A Poll And A Question.....

ok, since Road Dad advised me to proceed, i am going to.

first the question. how tall can you be before the wind hits you in the face with the top off in an Elise? i am about 6'2", and i dont really like to drive down the highway going 55mph and have bugs hit me in the face, eyes, hair, mouth, clothes, etc. cruising around town isnt a big deal, but highway driving is. so, i guess the question is at what height do you get the wind in your face in an Elise?

and the poll is similar to one that was posted a couple of weeks ago. it was the poll about how often a new 2008/2009 Elise had to be taken back to the dealer for warranty issues regarding the engine.

so, this poll raises the other side of the coin in that i am curious how often you have to take a new 2008/2009 Elise back to the dealer for warranty work regarding issues other than those involving the engine. issues such as window not working properly, radio not working, A/C not working, lights not working, etc, etc. anything that you feel needs fixed not related to engine problems.

Unfortunately there is not a straight forward answer to the height question. People can be the same height but they will differ in dimension from the waist up so for one person at 6'-2" all will be fine, for another, perhaps not. I'm 6'-2" with a 34" inseam and I feel the wind in my hair but no bugs in teeth.

Can't help you with the rest, I have an 05 and issues were minimal.
