Ummm, actually, that's not from SELOC. It's from me. I wrote that. See my signature. It's been 'borrowed' by several people without giving me credit.Pimping said:From a member on Seloc.
Lotus Elise: a real sports car. A pure sport car. A featherweight with no unnecessary driver aids that detract from the driving experience. No dynamic stability management. No active yaw control. No electronic brake distribution. No traction control. No throttle by wire. No 4 x 4. No sequential paddle gearchange. No power steering. No power mirrors. No heated 8-way power seats. Little in the way of sound deadening materials. No cruise control. No cup holders. Sure, it's small, loud and impractical. If you want quiet, buy a BMW. If you need to haul a lot of stuff, get a van. If you need to stretch out, rent a limo. But if you want to go fast, seriously fast, sit down, strap in, shut up and hang on.
As the owner of a Jag XK8, I realize exactly how different the two cars are. It's going to be a serious change that will take some getting used to. But, the roads in my area are good quality, i'm nto getting the sport package, and I am getting the touring package. There are certain sacrifices that have to be made when you can't afford to own a car just for the weekends, but you want a real sports car. And I'm prepared to not just live with those sacrficies, but to enjoy them, because they add character and personality to the car.Stan said:>>>This thing has NO CUPHOLDERS????!!!<<<
I've spoken to folks now driving E46 M3s and Jag convertibles who think that the Elise just might work for them. They don't understand that the Elise is night and day different from their present rides.
