Buying this Elise but wondering why the exhaust are different on so many 2006?
Some are middle in the bottom-middle, some are just on the right and others like this picture are dual exiting either side of license plate.
2006 seems not to have that many options???

Most of those are aftermarket. From what I understand the only stock one is a center exhaust exiting below the rear diffuser.

+1, there are really two flavors of aftermarket, through the diffuser or above. The stock exhaust was a dual pipe center exhaust through the diffuser. Other aftermarkets can be found at a variety of different vendors. My personal favorite is the sonic fury for both incredible sound on the 2nd cam and no-drone design.

Ah nice! Did you fly out and check it out?
NO best I could do was videos and discussions on the phone. If you saw it live I am very interested in feedback?
I just really wanted 2006 or newer, throttle, seats and led. Also wanted that green. Looked at one in Indiana but it was a 2005.

The dual exhaust was a European option. You can buy the exhaust grilles with the holes cut out from Lotus. I have same on my car (although I changed it to that). I like the look and sound much better.

Thank you, I like the look a lot. Sound I have only heard on video but will hopefully see it live this weekend. Thanks again for response

Feel free to PM about the car if you'd like. I test drove this one and a number of others in the area before purchasing...

I’m in the Chicago area too and have a few stock exhausts laying around. You can have one if you want if you want to experiment.

Welcome and congrats on the purchase! Another Chicagoland owner here. Glad to see a new member in our area. When this stay at home order is over, we all need to gather again!

Congrats on the purchase. I'm a big fan of the LRG color also! GBMA4664.jpg GBMA2753.jpg IMG_2161.JPG
