At 6:11 he mentions the brake pedal 'mush' that early Toyota powered Elises (like mine) have. It obviously bothers him as much as it does me.

His parting comment about Lotus in general: 'if you drive it, you'll probably have to buy it.'

Great video as I've always loved S1 Elises and still do. But 3 things.. Man does this guy look like a younger mike (Or if Mike ever had a son) from wheeler dealer, two, why couldn't they shut the passenger side door all way and three, that Elise had a ton of vibrations (from the road to the engine idling). I wonder if the guy had engine mounts?

The S1 Elise just looks like the most distilled Elise/Exige and as much as I like the S2 Elise/Exige, I still prefer the styling on the S1, esp the rear. Oh and I hope I don't offend but he's right on the color... Chrome orange would look so sweet..
