2005 Lotus Elise 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 6M)

Review

I purchased a 5,700 mile Magnetic Blue Elise on eBay, during a hurricane. Once I finally got the car, I never wanted to get out, and did but only to sleep (although I did sleep in the Elise on a long trip and found the high sills to be an excellent perch for my feet as I spread out across the cabin). I cannot explain the fun, the performance and the economy in running one of these fantastic machines. At some point every gearhead must own one. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! I may have to sell to buy a Ferrari but it is only to get more luggage space. Yes, a Ferrari can be the mature choice; but you have to start in an Elise.

Favorite Features

Speed. Handling. Styling.

Suggested Improvements

Alacantra coverings over that cheap plastic. A more positive 3rd gear engagement. A real stereo.
