I’ve owned this Elise since 2011, but due to travel and other factors I almost never drive it now. It’s currently in storage and only driven a couple times a year, which means it’s time to sell it.

Lotus Racing Green exterior, tan interior
Multivex mirrors (really nice to have and not made anymore)
Shorai Lithium battery w/ charger, Sector111 battery bracket and disconnect.
Sector111 “bootie” trunk organizer
Speakers replaced by previous owner, using “Jim Clayton rings”
Stereo head unit replaced (have original if wanted), but faceplate was damaged so it will need a new one
Blower resistor replaced in 2017, with relocation kit to prevent future issues
Radiator replaced with all-aluminum one in 2017
Carbon fiber front splitter - scraped up; serves as a sacrificial surface to protect clam since the car’s so low.
Scrape (through clearcoat, not through paint) on driver’s side near front wheel well
Front clam damaged and replaced by Dietsch Werks in 2011
Driver’s side door electric actuator needs replacement

Located in SF Area (currently in storage, so need advanced notice to access)

Hi,

BEAUTIFUL Elise. LRG+Tan is my favorite combo Lotus has ever made.

A few questions:
1. Is the mileage on the odometer in the last set of photos roughly current
2. What is the status of the title after the minor repair?
3. Have recall issues been addressed?
4. I presume there is no matching hard top, correct?

Thanks and if this doesn't work out for me, GLWS. Again, absolute beauty.

1. Mileage is within a few miles of current. It was driven to storage after the pictures were taken, so another ~2 miles probably.
2. Title is clean, it wasn't totaled or anything.
3. I haven't taken it to a dealer for a long time, so I'm not 100% sure. It definitely has the revised non-breaking shift lever. The HVAC pan drain holes were done a bit too late, so the resistor corroded, but that's been replaced with the relocation kit to prevent future issues. Oil cooler hose has not been done (and I've not been notified about eligibility for it), although when I had it apart about a year ago the lines looked like they were in good shape.
4. Correct, one soft-top only and no hardtop.
