2008 Exige S240, 20k miles, Ardent Red

This is painful, but purchase of cabin forces sale of Lotus.

2008 Exige S240, ardent red, 2nd owner, 20,XXX miles.
This car was sold new from the dealer here in the Seattle area (Park Place ltd) and has remained local.
Always garaged, first owner and myself never tracked it.

Factory options:
-Track package
-Touring package
-Starshield

Upgrades as of ~4k miles ago:
-KF270 tune w/525cc injectors. Purchased spare ECU w/flash, preserving original and original 440cc injectors.
-BOE ST muffler. Rear exit thru spare panel, preserving original. Also retained original muffler.
-3.0" S/C pulley, again hanging on to original.
-Brand new RE71R tires all around. < 100 miles.

I have all the original parts if the buyer wants to go back to completely stock, but I'd recommend not doing that. The car runs so much nicer with the above - night and day! No problems passing WA emissions and no noticeable drop in mileage. I average about 26mpg.

Early in its history the dash went bad and was replaced under warranty, thus the door sticker indicating it was replaced with 3196 miles. Common issue and has already been resolved. The factory oil line recall was completed by Park Place when I had the car inspected prior to buying.

I've been extremely happy with the car and I have no doubt the next owner will equally enjoy it. Please send a PM if interested. Located in Woodinville, WA.

First $60k takes it home.

No discussions on price unless the OP asks for it per the forum rules below. Take it to PM.

1. No for sale threads with just a link to an eBay, Craigslist, or any other site ad. Take the time to actually make a decent for sale thread.

2. Pictures sell items/cars, please post pictures with for sale threads.

3. No "testing waters" threads, no "just wanting to see what I can get" threads, no "feeler" threads. Although itís acceptable to list an item OBO, or post an item and ask for everyone's best offer.

4. Discussion following the normal rules of the forums welcomed, but no comments on price allowed unless the OP specifically asks for it. Otherwise, take it to PMs.

5. If market place rules are not followed when posting a for sale thread, it will get deleted.

I'd also tell you to hang onto it! there aren't many s240's for sale across the country maybe a 2-3 at any given time. low mileage to boot!
