Hi Crazy05,
I’m looking for an Exige S. It’s a recent decision. I’ve wanted an Exige for a while and finally have the funds to make it possible.
Doing more research now since I can actually afford one. From initial search, I don’t see many options. Im ok with waiting months or a year to find one.
I’m not picky on color and interior. Plan is for it to be a Friday and weekend car when weather is ok, and I live in the Bay Area so that is most of the year.

Thank you, cmaser and Darren, appreciate the warm welcome. I’m looking forward to being able to share pictures, I’m going to look exclusively in California for next four months and branch out of state if needed.
