WTB: Silver, White, Grey, Red Elise

Looking for: (in order of preference) a silver, white, grey, or red '05 or newer (obviously) Elise.

Looking to stay around $33K. As usual, would prefer lower miles and something that hasn't been in an accident.

I'm in Arizona, but I have a trailer and can come pick it up within 1000 miles or so.

Thanks,
Sean King

Looks like I'm ending up buying a much newer one than I'd originally planned and paying quite a bit more too....

At this point, it's not a done deal.....but will probably be finalized Monday.

Thanks for looking though.

I'm scared to right now....missed out on 2 previous cars that got sold before I could even book a flight. I feel like I'm going to jinx it just talking about it. I've got cash down to hold this one....hoping there's nothing majorly wrong with it. It looks mint. If everything is in order upon test drive, we'll be buying it Monday!

Good for you, Sean. Looks great in white. I had those wheels too and they are really good looking on that car.

Thanks, Andy. We're super excited to get it home! Dang wire transfer *may* take 24 hours to hold before they'll release the title.

Congrats. I also had my eye on that one. Was hoping it wouldn't sell so I could go see it in person when I got a chance. Seemed like a very fair price. Enjoy it!

Out of curiosity, are the 08's still under warranty?

Sorry man....feel like I sorta stole it out from under ya. I had two sell before I could even book a flight.....these things are in high demand it seems.

Anyway, factory warranty is only 3 yr/ 36K so....unless it had extended warranty that's transferrable, then it won't be under warranty for an '08.

It really is a cherry car....there's not a single scratch on the underside. It even smells new inside.

No worries! I wasn't anywhere near close enough to being able to get it to feel any of the frustration you must have experienced before. But in the end, you probably got the best one of the bunch. Thanks for the warranty information. That's what I had thought, but I've seen a newer Elige or two listed with crazy long warranties and wasn't sure how they'd managed that.

Congrats again, and enjoy driving it.
