Funny, in pic #3 the golf R32 looks huge compared to the Elise and Miata! Thanks for posting the pics.

No problem. What are your thoughts on the R32 eliseowner2b? Heard it's a bit soft suspension wise.

Yeah, it is a little on the soft side. Ive got an Audi TT and stock it is soft as well. The R32 shares a lot with the TT so it seems fitting. It is however, the best VW i've ever been in. The exhaust note sounds very tuned. The owner of the R32 pictured has plans to change all that softness with the help of Bilstein and H&R.

Absolutely gorgeous...I think the Elise looks great in ANY color!!

Wish they'd do something about the cheesy LOTUS "stickies" on the back.

I agree, but stickers are the lightest!

I think it's funny to hear all of you complain about the LOTUS on the rear, because I believe it is there for US and not in the UK. Also, if the concern is about wear, do you think covering it with the clearbra material would work?

I don't think the UK'ers had any problem with the stickers wearing away. I also heard at the factory that they have started putting the stickers back on *all* the cars (Euro too) again because people complained about the badge on the back. I complained! The stickers look great. No one has a right to complain until they've seen a car in person!

Oh, right, I think I remember hearing how they started making them all with the letters now. I really like the letters, even if you use a super zoom macro lense to show they aren't perfect. It will make for a nice example when people ask who makes it, I'll be able to point and more my hand slowly over the letters as I say "Loooootuuusssss". It'll be fun.

BRP with Bsct interior

Don't put the plate in the front. It is impossible to keep it there.
Hence the four holes...

Wow it does look good. I went with BRP and black. Both look good.

Too bad about the front. What are you doing to repair it?

Well at least it won't rust! Maybe put on one of those made-for-that-location alloy plates embossed "Elise". I think they come with sill plates too for each door.
