Awesome! Yeah, the splitter tends to scrape a lot, so I have black door trim around it. Each time it scrapes, I am glad it was a $5 piece rather than the front clam. The flipside is that it scrapes more often because it is there in the first place, so there's that...

Make sure you also check in with Welcome | NoVA Lotus Club from time to time to see what the group is planning. There are several of us in the area. Funny enough, I actually lived near Detroit before Virginia, so I know that drive pretty well! Heck, I'll be up there for Thanksgiving but in the daily.

I hear a lot of people complaining about getting in and out. I don't have that problem. Literally takes me half a second to get in and one full second to get out. But I'm only 5'8" 146lbs.

I'm 6'1" 215lbs and it's just as quick and easy for me. Once you're used to it, it's easy.

+1

At 5'10" 150lbs I fit great and can get in and out easily ... unless I am getting in or out of the passenger seat. Definitely sets me back a few seconds, haha

Hey Habious,
Sorry to hear about your Roadster, but congrats on your '11 Elise w/REV300. I picked up my '11 SC in Sept from Austin and drove it home as well.

I'm out in the Gainesville area off 66. Some good roads out here off Rt 55, and back roads in The Plains to Middleburg, and over the "mountain."

Nice to hear someone else is driving theirs everyday. Pic from yesterday running errands (dog food and post office). Hope to see you around NoVa!
