Low Miles 05-06 Elise Wanted

Looking for a 2005-06 low miles (under 30k mi) metallic blue or grey/silver Lotus Elise. Prefer with Touring/Sport. Must have completely clean title. Will consider other colors. Might be willing to ship it to my location (Southern California) if it passes independent inspection. But, of course, I would like to find the car locally. I will pay Fair Market Value.

This one up near buffalo New York is a great deal. I almost bought it but preferred the grey/red combo. No other association but the dealer is meant to be outstanding. Good luck!

Thass, PM me, I saw that one, but just assumed that since the post is so old that it would no longer be available. Looking into it now. Thanks!

You must be newer. Can't PM until you've had at least 5 total posts. You've got two already. Replying to this one, chiming in on the Hi, I'm new here - LotusTalk - The Lotus Cars Community thread is good as well, and then I'm sure you can find something to post. You can even throw one on my For Sale thread. Thank you!

My magnetic blue '05 is immaculate with 8,000 miles on it. It's not for sale, I love it and don't want to sell but everyone's got a price, I'd let it go for upper 40s.

I purposefully omitted listing my price range to avoid people negotiating on this post. If you have a listed vehicle that you are actively trying to sell, please feel free post it. If you are trying to sell for 20k above value an "off-market" car, please do not post here. haha.

I definitely prefer blue, grey, or silver. Not looking for super bright colors yellow, orange, red, etc. Definitely PM me if you have a vehicle that meets my specs!

As I've gotten older, it is more and more difficult to fall in and crawl out of the Elise; (on my last birthday, I found myself closer to 80 than 70!).

Good to hear from another SY fan. In 2005, I thought it might be too loud a color but it grows and grows on you.

Awesome! The age thing is my only fear too. That is the worst bullet about the car. At least we got the best 13 yrs out of them so far! Wow, 13 yrs...

And yellow fits these cars perfectly.... its a Super Car color.

From your description, it looks like I have exactly what you are looking for - minus the fact that I live in Chicago. Pictures are from yesterday as I sent them to a dealer on a different car I might trade this in for.

2005 Lotus Elise
15,431 miles as it currently sits
Graphite Grey
Touring Package
Sport Package
Starshield
Hard and soft top
Tool Kit
Car Cover

Here is the listing for the car when I bought it: 2005 Lotus Elise

Just put tires on (have less than 200 miles on them)

$35k and she is yours. I am not hurting to sell, just entertaining the thought of other cars.

I bought a few other things from this forum a few years back that never got put in - like the all black instrument cluster with plexiglass https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f95/...-faces-208033/
and sector 111 shifter kit.

Car is unmolested - I have owned the car 4 years and have had no issues.


PM me if you are serious.
