I have been in love with the Elise for months and am 90% serious about buying one within the year - with the 10% reservation being the long trip to the dealership for maintenance/repairs (4 hour drive), insurance costs, and all the other things one must consider when looking at a car like the Elise as a daily driver. Well, one more good reason to buy an Elise for me personally! I called our insurance company today (Progressive) and to add the Elise to our policy would be $700/year. Oh, what a thrill! I was so afraid of what it might be that I had avoided calling for weeks. And they didn't care whether or not I drove it daily, abused it or just looked at lovingly, all they cared about was how much it would cost me to buy one new. Encouraging news!
