Elise, BRG/AW/CO, $34k, Pittsburgh PA

I am looking to purchase an Elise within my budget of 34k. I am located near Pittsburgh PA but I have no issues shipping the car from across the country if need be. I havenít found any on the market in the past few months which is why I decided to make this WTB post.

Must have all recalls done, have a clean title and be mechanically and cosmetically in good shape.

Touring package preferred
Mileage: <60k
Paint Color:
- Chrome Orange
- British Racing Green (not LRG)
- Aspen White

Desirable Mods:
- Baffled Oil Pan
- Toe link upograde
- Aluminum radiator
- Any of the shifter kits
- suspension upgrade (Nitron or similar)
- Aftermarket exhaust

I found this one for sale (06 aspen white) :

https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invent...ting=231902491

I emailed about the car and got a pretty generic response. I don't get the feeling they know much about Elises.

Two things jump out to me just from looking at the photos.

1.) The headlight condensation. How big of an issue it this? How common is this?

2.) The wheels look either dirty or pitted from brake dust.

Either way with shipping that is likely a $35k car. Anyone have any thoughts about it?

Mileage is just above the range you;re looking for, but otherwise close--and could deal within your budget.
You can contact me at EASY @ ML1Media . com (remv spaces).

Bumping this to the top. Only a few orange have popped up and even less white. BRG seems to be a unicorn which is a shame because that's the one I really want. Historically it doesn't look like many have been for sale so I'm guessing that color is actually quite rare compared to the others. Oh well, the search continues!

Talking to a seller and it sounds like they are not familiar with the oil line recall. Does the front clam have to be removed to verify the lines? How much does it cost to replace the lines generally? I'm guessing if the clam needs removed this would add a good amount to a PPI cost. Is this a deal breaker?

If you contact Lotus with the VIN they can tell you if the recall has been done. Might be other recalls depending on the year.
