ok, just wanted to double check. somebody said i should look into a California Edition of an Elise since it has the option of the Magnolia interior all over, including the dash, etc.

my question is, does a California Edition Elise more expensive than the Base Elise? what are the differences in the two?

When I was buying my Elise a few months ago, I sat inside a Red/Magnolia California edition, and I don't think that the light interior works very well. It's the same cheapo plastic, just lighter colored. The images on Lotus' site make it look much higher quality than it is, but in reality, it reminds me more of milk bottle plastic than something in a nice car.

sorry, dont mean to cause a stir. its just that i have tons of questions, and the only way i know to get sufficient response is to ask them. and one at a time gets more response than anything else.

hope the Mods understand. and if i am doing something wrong, i hope the Mods will point it out. until then, i assume this is what this Forum was intended to be for.

at least attempt some type of search first.

If you completely refuse to attempt a search first, lie about it and say "I tried to search but I couldn't find my answer."

Well I have loads of questions, but loads of people yell at me all the time :p
Except Aedo (Mr. Steve). He's helpful. I guess it's because people like you. But anyway...

I don't like the California at all. The Front grille looks horrible. The white dash isn't amazing. If you're looking to buy one, then I wouldn't recommend it from a visual standpoint...

******, you need to get a car with VTEC (very high engine coolant) and a car that shoots flame out of the hood scoops...yeaaaa!!!!

I dont think the California edition does these two things :(
