I do think he was talking GBP and not $ (or euros), but he was also talking about S1, not S2. An S1 could be as much as 16 years old now (1996 was first year?), and there are an awful lot more Elises in the UK than there are here, so the price points are likely much lower. You'll see that if you look at the prices of parts, which are readily available in the UK and cost considerably less.Some of the comments made me laugh... Some guy actually posted that used Elises will command no more than 13 grand. I sure hope he was talking euros. Either that, or I way overpaid for what I drive.
