Thanks 3carmonte,

So as long as any battery is Group 35, it'll fit?

BTW, PepBoys doesn't have anything for the 2006 Elise, AutoZone doesn't even have the car available as an option.

Your car is a 2011. The Pro Clip that's available to purchase on that website lists 2012 and newer. Are you sure it will fit your car? I haven't ordered because of that concern.
