I'm in the market for my first lotus and I'm looking to see if anyone has recommendations for shops or meetups, drives etc..

I have a thread in the newbie section, but figured this would hopefully get the attention of anyone willing to show me a car. I buy beers :D

Did you end up picking up a Lotus? I just picked up my first one and I'm in San Antonio as well.

I did. Flew out to Utah and drove back an 05 chrome orange. What did you end up with? The lotus community around here is pretty absent unfortunately. I did get some twisted sisters in on Saturday even though it was raining.. stupid rain.

Chrome orange? Fantastic. I picked up a chili red 2006 locally. I feel you on the rain. I had to keep the car in a week, but I took a few short drives over this past weekend before hitting the gym. The Elise has always been pretty rare down here. If you want, maybe we can meet up for a few drives on occasion.

Loving this car. It's just fantastic.

I live in San Antonio, but I am not a Lotus owner. I do have a 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder (cheaper cousin to the Elise...). Very rarely do I see a Lotus of any kind in this city. If you know of any club meet-ups, let me know!

I've never seen a C&C event with less then 3 so theres one way to see them. I will try to be at one of them next week but it's more likely to be Austin.

I have not been on the board lately, but I have a 2005 Elise in Graphite Grey. I’m the original owner but it hasn’t been on the road for years. Just now trying to get it going again. Replacing the oil lines myself right now and have done several other mods over the years it’s been on sabbatical.
