Hey Mark,
Congratulations, this is great publicity for you and our beloved cars.

2007 Exige S. delivered on 1/2/07. Chrome Orange,touring,track,LSD,TC, Stage II and Starshield. Still considering performance/power upgrades however, I am extremely impressed by the performance/power of the S. IMHO, it definitely does not need to be upgraded. Not for the street, anyway.
There is no other car for any amount of money that I would rather own and drive.
