Hello fellow lotus owners. Ive delayed this introduction as I thought my ownership may of been short lived. My background, I am a master automotive technician and former buyer for a large dealership. Ive had the chance to buy and drive some pretty awesome cars over the years. This year I had the good fortune of picking up a 2005 Aubergine elise for a great deal. She was a peach with only 12k miles and absolute mint condition. I intended to drive it for the summer then move on.... well, turns out I really like the car. Its just unpractical enough that I have to keep it. I appreciate all the info I have gotten from people in my 7 months of ownership and look forward to meeting some of you in the northeast.
