Got me a 2005 Elise.

Just got home this morning with my 2005 Elise Saffron yellow with sport and touring pack only had 9900 miles on it when I picked it up on Tybee Island near Savannah Ga and drove it 700 miles home to Ohio. It has been sitting out for several months so it really needs a good cleaning but I love it. This forum is a great source of information and proud to be an actual owner now.

Its funny you mention the gas station because I was paranoid after seeing the vid and i did have a close call with someone pulling into the gas station way to fast and came too close to taking out me and my open drivers door.
