I have owned the car for about 11 years. Runs excellent. Clean title. Just had a full inspection done at Southbay Autohaus Hawthorne, CA and have paperwork. The only modification is the wheels. Rota Slipstream wheels.

location is Chino Hills, California

Sounds like a great "starter Elise" for someone that has been on the fence. Price is very good for a nice looker with clean title.. GLWS

Not sure if that’s a compliment or not. I guess by “starter Elise” you mean because it’s mostly stock? ?

Not really meant as a slight at all. Several people here express interest in getting an Elise, but don't want to pay a higher price... for low mileage or whatever.. At 81K miles, may need some stuff due to wear, but completely useable. If something wears, you have saved on purchase price to get a "mod" you may want. I say that as so many with clean title ask @ 30K.., but with a bit lower mileage.

A very round about way of saying if all checks out, great price!

Looks like a great Elise. Minimal mods and an appropriate amount of miles for its year of origin with recent complete inspection and no significant problems to report. This Elise appears to have been consistently driven and maintained. 80,000 on the clock for a Toyota engine is just getting started. It looks like a lucky find for a prospective buyer. Good luck with the sale! ?

Exactly this. The Elise is a wonderful toy, but easily hard to justify paying at minimum 30k+ for something not ideally useful all the time. The Exige even more so for any example above 50k+. But below that respectively for either of them, and it's a really attractive offer for somebody wanting to dip their toes.

If I personally didn't already have my Alfa or 3 Miatas, I'd totally be flying in to drive this beauty home. Nothing like an NA Elise to park next to my supercharged Elise for a different driving experience. The NAs are fun in their own right, much like a stock S2K with it's pronounced dual power band.

You lose some of that with a supercharger, but it's not like having steady torque all over isn't fun in it's own right. Exciting offering for sale.

Yea I saw that. A small fender bender or something must have happened before I bought the car. I don’t see anywhere it could have happened. The car is flawless.

When did you buy the car? The auto report shows that the accident occurred after purchase by the current owner. How many owners have there been?
