I am the 4th owner, bought the car at 41k miles. I have done 5 track days and added about 6k miles. The rocker panel star-shield needs replaced, I am going to schedule replacement this month. I'll post newer pictures when this is done.

Here is a thread detailing some of the changes I made: https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f157...-build-215721/

This is a great street or track car. Whenever I went to the track I would adjust the suspension to be stiffer, then soften it before heading home. I've taken it for a weekend cruise on many mountain and back country roads. Brake pads are amazing on track and very street able. They only have a little squeal at slow stops, warm up with one or two quick stops.

I wasn't expecting to sell it any time soon, work is ramping up in pace and will be taking a lot more of my time over the next few years. It is going to sit around more than I would like.

If you want to ask a question but can't use the PM system, you can contact me here: paperthinportal at gmail com








Sound of supercharger when going all out (stock exhaust is now back on the car, at the time of video it had the BOE ST):

Thoroughly enjoyed the video. Very nice Exige.
If it doesn't sell before the 20th and mine doesn't sell by then either we should meet up at Cars and Coffee. Only other Lotus cars I ever see are the occasional Evoras there.

Good luck with the sale!

Great looking Exige. Anyone with knowledge on the topic know if this '06 would be road-legal in CA with the '07 supercharged motor?

I owned this car during the retrofit, living in Northern CA. Passed smog, for me.

Now importing it back , it would need to go through CHP, but it SHOULD be fine.

Technically no, but I never had any issues given the fact that the car is so uncommon.

I haven't touched the tune, so emissions should be the same as when carphoria owned it.

The Kokdfire 270 tune isn't emissions legal however.

I also run the Kokdfire tune and have to flash back to the stock tune when smogging. It shouldn't be a problem because most smog techs don't even know what a exige is.

Ah interesting. I was able to pass WA emissions through the OBDII port without any issues.

California smog tests require a sniffer, so you can't 'cheat'. If you are running rich, a smog test will fail you, but an OBD test is none-the-wiser. This is also a concern now that some states like NY and VA are having issues with the OBD readers, so guys around here are having to go back to a sniffer test. But, assuming yours has a cat, it is a simple matter to take care of

Where are you getting this information? I just checked the DMV site and it still says biannual smog checks.

You still have to smog every 2 years but it's via obd2 scan and visual.

Same here, except I drop in a standard ECU.

My Koldfire fails in CA as it doesn't set the 2 O2 ready states, and CA only allows 1 state to be not ready. 2 not ready is an immediate fail.

Cheers.

I smog 2-5 cars in California weekly. 2000+ smog is tested through the obd2 port, not a sniffer test. During the test, the smog machine asks if the car is turbo/supercharged. If the monitors are complete, the car could pass smog if the visual inspection was overlooked which is very possible because most smog techs are not familiar with a lotus Elise/exige. As far as bringing a car from out of state, that does not have to be done through chp. A vin verification can be done at the DMV. The vin verification will consist of verifying the vin on the dash, door, and federal/California smog sticker under the engine hatch. A DMV inspector will most likely overlook any turbo/supercharger as they just try to get as many vin verifications as possible.

To my point, CA smog is possible. Good luck with your sale. Nice looking car.

Edit: I have no personal experience with the tune on this car. I can not say one way or another if monitors are/can be set with this tune or another.

Beautiful car! If I didn't already have an Elise I would buy this.

I just can't justify switching from an Elise to an Exige when I know that I'm not driving the Elise to it's limits yet (based on laptimes at my local tracks compared to the "fast" Elise drivers.)
