Hello all, another new guy here. I am beginning my search for my Lotus Elise. At this point, i have a pretty open mind on what i would like. I am prepared to spend between 35-45k....i am considering new though which according to the website comes in around 53k. I have a few basic questions.
If i buy used, what model years are preferable if any? Is the supercharged version worth the extra money and if so would it make sense to buy a higher milage/older model to afford one? If i buy new i would be stretching my budget slightly...is this worth it? Are new elises going for msrp these days or can deals be had? I am also completely lost on which colors i like as i have only seen a few due to the limited quantity readily available in the area(MA). Any feedback would be greatly apreciated. Thanks all.

The only supercharged Elise's are 08+ models, so finding a higher mileage/older model is going to be difficult...

Don't stretch your budget. But, yes, the car is worth it if you have the money. If you don't have the money, nothing is worth it.
