Hey all,

Currently drive a 2016 Mustang GT350, and before that a 2003 350Z. My experience with Lotus is limited mostly to a car that turns into a submarine as well as the great excitement about the Elise coming to the USA back in the day. Was thinking of getting one, but at the time my 350Z was still quite new and I loved that car and never took the plunge.

Now that I have had the Mustang for a few years and my kids are a bit older, I'm interested in getting back into a smaller car (don't plan on getting rid of the GT350 though). The new Nissan Z has my attention, as does the Corvette C8 Z06 (but I am a manual nutcase, and have a hard time getting an automatic, even in a car that is sure to be as amazing as the new Z06). Of course the Boxster/Cayman GTS 4.0 is of interest, but after the personality of the GT350 I'm not sure I'm interested in something is competent but sterile as those Porsche's. A friend (who has an Elise) was reminding me of the Emira that should be arriving in a year or so, and after looking at some photos I'm very excited to see what reviewers and the Lotus community thinks of the car.

Looking forward to learning more.

Thanks,

Hello everyone. Just got my first Lotus last week. 2008 Arctic Silver SC. Thrilled to finally have one in the garage, can't believe I waited this long! I'm in NH these days, so a much shorter season of clean and clear roads to enjoy, but so far, so good!

Welcome to LT! Congrats on your Elise purchase! Do you plan on driving year round or put it up for the winter?

Catsailr27, sadly I’ll be putting the Elise up for the winter. There’s so much salt used on the roads up here, I just can’t stomach putting the car through it.

Curious how many are driving theirs in this kind of climate?

My LSS will be going back on with Conti DWS-06 for the cold. The car stays in conditioned garage so still on summer tires but days are getting colder. I drive if it's nice out all winter if the car isn't in pieces.

LT, I joined this week. I’m looking to make a purchase of a DD/HDPE. I was 9 when I had my first Lotus experience, it was in London in 1987, when I watched a father looking at an Esprit and at the same time a matching pedal car for his son. I’m finally to the point in life where I can pursue a Lotus of my own. I’m going to race through my 10 posts, and desperately wait the 3 days, unless someone can let @Enotria know I’m interested. I’m in Maryland.

2005 Lotus Elise, Bordeaux Red Pearl

Hey all, I'm Andea from Atlanta, GA. I have a 2005 Bordeaux Red Pearl Lotus Elise and a 2003 Jeep Wrangler. (I believe this Bordeaux Red Pearl color was only offered in 2005 and only 205 imported?) The Lotus is our Sunday driver... low miles, only 16K. We are the original owners of this amazing car. Love our Lotus, but sadly I think we may be selling her in the near future so I am working on the ten posts. Wish I had known about this group and joined sooner. Anyway, glad to be part of the LT community.
