVERY sale was cash in hand. Now, how the buyer GOT that cash...had it, borrowed it, didn't care. At the time of sale, cash was in hand. 100% of the time.

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

This is juicier then I thought it was going to get!

No worries here waiting for the right car to come along... wraps never look right and have terrible fit/finish around edges and corners. Waiting for a proper color car is definitely the preference. Skittles colors are right on these cars

Fortunately, the vast majority of modern Lotuses were made in wild colors, unlike the current offerings from most manufacturers these days.

You have been lucky, as have I in this regard, but I have read more than a few instances on here and elsewhere where a deal was made to buy a car but the buyer did not have cash. Once purchase was agreed upon, the buyer then goes to the bank and is either approved or denied a loan.
