Clean title, still under factory warranty for almost a year, never tracked or raced, always garaged, Elise with appearance mods... the Elise/Exige is already a very distinctive car that gets a lot of attention but this car gets attention even in the company of other Elise/Exige cars! You gotta always have your hair done and dress well because you will be photographed and videoed a lot in this car, guaranteed.TADTS

Monaco white is non-metallic, flat white with clear coat:ST:

Car has the following mods::shift:

-black Rota Torque wheels 16" front 17" rear with 5Zigen caps
-Toyo R888 (195/50-16F & 225/40-17R)
-APR Adjustable carbon fiber wing
-carbon fiber front air dam
-Difflow 7 element diffuser
-Vision Function VF-R exhaust (sounds so good!) w/rear panel delete
-twin black vinyl racing stripes
-matching black/white leather ProBax seats, reupholstered with extra padding
-seat warmers with hi/lo setting (driver/pass., only Elise I know with this mod)
-yellow OEM tow hook up front to match Lotus nose emblem
-red anodized wheel valve stem caps
-interior wrapped in white leather (visors, door inserts, instrument console, center console, and all storage bins)
-80% tint on windows and front windshield strip
-Stant locking gas cap with 2 keys

Car has the following standard equipment::UK:

-carpeted floormats
-lined soft top
-Alpine stereo w/USB input and speakers (not the cheaper Blaupunkt)
-power windows, doors
-black instrument panel with white gauges (changed in 08)
-LED tail lights (looks like 4 rockets when lit, changed in 06)
-new sealed headlight design
-rear cargo net (part of the touring pack)
-Starshield
-integrated car key (x2) with alarm buttons (not like the 05 with the Cobra fob)
-Factory warranty until May, 2013! (Beat that!)
-Sport pack
-Touring pack (minus a few features, see below)

I have the factory rear panel and diffuser (black) as well.:D

Here is the official Purist Edition info release::drool:

Lotus Cars USA has announced the 2009 Lotus Elise Purist Edition, available for order immediately. The Purist Edition is an Elise built with the Sport Pack and everything from the Touring Pack except the iPod interface, leather-trimmed transmission tunnel, and leather door inserts.
Looking to sell but not desperate so please no lowballers. I honestly would have no problem keeping this car but have my eye on something else. If this sells, it sells, if not, then I will keep this car. Worse case scenario, I have a Lotus Elise to play with. Woe is me!:sad:

Test drives with cash in hand or certified bank draft from American banks. Western Union money orders printed on your home printer or United Bank of Nigeria checks not accepted.-poke-

Any questions, please ask. I probably forgot a few things and I will edit/update this post as I remember things.:mw:

Here's a video of the car before I added the door numbers. It's a vinyl sticker so you can remove it or keep it. I think it breaks up the slab side a bit from the profile.:bow:

What's the price??
$39,995.

But for you, I can have weekend special price if we do the deal today just so I can get it done.

ETA on July 22, Going in this coming weekend for some parts removal and corresponding price drop, but if you want all of the parts listed, I'll take the first serious offer right now... and by that, I mean, no offers where you can barely buy a decent 2007 and definitely none in the range that you can't even buy a high mileage 2005.

Update, car now has 7,830 miles. Also, here's a pic of it from the back showing the rear panel delete, exhaust, and 7 element Difflow Diffuser.

Registration just paid, good until May of 2013, same as your factory warranty, if you buy the car.

One lowballer. 2 okay offers, but still on the low side. And one offer that wouldn't get you an average condition 2005, which is not even high enough to consider low ball.

It's okay, I didn't expect a fast sale being this ain't the typical bone stock 2005 with 30-40k miles which can sell faster.

Seat warmers are aftermarket. Works awesome. I drive with the top down in winter and I sweat. The best thing to do with them is to turn it on in summer on an unsuspecting passenger and see how long it takes for him/her to ask, "is it hot today?"

Did you really put Rotas on an Elise?.....
As did everyone else here for 9 pages worth... did you also ask them the same question?

http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f95/fs-rota-torque-wheel-650-set-lotus-group-buy-58323/

That's probably why it's listed as having Rotas. Plus they look great.
Thanks! I like the way they look, a bit sportier than the regular LSS wheels. The next owner can keep them or swap them out, that's his/her choice to make. To each his/her own.
