Is this accurate information on the '08 Elise?

I edited the Wikipedia Article on the Elise and added a 2008 section. Please scroll down the article to read.


Is this information I added accurate? Is there any other important information I should add or anything I should omit?



Thanks...

You can probably just add it in another paragraph under the 111R section like they did for 2006

The supercharger isn't on ALL elises

It will be on all Federal Elises, right?


That's what I was going for. I suppose I could say that it will be on all Federal Elises and will be an option for European models or something...


Or will it be an option o Federal Elises as well?

I think $54,000 for the Elise SC and the same, $46,270 for the Elise...



HUGE jump

$8k for an already developed $3,500 supercharger kit? Sheeeeesh.. No wonder Proton has that company back in the black!

Hopefully it's not that expensive but, I'm pretty sure it is



If you look at the price independently of the base Elise, it's still an EXCELLENT DEAL for the performance you are getting.

Here you go, straight from Lotus:

The Elise S (not USA), Elise R ('Elise' in USA) and Exige S continue with enhancements detailed in this bulletin.
Due to very low demand, the naturally aspirated Exige will be built only for certain markets and to special order. All cars will now be equipped with dual airbags and an engine start button, with the fascia structure featuring a new charcoal grey matt finish. Option packs have been reconfigured as detailed in recent sales communications, with a new Performance Pack option available for the Exige S, providing 243 PS.
A new alarm system uses a bespoke Lotus branded transmitter key and a new instrument pack features additional functionality. To meet new legislation, USA models are fitted with low tyre pressure monitoring, and all cars benefit from enhanced 'CAN bus' diagnostics, and a revised body colour range.


Also, the LED taillights are different units which don't require ballasts.

I would put the weight in kg (lb) as it is previously in the article - also you have left out the Elise S (as in buzzy's Lotus release) which is the 134bhp base model Elise sold in other world markets.

If time permits I'll make some of the changes.

So the Exige is still available by special order? COOL!

OK, I don't know who edited it, but whoever did, you need to be more concise. Your edit is VERY wordy for an informational, strictly-objective article.

No offense, just my criticism.
