2007 Exige S – Canyon Red 22,500 miles $45k obo

Factory options: Starshield, LSD, Traction Control (no track pack or touring)

Performance Mods: Pro Rad radiator with anodizing by RLS (see inset picture – the alien logo is visible through the front mesh -- see pics), gPAN2 baffled oil pan, Goodridge stainless steel brake lines, sport muffler

Other Mods: Multivex side mirrors (no longer in production), Black lotus emblems all around, carbon look door cards / center console, suede highlights with red stitching, leather wrapped door sills. I also have a CF Mohawk roof that is already painted Canyon Red. I can include that for an additional $1600.

Maintenance: records generally from new. The 2nd owner did his own oil changes so while the maintenance is logged in the book, there are no invoices. But I have the invoices for the 1st, 3rd and 4th owner (me). Last oil / brake fluid / inspection was done May 2013 at Galpin Lotus and they also did the oil line recall at that time; car has been driven 1,000 miles since service. Car also passes CA smog (last smog fall 2013). If it matters to you, I keep all my service records in a binder and also went through the trouble of tracking down the prior owners to get the service records. That work is already done…

Condition: Car has been always garaged, never driven in the rain under my ownership. Paint is excellent. No dings, dents or scratches. Like most Exiges, the starshield is peppered where it was doing its job and the access panels on top of the hood have some light peppering too. In the linked pictures I have a shot of the Starshield on the rocker as well as the access panels so you can get a sense.

Other: The car scores 90 on Autocheck (email me for the report), but it has been in a light rear impact accident (5mph, rear-ended at a yield sign). The car was repaired the right way – clam was replaced using all OEM hardware (including the $7.5k OEM clam and diffuser) by Mulholland Motorsports in Los Angeles. I can provide pictures of the pre-repair damage, pictures of the car that hit me (VW Jetta showing only bumper scratches), pictures of the frame during repair (confirms no damage -- the mounting tabs for the rear clam were not even bent) and the repair invoice. I imagine Julio at Mulholland would be happy to talk to a buyer as well – he can attest how much attention was paid during the repair process by both Mulholland and me. Anyway, I will be totally upfront with what happened and I think the documentation shows the car was repaired to OEM standards...for those of you familiar with the OEM paint, perhaps better :)

Included: 1 key / fob + second fob (I was going to have a second key cut but never got around to it but the fob is new in the bag), boot tool kit, owners manual, binder of service receipts since new (ex second owner as discussed above) and receipts for mods

Other: clear title, inspections welcome. I am happy to take serious potential buyers for a drive to see how she runs but I will not let you drive unless we have a sale agreement in place with a deposit subject to verification.

Weekend bump.

Several have asked so I'll mention it here -- car has not been tracked. 2nd owner did some autocrossing but none of us took her to the track.

Also car includes rear view mirror and sun visors. I am guessing the new owner won't have much use for their either, but I do have them.
