Being that the situation is the way it is for the Elise...I would like to be #1 on the used Elise list when people decide to sell their car used. Just keep me in mind...I'm at least a year out from being in the position to purchase one, but I figured I should start my search for a used one now!

brilliant idea....I bet you could sell the right to buy it at a fixed price at a set date in the future....:D

Until Lotus actually delivers a car, seems a bit premature to worry about used cars. ;)
****, people were worrying about buying new cars 5 years before they were built (and are still not built). Mostly sarcasm, but I might as well put my name out there for a used one now! Looks like I have some deposits to send out! :p

Here's a plan:

Let someone place a deposit to buy my used Elise. Say it won't be available until April '05. When late December rolls around, change the date to "late May/early June," and raise the price a little.

Then don't talk to the buyer from this point forward; instead, tell any updates to a friend of a friend of the buyer. In May, change the date to August. In June, change the date to September. Keep delaying every month thereafter...

:p

Sorry but I am NEVER selling mine, ever:D
Same here. I don't ever intend to sell it. And my kids are already planning on inheriting it.

But if someone insists on sending me a $1,000 deposit, I'll be happy to take it, given the conditions listed above. ;) ;)

I see you are located in Bremerton, WA. You may just want to get on....or should I say create that list at Park Place in Bellevue. I know they have a right of first refusal (at original MSRP) on anyone selling thier elise the first year who may have had the allusion of turning a quick buck. They evidently are making that part of thier sales contract at purchase. There was a previous thread on that under the heading (Park Place).
You're an aspiring attorney and could probably go round and round with them regarding the right of first refusal clause, however in this case it may be a benefit to you.

One of these days we'll need to divide up our territories. You know, to make sure we're not seen together. I figure that would be like showing up to a party in the same dress as the host.

I would like Issaquah-Fall City road all to myself, please.
