The correct link is

2006 LOTUS ELISE,SPORT TOURING PKG .DVD.STARSHIELD UNDER WARRANTY

I saw that car on CL as well. Looks very nice to me, but I know nothing about the reputation of Conti Auto Sales. CO is a great color, but that 7" monitor seems a bit much for that small cockpit. Price seems reasonable to me given what I've seen of used '06 Elises with that kind of mileage. I would obviously take it for a PPI to an authorized Lotus dealer before making a purchase.

So are those sport package wheels? I thought the sport package wheels were the split spoke wheels.:shrug: And thanks for the link.

I find the whole Lotus wheel thing very confusing :confused: I think those are the LSS black pack wheels but someone who knows more about these things will probably chime in. Whatever they are, I like them! :up:

Here is what I would do...

Tell them that is doesnt have sport pack and that should lower price, check to make sure car fax is clean, tell them that you have to have a Lotus dealer inspect the car and do an ECU dump. See what they say...


Also, here is one FS on here, same price, same miles, WAY more options...and best part is that its a owner on here...

Are those the "black pack" wheels...or maybe the base wheels which have been painted or powdercoated?

I'm not saying that either car is a bad deal just don't be afraid to buy one out of your area. You don't want to limit yourself to only a few cars that are close to home. I bought mine down in Tennessee and drove it back home to Michigan, and I had a blast doing it.:shift:

Yes, those are absolutely the base wheels, either powdercoated or painted. While this is a good indicator the car doesn't have the sport pack option (as wheels can be changed out) a quick check of the oil coolers will confirm or deny whether the car was shipped with the sport package. Peek in the intakes on either side of the center intake on the front clam. Sports pack- 2, Base - 1. At the end of the day, though, Cory is correct - even if it does have the two coolers and uprated suspension, without the wheels it's not a complete sport pack.
