2005 Lotus Elise Chrome Orange $26k

OFF THE MARKET, as of now, If my situation changes I will update this thread.
Hey guys,

Bought from previous owner on Lotustalk (Arizona) and car had some typical damage to the front clam at the license plate plinth area when I bought it.
See this thread for all details and pictures. https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f94...7k-obo-319970/
I have not had any mechanical issues and the engine/transmission have been running great.
Car on craigslist:
https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/...899527584.html


2005 Lotus Elise VIN: Sccpc11125hl30605
*Title in Hand
*Chrome Orange
*CLEAN TITLE
*116,XXX miles
*ECU and Oil Cooler recalls were done
*RLS Extendview mirrors
*Touring package, upgraded center leather console and side sills, with soft top only
*New wheels from 2006 Lotus Elise, 10k miles. Ad07 tires still have 85% tread left.
*3m Crystalline tint 50% all around, helps cut down heat tremendously
*Like new floor mats and side sill interior carpets from low mileage Elise
*Aftermarket? rear interior panel (firewall) covered in material, Never could figure out who made it but it's nice instead of the standard plastic. Maybe OEM just covered in fabric?
*Sector 111 light weight battery bracket
*Fire extinguisher behind seats
*B&M shifter upgrade (makes shifts tighter, like a bolt action)
*New radio (blue tooth, no cd) with new 4 new speakers, sounds great!
*New Paint Job in December 2016 due to front scrape damage and side skirt rock chips from previous owner
*New "Lotus logo" Paint protection film installed on front, side rockers, mirrors, and rear of car after new paint
*New front emblem and upgraded rear flat black "Lotus" letters
*A/C works good, and with tint it provides a comfortable ride during summer
*New bushings installed in 2017
*Brand new stock exhaust installed 2019 from a 2005 Elise (only had 5 miles on it)
*Air bag switch installed for child passengers
*Interior mood lighting is now orange instead of blue, switch is located on steering column.
*Extra sound deadening added to rear firewall behind seats.
*Oil just changed last month
*Thermostat/coolant changed to all metal after original failed a year ago.
*Aluminum HVAC floor covers removed to help air circulation in cabin (Mod to improve A/C efficiency), will include with sale.


The Bad
*Intermittent ABS light: common problem.
*Passenger leather door car insert (near window switch) has shrunk on the top edge and is pulling away slightly.
*Leather seats are worn especially the drivers seat, passenger seat has a small puncture on lower bolster (not very noticeable)
* Hair line Crack in clam located at the trunk about 2 feet long. It follows the edge of the trunk. This is not structural so I wasn't too worried about it. It is barely noticeable except for a 1 inch section.
*Two deep rock chips on lower rear side rocker panel. It cut the ppf and made a decent chip.
*Headlights could be refinished/replaced due to typical UV coating cracking/peeling. I haven't bothered with it yet.
*Visors taken off due to driver side bracket broke. So I just took off the passenger one as well. Will include in sale.

***Here you can see the crack in the trunk area. I couldn't see any light in the crack so Im not sure if it is all the way through or just the paint cracking. It is still very rigid and does not flex.

I've been on several drives with the seller and can vouch for him and the car. He's done an excellent job describing everything and this is a great opportunity for someone to get into a Lotus on a budget!
