I believe it is. I've seen the open console used with the ShiftR111 before. But between the shifter and console, you're in it for probably about $3k. The new shift mechanism is separate from the e-brake so you have to buy the new parts separately. It's all in the DeRoure catalog.Is it possible to swap the new open shift linkage center console from the newer cars into our older cars? I'm surprised I haven't seen this done...
He may have made it himself, but many years ago someone was selling them on the forum. I've had one for at least 6 years I think. Haven't installed it yet since I want to wrap it with red leather to match the stock red leather I have. However, a few local shops said matching existing leather hard so I need to put some thought into what to wrap it with to compliment in the interior.Is that factory or custom? I don’t remember seeing that when I saw your car. That’s pretty cool.

This may be one of those. It's definitely hand made (from a plastic super hero cup, no less).many years ago someone was selling them on the forum. I've had one for at least 6 years I think. Haven't installed it yet since I want to wrap it with red leather to match the stock red leather I have.
I could go into a dissertation on the 987. It's a sublime chassis. Extreme well balanced (neutral) and easy to drive right up to the limit on a track. So easy to maintain yaw with the throttle that it makes you look like a hero.Love your Lotus, but that Cayman is just a beautiful design, simple and clean. Thinking about it now, that would be a nice stable mate to the Elise. :drool:
Very well put. I sold my E46M3 for this very reason and was considering a 987 as a replacement. I'm very happy with my Elise :grin2:It's also extremely normal to drive when just doing commuting duties. There's no sense of occasion and really very little excitement. In other words, it's not really much fun if you're not going fast.
In my experience, the key to a car being fun ALL the time is light weight. Under somewhere around 2400 pounds, cars just seem to come to life. The Elise is the poster child for this, but I've found this in Miatas, 1st gen Rx-7s, pre-90s Porsches, early Integras, MR2s, heck, even a 90's Corolla has it to some degree. This makes cars flickable, chuckable, responsive, communicative.Very well put. I sold my E46M3 for this very reason and was considering a 987 as a replacement. I'm very happy with my Elise :grin2:
