An Amazing Car - But Not For Everyone
By XEEEJ on
Vehicle
2006 Lotus Exige 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 6M)
Review
The Exige is an amazing machine. Steering feel, braking & cornering are all phenomenal. The car is also beautiful to look at while being functional. I love mine, but prospective buyers need to know what they're getting. The car is not for everyone and you have to be willing to deal with its total impracticalities. It's basically a 4 wheel motorcycle. The car is best used on twisty back roads or on track. Commuting or highway cruising is a waste, in my opinion. You have to accept the attention that the car draws. It's a surprisingly comfortable car once inside. Ingress and egress are tricky but get easier with a little practice. Nothing comes close to an Exige for the money.
Favorite Features
Handling and styling. The car goes like stink, corners like nothing else, and gives tremendous feedback to its driver. The car looks like a $200k supercar or like a mini Le Mans racer. It's just a thrill every time you get it out on an open country road.
Suggested Improvements
Lotus would be well advised to offer a dealer installed supercharger for the Exige. Extra low-end grunt is always welcome even though the car is far from slow as is. HID lights would also be a welcome addition. Any other creature comforts would change the nature of the beast. Leave it alone.
