  2. Lotus Elise
    I have a 2011 elise which has the trunk release behind the drivers seat. I go to pop the trunk today and the trunk won't open when I lift the lever. I had someone pull the lever while I try to wiggle the trunk, no luck. I also tried applying some up force while the lever was pulled, no luck...

    Looking for a clean title Elise or Evora. Spec doesn't matter, as long as the price is right. Up to 50k budget, but preferably looking for a good value car around 35k.
  4. Lotus Elise
    have a problem with the Lotus Elise CR, when passing a corner with a small radius with speed on the edge, the steering wheel starts to jerk intermittently and it seems to me that the front wheel / wheels slow down even with the jerk. It only happens to me in a situation where I drive without a...

    I’ve been looking around for a better sound system for my new Elise. I had the idea of setting my Bose Resolve speaker on that cubby behind by seat. It actually sounds really good! You can invert them cone so that it sits deeper in the area if you want to. Anyway just thought I’d mention it.
  6. Lotus Elise
    I'm thinking of shaving the signals on my Elise. I think the signals don't fit in with the lines of the car at all, and they're the only design feature I've never really cared for. After spending a few hours this morning looking at potential relocation options, I feel like putting amber lights...

    I saw this chart posted by a member in an older thread. My speeds at the given RPMs seem lower than this. Is this chart correct?
  10. Parts Wanted
    Since the re-introduction of the Micro Mirror doesn't have a set timeline, I am hoping someone on here has one they may be willing to part ways with or another similar option. My OEM mirror, aside from being way too big, is very worn out at the ball and socket and shifts its position driving...

    Hey all. My name is Jade and I’ve enjoyed the forum for six years now. It’s been a great resource for tracking down a lug key and switch pack. My ‘05 Elise has spent way too much time covered in my garage!
  12. Lotus Elise
    Was thinking of getting the signals shaved on my Elise at some point, but it would be nice to keep the original clam just in case. Is there any aftermarket retailer selling a front clam that has been manufactured with the seam filled in and the turn signals shaved? I know there are potential...
  13. Lotus Elise
    I just recently purchased a 2005 Elise, and when doing the test drive, I realized that with the top on, I could not adjust the interior rear view mirror to the point that I could look out of the back window. I'm a fairly tall guy, and when looking at the mirror, I end up seeing too low down in...

  16. Lotus Elise
    thinking of not selling my elise and just refinancing so i can keep it and actually do what i’ve always wanted to with it, ( turbo and/or k swap, widebody). Not to mention the elise going out of production and the prices being expected to rise in the next few years is a big motivator for keeping...

    When I was 11 my Dad bought me a diecast 2003 Saffron Yellow Elise. It got stuck in a corner somewhere and I barely gave it any thought while I salivated over Audis, then Mustangs, then Subarus. By the time I was old enough to drive on my own I pulled the old model out of its hiding spot and...

    Hi all, still looking to purchase a pair of used Elise seats in black. Runners not needed - just the seats themselves. Looking for leather in good condition; if the padding is a little squashed that's ok. Thank you!

    A gent in my area is selling his single owner, 24k Elise SC for 40k. Dealer serviced and looks to be in great condition. I’ve done my research and have an opinion but would love to hear what others think.
