Mistake #1 - never leave the windows up when the top is off. Otherwise amazing shots!

Yep, it's prime Lotus time right now in the Old Dominion. The top hasn't been on my Elise in about a month (had to drive home in the rain one day).

I think it's in regards to taking pictures. It looks better with the windows down which I would have to agree. Still great pics though.

Yes, mainly because it looks silly -- especially in photos.

IMHO: An Elise looks no sillier with the top off and the windows up than it does with the top off and the windows down. A Elise with the top off looks like a beautiful coupe which has been attacked with a chainsaw. This is one of multiple reasons why my Elise wears its hardtop.
