My '05 SY Elise reached 35,000 mile point. How many of you reached that? How many miles (over 35K miles) does your Elise/exige miles have in it's "Old Age" (high miles)? Mine runs perfectly, street and track!:D How about your Lotus?

You have me beat. I just hit 20,000 with my 05 Elise. But you have to cut me some slack, I live in Indiana, the car has to sit in storage 5 months out of the year.

I took mine ('05) for inspection yesterday, and they were surprised I had 3400 miles. One said, "if I had a car like that, I would be driving it!" I am only in town about 10 days/month, and there are only about 5 months of decent weather here. Will be a long time before I catch up, Hal.

a friend's 2002 elise has only done 6000km (not miles!). Mine has done just under 7000km in 6 months.

My 06 now has 41 000 miles (65 700 km). I drive it hard all the time. I've had new shocks (dampers and springs) installed lately. The car runs perfectly.

I have only had my elise for 10 days and done a total of around 800 miles. I am coming for you! I bought used with 14k so I will be cheating a bit on my total.

Just coming up to 15,000 miles, bought my 2005 brand new in July of 2006, have driven it every day to work in LA traffic and on weekends in the canyons, few trips to up to Carmel, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Palm Springs. No major mechanical issues, I picked up 2 nails over the course of a year in the same rear tire, just got new rears put on Monday.

Still having a blast every morning and evening when I get to drive to or from work, even in the occasional bad weather or horrible traffic jam.
