My M3 leaves tomorrow, and my Elise arrives on Thursday!:nanner::coolnana::nanner:

This was much smoother and faster than I expected! Now I just need to start yoga to get ready for the Cirque Du Soleil entry and exit moves...

BTW I think your swap of an M3 for and Elise is fantastic. How are you planning to use the car, for some reason I'm guessing street/daily? What model was your M3, E46? As I'm sure (hope) you know the comfort difference between an E46 and an Elise is pretty significant.

Oh, and pictures when you have them please. Maybe start with some of your M3??
Occasional DD duty when it is too hot to ride my motorcycle. Then weekend fun car.

I did a rolling restoration on an E36 M3. It was a total wreck when I found it. Not as cush as an E46, but far cushier than its immediate predecessor: a Super Stalker that I built. The Elise should slot in nicely between the two.

2006 Super Stalker sold in 2011:


1995 BMW M3 Sold last weekend:

that's a clean e36.
congrats on the elise! what color?
Thanks, you should have seen the car when I bought it. It was a total money pit, but it was fun. The Elise is Polar Blue.

My suggestion on entry and exit of the car is to slide the seat all the way to the rear position, which makes swinging your legs in easier. And I am only 5'5".
I am 5'5" when I am in a good mood. I was really joking, it doesn't seem that hard, just not as easy as entry into a lesser car! It will certainly be easier than suiting up into full riding gear to ride my motorcycle which I use to commute...

Driver called. Car will get here at 0930 tomorrow morning. I think this calls for a day off!
