2005 Storm Titanium Elise. Sale pending

Up for sale is my Elise. 18,000 miles on it! Always garaged. Lots of tasteful mods (at least I think so) including a Katana 2 supercharger, RAC monolite rims, nitron sport pro suspension (single adjustment), Larini 6inch exhaust and reverie rear diffuser. Having baby girl number 2 makes it a reality that I will need my garage space. Not gonna park the Lotus outside!...As you can see the miles are low because I never get to drive it!...I bought the Elise in 2008 from a dealer out in San Diego so I don't know all the history. I do know that all the safety recalls are up to date (done in San Diego). I can tell you that I have ZERO issues with it since I bough it. NO those are not my burn out marks on the asphalt. Just a cool spot for photos. 42 years old, mature spirited driving... It's what a Lotus Elise is for!...

Beautiful Elise, but looks closer to Storm Titanium than Graphite Grey in color. Must be the light. GLWS

Yeah, sure looks like ST, and this is from someone that has the same color.

You might want to specify what particular suspension you have (SA, DA and/or piston size) and it looks like you have the GB Composites carbon gas cap. Any other goodies you have you'd be wise to post up. GLWS.

Thank you San. Yeah I'll have to check out my box of receipts to be more specific on the goodies. I'm stuck at the fire station until tomorrow (March 6th) so stand by folks!...I figured that if someone is really interested they'll PM me.... At least that's what I'm hoping for!

You can find the paint code on the sticker on the inside of the sill next to the driver's seat.

Storm Titanium is B98
Graphite Gray is B108

Looks like ST to me.

Not meaning to pile on, but that also looks like Storm Titanium to me! GG is blueish I think.

I agree that looks like ST to me and definitely not GG.

Graphite is a much darker color. I have a Storm Titanium Evora and a Graphite Grey Elise. Here's a pic I snapped a week or so ago. It's kind of dark since I took it in the garage but you can definitely tell the difference.

Nice car by the way, good luck with the sell. Hope you'll find yourself in another Lotus in the future.

According to the chart in this link, B121 is the 2006 paint code for metallic storm titanium.

Katana + Nitrons + RAC's are worth 9k+ alone and generally considered must have mods.
