Does anyone have a firm delivery date yet for an LSS equipped Elise?
Does anyone actually know if the holdup has been resolved. I am assuming that the delay was for the wheels, but I have not seen anything really confirming that.

Talked to my dealer today. Before this LSS delay was due for a Sept delivery. My bulit date is now Sept. With a little luck, (when am I go to give up on that) :p delivery will be late Sept. More likely Oct.

I believe the issue was just the wheels. I was told earlier LSS cars will be built in July with deliveries starting in August. I expect to have my car in early August.

*crosses fingers*

That means your car should ship on July 19. 4 weeks for an east coast delivery means August 16th delivery.

Thanks all. I'll be tracking down Tim tomorrow at the dealership. I'll add my estimates (if they have any ) to this thread.

I swear I posted about the car coming at Spyderchat, maybe on an old version.

I knew it was going to happen years ago and told friends that might be interested...back in 2002. GET ON THE LIST!

Randy,

I remember your postings on Spyderchat regarding the Elise; you single-handedly got me to buy (and become obsessed with) this car! I don't know whether to love you or hate you at this point :D Max

Thanks. I have worked tirelessly for 3+ years now trying to convince everyone I could on Miata.net, Spyderchat, MR2 owners club, SCCA forums, local forums, music and DVD forums. I am sure I passed the point that most people were either convinced, or very tired of me. :)

It would be nice if Lotus threw me a bone.... Oh.. I don't know... but if my car showed up in July with LSD... :)

The Lotus are coming, the Lotus are coming!

Ah... this is starting to sound like more solid information.
I talked with Tim yesterday and he has told me the same thing as other LSS's early on the lists. Steve Harris will get 1 car (their demo) due to arrive between the 14th and 19th of July. They will then receive their first 5 cars (in one batch) sometime in August. These cars will be for the first 5 in their waitlist. #1 and #2(mine) are both LSS. So it does sound like the LSS crisis is over.
It is now hard to believe that in 4 to 7 weeks I might actually see my car.
My friends and especially my wife will be very grateful to silence my perpetual updates :p

I say Randy should get a FREE Elise. Can we set up one of those voting threads?
And let me tell you he is super quick on the autoX course!
