Thanks for the pic, that was just what I was looking for. I wanted to see how much the front outside edges of the car are in view from the driving position. Of course it will be different for each person, but I just wanted a general feeling.
and they've decided to drive on the other side of the road! the corners of the clam are still the same size though in the old and new elise. you can't see the very front of the car but enough to use it as normal. i'm 5'11''.
