I have recently bought a 2007 Elise R but I'm having a few issues which I'm sure is a minor problem. As follows;
1. When starting the car for the first time at the dock, I noticed that the idling was uneven, revving slowly up and dow in abaout a 2 second intervall. After manually revving the engine a few times, it evened out.
2. Driving it home, after about 13 miles, the engine light went on. I drove the car home, without any noticable further symptoms, everything felt normal. Diagnostics at the local Lotus specialist showed error code P0133, something with the oxymeter then? The code was cancelled at the garage and the car was driven around for a few miles by the mechanic with no signs of trouble.
3. I then collected the car from the garage and drove i about 3 miles to my work. Before I got there the engine started to run jerky on low revs, with slow throttle respons. Then the window wiper came on by itself and couldn´t be shut off with the switch, and then the hazard lights came on by themselves. When putting in the reverse gear, the engine stalled, same thing repeated itself after restarting the engine several times.
The car then got towed back to the Lotus garage again. Diagnose there showed no error codes.
