All,
I moved to Europe about two and a half years ago and brought my Elise with me. Sadly, it has been sitting in my garage since then (although I did start it up a few times and drove it around the neighbourhood). I need to get it converted to Swiss/Euro standards; however, no dealers in my area (Zurich) seem to be willing to go through this process. Does anybody know of a company or knows how to go about getting the conversion done? At least according to one garage, it is not that complicated...

Cheers,
.. Nick

You could try and contact Bemani in Swizzerland to see if they can help:

bemani motorenbau AG  --  Der Tuning Spezailist fuer Strasse und Rennstrecke

Also, there is currently a set of Euro spec tail lights for sale for a reasonable price.
You'll need to have Amber turn signals over here.

You can also look thru the used part section on Elise Parts in case that you need something and don't want to pay new part prices:

Elise Parts - New Products - USED PARTS SALE
