New Owner

Post by 84Sprint » Fri Jul 24, 2015 12:04 am

I've had my first Lotus for around two weeks now and I have fallen in love with it. I previously had a Caterham R300 which I just lost the appeal for. I picked up a 2009 Exige Sprint (Yellow) with 1100 miles on it that is like brand new. I have certainly got the new owner bug and cant stop driving and then cleaning it. Not much I want to change on the car other than the rather quiet exhaust so I have ordered a 2bular cat back system to increase the volume

Hi Andrew, welcome to NORLOG. Hopefully catch you at a meet sometime, should be good to have a yellow and a blue Sprint sat side by side!
I'll be interested to learn more about your new exhaust, I'm not sure what exhaust is fitted to mine but at 106.6 dB static, it is not track day friendly but the loud pedal puts a smile on my face :D
