transmission is terrible. like shifting through a gallon of molasses. next gen Lotus vehicles are suppose to have in house built six and eight cylinder engines.

I look how you wanna look, I fuck like you wanna fuck, I am smart, capable and most importantly, I am free in all the ways you are not.

A friend of mine has a Exiege S and it was actually 1 of 9 in white that were imported here... The car was super fun to drive and an amazing car to autocross. def had that go cart feel but if your going to daily drive the car its not the most comfy car nor is it easy to get in and out of... you literally sit on the floor.

Personally never drove nor sat in one but they don't look too comfortable. Really track focused cars.
Not really my style but it seems great for those who are really looking for a weekend car/track car for around 30-40k

Too bad the new cars are basically going against Colin Chapman's design principles

I saw this car in DC one day. This man pulled up in a yellow one. After he parked I asked him about it, he said he hated it. He said it was too small, and it's so low to the ground he worries aout scratching it because he paid so much money for it.

Honestly this car does not really expose to much of your manhood bro. Get something with a little more kick...

When in doubt, show that bitch your Slurpee cup collection.

Lotus is a very niche type brand. Basically no one is going to be cross shopping a BMW with a Lotus, you're looking at 2 almost completely different demographics. I love the Elise/Exige but they are extremely basic cars and you are definitely giving up a certain level of practicality by driving one, not everyone is willing to put up with that.

I wasn't really comparing it to anything, I'm just saying that its affordable.
Im set in getting a used one soon and I know what i'm getting into. I'm young, fairly short, and healthy. It shouldnt ride any worse than any slammed car we have nowadays.

good cars, but the engine and trans leave much to be desired for a car that offers zero practicality. i'd go Z4M or Cayman S instead.

I hear they are uncomfortable as hell, bone breaking ride. Wouldn't want one as a daily, there are people over here who do drive them as dailies though.
