There is a good chance I will be moving to Texas for a new job, so I wanted to see if anyone is interested in my Elise. If it doesn't sell, then I'll just drive/ship it with me :)

62,400 miles
Factory Supercharge Installed
Clean Title
Brand New Dunlop Direzza ZII
$28,700


Purchased as 3rd owner in July 2013. Arctic Silver with cloth black interior, sport pack, factory supercharger installed. Additional performance upgrades include LETSLA shifter, Titan steering rack, and Sector 111 rear toe link brace. Interior upgrades include Kenwood Heat unit with blue tooth and sirius radio, and K40 laser defense system integrated into the cluster (very cool actually). Oil line recall performed including new oil coolers. The body is a 9.9/10 including zero scraping on the front clam. I immediately installed the SirLotus front under clam protectors to preserve this condition. Installed using 3M adhesive tape which is cleaner than the bonding agent.

The rear clam was backed into by the previous owner's neighbor. According to the PO, the damage was pretty minor, but Symbolic Motors elected to replace with a brand new clam. Fine by me.

The front clam is also 100% perfect because Galpin Motors (The lotus dealer who performed the oil line recall) damaged the front slats of the clam from the inside while working on the car. Mulholland Motorsports did an amazing job repairing it and it has a brand new star shield.

I'm going to take it to A1 in San Gabriel to get an oil change and have Harry look over it. I've only driven it about 100 miles since the last time he had it for an alignment and the new tires.







I have all of the records in an Excel spreadsheet as well as hard copies. All of the records I have including parts instructions and the clean title in its envelope from the DMV pictured below. The vast majority of the records are from the second owner. He purchased it from Lamborghini of Chicago at around 25k miles.

With how popular they are in Texas I would just drive it down, I'm sure you would find a local purchaser here.

GLWS, beautiful car!

If you want to be able to uncork the power of your Lotus, Texas is better. If you can plug in a scanner once a year, you can pass inspection!
Some people love Houston...
but it does sound like a nice problem to have. Good luck!
