UPDATE:
- Rear tires a-ok. Driver side tire had re-pairable nail puncture. 1/2 life left on tires dated 2010 (or 2-3 years)
- Front tires are original (dated 2005). Will knock off $575 to replace but since they still look great, speaks volumes about how this car has been cared for.
- New trunk carpet and insulation arriving Friday so removed those notes from original post
- Blinker issue being repaired next week. No biggie, just a faulty hazard light switch.
- Getting oil changed next week as well.

Aside from the front clamshell curb scuffs that came with the car when bought it, this car is now immaculate for a 2016 with only 20k miles!

Nightfall blue - my favorite color. You don't mention if the hard top and soft top are both included.

Sorry perhaps my post could have been clearer. I listed them as options included but put them under the HISTORY section. Will move to it's own section.

Also posting new pics tonight. Noticed bug splatter making paint look chipped in these pics. Just got the oil changed today!

Thanks!

So bear with me here as I really am trying to help. Notes posted above in red inline. GLWS.

Feedback Response

Thanks for the feedback Oldmansan couple of quick replies in CAPS

UPDATE:
- Rear tires a-ok. Driver side tire had re-pairable nail puncture. 1/2 life left on tires dated 2010 (or 2-3 years) Not sure how you've repaired a nail puncture. For a performance car I replace the tire(s). Tires dated 2010 are 8 years old.
THIS IS AN AREA I'M WILLING TO NEGOTIATE, I'VE ALREADY PUT SEVERAL HUNDRED INTO OTHER FIXES TO GET THE CAR IN CLEAN WORKING ORDER SO REALLY DON'T WANT TO KEEP GOING OUT OF POCKET AT THIS POINT.
- Front tires are original (dated 2005). Will knock off $575 to replace but since they still look great, speaks volumes about how this car has been cared for. 13 year-old tires on a performance car should have been replaced long ago IMHO.
SURE, BUT THE REASON IT ONLY HAS 20K MILES AND THE REASON I'M SELLING IT IS BECAUSE I RARELY DRIVE IT. JUST BEING 100% TRANSPARENT ABOUT ALL KNOWN ISSUES.
- New trunk carpet and insulation arriving Friday so removed those notes from original post I'd update this item when done.
FINISHED LAST NIGHT
- Blinker issue being repaired next week. No biggie, just a faulty hazard light switch.I'd update this item when done.
FINISHED THIS WEEK.
- Getting oil changed next week as well. I believe you just did this. I'd update this item.
FINISHED THIS WEEK.

Aside from the front clamshell curb scuffs that came with the car when bought it, this car is now immaculate for a 2016 with only 20k miles! Car is a 2006, correct?
YES JUST A TYPO

THANKS!

Just ordered new front tires that match the Yokohama's in the rear (front sized of course). Will have installed by next week! (week of July 16th)

Also getting hard top headliner replaced, it's sitting at the shop now and will also be done next week.

The only thing left to note is the scuffs and small crack under the front clam which are fairly typical of an Elise. Otherwise she's in tip top shape and ready for her new home!
