One wicked car!
By Magnetic Blue Elise on


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


Bought this car 6 months ago and have the only complaint of driving it too much! Nothing has gone wrong so far and I do my own oil changes with Mobil 1 5w40 synthetic oil. On curvy roads it's unbeatable. Me and my friends with fast cars (08 evo, 05 vette, 04 G35 Coupe, 04 STI) go cruising on local back roads and none of them can keep up with me. Try taking a tight turn on the hwy at 130mph... this car can do it! Has a very unique design that is eye catching for all ages!

Best Features

The exhaust sound. When in VVT (6000- redline!) Quick steering response. The feel and joy of driving this car!! especially with the Targa section removed.

Worst Features

Wider wheels in the front. I added a small subwoofer box behind my seat and the sound is GREAT!! A little more padding in the seats...overall I don't mind too much! I'm the perfect size for this car so getting in and out isn't too terrible.
