Hey guys

I would like to introduce myself to you gents. My name is Preeth and I am currently driving an M3, which should be sold in 36-48 hrs, and am looking to get into a 07 Exige S. :panic:

I have many questions, and I know thats what the search function is for! I have a big journal over on m3forum.net thats traced the progress of my car. I pretty much spent the last year making my car track and auto-x ready. I love the M3 but its a piggie. She's a great car, but I got a great offer on my car, and money is money! I know that I would never get the offer I am getting on the car that I am right now.

I am looking to get into an 07 Exige S. I considered the 06 Exige, but I have my heart set on the supercharged version, and also want the inability to see out my rear view mirror lol.

I am looking to get into a White/Black Exige S. Hopefully I can find one. I don't plan on getting into one until the fall. I don't want to pay these summer premium prices.

Either way, I just wanted to introduce myself and give you a fair warning, that I am on my way!

Thanks!

-Preeth

Thanks for the link!

I actually auto-x'ed with a few of the NE guys. Cool dudes!

I am debating between getting an 06 Exige and slapping a s/c on it but limiting the boost to 7psi as the 07 s/c is factory tuned to, in order to not mess up the internal components. Or just go for the 07 Exige S.

Any opinions?

You can get a 2006 for 10k less than an 07 S and for 5-6k get a s/c that will have you at 260hp.

To each his own and I don't want to offend the Darth Vader black Exige guys, but don't get black.

Makes the car look tired and you can't see all the cool lines.

White is awesome though. My close second favorite.

I think Rothrock in Springfield, PA (not far from Philly) has a couple 07 exiges. I think they may still have a grey one that only has like 1500mi on the clock - never tracked. - john.
