Hello Lotus Talk community!

Recently I have sold my s2000 and am in the market for a Lotus Elise. I am located in Miami, Fl and am willing to travel to find one for the right price. This attempt may be futile but I would really like to get my hands on one and purchase from a private party and not a dealer.

Thank you for viewing!

You should widen your radius.

You are doing yourself a disservice to not consider Wirewheel.com . Closeby, fair pricing and extensive knowledge and a really good reputation.

Agree totally with 6TVRs on Wirewheel.com. Bought mine from them sight unseen (which I said I would NEVER do) and had it shipped to Michigan. Extremely satisfied.

Highly recommend Wirewheel also. The owner, Hayes, is good guy, and long time supplier to the Lotus marquee. Hard to believe you would not even consider a conversation with him.....costs nothing but your time.

I had a decent experience with wirewheel, but I would strongly recommend an independent inspection. I don't think they tried to hide anything on the car, but I do not think they are as thorough as their reputation would suggest, or at least they did not seem to be on my car. No major issues, but a lot of minor stuff that should have been caught that's been time consuming. I do have to say they are amazing at after sales support though and have been working with me and bending over backwards to take care of me. Just wish the stuff would have been caught up front.

Gotta give more details than that! Color? Packages? Mileage? Where'd you find it? And yeah, pics. All the pics.
It's an 05 touring package with roughly 38k on the clock. Picked it up from a member in Melbourne, FL.

Here are just 2 pics. She's a little dirty but very clean overall

I am looking for a soft top for sale if anyone has or knows!

Its Miami! - topless is better, am I right ;)
