Selling my Lotus Elise now as i'm in the market for a 2009+ Nissan GTR

Model: 2005 Lotus Elise touring package
Interior: Black interior w/ color matched panels
Title : Clean, never in an accident
Mileage: 60,500
Color: Krypton Green

Service/Maintenance: All services and maintenances are up to date.
-60k major tune up performed by Lotus Specialist Shop DietschWerks 2 weeks ago, has all new fluids, filters, and spark plugs, passed safety inspection
-Complete paperwork and records on hand, Carfax in hand

History:
-I purchased the vehicle last year from a local Lotus owner with 58k miles on it, I have never tracked it, used purely as a sunshine weekend car, never drove the car in the rain or abused it in any way. The car sits more than it gets driven, due to my work schedule. I love this car in it's simplicity and the pure rawness of the way it drives, my 2 car garage just cannot fit a new car and my RX7 (would never sell)

-He was the second owner (50k-58k miles and drove it as a weekend car) put 9 track days on it but was very well taken care of.

-Original owner drove the car as a daily driver for 50,000 miles in Southern California/Arizona

Extras/mods:
-Lowtush fiberglass front splitter
-16x7" & 17x8" flawless Volk Racing TE37 (matte black) with Toyo R1R's (front is 60%, rears are 30% but I have a brand new pair included)
-Wheel stud conversion w/ wheel nuts (factory lug bolts w/ tool included)
-Factory soft top with storage bag (never used)
-Color matched hard top with storage bag
-Factory starshield
-Car cover (all owners including myself have kept it in a garage with the cover on it's entire life)
-Color matched interior accents and panels
-Trueleo side skirts (not painted or installed yet)
-Carbon Lorraine front brake pads (60% left)
-EBC red rear brake pads (40% left)
-Sector111 track pipe exhaust
-Sector111 v-force harness bar
-Schroth 4pt harness (both sides)
-Rear DS brace
-Gpan3 oil pan
-Sector111 rear panel delete
-Deka lightweight battery (2 months old)
-Front & rear tow hook
-Eliseparts.com front toe end links
-Eliseparts.com 1/4 turn quick disconnect under panel fasteners
-Eliseparts.com front sway bar end links
-LED converted tail lights
-LED license plate lights
-HID 35w headlights

Price is $36,000, vehicle is in the Bay Area, able to show the car during evenings and Sundays, not in a hurry to sell, with the rarity of these cars, especially in this color, I think the price is fair considering all of the mods

not some great ones, i can take some better pics this weekend when i'm off



this pic was taken in the process of converting my tail lights to LED rings, similar to the 06+ models, only the right side inner was completed at this time for comparison, but they're all completed now

Interesting to see I'm not the only one that went from an Elise to a GT-R, good luck with the sale. They are totally different animals.

I have always liked the GTR. I wonder how much more the insurance cost is from an Elise to a GTR? Anyway, your Elise is a good looking car - GLWS.

Insurance cost is a little bit more but not a whole lot, not enough for me to worry at least

Nice car! If you end up removing some of those mods (such as those really nice wheels) to lower the price, LMK. You're a bit out of my price range right now.

Such a sweet car and you're somewhat in the area for me. But I'm not ready to buy for at least a month. In the process of installing a pool and getting rid of my current car. Otherwise I would be all over this.

If it's still available then, I would gladly take it off your hands. This is the top choice of color for me.

Bit of advise from a GTR owner get the 2012 and up GTR. The transmissions are much better and more defined in daily driving and the track. Smoother shifts better launch also the suspension is way better. Rides way better and has more hp then the 2011 down.
