2005 Elise - BOE Torque 200 Tune - Magnetic Blue - Carbon Fiber Interior - NorCal - 4

2005 Elise - BOE Torque 200 Tune - Magnetic Blue - Carbon Fiber Interior - NorCal - 46k miles


2005 Lotus Elise – Touring Package
Magnetic Blue
46k Miles
Clean Title (no accidents)
Title in hand
Sacramento, California (car has FL plates and has not been registered in CA)
There should be no issues passing smog (if needed)

$32,000


Pros:
BOE Torque 200 NA Tune
Carbon Fiber Center Console
Carbon Fiber Side Sills
Carbon Fiber Accessory Panels
Carbon Fiber Front Splitter
Rear Panel Delete
Micro Mirror
2bular GT3 Exhaust
Sector 211 Lidbone
Hardtop + Soft Top (hardtop was originally orange but painted MB by one of the previous owners)
Pioneer Headunit (Bluetooth, Aux, USB)
Bazooka Subwoofer (behind seats)
Metal Retractable Cup Holder
Sector111 Battery Bracket
Relatively new plugs and coils
Factory starshield
Fire Extinguisher in passenger footwell (which I’m sure is a decade out of spec)
Rear pads replaced ~3 months ago. Fronts and all rotors are fine.
Unikey

Cons:
ABS Light is on 75% of the time. I think one of the sensors is bad (dirty?), but I really don’t know.
Some paint chips on the front bumper on the edge of the square where a license plate would go.
The BOE Tune causes a rough cold start sometimes. To avoid this, I will hold the start button for 0.5 seconds, let it go, and then hold it again for it to start right up. It’s a known tune issue and a non-problem, but a minor inconvenience.
The Tach and Speedo die sometimes when I hit a bump in the road. Usually they come back on soon after. This started after I reinstalled the ECU after the tune. I think the ECU isn’t seated perfectly. Doesn’t impact the performance of the car, you just lose those gauges for brief periods of time.
Some cosmetic damage to the wheels from a poor tire mounting job.

Other
Side windows and windshield are tinted
I’m the 3rd or 4th owner. Bought it off an LT member 3.5 years ago when it had 29k miles.
I’ve tracked it once, not sure what the previous owners did.
Oil Recalls were done a long time ago
AC works great
The small plastic panel that holds the start button and light buttons has a broken tab. I have a replacement, but haven’t put it in yet.
Included: all of the stock pieces that have been replaced by carbon fiber.


It has normal wear and tear for a car its age. Very tiny rock chips here and there, some seat wear, etc


Reason for selling: I want to move into an Exige.

Do you notice much difference with the N/A 200 tune? GLWS

I sent you an email and followed up today but haven't heard back. I'm local and looking to take a look at your car (preferably tomorrow if you're free). Let me know if the email isn't going through, my name's Peter. Thanks!

First off, beautiful car. I love the Magnetic Blue color, I wish I was ready to pull the trigger on an Elise but its not time yet for me. I will continue to lurk around until then.

Ive seen your car has been posted for a few months, have you attempted to correct some of the “Cons” you’ve listed? That may help you sell it quicker.

Thanks! I haven't really messed with the ABS light or Tach issue much, just wiggled some wires here and there without impact. The don't effect the performance as far as I'm aware so I haven't dealt with them in a serious manor. I agree though, it will move faster with those gone.
