One of the best pound for pound weight saving you can do on the Lotus Exige V6 S3 is to swap the heavy OEM battery for a lithium alternative. In our own efforts to save weight see 'reducing weight thread' we removed over 16KG in one move!
£ to Kg saved there is no better weight reduction upgrade you can achieve and we did the calculations!
