I wish it were my car But it's kinda hard driving something like that while you're still studying

It used to be my dads car but it was replaced by the Elise. Now don't get me wrong, I adore the Elise. But the Europa was special, it had the 'x-factor', even though driving it was...well slightly uncomfortable at 6 foot 4

Have a picture of it in an Elise crowd, hang on while I dig it up

That's great! It was a bit of a stretch financially, but I'm glad I was able to keep the Europa and get the Elise as well. Unfortunately, the Citroen had to go.

Too bad about the Citroen, but I think the Elise can fill the void left behind

The Europa is actually one of the reasons I still prefer the styling of the S1 Elise, the nose is so very similar

I agree. That's what I loved about the S1 Elise whan I first saw it. It is very much a modern Europa. But, I absolutely love the new design. I wouldn't mind having one of each! The Citroen will be missed, but it would just sit around with the 2 Lotus's in the driveway. it was a very unique car and an excellent ride, but there aren't too many mechanics who will work on these cars anymore. And Lotus parts are actually cheaper than Citroen parts.
