Sounds like what a dealer might be asking for a clean, low miles car.2005 almost 5K miles. Soft top a/c (no fog lights?) $36,995
ecu can be grumpy like that - just the way it is - A/C, as mention, can be tweeked to perform better. so thats fairly common stuff.Man this forum is awesome. Never thought i would get so many useful replies so quickly.
Thanks everybody for chiming in; I will definitely do some browsing in the ads here. I initially thought that it would be counter-productive to shop on this forum.
I drove the car and it seems to be in good shape. Upon startup the engine would choke out a bit when I gave it some throttle; the A/C seems to struggle to keep the cabin cool; and the previous owner wasn't very careful in his wax-jobs. The salesman said that the first two things were common of Elises in New Mexico heat.
