No daylight pics yet. It went from the detail shop at night right into my garage. I did not upgrade the tranny gears. I took it easy on it and its been fine. People only seem to have an issue from excessively hard starts and abusive shifting. I once ran over a rubber possum (piece of blown of tractor trailer tire) and I had the front clam painted below the headlight seem then recovered in 3m. While they were painting that I had them repaint the rear below the seem and install star shield. Road sand had just made it look not great over time behind the wheel

Dang that is nice. Love the color. This is ok for street driving? A/C work or does that get removed as part of the BOE 400? Soft top only?

Its been great for street driving. Smooth and reliable. Only aggressive when you want it to be. Still has air-conditioning and it works great

This car will be off the market soon unless something crazy happens in the next 48 hours. OP has an amazing Elise that will be mine soon. Not a bad first post either.

Thanks to Ziker for being so accommodating throughout this process since we are both busy. I never thought Id be able to afford my dream car, but its mine and this is so surreal.
