2006 Solar Yellow Lotus Elise
Location: San Antonio, TX
Title: Clear - Have a loan against it, so it may show up with a lien.
History: 2 minor accidents - Both minor body damage, both replaced with oem parts. Accident 1 was semi truck which gave me a love tap in traffic. Accident 2 was driver who invaded lane and hit passenger door. Entire door was replaced. Besides that this was a daily driver, mostly highway miles. Never tracked besides one drag race in 2010. I bought the car used with 2000 miles on it. Previous owner was a San Antonio Spurs player, or so the Lotus Dealership people told me. Wouldn't tell me who though. If any of you can find that out with the VIN I'd love to know.
Reason Selling: Recently purchased a Tesla Model 3 to transport growing family and now have one too many cars to fit in driveway and garage. It's been a garage queen for the last two years.
New stuff Recently:
Installed new clutch, has about 300 miles on it
Installed new oxygen sensors before and after cat last month
Changed out brake fluid last month
Stuff that's wrong
Temperature sensor is throwing a code. Will probably replace sensor soon if I have no takers for it.
Driver's Side seat is a little worn down, see pictures below
Interior light behind seats keeps popping out.
Missing one screw on gas cap cover. (drives me nuts)
Grey area stuff
The one time I drag raced it the OEM battery tipped over and spilled acid into the trunk. I've since cut out the damaged fiberglass, replaced with sheet metal and heat shielding and put in a sealed deep cycle battery which is now mounted and zipped tied down so that will never ever happen again.
Asking $20k, we can put it into escrow until loan company releases title which should take one or two days.
Possible added bonus: If you live in Texas and like the plates I may be able to transfer them over to you (I have the state issued "ELISE" custom black star plates as well). I've heard transfer is possible, just have to confirm. The plates are paid through and reserved until 2021 I believe.
