    One more addendum The last few days, I've had more texts messages (my phone number sourced from the original ebay listing) from more people than I can count and keep track of. I've received some very good offers, but I've been hesitant to commit to anything until I had this...

    PRE PURCHASE INSPECTION RESULTS!! Okay, so made a visit to Lotus of West Covina for an ECU dump and Pre-Purchase inspection for the benefit of the many that have contacted me privately. Results are as follows: The tech's name is Aiden (IIRC) and he is competent and detailed. He's been a...

    Thanks to all for all the rather good advice. Tirefriar, yeah, I'mm working with Pro Italia. I've hit all the Triumoph dealers in SoCal, and those guys have been the best by far and they're the closest to me, so huge bonus there. They've even been throwing me leads on the Lotus sale. The...

    Thanks Monsta! (Good to see you back on here - I know I've been away awhile, but I seem to recall you being scarce for awhile too).

    Okay, closing in on the end of the ebay auction and I'm getting tons of response, healthy bidding and various offers. My BIG concern is fraud. What is the safest way to accept payment? How secure are cashier's checks these days? What sort of things should be sending up a red flag?

    Lotus Cars For Sale
    I think that somewhere in that 2005-2008 era, Ferrari had actually broken 5000 units (worldwide at least - and in the US, people were buying them with home equity loans! D'oh!), and I know that Elise sales during that era were something like 2200 for 2005, 1800 for 2006 and things fell off...

    Weekend Bump! ...and the answer to the question as to why I'm selling. I'm just trying to simplify and add lightness. So it's either going to be this (sticking with my strictly British habit):

    Lotus Cars For Sale
    I got the seats at approximately 40k miles, so I'm guessing 83K miles. I think the fact that it was garaged and not assaulted with UV might be contributing factors. Plus my Jaguar E-type mechanic always said I had an unusually high sense of mechanical sympathy. I never put physical stress on...

    Lotus Cars For Sale
    From my garage to yours! So it's lived indoors its whole life. I only let it out for really long drives along the California coast and through Arizona and Nevada. Somewhere along the way it acquired a paint chip on the driver's side wheel well along with some black schmutz. Remove the...

  15. $234 for ECU dump at Galpin!!

    Maintenance and Repairs.
    -eek- $234 for ECU dump at Galpin!! -eek- That's what I was just quoted by e-mail. What kind of glue are they sniffing over there? I haven't been back since they tried to rob me of over $400 for an alternator belt change (Which ultimately cost me $60 for the part and took me 15 minutes)...

    Lotus Cars For Sale
    Well I'll probably start with a 'Buy it Now' of $28K on ebay with a 'Make Offer' option and see how it plays out. There's a certain threshold where it's just worth keeping. My main goal in this is to simplify and add lightness, which in this case means a 2006 Triumph Bonneville T100.

    Lotus Cars For Sale
    17K is salvage title money. I know 30k is optimistic to say the least, but I look at it this way: I'm seeing base model bone stock Elises, middle 5 figure mileage turn for ~$34k. So let's put a $10K mileage penalty on mine, add a hard top, highly desirable LSS wheels, fairly new sport seats...

    I saw high mileage Elises go for mid 20s before the upturn in value. I'll have to see what the market will bear. Lost of extras on this, and frankly it shows better than a lot of cars with 1/3 the miles, especially the interior. I did most of the oil changes myself (roughly every 3-4K miles...
