1991 Red Lotus Elan M100 for sale-$13,500

Selling my M100 for $13,500 with 109,000 miles. This is my third M100 and I am in no rush to sell. My wife and I drive the car weekly. It is garaged kept next to her cousin the Esprit. This is by far my best driving M100 out of the three that I have owned. The turbo is very strong, brakes have plenty of life left, clutch and gears are smooth. The car is mostly stock with the exception of paint, muffler, and rim/tire upgrade. Not sure how many prior owners. I have owned it for a year and a half. If you are local I encourage you to come see it in person and take it for a spin. It recently received the following:

Synthetic oil and K&N oil filter (last month)
Ignition module
Coil packs
Light weight 17' Team Dynamic rims (I have a fifth rim as an extra with no rubber)
Air filter conversion ( I have the stock air box which can easily be switched back)
New MSD plugs
New radio
Custom Lotus hood liner
Lotus floor mats
Short shifter (I have the original shifter)
Car was recently painted with original color (three months ago)
Aftermarket muffler
All lights are fixed and in working order
Front lip spoiler
Older Lotus Elise steering wheel (needs to be installed)

I have a bin with extra parts that goes with the car as I have no time to replace. Three little active kids will do that to you. It recently won second place in a local British car show. To be completely transparent, it is a driver, very presentable, but not perfect. It needs a little more TLC to get it to the next level. Here are a few items that I wanted to address but will leave it up to the new owner:

I recently cracked the left side mirror. It stays put but would need to be replaced
Could use A and B pillar seals
AC needs to be charged
Top is in good shape but has a small crack in the plastic window which is about an inch long
The turbo, battery, and oil pressure gauge/cluster is not working (could be fuse related)

Again, the car is not perfect but is a fantastic driver. It will be posted on other Lotus sites/forums. It is located in Bergen county NJ. Feel free to PM me with any questions. I have plenty of pictures as well.
