I've been searching cars for a while and have narrowed it down to a 2007 Lotus Exige S with about 70 miles. This is a new car with an initial service date of 3/30/09. It was a dealer transfer. Car is black on black, track pack, lsd, starshield, touring, ipod, alpine, etc...

Problem is...what is the right price for this car. The dealer is asking $50k.

What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance!

I think too pricey. Search the for sale forum here and see how much slightly used one's have sold for.

The car is new. The warranty started in March 09? If so, then you still have 2 years and 9 months left on the warranty. Make sure you find out when the warranty started. The price is not too outrageous but a little high. Offer $45k and settle for something in between?

A new Exige S 240 w/o any options has an MSRP of $65,000. With all options, about $50,000 doesn't seem too unreasonable.

Sounds like a deal. I've done stripes on a couple Exige S 240's with window stickers at $77K

This is an 07 so it is the 220 horse model. I've never purchased a new car that was nearly three years old before so this is interesting for me.

be very careful of damage caused by the car sitting for so long.like tires being flat spotted.head lights burned.cant remember all the things to check for.there was a thread here somewhere that listed all the things that happen to these cars from sitting so long.maybe someone here can fill in the blanks for you.

Sounds like a good price to me! I didn't pay too far from that for one that only had a year left of warranty and 5,000 miles on it.

I agree. I just bought a used Exige S for a little north of 40K with only 4500 miles, but you're getting the security of knowing you're the first owner. Not that I doubted the seller of my car, mind you, just that buying direct from the dealer is an additional security blanket.

50K for a brand new car that probably stickered for 66K to 68K sounds decent to me.

Agree - 50 seems reasonable to me
