I totaled my lovely little 2005 Elise, insurance paid it out and it sold on auction yesterday 10/16/2013 in Houston Texas.
The car has almost nothing wrong with it.. a 2 inch ding in the aluminum tub underneath, halfway between the two front wheels (hit a curb). The performance shop i took it to said they could weld a bit of aluminium plate over it with no problems.. (though they didn't think there would be a problem leaving as is)
Additionally i also had the alignment laser checked at a specialty shop they said it is 100% geometrically aligned. So.. while it is totaled per Insurance company/Lotus, the car is still in perfect condition less that ding.
The car is Turbo charged and goes like stink.. I'll add the link to the posting from which i bought it.
Such a sad sad day..
