With pricing a little out of control in the North east, I have just decided to go the distance to get the vehicle at the right price.Here is a strategy:
1) Find and Agree on price for a 20K mile vehicle
2) Seller drives to the nearest Lotus dealership for a full pre purchase inspection (I will pay for inspection)
3) If inspection goes well, I fly down, conclude the sale, drive back 500-1500 miles or whatever it takes.
Anyone ever do this? One other option is transporting the vehicle and pay $2k more which nullifies the value proposition...
Has the Lotus been known to withstand long drives? I keep hearing issues around radiator, transmission etc...
What are your thoughts?
