ujackleg Thank you all for responding. I went over to lotus90's to see his Lotus. It's very nice by the way. No problem reaching the pedals or seeing clearly.

ERP - I know i fit OK now, so thank you for the offer and i'm sorry to hear about your experience with the Porsche dealer. I guess that's why we all want Lotus! I'll keep an eye out for you up North here.

Take care guys... hopefully i'll be joining the club soon!

ERP I'm also in the Springs (north east side) and I'm happy to let you sit in my Elise. Back when I was looking for mine I went to the Porsche dealership in the Springs because they had two Elises on the lot, but they would not let me sit in them. It severely pissed me off.

My wife is 5' 3" and she drives the Elise without any problems. She's even auto-crossed it once.

ujackleg Thank you guys for the quick replies!

Doug_porsche - Heading up to FOD was going to be my last resort, wasn't sure if they'd be OK with me just heading up there to sit in one. Do the new ones have the same seating positions? Thank you for the reply.

Lotus90 - I'll attempt to PM you with my info... Given you're in the Springs too i'd love to head over. Thanks.

lotus90 I live in Colorado springs and you can sit in mine if you like

doug_porsche I am in Denver/Golden and you are Welcome to set in mine. Or you can go to FOD, ask for Steve and let him know I sent you, and you can probably set in one of theirs. This would save you MANY miles

Need help in Colorado Springs / Denver

Hey all, first post... long long time lurker. My finances have finally allowed me to become very serious about buying an Elise. I haven't driven an Elise since '05 and i can't for the life of me remember how well i fit. I'm a 5'4" male and i need to know if i'm comfortable in the seat before i seal the deal with someone across the country. Would anyone in the area be willing to let me sit in the driver seat? No need to drive... just sit. I'd appreciate any help greatly. I'd love to talk Lotus with you as well!

I've read many posts about women who are 5'1" and struggle, but it's going to be personal to each person's body type.

Thanks guys, hopefully talk to someone soon!

I'm located in the Colorado Springs/Monument area.
