Why to make the switch... 2008 Elise SC

Just came across this ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDf9YEnIUFQ

I get my first SC cars in less than a month. I can't wait to take one out for a spin or two.

My most favorite car! I wish I wasn't a starving college student, I'd so buy one. If any rich people want to buy me one you know where to reach me (jk). Well pretty much all I can say is its an amazing car and you are one lucky man. I want to take it for a spin too.

He may have been referring to the guy in the video and not the OP.

That almost looks like English White (or whatever that color was called) but I know it's just the low quality of the picture.

Sorry. Cell phone shot They have a CO one, too.


I'm still on the fence about the "wing". It looks good, but I question the functionality and added weight. I think the GUT wing looks 5 times better.

To go another $30K in debt (assuming you are trading in a 05/06 elise)?!?!?!?!!

Then when the gov't bails out the auto loan industry, I get my SC paid for!!!!! Thank you Mr. Bush and failing economy!!!!

The Elise SC is too heavy. It now weighs 34,000 pounds!

haha - funny, i actually remember that streach of road!

great link - good find, put that down as one of the better car reviews i have seen - i love the "pointing hand, zoom in, and thumbs up" funny! - very well done. good info - if hes right in confirming its sensosoft (was my guess) then you used to be able to buy that in the can at BMW dealers - should anyone have the inclination....

"...swishing along at quite a rate"

I like one with SC. My issue is that mine is an 07 with low miles so I will lose a ton of money if I trade. Probably better of getting and aftermarket SC from a $$ perspective
