Picking Up My Lotus Exige S LF1

Today was the day that I picked up my Lotus Exige S LF1 from Williams Automobiles and it will be the first time I have actually sat in the car.

I was welcomed by the dealer, who unveiled the car from under a car cover. The Exige LF1 looked magnificent. All the work we had already agreed upon beforehand was complete, the front tow hook was fitted with a new front grille and some of the decals had been removed. The full toolkit and tyre foam was all present and correct, as was the LF1 collectors pack.

As explained in my previous posts I have had a problem with a stone getting lodged between the when rim and brake caliper on my BMW M4 with Carbon Ceramic Brakes. The damage to the wheel is a deep groove around the inside of the rim, down to the metal.

After being told by my BMW dealership that BMW UK have reconfirmed that they would not replace my damaged wheel I decided that I would follow this up myself.

After deciding that I wanted a Lotus Exige S LF1 the next thing to do was to locate one. After some research it became apparent that there were about 36 registered in the UK from about June 2014 to June 2015.

There were only three options available for the Lotus Exige S LF1, the convenience pack, rear parking sensors and heated seats. Of the three options I wanted the rear parking sensors and the convenience pack as this included a cup holder and USB connection in the car.
