(This email contains a price drop)

Completed service at Euromotorcars Lotus in Bethesda, MD including:

Inspection as part of 7,500mi. service
Oil change
New spark plugs
Renewed: Brake and clutch fluid, coolant and transmission fluid

It was identified that the front Toyo R888 tires (date code 2008) should be replaced.

In light of completing the service, the tires, and my desire to sell the car I will reduce my asking price to $35,000.

Bump for a great seller. I purchased my first Elise from Todd back in 2006. Car was super clean and Todd was great to deal with
