Cool!
How did you drop off 100+ lbs? Wheel changes? Lots of power too, that thing must be unbelievably fast!

I used to be proudly stock, but then a LETSLA and some slotted Utradiscs and some Pagid blues and some 3M Crystalline...and I know it's only going to get worse (particularly if I keep reading about 325hp monsters).

4 years of happy daily driving!

Show us your oil temperature guage! How is the sender installed? Was it a diy or did a shop install for you?

Just picked it up 2 weeks ago 750 miles from home. My wife and I drove 26 hours total in less than two days. 13 hours to the dealership in my Toyota FJ Cruiser (trade-in), and 13 hours back home in the Elise. We left the dealership with only 4,500 miles on the odo. It didn't take long before I had it up on jack stands changing things up a bit (de-snorkled, K&N filter, powder coated wheels/rear diffuser, black rock guard). Next up is a FF front lip spoiler I'm waiting on which I'll probably paint red to match the car.

The black wheels make that red look just great (I did a similar thing w/my BRG Elise).

I'll snap a picture of the gauge in the car later(Or you can take a look on the BWR website, it has the gauge bracket).

The Moroso oil pan has a bung for the oil temperature sensor.
