Has anyone gone from an Exige S to an Evora S? Considering it.
I have a 2008 Exige S240 which I love when I get it in it and drive it, the joy I get it from driving it feels like nothing else I have test driven or tried on the road. Truly seems like a special car and nothing else is for sale out there like it.
But, I dread driving it sometimes, in Los Angeles the traffic is so bad and some of our roads aren't great along with very steep drive ways so I end up driving it very rarely. I think I also have the "bug" that I need to get something new since I've owned this for 3+ years. I kind of want something that's a bit more "livable" and I could drive more often but still get that "special" feeling that I get from my Exige S240. I'm considering the M2 Competition which seems to be one of the best "feeling" cars out there right now but I'm also thinking maybe I should consider the Evora S as well.
Has anyone switched from Exige S to an Evora S? If so how would you describe the difference/feeling between them? Also any thoughts to maintenance on the Evora S? I'd unfortunately probably go for the automatic due to Los Angeles traffic but the maintenance on the Evora seems a bit more than the Exige? I've honestly not had to do any major maintenance on the Exige except resealing my oil pan which was probably the worst "maintenance" I had to do but did it as preventative when my mechanic noticed some small residue.
Evora 400 speaks to me as well but that's still 75-80k and for that money I'd probably go Porsche but 60k or less the Evora S seems like a good consideration along with the M2 Competition.
