I bought my elise from U.S. and now its here in Asia(tropical country). I think all U.S. automobiles contain anti-freeze formula in their coolant. So do i need to change the coolant, without anti freeze? If i dont change it will it affect the performance of the car? Like higher temp reading and weak aircon cooling due to high pressure.. Please help..

It's a chemestry thing, anything which raises the boiling point of water also lowers the freezing point. You don't get one without the other. Use the organic anti-freeze listed in the manual, regular anti-freeze may not be friendly with all the aluminum in your car.
