After many years of wanting a Lotus (I still have grainy Elise jpegs from 1997 on my computer, lol), I'm ready to pull the trigger. I'm very particular with what I want, so it seems somewhat difficult to find the exact car that I'm looking for. That's why I'm here.
Basically, here is my lengthy list of desires:
*06-~08 Elise, although probably more towards 06MY
*Low miles (less than 20K, the lower the better)
*No heavy track use
*Bonus points for Star shield
*Bonus points for Limited Slip Differential
*Bonus points for exhaust
*Supercharger is OK if it is Lotus OE type
*Light mods are OK, but I'd like to have a car that is mostly stock
My biggest issue is color. I don't really care for Red, Yellow, Black or Silver, which I think must be 80% of the cars. I don't like black wheels, which I think must be another 5%. BRG, LRG or dark blue with silver wheels would be my first choice. I'm going for more of a classic look than a "hey look at me" color, although I do like the Chrome Orange and I could potentially be sold on the bright lime green. I'm most fussy about the color, since that is the only thing I can't really change and I'll probably keep the car for a long time.
As for price range, I'm willing to pay a fair price based on other transactions that I've seen.
I'd also consider an 08 SC if it is priced for a quick sale.
