Will the LSS option handle added power or should one get the standard setup and upgrade at a later time?
I don't want to pay twice for suspension mods if at all possible.
I will not be doing any mods for a while but it's my nature to screw with a good thing. :D

IMO, the LSS option has nothing to do with power. It's about cornering and you can corner as fast in a less powerful car.

Thank you for the reply. I have just always heard that before you add power take care of the suspension first.

The problem is you heard that from people not tuning a Lotus:D

For most cars you will get more improvement per dollar if you upgrade the suspension first. Lotus optimizes the suspension and leaves the horsepower wars to you.

I think a better rule is add brakes if you add power. :) But the Lotus has good brakes.

What l8brakr said. People say that to counteract most people that add bolt on hp and ignore suspension needs. The Elise will be fine.
