2006 sport elise suspension

What suspension comes on the 2006 Sport Elise? Is it LSS or track pack(or something else)?

I have the sport package and it has the Lotus Sport Suspension which is stiffer non adjustable Bilsteins.

The real Sport Elise (the limited edition yellow w/ titanium stripes) had adjustable supsension. It wasn't LSS.

What I'm looking for is info on the "Sport Elise", as opposed to an Elise with sport package.

Go to the rear suspension section of the service manual and look at the "supersport" suspension section. That's what the Sport Elise had although the manual says it had adjustable Bilsteins and I think the cars were actually delivered with 2 way adjustable Ohlins.

So, in other words, it has the track pack suspension?

Ohlins, remote reservoir, double adjustable. Ohlins springs specifically for this model, i.e. spring rate isn't as stiff as the track version of these shocks. 5 way adjustable front anti-roll bar.

FYI, Track pack is single adjustable bilstein. Sport and cup cars are another step up and should be the ohlins double adjustable... as additional FYI there are no less than 3 variations of the Ohlins with different spring rates and valving depending on the car from 2002 rover powered elises to the supercharged exiges... and most shops and dealers (even some pretty well known ones) DON'T know which spec sheet (for recommended settings) goes with which cars so they'll hand you the settings sheet for a rover powered elise and it's just not correct. It's not intuitively labeled. I was in a thread where it took a few rounds, but it is spelled out what goes with what.
