I have a 2005 Lotus elise and wondered if there are any upgrades i should get other than tires. I was wondering about a super charger and an intercooler and cold air intake.:mw:

I love my Lotus.. but these cars aren't exactly the sturdiest. So you should "reinforce" your car as much as possible before throwing a boost in there :up:

:confused: The Elise/Exige has an exceptionally stiff chassis... one that can handle far more power than it is delivered with, NA or FI.
But as stated above the OP should probably shore up his driving skills before anything else on the car....

I see a lot of the 05 owners spending up to $100 or so to get that integrated key/alarm look so they can stop carrying around that alien head looking key fob.

you need toe links or you can die. I like BOE's links - like addertooth - they are on my car.

Komiko is being dramatic, you probably won't die, you will just wet your pants if the stock links fail at a high rate of speed, maybe a broken bone or two, meh, no big deal really.

You can just walk it off for the most part.
