any other pic's wanted, or other info needed? Pics too big? this car has been babied, and gently driven as it was my daily driver. Synth oil every 3k, new air filter on last checkup, first set of new front pads at about 12k, rotors in great shape. You could call Ray or Richie at Silver Star concerning how the car has been taken care of...it's tight. I've been over every nut and bolt to make sure it's safe and reliable.

Maybe I missed it in your listing. But what stock options does it have? Touring Package? Sport Package? I am going to assume it doesn't have the limited slip diff.

It has the sport package, touring package, starshield, and correct that no limited slip. I'm going to take some more pics tonight of the exhaust/grille angle and engine bay. Missed that the first time around. And I believe I've still got the window sticker, so will put that up too.

SOLD to PSX 1000!!! The gentleman that bought the car will no doubt be a frequent Lotus board member, and a true enthusiast. I'm going to miss that car a lot, but it's good to know that the next owner will enjoy it for what is was built for and appreciate its' unique qualities.

Hey Mark,

Congrats on the sale! I have to say that my heart sank a little because I was really hoping that car would be sitting in my garage!

You're a good guy though. Thanks for answering all my questions.

I'm going to try and get my car to look as similar to yours as possible.

PSX you are a lucky guy!
