Just wanted to see if there was going to be any difference in the emissions or anything else for the CA Federal Elises? I am buying outside of CA, but might move to CA and curious to see if that might be an issue.

Thanks

As far as I know the Fed. Elise will be 50 state compliant, if I"m wrong someone here can correct me!

CA cars will have cup and cell phone holders as standard.
(joking, I'm from LA myself.)

What about ECU adjustments so the car runs on our crappy gas (91 octane).

I assume there will be a knock sensor to deal with low octane gasoline. If the octane is low enough to ping the knock sensor will reduce engine output. Hey, how about Octane+ or something like that or mixing with Avgas?

Or just run a tank full of diesal. After that a bit of knock from 91 octane won't bother you as much.:)
