Just purchased my Lotus Elise 2005 (last week). Such fun car to drive and so beautiful to look at. It seems like previous owner took good care of the car and I'm still going over a stack of documentation that was provided with the car (notices of recalls, receipts for maintenance, upgrades and repairs). I'm very happy to find this community, as this is my first Lotus car and I have already learned a lot from reading this forum for past week. Some of you have already answered my first newb questions and I'm looking forward to being a part of this fine online community.
