Sport & Touring packs (black leather)

Bump for super little car! Very clean and nice.

"Rear foil LOTUS letters removed and LOTUS black/silver badge installed" - can you take pic of that?

Any accident history?

"Exige style mesh in grill, over radiator, and on decklid" -- one of the most tasteful mods I have ever seen - WOW - that looks fantastic! Adds such an aggressive look. Was that something custom you did or does Sector111 sell that?

I'll rummage around and see if I have a head on picture of the rear badge. Here is a shot that shows the badge, but before the rear louvers had been replaced with the mesh. The badge is identical to the one on the nose, though. I believe I got it from BWR, and it has the correct shape to fit into the concave shape of the rear end.

This shot also shows the car with the black euro Exige wheels. The buyer could elect to take these wheels instead of the LSS, if he or she wishes (OR even take a set of the euro exige wheels in silver!).

The mesh are the EliseUSA parts. Pricey, but well made. Stainless steel mesh with 3 layers of powdercoat.

That is one sexy car. I love those LSS wheels on it. I am sure whoever buys it will be very happy with it. Nice and simple mods that help the car and not hurt it.

Totally agree. Tasteful mods don't scare away buyers. Looks fantastic with that mesh work. If someone said they did that - without pics - I'd expect something really tacky, but no way here - A++.

Also good that is is not a custom job so if the buyer hits a Possum some night, the grill can be replaced/ordered/powdercoated to match.

The rear diffuser in black would look great also (just imo).

Thanks.

Next change will be to raise the price! :panic:

I've cornered the market on 2005 AR HT, Sport, Touring, black leather, starshield Exige mesh and grills, low miles, black LSS wheels, black badge treatment, black console/AC surround, in Maryland, WITH a clean bill of health for the cams. -poke-

Sweet, good luck. If you fail here try Ebay, just sold mine for 34,900 3 days into the bid. Boy do i miss rhat car
I may do that, but I've already got some inquiries, and it would be great to sell it without giving ebay its cut. Will consider it though if it comes to it.
