ok, i know the Elise is a little noisy, and the engine is right behind you. so, my question is.......if me and somebody were driving down the highway at 60 mph with the roof on, to hear each other would we:
A) have to yell
B) have to talk loud
C) pretty much talk normal

thanks for any constructive comments.

depends on which exhaust you have?

but, most likely (windows up or down) you're gonna have to go talk loud.

You'll have to talk loud. I have no problem carrying a conversation but we are definitely talking loudly. Stock exhaust and air box.

Top on, windows up.
My Elise has a Larini exhaust and as long as I'm not accelerating or going up a hill, at highway speeds, just talking loud is fine. No yelling.

Stock exhaust.

Windows up - no problem
Windows down - no problem

The rattles make a lot more noise than the exhaust in my car.

No disrespect intended, but you would be best served to drive to a dealership, get in and out of their test car, and go to town with your Q&A while driving the ****er.

And BTW, I saw an Evora today in person and it was GORGEOUS. If I had the money, like you do, I would wait and get one. It is SOOOOOOO nice.

******, you're posting in the wrong forum. You are no longer new here. You're getting decidedly old.
