Why am I selling? I have had my eye on an Exige S300 for some time now and cannot purchase one without selling the other. If you or anyone you know may be interested, please feel free to reach out to me at any time. I am a confident seller. This car has never been tracked, was never wrecked, and all the body panels are completely original. Most of its miles consisted of highway travel to and from work in the Austin area upon arriving mid-2013.

No maintenance is needed at this time outside of its next oil change. The last was completed at 23,800 miles and will need to be changed again around the 27,000 mile mark. If you are interested, I also have a pair of ramps purchased at Harbor Freight Tools should you not have a pair.

Also Included
  • Upgraded CDE 143BT head unit; CD, MP3, USB, Bluetooth, AUX compatible
  • Hardwire connection for most radar detectors
  • The car is equipped with keyless entry and comes with two keys
  • Custom-fit Heatshield windshield reflector
  • OEM diffuser
Available for Purchase
  • Uninstalled pair of new 5.25” JL C2-525x speakers and needed adapter rings = $140
  • Valentine One radar locator and windshield mount = $300

Sean, Forgot to ask you if the recalls have been done?
No recalls.

It was the one year where the oil lines were good, which is why I bought as new as I could. Radiator replaced, as discussed. Thanks again for coming out to see the car!

I'm glad you sold it. This was out of my budget, but one of the nicest cars on the market right now. I have been looking at 2005 and 2006 non supercharged cars.but I was starting to think that I was going to making an ir rational decision and splurge for yours because for not that much more money there was tremendous value and cleanliness in your car.

Congratulations on the sale!

Thank you!

It was tough finding a buyer. First the price had to be right, because she was well taken care of. A few matched that mark but they seemed so joyless, haha. Finally found someone who would care for it as I did.

Hard to see it go, but I'll have an S300 in the near future.
