"better later than never"!
I was told by Ryan that my car is being manufactured as we chat...
and should be in the US by end of December....
So I am expecting to start the new year off with my Baby...

Incidently, I DONT recommend the clear bra cover ( Lotus asking $900+) for the hood.
Three reasons:

1) The price is ridiculous
2) If you are an afficianado like me, the clear lines where the plastic ends would drive me nuts...
3) The reason they recommend it don't warrant the money spent. Road chips are a way of life....

IF you truly want to enjoy her: RIDE her!
Take her out for a spin every chance you get, and the penalty
sometimes will be road chips...
easily repaired by any (Vett body shop pro) if needed.

BUT if you baby her too much, you will not experience the thrill of her perfomability...
which will be rewarded when others in more expensive vehicles can't
understand how you just approached a right hand turn at
an intersection at 20 mph slammed right, accelerated away...and
stayed in the right lane completely! That is .90G! And he is in the dust.....
( Well expect for the "S" Turbo Porsches that is! If you find any... only made 50 Heh heh. )

An Elise is capable of much more than that:clap:

Only on a track:)

Only made 50? I guess that's what the salesmen have to say when the next gen is less than a year away. Champion motors in s. florida is getting more than fifty themselves.
