Hello Everyone, Im Jozsef (31) from Hungary, planning to buy an Exige S (2008-2011) in 2022.
Im in love with every machine that has an internal combustion engine in it and can be driven! I have two motorbike (2016 KTM 1290 Super Duke R, 2018 KTM EXC-F 500 (supermoto from april to october, enduro from october to april), ocassionally visit trackdays with both.

I've decided to buy a hobby/track car a few years ago, the main criteria were: relatively small RWD car with an angry engine, 2 seat, low seated, unique/rare, electronics at the minimum (comfort does not required), joy of driving at the maximum, and the raw sportscar sound. First "plan" was the Cayman S (2009-2013) but when I found some, I knew that I have to modify and change a lot of things for a lot of money. Then one day a saw a trailer carrying an Elise (hope not to the mechanics, but to do a trackday :)) and this made me thinking about the Lotus.

I gave myself a year to prepare, learn as much as I can about the Exige S, honestly I have seen Lotus car 4 or 5 times in my life until now, it is an extremely rare car in Hungary (or I was so blind to missed all).

Anyway, Im so happy to find the LT, before registration I read posts and discussions, you guys seem so nice and your forum is full of useful knowledge, so It is an honor to be here!

ps: I wish I could find a website here in Europe like the BAT!

Hi Jozef, Welcome! I hope you find the Exige that you like. Maybe someone not too far away can show you their Lotus so you can learn more.
