Long term tests

Lotus Exige S2

Lotus advises you spend 1000 miles carefully running-in your new Exige. Not an excessive mileage, but as it took me nearly three years to cover a shameful 1300 miles in my Caterham Fireblade, I knew that unless I gave myself a deadline the running-in period could last until Spring 2007. So, with AU54 FNM booked in for its initial service and the fitment of a more vocal Lotus Sport exhaust just three weeks after taking delivery, the pressure was on.
