The back is kind of cool, the front not so much.

@FistHammer

Do you know if CK Lim will make the Exige V6 front end for the standard S2?

Yeah I agree 100, the back is cool, little over the top but the front and side view not doing it for me.

I did just ask ck if he plans on making a rear to match the front gtr style he makes, if so I may get it.

not thinking he plans to replicate a stock look, I'm gonna guess he trys to create his own. However I bet he would if someone would order it. There are options out there to get the v6 clam on the s2, just gonna take like 12k-14k. But it will fit like factory'

The v6 Exige is my favorite style. Maybe he can take the GTR one and resculpt it a bit to mimic the v6?

Yes he defiantly can,

he was willing to do various options for me on this one. One of the toughest choices I had to make was do I stick with original headlights or go with the new style ones.

I love the new ones but they were going to be over 3k just to get the headlights and I just bought a new older style set last round of parts for the car...

Doing some digging around since I will be removing the front clam' going to do the radiator swap so far I found this as the best price: Rad

Think silicone rad hoses and stainless steel brake lines are on the wish list too!

Also I'm thinking I am going to sell my stock front clam, cheap. I would totally save it but I just don't have the room in my garage and I am never gonna use it.

I saw this on the lotus FB group, I am thinking of doing something like this with metallic white. The GTR clam has 2 body lines coming down the hood area so might keep that all black. Already will have black mesh and CF access panels.


I'll keep my eyes open for the guy rebuilding, Still haven't got mine off the car yet but plan to soon here, Ill make a for sale thread sure someone will find it there.

I think you should go for the new lights since every reference picture you've posted so far has been of cars with the new lights. You may be unconsciously more into the new lights than you think!

Edit. Never mind. I see you already have your clam for the old lights. Good luck with the build!

Finally getting to putting this front end on and found the first issue I am going to deal with. Seems fixable if I add my own plate but wondering why my 2006 headlights don't fit in the new clam. Must have 2005 headlight sockets.

anyone run into an issue like this?
