Hi, I need to sell my beautiful Elise. It's an '07 in MINT condition (I'm pretty anal about keeping my cars in great shape). Since I'm in Texas, I get to drive it year round. Mileage is 6600 (mainly smooth interstate miles between Austin and San Antonio). I would like advice on what I should ask for it and also let everyone on the site that it's for sale.

everyone on forum will think you should sell your car (to them) for thousands less than its worth. You're probably better off: going dealer to dealer,posting a FOR SALE sign on the car, craigslist (since its free anyway) and going to some car-meets/shows (or parking it in a busy area).

good luck pal

What options do you have on the car? sport pack? any aftermarket CF parts? That would make a difference in your asking price.

Touring pack, hard and soft top, starshield and Lotus-made indoor car cover (cost 300-350). Everything is stock, no aftermarket parts or mods (except for lotus seatbelt "comfor pads" (don't know what official name for those are). Always garaged and I rarely drive it in full sun. Mainly morning or evening drives and cruising around the nightclub areas downtown on weekend nights.

Since I'm not wanting to buy your car, I'll give you some unbiased information.

Average asking price for a 2007 Lotus Elise on cars.com is $47259.00 and they have an average mileage of 3121 miles (btw, looks like people on average drive about 3500 miles a year in an Elise). Since yours has more miles than average for an Elise (but apparently well kept and with a hard top) I would price it at $45k and then be willing to accept down to about ~$40k.

Pricing really will depend on how badly you need to sell. You could probably unload it today for under $40k. If you can wait for the right buyer to come along, you might get 5 to 7 grand more. List it on autotrader.com, cars.com, and eBay. The broader your audience, the better your chances.
