Just wanted to write a formal hello and introduce myself, I purchased my new to me used elise a month ago, It is a 2006 Storm Titanium with 59,000 miles, got it serviced by Dietchwerks and they noticed I had an oil line leak. I contacted Lotus but the recall wasn't out yet but they still fixed it for me for free! :) Looking forward to get to know everybody on here.

Congratulations, and welcome!

I too had mine serviced by Dietsch Werks after I got it this summer (mine's a 2007, so I'm not affected by the oil line leak).

I hope you'll join the Golden Gate Lotus Club and come on one of the drives.

welcome!

I, was also a previous owner of the E46 M3, and few cars later, just purchased Lotus. 7k miles on the odometer and I love it.
So what is it you like about you new lotus compared to the M3. Just curious as I was interested on those also before I went withe the elise

Awesome. I came from an e46 330ci as well.

And FYI, they probably did the temporary fix to your oil line. Make sure you get the recall done.

Thanks for the welcomes everybody!

The M3 was a great car but all the common failures if they do fail will cost a pretty penny, so instead of worrying about it breaking all the time I decided to just let it go and get something cheaper to maintain.
