I was finally able to import a Series 1 Elise. It's 25th "birthday" was in mid November and it arrived from England the first week of December. It is a one-owner car with 22K miles. It needs a little bit of work, but things are progressing nicely.
I have a British, 2002 K series elise, which I decided to upgrade by installing a reconditioned VVC head, and with the Piper solid cam conversion, although I chose not to install vernier pulleys.
I have the 285H cams, and its running a stock ECU (for the time being).
