I am glad to say that I will be joining you guys! I finally got the nerve to go to the Lotus dealership and pick up a car. I went in looking to get a used 07 Exige S, but ended up walking out with a down payment on a band-spankin-new red Exige 240! I am supposed to get the car next week, which means that I will probably not be sleeping for the next couple of days.
I think the title of this thread may be misleading though...did you actually order a 240 or purchase one out of existing dealers stock? I don't think it is possible to order a 2009 any more - and even if you could, I don't think you could expect delivery in a few days. That process can take at least a couple of months.
