I have recently acquired a low mileage, 10,500, '05 Elise in Bordeaux. It came with the soft top only. I am looking for feedback on how useful the addition of a hard top is, and specifically the Elise-Shop unit. I am in the northeast. The unit will cost about $1200 shipped and then it will need paint. So does one get $1500 of value, in terms of usability in the colder seasons with the addition of the top and does it add equivalent resale value?
